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.
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 Scuola.
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.
