Things to do in Val d'Orcia
Guests of the country house can choose between a large variety of activities during their stay. They can visit the different villages of Siena (such as Pienza, Montalcino, San Quirico d'Orcia), rich with history and art. Or guests can also organize hiking excursions into the forests of the Natural Park of Valley d’Orcia or the nature preserves of the Mountain Amiata. Obviously, many guests take advantage of our close location to Montalcino to visit the different vineyards that produce the famous “Brunello di Montalcino”. In about 30 minutes by car you can also reach the vineyards of Montepulciano where another important Tuscan wine is produced, the “Nobile di Montepulciano”.
The thermal baths of Bagno Vignoni are another big attraction of the area. The source of these natural baths is the surrounding area of the Mountain Amiata, the highest inactive volcano in Italy. The nearest thermal baths to the apartments are the baths of San Filippo and Vignoni (Bagni San Filippo and Bagno Vignoni). The thermal baths of Bagno Vignoni consist of the main square of the town entirely filled with hot water, creating a large natural thermal bath. This fantastic attraction is only 10 minutes away by car from the country house. It’s also easy to reach the baths of Chianciano, Montepulciano and San Casciano from our location.
