The Accessible Tuscany Agriturismo near Montalcino is located inside the Val d’Orcia valley which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Extracted from the UNESCO website:
“The Val d’Orcia is an exceptional reflection of the way the landscape was re-written in Renaissance times to reflect the ideals of good governance and to create an aesthetically pleasing pictures.
The landscape of the Val d’Orcia was celebrated by painters from the Siennese School, which flourished during the Renaissance. Images of the Val d’Orcia, and particularly depictions of landscapes where people are depicted as living in harmony with nature, have come to be seen as icons of the Renaissance and have profoundly influenced the development of landscape thinking.”
Note: Demand for this villa is extremely high so you should book 6 to 9 months in advance.

I gave this agriturismo a 4 Star Sage Accessibility Rating because it has a flat entrance to the building, wide doors, a roll-in shower, and a grab bar next to the toilet. It did not get a higher rating because it has a slope rather than flat access to the pool.
