Vacation villa in Maremma countryside, between Grosseto and Campagnatico. Sleeps 16+8, swimming pool, wide garden, air conditioning, Internet connection, whirlpool. Archaeological sites, natural parks, riding stable, golf club and beaches within a few kilometers.
The villa is about 20 kilometers from the beaches of Maremma, in the municipality of Grosseto, the most important town in south-western Tuscany.
The town, which was founded in an area rich in Etruscan and Roman settlements, is mentioned for the first time in a document dated 803. After having been under Siena domination for several centuries, in 1559, with the peace of Cateau Cambrésis, Grosseto was annexed to the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. It is in this period that the Medici family commissioned the building of the walls that surround Grosseto historic center still today.
At present the municipality of Grosseto falls into four protected areas: the north-western part falls into Diaccia Botrona Nature Reserve, the south-western part in Maremma Natural Park, and the group of small islands called Formiche di Grosseto fall into Tuscan Archipelago National Park and the Cetacean Sanctuary.
The typical Maremma country house is a building divided into various apartments furnished in country style and set in a fully-fenced 6,000-square-meter estate scattered with century-old long-stemmed trees.
In the garden that surrounds the villa are a table for having meals in the open air and the private swimming pool (5x15 m; depth: 0.30-1.35 m). The swimming pool is equipped with some underwater sun loungers and a night lighting system. The stereo system by the pool side plays background music.
In proximity to the villa are several archaeological sites, a golf club and a riding stable. Maremma Natural Park, Ombrone Fluvial Park and the seaside resorts along the coast are easily reached by car.
During the summer a keeper keeps the swimming pool clean and takes care of the garden without interfering with the guests' privacy and the exclusiveness in the use of the pool. Guests can contact him in case of need.
The complex composes of a two-story building divided into three apartments and a fourth apartment situated in an independent buiding.
