How many wonderful shots have you already seen of the Vald’Orcia on Instagram? We loved her even before knowing her, photos were enough to make us dream of those landscapes that seemed almost painted.
Romantic, genuine, boundless like all the landscapes of beautiful Tuscany, the Val d’Orcia, together with the entire Sienese countryside, is a perfect destination for couples.
So, following our crazy summer itinerary to discover valleys and expanses of sunflower, we have compiled 5 things to do in Val d’Orcia as a couple:
Val d’orcia and farmhouses
choose a farm to stay in Val d’Orcia and to enjoy the quiet, find contact with nature and enjoy genuine products, from wine to food.
The farmhouses in the area are far from the rustic environment of the common imagination; we talk about easy chic places, very romantic and equipped with every comfort, from the spa to the swimming pool in the room
Organize a picnic in the sunflower fields
treat yourself to the carefree and light experience of a picnic from another time such as our picnic at theI Pagliai farmhouse on board the fabulous fiat 500 or choose a unique Picnic experience on the Picnic Chic portal.
Discover the natural spas
It is impossible not to discover the two famous natural baths of Val D’orcia such as Baths San Filippo and Bath Vignoni.
A day among nature, natural pools and all the benefits that derive from it
Enjoy the sunset from the chapel of the Madonna di Vitaleta
Near San Quirico d’Orcia, the small chapel surrounded by nothing offers one of the most beautiful sunsets in the valley. At sunset the colors are warm and intense, ideal for your photos … bring with us a blanket to sit on, two glasses and a bottle of wine. Enjoy the silence and toast to the Italian beauty and you.
Food and wine tastings
American tourists are crazy and you too will like to participate in a tasting of local wines and products. We consider it a wonderful way to “savor” the exclusivity of the Val D’Orcia and to get in touch with the producers of the area that you will find in hand, passionate and in love with their land. Excellent opportunity to taste the excellence of the area, to toast and also enjoy beautiful landscapes.
