Holidays at Agriturismo Montemiliano in Monterchi (1000 m from the Museum of the Madonna del Parto, with panoramic view): 2 persons in double room with bathroom, B & B.
Walking between myth and reality to discover the enchanted valley which houses the "Madonna del Parto": Marian icon, protector of pregnant women, painted by Piero for the chapel of Santa Maria della Selva, sylvan place inhabited by nature spirits. Here once the mothers drank water from a source close to the church and to avoid caesarean section touched the dress and the belly of Mary. Even today pregnant women offer flowers and ears.
The valley was also the home of the "Omo Salvatico", a legendary hairy and wild human with superhuman strength. It is said that every day devour an animal: lamb, goat or caw, which led – for killing and eating it – in its "Tina" to Murcia, a place characterized by forests, woods and chestnut trees.
Monterchi is strategically located for visiting the masterpieces of Piero della Francesca; about halfway between Sansepolcro with the splendid "Resurrection", the famous fresco by Piero della Francesca, who also has his self-portrait, and Arezzo where the "Legend of the True Cross" will excite you. A few kilometers Urbino and "Double portrait of the Dukes of Urbino" will allow you to deepen the knowledge of the work of Piero.
And at the end of visits relax in the pool overlooking the landscape that has inspired the works of Piero and enjoy the large garden, maybe preparing a barbecue, which can be enjoyed under the pergola with a view of the hills around.
