Jan and Renzo were the prefect hosts. Clean rooms, lovely breakfast with a stunning view. Excellently maintained property. The nearby villages are something to explore, a bit of the beaten track, and that is what makes it so special! We were also treated to a lovely Braai! mmmmmmm-lekker! Thank you Jan and Renzo!

What a wonderful property and gracious host! We spent several days exploring Tuscany on our own and BelSentiero was our home base. The rooms were spacious, modern and clean. Continental breakfast was served every morning in the dining room with the other guests. Jan was full of awesome suggestions for places to visit and dine. He couldn't do enough to make sure our stay was perfect. The views from the veranda are spectacular! In addition to the beautiful countryside, we also saw a wild boar roaming in the fields. I would definitely stop here on another visit if I find myself in the Val d'Orcia region again.

Beautiful, renovated Tuscan villa a short drive away from some fantastic vineyards and towns. Jan & Renzo were very friendly and helpful hosts plus very knowledgable of the local area and the best experiences and offerings. Newly renovated inside and out with extremely comfortable beds and quality furnishings throughout, we are already planning a return with the promise of a jacuzzi and pool coming in the next few seasons (Jan has also promised me a proper South African braai (BBQ) which I can't wait for!). We'll definitely be back again!

Room Tip: We had a garden view which was superb and will only be better when the jacuzzi and the pool arrive!

During our stay with Jan in his beautiful house, very aesthetically furnished and situated with a wonderful view to the garden we felt so well treated. We were doing the via Francigena and Jan took care of our need for being picked up and for the transport to the nearest railway station when leaving. The meals during our stay were excellent prepared by Renzo the cook of the house - very tasty Italian food made by vegetables from the garden or lokal producers. The cook also showed consideration in choosing menues to our preference (love vegetables/less meat). Couldn't be better. Jan also was generous with sharing his great knowledge of Italy/Tuscany which made us a great deal wiser of the country we were visiting.

Thank you for your review Jens. It was great meeting you and Charlotte and I am glad that we were able to provide you with a place to relax following all the walking you had been doing in taking the Francigena! I hope that we will see you again when you are next in Italy and if you stay longer then maybe we can show you more of the area.

We went for their Tuscanny Food and Wine Experience and I recommend it to anyone who loves food,enjoys wine and wants to find out all about the area of Val d'Orcia. We went to several wineries and toured the towns where we had lunch at great restaurants. One day we went to a farm where a young couple makes pecorino cheese and the woman is also a forager for greens like you've probably never experienced before. We spent a day exploring a unique town where a special type of Olive oil is made..special because it's the only place where this type of Olives are grown. We had an olive oil tasting where we learned how to tell good olive oil from the mediocre oil we usually get at a super market. There is also an Olive Oil museum which shows how Olive oil was made before electricity. We also had two hands-on cooking classes with Raffaella who is such a lovely woman! Who knew that fresh pasta was so easy to make? She also taught us so many recipes from the starter to desserts and we got to eat it all for lunch! The owners of BelSentiero are amazing. Jan is a wealth of information about just about anything you'd like to talk about. He is so personable that I felt like he was part of the family by the second day. He speaks English which was great since my Italian consisted of just a few phrases. He also speaks Italian, Dutch and maybe even other languages that I'm not aware of . His partner is a great cook and has his own bar in the nearby town of Campiglia d'Orcia which is a short walk away. You will have a couple of light meals there after coming back from wine tasting and lunches around the Val D'Orcia area. The rooms ar BelSentiero were spacious and the king size beds were very comfortable. There are even walk-in closets in each room! I guess all I can say is to check this place out, there wasn't one thing I didn't like during our weeks stay. If you want to know all about the area, if you want to learn how to cook Italian food or just want a comfortable time in Tuscanny I highly recommend staying at BelSentiero. There is something for everyone here even if you don't opt for the Food and Wine Experience. We were picked up in Rome and taken to the train at the end of the week to go on to our next destination. You can also get picked up and returned to the airport in Rome if that's more convenient for you.
