Podere Santa Pia overlooking the Maremma hills

Casa Vacanze Podere Santa Pia is a beautiful stone farmhouse located in a strategic position, on a hill overlooking both the Val d'Orcia and the Valle d’Ombrone. A winding scenic road, just outside the village of Castiglioncello Bandini, is leading to this former cloister, hidden in a seduced valley.
Podere Santa Pia is surrounded by a backdrop of hills and macchia mediterranea: wild, untamed and completely natural vegetation, wonderful for walking and exploring on a variety of different terrain with fantastic views everywhere you turn. There is a glorious walk through the woodland to one of the most spectacular views in Tuscany overlooking the Valle d’ombrone, the Val d’Orcia and some vineyards south of Montalcino.
