Meet Civitella Paganico

Enjoy a slower pace of life among the forest-filled hills and ancient city walls of Tuscany’s Civitella Paganico.

Civitella Paganico is a commune in Tuscany, which is the Italian name for a municipality or collection of villages. The entire area is rather large, though the population is small. This means you can enjoy a truly rural lifestyle. Civitella Paganico is set among vast rolling hills and mountains, its elevation ranging from 144 to 1,955 feet. You can choose to live in a small town or find a property that sits alone, far from any neighbors. The commune has been inhabited since the Palaeolithic age and is careful to preserve much of its own history. For instance, the largest village, Paganico, still has its original Medieval city walls and towers in place. This is a calm, peaceful community that is strongly connected to nature. Many visitors come for the magical Petriolo hot springs where you can wash off your daily stress. The area is a sleepy, farming region, that offers digital nomads some respite from the hustle of urban life

Where to live in Civitella Paganico

Civitella Paganico isn’t one town or city but rather a collection of many villages. You can choose to live somewhere built-up and relatively urban or opt for a home that is completely remote and distant from any other. Even in the most populous town, however, you won’t be in a community of more than 1000 people. You should therefore be willing to forego many of the amenities you’d get in a larger town. If you don’t have access to a vehicle of your own, then choose a village with transport links.

Best Neighborhoods in Civitella Paganico

There are no bad neighborhoods in Civitella Paganico. Crime is low and you can enjoy a peaceful, relaxing lifestyle wherever you live. You should instead think about convenience. Without a car, it’s important to stick to the larger villages that are well-served by bus and rail stations. For the hot springs and access to Siena, find a property in the north of the commune. For proximity to Grosseto, southern villages are preferable. Ultimately, try to find a reasonably-priced villa with amazing views.
