Beer and picnic in the Tuscan hills: the Essential of nature
There is nothing better than an outdoor picnic to immerse yourself in the Tuscan landscapes and there is nothing better than a good craft beer to cool off a summer picnic. The Natural Reserve of Lucciola Bella, the Strada della Foce, the Pieve di Corsignano, the Strada del Gladiatore the Vivo d'Orcia and many others: there are many enchanting places that we could suggest, but there is one which we are particularly fond of. It is a hidden corner of pure peace and beauty that is located along the Strada del Riguardo and that the Società Agricola Poggiarello has embellished with that little jewel that is the Relais Sce Quiríc.
