Southwest of the city of Siena you can find one of the most beautiful areas in the world, the Crete Senesi: the map of that territory includes Rapolano Terme, Trequanda, Monteroni d'Arbia, Buonconvento, San Giovanni d'Asso and Asciano. Borgo Casabianca is located in Asciano, one of the villages belonging to the Crete Italy, and is the ideal base for a tour of the Crete Senesi by car, on horseback, by bike or on foot.
Those routes through the Crete Senesi are unique in the world: the clay in the soil creates a landscape with typical blue-gray shades. Some say it reminds the view of the moon: for sure the path through the Italian Crete is lovely and makes tourists feel light-years away from everyday life.
The visit of the Crete Senesi by any means winds through the gently sloping hills, dotted with solitary oaks and cypresses; some isolated farms stand on top of those hills, while in the valleys you can find wider stretches of forest. The Crete Senesi in Tuscany are to be fully lived during your holiday in Italy, and Borgo Casabianca in Asciano is the ideal starting point for that experience.
