Immersed in one of the most beautiful Tuscan landscape, Villa la Rondine is located in the Val d'Arbia, just 4 km away from Buonconvento and 17 km from Montalcino.
The nearest village is Ponte d'Arbia (550 m), located along Via Cassia, characterized by the bridge that crosses the Arbia stream and nearby there is a mill, now converted into a hotel, and a small chapel.
Buonconvento is one of Italy's most beautiful towns, situated along the ancient Via Francigena. Here you can find a supermarket and many kind of shops (butcher, pharmacy, bakery, greengrocer and ice cream shop...).
Montalcino, known for the production of the "Brunello" wine, is characterized by pristine streets and stunning landscapes. Furthermore we also recommend a visit to the nearby abbey of Sant’Antimo, extraordinary example of Romanesque Lombard-French architecture built in onyx and alabaster.
We suggest to reach the nearby Val d'Orcia, recognized in 2004 as UNESCO World Heritage Site. This area is 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:
- Castiglione d'Orcia, a medieval village located on a steep rocky hill upon which stands the fortress of Tentennano;
- Pienza, the town of Pius II, famous for the "pecorino cheese", and also the set of Franco Zeffirelli's “Romeo and Juliet” movie;
- San Quirico d'Orcia, the heart of the Val d'Orcia and one of the most remarkable examples of medieval town planning.
- Montepulciano, thermal center with regal palaces, as well as the home of “Vino Nobile”.
Among Val d'Arbia are 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.
It is also worth visiting Siena and its surroundings: here you will find other medieval gems, of incomparable charm and still remained intact, like San Gimignano, Monteriggioni and San Galgano.
