About the neighbourhood
Val d'Orcia is in the heart of Tuscany, south of Siena, surrounded by the hills that separate Lazio from Umbria. It extend along the track of one of the most beautiful Italian roads, the ancient 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 valley offers natural and artistic elements of immense value, as well as the five villages 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.
Getting around
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'Orcia, 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.
