The Tuscany region
Siena Province is a variety colors and tastes representing the essence of Tuscany.
They enclose an extraordinary historical, artistic, cultural and environmental well-recognized by UNESCO which has declared four places of this province Heritage of mandkind: Siena, San Gimignano, Pienza and Val d'Orcia.
Handicraft and food are other ways to tell about Siena Province, from the crystal to pottery, from wine, olive oil to sweeties. Culture, tradition and local identity in the setting of a unique landscape and a variety of natural and protected enviroments. The spirit of these lands is expressed through its respect for nature, for man and his culture.
Crete Senesi have the flavour of a daydream with your feet placed firmly on the ground, because “anatomically” they are the impalpable soul of a fascinating body, sometimes expressed in the sculpted forms of a Greek statue, sometimes in the curves of a tempting siren.
The Crete Senesi, then, as a voyage of the soul, an itinerary of discovery to be followed in the same spirit as the Grand Tour, without seeking destinations that are as mystical as they are useless. Sailing through the earth waves of the Crete Senesi, each of us finds places that “speak” with the breath of the wind and the magic of unpredictable lights.
There are no icons such as piazzas, cathedrals or castles that identify this territory. Only intimate corners like that cypress, that old smallholding, the curve of that dirt road, the window of that bed & breakfast.
The landscape is a triumph of essentialness and harmony, a timeless image, a picture that blends the forms of an Etruscan graffito and a sign of modern art. It is a harmony that gets inside you and has the power to bring your energies back into balance.
