Glimpses of Paradise amidst aromatic plants, dry-stone walls, lavender, terracotta jars, pyracantha and rosemary and solitary cypresses guarding the vast spaces of the Val d’Orcia.

This is the Val d’Orcia, this is Castelvecchio, now with two swimming pools for guests, gems in a setting of culture and nature, one hidden among the rooftops and reserved for the guests of the Canonica and the Villa, the other on the edge of a large garden, at the foot of the church, overlooking a breath-taking view with Pienza, the ideal city, in the background on the hilltops.
