Owner's description: Description: A traditional estate on the southern Tuscan coast this property lies in an area called Maremma, a lesser known and therefore all the more captivating part of Tuscany, 25 km inland from the coast, close to the peninsula Monte Argentario. Beyond the borders of the estate you will discover an area rich in cultural landmarks, softly rolling landscape, good food and excellent wine, combining the charms of the Tuscan lifestyle with joys of an unspoilt coast. this property is a working farm, the 120 acres estate mainly produces grain and extra virgin olive oil, which can be bought on the premises. The center of the estate is marked by the main house dating from the 18th century. The owner spends most of her time here, sharing the simplicity of country life w...Owner's description: Description: A traditional estate on the southern Tuscan coast this property lies in an area called Maremma, a lesser known and therefore all the more captivating part of Tuscany, 25 km inland from the coast, close to the peninsula Monte Argentario. Beyond the borders of the estate you will discover an area rich in cultural landmarks, softly rolling landscape, good food and excellent wine, combining the charms of the Tuscan lifestyle with joys of an unspoilt coast. this property is a working farm, the 120 acres estate mainly produces grain and extra virgin olive oil, which can be bought on the premises. The center of the estate is marked by the main house dating from the 18th century. The owner spends most of her time here, sharing the simplicity of country life with her children and grand-children during the summer months. The owner and a couple working on the estate live in the same building. The large pool measuring 12 x 6 m is located in a beautiful part of the garden of the estate, with a view over a seemingly endless landscape of rolling hills, utterly unspoilt, spotted with cypress trees and farmhouses here and there. Two very charming apartments sleeping 4 and 5, with a terrace for al fresco meals, have been restored in the main house. About the region The village The closest village is Manciano, at 9 km from the estate. Manciano is a typically Tuscan fortified village where you will enjoy your daily shopping. You will find everything you need: food shops, supermarket, bank, post office, newsagent, pharmacy as well as the local bar for your daily cappuccino. Within close driving distance a number of hilltop villages - closest are Magliano and the trendy Capalbio - offer charming alternatives for the daily shopping and stopovers at the local bar. The beaches A beach of fine sand stretches along the coast. The water is clean and ususally warm enough to swim in from mid-may to October. You can hire a boat to visit the hidden creeks of the islands Giglio and Giannutri. Italian beach-life is usually organised through beach clubs, where you can rent a cabin, a parasol and sunbeds by the day or the week as well as have drinks and snacks at the bar of the stabilimento. This system turns out to be very convenient if you have small children. Mostly you can just show up at the club with no reservation. You will find a list of the beach clubs in the area we recommend. The islands and hiring a boat In Porto Santo Stefano at half an hour's drive from this property, you can hire a motor boat with a 'captain' which will take you to the islands of Giglio and Giannutri off the Tuscan coast. The attraction of such an expedition lies not only in the trip itself. Giglio has a charming main village and castle, and many creeks hidden between the cliffs which can only be reached by boat. Giannutri, its bare coastline dominated by ruins of a Roman villa overlooking the sea recalls some of the Greek islands, while deep-sea divers can look for sunken Roman galeons on the sea bed. The peninsula of Monte Argentario The peninsula of Monte Argentario deserves a mention, even though it is not quite clear under which heading it should be included. Cliffs above the sea, archeological excavations, mediterranean macchia with a large number of self-propagating wild flowers, and jet-set holiday resorts such as Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole all come toghether here. On the way lies the town of Orbetello, charming and of historical interest. Sovana, Sorano and Pitigliano These three towns stand close to each other at about 1 hours drive from this property. Sovana is often considered the most interesting spot of southern Tuscany, boasting a magnificent Etruscan necropolis and 2 remarkable Romanic churches. Pitigliano is a medieval town with a dramatic location, interestingly enough with a jewish quarter and also known for the white wine produced there, Bianco di Pitigliano. Nature While staying at Cavaliere you should not miss visiting the 'Parco Regionale della Maremma', also known as the 'Parco dell'Uccellina'. It is a regional park of rare beauty with walks through high and lofty pine forests towards hidden creeks, past the romantic ruins of fortified watch-towers and the abbey of San Rabano, built by monks who arrived from Rhodes in the 10th century. A large variety of medittarenean flora and fauna as well as spectacular views of an untouched landscape will make this visit unforgettable. The animals you can see are deer, wild boar, roe-buck as well as porcupines, foxes, stone martens and badgers. Closer to the shore you will come accross birds such as wild ducks, whistling ducks and herons. The Tarot-Garden of Niki de Saint-Phalle On one of the hills not far from this property the famous French artist built her 'Jardin des Tarots', twenty two giant sculpures in ceramic and coloured glass inspired by the figures of the magic tarot cards. The Spas Only 20 km from this property is the famoMore
