The Tuscany region
Tuscany is located in central Italy and it is famous for both its beautiful and varied landscape and artistic heritage. Medieval villages, historical towns and castles,country abbeys and monasteries abound and then of course there is Florence, birthplace of Michelangelo, the city famous for its beautiful architecture and wonderful museums and art galleries. Tuscany is also famous for its many spas: Montecatini, Saturnia, Montepulciano, Monsummano and Bagno Vignoni, which offer relaxing holidays thanks to their thermal waters and well-equipped facilities for all types of treatments.
Sarteano is located between Val di Chiana and Val d'Orcia, it is dominated by an imposing XV century castle which stands out against the green backdrop of Monte Cetona. It is a small, quiet walled town with a way of life that seems lost in time. The old town centre spreads out from around the base of the Castle within the town walls and has many beautiful buildings to admire. The Parco delle Piscine is situated outside the old town centre and is famous for its three pools with 24 degree spring water flowing into them. The beautifully laid-out park and impressive facilities have been attracting summer visitors to Sarteano for decades.
Beyond the town walls are dozens of beautiful small villages, each one a jewel in itself and an area of great natural beauty, from the Poggio Rotondo hill with its lush pine forest dotted with grottoes, to Pietra Porciana, once the site of a medieval fortress, now a nature reserve that includes a beech tree wood and panoramic views from the Cella di Bruco. Further breathtaking views can be seen from the summit of Monte Cetona encompassing the lakes of Trasimeno, Montepulciano and Chiusi, with Monte Soratte to the north and the Radicofani fortress, Monte Amiata and the Val d'Orcia to the west. Sarteano also offers pleasant walks close to the town itself on two ancient Etruscan roads, known as the Cupe roads, paved in the local travertine stone and interspersed with cutouts that once housed Etruscan tombs.
