Serratone is a superb property, set in one of Tuscan Maremma’s most striking locations and it features extensive grounds and a marvelous, charm-filled country-style villa. The estate rises in the midst of Maremma’s untainted natural environment, surrounded by silent fields and shady woods close to the Tyrrhenean sea’s golden coast. Fully immersed in the countryside’s pristine sounds and scents, the villa is full of character and natural, understated elegance.

This peaceful country-style luxurious retreat rises in a unique location: it is walking distance from the enchanting remnants of a mysterious ancient Castle. The Castle dates back to year 1000 DC, when it was owned by the noble Tolomei family: it is the very castle where the young Pia met her tragic destiny, as Dante Alighieri tells us in his Divine Comedy! Guests of Serratone can easily reach the ruins by foot.

Carefully restored and refurbished to meet modern expectations, the main villa (once a farmhouse) is composed of two different buildings, connected by an open gallery on the ground floor and a terrace on the upper floor. The original architecture is enhanced by refined touches and luxurious amenities. The villa offers 8 spacious and tastefully furnished bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. In addition to the main villa, the property features a fascinating 3 floor annex apartment (it is a converted silos). The converted silos is charming and hosts a small gym on the ground floor, a Jacuzzi and steam room on the 1st floor, and a comfortable double bedroom (tatami bed) with ensuite bathroom on the top floor.

The villa’s exquisite communal areas are spacious and comfortable, iconic of genuine noble Tuscan lifestyle, and offer many an option to relax and unwind. The picturesque country-style kitchen is charming and conveniently equipped with up-to-date facilities. The striking double volume living area includes a sitting room area and a leisure/game room with a lovely billiard table, two card tables and stunning sit-in fireplace, ideal for both relaxing and entertaining friends. The exquisite double volume dining room seats up to 18 for memorable dinner parties and is also comprised of a library area with a lovely fireplace. The villa also features a convenient study (first floor) and a TV viewing room with a state-of-the-art home theatre facility.

Serratone’s grounds are unique, offering splendid views and endless activities, leisure, dining and entertaining options. A visit to Tuscan Maremma is made of memorable moments, such as gazing at spell-binding views, learning about the rich local heritage and savoring delicious specialties, olive oil, wild game and premium wines.
