Our home is a charming vacation rental set in the Tuscany Maremma. The house is set in genuine farmhouse amidst some beautiful rolling hills and just a 10 minutes drive from the Saturnia thermal baths. Our farmhouse is the right place for a perfect Italian getaway in Central Italy, secluded and close to all the major points of interest at the same time. The house is located halfway between Rome and Florence, in the southern tip of Tuscany not far from the Argentario coast.
Argilaia is centered in a pristine natural environment near the thermal baths of Saturnia Terme, in the Morellino di Scansano DOC wine territory less than 2h from the Rome Fiumicino international Airport. We are centrally located between Rome and Florence, both at less than two hours by car and therefore perfectly suited for day trips to all kind of natural, historical and food/wine attractions. We are also close to Siena, Montalcino, San Gimignano, Bolsena Lake, Perugia, Volterra and all the major points of interest of the area. The Maremma Tuscany is the southern tip of Tuscany, also know as one of the wild, virgin regions of Italy, is still an “undiscovered” gem, away from the mainstream type of tourism. What is great of this part of the region compared with areas such Chianti, is the proximity to the mediterranean coast, from La Fornacina you can get to the beaches of the Argentario Coast and Giglio Island in about 40 minutes and within the same range of time you can be on top of the spectacular Mount Amiata a 6000 feet mountain with beautiful apennines landscapes and villages.
Argilaia is set as two units: the main house with 4 comfortable bedrooms with 3 private bathrooms. There are also 2 conveniently located sofa-beds to suit 2 extra guests. The common spaces include a beautifully equipped gourmet kitchen -look for the wood-fired brick oven to cook and make pizza!- a spacious dining room whose table can accommodate up to 14 people. A living room dominated by a 4-sided fireplace is ideal to indulge in cold nights, allowing guests to relax and enjoy the crackling fire, with a book and glass of wine. WiFi is available throughout the property for your enjoyment.
Argilaia is the perfect place to host a Yoga Retreat or other types of holistic workshop. We can accommodate up to 12-14 people. We just inaugurated a new wooden deck in our garden next to the pool. The property is equipped with yoga mats and blocks.
