The farmholuiday borders on a nature park in the Val d'Orcia, at Castelluccio di Pienza. Its location offers a panoramic view of two natural reserves: Pietraporciana and Lucciolabella. From the pool, nestled in an olive grove, guests enjoy a marvelous view of the entire valley. Organic farming methods, offering fruit, vegetables, extra virgin olive oil. Near the spas of Chianciano and Bagno Vignoni.

We offer guests 4 rooms with independent entrance and private bath. Three also have a fireplace. The two largest rooms may be rented as a flat with a spacious kitchen/living room (5 + 2 accommodations); otherwise, the entire building may be rented (9+2 accommodations).

Suite La Capriata: large room with bath at entrance, characterized by an evocative truss and a tub in bedroom built in a niche, as well as a fireplace.

Suite La Torre: large room on upper floor in an ancient tower, characterized by a cozy entrance with a large private bath, decorated ceilings, and spacious mezzanine (studio), with fireplace.

Bedroom La Grancia: large room overlooking the garden; sun-filled with bath and double shower; high, spectacular ceilings, with lovely corner fireplace.

Bedroom Il Granaio: a smaller room, but very inviting and sun-filled, with mezzanine, bath with shower, overlooking the garden.

The structure of the farmhouse is complex, its oldest part consisting in the ancient tower that guarded Castelluccio. From the windows of the residence guests may enjoy a magnificent view of the entire Val di Chiana, and from the road into a lush park of the Val d'Orcia guests may catch sight of Monte Amiata. The farmhouse was totally renovated in 2009 in bioarchitecture style (bricks, lime putty, wood, terracotta, and cork). Heating from biomass systems and solar energy.

L'agriturismo La Grencaia si trova ai confini settentrionali del Parco Artistico Naturale della Val d'Orcia, in località Castelluccio di Pienza (dettto anche Castelluccio della Foce, in quanto ora fa parte della fattoria della Foce). Qui si incontrano i confini amministrativi dei tre comuni di Pienza, Montepulciano e Chianciano Terme. Castelluccio è un antico castello che domina la Val d'Orcia e fu costruito per controllare l'accesso alla valle da nord.

Il casale è stato completamente ristrutturato nel 2009 seguendo i dettami della bioarchitettura: i materiali utilizati sono stati il laterizio, il grassello di calce, il legno, il cotto e il sughero nella coibentazione; il sistema di riscaldamento utilizza come fonti energetiche le biomasse e il solare termico. Gli ospiti pertanto troveranno una struttura ricettiva salubre e rispettosa dell'ambiente, anche se dotata di tutti i comfort necessari.

Ampi, diversificati e a totale disposizione degli ospiti sono gli spazi esterni, che garantiscono una permanenza all'insegna di un rapporto diretto con l'ambiente e con i lavori agricoli stagionali.

La Casa, a cui si accede dalla loggia, è costituita da quattro camere molto grandi, due delle quali en suite, tutte le camere hanno bagno privato con doccia e tre di esse hanno un caminetto, due camere hanno oltre alla doccia anche la vasca. La struttura può ospitare 9 persone (+2 bambini).

Sono a disposizione degli ospiti ampi spazi esterni attrezzati con barbecue e grande tavolo per mangiar all'aperto, spazi ombreggiati, piscina, legna per i caminetti; inoltre è possibile acquistare direttamente in azienda vino, olio extravergine di oliva biologico, patate, frutta e verdura di stagione che possono essere raccolte direttamente nell'orto e nel frutteto: i prezzi sono veramente buoni (prezzi da filiera corta!!!).
