Podere Santa Pia is a beautiful stone farmhouse in southern Tuscany. Located on the outskirts of Castiglioncello Bandini, in a hilly and unspoilt land, Podere Santa Pia is one of the best places to slow traveling in Tuscany. This formal cloister offers the quiet tranquility of a private retreat, with numerous attractions and beautiful nature reserves within easy reach. The most interesting artistic, historical and cultural sites of southern Tuscany are nearby, and are awaiting your discovery.

Biancane or badlands in the Crete Senesi


Just across the border of the Val d’Orcia, but still within the spectacular panoramic scenery of this World Heritage site, is the circular walk from Montisi to Montelifrè, an itinerary in the great scenery of the Crete Senesi, just about 70 km north of Podere Santa Pia. This is a veryshort but very suggestive itinerary. In addition to the visit of Montisi, a town with a beautiful historic center, and the ruined Castle of Monelifrè, the trail offers panoramic views of the Crete Senesi. The departure and the arrival are foreseen in in Montisi, where it is possible to park and shelter from the sun.

The magnificent hills of the Crete Senesi offer endless views with evocative and suggestive landscapes. Typical conformations of the land are the badlands, the calanchi and biancane that give the landscape its characteristic gray color and a sometimes lunar appearance.
