Overview
Farmhouse -
4 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Roccalbegna, Province of Grosseto, Tuscany
Podere Bellavista is a classic stone farmhouse restored in 2005 using traditional materials (cotto floors, chestnut timber ceilings). It is a perfect spot for birders and nature lovers, set in its own 11.6 hectares of organic farmland it overlooks the lovely Trasubbino valley in a beautiful rural setting in the Maremma hills. There is an abundance of wild flowers, butterflies and bees, and the huge garden is planted with lavender, rosemary, and other scented plants, as well as fruit trees (make your own jam!) and 5 baby olive trees. There is a hand-built stone barbecue overlooking the valley next to the 6x12m pool.

The setting is perfect for a peaceful holiday away from it all, but is in easy striking distance of the major attractions of Saturnia, Siena, Pienza, Montalcino, Grosseto, the sea including protected beaches, Monte Argentario...

Interaction with guests
I will meet you at the local garage to take you to the house, as it's a little bit hard to find first time around. Myself and my partner live 5km away and are always on call to help or advise. We come twice a week for pool maintenance, unless you want more, and are happy to leave you in peace to enjoy your holiday, or to take care of you if that's what you prefer.

A lovely characteristic Tuscan farmhouse hidden in the depths of the countryside yet close enough to small villages, such as Roccalbegna, and towns to provide all that you need for a truly special holiday. The house is large and spacious and can comfortably accommodate 8...More

About the neighbourhood
The province of Grosseto has a growing reputation for rural holidays, a rare uncontaminated environment and unspoiled towns. While parts of it are 'typically Tuscan' others are less cultivated and appeal to nature lovers, birders, hikers as well as anyone looking for a great holiday in a beautiful place. The hills to the southwest of Monte Amiata provide wonderful wine (Morellino di Scansano and Monte Cucco), famous Pecorino cheese and excellent olive oil is made here, the wild boar is wonderful.
Getting around
You'll need a car. Guests normally hire them at the airport. A 4x4 is not strictly necessary but you'd be better of with a vehicle with decent clearance!

How to get there
Airport: Pisa: 180.0 km
Railway: Grosseto: 45.0 km

You can fly to either Pisa, Florence or Rome, but Pisa is easiest. You'll definitely need a car. A 4x4 is not strictly necessary but aim for decent road clearance!
