The Tuscany region

The Maremma is one of my favourite stretches of unspoilt Italian coastline and lies within the Maremma National Park– a long coastal swathe in southern Tuscany that for centuries was a malarial swamp populated only by a few hardy fishermen and the local cattle rangers known as butteri. The Medici began draining the marshes in the 18th century, but the job wasn't finished until the Fifties. As a result, this is still a place of wide-open spaces, with most of the towns like Sassofortino are clustered on hilltops some way inland.

One of the best things about this stretch of coastline is the way it combines sand between the toes with all the gourmet pleasures of the Tuscan countryside just inland. You can be towelling down after a last dip at 6pm and enjoying a glass of brunello on the ramparts of a picture-perfect hilltown half an hour later. It's la spiaggia and la dolce vita in one neat package.
