Tuscany - Pienza
Location and Surrounding Area
Immersed in the peaceful Tuscan countryside, this magnificent six-bedroom country house is ideally located to explore the region’s cultural highlights and most spectacular natural wonders. With wonderful views of the surrounding hills, this 19th-century villa is the perfect location for unforgettable day trips to the most beautiful towns in Tuscany. The villa is just a stone’s throw from Pienza, such a perfect miniature of Renaissance architecture that its entire center is recognized by UNESCO.
In less than half an hour by car, you can easily reach the medieval town of Montepulciano. Standing high atop a hill not far from Siena, the town of Montepulciano boasts elegant Renaissance palaces, ancient churches, charming squares and breathtaking views over the wonderful Val d’Orcia. In just one hour by car, you can also reach Montalcino, extremely well-known for the production of its Brunello red wine, one of the world’s most appreciated Italian wines.
The villa is also a few kilometers from Siena. Its ancient red brick buildings, the scallop-shaped main square Piazza del Campo and the Cathedral Square, dominated by the zebra-striped Duomo, make it an absolute must for anyone traveling to Tuscany. Effectively an open-air museum celebrating the Gothic, Siena boasts secular monuments that have retained both their medieval forms and their exceptional art collections, providing plenty to marvel at.
Explore Grosseto and wander around its 16th-century Medici walls, now transformed into gardens perfect for a pleasant walk. The wide walls form a hexagonal shape and enclose the whole of the historic center of the city. Enjoy a Tuscan lunch before visiting the Romanesque cathedral. Originally dating back to the 13th-century, it was extensively remodeled in the 19th-century. Then visit the smaller churches of San Francesco and San Pietro, which date back to the Medieval period.
The villa is also a few kilometers from San Gimignano, one of the best preserved medieval towns in Italy. From afar, San Gimignano looks like a town from a Renaissance painting: a circle of 13th-century walls enclosing tall, teetering stone towers. Its towers make it instantly recognizable, but the art treasures held within its walls are just as remarkable. Although the town is small, there is enough art, architecture and fine food to keep you busy for more than one day.
