Duna Grande is a unique venue in Italy. In Tuscany you will rarely find a nearly isolated house with direct access to the beach, surrounded by romantic farmland, varied wildlife and unique mediterranean flora. All of this in the sought-after region of the Maremma on the southern Tuscan coast.

The house has been restored at a top level of style and comfort. A generous living and dining room (14 meters long) giving onto a terrace (which stretches along) the lengh of the building, looking onto the sea. On your way down towards the beach you'll find the pool (80 cm deep), what used to be a large basin for cattle and sheep has been turned into a pool (80 cm deep). As this stretch of land is a conservation area, strict laws regulate any building activity. Only the restoration of existing features is allowed.

The house is surrounded by an irrigated mediterranean garden which blends into the surrounding „dunescape“, planted with the local shrubs such as myrtle and juniper. In early summer you will come upon the very special and highly protected sand lilies grow here. Picking prohibited. There is a shaded lot for car-parking behind the house (a bamboo roof on wooden pillars, 35 steps from the house, makes for private parking of your car in the shade.)

A fence closes off the entire estate (from the beach). A garden gate gives you access to the endless beach (135 m. from the house). The beach is public, as all beaches in Italy, but as the public access is far away, only the occasional bather will wander up to your location. A beach club with friendly bar and daily papers is 100 meters down the beach. One of Italy's most fashionable beach clubs called "L'Ultima Spiaggia" is 15km further up the coast. This has a pleasant restautant which serves excellent salads and other summer dishes, as well as fresh cool drinks and the inevitable Capuccino.

A smaller house (with 2 bedrooms), also to rent from us, is at circa 50 meters distance. The two houses are separated by a densely planted hill which allows sufficient privacy for both houses.

The Tuscany region

The wild Maremma coastline

Tuscany is less well known for its wild South-West coastline, along the sea in the Maremma region.

Yet it's natural landscape is amazing – a natural park, long sandy beaches, drained marshes, islands, thermal springs, typical Mediterranean landscapes- and lovers of old ruins come back fully satisfied. In the interior, old towns that are as charming as they are historic abound with stunning Etruscan remains: go for walks in Sovano, Sorano and Pitigliano.

Devotees of the sea, of genuine landscapes, of outings on horseback and of the charm of old, forgotten towns will thus choose this region without hesitation. With fewer tourists and quieter than Central Tuscany, Maremma will make you dream, the complete change of scenery will make you feel mellow: a wonderful journey to the heart of the Mediterranean wilderness.

GEOGRAPHICAL LANDMARKS

Maremma stretches from the Tyrrhenian Sea (a stretch of the Mediterranean between Sardinia and Sicily) up to the north of Latium. With its marshes, it resembles the very own French Camargue. Many of its areas are protected, like the Maremma Natural Park or the Vulci archaeological zone. This means that the local flora and fauna are wild, almost untouched.

Maremma

Landscapes, Nature, Walks

Lovers of wild nature are blessed in this lush and authentic region.

So you will be spoilt for choice:

- Go for a walk in the Maremma Natural Park (Uccellina Mountains).

It is the biggest WWF park in Tuscany and offers 11 marked walking trails, ranging from 2.5km to 12km in length. To join the trails, you need to go to the Alberese tourist centre in the north of the park. Depending on the walk that you choose, you might have the opportunity to see deer, boar, foxes or even hawks.

600 metres north of Alberese, the Centro Turismo Equestre Il Rialto offers accompanied canoe and horseback outings. You can also hire mountain bikes.

- Go for a swim in the natural hot water springs of the Gorello or in the Saturnia thermal baths. You can spend the day there, splashing about in hot-water swimming pools or enjoying heavenly treatments, like a four-hand shower massage or oxygen therapy. You will walk out feeling as light as air.

- Go for a car trip on the Via Panoramica. This road, which is all bends, offers glimpses of some very beautiful coastal landscapes as well as a spectacular view of the famous Isola del Giglio: on this virgin island, you will discover lots of coves, as well as a village in the shadow of a magnificent castle dating from the reign of the Kings of Aragon. Boats from the Toremar and Maregiglio lines will ferry you across for the day, just long enough for a pleasant excursion, from the fishing port of Porto Santo Stefano.

- 15 minutes by car from Marsiliana, discover Niki de Saint-Phalle's Tarot Garden:

it's a nice walk for children, who will love the 22 sculpted figures made of multi-coloured ceramics and glass.

- Go for walk or a swim on the pebble beaches of the coast. The prettiest, and the most popular, is called Feniglia.

Culture, architecture, arts

The village of Pitigliano: built on an outcrop of tufa (volcanic rock), crouching in the shadow of the Orsini Castle; this little village is enchanting. The colour of its houses blends with the colour of the rock. Its Etruscan tombs are carved in the tufa itself. Its medieval alleyways and back streets invite you to wander, especially in the little Ghetto quarter. The town is actually known as Italy's little Jerusalem, since a Jewish community settled here in the 15th century and is still in existence today.

The village of Sovana: a flourishing town in the 7th century BC (Etruscan era), today Sovana is an adorable caramel-coloured village. The Etruscan necropoles, the Roman remains and the Romanesque church of Santa Maria are must-sees.

The village of Sorano: perched on a rocky peak, its houses seem to huddle against one another to avoid toppling into the valley. Go to visit the Fortezza Orsini, which is magnificent.
