Walking tour to discover a little gem: Monticchiello
It is very frequent to receive from my guest the same question:
where can I go if I want to walk?
No more easier answer for me. I love walk in the country side and the villa is just on a path for walking tour that brings to a still authentic and not turistic village with a glorious view and a fantastic authentic restaurant.
Really as we exit from our gate we are on the path that brings to Monticchiello. Distance is 6 km in a gravel road in the middle of field and rolling hills, no sign but no way to get lost . No car, only for people that walk, it is just magic when you walk to ear the soud of your steps because this will be the only noise you will hear.
In one hour and 10 minutes you will arrive to Monticchiello, a small center in the heart of the Orcia valley whose beauty derives from its geographical position and the hamonious integration of its medieval architecture.
You can walk in this little village, with 2 little shops a lovely Church and on the top of the hill a tower.
But after a lot of phisical exercize I always raccomend a rest and lunch on the little paronamic terrace of the restaurant LA porta wich is know in the worl for its quality and genuine food.
I taxi will drive you back to the villa, if you are to tired.
