Walking from Sant'Antimo to Sant'Angelo in Colle

   
   

Podere Santa Pia is a large old rambling Tuscan farmhouse, located on a hill among olive groves, Mediterranean macchia, and vineyards in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma. A winding scenic road, just outside the village of Castiglioncello Bandini, is leading to this former cloister, hidden in a seduced valley.
The surrounding hills, crossed with dirt roads and secret paths are ideal for hiking.

The trail from the Abbey of Sant’Antimo towards Sant’Angelo in Colle is situated north of Podere Santa Pia. Take a walk on the strada bianche or dirt road to Sant’Angelo in Colle and have lunch at Il Pozzo or Il Leccio, or go to Pino in Sant'Angelo Scalo for delicious everyday fare. You can enjoy some exclusive wine tours and tasting experiences in the valleys below the abbey.

 

The trail


This is an itinerary in the great scenery of Brunello vineyards in the Val d’Orcia between Castelnuovo dell'Abate and Sant'Angelo in Colle. There is no difficulty in following the track.And a visit to the Abbey of Sant'Antimo, one of the highlights of romanesque architecture, is a must.

You are in the midst of some great wineries: Poggio di Sotto, Ciacci Piccolomini (Località Molinello) and Uccelliera Di Cortonesi Andrea (45 Localita' Pod. Uccelliera) are all nearby. Or check out Mastrojanni, owned by the coffee producing Illy family. Plan in advance to arrange a visit to one of these great Brunello wineries in the surroundings of Castelnuovo dell’Abate or on the way to Sant'Angelo in Colle. A map with some of the most particular wineries on the southern slopes of Montalcino can be found here.
