The Val d'Orcia is as picturesque as it is made out to be. We hired a car and drove up and down it visiting various hilltop towns in the area. Each view was breathtaking. We were there in early July and the roads were not...More
We opted to avoid Siena and Chianti, with only three days available, and used our car instead to explore the valley around Montepulciano, taking in Torrita di Siena, Pienza, Monte Amiata and the thermal springs at Bagni San Felippo.
Round almost every corner were far-reaching...More
Valdorcia, as Italians called it, is a beautiful region of Tuscany, between Siena and Monte Amiata. Everything is here: green hills and picturesque villages, waves of vineyards and lines of cypress trees, rich countryside and beautiful estates, hilltop towns with elegant buildings, Renaissance temples and...More
If you go to Tuscany, you can be lured to the more famous places like Sienna and Chianti. It is in Tuscany, however, where you will be experiencing true Tuscan vistas, quiet but authentic old towns, as well the best two wine regions in Tuscany...More
The Val d'Orcia region is very nice. I visited during mid-September and while the views are still beautiful I think they are probably better in spring, ,summer, when everything is blossoming and green.
The towns in the region are pretty small and quite close to...More
It was our third trip to Tuscany with a car and second to Val D’Orcia. It is hard to imagine more beautiful nature, better walks and better food as well. We stayed at the delightful Relais Villa Grazianella close to Montepulciano and our expectations were...More
We recently had the pleasure of being the first guests to stay for a week at Podere Palazzo in the beautiful area of Castiglione D'orcia.
Our hosts were the lovely Luc & Jacqueline who couldn't have made us feel more welcome, from the welcome drinks...More
What an incredible journey to Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano. High in the mountains with majestic views. Dario and Paolo were the perfect hosts. The wine and cheese tasting and lunch with the group was well worth the full day trip. One of our top rated...More
With all of the off the chart reviews and mystical experiences I read about I guess I was expecting something different. I mean sure it is nice but nothing THAT special. I felt like I was missing something but we travelled around quite a bit...More
The most breathtaking region of Tuscany with the seemingly infinite lush rolling hills covered with cypress trees and dotted with gorgeous country villas and castles that Tuscany is known for. Bordered by great wine country too! Covers ground between the known Nobile wine region of...More

Hi, We started our Italy trip off with 3 nights in Rome/rented our car there on day 4 of the trip and drove to our next destination (villa in Reggello (a commune of Florence)) and we hit Val D'Orcia on our drive from the first hotel to the next. People don't usually stay around that area, they seem to mostly stay in Rome, Florence, etc. and hit the Val D'Orcia region either through a wine tour that picks you up with a bus or driving through like we did. We also did a wine tour that hit Montepulciano, Pienza, and Montalcino, which are can't miss spots for any Tuscan trip!
