Absolutly to do the walk along the "Sentiero dell'Acqua", a walking street that leads into the forest above the village to trace the origin of the river: a characteristic landscape, so beautiful in autumn with golden and crispy leaves as in the summer with silence and fresh air .

Vivo in campagna, nelle immediate vicinanze di Siena. Le mie origini sono amiatine, mia madre del Vivo d'Orcia e mio padre di Abbadia San Salvatore. Per questo ho imparato ad amara questi luoghi, dove è possibile rilassarsi e godere della natura, trascorrere momenti di pace, relax, assaporando "l'aria buona" (come diceva mia nonna). L'idea di poter condividere con altri le bellezze che ci sono nel monte Amiata, è nata quando mia figlia ha cominciato ad usare la Casa di Adelina ( per noi " la casina delle fate" ) come rifugio per studiare,trascorrere momenti tranquilli, soddisfare la sua passione per la fotografia, soprattutto in autunno, quando i castagni si colorano di un meraviglioso rosso, scappare dal caldo e dall'afa della città.Adoro cucinare e la mia più grande soddisfazione è mettere a tavola amici e parenti preparando piatti semplici, tradizionali e gustosi. Non manca il pane fatto in casa, così come i biscotti e i dolci adatti per la colazione.
