At least twice a year I cannot resist the temptation to have a real relaxing break, and I always go for Valdorcia, in the Province of Siena, for a brief holiday. Here I’m sure to find peaceful rest and regain physical and mental strength. One of the many hotels I’ve stayed in is a charming amazing property, unique in itself for the stunning panoramic location and the refined and luxurious accommodation.

Hotel San Simeone boasts an enviable position on top of Rocca d’Orcia hill, dominating the view all over the Orcia Valley. Having breakfast on the terrace with that incredible vast panorama, is the best way to start the day, as if in meditation.

A place of rare beauty located very near Castiglion d’Orcia, Montalcino, Pienza, Bagno Vignoni, Montepulciano, Radicofani, Chianciano Terme, and the many thermal baths and spas.

The hotel offers bed and breakfast accommodation, so I really suggest you to dine at the wonderful restaurant ” La Cisterna nel Borgo, just down the hotel, in the ancient medieval square of the borgo, serving extraordinary enogastronomic specialities and top wines with a very romantic atmosphere.

The hotel, the views, the food, the sun… will impress upon your memory; an unforgettable experience 🙂
