La Pieve, charming farmhouse located on the hills of Val d'Elsa, between Volterra and San Gimignano, along the Via Francigena, in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, with its luxuriant nature and rich history.
You reach it through a lovely and evocative tree-lined road, which frames the findings of the ancient Etruscan civilization and the beautiful Romanesque church, la Pieve of SS. Ippolito and Cassiano, which dates back to the tenth century, and from which it gets its name.
The infinity pool, surrounded by the silence of the great olive grove, is equipped with deckchairs, sun loungers and shaded intimate corners.
It is lit up at night and gives a magic charm to the landscape, a spell of quietness and peacefulness.
A solarium equipped with private entrance is available to guests, who can relax, have a drink and enjoy a splendid view on the Siena hills and olive groves.
The charming farmhouse La Pieve also has a park, perfect for strolling and enjoying quietness on the benches placed along the beaten paths.
Etruscan tracks, dens of wild animals, wild herbs, create an enchanted atmosphere and uncontaminated contact with nature.
