Paradise between Val d'Orcia and Val d'Asso
Three reasons why you'll love it here
- The peaceful countryside of Val d'Asso
- Cooking lessons held by award winning chefs
- A beautifully restored medieval church in the heart of the Crete Senesi
Occupying a cluster of old stone buildings which originally served as a church, a priest's house and a farmhouse, Pieve a Pava is a gorgeous rural retreat just outside the tiny Tuscan town of San Giovanni d'Asso, in the heart of the Crete Senesi.
Snippets of history
The origins of Pieve a Pava date back to the middle ages, when the tiny house of worship was contended by the cities of Siena, Florence and Arezzo, during their battles for the dominion of the Val d'Orcia and Val d'Asso
Pieve a Pava has just five individually appointed bedrooms, located either in the priest's house or the adjoining farmhouse.
All rooms feature a pleasing combination of traditional rustic furnishings and contemporary, hotel standard, amenities
Pieva a Pava's living area is the heart of the guesthouse, designed to provide a welcoming space in which holidaymakers are free to pass the time of day.
During the long summer season, the pretty internal courtyard, peaceful gardens and secluded swimming pool provide ideal locations in which to relax with a good book and a glass of good Tuscan wine...
Although the guest house does not have a restaurant, three days a week, in Pieve a Pava's professional kitchen, a selection of delicious Tuscan specialties are prepared; typical dishes to be enjoyed in the company of the other guests, sitting around the large communal dining table.
On request, special dinners, wedding receptions and even cooking courses held by Michelin star chefs are organized
In November, guests have the opportunity to participate in the olive harvest and take some of the resulting extra virgin olive oil home with them as an edible souvenir of their holiday in Tuscany.
