Villa Vitaleta is situated at 3 km from Pienza where you can find some shops and essential services.
Pienza is the town of Pius II, famous for the “Pecorino cheese”.
Pienza is immersed in one of the most beautiful Tuscan landscape, Val d'Orcia, recognized in 2004 as UNESCO World Heritage Site. This area is, in fact, the quintessential Tuscany, studded with delightful medieval villages, stone cottages, gentle hills, vineyards, olive groves, cypresses and grazing sheep.
Among the hill towns of this area you will find:
- San Quirico d'Orcia, the heart of the Val d'Orcia and one of the most remarkable examples of medieval town planning;
- Castiglione d'Orcia, a medieval village located on a steep rocky hill upon which stands the fortress of Tentennano;
- Montepulciano, thermal center with regal palaces, as well as the home of “Vino Nobile”;
- Montalcino, known for the production of the “Brunello” wine.
For those who are looking for wellness and relaxation, the province of Siena has several thermal centres like the above-mentioned Montepulciano, Bagno Vignoni and Chianciano.
Another itinerary we suggest to follow is that of Val d'Arbia, along which you can find the renowned “Crete Senesi”, adored by photographers, poets and tourists from all over the world. Crete are a landscape of metaphysical beauty characterized by typical undulations clayey eroded by weather events. A good observation point to enjoy this beauty is the Abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore, a place of meditation and prayer, surrounded by woods, where you can admire the frescoes by Sodoma and Signorelli.
Lastly, we suggest to reach Cortona (50 km), Etruscan and Medieval town from Valdichiana area, built on a hilltop. This town boasts a glorious past: the legendary de' Medici family ruled it in the 15th century. Dream destination and synonymous with elegance and historic charm, Cortona is placed in a perfect location, close to the border between Tuscany and Umbria.
