Location description from owner
The Tuscany region
Tuscany is considered to be one of the most beautiful Italian regions with its vineyards, olive groves, medieval hilltop towns and rustic castles. Maremma is the southern part of Tuscany famous not only for its sandy beaches but also for the sheer quantity of historic towns and medieval villages. Maremma spans from the steep slopes of Monte Amiata, an extinct volcano reaching the wooded heights of 1738 m., down to the Tyrrhenian Sea. Rather uncontaminated by tourists it is a place for lover of nature and simplicity. Here you can enjoy the culture and the beautiful landscape without being bothered by the tourist crowds, but you are nevertheless not far away from from the sea, the hot springs and the famous Tuscan cities.
This is an ideal place for a relaxing holiday in a countryside which has changed very little in the last few centuries. The ancient castle of Triana. can be seen 1 kilometer away. In the nearby villages you can find excellent restaurants where you can taste the local cuisine. Street fairs are a regular occurence in the summer.
The charming village of Roccalbegna, 7 kilometers from Poderone, has several notable fortifications, a Romanesque-Gothic church from the 13th-14th centuries with antique paintings and a large tower which dominates the village. Roccalbegna has a couple of restaurants, a butcher, two general stores, a pharmacy, a bar, a post office bank with an ATM and a well known cheese maker (Caseificio il Fiorino). In the surrounding of Roccalbegna there are numerous paths for walking and exploring the area, which will take you along the river through forests. The hamlet of Cana near Roccalbegna has also an Aldobrandeschi-built line of walls from the 13th century. The Bosco dei Rocconi Nature Reserve a few kilometers away is one of the most beautiful and diverse parks in Tuscany. Its territory is wild and ruggard, punctuated by deep gorges and several caves just waiting to be discovered by an intrepid traveller. It is a paradise for bird watcher.
A 15 minutes drive on the other direction you will find the town of Arcidosso, one of the most striking in the area. The historic centre is dominated by the Aldobrandeschi castle. The Tibetan Centre at Merigar close to Arcidosso is a major Buddhist centre.
A few kilometers away there is Santa Fiora with its medieval centre, the Fishpond and botanical garden and the Museum of Mines. Santa Fiora is listed among the most beautiful villages in Italy by the Italian Tourism Association "Touring club": You can see their website called bestsmalltownsitaly.
Not far away there are many more stunning villages such as the Tufo towns of Pitigliano, Sovana and Sorano, built on the top of a hill, all within a fifty-minute drive.
You can reach the top of Mount Amiata sky resort in about 20 minutes by car. In Mount Amiata you can find paths for hiking, those for the mountain bike, parks and naturalistic areas.
Beaches (Marina di Grosseto and Principina a Mare) are 60 kilometers away. In the heart of Tuscan Maremma these two seaside locations are surrounded by pine-wood of the Maremma natural Park. Thanks to the qualities of waters and beaches the area has received the European Blue Flag since the year 2005. Here the tourist can choose between relaxing and sunbathing in one of the numerous equipped bathing establishments, or practicising water sports such as sail, kitesurf, water scooter... Otherwise you can go trekking on foot or riding in Maremma. One and half hour drive will take you to Monte Argentario, a peninsula, connected to the coast of the Maremma by three strips of land, which form two lagoons, The area has a nature reserve and some relatively unspoilt beaches, such as La Feniglia, a big, wide sandy beach of dunes of about 7 kilometres. It is one of the most famous beaches in the area because of its beauty and because it is suitable for families. The water is crystal clear and the presence of Mediterranean pinewoods is a plus. The two main villages of Monte Argentario are the picturesque Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole. From there you have easy access to Giglio, Giannutri and Montecristo, all islands of the Tuscan Archipelago.
Several thermal baths are within easy reach of the cottage. The hot springs at Saturnia are about half an hour by car. Bagno Vignoni with its stunning pool with hot springs in the main square is 42 kilometers away. Bagni San Filippo is also around 40 kilometers away.
Montalcino famous for its Brunello red wine is one hour away by car, while you need one and half hour to reach Siena. A two and half hour drive will lead you to Rome and Florence. Otherwise you can get a fast train to Rome from Grosseto.
