Beautiful location particularly for families!

  • 5 of 5

Our week long stay at Podere Santa Maria was excellent. Despite our flight landing late and the journey taking longer than anticipated, Giampaulo and his wife were more than happy to meet us at nearly midnight, and even called the local pizzeria (Big Roof Bar - Casino Di Terra, very friendly and helpful inc. great food) and asked them to stay open for us as we were all hungry!! Everything was ready for us in the house and we had everything we needed (minus a kettle - difficult for us Brits!!) everywhere was clean and tidy and had a real homely feel! Particularly loved the bbq area!

The property is in an excellent location outside of the busy Italian holiday towns although not so far away that amenities are inaccessible but car hire is necessary. The pool area is well looked after and is brilliant, particularly for children as it's not too deep. There are plenty of opportunities to explore Tuscany without driving great distances, although the beaches in Cecina and surrounding areas are extremely busy and many areas are privatised, a 30 minute drive gets you to some quiet sandy beaches! Rosignano Solvay - White Beach is a quiet public beach and Follonica beach in particular is well worth a visit as the sea is very calm and shallow, but I'd recommend taking a sat nav as the way is not clearly signposted!!

Also worth noting is that there is a regular and inexpensive train service to Florence and Pisa from Cecina, if you didn't fancy battling with parking!!

I would definitely recommend a holiday here if you're after a mixture of sand and sea and beauiful Tuscan countryside. We had a great family holiday filled with memories!!

The surrounding environment is reflected by the varied nature of the area and classical: from any corner of the farm can be seen all around cultivated fields, pastures and wooded hills, embellished with small medieval villages and farmhouses.

The isolated position and the distance from the paved road of the farm, offering a relaxing stay for those who want to rest. Active guests, however, can swim in the pool, or play volleyball or table tennis; Furthermore, they can make excursions on foot, horseback or mountain bike in the near Macchia Magona (1 635 ha of state forest closed to motorized traffic); Finally, thanks to the central geographical location, can make day trips to nearby cities such as Volterra, San Gimignano, Siena, Pisa, Florence, or the islands of Elba and Giglio. While the Tyrrhenian coast with its beaches is only 20 km of road with little traffic.

For lovers of the 'good wine', moreover, given the proximity, you can walk the 'WINE ROADS' (routes characterized by naturalistic, cultural and historical, as well as vineyards, olive groves and wineries open to individual or associated agricultural public for tastings and / or sale of wine and oil.)

Form the backdrop to all this the surrounding hills, adorned with ancient medieval villages that, like sentinels, overlooking the entire valley.
