The area is well known thanks to Il Teatro del Silenzio, an Italian open air amphitheatre located in Lajatico, four kms from Orciatico and hometown of the classical crossover tenor Andrea Bocelli.
The theatre remains silent all through the year but once every July people from all over the world visit as the theatre hosts a concert by Andrea Bocelli, its honorary president, and other international stars.
You will love this apartment for sale in Orciatico!
First of all, Casa Orciatico is in spotless condition.
I asked the current owners to write a few lines regarding their experience in Orciatico as they bought this apartment years ago. Here’s what they said:
“When we think of Orciatico we think of peace, tranquillity and living the Italian lifestyle in a traditional unspoilt village.
The wonderful climate, the kindness and warmth of its people and the village’s traditional values is why Orciatico is a special place.
Those who live and stay there can enjoy the produce of its land, including local olive oil, wine and game as well as its famous annual chestnut festival and village events in the piazza such as dancing and opera.
If you are lucky, on a springtime walk you might find some wild asparagus which grows in the village hedgerows.
We were seeking a little piece of Italy off the tourist trail and found it in a village that ticked all the boxes – Orciatico has it all!”
