WAKE UP WITH A SMILE
An isolated cypress tree on a hill, colors ranging from the dark tones of the recently plowed land to the golden tones of the mature crops, the silence of open space which seems unlimited. It is like this that the Orcia-valley every morning comes to our eyes, barren and cozy at the same time, beautiful to make you smile and, above all, untouched. This way our grandparents first found it, that way our parents maintained it, and that is how we want it to stay. For ourselves and for our guests.
Cheese and wine! Perfect treat after a long days ride
