Agriturismo Castello La Grancia

The castle history

In the heart of the Orcia Valley the ancient Castle of Spedaletto, built along the main European road, the Via Francigena, has been transformed into a comfortable Farmhouse holiday called The Grancia. The Castle was built by the priest Ugolino da Rocchione in the 12th century as a fortified farm and as a place to guest the pilgrims.

Since the 1236 the building complex belonged to the Santa Maria Hospital and was called “Orcia bridge’s Hospital”. Important people stopped in this place as Carlo D’Angio and the Pope Pio II.

In the 15th century there was an important restoration and the place was fortified. The Castle of Spedaletto is a very peaceful and quiet place.The Carletti family is the owner of the farmhouse and they always offer to their guests a warm welcome, helpfulness and good company.The farmhouse is divided into two parts: the first part, that used to be the Granary, has been built on the walls of castle; the other part is located in the inner cloister, which is the heart of the castle.In the first room, called the Granary, we have four bedrooms that have a common living room and kitchen with a fireplace. In the second room, located in the inner cloister, we have four bedrooms again with a common living room and kitchen (and soon with the fireplace).

From the Farmhouse you can walk in the nature and see animals like the roe deer pheasants, hares and you will be “disturbed” just by the twittering of the birds.The location of the farmhouse is very close to the lovely towns and village of the Orcia valley like Montalcino, Pienza, San Quirico, Bagno Vignoni.

The Bio swimming pool in farmhouse

Our farm was one of the first to start the farm activity and we were in the perspective that farm, also means contact with nature and the countryside around us.
That’s why we chose the Bio-pool.
The principle is the same as the food that you will find at breakfast or in one of the dinners that we can organize: the products are of our production or to km 0, ie bought by our neighbors.
The natural swimming pool is present in other countries since 1983, the date of construction of the first in Austria.
It has been very successful in the countries of origin, Austria, Switzerland and Germany, where there are also public natural pools, however, in Italy has started to arouse interest only a few years.
