This property is located in the southern region of Tuscany known as "Maremma". It is a beautiful part of Tuscany, famous for the undiscovered wildernesses, its national parks and for the spectacular Mediterranean coastline with blue-flag beaches stretching for as long as the eye can see. Further to its natural attractions, the area offers great options for those fond of culture and relaxation. The town of Saturnia, famous for its thermal springs and one of the most beautiful golf courses in Tuscany, is 15 kms away from the property while the Etruscan villages of Pitigliano, Manciano and Montemerano are all within 20 kms. The owners of Monte Cavallo restored the original stone-built farmhouse when they moved to Maremma to start an organic farm - located just 15 minutes away from the property - for the production of natural cosmetics, food supplements and herbal tea cultivating only the Mediterranean flora and autochthon Maremman plants. The property, reachable via a 3 km white road, is located in a very secluded position, reflecting the owners' love for nature and offering breathtaking views over the surrounding countryside. The beauty of the house has previously been captured and published on Ville e Giardini, a renowned Italian Magazine specialized in country houses and villas. It is furnished in an elegant country style and equipped with all modern comforts, including a high-speed internet connection not easy to find in that area. Standout features of the house include the very bright covered veranda, the patio furnished for 'al fresco' dining, and the swimming pool built with the aim of reproducing an old water reservoir. Wine tastings are available in the surroundings. Resident cat on the estate.
Ground Floor: Sitting/dining room opening onto a pergola furnished for 'al fresco' dining; closed veranda also opening onto the garden; kitchen; laundry room. On this floor there is also a staff bedroom with two bunk beds and a bathroom (shower only). First Floor: double bedroom with en-suite bathroom (bath and shower); twin bedroom and single bedroom sharing a bathroom (bath and shower)
We had great days at Monte Cavallo in a wonderfull house which is extraordinarilly furnished and makes the stay very comfortable in each regard.
The kitchen is exellent equipped.
The last part of the road to the house is a little bit difficult and we recommend not to use a lowlying car.
The owner and the manager are very kind an unkomplicated.
We very much can recommend this house.
Nous avons apprécié l'agrément de la villa, la beauté de la vue et la qualité du service de Michela mais détesté le très long chemin - près de 30 minutes de Manciano - impraticable pour des berlines de tourisme à la garde au sol basse - seul un 4x4 permet un accès aisé -. Enfin, la villa ne peut pas véritablement accueillir 5 adultes dans de bonnes conditions de confort : la 3ème chambre est très petite et sans équipement pour l'aérer et la salle de bains commune aux deux chambres est également très petite.
Nous ne recommandons pas cette villa pour des personnes qui recherchent une prestation d'excellence.
