Località Nano -, Monticchiello di Pienza 53026 Pienza (Siena)
The farmhouse is a 19th century country estate surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, rolling hills and woods, which offers spacious charming accommodations in one of the most desirable areas of southern Tuscany. It is situated in the province of Siena in the peaceful heart of Val d'Orcia, a splendid area which officially became part of UNESCO patrimony in 2004.
In the historic structure which has been carefully and completely restored, we offer hospitality to those who seek a completely relaxing vacation in a warm, friendly environment of rare beauty. Up to 30 people can be hosted at farm.
A total of 14 guests can stay in the Villa, and each apartment or room has raised wood beam or arched ceilings, antique terracotta flooring, rustic refined furnishings, and spectacular views over the valleys. The three independent houses on the estate, all restored in the same manner as the Villa, include the comfortable Casetta (i.e. the little house) with private patios; the Fornace (i.e. the stove) with a splendid country kitchen (these first two having sweeping views over Monticchiello); and the Terrazza (i.e. the terrace) with incomparable views of Montepulciano from the spacious, private second story terrace.
The rooms sleep 2, the apartments sleep 4, and the independent houses can host 4-8 persons.
At 500m altitude, the estate sits on a hilltop overlooking the jewels of Tuscan medieval and renaissance architecture: Montepulciano, Pienza, and the hamlet of Monticchiello. The views spread out over the valleys of Val di Chiana, Monte Amiata and Val d'Orcia, where the historic little towns of San Quirico, Rocca, Castiglione, Bagno Vignoni, Montalcino, Montefolloncio and Buonconvento are nestled in the landscape. A restaurant service is available upon request for the guests of the estate.
Immersed in one of Italy's superior areas of viniculture, the vineyards of farm border the region where Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is produced, and the estate is less than 20 minutes from the world-renown Brunello di Montalcino vineyards.
There are a plethora of options for excursions and day trips in the surrounding area. The Tuscan towns of Siena, Arezzo, and Montalcino, and the Umbrian towns of Perugia, Assisi, and Orvieto are less than one hour from farmhouse by car, while Monticchiello, Pienza, and Montepulciano are all less than 10 km from our estate.
Thanks to the surrounding natural environment perfect for long relaxing walks and excursions, the farm is a place where splendid vacations are made. Those in good shape can follow the paths indicated by the experts or pedal mountain bikes through the magnificent woods and hills. Others can drive along the beautiful, winding roads, rent a scooter, or take a local bus to see nearby sites.

Dining in Tuscany is a genuine pleasure. In addition to sampling our wines and olive oil, we suggest trying some of the local restaurants. Strolling through the cobblestone streets and into the little artisan shops of Montepulciano, Pienza, and other nearby towns is a true delight. Siena holds a weekly market where one can find all sorts of treasures.
Lower Tuscany is rich with natural hot springs, famous since ancient Roman times. The thermal pools of San Casciano dei Bagni, Montepulciano, Chianciano, and Bagno Vignoni offer a great way to take care of body and spirit. All are less than 20 minutes away by car and we can assist with making reservations.
