Within secluded pine woods, lies the red Benedictine Abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore, with it’s famous frescoes by Signorelli and Il Sodoma. San Quirico d’Orcia was a key stop for medieval pilgrims travelling the Via Francigena; from there continue on to the pure simplicity of the beautiful Romanesque church of the Abbey at Sant’Antimo.

San Giovanni d'Asso & Montisi

tuscan Lifestyle
tuscan LifestyleSan Giovanni D’Asso epitomises the very essence of Tuscany, with its hilltop setting and slopes running down to valley of the Asso river below. A delightful medieval village, clinging to the walls of its twelfth century castle, and offering traditional bars and small shops selling the excellent local produce, along with Italy’s only truffle museum. There is a fine example of an ancient Romanesque church, San Giovanni Battista, whilst San Pietro in Villare, one of the most important churches in the area is surrounded by striking cypress trees.
Montisi is an archetypal picturesque hamlet. Its many charms include an unusual historic grain tower and a splendid annual jousting contest, the colourful ‘Giostra di Simone’ which is held in full medieval costume every August.

Perfectly situated between these two charming traditional Tuscan villages sits Podere Ampella.
