Overview

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.
