An opulent property with stunning landscaped gardens, located in the midst of Val d'Orcia between Pienza and Montepulciano
Villa Foce is unequivocally Tuscan – an estate built on three levels, packed with old-world charm and filled with beautiful heirloom furniture, books and paintings. All rooms have stunning views over the classic garden and valley. The style is imaginative and opulent.
Situated only a few minutes from the spa town Chianciano Terme and amidst glorious rolling countryside near the wine villages of Montalcino and Montepulciano, the whole property provides absolute peace and tranquility. Set in four hectares and dating back to the seventeenth century, this classic and lush Tuscan garden is divided into geometrical ‘rooms’ by box hedges and lemon trees in terracotta pots.
Villa Foce’s grand travertine stairs lead to its rose garden and a winding wisteria-covered pergola, bordered by lavender hedges. Gentle terraces climb up the hill, where cherry trees, pines, and cypresses grow among wild thyme and rosemary. A long avenue of cypress leads to a stone statue.
Through the woods, a path joins the garden and family cemetery, considered to be one of Cecil Pinsent's best creations. After a stroll through the garden with their glass of Brunello, guests can cool down with a dip in Foce’s inviting swimming pool.

Villa La Foce is located in the Val D’Orcia, an area where the rolling hills are decorated with endless rows of cypress trees, olive groves, and vineyards. The region is known for its majestic castles, thermal spa towns, and tiny medieval villages.
The village of Montalcino, home to the famous Brunello di Montalcino, stands atop a hill covered almost entirely by vineyards and at its centre are signature examples of medieval architecture: the Palazzo dei Priori and the wonderful Rocca fortress, built in about the fourteenth century.
Pienza, not far from the estate, has been declared “Heritage of Mankind” by UNESCO and is considered to be symbolic of the Italian Renaissance (as well as famous for its wonderful pecorino cheese).
In the same area, Montepulciano is another charming village, known as the pearl of the sixteenth century and renowned for the production of wines such as Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
A few minutes from the Villa lies Chianciano Terme, a famous thermal spa town that dates back to Roman times.
