Beautiful apartments with stunning postcard views and a pool\whirpool dominating the valley. Casual luxury within Tuscan hills and at the heart of Tuscan winemaking.

The space

Wonderfully located and fully furnished apartments with stunning views of tuscan hills.
Private hillside pool and whirpool (summer only) that dominate the valley. Private lake and incredible trails in the woods. Charme and relax guaranteed.

15 minutes from the sea-side and a step away from top Italian cuisine and wine tasting opportunities, apartment Veronica and apartment Alex are private small and romantic locations that lie in my property, next to the main villa where me and my family live most of the year. The views here are simply stunning, the air is calm and the only noise you will hear could be a deer at night getting closer to get a drink by our lake. I work in the property myself, and I have done all the best into turning this property into a little gem inside the tuscan hills, in an area called Alta Maremma. We have our crops, our vineyards and our own farm animals.

Both apartments have incredible views and a private external gazebo\patio. Air conditioning, dishwasher, coffee machine, electric heating are standard.
Both apartments have a living room with a kitchen corner and a sofa that turns into a double bed, a main bedroom and a bathroom with a shower. Table is for four. External table for four too. Kitchens have a four piece gas stove, a dishwasher and a small electric oven. Washing machine is available at the pool house. We supply linens and towels for a party of four. Extra towels and pool towels should be brought by you. Our rooms are non-smoking but you can enjoy your cigar on your private patio, so don’t worry.

Our location is very strategic, since we lie between the sea and the inner hills of the Tuscan Maremma. Some of the things you could do within a 15 minute drive (yes, a car is needed, we are not in NY) are:
dine with some of the best seafood in Italy in San Vincenzo, where a couple of starred Michelin restaurants lie just on the beaches, making dining a most romantic and wonderful experience.
dine in many different restaurants (from luxury to rural), where you can taste specialties like wild - hog and tortelli maremmani.
go wine tasting and get the chance to try His-Majesty-The -King-Of-All-Wines Sassicaia, mentioned in a dozen of Hollywood films. The podere of San Guido where Sassicaia is Made is only 12 km away.
visit Sassetta, our nearby medieval town with it’s alleys and friendly people, and why not visit just some 4 or 5 medieval towns just a jump away.
go for some sunbathing on our wonderful beaches including Baratti, a small and beautiful gulf surrounded by Sea Pines and dominated by the town of Populonia, dating seven centuries before Christ.

Not enough? Jump in your car and drive:
40 minutes to get to Livorno
30 minutes + ferry to get to Elba island, best place in Italy for scuba diving and snorkeling
1 hour to enjoy Pisa
1 hour for Siena
1 1\2 hour for Florence
many other places to see and things to do, as summer time (especially) livens up with Town Festivals all over the place

Don’t want to move?
enjoy our private property trails to go hiking and pick up some mushrooms (avoid the toxic ones though...)or stop and relax by our waterfalls
dive in our pool, and get a drink from our poolside house
pick up some of our crops by yourself, such as natural zucchini, eggplants, tomatoes, pepperoni, basil, etc... and start cooking
read a book in 3D scenery
enjoy sunset by our lake or take a walk in our vineyards

It will be my pleasure to have you as a guest, because the first time I saw this place it kidnapped me from Milan and I started to restore it. Sharing my efforts with other people and seeing them happy and enjoying a wonderful time in Tuscany is the best I can ask for.

Salvatore was a great host and provided us with a wealth of tips regarding local points of interest. The farm was absolutely stunning and the wine from their vineyards was delicious as well. It also had without a doubt the best view from our patio that I've ever seen!

My wife and I had a great stay at apartment Alex. We wanted a quite and relaxing break for our honeymoon and that is exactly what we got. Salvatore provided good communication prior to our visit and gave us good directions to the apartment and good recommends for restaurants and places to go. Salvatore was the perfect host and gave us a good induction to the apartment and surrounding grounds. We were able to get around very easily with a car when we wanted to see the surrounding areas, and we felt very relaxed by the pool or in our apartment on days we stayed mostly at the venue. I would not hesitate to recommend Salvatore as a host and I would defiantly stay here again if we were in the Tuscany region in the future.

This place is incredible & was the highlight of our two-week stay in Italy. The grounds are beautiful and we loved exploring the lake, vineyards and watching the goats play in the field every day. The pool area is stunning and perfect for lazy days. The apartment had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Salvatore is the perfect host and made us feel extremely welcome. We are looking forward to returning in the future.

I cannot say enough good things about this place - we loved our stay here! The grounds are absolutely stunning - perfect for swimming, walking or simply just reading a book on the rock by the side of the lake, and the view is like something from a Tuscan postcard. The apartment itself was charming and very well equipped and the bed was quite possibly one of the comfiest I've slept in! There are a number of quaint medieval towns to explore nearby and Salvatore gave us some fantastic restaurant recommendations. Salvatore was a wonderful host and the perfect gentleman. We would love to come back and cannot recommend this place more highly for those looking for the perfect, authentic Tuscany experience. Thank you again Salvatore.

We just had the most amazing 5 days at Salvatore's apartments. I have already recommended we go back with some friends! The scenery is just breathtaking. The properties are lovely, cosy and spotless! The area is incredible with LOADS to go and see. It rained for 4 of the 5 days we were there and we still had a wonderful time! The pool is like something from a film set. The BBQ area is fabulous. The sound of the goats running around the field next door on a morning was so sweet! We will definitely be back! Thank you Salvatore!

Salvatore was very helpful; meeting us to guide us down to the apartment (you won't find it on your own!) He showed us round and made us feel extremely welcome - it's a very serene location (as well as being very remote - stock up before arriving if you want a variety of food items). The place is beautiful, quiet and every bit as described on the advert - would recommend to anyone who wants to get away from it all and completely relax Thank you Salvatore for your hospitality. Sincerely Ben

A very enjoyable stay. Salvatore and his family were very friendly and I would recommend this place to anyone looking to experience rustic tuscany. Accommodation was clean and attractive. Surrounding area and scenery was beautiful and just what we were looking for.
