KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Villa Bellaria is situated near the beautiful village of Lucignano which is just 2km away. The village is a well preserved example of medieval urban planning for its use of elliptic rings to structure its architectural layout. The village wraps around a castle that was rebuilt in the 15th century and has a good selection of speciality shops, cafes and restaurants.
Just 9km away is the historical town of Monte San Savino, situated on a low hill in the Valdichiana. The Valdichiana Chiana Valley south of Arezzo is one of the largest valley's in the Apennines. The Etruscans were the first civilisation to drain its marshlands transforming it into their bread-basket. Surrounded by hills and ancient hidden towns, the Valdichiana is home to flourishing farms and the prized Chianina cattle, who are believed to be one of the oldest breeds in the world. The town is also the birth place to high Renaissance Italian sculptor Andrea Sansovino, one of his early altarpieces still remains in the Church Of Santa Chiara in Monte San Savino. The town has all of the important local amenities such as a petrol station, bank, postal office, shops, cafes and some restaurants. The picturesque town is also home to a diverse collection of medieval and Renaissance palaces.
Chiefly known for its good local 'Vino Nobile' wines, Montepulciano, just 25km from the villa, lies to the southeast of Siena, on the summit of one of the hills that separates the Valdichiana from the Val d'Orcia. It is built along a narrow limestone ridge at 605m above sea level. The town is encircled by walls and fortifications designed by Antonio da Sangallo the Elder in 1511 for Cosimo I, and inside the walls the streets are crammed with Renaissance-style palazzi, churches, restaurants, shops and a fabulous atmosphere. Of Etruscan origin, Montepulciano later became a Roman winter encampment.
