Sunflower & San Quirico: discovering Val d’Orcia

About ten years ago, my parents, Peter and Ezzy, fell deeply in love with a small village they happened to visit during a trip in Val d’Orcia: San Quirico. So much in love that they decided to buy a house and move there from the far north of Italy where my family originally comes from. Now they spend almost half of the year – the rest is for my sister who still lives in the north – in this magnificent natural scenery of the Val d’Orcia that extends through the Tuscan hills and in 2004 was inserted onto the UNESCO World Heritage List.

You will agree with me that I’m a very lucky daughter as I can go and visit them often, most of the time taking some friends with me in magical adventures, cooking with my mum, wine tasting in Montalcino, learning Italian while walking on the gently-rolling hills covered in the dense vegetation of vineyards, olive groves, cypresses, beech and chestnut trees that the Val d’Orcia kindly lays out before the eyes of its visitors.
