The
Experience

The Val d’Orcia is rich with stunning landscapes, wineries, food producers, architecture and history. For a truly authentic experience you can stay at this borgo – a cluster of gorgeous 15th-century apartments scattered around a tiny hamlet. Originally they were farmworkers’ cottages and much has been preserved: original stonewalls, paving, archways and inside you’ll find graceful antiques, crisp embroidered linens, books, good art. Superbly equipped kitchens are a joy to cook in and you arrive to a brimming hamper so no need to head straight to the shops. Within the borgo itself is a small shop selling basics, for everything else it’s a short drive. Outside you’ll be wowed by jaw-dropping views of glorious Tuscan countryside; find a shady spot to read, plunge in the pool, sit and dream. You’re looked after expertly by Doriana, who’s worked for the Contessa Piccolomini for many years; she’s also a trained olive oil sommelier and can arrange tours and tastings. You’re spoilt for things to do: thermal baths at Bagno Vignoni, Renaissance towns of Pienza and Montalcino, ancient abbeys, gastronomic delights, hot air ballooning…

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Doriana Giovannoni

  • Lucignano d'Asso: Let's start from our hamlet. An enchanting combination of peacefulness, stunning views of the Tuscan hills, ancient stones and signs of the past, all influenced by the history of the Piccolomini family. A trip down memory lane!
  • The Bosco della Ragnaia: At just 5km from our hamlet, The Bosco della Ragnaia is a woodland park perfect to escape the summer heat. The American artist Sheppard Craige started his work in 1996 and he is still expanding the gardens.
  • Pieve di Corsignano: Pienza is a well-known town, deeply connected with the history of our hamlet, because of Pope Pius II, member of the Piccolomini family. Not so popular though it's the ancient church of Pieve di Corsignano, just out of town.
  • St Anna in Camprena: If you like "The English Patient", you cannot miss the visit of S.Anna in Camprena monastery, just out of our hamlet. This was the location of all the Tuscan scenes of the popular movie. Also remarkable the refectory frescoed by Sodoma
  • Heaven's Door: the Duomo of Siena from above. We can book for you a special guided tour of the rooftops and ceiling of the Duomo in Siena. A rare opportunity to visit the Cathedral from a unique point of view.
  • St Antimo and Monte Oliveto Abbeys: At short distance from our hamlet there are two beautiful abbeys: S. Antimo, among Brunello vineyards, and Monte Oliveto Maggiore, with its frescoed cloister. Two perfect settings to listen to Gregorian chants.
