Nature lovers may ride with Mountain Bikes (rentable on request) on hill roads and take a stroll in the natural environment of the Cultural and Natural Park of Val d’Orcia, UNESCO humanity patrimony, where our Farm is located. Otherwise, they may rediscover the beauty of ancient towns along the Via Francigena up to slopes of Mount Amiata.
