What to Do

The Crete Senesi hills are of a rare beauty, the seasons and the work of man creating ever-changing patterns. Here one can enjoy:

Food & Wine
Gently wooded valleys hide the precious secret of the Sienese white truffle, all the delights of fine wines of Brunello, Vino Nobile and Val d’Orcia Doc, the most precious and renowned extra virgin olive oil. Many other delicacies include the best pecorino cheeses, famous artichokes , hams and salamis, and other fresh produce, to be enjoyed directly at the producers’, or in one of the many small bars, restaurants and ‘trattorias’…
Art & Culture
Many historic sites and famous towns to visit. In particular, almost every little village hosts a small , interesting museum; special and intensive programmes of concerts and art exhibitions are held throughout the season and the whole year, drawing top performers from all over the world.Local village festivals and pageants are proudly organized to respect the traditions which the inhabitants cherish, following age old rhythms through the Seasons, the harvesting of olives, grain and grapes, or the precious truffle. These are also the occasion for a generous welcome to family members returning to their origins, but also to the passing tourists and especially towards those who come from elsewhere and choose to make their home in these unique surroundings.
