Farm holiday in the Val d'Orcia

where to Stay in the Val d'Orcia
Division of agricultural land in the Val d'Orcia in the past into separate farming units has favoured the diffusion of a large number of rural dwellings in the territory. Today, many of these buildings have been converted into fascinating and good value holiday homes and farmhouses of distinction and quality.
Below are some of our favourite choices ...

Agriturismo Passalacqua
A typical Val d'Orcia farmhouse with historical connections to the Via Francigena

In the heart of the Val d'Orcia, 'Passalacqua' was built in the medieval period on the old path of the Via Francigena adjacent to the eleventh stop - Abricula - noted in 990 AD by Sigeric, the archbishop of Canterbury, in the diary he kept on his way to Rome to visit Pope John XV.
On a hill near a stream, surrounded by meadows, wheat fields, poppies and flowering broom, this farmhouse offers complete tranquillity as well as a view over the valley. Bagno Vignoni, Chianciano, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, Radicofani and San Quirico d'Orcia are within easy reach. The farmhouse can accommodate 16 people in 2 apartments and a number of individual bedrooms.
The apartments cost €30 per head with the possibility of slight variations in price according to the way in people are accommodated. This tariff includes an abundant and traditional breakfast with seasonal products from the kitchen garden.
