Agriturismo Le PianoreSet in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, Le Pianore villa and organic wine farm is cradled between the medieval hilltop towns of Montelaterone and Monticello Amiata. Surrounded by woodlands, vineyards, olive groves and mountain streams, it is a private haven ideally suited to creative exploration and spiritual practice: with its spectacular views and untouched landscapes, it imparts a real sense of freedom.
Our estate is an IMC certified organic farmstead and with more than 80% of our energy coming from renewable sources (solar panels and sustainably managed wood), we are proudly on our way to reaching our goal of total energy self-sufficiency. Furthermore, all water destined for agricultural use, including irrigation of the vegetable gardens, comes directly from the spring that bubbles up behind Maladina.
Agriturismo Le Pianore, with its beautifully restored villas and studio spaces, is the perfect base from which to explore the surrounding countryside; from the slopes of the Monte Amiata down to the Maremma coast. Slow down and indulge the senses: visit world-renowned vineyards, dip into ancient Roman thermal baths, explore Etruscan tombs and stroll through Renaissance villages. Or simply relax and make yourself at home in a profoundly peaceful setting. See more events in this venue
