A renovation in Val d'Orcia

The farmhouse is located near the historic centre of Castelmuzio, a small village in Val d'Orcia along the road leading to Pienza. It is nestled halfway up a hillside and looks towards the parish church of S. Anna in Camprena, a former 15th-century Benedictine Monastery whose refectory has a splendid cycle of frescoes (1503) by Antonio Bazzi, known as Il Sodoma, and where Anthony Minghella filmed some scenes of 'The English Patient'.
