Much More Than a Landscape

Widely renowned for its rich Brunello wine, the Val d'Orcia region of Tuscany was designed in Renaissance times to be one of the world's most aesthetically pleasing and untouched landscapes. Added to the UNESCO list of world Heritage Sites in 2004, the countryside is depicted by many famous painters and is featured in movies such as The English Patient and Under the Tuscan Sun. Our residences, just south of Siena, are surrounded by world-renowned vineyards and picturesque towns such as Montepulciano and Montalcino.

The Chianti region of Tuscany is famous for its ancient villages, mountainous terrain, and of course, Chianti Classico wine. Take some time to explore the local towns of Greve in Chianti, Siena, and Florence and revel in the classic Tuscan design and charm. A day trip is a must to the towns of Lucca, Pisa, and Cinque Terre.

Our native Destination Concierges can direct you to wineries, authentic trattoria, and ristorantes. Whether you want a private chef for true Tuscan cuisine, a guide to help you hunt for truffles, or a day learning about and driving Ferraris, our on-site staff has relationships with the experts.

Fresh Things To Do

Featured Activity


  • Our Favorite Wineries

    Ciacci piccolomini d'Aragona - Val d'Orcia. Early in the morning the Val d'Orcia region can get a little fog, but as it lifts you'll have the opportunity to view some of the loveliest countryside in Europe. We recommend you begin your wine tasting tour in Montalcino, a small hilltop town which is famous for its Brunello di Montalcino wine, made from the sangiovese grosso grapes grown in the surrounding area. The best way to explore Montalcino is on foot; the town is very small, and its high position offers stunning views over the olive groves, vineyards and farmhouses. The Ciacci estate, dating back to the 17th century, is our first choice in the area. Of the three wine cellars, the best wines are aged in the historic one.

    Monterinaldi - Greve in Chianti. This estate in Radda, Chianti offers a range of memorable experiences. Your concierge can arrange a private tour of the cellar while you learn their wine-making philosophy. You can also enjoy a private tasting of several wines with a snack, or a private tasting with a full lunch. This includes an appetizer, pasta course, second course, side dish and dessert. Each Chianti here reflects the unique harvest of its year, and the winery has won several well-deserved awards.

    Marchesi Antinori Chianti Classico Cellar - Val d'Elsa. Marchesi Antinori is one of the most famous houses of Italian wine. They've specialized in Chianti production since 1385, and their Tignanello helped begin the rise of "Super Tuscans." But this new state-of-the-art facility, designed by a top Italian architect, is the first time that visitors can experience their centuries-old process firsthand. The facility has been carefully managed by Antinori family members now in their 25th and 26th generations. You can learn about the winery's rich history, see their ancient art collection ... and of course, sample some of the world's finest wine.
