This extraordinary beautiful area of Italy sits between the land south of Siena and the borders of Umbria. Characteristic of Val D’Orcia are the villa’s open, breathaking views of Mount Amiata, with the unchanged landscape reminescent of old master paintings. The nearby San Casciano dei Bagni, a beautiful, unspoiled medieval village, is just 10 minutes away by car and a rather well-kept secret south of Siena. This intimate, luxurious haven is ideal for private getaways and family reunions.

Villa Aiola provides maximum comfort in a peaceful, refined and very private atmosphere. Guests can enjoy walks and bike rides through the property’s private paths and visits to the nearby Montepulciano, Montalcino, and Cetona - famous for their history, cuisine and wineries. Also close is San Casciano dei Bagni - its best kept secret is an old Roman spa offering therapeutic thermal spring waters and beauty/health treatments. Enjoy typical local cuisine in this villa prepared by a Tuscan cook who has mastered the traditional culinary skills of the region.

What a wonderful time we all had on vacation! The Villa was spectacular and the people that cared for us there were incredibly lovely. We never met Barbara the "house manager" BUT "G" (whom we called that because her name (she said) was too long and complicated) was simply a wonderful and she took care of everything. Carlo (I think her husband) helped us with bags and was so sweet. Rita the chef cooked us two amazing Meals which might have been the best meals Lisa & I had in Italy all together! (I do want her recipe for the fagioli & bread soup she made us on the first night- still dreaming about it.)
