About Mel

Ciao :) my husband Thomas and I bought Podere Fulignano almost 20 years ago. By then we both worked in the media business and were a bit tired of its superficiality. The southern Tuscany and its rurality fascinated and inspired us. Since the very first day we consistently renovated, renewed, changed and improved and we still do :) We are looking forward to welcoming you as our guests

Mel purchased this farmhouse in 1995

Why Mel chose Campagnatico

We absolutely fell in love with this place from the very first second we saw it. For us it was like an old stage out of a film or an opera scene. We both felt the peace and the quietness and decided within one hour to buy it. The southern part of Tuscany is still so unspoilt and there are little tourists. The locals became close friends over the past years and treat us and our guests like close friends. And all major cities such as Rome Pisa Siena and Florence are within 1:30 hours reach and even the sea is only 30 minutes away. It's absolutely perfect for us and so say our guests and friends.

What makes this farmhouse unique

For us and our friends and guests Podere Fulignano is the most peaceful spot on earth. It is heavenly quiet with clean air and no light pollution and therefore many shooting stars will be seen in the starry sky. You can listen to the fantastic nature - nightingales and crickets and fireflies. Enjoy the wonderful nature with its fantastic wild life - porcupines, wild boar, deer etc. Visit the unspoilt medieval villages and beaches of Tuscany...

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Mel, I just wanted to write and let you know we had an amazing holiday in Campagnatico. Your property is truly stunning… the villa was incredible, the views to die for, the pool was great, we really couldn’t fault anything. We said all week that’s its truly a 5 star self catering villa experience! We managed to fit a lot in, but relax at the same time, with trips to Siena, the beach, but also some days by the pool, and many a night spent in the small street and nice bars and restaurants of Campagnatico (Locanda del Glicine was incredible food!) We even saw some new kittens being born near the back of Casa Roberta, so next time you are there you may see some news faces. Luciano and his wife were very friendly too, and I don’t think we would have changed a thing about our holiday (well, maybe a little less rain on some days!) Thanks very much for all your help and advice, and for letting us use Casa Roberta. I'm sure we will be back! Thanks and regards Phil, Nerys, Ben & Laura

Pristine inside and out!

  • 4 of 5

If you are truly looking for seclusion from the hustle and bustle of life, this is the place for you. Located down a steep, winding gravel driveway you will find incredible views and TOTAL privacy. No television or electronics to distract you. Huge pool down a small hill from house. Attention paid to details with comfortable outdoor seating, perfectly maintained gardens. Inside well equipped kitchen, plenty of hot water. The outdoor pizza oven is spectacular. The closest market is small and no english is spoken. 15 minutes away though is a well stocked coop. This home is isolated so make sure that is for you.

Living 'la dolce vita' in an adorable surrounding

  • 5 of 5

The casa lola, a charming stone house for 4 to 5 guests, lies within an old olive grove near the picturesque small village of Campagnatico. The surrounding is quiet and beautiful. We enjoyed the view of a picture-perfect tuscanian landscape from our grounds. There are two other houses for travellers - anone belongs to the owners -, so the place was not

'packed' at all with people, you get loads of space for yourself (which was an important factor for us). The facilities in casa lola are impeccable, there's everything you need for a good living (well set up kitchen, very clean and neat in- and outside the house etc.), and even more: Around the corner of the house you get your own pizza-oven and barbecue-grill (runs with gas) besides a lovely terrace where you want to spend hours of cooking and 'mangiare' and fine red wine while enjoying tuscanian sunsets.

Then, there's the large pool area, few yards below the housing complex, which makes it hard for you going out for a daytrip. You just don't want to leave there. ;)

Of course - the price for enjoying peaceful solitude - you need to be motorized for doing grocery shopping, sight seeing. Siena is a one hour ride from Campagnatico e.g. Food is best when buying at the local market or super markets in Grosseto, half an hour by car.

The owners and staff (special thanks to Daniela and Luciano!) were helpful and caring. There is also a small guide book at the house for activities in Grosseto and Campagnatico, with restaurant and shopping suggestions.

We absolutely recommend the Casa Lola and we hope we have the chance to come back soon!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much! I will forward your lovely words to Luciano and Daniela as well - they will be happy to her that - without their help, dedication and passion we would be lost!! And you definitely have to come back and we should have a beer or wine together:) All the best, mel

Beste Mel

Die Sonne hat uns wieder ... Axel & ich haben beschlossen WIR BLEIBEN ...

Manchmal glückt der Versuch, nicht ans Koffer packen und Abreisen zu denken – aber eben nur manchmal.

Wir hatten ganz besonders schöne Tage in Eurem home, haben viiiel gewandert – „bis nach Sienna“. Bei Wind und Regen und natürlich immer wieder bei herrlichem Sonnenschein. Wir haben lekker gekocht und noch besser „außer des eigenen Kochtopfes“ gegessen – was für eine gute Zeit.

Eure Katzen sind so gute, wohl erzogene Tiere. Jeden Morgen habe ich sie gerufen, sie gekuschelt und der Bande Milch-Wasser-Frühstück gegeben – dann lagen sie bei uns im Schatten – putzten ihre plüschigen Samtpfoten, schurrten und entschwanden lautlos.

Am Samstag machen wir nun wirklich „ernst“ – fligen von Rom nach Hause – zum Glück scheint in Den Haag die Sonne – nehmen alles an Erinnerungen mit (die wiegen n ichts im Koffer, aber in unseren Gedanken schwer, schön schwer!) und lassen auf unserem, für 10 Tage ausgeliehenem Tisch mit „a view“, das Pinienzapfen-Hülsenfrüchte-Ensemble“ (unsere Deko vom ersten Tag an) zurück.

Mögen alle Gäste Ruhe und diese Zufriedenheit, Glück und Freude „im Enrico“ finden – wir haben es ...

Ganz vielleicht reisen wir schon FR spät abends ab – die Idee, im Hilton am Airport zu schlafen – ABER Axel mag bis auf die letzte Sekunde bleiben – so denke ich, werden wir gen 5:30 am SA „früh in See stechen gen Rom“ – der Flug geht irgendwas gen 9:40 ... anyway. Wir lassen deb Schlüssel unter dem Stein, bei Luciano haben wir bezahlt – was für ein guter, freundlicher Mensch und wie dumm, dass wir kein italienisch praten – mit unserem sehr spärlichen Langenscheidt versuchten wir es, aber von Erfolg kann da nicht die Rede sein. Bitte richte Luciano auf diesem Weg hartelijke groetjes von uns aus! Bedankt.

Auf ein Wiedersehen.

Alles Liebe und take care

Axel en Andrea

... wir waren zu feige ins Pool zu springen – zu kalt zum Schwimmen – traumhaft zum Wandern – AAABER morgen werde ich eine Runde im Wasser machen – versprochen. Heute schon ist es sehr warm (puuuh, sportlicher Ehrgeiz zieht uns nach San Gimignano – studentische Erinnerungen ... – letzte Wanderrunde) und morgen wird eben geschwommen und in die Ferne geschaut – ans Packen denkt hier keiner ...

At the beautiful and charming little medieval (c.1200 century) village of Campagnatico (700 inhabitants) you will find a small supermarket, a pharmacy, a butcher, a bakery, a bank, a post office, two bars and three restaurants: a pizza place, a trattoria and a very luxurious one (which is an insider’s tip). The next big town is Grosseto, just 18 km away. There you will find everything you need including huge supermarkets, fresh fish markets and a really nice shopping area and walking zone. Campagnatico is located exactly in the middle of a triangle between the three big cities of Florence, Pisa and Rome. There is also good railway connection between these three cities and Grosseto, which is great for arriving to the farm, as well as for sightseeing. The big and beautiful nature reserve 'Parco naturale della Maremma' and the nicest beaches of the Maremma region such as Punta Ala, Monte Argentario, Castiglione della Pescaia are in only half an hour by car from the property.

Other Activities: wine tasting

Golf: 2 different 18 holes Golf Courses located within 40km from the property, open all the year: “Golf Club Toscana - Il Pelagone” (35 km) and “Golf Club Punta Ala” (about 35 km).

'Il Pelagone' is 18 holes, 5.920m, and PAR 71-SSS 70, with many facilities: training field, putting green, pro shop, hire cart, golf bags and trolley, bar, swimming-pool, volley, baby-sitting. During winter is closed on Wednesday.

'Punta Ala', opened in 1964, is 18 holes, 6.168m, PAR 72-SSS 72, with driving range, golf-cars, pro-shop, golf trolley, bar, restaurant and spectacular views all around. Open everyday.
