Looking for time out from the hustle and bustle of the city? Hop on the train at Termini and head to Grosseto. In two hours you’ll find yourself at Tenuta Agricola dell’Uccellina ready to unwind on their 400 acres of land in the heart of the Maremma Reserve.
They offer many spacious apartments decorated in a Tuscan style, including details such as antique timber beamed ceilings. The brand new suites boast a simple and stylish design, with a spacious living room, shower and modern fireplace.
Want someone else to do the cooking? No problem. The restaurant offers you a range of authentic Tuscan dishes all made with organic produce sourced locally in accordance with the 0km slow food movement. There are also plenty of activities for the nature explorer or the leisure traveler. Go horseback riding amidst the rows of grapevines and olive trees, or indulge in a wine, cheese, and jam tasting, sampling their products made onsite. Feeling more adventurous? Choose from one of their two new trekking trails, covering just under 12km or 8km of the Maremma National Park.
The philosophy here is all about energy-saving, natural food and doing things in harmony with the environment. With so much to do on the country estate you may run out of time but it’s definitely worth exploring the seaside. Only four kilometers across the Maremma Park, you can go by foot, bike or take advantage of their shuttle service to arrive at the pristine unspoilt bay.
