A slow journey through the magical atmosphere of Tuscany, with romantic landscapes as a background for a wonderful holiday for two. If you are gourmets and want to enjoy relaxing days, then a holiday in the Crete Senesi is what you need.
Here are our tips for your holiday in the Crete Senesi, Podere Salicotto will be the ideal base to discover this fantastic territory.
Brunello Wine and White Truffle
We are one step away from Montalcino, a territory that is suitable for experiencing a sensory journey. The medieval village of Montalcino, with its narrow streets and little squares, will be the perfect setting for your romantic getaway. You will reach the fortress together and you will be amazed by the amazing view on the Val d’Orcia landscape. Here you can take a pleasant walk and enjoy the moment, perhaps sipping a fine glass of wine. Here you can toast to your holiday in Tuscany with an excellent glass of the famous Brunello di Montalcino.
From here, if you “follow your nose”… you can arrive down to San Giovanni d’Asso, home of the famous White Truffle of the Crete Senesi.
