Val d'Orcia has become a magnet among travelers experienced in Tuscany and looking for a setting which is neither remote nor amidst the hyper activity of tourists. For the same reasons, the Val d'Orcia has attracted those who enjoy the considerable challenge of resuscitating a ruin and turning it into a country home. Everyone is drawn to the spectacular open countryside, the proximity to hill-towns and cities of interest, the simple goodness of the people. Lucky for us, these thoroughly modern outposts make ideal vacation spots. The location of Podere I Troscioni could not be better; a short drive on a dirt road, 5 minutes door-to-door to the village of Sarteano. In 10 minutes you are in Chiusi for the excellent Etruscan museum or a just-over-an-hour train to either Rome or Florence. Take the mountain road to San, or head off for Montepulciano, Pienza and San Quirico.
