A holiday in Tuscany

This sun-drenched land of Tuscany has become synonymous with the ideal life. But it didn't happen by chance. Since the Etruscans, the independence-loving Tuscans have treated their breathtaking countryside with sagacious respect and built hamlets and hill towns in which they perfected a culture of simplicity, beauty, neighborliness, good food, and love of daily life.

Situated just beyond the southern edge of the Brunello wine-producing area, and midway between Siena and Lago Bolsena, the property could not be better designed and located for a holiday that combines lazy days of dolce far niente with sightseeing and wine-tasting in some of the most beautiful areas of southern Tuscany.
