About the Property

Spacious apartment (90 m²), historic palace, own rooftop terrace, 2 bedrooms

Arranged in Tuscan- style, located in a 19th century house (in Italy: palace) on a quiet alleyway (no through traffic) in the historic district of Massa Marittima. The rooftop terrace (deck chair, table and chairs) can only be reached through this apartment and offers a vast view over the idyllic roof landscape down to the sea and will be perfect for sunbathing, feasting and relaxing. Also from inside the bedrooms you will enjoy a gorgeous view of the historic city wall and the hilly landscape leading down to the coast. The comfortably arranged apartment (90 m²) has a spacious living room/kitchen (dishwasher), a comfortable living and dining room with a wide round arch, 2 bedrooms, a modern bathroom and a separate WC. The apartment was carefully and stylishly modernized. The original cotto flooring, the high set wooden beam ceilings (in all rooms), the historic ceiling paintings and variety of antiques add a special charming touch.

Ideal location during every season: The apartment is an ideal starting point for Tuscan- explorations during every season: the gentle, sunny winter, the blossoming spring, the summer ideal for swimming, the warm, aroma rich fall. No matter if your are mostly interested in the culture, in taking a relaxing bath, in photographing the landscape’s beauty or being tempted by the local culinary specialties: you will feel at home while staying at our comfortable and tastefully arranged apartment. There are heating options available for the winter. Especially appealing is having a glass of wine on the rooftop terrace while enjoying a view of the sunset or having dinner at the atmosphere-rich cathedral square and enjoying the Tuscan- specialties. Also historically known places are easily reachable for one day trips due to the good highway connections. For example, Siena (60km), Florence (120 km) or Pisa (100 km). Tips on parking options are displayed at the apartment.

Water and culture for adults and children: You are within 20 minutes of the sea. The light sand beaches with kilometer long pine groves belong to the most beautiful ones in all of Tuscany due to their vast extent and the picturesque bays and they are also not too overcrowded (boat rental).The very clean sea called Lago Accesa (8 km) is an alternative to the sea. Different nature parks extend you an invitation to go hiking and on exploration tours (hiking guides in bookcase). Children will be attracted to the stork and turtle park on site. For those interested in art and culture, the apartment will serve as a starting point for the exploration of Etruscan places(Vetulonia, Populonia, Roselle and Saturnia).On site and in the nearby surroundings you will find appealing cultural offers for trips: music events at old churches and monasteries, art and crafts exhibitions, walkable ore mines, traditional oil presses, historic wine cellars, local culinary festivals, antiques markets, traditional donkey and horse races.(info map on site

Enjoy wine in a pinturesque landscape: Drive along the 'Strada del Vino' and taste (and buy) wine and olive oil directly from the farmers. Of special interest for wine lovers is the small city of Montalcino with its gorgeous old city district. It is the origin of one of Italy’s best wines: 'Brunello di Montalcino', which is matured in oak barrels and can be tasted everywhere on site and in the surroundings. You might combine a dégustation with a walk, a several hour hiking tour or a bicycle tour through Maremma's original landscape (rides). A special attraction are the hot water springs of Saturnia and Petriolo (bathing options). Massa Marittima is, due to its central location, best suitable for restful purposes and is located near to the sea and serves as a starting point for the sightseeing of famous Tuscan cities. There is also the possibility to explore many small and appealing places in the nearby surroundings, where you will run into few tourists.

Car: Recommended

Massa Marittima is a special, appealing village rich in medieval and gothic influence located in the Tuscan hilly landscape nearby the sea (18 km). When you step outside the house you get the feeling of being part of the cast in a film set in the Middle Ages. Despite its quiet location it offers many cultural attractions (museums, etc.), appealing shops (boutiques, art and antiques). You can enjoy a typical local dinner for a moderate price or a pizza on the plaza (no traffic, children can romp around.) Whether it be the appealing city lights on the facade of the famous cathedral or the view when looking at the medieval palace, you will understand why this spot is mentioned in many travel guides as one of the most beautiful places in all of Tuscany. And yet Massa Maritima is not an overcrowded place, it has kept the charm of a typical Italian small city and you can easily travel through it (stroll around, have ice cream, etc.).

Golf: Two of Italy´s most gorgeous and exclusive golf courses are located near Massa Marittima ('Golf club Toscana' and 'Golf club Punta Ala'). The 18- hole courses are playable throughout the whole year and are located in the middle of vineyards and the olive groves. They are specially designed with small lakes, waterfalls and with typical plants from the south. The courses are just 10 and 20 km away and also offer a yacht and tennis club. Here you can connect a special, golf experience with a spa and culture vacation in an ideal fashion.

Ski: Monte Amiata (1.740 above sea level) is located 60km away from Massa Marittima, is of volcanic origin and offers ski options from the winter to spring. The volcano has remained inactive for nearly 2000 years, hot springs and geysers are a sign of its volcanic background and are used to gain geothermal energy. The exuberant plant life (thick chestnut and beech forests) and diverse wildlife (eagles, hawks..) makes it worthwhile to take a walk during any season. Monte Amiata attracts people during the springtime due to its blossoming flowers, its hillside remains pleasantly cool during the summer and in fall, it becomes attractive due to the abundance of mushrooms. The hiking paths head mainly into the forest region, but also lead into the nearby 19th century mines and through medieval towns that have come into existence mostly located along Via Cassia (such as Abbadia San Salvatore, Piancastagnaio...)
