About this location

The Tuscany region

The Castello di Grotti is located 12km south of Siena in the Crete Senesi. The castle is a perfect base to explore southern Tuscany. It gives easy access to the most popular destinations in Tuscany, such as Siena, the Chianti, San Gimignano, the Val d'Orcia, Montalcino, San Quirico d'Orcia, Pienza, Montepulciano and Cortona.

It is perfect to visit the Maremma area as well and to enjoy the natural hot springs in Petriolo.

Crete Senesi

The area where the Castle is located is "postcard Tuscany", with its gentle rolling hills, the cipress-lined roads and the amazing views over the countryside and the hilltop towns.

Siena is a very famous city which offers amazing sights, art, excellent cuisine, and the local flavours of a small Italian city.
