Villa Poggio Tortollo
from £300 /night help
Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Poggio Tortollo is the ground floor of a beautifully restored 400 square meter 5-bedroom former farmhouse in an evocative and unspoilt area of the Tuscan Maremma with a large garden and pool surrounded by 90 hectares of vineyards and olive groves and set against the rolling hills of Tuscany.
A single bed is also available in 2 of the bedrooms. 2 cots available on request.
Poggio Tortollo is around 3km from the centre of the village of Manciano, which dominates the valley with its castle and is close to the well-know spa Saturnia with its hot water spring at 37°C all year round.
Poggio Tortollo is great for all ages and suitable for people with restricted mobility as the accommodation is entirely on the ground floor (please note however, there is shingle around the house).
If you wish, you can also join the grape harvest (Sept/Oct) or olive harvest (Nov/Dec) and purchase our own olive oil and honey.

The Tuscany region
The location is a perfect starting point for adventurous itineraries to discover local wonders such as the charming fortified town of Pitigliano, the more modern Porto Ercole and Porto Santo Stefano located only a few kilometres from the centre of Manciano as well as the beautiful medieval villages of Sovana, Sorano and Capalbio. The sea of Argentario, the shores of Lake Bolsena, the ancient Etruscan city Tarquinia are all within half an hour to an hour's drive. Otherwise, you can simply cycle or walk in our woods under the shadow of pines or relax by the pool.
Leisure activities nearby (all within 20 km) include golf, tennis, horse-riding school, mini-golf.
The charming villages of the fascinating Etruscan civilization such as Vulci and Tarquinia, whose history and culture still permeate this land, are also within an hour's drive.
From Poggio Tortollo you can also discover the Tuscan traditions and history and enjoy the rural culture and the flavours of the local agriculture. An ideal blend of tranquillity and activity, Poggio Tortollo is perfect for those seeking nature and the peace that is so often absent from our hectic everyday lives. A little further south you will reach Orvieto situated on the flat summit of a large butte of volcanic tuff and one of the most dramatic cities in Europe.
Wildlife lovers can enjoy the WWF oases at Orbetello, the islands of Giglio and Giannutri and the Uccellina Park.
Those who love the mountains can instead visit Monte Amiata (1738 metres high), the largest of the lava domes, and only 60 kilometres away .
