Il Casale di Piera Tuscan Vacation Villa

The farm 'Moro Fiacchi' that hosts "Il Casale di Piera" holiday house, is a typical Tuscan country mansion from the XVII century, with a spectacular pool overlooking the boundless valley, it sits in the very heart of the Val D'Orcia Artistic, Natural and Cultural Park, a short distance away from sites of particular historic and artistic interest (Pienza, Montalcino, S.Quirico d'Orcia, Montepulciano), from thermal baths (Bagni S. Filippo, Bagno Vignoni, Chianciano Terme, San Casciano dei Bagni, Rapolano Terme) and from Amiata Mountain, where one can stroll through chestnut and oak tree woods or follow the meandering of torrents that slope down ...Read more

Additional Location Information

Castiglione d'Orcia marks the boundary between the Val d'Orcia and the forests of Monte Amiata. The City of Siena and the Salimbeni fought bitterly for control of the ancient settlement of the Aldobrandeschi in the 1300s. The hamlet's center is dedicated to painter and sculpture Lorenzo di Pietro called 'Il Vecchietto'. In its central square, visitors will find a travertine well built in 1618 which faces the Palazzo Comunale.

Visitors won't want to miss a tour of the town's lovely churches including Santa Maria Maddalena and Santi Stefano and Degna. The remains of two noteworthy fortresses, Rocca Aldobrandesca and Rocca a Tentennano grace the hamlet's central area.

In the district of Rocca d'Orcia, one will find the churches of Pieve di San Simeone (XIII century), Compagnia di San Sebastiano and Madonna del Palazzo; the later has been desecrated and recently transformed into a residential building. Visitors won't be able to resist a stop at Vivo d'Orcia, a tourist hot-spot at the foot of the Amiata. Not far from the center, you'll find the 'Eremo del Vivo' a late Renaissance structure designed by Antonio da San Gallo, 'Il giovane.' A short walk from Vivo's aqueduct will take you to the little church of 'Ermicciolo' and the famous 'Seccatoi' area, which many expects consider the town's first ancient settlement.
Make sure to visit the historical center of Campiglia d'Orcia—a charming town which has maintained its Medieval characteristics. Near the hamlet, one can find the remains of the Campigliola tower.
