Trequanda

Moments away from the house by car the Commune of Trequanda, and it’s pretty hill town centre of same name.

Just beyond view of the house, Trequanda is little known internationally.  Loved by the Milanese, it feels like a well kept secret during the Summer.  Being largely off the tourist maps to date you can get a Coffee and Pastry for the local’s price (1.20 E cappuccino, 1.00 E Pastry) in either bar in the main square!

There’s a lively feel to Trequanda.  The people of the town are open and charming and welcome you with a smile.  As it’s at the top of a long hill climb from Sinalunga, where there are a couple of cycle clubs (Sinalunga is the location of a European level cycling competition and the locals are really into the sport) you’ll often see groups of cyclists in town on weekend mornings pausing for a coffee and a rest before heading out to the Val d’Orcia’s cycling challenges….
