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.

Wer Urlaub in einer tollen Landschaft mit super Aussicht, ruhiger Lage und fern ab der nächsten Straßen verbingen möchte ist hier richtig! Wir verbrachten zwei Wochen im Capitorio, das uns durch seine rustikale Atmosphäre, die stil- und liebevolle Einrichtung, die Terrasse mit grandiosem Weitblick (Sonnenuntergang, je nach Sichtverhältnissen Blick bis aufs Meer bzw. in die Berge) und das lavendelduftende blüteneiche Umfeld mit verschiedenen Sitzplätzen sehr gut gefallen hat. Alles war sehr sauber und mit Graham, dem Besitzer, stand uns jederzeit ein supernetter multilingualer Ansprechpartner zur Verfügung, der uns jede Menge Tipps für lohnende Ausflüge geben konnte. Sehr empfehlenswert!!!

Wir haben ca. 2 Wochen in der Ferienwohnung Capitorio verbracht. Unsere Ansprüche/Erwartungen nach Ruhe, Natur, aber auch an die (liebevoll eingerichtete und urgemütliche) Ferienwohnung sowie d. Anwesen selbst wurden in jeder Hinsicht erfüllt und entsprachen exakt den Beschreibungen des Vermieters Graham. Dieser stand uns jederzeit mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Ein nettes Gespräch war immer drin, und wir haben nicht zuletzt durch Graham viel über Land und Leute erfahren können. Die Natur mit vielfältigen Sehenswürdigkeiten, ob Berge, Tierwelt oder die Landschaft generell, hier haben wir uns wohlgefühlt. Es gab viele schöne Ortschaften und Städte zu bestaunen. Wenn auch teils längere Anfahrten dafür in Kauf zu nehmen sind, war dies für uns stets lohnenswert, ebenso wie die Mitnahme eines Reiseführers. Der kostenlose WLAN-Zugang hat uns gut gefallen. Sollte unser Urlaubsziel wieder einmal die südliche Toskana werden, kommen wir sehr gerne wieder.

Wonderful stay at Capitorio Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our week's time at the Capitorio Cottage. The cottage exceeded our expectations; light filled, immaculate, great kitchen to cook in and stunning grounds. We were even able to build a fire in the evenings when it would get a little chilly. Graham, the host, was so helpful and very personable. It was such a pleasure to be surrounded by all the nature and quiet. This is an ideal place for people looking to stay in a beautiful quiet setting that is a little off the beaten path. The village of Roccalbegna had a wonderful little pizzeria and trattoria that we frequented. Wonderful trails to hike. And all within an hours + drive to Sienna and more touristy areas. This was a real oasis and we feel very fortunate to have been able to stay here. We highly recommend staying here to future travelers.

... nur die Grillen sind zu hören!

  • 5 of 5
Als wir nach einer Unterkunft für unseren Toskana-Urlaub gesucht und Graham's "Capitorio" entdeckt haben, waren wir uns einig: das ist das Richtige!
Und wir haben unsere Entscheidung nicht bereut:
Podere Sant' Angelo ist ein gepflegtes Anwesen inmitten eines liebevoll gestalteten Gartens mit vielen Blumen und aromatischen Kräutern (die ab und an auch den Weg in unsere Kochtöpfe fanden). Die Ferienwohnung selbst, ursprünglich Teil einer Scheune, wurde überlegt und mit Sorgfalt umgebaut (Landhausstil) und bietet alles Notwendige für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt. Besonders schön ist die Terrasse mit einem großartigen Blick auf den Monte Labbro und die umliegenden Berge, auf der man die herrliche Ruhe genießen und die Annäherungsversuche der Eidechsen beobachten kann. Graham war uns ein wundervoller Gastgeber – höflich, zurückhaltend und immer hilfsbereits bei Fragen zu interessanten Sehenswürdigkeiten oder empfehlenswerten Restaurants (unser Favorit ist "La Grotta" im nahe gelegenen Roccalbegna).
Kurzum: Wer einen ruhigen und entspannten Urlaub mit abwechslungsreichen Ausflugsmöglichkeiten verbringen möchte, vielleicht auch noch gerne wandert oder radfährt, dem können wir das Podere Sant' Angelo als Unterkunft uneingeschränkt empfehlen.
Mit den besten Wünschen aus Karlsruhe / Germany

Capitorio, che ci ha ospitato per due settimane, è stata un'oasi di bellezza e quiete nella natura con i suoi suoni e profumi. I colori dei tramonti e la bellezza dello sguardo aperto sulla valle e le colline ci hanno regalato benessere e serenità. Graham ci ha accolti con familiarità e un grande sorriso, sempre disponibile e rispettoso della privacy e affabile in piacevoli conversazioni. I suoi modi gentili e cortesi ben si rispecchiano nel bellissimo giardino di piante, fiori ed erbe aromatiche, curato con amore e dedizione. Capitorio è stato esattamente quello che desideravamo, accogliente, silenzioso, luminoso, spazioso, fresco, confortevole e intimo. Il contesto ideale per chi ama la natura e desidera riposo per il corpo e la mente.

Tuscan Holiday

  • 5 of 5
I have had two holidays in Tuscany and both times I have stayed at Podera Sant' Angelo. The cottages are clean, modern (in Tuscan style) and well maintained. Graham, the owner, lives close by and will assist you with his extensive local knowledge, find hidden attractions, events and restaurants. If you want a break well away from the rat race, this is the place to go, no traffic, no crowds. The closest town, Roccalbegna, is a short drive (15 minutes away), Casteldelpiano, 40 minutes and Montepulchiano 1 hour, all worth visiting. For a challenging walk or cycle ride, Monte Amiata is 40 minutes away. Driving from Rome or Pisa will take you roughly two and a half hours but your destination is well worth the drive.

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.
