Description from manager

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Casale Montebendico is a gracious, recently restored property. The property is located on the border of Val d’Orcia, area renown for the “Crete Cenesi” and the “Maremma”, a land which extends from the splendid countryside to the Tyrrhenian sea. Situated only a few kilometres from Castel del Piano which has breathtaking views of the unforgettable hillsides. Casale Montebendico, allows guests to spend a relaxing vacation in the countryside without having to give up daily excursions to local gems such as Montalcino, hamlet well know for its world wide production of Brunello or to one of the beautiful beaches of the Tuscan Coast. "...Castel del Piano ... for the beauty of the place, for the comfort of the pleasant location, no doubt is the first among those who stand on that side ..." (Pope Pius II). A country located in a beautiful natural position, on the edge of a plateau from which it derives its name (Castrum Plani). Upstream surrounded by woods - chestnut at lower altitudes and beech forest - (one of the largest in Europe) to a thousand meters and downstream by olive groves, vineyards and fruit trees, equipped with all the services and sports and recreational facilities for an ideal holiday. At the center of a zone of pure spring waters that are at the same time a remarkable natural spectacle and the main water resources of the provinces of Grosseto and Siena. We are along the side of a mountain on a human scale reached in a quarter of an hour from 632 meters of the historic city center at 1300-1400 meters of Prati delle Macinaie and della Contessa (both in the municipality of Castel del Piano), up to 1732 meters of the summit of Monte Amiata, an ancient volcano, where you can admire the monumental "Cross" and the "Madonna of the Scouts".

About the area

Situated on the side of Monte Amiata, the medieval borgo of Castel del Piano is a health resort surrounded by chestnut woods. It is an ideal holiday spot in all seasons thanks to its natural beauty (trekking paths, ski pistes, nature reserves etc). We are in a geographical area characterized by different scenarios: from the mountain top to the valleys sloping gradually towards the Maremma, on one side, and to the Val d'Orcia, on the other, until you get to vast cultivations of olives and vines. The property is an excellent starting point for the spa towns of Saturnia, Bagno Vignoni, Bagni San Filippo, Chianciano Terme and San Casciano dei Bagni, known for their exclusive wellness centres and spas. You can also find history, art, culture, cuisine and typical local products enclosed in the villages of Pienza, Montalcino, Sovana, Scansano and, towards southern Tuscany, Montepulciano, Sarteano and Cetona. Siena and Grosseto are both about an hour's drive away, as is the Maremma Regional Park and the beaches of Marina di Grosseto, Talamone and Castiglione della Pescaia. Many discoveries found in the immediate vicinity relating to the Paleolithic, Neolithic and the Apennine civilization and the Etruscan and Roman periods, make ancient origins of Castel del Piano. Perhaps the Etruscans exploited the mines of cinnabar (mercury) of Mount Amiata and even the earth "tubular" located near the village. 890, Casale Plana (Castel del Piano) is among the possessions of the great Benedictine-Cistercian Abbey of Abbadia San Salvatore. The Palio of Castel del Piano is held every year on September 8 and is preceded by the "parade", which is the allegorical representation of historical events between 1330 and 1571.
