ORGANIC AGRITURISMO – ACCOMMODATIONS FOR UP TO 20 GUESTS
Cretaiole is our family’s original agriturismo farmhouse that has helped independent travelers fall in love with the Val d’Orcia. Arranged in eight charming apartments–from cozy studio to spacious three bedrooms–Cretaiole offers you classic countryside living with the perfect balance of independence and community. This is where Luciano tends his vegetable garden, where we host our weekly “pici night” longtable dinner, and where you can stroll among our family vineyard and olive grove.
On land of Etruscan origin near Pienza, Cretaiole crowns a panoramic hilltop with beautiful vistas of iconic Tuscany. The ancient farmhouse’s exterior has been so beautifully preserved that you will seem to be transported to the 14th century when it was first built. Touch its stones, and your curiosity about its “story” cannot help but engage your imagination.
THE PERFECT COMBINATION OF BEAUTY AND COMFORT
Located just outside of Pienza, between Montepulciano and Montalcino in the heart of the magnificent Val d’Orcia (a UNESCO World Heritage site) and one of the most photographed landscapes in the world, Cretaiole is only a short drive to Italy’s most beautiful hill towns and cities. Siena, Florence, Cortona, Orvieto, Assisi, Volterra, and San Gimignano are easy day trips.
Each room has been decorated with beautiful antique Tuscan furnishings, along with the most comfortable beds, sumptuous linens and all the modern amenities needed to make your stay unforgettable.
