The Val d'Orcia is a vast natural park, crossed by th river Orcia spreading to the south of Siena.

These sweet hills, with the majestic mount Amiata, whre olives groves, vineyardsm streams and typical clays combine in an atmosphere of magical harmony, now offer hospitality in the form of small, elegant relais hotel.

In the heart of the Senese countryside dwells an essential, et perfect landscape made of enchanting hillsides, oak woods, olive groves, vineyards, villages and historical monuments. Val d'Orcia is now protected as an artistic, natural and cultural park which comprises municipalities as Montalcino, Pienza and San Quirico d'Orcia. To the west the view takes in Monte Amiata, Italy 's highest extinct volcano, a large natural space: fir woods, chestnut woods, beechwoods, rare botanical and fauna species. Inside the Mount Amiata Faunal Park visitors can easily sight deers, roe deers and fallow deers, all of them wandering free inside the protected area.
The volcanic origins of Monte Amiata come to light at the thermal springs in Bagno Vignoni, near San Quirico d'Orcia, enjoyed since Roman times. The waters rise up from a depth of 1000 metres and reach the surface at 52° C° flowing in a magnificent pool measuring 49 metres which is the undeniable focus of the village.
