"This holiday, for me, was like a dream. A dream called Tuscany. For a long time I wanted to visit the Val d'Orcia. I had heard so much about this place and on the anniversary of my wedding my husband and I decided to spend two weeks in this land that gave us much more than we had expected.
For the accommodation I chose a wonderful holiday farmhouse situated on top of a hill a few kilometers from the beautiful Pienza, one of the UNESCO world heritage site of Italy. I visited many villages, all beautiful and rich in history.
I enjoyed the hot springs, I had lunch in great trattorias, tasted traditional dishes and even learned how to make the famous Tuscan homemade spaghetti called Pici. A holiday that will remain in my heart for a long time and that I recommend to anyone looking for relax and great food!” LorenaRead all the articles about Val d'Orcia on Briciole di Sapori (in Italian): Pici pasta with bacon, wild boar salami and dried tomatoes sauce recipe A holiday in agriturismo at Podere Spagliarda, Val d'Orcia Three generations of Tuscan cuisine Homemade pasta: pici, a recipe that has been handed down from generation to generation Croutons with Pecorino cheese and "lardo di cinta senese" salami Pienza and its ancient "botteghe"
