This ancient farmhouse built into the Tuscan hills (350m above sea level) seems so far away from any civilization. The front looks out towards the medieval town of Sassetta on the hilltop opposite, only 3 km away. There are also magnificent views of the tranquil Val di Cornia all the way to Massa Marittima; on clear days you can even see Gavorrano, 70km away.
The farmhouse was made of solid stone in the early 1800s. It has been beautifully restored to provide all modern comfort whilst maintaining its original structure and charm. The traditional country house was carefully renovated with warm, natural stone-work, colourful plantings and gorgeous little additions, among them an antique bread oven, it is situated in a very picturesque countryside.
A boccia or beachball pitch was made in 2009: 18 x 8 m with fine sand
