Our travel tips | Countryside Bed & Breakfast • Siena

The Sienese countryside starts a few kilometres away from the centre of the city, and here, too, one has only to take one’s pick: to the north you will find “SAN GIMIGNANO” and “VOLTERRA” and the “CHIANTI” area, where the “Chianti” wine originates and gets its name, with its small rural villages, the wood-land covered hills, and the stretches of vineyards and olive tree groves; to the south there is the area of the of the clay hills, the “CRETE SENESI”, with their almost lunar landscapes of bare hills interrupted only by an occasional clump of cypress trees here and there or an isolated farmhouse. Beyond this, further south are the “VAL D’ARBIA” and “VALD’ORCIA” valleys; “MONTALCINO”, famous for the “Brunello” wine, “BAGNO VIGNONI” with its spa waters, “PIENZA”, well-known for the “Pecorino” cheese, and “MONTEPULCIANO”, another beautiful medieval town where the “BRAVĚO” race is held ( a medieval race where the contestants push wine barrels).
