Grosseto farmhouse description

Set in the middle of a centuries-old pine wood, this house is ideal for a family stay. Situated 8 km north of Grosseto, 1 hour from Siena, 1.5 hours from Rome, 2 hours from Florence and only a 20-minute drive from the coast, this property is an excellent starting point for cultural visits and days at the beach. The nearby village of Braccagni (2 km) has some groceries and a supermarket, a bakery and a butcher.

Built in 1894 this house is a spacious ex-granary and part of a group of farm buildings. Fully restored in 2003 it is now a home suitable for a group of 9 to 11 people. The detached house is some metres distant from the main building of the estate where the property owner lives. The interiour is simple and functional. 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 equipped with umbrellas, sunbeds and deck chairs. The short end of the pool has convenient stairs for climbing in, allowing children to enter the water one step at a time. Also the owner (approx. 4 people) might use the pool.

THE LAYOUT OF THE HOUSE

In the entrance room a small and well equipped kitchenette is a practical asset for the preparation of outdoor meals and barbecues - the pergola equipped for al fresco dining is just in front of the entrance room. On the upper floor you will find a very large living room with ceiling fans and several comfortable sofas. The living room leads to two double bedrooms with en suite bathroom each (one with bathtub, the other with bathtub and shower cabin), a twin and a triple bedroom and a third bathroom (bathtub). Furthermore there is a small walk-through room located in front of the kitchen with bunk beds (those additional beds are perfect for two children). The kitchen has a fireplace at a waist level and 12 people can be seated comfortably around the large kitchen table.

Ground floor:
1 entrance room with kitchenette for barbecues leading onto the pergola for al fresco dining
First floor:
1 living room
1 open-plan kitchen
2 double bedrooms
1 twin bedroom
1 triple bedroom
1 walk-through room with bunk beds (suitable for 2 children)

ABOUT THE REGION

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. 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 beautiful 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.

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.

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.

Golf: the famous Punta Ala Golf course is only a 45-minute drive away and has 18 holes, par 72.

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.
