Casale degli Ulivi is a typical Tuscan farmhouse (a "casale") set in Maremma, one of the most renowned areas in Tuscany for its mild weather, the fair sea, its little hills where the wines "Morellino di Scansano" and many others are produced.
The Casale was built with ancient stones, wood and wrought iron, as well as its decorated gate and the wide stony access path, leading to the villa, the swimming pool and the park with the football pitch as well. The park is adorned with olive trees (more than 100!) and typical plants belonging to the Mediterranean scrub.Porticoes with elegant table and chairs surround the whole villa, whose entrances are 2: one on the ground floor, the secondary one allows the direct access to the suite on the first floor.The infinity pool is in front of the villa and next to the useful and well equipped gazebo, used as relax area.Just next to one of the sides of the property is an area with barbecue and a stony pizza oven.
Inside the park, the property owner lives in a small isolated dependance about 20 m away from the villa, to guarantee a prompt service to guests but at the same time enough privacy. The whole property is surrounded by a high hedge, and the owner's dog (German Shepherd) is kept safe in a separate paddock in the property area, close to the park entrance.
The property can host up to 8 people. On request and for an extra price, it is possible to open some other beds in order to reach 12 as total number of guests. The beds that can be opened are: a double sofa bed (located in a locked bedroom on the ground floor); a single bed (the one located in the two level bedroom); a single sofa bed (located in the suite). Ground floor: it is composed by a hall with a storage closet, and a wide area with a double living room: a large arch made with bricks separates the living room - relax area from the dining room.The first one has 3 comfortable sofas and a armchair surrounding an ancient stony fireplace, a 50'' flat TV, and elegant woody furniture. On one side of the living room is a staircase leading to a loft with another armchair, perfect for listening to music or reading a book...The dining room has a large library and a table for 10-12 people. The kitchen, well equipped, spacious, leads to a storage room. From the door on the back you can reach the external covered portico equipped with table for 10-12 people and a flat TV (in other words, a small external dining room).
