In this village you will find some restaurants, bars and grocery shops so you can enjoy the pleasure of buying locally.For wellness lovers, we recommend a visit to the nearby Fonteverde resort center (3 km) which is one of the best spas in Europe provided with natural hot springs from the underground. Other easily accessible spas are: Montepulciano (with the charm of its Renaissance palaces and the pleasure of good wine), Chianciano Terme and Bagno Vignoni, which combine the tranquility and beauty of the landscapes with the pleasure of spending time with the body thanks to their amazing healing waters.

Moreover we suggest to reach Cortona, Etruscan and Medieval town from Valdichiana area, built on a hilltop. It boasts a glorious past: the legendary de' Medici family ruled it in the 15th century.
