Beautiful Tuscany
Holiday apartments

Location and Map


Orciatico is located in the heart of Tuscany in a very central position between historical and artistic towns and cities; Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Volterra, San Gimigniano, and is only 30 kms from the sea.  There are wonderful views of the Tuscan countryside, and on a clear sunny day the Leaning Tower of Pisa can be seen.  The village offers a very relaxing and peaceful stay.

Orciatico is an ancient medieval village.  Its castle, which was founded by Longobards in the seventh century, was the outmost bulwark of the valley of the river Era.  For this reason, Volterra, Pisa and Florence contended it continually.  

Today the village has little more than 200 habitants, all of them friendly, and the castle now contains residential and holiday apartments.  Orciatico is surrounded by vast woods.  It may well be the starting point of full immersion in uncontaminated nature.  There are natural phenomena (such as the emission of carbon dioxide at 'I Borboi') and you can view the remains of time gone by, such as the fortress of Pietracassia (a medieval castle, whose ruins dominate the valley of the torrent Fosce from the top of a wooded hill) or the windmills (the ruins which can be seen and recently have been restored) just a short walk from the village.

In the village, there are two grocers, a restaurant, a bar, a post office, a bank, a doctors surgery and a tennis court.  A town with all shops is Lajatico (the birthtown of our most famous italian tenor, Andrea Bocelli) which is 5 kms away,  supermarkets are within 10 minutes by car.


Lajatico lies between the Era and Cecina Valleys and overlooks the gently rolling Tuscan hills.

Particularly interesting for their historical, artistic and architectural heritage, both Lajatico and the nearby village of Orciatico encompass castles, Medieval villages, the Rocca di Pietracassia and Spedaletto built in Medieval alberese stone and rose hued bricks, all suggestive of the remote Middle Ages. A special mention should be made of the ancient Rocca di Pietracassia that still dominates the skyline and continues to defy the elements.

The Comune of Lajatico, 200 to 500 metres a.s.l., is easily accessible from Volterra, San Gimignano, Siena, Pisa and Florence. Here the culinary delights of Tuscany are traditionally preserved. Wine, olive oil and chestnuts are displayed each year at the village fairs where the visitor can savour genuine produce, local customs ,culture and history.

Any time of the year is ideal to come and stay on the farms or in the holiday homes and delight in country living.

There are many enchanting nature trails and footpaths, tennis courts and public swimming pools.

Jill, it looks absolutely irresistable. If I can come to your area, I will definitely want to check out staying with you. It seems perfect!

The location was wonderful, so easy to get into the bigger cities. We had a wonderful time, very relaxing, everything we needed we found closeby. Our thanks go to Jill and Flavio for making our honeymoon the best anyone could desire and many thanks for the beautiful flowers! We will definitely return.
