Maremma Estate is a stunning, 32 acre (13 hectares) estate located in ancient, Etruscan country, on the borderland of northern Maremma, and four kilometers from the charming village of Castellina Marittima. The Estate is situated within the wide, wild, and environmentally protected Il Terriccio Nature Reserve and includes four homes constructed from stone. The original farm structure dates back to the 18th century and today reflects a comprehensive and meticulous renovation by the current owners, with guidance from a well-known Tuscan architect.
The estate offers its guests a 12 acre (five hectares) garden, designed and implemented by the internationally well-known architect Paolo Pejrone and his colleague Franco Brugo. The expansive garden includes fruit plants of many different Mediterranean cultures and a superb, fully equipped swimming pool area. This area includes a large solarium, a spacious pool (with a shallow end for children), a patio with sun beds and chairs, a one-floor building hosting a changing room, a well furnished kitchen, a fitness room, and a bathroom. Nearby on the lawn is a large, stone-made barbecue allowing for dining out al fresco with a hearty Tuscan meal and a glass of world renowned wine from Lupicaia-Castello del Terriccio.
All the villas on the estate are completely independent of each other so as to ensure optimum privacy for the guests. They also have unrestricted views of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the main islands of Tuscany; Elba, Capraia, Gorgona and the French island of Corsica. The villas can be booked together to accommodate up to 32 guests, or separately (sharing the pool between them). All four villas have a south-facing patio covered by flowers, an ideal place for relaxing and admiring the view, sunbathing or dining al fresco. The villas are different in size and layout, but all offer laundry facilities, a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, Satellite TV, and bathrooms with soaps, hairdryer and towels.
Please be advised, in order to ensure a quality environment and optimum vacation experience for all guests, a signed "Code of Conduct" (outlining a few, simple rules) will be required from all guests.
The property is overlooked by an experienced resident housekeeper, Guilio, and his wife, Marinella. Giulio oversees the maintenance of the villas and garden, and Marinella, who is known for her cooking skills, coordinates and does maid services for the guests. A valet is also available on request.
