Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Casa Olivastra is on the edge of Val d'Orcia & the foothills of Monte Amiata .Mention Tuscany, this is the region that readily comes to mind, the rolling Sienese hills, studded with medieval hilltowns & trimmed with avenues of cypress trees. The classic views of Tuscany, its vineyards & olive groves can all be found here with sunflower filled fields scattered with poppies. (See the pictures) Monasteries are a major attraction of the area Sant, Antimo & Monte Oliveto Maggiore are two of Tuscany's most beautiful .The thermal springs & spas with warm open air bathing pools are equally spectacular. A drive through the sunflower fields of the Marrema to the Tuscan coast (1.5 hrs) means countryside & coast can both be enjoyed.
