Set on a wonderfully private piece of land, this area was the exact setting for the Oscar winning movie The English Patient and the breathtaking panoramic countryside scenes from the Gladiator.
Here you are in an area rich with the best that Tuscany has to offer as you are set in a superbly strategic location. This is some of the best driving and sightseeing country around. You have amazing areas all through the Val d’Orcia (Pienza, world-famous for its town and cheeses, Montalcino & Montepulciano, arguably Italy’s most important wine territory) all between a 15 and 30 minutes drive. The drive through Acquapendente & Pitigliano are some of the most beautiful in Italy, period. Siena is certainly a day trip, San Quirico d’Orcia, a beautiful little nook of a town is only 15 minutes away, Lake Bolsena is near, even Orvieto is only an hour away. Arezzo & Cortona are only an hour and 15 minutes away and Perugia, 90 minutes. Here, you are in sightseeing heaven.
