Make a holiday rental house of villa in Val d’Orcia – Amiata, Italy your home away from home

The Val d’Orcia lies in the heart of the Tuscan countryside. Surrounding Siena, the Val d’Orcia is home to Tuscany’s highest peak, the conical, extinct volcano of Monte Amiata, which offers magnificent panoramic views across the famous landscape of Tuscany. The Val d’Orcia is a beautiful land, where the relationship between man and land is still magnificently maintained. It is such a beautiful region that UNESCO named it a World Heritage site.

Things to do on holiday in Val d’Orcia – Amiata, Italy

The beautiful, distinctive landscape of the Val d’Orcia has attracted generations of artists to paint the stark contrasts of blue sky and golden corn, the almost perfectly conical hills topped with fortified villages, or some of Tuscany’s iconic abbeys, bridges, castles or villas.

Despite the Val d’Orcia’s undoubted natural beauty, there are very few signs of tourism here, and the only holiday accommodation you will find in the region are privately owned, self catering Val d’Orcia villas, houses or apartments.

The Val d’Orcia is a haven for walkers and cyclists alike. There are so many places to walk, and due to the world class wine production in the area, ‘wine and walking’ holidays have become increasingly popular as vineyards begin to open themselves for visitors.

The natural, mineral rich springs are also beginning to be used for spa treatments too, meaning that taking holiday accommodation in the Val d’Orcia is one of the most relaxing things you can do for a holiday!

Places to holiday in Val d’Orcia – Amiata, Italy

Monte Amiata is crossed by many footpaths, which steadily approach the summit via the grove laden lower slopes and the forested slopes of the upper reaches. These trails are fantastically looked after, offering stunning views, tough assents and refreshing breaks at some of the numerous natural springs which have kept Siena and Grosseto from going thirsty over the centuries. A huge amount of work has gone into winter provisions of winter sports on Monte Amiata too.

Weather in Val d’Orcia – Amiata, Italy

In the summer, average temperatures throughout the Val d’Orcia average over 30°C, which is incredibly warm for walking holidays, but perfect for relaxing tours of the region, but luckily for serious walkers, Val d’Orcia has an ‘Indian Summer’, with glorious, but slightly cooler, weather until October.

Travel to Val d’Orcia – Amiata, Italy

It is probably advisable to get a hire car from the airport to get the most out of your stay in Val d’Orcia holiday accommodation.

The rooms are spacious and very well appointed. Exterior spaces are inviting and provide great venues for conversation, food, and wine. The owners and overseers are very friendly, generous, and helpful. All in all, it was one of our best vacations sites ever.

From Marche through Umbria and into Tuscany Just driving through the countryside pleases me no end. Olives and grapes everywhere, quality produce. Regional specialities seem to be round every corner. This house offers the perfect spot for day trippers. The pizza oven was a bonus for me as I love cooking. I am looking forward to returning already.

It has been renovated with care and offer all what you need to spend lovely holidays. From the beautiful swimming pool to the outside terrace where you can relax and have dinner under the stars, everything is in place to offer you a genuine yet modern and comfortable experience. Camilla, the owner, was taking care of the quality of our stay like a friend would have done. The only think we wanted when leaving (and still want) is to come back. And we will!
