OLD TOWNS, CASTLES AND VILLAS
Once upon a time, in a remote valley, there was a castle…
The forts, towers and ancient churches perched on the hills are the oldest watchmen of the Valdicecina
Ancient defense systems and castles built on Etruscan and Roman remains, remote monasteries once used to find peace and isolation, thick forests and woods. That’s all you need for your itinerary throughout unspoiled Tuscany, from Micciano to Libbiano, Montegemoli, Serrazzano, Lustignano and San Dalmazio.
The “borghi” in the Valdicecina
The valley’s “borghi” are quiet and proud witnesses of the richness of this vibrant land
These small, old, traditional towns are oftentimes perched on top of hills, they were built in ancient times for their defense potential and used to be castles. They’re at the same time reminders of a military past and quaint shrines full of culture and art. A variety of traditional events, festivals and art exhibitions will allow you to experience the most authentic side of Tuscany and the people’s hospitality and generosity.
The “borghi” have something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing experience, good food, to discover history and nature, the outdoors or all of the above, they will welcome you at any time of the year.
Villas and farmhouses in the Valdicecina
The Tuscan countryside is a perfect example of a thousands-year-old harmonious relationship between nature and men
Blending together centuries-old experience in farming the land and the land’s prosperity, Tuscany is famous for its excellent products.
The villas and the farmhouses are wonderful pieces of architecture filling in what is a harmonizing puzzle of tradition and flavour. The natural landscape, with its grapevines and cypresses, the olive trees, orchards, farmed fields and grazing herds, also reflects the perfect balance between nature and man’s work the land has reached.
