ROOM FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY OR FRIENDS.
There are two bathrooms. The main-bathroom with shower, sink, toilet and daylight through a window is on 1st floor. Another toilet plus great sink, mirror, shelve for toothbrushes, razor etc. is on the ground floor. There are two bedrooms on 1st floor.
Each bedroom is equipped with a double bed. In bedroom 1 there is a huge cabinet, a chest and 2 chairs. From the window you look into the big palmtree in the garden. Bedroom 2 has a special extra: from here a stairway leads you to the roof-terrace. Here you have about 15 squaremeters under the sky where nobody can see you. It’s a perfect place to have breakfast in the morning-sun, to take a sunbath or to have a glass of wine under the stars. We give you a foldeble small-childrens bed for free, if you need it.
HOMECOOKING IS AS EASY AS WALKING TO A RESTAURANT.
In the dining-section of the living room you will find a massive wooden table with 6 chairs (please see pictures).In the garden there is another big table with chairs. Homecooking is easy, because there is an open kitchen with a wide working-plate made of stone. You can cook on a 4-flame gas or bake in a seperate electric oven. Refridgerator, dish-cleaner and all the things you need in the kitchen are there.
In Caldana there are 3 good restaurants and a pizza-service (300-400 meters). The nice italian guy, who owns the neighbour-house is the chef of one of our favourite restaurants in Grilli (5km). You’ll find many more in the villages around. In the morning you can walk to the supermarket or the bakery to fetch fresh pannini for your breakfast.
A THOUSAND THINGS TO SEE AND DO.
Fantatsic natural sandy beaches (Cala Violina, Cala Martina, Casetta Civinnini) are just around the hill. Sweetwater-swimming is great in Lago dell Accesa (15km) on the way to Massa Marittima. The near Via Aurelia (no maut) also takes you fast and comfortable to many destinations. Have a look at Siena (80km), Grosseto (30km), Massa Marittima (25km), Follonica (20km). Even Rome is only 200km away and a regional train takes you there. Volterra, San Gimigniano, Pisa – all these classics are in reach of an 1.5 hour car-ride. Before your doorstep there is a lot of forest with marked footpaths for your „wanderlust“. You can even wander through the hills and woods to the nearest sandy beach „Cala Violina“ (if you are a fit wanderer). The Maremma Natural Park (50km on highway) is a real must. Endless natural, sandy beaches and the charming island Giglio and Elba in front of you.
In Saturnia you can take a free(!) bath in thermal-water, that runs down natural terraces. Interested in art? Take a look at the famous Tarot-Garden created by Niki de Saint Phalle, the Spoerri-Garden or the very interesting sculpture-park plus gallery near Siena. From the roof-terrace you see Vetulonia on the opposite hill. This is an old etruscan settlement and very nice village. There is a lot of etruscan relicts, tombs and art to see in the region. You can pay a visit to Monte Argentario with ist noble Porto Ercole. Boats will bring you to the charming little island Giglio in front of the coast, or you take the ferry to Elba.
A DORADO FOR GOLF-PLAYERS.
There are some great golf-courses, the nearest is in Pelagone, half way to Follonica. International tournaments are held there. The golf-course in Punta Ala is rated as one of the most beautiful in Europe with it's view on the thyrrenean sea.
