Activities and surrounding

Montepulciano is located in the center of the southern area of Siena, which includes the Val d'Orcia, the Valdichiana and, in part marginal, the Crete Senesi. Therefore, those who stay at the Agriturismo Podere La Rocca can quickly reach the main cities of art such as Siena, Florence, Cortona, Pienza, Montalcino, San Quirico d'Orcia, Orvieto, Lake Trasimeno, the LIPU oasis of Lake Montepulciano and the Etruscan tombs of Chiusi. The Val d'Orcia is a wide valley located in Tuscany, in the province of Siena and partly in that of Grosseto, north and east of Mount Amiata and close to the border with Umbria. Crossed by the river Orcia in the center, which gives it its name, is characterized by pleasant landscapes and various centers of medieval origin, two of which are well known as Pienza and Montalcino. Characteristic tree is the cypress tree, typical foods and wines are the Pici, the cured meats of Cinta Senese, the Pecorino di Pienza, the Brunello di Montalcino and the new denomination of the DOC wine Orcia. Cortona It was one of the 12 cities of the Etruscan confederation, and of its primitive cyclopean walls you can still see imposing stretches just modified by medieval walls. Except for a few beautiful Renaissance palaces, the prevailing character of Cortona's buildings is medieval and contributes to giving the narrow and steep streets a very suggestive aspect. **? I'M SORRY, I'M SORRY, I'M SORRY ? A few kilometers away you can reach important spas such as: the Terme di Montepulciano, Chianciano Terme, Bagno Vignoni, Bagni San Filippo, Rapolano Terme, San Casciano dei Bagni. **[LAUGHS] A visit to Siena is a visit to the Middle Ages. The magnificent cathedral built in 1200 is a marvel of marble floors and beautiful works of art. Stop in Piazza del Campo to admire one of the most beautiful squares in the world, designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, where you will find the Gothic town hall, the fountain of Gaia and the Chapel of the Virgin. Walk through the streets of the old town full of magnificent monuments. **CRETE SENESI** A landscape that has no secrets, but that is difficult to decipher, because it requires acute observation and a deep capacity for understanding. I am a patch that whitens when everything is green and green when everything is gray. A land that appears soft, almost velvety, but cracked, split, rough in reality. Staying at our Agriturismo in August you can attend two important events in Montepulciano: The bravio delle Botti, which takes place in the last week of August, when the 8 districts contend for a painted cloth and roll a barrel of 80 kg for about 1800 m uphill. Calici di stelle is the most important itinerant tasting event. In August, in the historic centre of Montepulciano, during the evening of San Lorenzo, the wineries producing Vino Nobile and Rosso di Montepulciano let the public taste their wines.

    "Amazing, classic agriturismo/hotel with great bathrooms!"

    03/19/2018

    Beautiful countryside, 15 minutes from Montepulciano,quiet,rural and great breakfast.Pool area is lovely and clean. Rooms are spacious and with luxurious bathrooms (spa bath). Only downside is the decoration, it could do with some updating. Very traditionally Italian. Classic but quite old fashioned now.
