Le Crete senesi



When you say Tuscany, in the vast majority of cases, the imagination flies right away to the magical and picturesque landscapes consisting of an isolated farmhouse, perched on a hill, whose driveway is lined with cypress trees. Our area is often described as a “lunar landscape” due to some areas with “biancane” like the one that appears in the picture. Actually the Crete Senesi are much more, because it has always been inhabited by a people whose origins date back to the hard-working Etruscans, which is still a trace in some cities and in the Civic Museum of Asciano.

For those who come here only for a short vacation or live there permanently, the Crete offer many opportunities: cultural ones, beautiful landscapes, gastronomic and commercial ones.
