Immersed in the silence of a pine grove, encircled by woodland and olive groves in Chianti, Villa Astreo is the ideal base to discover all the attractions of this part of Tuscany: from the bed & breakfast you can quickly reach many striking and interesting areas such as San Gimignano, Volterra, Pienza, la Val D'Orcia, Monteriggioni and Florence, which is just 40 minutes by car from the residence.
If you wish to stay in the vicinity, in just 10 minutes you are in Siena, a splendid medieval city full of tradition and artistic masterpieces of priceless beauty, such as the Duomo, Piazza del Campo and the town hall.
