Talking about Tuscany, it is difficult to choose where to start as this region has a historic, artistic and literary heritage that is unique in the world with more than 2000 years of history. From the Etruscans to the splendours of the Renaissance, countless towns and villages have been preserved and they are all worth visiting, from Monteriggioni to Pitigliano.

One of the most amazing aspects of this region is the variety of landscapes and the beauty of its unspoilt nature.
Mount Amiata and Abetone, the Lunigiana area, the Apuan Alps and the Garfagnana valley are ideal starting places for those who love trekking and winter sports.
Slow tourism, food and wine tastings in Val D’Orcia, Lucchesia and on the rolling hills of Siena and Chianti.
And if you like swimming, you can dive in the Tyrrhenian Sea with 500 km of coasts and 20 Blue Flag resorts, a great example of excellence and sustainable tourism.

All places with Nature Hospitality in Tuscany

Pomarance

Pomarance is a village in Alta Val di Cecina which goes as far back as 1000 AD and still retains its ancient structure of a medieval town.

Read all
In the surrounding areas, there are rural churches, remains of fortresses and the majestic Castle Sillana, buildings of historical value surrounded by landscapes of rare beauty. We strongly recommend two tours: The Nature Reserves of Berignone and Monterufoli with many forests, streams and remains of old mines and the grand tour of geothermal energy, a 140 km route in the area known as “Devil’s Valley” due to numerous natural geysers and a high level of geothermal activity. The land has been traditionally used for farming but also for the breeding of some native species such as the lamb of Pomarance and the small horse of Monterufolino. Close

Casole

A romantic village on the characteristic hills of Valdelsa, Casole d’Elsa is an ancient Etruscan settlement, a hamlet located on the back of a hill that offers visitors a stunning panoramic view of the Sienese countryside.

Read all

In the 11th and 12th centuries, it was a feud of the Bishops of Volterra and in 1260 came under the rule of the Sienese. Being a place of strategic interest, to defend it from outside attacks, it was subsequently necessary to erect new fortifications, including two round towers that still exist today, taking on the features of a village surrounded by its walls.

The medieval village has also been awarded the Touring Club’s Orange Flag.

The first thing to visit in Casole d’Elsa is the city walls, where a contemporary soul is hidden, consisting of the Arte Viva art gallery. Strongly desired by the artist Giuseppe Ciani, it represents a magnificent collection of drawings and paintings by children from all over the province.

The Collegiate Church of Santa Maria Assunta, built in the 12th century in the Romanesque-Gothic style, stands out among the fine buildings in the historic centre.

Next to the Collegiate Church is the Rectory, today home to the Archaeological Museum of the Collegiate Church, where one can discover the history of the town and the surrounding area with archaeological finds from the Etruscan period and paintings and sculptures from the Sienese school from the 14th to the 16th century.

In the best Sienese tradition, the Palio di Sant’Isidro is also run here, an unmissable event every summer, during which a horse race is held that awards victory to one of the six participating contrade, with side events throughout the village and a craft market.

Cerreto Guidi

A hidden gem in the beautiful Tuscan countryside, Cerreto Guidi offers an authentic experience for visitors seeking tranquillity and historical beauty

Read all

Set amidst rolling hills and vineyards, this picturesque town is famous for its imposing Medicean Castle, an icon of the Italian Renaissance that dominates the horizon. 

The village, steeped in mystery, intrigue and Medici history, also offers culinary experiences in traditional restaurants, folklore festivals and typical shops that promote the use of local ingredients and responsible farming practices.

Its historic centre is a charming maze of cobbled streets and quiet squares that invite you to explore the city on foot or by bicycle. 

Lastly, a must-see is the MuMeLoc, a museum of memory that promotes and preserves the local cultural heritage. And to immerse yourself even more in the soul of the small Tuscan village, organise your visit during the events that involve the entire town of Cerreto Guidi, such as the Infiorata del Corpus Domini, La Notte di Isabella or the Palio del Cerro.

San Quirico d'Orcia

In the picturesque Val d’Orcia, in the province of Siena, lies San Quirico d’Orcia, an enchanting village renowned for its scenic beauty, medieval charm and historic architecture. 

Read all

With its narrow cobbled streets and cosy squares, walking through the streets of the centre is a unique experience, a return to the past. Ancient churches, historic palazzi and artisan shops define the heart of San Quirico d’Orcia where, even today, you can still breathe in an authentic, old-world atmosphere. And the Leonini Gardens, dating back to the Renaissance period and offering not only a relaxing green oasis but also a breathtaking view of the surrounding countryside, are a must-see. 

A village with a lively soul, local life takes place in the Piazza della Libertà: here, among the cafés and restaurants, you can savour the local cuisine and enjoy a moment of relaxation while observing the everyday life of the small town. 

Finally, strategically located, San Quirico d’Orcia is an excellent starting point for exploring other renowned Tuscan localities, such as Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano.
