Make a holiday villa in Grosseto your home away from home

The province of Grosseto is one of the most fascinating in Tuscany, famous for its varied landscapes that move from beaches and marshes to olive groves, flat plains and dense forests. The medieval town of Grosseto is at its heart and what it lacks in size it more than makes up for with the extraordinary beauty of its ancient architecture including the Medici Fortress. With wildlife parks, golf courses, long stretches of coast and popular festivals, Grosseto has something to cater to all tastes.

HomeAway has a large selection of holiday properties throughout the province. Most holiday villas in Grosseto are situated on the coast, in the heart of the countryside and in ancient towns. One of the most spectacular locations is near the volcanic peak of Monte Amiata, where there are large holiday properties to choose from. HomeAway's Grosseto holiday apartments are also situated in prime spots, and like the villas, feature such facilities as DVD players, televisions and music systems.

Things to do

-Beaches: There are dozens of beaches across Grosseto offering plenty of places to sunbathe and pursue watersports and sailing. The Marina di Grosseto resort is very popular, with a wild, sandy expanse over six kilometres long, leading down to clean, clear water. Porto Santo Stefano has lots of attractive coves and Porto Ercole is a pretty harbour linked to the beaches of Monte Argentario.

-Nature: Nature lovers have hundreds of thousands of acres to explore. Parco Naturale della Maremma e Monti dell’Uccellina is a protected, unspoilt area of the Maremma coast and includes marshes and many colonies of wading birds. The Natural Reserve of the Lagoon of Orbetello attracts migrating birds such as the pink flamingo and the white heron.

-Historic monuments: The town of Grosseto has a hexagonal 16th-century wall that's dominated by an imposing Medici Fortress. Inside Grosseto are a Romanesque-Gothic Cathedral filled with religious artworks, and the ancient church of Saint Francesco. Also within the city walls are medieval palaces including the Neo-Gothic Palazzo Aldobrandeschi.

-Sports: Golf lovers can immerse themselves in their favourite pastime in a number of scenic locations such as Punta Ala in Gavorrano and Porto Ercole. Divers have a great choice of good diving spots off the nearby islands of Giglio, Giannutri and Formiche di Grosseto. There’s also great snorkelling along the coastline and in many of the coves and bays.

-Festivals: Folk and traditional festivals are important to Grosseto, and include religious Feast Days of Patron Saints like the Feast of San Cerbone in Massa Marittima and the Feast of St. Erasmus in Porto Ercole. Other festivals that visitors with holiday villas in Grosseto can enjoy include Balestro del Girifalco with its costume parade in Massa Marittima. This is held on the fourth Sunday of May and the second Sunday of August.

Weather in Grosseto

Die Unterkünfte liegen schattig inmitten eines Waldes, unsere war gut ausgestattet. Der große Pool (ca. 18-20 m lang) ist ein Traum! Sehr herzliche Inhaberfamilie und freundlicher Verwalter. Ein ruhiger und erholsamer Aufenthalt!

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      We loved the view from the balcony most of all. The awning gave a welcome respite from the late afternoon / evening sun. The kitchen was well equipped and we found preparing and cooking food easy due to it. The apartment was clean but we found one of the beds very squeaky and soft. The bins are emptied outside really early most mornings so be prepared to be woken up early! A fan in the second bedroom would be useful as it did get hot during the night but the air conditioning in the other bedroom is lovely. Showering in the small bathrooms was tricky at first but we soon got the hang of not spraying water everywhere. We found the location of the apartment to be really good and we loved walking into the town in the evenings for drinks and meals. We also loved the fact that we could walk south for 20 minutes and be at a reasonably quiet public beach. We also enjoyed a day at Cala Violina and also at the Maremma National park. We would recommend this apartment to families or couples.
