The Lazy Olive Glamping is located in the idyllic Tuscan countryside, allowing guests to enjoy a full immersion in nature, beauty and silence with the comfort of staying in a Chic Tent with private bathroom, a proper bed and air con.
There are only 8 tents and exclusively 16 guests can be hosted at the max.
Tents are set in our organic olive grove and have breath taking views over vineyards and the medieval village of Pienza. The simple and chic interiors are designed by the architect/owner.
All of the ten tents dotted around under the trees are calm and simple spaces, carefully crafted to lull you into the gentle rhythm of country life. The big bed in a tent on the decking feels like an island on an island. The stunning views and the lovely array of soft fabrics and furnishings will make lie-ins irresistible and remote-controlled air con makes them comfortable all day and night too. Even the call of nature doesn’t mean having to go outside, as each tent has a discretely placed flushing loo in a screened section inside. When you do decide to head out, you can freshen up in the tent’s outside shower, screened from your neighbours but letting the sun-warmed water run straight into the river, carrying away the lather of the local soap. For more traditional bathers, there are showers up at the red-brick casetta, where you’ll also find the shared kitchen space, a Weber grill, some tranquil seating spots and the huge outdoor dining table, big enough for the whole camp to share a meal at.
There is a swimming pool open 24/7, an organic vegetable garden for our guests, wi-fi, a "Casetta" facing our boutique vineyard with a shared kitchen and lounge area. Bbq facilities on site and trattorias and great restaurants between 5 and 10min drive.
There is laundry facilities for our guests with two washing machines, iron and ironing board.
Although the area is very safe, we have a person looking after tents and guests 24/7, you can lock your tent and in each one there is a chest with a padlock for your ipad, laptop or any item you want to keep safe. We still suggest not to leave very precious things unattended in the tent.
We are 20min from Montalcino and Pienza, 30min from Montepulciano, 40min from Siena and 1h30 from Florence.
In the countryside around you, you can visit ancient towns, famous wine spots like Montepulciano and even historic Florence, or just wander down to the neighbouring farm and watch the goats. Days of exploration on borrowed bikes or by car blend into cool afternoons on the slopes under the trees and evenings when the fairy lights come on and give the whole camp a glowing, festival feel. There are plenty of trattoria nearby where you can try some local flavour, but you’re more than welcome to cook for yourself after a quick raid of the organic veg garden, as long as the resident badger hasn’t finished it all off on his nightly visits.
You will meet your neighbours from the forest next to the olive grove and all around you. You can hear and see lots of crickets and cicadas, magpies, jays, lots of pheasants and kestrels, badgers, foxes, pole cats, wild boar, deer especially at sunset, porcupines.
Closest airports are Perugia 50min drive, Florence 1h30 drive, Pisa 2h drive, Bologna and Rome 2h30 drive.
It is a perfect place to enjoy chill moments reading a book in the peaceful and stunning countryside, take walks, have quality time with your loved ones, relax by the pool or explore the little medieval villages and vineyards all around.
We do have solar panels to produce your hot water and our Glamping is a pop up, we do take care of dismantling all the tents and the swimming pool each year to work on our olive grove, leave it as much as possible unspoilt and produce our organic olive oil that you can taste if you come and stay with us.
A return to simple life awaits you. Rustic atmospheres, warm evenings and nights sleeping in bell tents set in Tuscan bucolic countryside.
What can be better to enjoy company of your loved ones, to gain slowness, to listed to cicadas, and of course drink great wines.
Dreamy olive grove with tents dotted in it, swimming pool with views over the vineyards.

Incredible experience! The tent had everything you need, air conditioning during the day for the heat and heavier blankets for the night. The kitchen service is great for cooking a dinner and getting together to share the evening with other guests. Very quiet and isolated, not difficult to reach. The location is ideal for reaching the most important towns in a short time. Highly recommended!
Esperienza incredibile! La tenda aveva tutto il necessario, aria condizionata durante il giorno per il caldo e coperte più pesanti per la notte. Il servizio della cucina è ottimo per poter cucinare una cena e ritrovarsi per condividere la serata con altri ospiti. Molto tranquillo e isolato, non complicato da raggiungere. La posizione é ideale per raggiungere le cittadine più importanti in poco tempo. Molto consigliato!
