Farmhouse Casa Orcia - holiday accommodation in Tuscany with swimming pool is for discerning travelers wishing to spend their holidays in Tuscany. This rental farmhouse is wonderful for a family holiday and located between Pienza (where the english patient was filmed) and San Quirico (a lovely historic town in perfect condition with many shops) (5kms from each town). There is also a small village at 1.5 kms with a bar, Pizzeria and small goods. There are many superb restaurants in all these towns and also at 3 kms the antique thermal spa baths of Bagno Vignoni and the village boasting the Roman remains, enoteca`s, restaurants, pizzerias, breathtaking views and quaint shops.

This area is one of the most sorts after one by the Italians as it has remained un spoilt. Also this is made famous by the photographers who photographed the area for postcards, books and calendars. The area offers so much due to its closeness to Siena, Pienza, Montalcino, San Quirico; the antique thermal baths of Bagno Vignoni and San Fillipo. Florence is an easy day trip. Numerous beautiful medieval villages that have been restored to perfection, yet still maintain their original beauty and lifestyle of the Tuscany of years gone by.

Farmhouse Casa Orcia is located in the Siena area in the middle of a nature reserve full of pheasant, deer, hares, owls and other wildlife. At 20kms there are the towns of the Mount Amiata. The area is also a gastronomic heaven producing cheeses (famous pecorino cheeses of Pienza), fresh handmade pasta, some of the best and most noted wines of Italy, truffles, the famous Porcini mushrooms, wild boar, safron, honey and the Chianina meat.

The locals boast a love of their land; they are very hospitable, friendly and relaxed. The typically Tuscan villages are charming, characteristic and full of history and culture. Small shops with local produce and artifacts line the shaded stone lined streets. For the wine lovers one can sit outside and taste the famous wines of the region at many of the enotecas and bars. The enoteca also serves meals, platters of cheeses and cold cuts (prosciutto, salame etc.).

These characteristic Tuscan towns grasp onto the history of the region with honor, celebrating all the medieval and local festivals as they have done for centuries.

Driving through this area is a treat in itself; Cyprus lined rolling hills spotted with medieval villages and towers. Large country homes and a constant changing landscape depend on the crops of the season. From this location one can easily embark on day trips to Florence, Siena, Cortona, Montepulciano, Montalcino and venture over the hill to discover the magnificent coast line of Maremma only 40mins drive.
