Podere Tepolino 2, 58033 - Castel del Piano - Grosseto
cell: +39 335 6582571

Castel del Piano is reachable from Paganico, a village on the SS 223 of Paganico (Siena-Grosseto), following the signs for Monte Amiata.


Getting to Tepolino by::

How to reach Castel del Piano coming from the North:
My suggestion is to reach CdP exit from the A1 at Firenze IMPRUNETA (the exit before Florence Sud).
At the exit of the motorway turn right, onto Siena Grosseto. Take this state road (largely 4 lanes and pay close attention to the speed cameras which are well marked) to PAGANICO NORD.
The exit is just after a new gallery.
You will have to exit on the right, take a few hundred meters downhill and then turn left following the signs for MONTE AMIATA, Castel del Piano.
Everything si very easy and well reported.
For those coming from the South on the highway:
Exit the A1 at CHIUSI and follow the signs for Chianciano Terme (SP146), then towards Campeggia d'Orcia (SP 40 and then SP 113), Vivo d'Orcia (SP 45), Pescina (SP 107), then to Castel del Piano (SP 107 then SP 111).
ARRIVED TO THE CROSSROAD THAT ON THE RIGHT GOES TO CASTEL DEL PIANO, TURNO LEFT TO SEGGIANO.
After about 400m you will easily recognize a restaurant on your right. -170 gr is the name - with a white shed. In front of this restaurant you will find on your LEFT a (somewhat hidden and downhill) street indicating LA MARRONA, and a white sign indicating the Ianua Medica Amiata Association (located in our farm).
If by chance, during your quest, you see on the right a little industrial building named FUNGO AMIATA,it means you went a few hundred meters too far and you have to go back.
The downhill road is asphalted for a certain stretch, then becomes a white road and then returns asphalted. You will have to drive for about a kilometer.
Shortly after the asphalt pick up, on the RIGHT, you will find a big wooden sign: Ass. Ianua Medica Amiata - Podere Tepolino - Az. Pachamama.
There are 3 different denominations that indicate our farm, the Podere Tepolino and an association which is located in our farm too.
Turn right you will meet after a few meters Podere Pinzicalari, belonging to our friend Federico del Conte. Continue and the road ends at Podere Tepolino after about 300 meters.
For those coming from the South following Aurelia: Leave PAGANICO NORD and then follow the same directions above to go to Castel del Piano.
From Castel del Piano:
You have to follow the signs towards SEGGIANO.
From the village of Castel del Piano in the direction of Seggiano, drive 2,5 km. You will recognize a plant shop (Lodi) on your right on a left bend curve. Few meters after you can see a junction on the right uphill for Vivo D'Orcia - Pescina. You have to pass over this junction and after about 400m you will find on your LEFT a road indicating LA MARRONA (somewhat hidden and downhill), and a white sign indicating the Ianua Medica Amiata Association (locate in our farm).
You will have to drive the downhill road for about a kilometer. At the beginning the road is asphalted for a certain stretch, then becomes a white road and then returns asphalted. Shortly after the returned asphalt pick up, on the RIGHT, you will find a big wooden sign: Ass. Ianua Medica Amiata - Podere Tepolino - Az. Pachamama.
There are 3 different denominations that indicate our farm: Podere Tepolino.
Turn right you will meet after a few meters Podere Pinzicalari, our friend Federico del Conte. Continue and the road ends at Tepolino after about 300 meters.
DO NOT FOLLOW THE INDICATION OF THE NAVIGATOR with the destination of Podere Tepolino. You could be lost in the forest because of a common mistake of those maps or you could reach the locality Tepolini, near us but from which we cannot get to our farm by car.
You can only use the navigator to reach Castel del Piano or continue from there towards Seggiano.
NOT to drive you to Podere Tepolino.
