The Tuscany region
A very peaceful place for relaxing and yet very near to art centres such as Florence (1 hour drive) and Siena (50 km). Radicondoli is situated between Siena ( 50 km) and the wonderful coast of "Maremma Toscana". It is a beautyful little town in the heart of Tuscany the nice stone buildings are surrounded by cypress, rosemary, laurel and roses, colours and flagrances of past time.
At night, lights make a charming atmosphere.
The terracotta floors, the wooden beams, the stone walls, typical of the Tuscan rural architecture make Radicondoli full of a suggestive charm.
Once again people are looking for destinations that have not been over-hyped, for places where they can rediscover the classical elements of existence: earth, water, air and fire. Places like Radicondoli, which offers a taste of the old Tuscany. It is located in the valley of the Cecina River, in the west of the province of Siena, not far from Volterra and the sea.
In Radicondoli life follows the rhythms of nature, in keeping with the ancient Roman concept of otium, of the leisure and time that are needed to restore body and mind. Here you can find hills, forests, lakes, wild animals and vegetable gardens.
Something new to discover in every season: from the splendid colors of the autumn foliage to gazing at the stars in the clear winter sky, from rides on horseback to relaxing in pool of water, all amidst breathtaking scenery. Ideal for friends on vacation or for managers who need to recharge their batteries.
A visit to Radicondoli is a unique human and cultural experience. It is a mutual exchange of feelings, ideas and information. A coming together of different ways and worlds that enrich one another. There are many “slogans” that become reality here: you can see for yourself what environmental sustainability means and how it is possible to make use of alternative sources of energy, such as solar panels, photovoltaic cells and biomass heating fueled by wood chips. You can learn all about a lifestyle that enjoyed great favor among the upper classes of ancient Rome many centuries ago and has now been forgotten. Nothing complicated. On the contrary, all you have to do is go back to that now unfamiliar simplicity and take a break from it all. What the Romans called otium is time to devote to yourself, to physical activities and pleasures like reading, playing games, philosophizing, exchanging dreams and ideas. Pursuing beauty and harmony and getting in touch with nature. And above all not letting yourself be overwhelmed by the opposite concept of negotium, “business” in the literal sense of the word: work, stress, hectic activity, racing against time are all banned. The swimming pool help you to relax and detoxify; nature and the stars to get back in touch with the world.
And so all that remains is to wish you good otium!

"Good accommodation in great location with friendly helpful locals."
This apartment is located on the outskirts of the village of Radicondoli which is in the heart of Tuscany countryside, and a great location for exploring Tuscany. We were two adults and one child so the apartment was very big for us not sure it would be great for seven. The 3 bedrooms are big but the living area would be very cosy. It is really well equipped having all the mod cons. It comes with a lovely pool which is well kept and has gorgeous views of the Tuscan countryside and is shared with houses mostly locals so is never very crowded, and all we met were very friendly. They are very strict about the pool rules. Don't forget your hat! There are no beds and little seating around the pool.
The village of Radicondoli is lovely typical Tuscan with three restaurants all reasonable and a few shops for provisions. It is an easy walk to the village from the apartment. If you get the chance to go on the Tuscan evening with Salvotore then do as it was a great evening.
The only downside to the apartment was the outside space, it needs a little TLC and garden furniture and as it is downstairs from the apartment it is a pain to carry things up and down so we never ate outside. Otherwise this would have got a five rating. Katrina who managed the flat was fantastic and really helpful with perfect English.
