Farmhouse La Grencaia is situated on the northern bound of the Natural and Artistic Park of the Val d'Orcia close to Castelluccio di Pienza (also named Castelluccio della Foce as it belongs to that large estate). The territory is divided into three different municipalities: Pienza, Montepulciano and Chianciano Terme.
Castelluccio is an ancient fortified castle which dominates all the valley and it was built in the medieval times to control the access to the valley from the northern side. The farmhouse has been completely restored in 2009, according to the principles of bio-architecture; employing building materials such as bricks, slaked lime, wood; walls have been insulated by using cork; the heating system works with bio-masses and solar cells provide hot water. Our hosts will thus enjoy a stay in a healthy structure which takes care for the environment granting at the same time all the comforts required.
The large open areas will allow a holiday in contact with nature and the opportunity of directly following the seasonal works.
