The last 7 days of our Italy vacation were spent at the beautiful BelSetiero in the heart of Val d'Orcia. Of our 3 weeks in Italy, our favorite was this final week. As part of the Villa's Food and Wine Experience, we experienced the best that Tuscany has to offer. Our host, Jan Greenan, created a week of experiences that we would have never done on our own, and we would have never know about the many wonderful venues and fun things to do without him. From the minute Jan picked us up at the train station in Siena, to our goodbyes at the Rome airport, we were wined, dined and treated like royalty. Our week was filled with visits to local wineries, such as Avignonese and Montemercurio, fun filled truffle hunting with Pierre Paulo, pasta making classes at Podere il Casale with Sondra, and cheese factory tour with Giuseppe at Fattoria Pianporcino. Can't forget the beautiful gardens at La Foce. Also visits to the charming and historical villages of Montepulciano, Campiglia, Montalcino and Pienza. Another highlight was the fantastic BBQ at BelSentiero prepared by the multi-talented Renzo Chirinos. Our final night we had dinner at the fabulous Michelin-Starred il Silene. We cannot thank Jan and Renzo enough for the sensational week (not having to drive was a bonus) We have promised to return and we are looking forward to that day. Our vacation of a lifetime has come to an end but the memories we made will last forever.

Dale, it was an absolute pleasure to host you and Jeannette! I'm glad that we were able to show you some of the hidden gems of the Val d'Orcia, introduce you to its beautiful landscapes, people, food and wine. It's always gratifying when we have guests who appreciate what we have to offer ... this makes it both fun and memorable for all of us! We look forward to hosting you here again, introducing you to yet more of the wineries of the Brunello, Montepulciano and Orcia, and possibly enjoying a local food festival together if the timing is right. Until your next visit!

The location of BelSentiero is ideal. Just outside of Campiglia d'Orcia, in the Southern part of the Val d'Orcia, it has an absolutely breathtaking view over the valley – as far as Pienza even. This view is even more stunning now that the new infinity pool has been completed and it looks truly spectacular. We spent a week at BelSentiero in August and it was by far one of the best vacations we have ever had. Jan and Renzo have recently renovated the building and it's absolutely beautiful. They are amazing hosts, as Jan knows everything there is to know about culture, restaurants, wine and olive oil and we had one of the best Tagliere of our lives at Renzo's – don't miss out on it! Besides that, we also enjoyed all of the personal conversations we had with both of them. We are definitely planning on coming back and visiting this beautiful place again in the future

We had booked BelSentiero in July 2019 for a visit in June 2020. Due to COVID we were unable to travel but Jan was so communicative and understanding in helping us to finally make the trip in June 2021. And, oh was it worth the wait! BelSentiero is the place to stay if you want to explore the less touristy, picturesque villages of Tuscany as well as the more well known Pienza, Montalcino and Montepulciano. Jan was the perfect host and was a wealth of knowledge and recommended places to visit that we would never have found in a tour guide. He made reservations on our behalf to restaurants, a cooking class, a local organic farm tour, wine tasting, etc. and nothing was too much trouble. We had wonderful views from our large bedroom with walk-in closet and each morning looked forward to breakfast outside overlooking Val D'Orcia. We also enjoyed meeting Jan's partner, Renzo and visited his bar in the local village of Campiglia D"Orcia a few times. They were also in the process of building a spectacular edge pool on the property, nearing completion, which will perfect the BelSentiero Estate. Cannot recommend it highly enough!

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!

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.

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.

Just returned from Tuscany and cannot say enough about an upscale, rustic country villa we (two couples) stayed at for three nights in the stunning Val d’Orcia. Proprietor Jan has created a haven with attention to detail that is just amazing. From the oversized comfortable bedding, the covered outdoor dining/living area, the manicured rosemary hedges, vegetable garden, I could go on and on. He will also help you plan your days with visits to wineries, towns, cooking lessons, whatever you are looking for. He has excellent travel advice and knows this area so well. Perfect spot away from crowds and tourists and easily reachable by car from Rome or Florence. Worth noting that my 6 ft. 3 husband always complains about beds and said mattress and sheets were most comfortable he has ever experienced.
