Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Great traditional food, fantastic wines, beautiful countryside, long hot summer days. Hill top villages, churches hiding renaissance frescoes and ceramics ........ sweeping uncrowded beaches with a beautifully clean sea ..... all the cliches about Tuscany are here and they're all true - especially in here Maremma, the unspoilt southern part of the region. South of Siena, Maremma runs down to the border with Lazio. This is a land of Etruscan remains, gently rolling hills, untouched medieval villages with a pace of life that can take you back 50 years if not more.

Roccalbegna

Maremma is the name given to the southernmost area of Tuscany. The rolling hills of this area are famous for their unspoilt natural beauty. Typical local products are Pecorino cheese, olive oil and the local wines Morellino di Scansano and Montecucco. This is a great place to experience a rural way of life that has changed little for hundreds of years.

'One of the finest villages in southern Tuscany' ( Rough Guide), Roccalbegna was built over 800 years ago as an outpost of the Republic of Siena and it's changed very little since. Admire the recently restored 15 th century trpitych in the norman church. Art fans can ask for admission to the smaller chapel that houses a splendid early renaissance painting.

The hot springs of Saturnia are 20 minutes away. Join the dressing gown clad Italians for a therapeutic dip in the waterfall or visit the Spa hotel for a massage - or a round of golf.

The Tuscan seaside resorts of Castiglione della Pesacia and Marina di Grosseto offer all the facilities you'd expect of an Italian seaside resort. If serried ranks of 'ombrellone' aren't your thing then the four mile long beach in the 'Parco dell'Ucillina' just south of Grosseto is for you, not a single 'ombrellone' operation just mile after mile of golden sand.

The Etruscans lived peacefully in this area for hundreds of years until their southern neighbours in Rome began to flex their muscles. The Romans adopted many Etruscan traditions, still are some with us today. The Etruscan winged gods were adopted by Rome and subsequently the Christian church to give us angels. The Etruscan remains of Sovana and Pitigliano are 30 minutes away.

The area boasts numerous nature reserves and is great for walking and bird watching. The cool chestnut forests of Mont Amiata are a real treat at the height of summer.

Siena and other Tuscan classics such as Montepulciano and Pienza are an hour away. Day trips to Rome and Florence are possible.

“Stone house located in the middle of tuscan nature”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2015

We travelled with our 3 year old twins. The house had the perfect size and distribution for our family. It was very clean and we found everything we needed for our stay, from clean towels and sheets to kitchen utensils and information leaflets and books. The garden is very peaceful and isolated, equipped with lounge chairs, a table and chairs and a small bbq, ideal to spend relaxing evenings or mornings.The view of the sunset from that terrace is amazing. Graham was very helpful during our stay, giving us tips and ideas for our daily trips. The only two odds we found were that the road to get there is a bit bumpy, and also the bugs at night in the terrace (crickets mainly), but they were all harmless. The weather in that area is cooler than in the rest of Tuscany in August, so you might need a light jacket at night.

Owner's reply: I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay here. Regarding access, there are plans to cement a section of the road to the nearby village of Roccalbegna, this will make it easier to reach the shops and restaurants there.

“superb country retreat”
