The apartment is located on one of the sides of the farmhouse, ensuring that guests have complete privacy. Podere Pietreta is a large, old house from the eighteenth-century, entirely in stone, that was recently the subject of a careful and passionate restoration, maintaining the particular architectural qualities of the structure and using only original materials. The estate is positioned on a hill, in a position of exceptional beauty within the natural and artistic park of Val d'Orcia, declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. The farmhouse, 500m above sea level, dominates the hills that slope towards the plane: from here you can admire a vast natural setting, from Monte Cetona to the cliffs of San Casciano, from the rock of Celle sul Rigo to the slopes of Monte Amiata. In addition to one of the most fascinating views in Tuscany, there is a mild and pleasant climate, which benefits from its sheltered position and the ancient oak trees that surround the estate of Podere Pietreta.More

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 eyxtends along the track of one of the most beautiful Italian roads, the 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 valle offers natural and artistic elements of immense value. 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'Oricia, Chiusi, Cetona, Cortona, Arezzo, Siena...
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.
