The Fattoria Bellandi’s history
The history of the building dates back to the sixteenth century when it used to be an ancient inn that hosted pilgrims and travelers. The Val d’Orcia is in fact a strategic position still today that connects the north and the south of Italy. You can imagine back then, when there were very few roads and, of course, no cars. Travelers and pilgrims who were on the road for days and coming from all over Europe needed a place to rest, sleep and eat while moving from one location to another. The Fattoria Bellandi welcomed them to a lovely setting.
The original mission of the Fattoria is still today pursued by Enza who, in 2012, made it a lovely and comfortable B&B, restaurant and cafe. Enza is originally from Liguria. In fact, you will be able to enjoy fish dishes typical of her origins, as well as the local specialties.
The rooms are named with Tuscan trees and breakfast is entirely homemade with local products. At Fattoria Bellandi you can also purchase products from the area that can be used while cooking, this way a little piece of the Val d’Orcia will be brought directly at home.

Did you know?
The Val d’Orcia is part of the Unesco World Heritage since 2004. Inclusion by the commission is, among other reasons, because of the numerous paintings dating to the Renaissance which portrayed men and nature living in harmony, which became icons at that time and continue to influence the development of the landscape still today.
