"La Selvella" offers the marvellous opportunity of discovering the natural wonders of the Val d'Orcia on foot. With an experienced guide explore the unforgettable countryside around Montalcino, Pienza, San Quirico d'Orcia, Castiglione d'Orcia and Radicofani, the five areas which make up the Nature and Cultural Park of the Valley of the River Orcia.

Indulge your senses, through woods of beech and oak, olive groves and vineyards, stately avenues of cypresses, the stunning colours of spring, wild orchids, rape, sage, fragrant broom and autumn's molten browns and golds. Take the medieval highway the Via Francigena and follow in the footsteps of princes and paupers en route to the Eternal City. Delight in the sight of pheasant and falcons, hare and deer. Relax in the thermal waters of San Casciano dei Bagni, Bagni San Filippo or Bagno Vignoni, all enjoyed since Roman times by Emperors and Popes, Saint Catherine of Siena and Lorenzo the Magnificent for their therapeutic properties.

Visit one of the wineries of Montalcino and sample one of Italy's most valued wines, the Brunello of Montalcino. And of course tantalise your taste buds with one of the world's best known cuisines. Pecorino cheese, extra virgin olive oil dribbled over freshly toasted bread, home-made pasta served with truffles or a hare sauce, hearty soups, wild boar stew, porcini mushrooms, asparagus and artichokes and mouth-watering deserts all accompanied by the fine wines that this area has to offer...
