Are you looking for an authentic Tuscan experience? Travelling is like opening a window onto the world: slow travel means having your own unique experience with people and places. All you need to know for your trip to Tuscany.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A TRIP TO TUSCANY?
Breathtaking beauty, art and culture, extraordinary nature, generous people, time-honoured traditions, and fantastic sunsets. There is no other place where you can experience all this at the same time.
Our first tip is “Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going to fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.” Eddie Cantor
But let’s proceed step by step, that’s all you need to live your unique experience in Tuscany.
THE FIRST THING: WHERE TO STAY?
Podere Salicotto is a charming Bed & Breakfast organic farm near Buonconvento, halfway between the hills of Siena, the Crete Senesi, and the Val d’Orcia. Set on a panoramic and strategic promontory, it is an ideal base for truly experiencing the beauty of Tuscany.
The location is very important, because it allows you to move easily among the beauties of this area, but that’s not all…
For us, hospitality is a philosophy of life, made up of looking after others, and simple gestures. Breathtaking views and a magical and relaxing atmosphere will be the setting for your dream experience. All our rooms have amazing views over the Tuscan hills.
At Podere Salicotto we don’t need pictures, you just have to open the window!
