An experience to relish

Chilling and picnicking in Val d’Orcia

As summer approaches, few things are more tantalising than the prospect of a hearty picnic out in nature. A delectable experience that only requires a few important ingredients: good food, sunny weather and a quiet little spot – preferably with a spectacular view. 
So, if a road trip through a picturesque landscape combined with an al fresco culinary experience is what you have in mind for your next holiday, Tuscany is your perfect destination.
There aren’t many places on Earth that offer such a bountiful range of options and dreamy views as the Tuscan Val d’Orcia valley. Attractions include the Madonna di Vitaleta chapel – one of the most popular snapshots in the area – and Vignoni Alto, a tiny hamlet commanding a breath-taking view. If you would like to enjoy your picnic in a special power place, we recommend the Sant’Antimo abbey with its idyllic location. Those who are looking to experience Tuscany from its most fairytale-like side are in for a real treat driving through the Lucciola Bella nature reserve. If an ancient, gnarled oak tree to sit under is all you need, in the vicinity of our resort you will find Quercia delle Checche. Sitting in the shade of its lush green crown is a perfect way to relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
These are just a few examples, of course… the list of attractions and possibilities is practically endless, and we will be happy to provide more tips, information and maps here at the resort.
Now that you have chosen your perfect location, what you need is the right food to pamper the palate. This is where our picnic baskets filled with Tuscan specialities come into play. Think focaccine stuffed with a base of dry cured ham, Pecorino cheese or vegetables with added artichokes, dried tomatoes and olives. Rice or pasta salads, Caprese skewers, grilled vegetables, salami or cheese – all premium quality, of course. As for dessert, expect fresh fruit salads or vanilla muffins filled with a heart of raspberry. To accompany all this, a good bottle of Aetos Sparkling or Orcia Rosso, as well as delicious juices and other drinks.
Just tell us what you would like, and we will fill your picnic basket with regional delicacies selected according to your preferences.

Our Picnic & Relax package is designed to enhance your experiences out in the Tuscan countryside. You are welcome to hire our electric Fiat 500 Cabrio for the occasion – just bring your picnic basket, turn on the ignition and enjoy your day out!
