The Tuscany region
Val d'Orcia is in the heart of Tuscany, south of Siena, surrounded by the hills that separate Lazio from Umbria and extend along the track of one of the most beautiful Italian roads, the Roman Via Cassia, leading ultimately to the slopes of Monte Amiata.
In 2005, Val d'Orcia was listed by UNESCO as a world heritage site. The Valle offers natural and artistic riches of immense value, as well as the five communes which make it up and which form the Artistic, Natural and Cultural Park of Val d'Orcia, with the aim of ensuring the active conservation of the environment, as well as artistic and natural heritage.
Val d'Orcia also represents a precious food and wine stop: it is located in the centre of the Chianti areaand the Nobile di Montepulciano, it is the homeland of the pasture meat, forest mushrooms and, above all, exceptional cheeses, fruit of the competition between traditional local types and recent inclusions of Sardinian sheep farming.
Podere Pietreta is the ideal point of departure for short excursions (30/60 minutes) to some of the most appealing places in Tuscany: Bagno Vignoni, Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Radicofani, San Quirico d'Oricia, Chiusi, Cetona, Cortona, Arezzo, Siena...
In 20 minutes you are among the forests of Monte Amiata, Umbria is half an hour by car.
Another exceptional characteristic is the presence, less than 30 minutes away, of numerous thermal baths, many of them among the best known: Terme di San Casciano, the pools of Sarteano, San Filippo, the hydrothermal complexes of Chianciano, etc.
During the entire year, there are many folklore events, the feasts of traditional products and artisan fares, cultural events, theatrical and musical performances.
For lovers of sport there is an embarrassment of riches: Trekking, horse riding, alpine skiing, swimming (including thermal baths), sporting fishing, car rallies...
