Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Grosseto region - 'Il Peperoncino'

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 outdoor shower with view, sleeps 7+2 on request


This charming and comfortable villa is situated on 5 acres of olive groves surrounded by rolling Tuscan hills with breathtaking views. It lies in the unspoilt region of Maremma where tourism goes hand-in-hand with local traditions. It was rebuilt by the owners with love and care. The fenced garden is suitable for families with children. It has a well manicured garden and a beautiful loggia to watch the sunset. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and sleeps 7+2 upon request. The living room is airy and the kitchen is fully equipped. On the right side of the house is a pergola with a barbeque and an al fresco dining area with direct access to the kitchen. The pergola overlooks a 12 x 6 m landscaped private pool with a diving board. In various parts of the house there are al-fresco dining areas and different locations to relax depending on your mood. The property provides complete privacy. We recently finished the pool house with open bar to enjoy your long evenings by the pool under the Tuscan sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful vacation. We felt taken care of in this stunning part of Tuscany. Very helpful staff, comfort food in nearby restaurants at reasonable prices, vineyard tours which Rita helped organize, visiting nearby spectacular towns, beautiful beaches and of course coming back to a wonderful home and pool. This is what a perfect vacation should be. The house has every comfort and lacks nothing. Thank you!

Dreamt-of vacations on "Il Peperoncino"

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves Tuscany and the region of Castiglione della Pescaia. So we were very happy to have found so wonderful property of Rita and Giuseppe. A very comfortable and beautiful house, grandiose and stunning garden with a gorgeous!!!!pool...... We had everything or even more what we could expect for a perfect holiday. Also the distance to the beaches is 20 min by car going through the marvelous Tuscan countryside - fields of olive trees, vineyards, sunflowers .... We enjoyed the journey every time . Rita and Giuseppe are very kind people ready to help every time and give precious tips of trip possibilities in the region. We also appreciate very much Rita for have arranged for us umbrellas and sun beds on the beach of Capezzolo in Castiglione della Pescaia. Thank you Rita, thank you, Giuseppe, it has been excellent stay in your wonderful property!!!! We can only recommend to the rest of the world to visit Il Peperoncino. We will come back next summer, already looking forward to being here again. Eccellente Rita, eccellente Giuseppe, eccellente Tuscany!!!!!!! Vera, Josef, Jakub and Anna

il peperoncino

  • 5 of 5

Claidia eine Freundin von Rita hat uns herzlich in Grilli empfangen und uns später in allen wichtigen Punkten instruiert. Nach ca. 3 km Fahrt erreichten wir das Haus "il peperoncino". Eine wunderbares Anwesen (typisch italienisch) mit einem sehr einladenden Pool, machte unsere Ferien zum Erlebnis. Alles war vorhanden und wir konnten in den 2 Wochen so richtig abschalten. Die Anlage liegt etwas erhöht inzwischen Feldern und Olivenbäumen. Auch Rita und Giuseppe lernten wir als sehr nette und hilfsbereite Menschen kennen. Wir können diese Oase nur weiter empfehlen, und hoffen bald wieder in die Toscana reisen zu können.

Traumhafter Ort zum Entspannen!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten zwei wunderschöne Wochen im Ferienhaus "Il Peperoncino". Das Haus sowie das Grundstück sind so wie beschrieben. In natura ist jedoch alles viel schöner.

Das Grundstück ist sehr ruhig gelegen. Der Blick reicht über Olivenbäume, Felder uns Berge. Nachbarn sollen vorhanden sein, wir haben sie jedoch nicht gesehen ;-) Man kann sich auf dem Grundstück ganz ungestört bewegen und die Ruhe genießen.

Die Highlights sind das wunderschön bepflanzte große Grundstück sowie der große Pool, den man bei den sommerlichen Temperaturen auch zur Abkühlung benötigt.

In ca. 15 Autominuten ist man in dem sympathischen kleinen Örtchen Castiglione della Pescaia, in dem man Einkaufen kann, Restaurants und Bars findet sowie zusätzlich, wem der Pool nicht reicht, im Meer baden oder einfach nur am Strand spazieren gehen kann. Die Restaurents und Bars haben vergleichbare Preise wie Deutschland. Das Essen im Supermarkt ("coop") ist etwas teuer als bei uns.

Die Vermieterin Rita ist sehr herzlich und engagiert. Das haben wir so nicht erwartet. Bereits vor der Anreise unterstützt sie mit Ausflugs- und kulinarischen Tipps. Für uns hatte sie auch eine Weinverkostung auf dem Weingut "Le Mortelle" organisiert, die wir nur empfehlen können.

Vor Ort hatte uns Rita´s deutsche Freundin Claudia empfangen. Sie war auch sehr freundlich und stand während unseres Urlaubs gern mit Rat und Tat zur Seite.

Dieser Urlaub wird für uns unvergesslich bleiben!

Owner's Response: Grazie mille Jana & Andrè. We look forward to welcoming you again! The coop and restaurant in Grilli is not as expensive as the ones in Castiglione and this is only 2 minutes away from our house. A presto!

Großes Grundstück supe Haus, super Pool

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus ist wie beschrieben, der Pool ist super und die Lage ist ruhig und lädt zu erholsamen Abenden ein. Wer möchte kann sich jedoch auch in den Urlaubertrubel stürzen und schöne Abende in Massa Maritima oder Castiglione oder oder oder verbringen :-).

Einfach den Empfehlungen von Rita folgen. Rita ist das unschätzbare Plus des Hauses, sie organisiert dezent im Hintergrund alles was das Herz begehrt. Von der Weinverkostung bis zum Angeltrip. Alles geht! An dieser Stelle vielen Dank und herzliche Grüße nach Italien? NY? Singapur? :-) Man weiß nie wo Rita ist :-) aber sie ist immer da. Jörg

Fantastic family place in stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Peperoncino (Dutch family with 3 young kids). The house is great, but the garden and terraces are even better. The large swimming pool was favourite of the kids of course (shallow on one side where the youngest can stand and deep on the other side, so that diving skills could be practised from the board). The difficult dilemma was either to spend the day lazy at the pool, or go out to the wonderful beaches of Castiglione della Pescaia or go to historic cities like Siena, San Gimignano Massa Maritima or even Lucca (take the bike tour on the citywall!). We mixed these ingredients into a wonderful holiday. Every evening there is a philharmonic concert of all animals living in the hills nearby, from woodpeckers to pheasants and from wild boars to toads, supported by all crickets. Rita and Giuseppe have ensured that the house was in perfect order and gave good tips about restaurants, beaches etc. We can recommend Il Covento in Scarlino and of course the "house restaurant" Osteria del Mugnaio, 10 minutes driving from the house. All in all, we fully recommend this house. Surely you will highly regret the moment you have to leave, but you will do so with great memories! Enjoy!

Nach der herzlichen Begrüßung durch die Freundin unserer Gastgeberin Rita, Claudia, am gut zu findenden Treffpunkt in Grilli, wurden wir durch sie zu unserem Urlaubsdomizil auf einem riesigen und wunderschön angelegten Anwesen gelotst. Die Lage des Hauses ist herrlich, weit und breit nur Felder mit Olivenbäumen, Wein und mit dem Auto problemlos zu erreichen. Der Anblick des Grundstücks hat uns im ersten Moment nur staunen lassen. Die Bilder bei HomeAway sind bereits wunderschön, aber vor Ort werden alle Erwartungen übertroffen. Man muss es einfach selbst gesehen haben, um unsere Begeisterung für "Il Peperoncino" verstehen zu können. Die Lage der einzelnen Terrassen bietet aufgrund der einzigartigen Bepflanzung eine angenehme Abgeschiedenheit auch bei Benutzung durch mehrere Personen. Der große und sehr gepflegte Pool im schön dekorierten Aussenbereich wurde von uns fast jeden Tag genossen. Hierbei findet man in jedem Bereich der Villa liebevolle und künstlerische Details, die die Handschrift der Besitzerin tragen. Die Küche ist gut durchdacht (Gewürze, Öl, Essig, Tee, Salz, Zucker usw.), also erst mal schauen, was da ist und dann einkaufen gehen aber auch wieder auffüllen, ist ja klar und war für uns selbstverständlich! Der Grill im Außenbereich ist sehr groß und lädt zu ausgiebigen Grillabenden ein. Das Haus wurde uns in einem einwandfreien und sauberen Zustand übergeben. Man konnte nachts die Fenster ohne Bedenken auflassen, denn die angebrachten Fliegengitter sind ein weiteres durchdachtes Detail. Die Bäder mit Marmorwänden runden das Ganze ab. So viele haben mit ihren persönlichen Worten versucht, ihre Begeisterung für dieses paradiesische Fleckchen Erde auszudrücken, doch man muss es einfach selbst erlebt haben. Dies zu erwähnen ist uns ein Anliegen, denn diese Villa, die Herzlichkeit und Gastfreundschaft von Rita und Claudia haben uns nicht nur einen wunderschönen Urlaub bereitet, sondern waren für uns eine absolute Bereicherung! Barbara und Jürgen

The beach and the sea: The closest beach (sandy beach) is in Castiglione della Pescaia a 15-minute drive from the estate. The water is clean and usually warm enough to swim in from mid-May to October. The sea is generally not rough. Italian beach-life is usually organised via beach clubs, where you can rent a cabin, a parasol and sunbeds by the day or the week as well as have drinks and snacks at the bar of the stabilimento. This is very convenient if you have small children. Often you can just show up at the club without a reservation, but in the months of July/August we recommend making a reservation in advance (please request when booking). Those looking for empty beaches will find them at Castiglione della Pescaia as well - some short stretches at the Castiglione coast are free beaches.

Sightseeing in the region: The breathtaking towns of Pitigliano, Sovana, Sorano, Manciano and the Medieval hilltop village Capalbio to the south-east, Massa Marittima to the north-west, just to name a few. To the south-east at a distance of approx. 90 km are the hot springs at Saturnia, with the famous sulphurous waters and the elegant spa with its beauty treatments.

The Argentario: a peninsula 40 km south of Grosseto famous for the Mediterranean macchia and the jet-set holiday resorts Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole.

Horseback riding: a tradition in Maremma. 5 minutes by car, there is a riding stable with Maremman-bred horses.

Nature: In the National Park 'Uccellina' marked footpaths will lead you through incredibly beautiful pine woods to hidden creeks, past romantic ruins of fortified watch-towers and the abbey of San Rabano, built by monks who arrived from Rhodes in the 10th century. The coastline of this national park is worth a visit - a beach of fine sand stretches along the coast. If you are looking for endless free beaches - this is a paradise.

Wine and food: just by driving around and scouting out the area you will inevitably bump into small traditional restaurants serving delicious local foods and prestigious wine: fresh vegetables, tender salads, ripe tomatoes, wild boar and game, pecorino - the local sheep cheese - and of course the excellent red wine Morellino di Scansano, which is gaining considerable attention from experts. The closest restaurants are a minute away from the house.


Golf Club Toscana Il Pelagone: This golf club is one of the most beautiful and exclusive facilities in Italy. The year-round 18-hole golf course is created in the middle of vineyards and silver olive groves. Small lakes, waterfalls and the Mediterranean fauna and flora give the course its special charm.

18-hole course

Guests are welcome at all times.

Registration is required.

Club ID with entered handicap (36) is required.

Golf Club Punta Ala: There is a beautiful course with a breath-taking view of the sea. In addition to the stunning view, the course offers a lot of natural cliff locations and impressive trees from conifers, pines, cork and other types of oak, not including the many bushes, which create a special challenge for a lot of golfers.

18-hole Punta Ala course

Guests are welcome at all times.

Saturday/Sunday/holidays - registration required.
