The Tuscany region
The region is well known for its Medieval and Renaissance art, architecture, charming hamlets, wineries, craftmanship, gardens, spectacular views.
Hiking, biking, golfing, spas, wine tasting, food markets, cooking courses, restaurants, outlet shopping, museums, and much more…are available not far from Podere Scopicciolo.
It is a small hill town, off the beaten path about 3 miles from our property. It is little known, despite the fact that it celebrates its own horse race - just like Siena’s Palio - in July, sometimes performed by the same jockeys. It has no souvenir stores, but true family run stores selling local vegetables and meat from local farms.
