So, are you ready for your summer holiday in Tuscany?
We are Jan and Renzo, the owners and your hosts at BelSentiero. BelSentiero is a beautiful, restored Tuscan farmhouse that we have converted into our Bed and Breakfast. As gay owners we are welcoming of our LGBT family and would love to host you here!
We are located in the Val d’Orcia in southern Tuscany, half-way between Rome and Florence. The Val d’Orcia, which was declared a World Heritage area by UNESCO in 2004, is truly spectacular. It is the quintessential Tuscany of the postcards, with landscapes of rolling green hills that turn to gold in summer, vineyards, olive groves, medieval hill-towns and fortresses. All of this against the backdrop of Monte Amiata, an extinct volcano.
The region is also famous for its food and wine. The valley is straddled by the Brunello in the west and Montepulciano in the east, two of Italy’s most famous wine regions. And then there is the food, with dishes that are typically fresh and seasonal. This includes white truffles, mushrooms, chestnuts, zucchini and aubergines. Plus there is the pecorino di Pienza sheep’s cheese for which the area is famous. This is in addition to the prosciutto (ham) and salumi, including that made from Cinta Senese, a domestic pig raised in the forests and fed acorns and chestnuts.
We have all the right contacts and know all the best restaurants, wineries and places to visit in the Val d’Orcia. We also speak both English and Italian. So when staying with us we can assist you to have the best possible experience and help you to discover the hidden gems of Tuscany that the ordinary tourist would never find on their own!
So come and have the experience of a lifetime. Be it tasting some of the world’s best wines, having a spa day in the thermal pools of Bagno Vignoni, visiting enchanting medieval villages, or just lounging on our veranda admiring the views with an Aperol Spritz in hand. Come and stay with us at BelSentiero your luxurious home from home in the Val d’Orcia together with us.
