Countryside
Ville d’Orcia is an ancient farm made of two buildings, one dating back to the XVII century and the other to the XIII century. Both buildings were recently refurbished to become a perfect holiday destination. The restoration works were held with very good taste preserving all the original features belonging to the ancient Tuscan traditions with an eye for the details to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
 
The apartments have maintained the wooden beamed ceilings and terracotta floors completed by colour washed walls with brickworks. The furnishing is in the typical rural Tuscan style perfectly melting with the architecture of the building. All the apartments have a private outside area equipped with table and chairs to eat outside.
 
Thanks to its privileged position in the Natural and Artistic Park of the Val d’Orcia (a Unesco world heritage), Ville d’Orcia offers extraordinary views over the renowned clay hills (Crete Senesi) and stretches as far as the Mount Amiata in the distance and Montalcino. Located between Pienza and San Quirico d’Orcia it is a perfect starting base to visit the area with Montepulciano and Siena easily reachable.

Restaurant: a warm and welcoming atmosphere where you can enjoy all the typical dishes of our area, homemade pasta and genuine meat, accompanied by a careful selection of fine wines.

 

GARDEN & SWIMMING POOL


Located on a hillside in front of the town of Pienza Ville d’Orcia enjoys spectacular views of the Val d’orcia pointed with the hilltop villages of the area.
 
The extensive gardens are perfectly manicured and stone paths cross the velvet lawn to reach the apartments and the various parts of the property. The grounds around the property gently descend towards the pool (10 x 5 meters, 0,80 - 1,80 meters deep) terrace commanding amazing views of the countryside surrounding. The pool area is perfectly equipped with sun umbrellas and sun beds.
 
In the gardens you can also find an area equipped with a ping pong table and other children plays and the Jacuzzi pool area. 
 
The property offers also a Biolake which is very much appreciated by the guests (30 x 30 meters, 0 - 2,2 meters deep). It is a natural ecosystem where the fresh waters are kept perfectly clean without chemical elements but using plants for a natural oxygenation (phyto-purification). The lake is completed by sun beds and sun umbrellas.
 
There is another lake in the valley still part of the farmland, which is only used for fishing.
