Farmhouse near Castiglione della Pescaia, Grosseto, Tuscany - Peaceful Hillside Location, 20 minutes drive from Beach
Cancello Rosso was bought in 1980 by an English couple in love with the peaceful Maremma area of Italy for family use. Now refurbished to give simple terracotta floored accommodation and to take advantage of the lovely south facing aspect, there are terraces on the lower ground floor outside the two bedrooms, with relaxing chairs to catch the dipping evening sun and the ground floor terrace is wonderful for lunch, dinner and cocktails. The path down to the pool is paved. There are 8 comfortable loungers by the pool which has a raised wall around it, good for toddlers. There is also a pergola at the pool providing shade for the sleepy, or non-sun worshippers. The drive to the beach is twenty minutes to half an hour through the Maremma countryside; there are lots of wonderful simple restaurants in the immedate vicinity, and lots to see and do in this unspoilt corner of Tuscany, including Siena, Massa Marritima and and endless hill villages.
