A Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

We`ve been there several times an we always want to go back there. Its a wonderful place close to the little village of Roccathederighi. You can perfectly drive around to discover the beautiful Maremma area, or you go to Grosseto for the Market on Thurthsday. Several Beaches are not far away. With a little longer drive you can swim in the hot dwells around. Or you just stay at the house, enjoy the quietness, the landscape and the amazing view. Go there you don't want to go away.

Villa non conforme à l'annonce. Déception

  • 1 of 5

Terrible déception pour cette villa qui, sur les photos semblait superbe.

La maison n'est pas bien entretenue, la propreté n'est pas au rendez vous, il y a de la poussière partout, l'électricité n'est pas aux normes (fils électriques dénudés, absence d'ampoule etc.).

Mais le pire est la "piscine" naturelle. Nous avons constaté en arrivant que la pompe et le filtre ne fonctionnait pas, manifestement depuis très longtemps (appareils inutilisables, débranchés, cassés). ce n'était pas une piscine mais une mare d'eau stagnante et puante. Nous n'avons pas pu vous baigner, de peur d'attraper des maladies ou infections.

Nous avons pris contact avec le propriétaire qui nous a dit envoyer un technicien. Celui-ci n'est jamais venu. Nous avons tenté d'avoir des explications avec le propriétaire, celui-ci s'est borné à nous dire que l'état de la piscine était normal car il s'agissait d'une piscine naturelle. C'est complètement faux, les piscines naturelles doivent avoir un système de pompage et de filtrage pour éviter que l'eau ne stagne.

De plus, la personne ne charge du ménage nous a confirmé que les précédents locataires s'étaient plaints de l'état de la piscine mais que le propriétaire refusait d'intervenir.

Nos vacances ont été gâchées car nous comptions utiliser cette piscine pour nous rafraichir et jouer avec notre fille.

Je ne peux que déconseiller cette location, l'annonce n'est pas conforme à la réalité et c'est très très dommage. c'est encore plus regrettable que toute discussion avec le propriétaire soit impossible.

Wunderbare Ferien auf "Il Chiusino"

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschönes Anwesen, so wie man es sich in der Toskana wünscht. Fantastischer Blick auf die Ebene und das Meer mit den Inseln Ciglio und Elba. An Ausstattung ist nicht nur alles vorhanden, sondern auch sehr geschmackvoll und mit viel Liebe gemacht. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen gerne wieder!

Our house Il Chiusino is a typical Tuscan farmhouse.

Some parts of the house are dating from 1799.

We have done a lot of restoration work to modernise the house to a comfortable standard.

We completed the house with additional buildings to make it more spacious and bright.

The house had been our permanent home for 11 years until 2011. We have been living in Il Chiusino with our three children.

The house is fully equipped.

The house sleeps 7 persons.

It has 3 bedrooms with double beds

1 bedroom with a single (may be used as a double) bed and a cod

1 bedroom with a single bed

3 bathrooms.

The garden is full of fruit trees, lillys and mediterranean herbs and plants.

The pool is a natural swimming pond (9m x 4m x 2,10m) which works with no chlorine! Plants do the purifying.

Please notice, that there might be algees and water animals in the water. Like in a natural lake. It is a natural pond and the water is never as clear as in a chemically cleared pool.

From the pond you have breathtaking views towards the sea and the Maremma plain!

Also from nearly everywhere on the 4 ha ground you get the panoramic sights!

We have a lovely pavillion, which invites you to have a sundowner. A truely romantic spot!

Take a walk through the olive grove!

From every window in the house and also from the garden terrace you have these fantastic views into the Maremma plane.

The property consists of 4 hectares of fields, oleander and olive trees. We have around 230 olive trees. Privacy is guaranteed.

Rosemary, lavender and sage are all over the place.

Please feel very welcome to use all the fresh herbs in the kitchen!

The house is the perfect place to start excursions.

Il Chiusino is situated in a triangular, easy to reach: Siena, Grosseto, Pisa, Montepulciano, Arezzo...

even Rome is reaced easily even by train!

You could explore the etruscan history:

Or taste the delicious wines in the wine cellars nearby for example castello Banfi, which produces exquisite wines:

You can go for a swim in the river Farma:

Roccatederighi is the closest village (1,3 km) there you can get everything you need.

Roccatederighi has five restaurants and two bars:

A small coop supermarket and various little shops.

There is also a pharmacy, a post office and a bank.

Bike rental is possible - the owner of the bike shop organises guidesd tours into hidden beautiful places:

Check out our house Il Tufolino in the middle of Roccatederighi, we do rent it too! Sleeps 6, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, have a look:
