Map

Tucked away in a magical corner of Southern Tuscany, it is perched on top of a cliff which overlooks the sea, not far from sites of historical interest. The tower is surrounded by the authentic natural wonders of the Maremma Natural Park.

Today, more than ever, the Maremma is the perfect choice for the romantic traveller. It offers a mixture of ancient civilizations, enduring local traditions, lush landscapes and numerous nature reserves. All of this is accompanied by an outstanding culinary and wine-making tradition.

Each visit to the Maremma is a new experience with new discoveries. There are long stretches of fine sandy beaches surrounded by lush pine forests, tiny sweetly-named coves and crystal-clear water, deserted beaches against natural havens, uncontaminated islands in an enchanted sea, villages and castles. The gentle landscape is brimming with history and natural wonders.

The region offers a special and inviting atmosphere for all visitors at any time of the year. The coast has much to offer tourists with modern ports and professionally organized scuba diving schools that are attended by diving enthusiasts throughout the year. Traditional local skills in the area have not been forgotten such as expert maestri d'ascia (boat builders).

Active guests can explore, go trekking, mountain bike riding and exhilarating excursions on horseback in the area.

Few other parts of Italy have so many charming villages that are so quick and easy to reach from the coast. Often these villages have their origins in the Etruscan or Roman civilizations or are veritable gems of Medieval architecture.

The region is extraordinarily rich culinary tradition with both sea and inland specialties, accompanied by the Mediterranean aroma of its olive oil and famed wines.

The Maremma is one of the most beautiful and magical sites in Tuscany. Journeying through it one feels nature, creativity and the essence of the Maremma itself all around - The essence of a land which like only a few others is alive with testimonies of the Etruscan civilization and where parishes and villages still retain the flavour of medieval art.

Maremma means being together with people who are always welcoming and ready to socialize, involving the travellers in a unique and always surprising atmosphere.

One of the most prized golf courses in Tuscany is to be found on this extraordinarily attractive soil. You can demonstrate your skill while trying not to have your attention diverted by the beauties surrounding the fairways!
