The space

The agriturismo borders on a nature park in the Val d'Orcia, at Castelluccio di Pienza. Its location offers a panoramic view of two natural reserves: Pietraporciana and Lucciolabella. From the pool, nestled in an olive grove, guests enjoy a marvelous view of the entire valley. Organic farming methods, offering fruit, vegetables, extra vergin olive oil. Near the spas of Chianciano and Bagno Vignoni.

Guest access

We offer guests 4 rooms with independent entrance and private bath. Three also have a fireplace. The two largest rooms may be rented as a flat with a spacious kitchen/living room (5 + 2 accommodations); otherwise, the entire building may be rented. Suite La Capriata: large room with bath at entrance, characterized by an evocative truss and a tub in bedroom built in a niche, as well as a fireplace. Suite La Torre: large room on upper floor in an ancient tower, characterized by a cozy entrance with a large private bath, decorated ceilings, and spacious mezzanine (studio), with fireplace. Camera La Grancia: large room overlooking the garden; sun-filled with bath and double shower; high, spectacular ceilings, with lovely corner fireplace. Camera Il Granaio: a smaller room, but very inviting and bright with mezzanine, bath with shower, overlooking the garden. The structure of the farmhouse is complex, its oldest part consisting in the ancient tower that guarded Castelluccio. From the windows of the residence guests may enjoy a magnificent view of the entire Val di Chiana, and from the road into a lush park of the Val d'Orcia guests may catch sight of Monte Amiata. The farmhouse was totally renovated in 2009 in bioarchitecture style (bricks, lime putty, wood, terracotta, and cork). Heating from biomass systems and solar energy.

Interaction with guests

The farmhouse extends over 54 hectares along the hills between the Val d'Orcia and the Val di Chiana and uses certified organic farming methods. The olive and fruit trees (970 olive trees and 280 fruit trees) surround the villa and are located on a vast plain surrounded by fields, forests, and broom-covered furrows. Spacious outdoor areas where guests may enjoy direct contact with nature or take part in seasonal farming activities. The pool (June–mid-October) is perfectly part of the landscape, thanks to a careful use of materials and the shape of the pool that calls to mind old stone troughs. In addition to the pool (12 m long), there is another pool suited to relax, with low water, chairs, and small waterfall. Lounge chairs and umbrellas also offered. On a plain, under the shade of old maple trees, there is a large table and barbecue for meals outdoors, where to cook meat and seasonal vegetables.

We loved our stay! Everything was perfect. Fantastic location, lovely pool, great house and Franco was really helpful, friendly and accommodating. Freshly picked vegetables from their garden was a total bonus. Thank you!

This place is unbelievable. So much better than the photos. All the Tuscan charm and immaculate. So much space and privacy for our party of 7, but wonderful places to be together. Franco is a great host and charming man. It's about 15 minutes from Montepulciano, which is my favorite town (so far). I could go on and on. Loved every moment there!

We rented the whole house for just under a week and the place was great. Peaceful location, gorgeous views and an immaculately maintained house and gardens. Franco was a perfect host, coming to check the pool every day with Rambo the dog for company and we were also treated to fresh eggs from his farm and a home baked tart. We couldn't recommend it more. The house is off a quiet private track and only a ten minute drive from Montepulciano. It's also a good base from which to explore other Tuscan towns-you definitely need to rent a car!

Franco & Carla are amazing people. They baked us a cake, they helped us call multiple car garages when we had an issue with our car, wonderful and helpful couple. Franco also helped us with our shopping when we bumped into him at the local supermarket (as our car was full). We booked the villa for my boyfriends 30th, and 10 of us stayed for a week. Really spacious, great kitchen, lovely warm showers, an undercover eating area outside and a great pool for lounging (which is where we spent most of our time). The villa is a few Km away from anything, so no need to worry about noise, it's really spacious, comfy beds, great cooking amenities, and the views are stunning. Franco & Carla greeted us upon arrival and were also there to wave us goodbye. They maintain the villa very well, and I hope to visit them to stay in the future soon. My only gripe would be that there is no fan/air-con, but we managed to get through it. Perfect villa for a great escape.
