Crete senesi | Trequanda, Church di S.S. Pietro and Andrea and Town Hall


Podere Santa Pia is a beautiful stone farmhouse only 2 km away from Castiglioncello Bandini. The main house is spacious, comfortable and well furnished and offers its guests a breathtaking view over the Maremma hills. As one drives down to the property you can’t help feeling a sense of anticipation: turning into a gloriously open space surrounded by trees and ultimately this almost perfect holiday home, it is difficult not to be overwhelmed by the setting and the stunning, far reaching views.
Trequanda is situated about 70 km north of Podere Santa Pia. The Church di S.S. Pietro and Andrea has a remarquable fourteenth-century facade, with a two-tone checkerboard effect obtained by alternating tuff and travertine. Inside the church is a panel painting depicting the Madonna and Child by Taddeo di Bartoli, a painter of the Sienese School during the early Renaissance.

Trekking in Trequanda

Trekking in Trequanda | Anello Trequanda – Petroio – Montisi – Montelifré

We selected a beautiful hike in the Crete Senesi, connecting Trequanda, Petroio, Montisi and Montelifré. The itinerary starts and ends in Trequanda.
Park your car on Via dei Giardini Pubblici, next to the Parco Ornella Pancirolli, or on Via Cacciaconti, just outside the walls of Trequanda.
Enjoy a croissant and coffee in the morning, and watch the locals pass by in Osteria Cafe Ciriera (Piazza Giuseppe Garibaldi 23, in front of the church), before taking off.
