TUSCANY

Villa Valente is an elegant country house located in the magical Val d’Orcia whose typical undulating hills and golden fields inspired, and still do, many artists. Val d’Orcia has been recognized a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004 for its beauty and cultural importance. The famous towns of Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, Bagno Vignoni e San Quirico are in easy reach and all well worth a visit.

The impressive views of Val d'Orcia, which inspired so many Renaissance painters, is dotted with little villages, castles, abbeys and hamlets, each telling a fascinating ancient story. Time here can still pass slowly and you can enjoy every second of it.
Visit the famous town of Montalcino, best-known for the distinguished Brunello red wine, and the artistic jewel town of Pienza, which was used as a backdrop to Franco Zeffirelli’s masterpiece: “Romeo and Juliet”. The walled hilltop medieval town of Montepulciano, the picturesque Cetona, the charming thermal villages of San Casciano dei Bagni and Bagno Vignoni are also well worth a visit.
To explore Florence on a day trip, the best way is to leave your car at the Chiusi-Chianciano train station and hop on one of the many trains to Florence - Santa Maria Novella Station (they run every hour and in less than two hours you are in Florence’s historical center).
