The Holiday Home Fonte del Castagno’s central location in the heart of the Terre di Siena and Val di Chiana allows you to discover many wonderful large towns and small villages in any direction you choose.
Sinalunga is the area of origin of the Chianina, the largest and one of the oldest cattle breeds in the world. You can eat the famous bistecca alla fiorentina, produced from its meat, in many restaurants in this area. The hilltop towns of Montepulciano and Montalcino,  renowned for their wines such as Nobile and Brunello, are nearby. Visit Pienza, taste the pecorino cheese and tour the surrounding Val d’Orcia – a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Also within the immediate vicinity you will find the timeless landscape of the Crete Senesi, the white truffles of San Giovanni d’Asso and many other little villages where the best olive oil of Tuscany is produced. Another area close by is Chianti, which is famous for the wine.
Siena,  home of the Palio,  the exciting horse race in the Campo, is famous all over the world. This beautiful city as well as Cortona, Lake Trasimeno and Arezzo are all less than a 30 minutes’ drive, and you can reach Florence, Perugia, San Gimignano and Assisi in less than one hour. Rome is only one hour and a half away. It is also possible to reach all of these places by train and by bus from the station in Sinalunga.
The Holiday Home ‘Fonte del Castagno’ is very close to the famous thermal baths of Tuscany: Rapolano Terme, Montepulciano, Chianciano Terme, Bagno Vignoni, Bagni di San Filippo and San Casciano dei Bagni. We have an agreement with some of these spas, where you can take advantage of special discounts on the entrance to the hot pools and on beauty treatments.
For mountain-lovers Monte Amiata is one hour’s drive away. There you can ski in winter or take lovely walks in the other seasons of the year, and also eat some very tasty chestnuts!
