Our stay in the Palazzolo B&B was a mixed experience. La Foce was quite difficult to find. We were alone in the two-story house, which is set among gorgeous rolling hills in a perfectly manicured property. The Lavender room was spacious, comfortable, and rustic in...More

This was our 4th, magnificent week-long stay at La Foce and somehow we find many new things to treasure each time.

What a wonderful stay we had in this special place. I'd read Iris Origo's "War in Val D'Orcia" and always wanted to visit the land where she and her husband did so much for the people here during WWII. To stay on the property was...More

How wonderful to plan Christmas 2016 at La Foce! I was there with friends for the month of September 2015 (in the beautiful Gonzola restored farmhouse) and it was fabulous. The Val D'Orcia is so gorgeous ... and unspoiled by any commercial development - it's like driving through the pages of a Tuscan calendar. I'd suggest asking Benedetta Isidori, the rental manager at La Foce, your questions about the weather and garden tour. She will respond promptly. As for the drive from the Chiusi train station to La Foce, I'd suggest renting a car with an excellent GPS & you won't have a problem. Our GPS wasn't so good and we got a bit lost the first time we made that little trip! Be sure to plan a lunch or two at La Porta (in nearby Monticchiello) and dinner at Dopolavoro (on the La Foce estate). The Wednesday morning cooking classes with Anna & Sabriba were outstanding. The Abbey at Sant'Altimo was also one of our favorite day trips. Happy travels, Laurette
