Introducing Il Mandorlo

Situated in a protected UNESCO World Heritage area Mandorlo is only 10 minutes to Pienza, 30 minutes to Montalcino or Montalpulciano, 40 minutes to Siena, and about 1½ hours to Florence.  Rome is a 2½ hour drive.

In any season, Mandorlo’s location is perfect for cultural touring of the numerous small and medium-sized hill towns, hiking along an extensive network of rural trails between villages, biking the beautiful yet challenging rolling hills, foraging for special ingredients to make your dinner in the Mandorlo’s fantastic kitchen, tasting world class wines, or just enjoying being away from it all.

In addition to overlooking the Val D’Orcia and Monte Amiata (which is a ski resort in the winter!), the house looks onto the famous hill towns of Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, Bagno Vignoni, and Rocca d’Orcia.  Closer still is the quaint village of Lucignano d’Asso and the ancient settlement of Cosona, which houses the castle in which the Marquesa Ruspoli Forteguerri still lives.
