Description

The space

The Tavern apartment, with double private access, is located on the lower floor of the farmhouse and consists of a double bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen, a large living room and a bathroom, and has an area of about 75 square meters. The apartment is located within the farm Bindozzino, lovingly run by a characteristic and friendly family of authentic farmers and nestled in a picturesque setting in the Natural Park of Val d'Orcia, rich in villages to explore and known for the presence of numerous thermal springs. The farmhouse is surrounded by approximately 25 hectares of cereals, grapes and olives from which is extracted a precious extra virgin olive oil that our guests can taste. The portion of property available to guests is separated by a short stretch of dirt road from the farm where the owners live. The likely origins of the farmhouse dates back to the sixteenth century and was built entirely using local materials. The recent restoration has returned the charm and grandeur of the past to the entire structure, respecting all the original features that make the Farm Bindozzino an authentic and unique place to spend time relaxing.

Interaction with guests

Farmhouse Bindozzino thanks to the numerous agreements signed with prestigious facilities in the area is able to offer a careful selection of spas and wellness centers.

The neighbourhood

Farmhouse Bindozzino is located in the area of Castiglione d'Orcia that marks the boundary between Val d’Orcia and the Monte Amiata forests. Once the property of the Aldobrandeschi family, it was contested in the 14th century between the Salimbeni family and Siena. In the village centre there’s a piazza dedicated to the painter and sculptor Lorenzo di Pietro known as Vecchietta. In the middle, there is a travertine well dating back to 1618 and the piazza is overlooked by the Town Hall. The churches of Santa Maria Maddalena and Santi Stefano e Degna are noteworthy. The centre is dominated by the remains of the Aldobrandeschi Fortress and the magnificent Rocca a Tentennano fortress.

Getting around

The natural richness of this area is mirrored in the vast selection of minerals: thermal springs have flowed from this territory for centuries, modifying the landscape and the wealth it offers. The thermal baths of Bagni Vignoni were used by the civilizations of yore that inhabited the area. The Etruscans used these healing waters, as did the Romans after them. A large rectangular bath is the enchanting frame for this small town: here the thermal waters have flowed for centuries, and the bath faces ancient buildings like the portico of Santa Caterina and the church of San Giovanni Battista. The healthy 'vapours' of this 'piazza of thermal waters', especially at night, offer a magical and mystical atmosphere. Not far off from this thermal spring town is San Quirico d'Orcia, an important trajectory along the Via Francigena, where visitors can see the Collegiata from the 12th century and the Horti Leonini, a magnificent green oasis and 15th century garden, situated under the walls of the ancient town. Along the slopes of Monte Amiata is a thermal spa that is some 500 meters above sea level. These sulphur-rich waters create enchanting calcium falls that emerge from the thick forest of the mountain. Called Bagni di San Filippo, these natural thermal springs and baths are a spectacular sight that offer health and relaxation. Nearby is the ancient town and birth place of Lorenzo di Pietro detto il Vecchietto, Castiglione d'Orcia. There is lots to visit here: the city hall building, the churches of Santa Maria Maddalena and the Santi Stefano e Degna, the remains of Rocca Aldobrandesca and the magnificent Rocca a Tentennano. Thanks to its volcanic origins, the entire area is rich in thermal springs. In just a few kilometres from here, visitors can travel to other famed healing waters, like Saturnia, San Casciano and Rapolano.

Other things to note

The family-run and the true passion of the owners for agricultural work will make your stay pleasant and in tune with the natural rhythms of the place. The area is full of hiking trails, trails for mountain bikers and endless spaces for relaxing rides.
