The views on the drive along the narrow winding lane to reach it are just gorgeous and the pine tree-lined driveway impressive in itself. With its traditional stone-built buildings and setting, it probably comes close to what many of us imagine when we dream about a Tuscany holiday.
The villa and accompanying buildings occupy a restored 17th century hamlet and the owners describe the accommodation they have created there as, "the combination of living in very smart, spacious and luxury suites situated in a hundred and six hectare park surrounded by the extraordinary Maremma countryside".
Only fifteen kilometres away from the blue Mediterranean sea in the Gulf of Follonica, with two first class 18 hole golf courses located nearby: in Punta Ala and in Gavorrano Pelagone.
The hotel's restaurant, "Fior del Tesoro" offers a large range of Terrabianca Chianti wines.
All twenty suites offer deluxe beds, a bathroom with shower and telephone, air conditioning, private telephone, satellite TV, minibar, in-room safe, radio with CD player, and internet access.
Four of the superior suites have both a shower and Jacuzzi hydro massage bath tub. One of the suites is also suitable for disabled guests.
Meeting facilities - including the use of an additional private landscaped garden - are available for small conferences of up to twenty-two people.
