A large romantic apartment, focused on a beautiful four poster bed under the arched spaces of one of the old agricultural buildings in this ex-monastery, this is the perfect place to relax. With a sitting room inside and an enormous covered loggia outside, there is plenty of space for comfort, and the swimming pool s a short walk down the hill.
Scuderia is located in Pieve di Caminino, a little hamlet in the beautiful Maremma countryside between Roccastrada and Massa Marittima, is set in a natural, verdant amphitheatre, with enormous olive groves extending down from the wooded, rocky background towards the coast.
On the Pieve di Caminino estate, the romantic ground floor Scuderia suite has a private furnished loggia leading to a large open space framed by two brick arches and including a sitting area with fireplace, a sleeping area with an antique canopy double bed, a kitchen-dining area, and shower room.
The charming and knowledgeable owners, who speak perfect English, have continued the cultivation of the olive groves started by their forefathers, and produce some of the most delicious olive oil in Italy. Their family history has long tradition of famous painters and architects. With excellent taste and skill they have converted the little hamlet into characteristic apartments and cottages for visitors, one of which is Scuderia.
As well as the panoramic views, there are over 500 ha. of woodlands to explore, and an ornamental lake has lawns furnished for sunbathing, flowerbeds and a cooling sprinkler. Within 20 minutes' drive are thermal spas and hot waterfalls. The site for the swimming pool has been carefully chosen to protect the peace and architectural integrity of the hamlet.
Florence is only 90 mins. drive through superb country. As well as visiting famous towns such as Massa Marittima and Siena, from Caminino you can easily explore the park of the Uccellina, the Etruscan cities of Roselle and Vetulonia, Pitigliano and Sovana. The beach is half an hour away, and it is easy to visit Argentario, or you can take a boat to islands such as Giglio, Giannutri and Elba. Add the comfort and peaceful beauty of Pieve di Caminino and you have a recipe for a wonderful holiday.
We had an extraordinary time — it couldn't have been more charming. We are utterly in love with Pieve, Emiliano, the whole family. Thank you so very very much for your insights and tips and for completely understanding what we were looking for for this bohemian elegance and relaxation palace. We hope to be back!
