At Follonico hotel in Tuscany, an ancient typewriter graces a dressing table, a wedding dress hangs on a wall, crockery is playfully mismatched, and shots of vivid colour vie with the green, green countryside.

This beautifully restored 200-year-old farmhouse is hidden away in a Tuscan valley with panoramic views of astonishing countryside. The hotel only has six rooms with stone wall and exposed beams, all very charmingly decorated. The French windows give views on the vineyards, olive groves and picturesque hilltop villages.

There is plenty to do in and around the hotel. You can ask the owners to organise a cookery class. Suzanne and Fabio are also more than happy to help arrange an impromptu picnic in the grounds, and will provide cutlery and crockery.

The Val D’Orcia region contains the hill town of Montalcino (renowned for its Brunello wine) and Pienza, a World Heritage Cultural Landscape and impressively preserved Renaissance town. Montepulciano has won global acclaim for its wonderful red wines; Montefollonico is worth exploring for its mediaeval architecture. Siena is only 30–45 minutes away, and is famous for its art galleries, museums, restaurants and historic architecture.

    I’ve been reading your blog for a long time and I actually stayed in this b&b over the summer. Glad you mention it, the smaller rooms each have their private patio with a view over the countrysid. it’s heaven !

    I have so many happy memories in Tuscany and we hope one day to relocate there when the time is right. These images fill me with a real sense of longing and I’m desperate to visit this b&b now. Thank you for sharing!
