Ciao, I am Jan the owner of BelSentiero and your host.
I have been fortunate to have travelled, lived and worked in a number of countries. In my travels I discovered and fell in love with Tuscany. Wanting to move on from city big life and get to know “la dolce vita” I decided to move to the Val d’Orcia and establish what is today BelSentiero ("the beautiful path").
Creating BelSentiero has been the realisation of a dream. With lots of hard work and after having to navigate the legendary bureaucracy that Italy is infamous for, I was able to transform what once was an abandoned farmhouse into the beautiful property that BelSentiero is today. I feel extremely privileged to have been able to create a home in a place as beautiful as the Val d’Orcia (a UNESCO World Heritage area).
I would love for you to come and stay here and have the most unforgettable vacation. BelSentiero is not just about offering you a room for the night. Rather, BelSentiero is about experiences, a place of remarkable landscapes and beauty, tranquility and great food and wine.
While staying here there are numerous activities that you can engage in, from cooking lessons, farm visits and wine tasting, to walking, cycling and unlimited exploration and sight-seeing of the numerous medieval villages, towns and historic sites in the area.
BelSentiero is also a place where old friends reunite and new friends are made, a place where you can enjoy all the best that Italy and Tuscany have to offer, all while in the comfort of the luxury Tuscan villa that is BelSentiero. So for your next holiday I invite you to come and discover the hidden gems of Tuscany …
I'm looking forward to welcoming you at BelSentiero!
