To See

Valdera offers the typical tuscan landscape with soft rolling hills and a network of small waterways, shaped by agricultural activities since antiquity.

Combined works of nature and humankind, this amazing landscape expresses a long, wise and intimate relationship beetween people and their natural environment.
This territory preserves its rural and agricultural matrix: fields are cultivated with care; open plains are marked with long rows of fruit-trees, undulating hills are dotted with olive groves and vineyards; many farms produce wine, olive oil, fruits and sunflowers and cereal grainns, too.
Typical tuscan stone farmhouses of a grey-yellow colour, with rows of cypress tree are set on hilltops, surrounded by cultivated fields, pine-trees and ancient woods achieving an ever changing sequence of colour from season to season.

It’s a rural territory where nature-lovers can enjoy ancient footpaths, mountain bike and horse riding trails with magnificent panoramic views, crossing fields to reach idyllic hill-toop towns steeped in history, parish churches, surrounded by cherry-trees, olive-trees, vineyards, in a land rich in contemporary art spaces and antique works of art.
