Territory

The La Vinca B&B is only 1 km from the motorway exit Chiusi-Chianciano Terme, its strategic position permits to reach quickly art cities like Florence, Siena, Perugia, Assisi, Cortona, Arezzo, and Rome.

We are lucky to live in a territory between Tuscany and Umbria that is rich inart, culture, landscape, and thermal spas.   Chiusi, Orvieto, Città della Pieve, Lago Trasimeno, Montepulciano, Pienza, Monticchiello, Monte Amiata, Sarteano, San Casciano dei Bagni, are places just minutes away that will surprise you. In these locations is possible to visit museums, Etruscan necropolis, religious itineraries, beautiful historic city centers and mediaeval boroughs or, more simply, attend historical re-enactments, participate in festivals and indulge in the local cuisine.

The area is also well known for its wines (Brunello di Montalcino, Nobile di Montepulciano, Chianti, Bianco di Orvieto, Grechetto dell’Umbria) DOP olive oil and cheeses.

For nature lovers we like to point out the lakes in Chiusi and Montepulciano where on a boat trip will be able to see the marsh harrier, coots, white herons and dozens of other aquatic species in the midst of dense marsh vegetation. Strategic lookout points make it a perfect place to take wildlife photos.

We also have spa waters for the care of the body, a place where you can regenerate yourself from a hectic lifestyle. There are many rich thermal spas to choose from: Chianciano Terme, San Casciano dei Bagni, Terme di S. Albino, Rapolano, and Bagno Vignoni just to mention a few.

Active and sport people can take advantage of the cycle paths that cross the Valdichiana (trail reclamation) and the Val d’Orcia (unique landscape acknowledged by UNESCO World Heritage).

Just 200 m. from La Vinca there is a riding school where horses can be hired and where it is possible to attend riding lessons. Qualified and expert personnel ensurehorse therapyroutes.
