Discover the Magic of Tuscany
Found along the Via Francigena, the agriturismo is in the by the history of Tuscany: the pilgrims that traveled to Rome from Canterbury, the Etruscans that made their home in these hills and the many medieval towns that were caught in the rivalry between Florence and Siena. The tree-lined driveway recalls yesteryear and leads to the beautiful Romanesque church, la Pieve of SS. Ippolito and Cassiano, which dates back to the tenth century, and from which the agriturismo (La Pieve) gets its name.
For those looking to travel without a car, you can inquire about the shuttle service which is available. However, with so many nearby places to visit you may want to come with your car. San Gimignano and Siena, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites, promise much excitement with their towering landscape, shoppes and restaurants. The alabaster at Volterra makes excellent gift ideas as does the delicious wine and olive oil from the area of Colle Val d’Elsa. Not too far off are the exceptional museums and monuments at Florence or the sandy beaches of the Tuscan coast.
