We arrived in the early evening to find she had left out a bottle of wine, crackers and delicious home-made oat biscuits. The old convent is located in a great location for visiting inland and coastal sites in the Maremma. We spent our days exploring beaches, spas and pretty Tuscan hill towns, and tended only to be in the apartment in the evenings. We found good food shops in the local town, Scansano. The apartment is on the top floor of the convent. The kitchen's simply furnished but has all that you need for a holiday. We ate our meals inside, looking out towards the hills beyond. I imagine we'd have spent more time outside, in the courtyard below - where there's a wonderful old fig tree - if we'd come earlier in the summer when the days were longer. We were very comfortable and happy in Maria's apartment. We had a wonderful time!

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      This is such a special place. I, my husband and two teenage sons enjoyed a wonderful fortnight in this stunning and superior farmhouse. The photographs don't do the place justice (hard to see how they could) and the host, Alessandro, could not have done more to make our stay better. If you're looking to get off the beaten track, surrounded by nature, wildlife and perfect peace, this is the place for you. From start to finish, Alessandro was great. He offered to meet us at the nearest village so we could follow him to the house (though his directions were superb) and his hospitality was absolutely second to none. He went above and beyond the 'norm', filling the fridge and cupboards with delicious (and practical) foods for our arrival, providing us with wine, oil, kitchen essentials and so much more. We were blown away by his thoughtful generosity - there's nothing he didn't think of (even bath robes for the pool) and everything we sat on, slept in or used was of excellent quality. He was a lovely, willing and helpful host in every way and I've never stayed anywhere so well equipped - the kitchen was better than my own! This is not a place you'd find by accident, but wow, is it all the better for that. Surrounded by beautiful rolling hills, totally private, the views are breathtaking, the sunsets from the verandah magical. Every day kites and eagles flew overhead and we also saw deer, badgers and hares – just idyllic. The house sits in lovely sloping lawns with ancient trees, olives and fruit trees and has a wonderful pool that gets the sun right though to sunset. There's even a cool little pool robot to keep it clean! Alessandro's eye for design and style shines through every room, neatly blended with practicality and home comfort. I would live in this house. It's a fantastic mix of old and new - fabulous beams and solid oak doors with super-comfortable beds and quality bathrooms and appliances. Everything he provided, from towels and bed linen to kitchen equipment - in fact, every facility you can think of - was faultless. Some might find the few wind turbines on one of the hills distracting, we didn't (you can't see them from the verandah), and you're not really 'near' anywhere, but that's the magic of this place! We had no problem driving to Scansano for meals out or groceries (15 mins). We visited Pitigliano (40 mins), Saturnia hot springs (30), Sorana and Sovana etc. Also Siena (an easy 90-min drive) and San Gimignano (bit further). Paradise!
