ZOLFERATE

Roccalbegna Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Three beautifully appointed holiday homes,1 bedroom, stunning location, garden

Podere Sant'Angelo offers three traditional Tuscan holiday homes. All three are tastefully furnished and offer comfortable indoor and outdoor living.

Each holiday home has one bedroom with double bed and fold down single. The living room/kitchen corner of each residence has a fold down double sofa bed.

Each kitchen comes with traditional Tuscan fittings and is fully equipped with utensils and crockery.

Each residence has its own bathroom with walk in shower and toilet facilities.

The property is located in a large tended garden full of aromatic mediterranean plants.

There are spectacular views down the Albegna valley to the coast and up the valley to Monte Labbro.

The picturesque village of Roccalbegna is a ten minute drive away, the hot springs of Saturnia with its spa hotel and 18 hole golf course are 20 minutes away.

It's a 75 minute drive down to the beaches of Castiglione della Pescaia and Marina di Grosseto. The Etruscan remains of Sovana and Pitigliano are 30 minutes away.

The area boasts numerous nature reserves and is excellent for walking.

Within easy reach of Monte Amiata, also Siena, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Florence, Rome.

The English owner is on hand to help, advise and make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Saturnia: The hot sulfurous waters of Saturnia have been famous since Etruscan times. There are two ways of taking the waters: the 'Terme' spa hotel which offers several pools, refreshment facilities and an extensive range of spa treatments or the open air, free entry waterfall down from the village. The springs are a 20 minute drive from the apartments. An 18 hole course is open to the public at the Terme di Saturnia Hotel.

The coast & nature reserves: The southern Tuscan coastline offers some of the most pristine bathing in Italy. Castiglione della Pescaia has consistently been awarded the top 'clean beach' award by the EU. If you tire of the 'ombrellone' of Castiglione and Marina di Grosseto head for the beach in the 'Parco Naturale di Maremma' for kilometre after kilometre of golden sand without an 'ombrellone' in sight and few people even in August (just over an hour's drive away).

The limestone cliffs of the WWF's Rocconi reserve are visible from the apartments. This is one of the WWF's largest reserves in Italy. It is home to several rare species of birds. A small fee is charged for entry. At certain times of year night visits are possible. Visit the 'Parco faunistico di Monte Labbro' to see the original wildlife of the area including wolves.

Classical Tuscany: San Gimingnano, Siena and Florence are within easy reach, as are the hill top villages of Montalcino, Montepulciano and Pienza. Day trips to Rome are possible too.

Registered with the Tuscan Regional Tourist Board.

We've had a lovely two weeks putzing about the countryside and reading in the garden. Highly recommend the Etruscan remains around Sovana as well as a visit to the bookbinder in town.
Thank you so much for your hospitality, great advice - and for the lemons! We shall be recommending Zolferate to our friends and relations.

Kath and I have just had a really great week. Accommodation is very good, views superb and your advice and guidance great! The sausages from the local butcher are great - but try the 'porchetta' - it's really very good. Food has been excellent from the local restaurants as has the wine! Would recommend a trip to Siena - well worth the visit.
A really great time, Ian and Kathleen, UK

A rural gem of southern Tuscany

  • 5 of 5
Located in a beautiful, quiet location Zolferate is a wonderful holiday home. Tastefully decorated with a sheltered terrace and a fragrant garden full of indigenous plants. Graham is a great host who keeps a lot of helpful tips on the area available. We have already recommended the house. The perfect base for exploring southern Tuscany.

Relaxed country living on a Tuscan hillside.

  • 5 of 5
This cottage surpassed it's descriptions. It is a well equipped and appointed gem nestled in the Tuscan hills beside sheep farms with spectacular views. This is obviously a property run with care and the owner who lives in another house on the property is gracious and helpful with advise about the area. For the couple or small family looking to get away from the noise and clutter of urban life, this is the place!
It is an easy drive ( by Tuscan standards-remember hills and curves ) to Siena and other towns in the region. Tuscan cuisine is as close as the Grotto in Roccalbegna, the closest town.
We would go back yearly if we could afford the travel. I would recommend this to anyone. Top marks on our Italian tour.

Maremma is the name given to the southernmost area of Tuscany. The rolling hills of this area are famous for their unspoilt natural beauty.

Typical local products are Pecorino cheese, olive oil and the local wines Morellino di Scansano and Montecucco. This is a great place to experience a rural way of life that has changed little for hundreds of years.

Roccalbegna was built by the Republic of Siena as its southern outpost over 500 years ago and it's changed very little since then. It offers the following services: an exceptional trattoria / pizzeria, a bar, a butchers, a couple of well-stocked general grocers, a bank, a post office and a chemists. There's a mini-market on Monday mornings.

'Roccalbegna is one of the finest villages in southern Tuscany', The Rough Guide to Tuscany and Umbria, April 2003.

Other Activities: swimming - 20 minutes to a pool, a 75 minute drive to the coast.
