We love this area, it is peaceful, the food is fantastic and there are a lot of nice places to visit, the sea coast can be easily reached as well as the famous Saturnia hot springs.

Imagine a place where you can have a bath in a hot water all year, with natural falls behind , even in the night under the moon light and the stars shining in the dark... for free! This place exits and it is 20 min far from us.

Charming House in the heart of south Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house from the 3th of july-15th of july 2016 and really enjoyed our stay! The house was perfectly clean and everything was nicely set up for our arrival. We were welcomed with fresh eggs, wine & olive oil and Valeria showed us around the property. We made several trips to different beaches, but also explored nearby villages like Pomonte, Montemerano and Pittigliano. We also enjoyed afternoons by the pool and evenings by the barbecue. The landscapes in this area are beautiful & we went out and enjoyed pizza at a local authentic restaurant. Valeria helped us out with our questions and gave us recommendations what to visit and where to go. Mirko helped us with our questions as well. In general, we always had pleasant conversations & felt welcomed. We would recommend this property to anyone who would like to explore the south tuscany and wants to stay at an authentic italian house. You'll not be disappointed by the beauty & atmosphere of the south tuscany.

Thanks for everything!

Relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxing stay without anything missing. First of all the warmly welcome with wine, olive oil and eggs. Then we never had to hesitate to ask for more eggs or lettuce from the garden. We got any help we needed and had some nice smalltalk with Valeria.

The apartement was well equipped and very clean. So was the pool, which especially was used by our son.

The surrounding is wonderful and you can reach a lot of interesting things to visit by a short drive. We espacially enjoyed the hot springs of Saturnia and the Parco dei Tarocchi (!!!!!) which everyone should visit espacially with kids.

A supermarket where you can buy everything you need is in Pomonte, 10 minutes to drive as well as a nice Restaurant (Antica Maremma) where you can get typical italian food and pizza.

So thank you very much for a wonderful and relaxing holiday!

Tranquil part of Tuscany

  • 4 of 5

Great views from this apartment and a very friendly reception from the owners. The apartment was clean and well maintained and had a lovely garden with some toy tractors which all the kids loved. Excellent value for money and the tranquillity is great but it is a little off the beaten track so need to be prepared to do some driving. Our favourite day trip was the beach at Albarese.

Tuscan break

  • 4 of 5

Aquilaia was a lovely apartment in which to relax in beautiful countryside after the hectic pace of Rome.

Our hosts were there if needed and the welcome gift of oil, wine and eggs was thoughtful and much appreciated.

Situated in an ideal spot for exploring both coast and inland, I can see myself returning and recommending to friends.

Beautiful area of the world

  • 5 of 5

Great property for relaxing, outdoor dining and getting away from it all. 2+2 family lots of space, comfy beds and even decent wifi. Very traditional interior but used outdoors as much as indoors. Only 30 minutes to beautiful beaches, hot springs or mountain villages.
