OUR TUSCANY FARMHOUSE IN MONTEPULCIANO
Your home base to explore the heart of Tuscany in Italy!
Our farmhouse La Bruciata is located 2 km from Montepulciano (known as “The Pearl of the 16th Century”) in the province of Siena, in the direction of Pienza.
It is situated in a strategic and central position to visit the heart of Tuscany and takes its name from the farm located on the edge of the “Poliziano” territory, which faces the gentle and spectacular hills of the Val d’Orcia. The Artistic Natural and Cultural Park of the Val d’Orcia is a World Heritage Site where the dominant element of the landscape is a clay soil which lies bare forming the famous “lunar landscape” (Crete Senesi).
Nearby there are many picturesque villages rich in beautiful and artistic history: Monticchiello (which can be reached by foot along a path through the woods), Pienza, Montefollonico, Montalcino, Bagno Vignoni, San Quirico d’Orcia, Bagni San Filippo, Cortona. Also within an easy drive you can reach famous Italian cities such as Siena, Perugia, Arezzo, Firenze, Pisa, Orvieto, San Gimignano, Volterra, , and in less than two hours the magnificence of Roma.

Pool A green paradise
Our love of the earth and this countryside prompted us to create for our guests, a green paradise with a large garden of native flowers and plants, a place where you can relax reading a good book in a hammock near the old oak, or sip a glass of our local sangiovese wines on the travertine terraces while enjoying the delightful view of the landscape in front of you, or simply unwind in the shade of a flower-covered gazebo with a view of the magnificent valley.
