Additional Location Information

Orciatico is located in the heart of Tuscany in a very central position between historical and artistic towns and cities; Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Volterra, San Gimigniano, and is only 40 kms from the sea. There are wonderful views of the Tuscan countryside, and on a clear sunny day the Leaning Tower of Pisa can be seen. The village offers a very relaxing and peaceful stay.

Orciatico is an ancient medieval village. Its castle, which was founded by Longobards in the seventh century, was the outmost bulwark of the valley of the river Era. For this reason, Volterra, Pisa and Florence contended it continually.

Today the village has little more than 200 habitants, all of them friendly, and the castle now contains residential and holiday apartments. Orciatico is surrounded by vast woods. It may well be the starting point of full immersion in uncontaminated nature. There are natural phenomena (such as the emission of carbon dioxide at 'I Borboi') and you can view the remains of time gone by, such as the fortress of Pietracassia (a medieval castle, whose ruins dominate the valley of the torrent Fosce from the top of a wooded hill) or the windmills (the ruins which can be seen and recently have been restored) just a short walk from the village.
