Surroundings: Agriturismo near Siena in Toscana, Montepulciano
The farmhouse lies between the Valdorcia and the Valdichiana, well-known sites since the Roman age for the production of extra virgin olive oil, wine and wheat.
A stay here means combining relax, wellness, sightseeing to the many Renaissance and medieval towns, churches, museums and untouched landscape. Food and wine have always played a crucial role in our tradition (extra virgin olive oil, the famous red wines such as "Chianti", "Nobile di Montepulciano", "Brunello di Montalcino", t-bone "chianina" steak and pecorino cheese).
We are ideally located for local excursions and pilgrimages; in a day trip you can visit San Gimignano, Pisa, Orvieto, Todi, Assisi, the outsanding abbeys of San Galgano, Sant'Antimo and Monte Oliveto Maggiore. This area of the Val d'Orcia has been able to maintain its historical-linguistic identity and villages like Pienza, Radicofani, Monticchiello and the numerous hot springs are clear signs of these antique traditions.
The valley with its unique clay hills (the "crete senesi"), created by natural erosion by water and winds, is just perfect for hiking, horseback riding and bike rides among the sweet rolling hills, vineyards, olive groves, woods and wheat fields.
