About Charles Fryer
My wife and I rescued this farm building and completely rebuilt it, making use of local stone and marble, transforming it into a comfortable and elegant home, suitable for all seasons.
Charles Fryer purchased this Villa in 1988
Why Charles Fryer chose Gavorrano
The extensive grounds of one hectare provide peace for the house, and relaxation for guests, with a swimming pool, plenty of space, in a garden that is enclosed by a fence on three sides and a ditch and levee on the fourth side, along a stream. Long walks or bicycle rides are possible along the top of the levee. The village of Bagno di Gavorrano, just 1 km away, has most facilities that could be needed -- several restaurants, supermarket, bars and shops, weekly open market, banks, two bakeries, etc. The seaside is an easy drive 15 minutes away.
What makes this Villa unique
Peace, quiet, privacy and lots of space. Gardens and swimming pool are for sole use of residents in the house.

Villa Pietraserena is a beautiful home and provided us with a fantastic base to explore the surrounding area. After busy days it was wonderful to come back to such a tranquil place to recover.
Many thanks for your kind words about Villa Pietraserena. I hope you will be able to come back again next year.
Lovely spacious house and grounds and the pool was fantastic
We shared this property with friends for two weeks and had a fantastic time. The house and grounds and plenty big enough so we all could have our own space and all be all together. The Pizza oven is great and the pool was very well looked after and a great size so you could actually swim in it. Charles the owner was very warm and answered questions quickly and made sure we had everything to make it a comfortable stay. The Location is also very beautiful and the house is only 15 min drive to sandy beaches and 5 min drive to the local village where there are shops and plenty of restaurants. We would highly recommend this property And are thinking of returning next year.
Beautiful villa in large garden full of trees with amazing swimming pool. Strongly recommend!
We had really great stay in villa Pietraserena, enjoyed a lot. Its a lovely place, the swimming pool is just huge and the whole garden extremely large. Villa itself is very comfortable, clean, you will find in everything you need for pleasant holidays. The host Tatiana is very nice person and helped us with everything we needed. We were two families with two kids and we all had enough comfort. We enjoyed specially grilling evenings with excelent Tuscany wine.. Gavorrano is small and calm village which gave us everything needed, supermarket is 2 mins by car, there are also some restaurants or pizzerias 10 mins by walk. Also we visited so many beautiul places in Tuscany, Sienna, Volterra, San Gimignano, Montalcino - most of places from 1 to 1 and half hour drive. Nearest beaches are 15 mins by car, we loved most Marrema beaches in natural park. But one week was just not long enough, we would love to stay longer:-)
Delighted to hear the two families and the kids enjoyed their stay so much. You certainly managed to pack in a lot during your one week. You managed to combine exploring Tuscany with dining at the local restaurants and with relaxing around the pool and in the garden. There's much more to do and see, so come back next year to this south-west corner of Tuscany called Maremma!
Beautiful house and swimming pool
What a beautiful house! We stayed here in late July, and had a wonderful time exploring the area and relaxing in the gorgeous swimming pool. There is a lovely big garden tended by the friendly Enzo. Tatiana is also really friendly and helpful! The house feels really spacious and the decoration is lovely. We booked a trip to Elba island which is beautiful and also visited Cala Violina. We celebrated our anniversary at a restaurant in Massa Maritima and enjoyed beautiful views. A very memorable stay, thank you!
Delighted that your stay was so enjoyable! You also found by yourself some of the jewels of south-west Tuscany. Your enjoyment is our reward!
Très belle propriété construite avec de beaux matériaux, dans une région magnifique où l'ennui est absolument proscrit; à proximité de la mer, et surtout de très belles villes et villages toscans d'un grand intérêt. S'y ajoutent des Parcs Naturels et de nombreux site archéologiques de grands intérêts.
La proximité de la maison avec le village de Bagno-di-Gavorano à 300 m est très pratique au quotidien ( Pharmacie, supermarché, restaurant, coiffeurs, Poste, banques, Station service etc...) ajouté au fait que cette petite ville est très festive tous les soirs.
Le parc qui comporte beaucoup de fleurs et d'arbres variés est très soigné et forme un très bel écrin à une grande piscine bien entretenue.
Nous avons été fort bien accueillis - comme très souvent en Italie - même si notre hôtesse ne parlait ni français, ni anglais : à noter que les informations de la notice adressée par internet, pour localiser la maison, étaient excellentes et c'est important lorsqu'on arrive épuisés après un long voyage en voiture.
Seul point désagréable, la machine à laver le linge, inutilisable et surtout qui n'évacuait pas l'eau et se remplissait tous les jours. Cela a transformé dés le premier jour, la cuisine en seconde piscine : il a fallu la vidanger tous les jours pour éviter que cela ne recommence..C'est à voir avec un plombier d'urgence !
En conclusions, d'une manière générale un séjour très agréable dans une belle propriété, bien placée dans une superbe région et où l'on a envie de revenir...
Cher M. La Burthe,
Je vous remercie des bels paroles sur Villa Pietraserena. La presence de votre famille ha eté aussi pour nous un plaisir.
Je m'excuse de la machine a laver. Un plombier est vennu, mais sans resolver le problème. Maintenant un deuxieme plombier ha trouvé une valve bloccé et la remplacer, alors tout va bien . Je regrette que vous avez eu cette disturbance. J'espère que touts les attractions de Bagno di Gavorrano ont compensé.
Salutations, et venez de nouveau le prochaine année!
There are many medieval hill towns in the hills not far from Bagno di Gavoranno, including Gavorrano Alto, Massa Marittima, Scarlino, Montemassa and so on, each worth exploration and each have a selection of restaurants and tourist sights. Massa Marittima is a little known jewel, with a magnificent main square and cathedral, and a fascinating castle. A little further are the towns famous for their collection of art, best of all Siena some 100 km distant.
