Pienza - Val d'Orcia - Siena - Tuscany

Come for a week’s visit (Saturday to Saturday) during the month of August 2014 (beginning with the week of 9 August), at any of our properties (Cretaiole, Le Casine di Castello, and Casa Moricciani) and enjoy our “Dolce Vita Stay” at no extra charge! This is a value worth Euro 100,00 per person!

Don’t be fooled by those who say “Italy closes down in August”! This is only a myth and, in fact, it is one our favorite months of the whole year!

Come to our area of Tuscany—the Val d’Orcia—and you will find everything open, Italians everywhere, long days, fewer tourists, summer festivals, gorgeous evenings with outside dining, great summer temperatures, music, and maybe best of all: homegrown tomatoes and vegetables from our bountiful, organic garden!!!!

(The garden will be overflowing with Luciano’s homegrown tomatoes, eggplant, green peppers, lettuce, arugula (rocket), basil, many fresh kitchen herbs, onions, watermelon and honey melon, and cucumber.)

The “DOLCE VITA” (the Sweet Life) stay includes the following activities with our family and our other guests:

  • Upon arrival you will find a welcome basket, full of our family’s farm products (wine, cheese, meats, extra virgin olive oil, fresh farm eggs)
  • Tour of our family’s working farm in Pienza with product tasting (usually on Sunday)
  • An introduction to Tuscany: "Buongiorno Toscana" - Learn with Carlotta and Luciano about Tuscan culture, language, traditions, food and wine
  • A tour of the ancient hermitage located on our family’s property in Pienza
  • Olive oil tasting lesson with Carlo, professional olive oil taster for the Province of Siena
  • A handmade pasta class and communal Tuscan dinner with our family and guests (usually on Thursday evening)
  • Enhance your vacation by joining our family in activities that are typical for our culture and full of our traditions, we offer to you at no extra charge during August! Don't miss the chance!
