IL NIDO is a delightful apartment (size 50 sq meters) completely and well restored according Tuscan style, located in the historical charming medieval hamlet of Gavorrano at High Maremma in Tuscany (South-west). Gavorrano is placed on the top of a hill (altitude of 273 m), few kilometres far from the Follonica gulf seaside and the beautiful beaches of Punta Ala and Castiglione della Pescaia.

The place is very quiet and panoramic with a great view over the countryside to the sea where the sun set in a gorgeous sight.

The apartment, recently fully restored, is really picturesque with attractive wooden- beam ceiling and antique terracotta floor maintaining the original features and the charm of the period when it was built. It is furnished in antiques. It is placed at the ground floor of a characteristic two-storied building in a typical little street, with an independent entrance.

About Rosy

Hi, I am Rosy and I will be happy to host you in my lovely typical apartment in Gavorrano. I am a calm and positive woman. I like reading, music, art, good cooking, a good conversation, trekking. I like travelling and meeting new friends. I love nature and meditation. I try to enjoy life and to live in peace and harmony doing the things I love. I love creative open minded people with positive energy and I appreciate very much the good sense of humor.

I am glad to provide the best atmosphere for guests in my apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

IMPORTANT NOTE:

in this part of Tuscany you can easy drive as there is a few traffic and wide roads. Anyway Gavorrano is served by local buses to reach the main local towns and village. A good advice for people used to opposite drive is to rent a car for reaching the sea, Follonica or Grosseto and from there get bus or train to reach Florence, Siena, Rome, Pisa.

The apartment is very fresh in summer time.

There is not a garden or terrace but you can seat out the apartment in the picturesque street where no cars are allowed. There is a bench and pots with plants just outside the apartment and the little street is very quiet and relaxing. In a part of the street local persons seat out for talking during summer time.

Quality of life in Gavorrano has been preserved and remained as it was many years ago when people were sitting outside in the summer evening to chat.

Gavorrano is still remained a pristine village where you see the real life than once.

Anyway in the village you have all the amenities that makes comfortable your holiday.

Tranquillità e cordialità: un soggiorno da ricordare

  • 3 of 5

L’appartamento è funzionale e ben attrezzato (non c’è bisogno di portarsi stoviglie o pentole), arredato con gusto e sito nell’arroccato centro storico del medievale borgo di Gavorrano.

Sconsigliato a chi ha problemi di deambulazione perché l’auto va lasciata nei parcheggi liberi che si trovano nei dintorni: distano dai 50 ai 250m ed è tutta salita.

Consiglio a chi soggiornerà, di viaggiare leggeri.

Lo svantaggio del parcheggio è pienamente ricompensato dalla tranquillità del borgo: a parte qualche scaramuccia felina notturna ( qui i gatti sono sempre a spasso per le strette viuzze ) si gode di un silenzio ormai dimenticato.

Tutte le sere abbiamo goduto di una bella arietta fresca che si incanalava per le vie e ci ha permesso di dormire serenamente.

La signora Rossella ama il suo “Nido”, quindi mi raccomando trattatelo bene e seguite le chiare e precise istruzioni che vi verranno da lei fornite, non appena concluderete l’acquisto di un soggiorno in questa abitazione.

Note dolenti: il bagno è privo di finestra ( c’è una ventola di aspirazione) e non c’è il bidet.

Se siete più alti di 1,80m dovete prestare attenzione ad attraversare la porta della camera da letto e la soglia della doccia.

La zona è favorevole per gli spostamenti: le strade sono agevoli e i meno di mezz’ora si raggiungono i parcheggi delle spiagge più belle della Maremma.

Spero che possiate godere anche voi della tranquillità di questo borgo storico.

Immer wieder gern !

  • 5 of 5

Il Nido. wirklich ein Nest, zum Wohlfühlen, Geniessen und Entspannen. Urgemütlich, gepflegt, wunderschön mit den alten Möbeln, den dicken Wänden, den traditionellen Decken und der freundlichen Menschen, die in der Nachbarschaft leben. Nach Ausflügen in die traumhafte Umgebung, den vielen mittelalterlichen Dörfchen und Städten, konnten wir im " Nest " ausruhen und die leckeren Produkte der Toscana geniessen - Pfirsiche, Auberginen, Olivenöl, Wein und Peccoriono. Wir werden wiederkommen!!

POUR DECOUVRIR LA VRAIE ITALIE!

  • 5 of 5

Magnifique appartement fonctionnel pour un couple et deux adolescents. Le charme de ce très bel appartement à la décoration magnifique situé dans le petit village de Gavorrano. Nous avons apprécié la proximité du supermarché, deux restaurants et d’un café juste à 200 mètres. Un endroit frais pour se ressourcer après nos journées de visite. Appartement pourvu de tout ce dont nous pouvions avoir besoin: parfait! Emplacement idéal pour une escapade en amoureux ou en famille! Et à deux pas de tout.

De belles plages sont proches et en bref nous avons été charmés par cette partie de la Toscane peut être encore un peu moins connue que les alentours de Florence, mais qui mérite au moins autant le détour. Et séjourner ici ne fait qu'ajouter à la magie de ces vacances qui peuvent être à choix, reposantes ou très actives. On espère revenir!

Super séjour!

  • 5 of 5

Super séjour dans un appartement magnifique à Gavoranno, meublée avec beaucoup de goût , propre, bien équipé et très confortable. C'est vraiment typique de la Toscane, à faire absolument en plus le prix est très interessant. Tout était parfait. Pleins de petits villages magnifiques autour de la maison. Environnement magnifique au coeur de la campagne toscane, près de la mer; tranquillité assurée. Nous avons passé des vacances très agréables avec les enfants. Nous sommes toujours enchanté, ravie, transporté par la beauté du site. A recommander sûrement!

Wine production is the most important activity of the whole area and Gavorrano is one of the greatest producers. Gavorrano is moreover famous for the old mines of pyrite, nowadays closed and making part of the ArchaeoMine Park. In that park a theatre has been recently built and during summer time many performances are played by famous artists. Moreover Gavorrano became famous by the history of Pia de’Tolomei, mentioned by Dante Alighieri in his masterpiece “Divina Commedia” Purgatorio canto 5°.

The clear water sea, the mild climate all the year long, the possibility of playing all kind of sports and the choice of rocky or sandy white beaches makes the Maremma coast one of the most required place all over the world for holidays.

This land, rich of history and medieval hamlets, will offer you an unforgettable holiday with its culture, art, beautiful sea, natural parks and unpolluted nature. In Follonica you can find a great Water park.
