Experience Tuscany in its most original form. In the middle of the untouched green hills of the Maremma, about an hour's drive from the beautiful beaches of Marina de Grosseto, where time seems to stand still. Podere Sant'Angelo is situated in the heart of the Maremma, about six kilometres from the picturesque village of Roccalbegna.
Our three apartments offer you a great place to relax and leave the stress of everyday life behind. Upon arrival you'll be welcomed by the scent of lavender, thyme, oregano, sage and rosemary. The Mediterranean garden is guaranteed to be your favourite spot. Enjoy the tranquillity of nature and let yourself be seduced every evening by the play of colours of the most beautiful sunsets.
Your English host speaks fluent German, French and of course Italian and is happy to advise his guests on the countryside, its people and culture.
We came here to rest and enjoy Italy. We took our rest sitting in the garden and in the nice comfortable house. We enjoyed the area but most of all the peaceful garden.
What a special place you have here. A little paradise!
What a lovely place! The sounds of nature are overwhelming, the whole surroundings are absolutely stunning. I am absolutely recommending this to my friends. As a photographer I could not have been happier than when I photographed the baby foxes on the path to the house.
We very much enjoyed the quietness here. We recommend a walk along the riverbank at the end of the road. It’s a very untouched river landscape, where you can find porcupine spine if you’re lucky, we were!
My partner and I went for our summer holidays. We cooked lots of delicious meals in the kitchen with fresh produce from the nearby supermarket – in Tuscany, even the supermarkets sell the most gorgeous tomatoes, aubergines and potatoes – so flavoursome! We had an idyllic time painting and writing in the garden and slept so well in the huge bed. Would definitely recommend this place for a sublime, rustic escape!
The location gave easy access to many charming towns and villages. Siena and Florence were manageable within a day. There were a number of restaurants within easy reach and we had some wonderful food and wine. There are many walks signposted close to Podere Sant’Angelo and we plan to explore more of them next time we visit.
It’s so quiet and peaceful all day long (if you would want to stay). There’s absolutely no sound of cars or human to be heard and only the sound of nature is there to enjoy!
Also the place itself is really well done. Everything you need is there.
And then there is Tuscany itself with the beautiful sceneries, fields, trees, hours, landscapes… breathtaking!
Authentieke dorpjes zoals Roccalbegna maar ook verder weg gelegen oude stadjes met Etruskische wortels, organisch gevormd tegen de top van de heuvels.
Een mooi huisje voor twee personen met alles wat je nodig hebt, voldoende privacy en Graham is gewoon een aardige gastheer.
Toegangsweg is onverhard en 2 tot 3 km lang. Mooi huis en uitzicht vanaf het terras. Aardige eigenaar.
Traumhaft gelegen mit schönem Garten und gemütlicher Ferienwohnung zum Wohlfühlen. Sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, sauber und neuwertig. Ideal gelegen für Naturliebhaber, viele Wandermöglichkeiten.
La location è incantevole con tanto verde e una bella vista. Inoltre è tenuta bene e molto curata, bella da vedere e da vivere. E’ un ottimo punto di partenza per andare a visitare i bei borghi e le zone termali che si trovano nella zona. Il proprietario si è rivelato molto cortese e disponibile. Raggiungibile percorrendo una strada sterrata ma agevole.
The Maremma runs south from Siena to the border with Lazio. One might think that this region unites all clichés: historical villages and churches with Renaissance frescoes, ancient Etruscan villages and traditional pottery handicrafts alternate with fantastic wines and traditional food. Winding trails lead through undisturbed nature reserves, there are deserted beaches with crystal-clear waters, as well as cultural treasures and classically designed gardens.
The famous sulphur springs of Saturnia are a 25-minute drive away. The hot, sulphurous water was known to the Etruscans. Enjoy a stay in the "Terme di Saturnia", one of the fifth largest thermal baths in Europe, or visit the nearby waterfall with free entrance and parking.
Empty beaches? They're here too ... Along the coast of southern Tuscany there are also quiet bathing resorts. Castiglione della Pescaia continues to receive the EU's 'cleanest beach' award. The the eight kilometre-long golden sandy beach in the "Parco Naturale di Maremma" is just over an hour away. There's plenty of space here, even in August.
Discover classic Tuscany: San Gimignano, Siena and Florence are within easy reach, as are the villages of Montalcino, Montepulciano and Pienza. Day trips to Rome by fast train from Grosseto are also possible.
