Charming farmhouse, set in the Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO world heritage site, restored to the highest standard with an eye for detail.
This prestigious farmhouse has external stone walls, a typical feature of Tuscan dwellings, while internally we find terracotta floors.
The superb panorama on the Val d’Orcia and Pienza can be enjoyed from every window of the house.

Since 2004 the Val d’Orcia has been a UNESCO world heritage site and the Municipality of Castiglione d’Orcia is one of the fundamental elements of its landscape.
The Val d’Orcia is an exceptional example of the way the landscape was re-written during the Renaissance to represent the ideals of the good governance and to create an aesthetically pleasing picture.
The landscape of the Val d’Orcia has been celebrated by painters from the Scuola Senese, which flourished during the Renaissance. Images of the Val d’Orcia, and particularly the descriptions of landscapes where people are depicted as living in harmony with nature, have become icons of the Renaissance and have profoundly influenced the development of the philosophy of the landscape.
