LOCATION, LOCATION AND IT WAS GRAND

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at the vineyard worker’s cottage (villa) at the edge of Palazzone and loved it. The cottage is very nice and very private, but only a short walk into the village of Palazzone. The cottage overlooks a valley that is especially grand as the sun rises in the morning and makes the kitchen light up. There is an excellent grocery store in nearby Fabro, much larger than the one within Palazzonne.

Location, location is one of the major features of the Palazzone cottage. Palazzone is not far from the Autostrada if arriving by car and it is not far from Chiusi Scalo if you are picking up or dropping off a car and using the train for other locations. We made full use of the villa’s location by doing car tours daily and walking nearly every village we drove by, several days not getting back until late at night. This is how to enjoy

southern Tuscany. The cottage gave us easy access to the nearby ancient caves of Mount Cetona Archaeological - Naturalistic Park near Mount Cetona’s prehistory museum. The caves, used by Neanderthals, are just behind the Franciscan Monastery of Santa Maria of Belverde, built in the fourteenth century. Betty said she experienced her "David of Belverde" because while I was doing photos of the grand Monastery gardens and sculptures she was gingerly trying to get down a big step when one of the gardeners rushed over to help her down.

We also did a hike near Chiusi because we had a hike book, but where the hike took us on a long walk we could have driven to, we found out upon arrival when coming off a forest trail. We did it because it led to the "mausoleum of Lars Porsenna" of the 6th century BC, said by Pliny the Elder to be within a labyrinth out of which no one who ventures in can ever find an exit. We found it, and several entrances, but did not go in, thus left without the treasure said to be what we would have discovered, and lived with, within the labyrinth. The Chiusi area has a number of historic Etruscan tombs, most needing a guide to enter.

We did very much enjoy all the Etruscan tombs and Tufa items we saw, including those of Sovana and the Parco Archeologicao. Of course we did Oriveto and Civita and the rough road to Fighne. We walked these sights as much as we could, so each took a great deal of time. We did a day long circular drive through Val Di Orcia, walking as many of the villages as we could in the time we had. Grand, very grand. The historic villages were all a treat and the people very friendly.

Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a week in this magical villa in the middle of a vineyard. The villa is very comfortable and well looked after. Short walk to coffee, groceries, and pizza. We got a lot of useful information before we left and once we arrived. Short drives to many hospitable Tuscan towns. Highly recommended.
