Roccastrada House Rental Photos and Description

2 guest houses with 3 bed rooms, 2 bathrooms, heatable whirlpool

If you want to enjoy the cultural high lights of Roman or Etruscan excavations and cities...Guinzano is in an ideal central position for such visits.

If you want to walk through thick forests of chestnut trees with drinkable spring water wells...you will find these in the hills surrounding the village of Sassofortino.

If you want to get some exercise...there are challenging trekking paths in the area and great bicycle opportunities in the hills or through the Maremma. And for a less tiring exercise...we have the new boccia course!

If you are looking for wellness and health...take a bath in hot sulphur wells, either for example at the elegant hotel in Petriolo or at the impressing Saturnia well.

If you long for the blue sea side and long sandy beaches...you will find them after abourt 30 minutes drive at pittoresque Castiglione della Pescaia or in mundane Punta Ala.

And if you want to unwind, soak up the sun and recharge...stay at Guinzano under an olive tree with a good book and a glass of delicious red wine.

About Elfi C.Garthe

I was born and grew up as the youngest of a large family in Frankfurt/Main where I also graduated from the university. As an investment banker I have travelled the world and have lived and worked many years in New York and London as well as shorter periods in Lausanne and Zagreb. But I always returned to my home in Frankfurt.

As I have recently retired my partner and I have now more time for our hobbies: As to me, I have a passion to cook. I love to get this special Tuscan light into my paintings. And presently, I do a pilgrimage, the 'Francigena'. By stages I follow the Italian route from the French border down to Rome.

Elfi C.Garthe purchased this house in 1998

Why Elfi C.Garthe chose Grosseto Region

In summer 1997 we went to see friends who had bought a house near Cecina and immediately I fell in love with this charming and beautiful country side. With the help of a broker and after many week end trips and visits we found our little paradise 'Guinzano' in spring 1998: An almost 100 year old house made of natural stone almost covered by an equally old giant fig-tree. The refurbishment of the house, the construction of the guest houses with all necessry facilities and the planting of the olive grove have taken us almost 10 years. But it was worth it: Guinzano has become our second 'Heimat'.

What makes this house unique

Guinzano is nature at its best in absolute peace and wonderful views. In spring beautiful singing birds, in summer rare wild flowers in thick grass, in autom you just watch olives growing and in winter you observe wild deer, porcupines and wild boar on site just before daybreak.

vacanza bella

  • 4 of 5

Buongiorno Elfi,

desideriamo dirti che abbiamo molto gradito il piacevole soggiorno nelle tua fattoria e ringraziarti di cuore per la tua squisita gentilezza ed ospitalità anche per averci fatto trovare un ottimo olio ed un'ottima marmellata fatti da te.

Il posto è bellissimo, la casa è molto accogliente, tenuta bene, ben attrezzata e pulitam così pure tutto quello che c'è intorno..

E' l'ideale per unda vacanze di completo relax-

Per chi vuole andare al mare la spiaggia è un po' lontana. Soprattutto in agosto a Castiglione è quasi impossibile trovare un parcheggio. Come ci ha consigliato il tuo conoscente e fac-totum, di cui non ricordo il nome, siamo andati alle spiagge di Punta Ala che sono più lontane.

Se proprio dobbiamo fare delle critiche, abbiamo notato che nei bagni manca il bidet e che la televisione è in lingua tedesca. Dato che la fattoria è in Italia e per gli ospiti italiani sarebbe opportuno installare anche la televisione in lingua italiana.

Tutto sommato siamo stati molto bene, anche se per un breve periodo. Ci ritorneremmo volentieri,

Herzlichen Dank nochmals und viele liebe Grüße an Dich und auch an Dietrich, Ihm alle gute Wünsche für sein Rückenleiden.

Corinne Meller Freni + Familie und Nora Meller

Zu empfehlen!

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben in dieser Ferienwohnung eine wunderschöne Woche in der Toskana verbracht.

In den beiden Häuschen hatten wir (2 Erw., 3 Jugendliche) großzügig Platz.

Die Ferienwohnung ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet und gut ausgestattet.

Der Zufahrtsweg ist etwas aufregend: Ein steil abfallender Schotterweg. Die herrliche Lage macht dies aber wieder wett: Man kann hier im idyllischen Außengelände, im Olivenhain, auf der großen Terasse oder im Whirpool den Urlaub wirklich genießen.

Die Vermieter waren sehr freundlich und bemüht, uns den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu machen.

Wir kommen bestimmt mal wieder.
