About Isola delle Api
The living room (50 sq. meters), warm and pleasant in its simplicity, has terracotta floors, stone walls, fireplace, sofas and a large dining table, comfortable for 8 persons.
Kitchen is fully equipped with oven, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, stove, pots, pans, plates, cups and anything else; a washing machine is available for guests.
In summer, house expands outdoors, in the shade of the pergola. The garden is furnished with comfortable armchairs, seats and barbeque.
Pool is 120 cm deep, 4 x 8 meters wide; it is safe for children from May to September; bathing in hot water (40°c) in Farma river at Petriolo is a must: you may also enjoy thermal treatments in the fitness center.
In nearby villages of Pari (3 km) and Casal di Pari (1,5 km) you find restaurants, pizzeria and small shops, in Paganico (12 km) there are banks, shops, pharmacy and a big-enough shopping centre. “dolce far niente”, which means “doing nothing” is the most liked activity of our guests; someones, after relaxing by the pool, go and relax to the seaside, many choose cultural/historic/art tours, all of them enjoy the weather and the landscapes of Maremma.
Three bedrooms are upstairs, the largest one, with private bathroom, can accommodate an extra bed; other two rooms share a wide bathroom.
The mini apartment - a cozy nest for a pair – has a separate entrance from the garden: the two apartments can be rented separately or together.
All rooms may have twin or double beds.
Isola delle Api is in Fercole, close to Casal di Pari, municipality of Civitella Paganico, province of Grosseto.
Isola delle Api is an excellent starting point for your “discover Tuscany” holiday. In less than 1 hour drive you reach the seaside and choose your own beach: the sophisticated and exclusive Punta Ala, or the romantic Cala Violina, or the unspoiled beaches in Maremma Natural Park, or Monte Argentario and its unique sea views; sandy beaches in Principina and Marina di Grosseto are preferred by families with children.
Art and antiquities lovers have a very wide choice within easy reach: from Etruscan tombs in Sovana, Tarquinia or Vetulonia, to Roman ruins in Roselle, to medieval castles and abbeys in San Galgano, to the architecture of Siena, Pienza or Massa Marittima.
On July 2nd and August 16th you have to be in Piazza del Campo, Siena to join the Palio, a most unique chance to live real Tuscan tradition.
Some of the best Tuscan wines (Brunello, Montecucco) are produced in the area, as well as olive oil, cheese, meat which you buy from local producers. In summer you may dine, in most villages, under the stars at a “sagra” tasting local specialties such as “tortelli”, mushrooms, snails and plenty of wine as well.
