The Val d’Orcia is exemplary in all respects, reflecting the highest standards of environmental sustainability, tourist accessibility, aesthetical pleasantness and magic atmospheres, which make this place worth a cooking class in a Tuscan farm.

The name derives form the Orcia creek that runs across the valleys for 35 miles before flowing into the second largest river in Tuscany, the Ombrone.
