A short drive away…
- Seggiano (2.6 km) – the medieval town of Seggiano is delightful with rosemary and irises peeking out from ancient stone walls and quaint flower-adorned cottages lining the streets. The four churches are worth a visit and there is also an olive oil museum to explore. There is a supermarket, bank, pharmacy, post office, high-quality restaurants and bars all in town.
- Castel del Piano (9 km) is a mountain village with a tiny medieval town tucked away at its centre where there are streets narrow enough to shake hands across. Boasting robust authentic mountain food, try the veal with truffles. This is a foodie’s paradise with four out of every five shops greengrocers', and dishes built around the freshest-of-fresh ingredients including wild fungi, figs and peaches.
- Arcidosso (11.9 km) – Due to its calorie-density and versatility the humble chestnut was a staple food for the people in the cool mountain villages and every Autumn Arcidosso celebrates the nut by hosting a fabulous Chestnut Festival with food stands in the old town.
