DESTINATIONSVilla Montegiovi is situated ibetween the villages of Montegiovi (GR) and Castelnuovo dell'Abate (SI), in a unique nature reserve of extraordinary beauty, within the area of Val'd'Orcia, one of the most exclusive landscape of Tuscany. Montalcino, known for the production of the "Brunello" wine, is characterized by pristine streets and stunning landscapes. Furthermore we also recommend a visit to the nearby abbey of Sant’Antimo, extraordinary example of Romanesque Lombard-French architecture built in onyx and alabaster. Val d'Orcia, recognized in 2004 as UNESCO World Heritage Site, is quintessential Tuscany, studded with delightful medieval villages, stone cottages, gentle hills, vineyards, olive groves, cypresses and grazing sheep. Among the hill towns of this area you will find: - Castiglione d'Orcia, a medieval village located on a steep rocky hill upon which stands the fortress of Tentennano; - Pienza, the town of Pius II, famous for the "pecorino cheese", and also the set of Franco Zeffirelli's 'Romeo and Juliet' movie; - San Quirico d'Orcia, the heart of the Val d'Orcia and one of the most remarkable examples of medieval town planning. - Montepulciano, thermal center with regal palaces, as well as the home of 'Vino Nobile'.Villa Montegiovi is also near to Mount Amiata, the biggest extinct volcan of Tuscany (1.738 m high).The main towns around Mount Amiata are lovely medieval villages such as: Abbadia San Salvatore, Piancastagnaio, Arcidosso, Castel del Piano, Vivo d’Orcia and Santa Fiora. Mount Amiata is an important tourist destination: during winter period, the main attractions are the ski slopes, while in summertime the towns around the mountain become renowned summer resort stations.Moreover, in this territory there are several protected nature reserves (like those of Mount Labbro, Mount Penna, Poggio all’Olmo...) as well as the Mount Amiata Faunal park where you can find animals such as wolf, deer, roe deer, mouflon and chamois.
