Grosseto farmhouse description

Built in 1894 this house is a spacious ex-granary and part of a group of farm buildings. Set in the middle of a centuries-old pine wood, the granary it is now fully restored and transformed into a comfortable and well-equipped home. The detached house can accommodate a groupf of 9 to 11 people. There are a very large living room with several sofas, a cosy country kitchen with open fireplace, 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Some metres distant there is the main building of the estate, where the property owner lives. A charming garden belongs to the granery, and a spacious well furnished patio with shadow roof overlooking the stretch of umbrella-pine trees makes it a relaxing and peaceful setting for enjoying a meal outdoors. A little path behind the family chapel in the main garden leads through the pine wood to the pool (approx. 60 m distant) equipped with umbrellas, sun beds and deck chairs.

The beach and the sea: The closest beach (sandy beach) is in Castiglione della Pescaia a 20-minute drive from the estate. The water is clean and usually warm enough to swim in from mid-May to October. The sea is generally not rough. Italian beach-life is usually organised via beach clubs, where you can rent a cabin, a parasol and sunbeds by the day or the week as well as have drinks and snacks at the bar of the stabilimento. This is very convenient if you have small children. Often you can just show up at the club without a reservation, but in the months of July/August we recommend making a reservation in advance (please request when booking). Those looking for empty beaches will find them at Castiglione della Pescaia as well - some short stretches at the Castiglione coast are free beaches.

Sightseeing in the region: The breathtaking towns of Pitigliano, Sovana, Sorano, Manciano and the Medieval hilltop village Capalbio to the south-east, Massa Marittima to the north-west, just to name a few. To the south-east at a distance of approx. 90 km are the hot springs at Saturnia, with the famous sulphurous waters and the elegant spa with its beauty treatments.

The Argentario: a peninsula 40 km south of Grosseto famous for the Mediterranean macchia and the jet-set holiday resorts Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole.

Horseback riding: a tradition in Maremma. Ten minutes by car, there is a riding stable with Maremman-bred horses.

Nature: In the National Park 'Uccellina' marked footpaths will lead you through incredibly beautiful pine woods to hidden creeks, past romantic ruins of fortified watch-towers and the abbey of San Rabano, built by monks who arrived from Rhodes in the 10th century. The coastline of this national park is worth a visit - a beach of fine sand stretches along the coast. If you are looking for endless free beaches - this is a paradise.

Wine and food: just by driving around and scouting out the area you will inevitably bump into small traditional restaurants serving delicious local foods and prestigious wine: fresh vegetables, tender salads, ripe tomatoes, wild boar and game, pecorino - the local sheep cheese - and of course the excellent red wine Morellino di Scansano, which is gaining considerable attention from experts. The closest restaurant is 2 km from the house.
