We stayed there for one week as part of a 2 weeks car drive. Our place was a self-contained, 2 bed room apartment called “ Il Pozzino”. The compound has a nice green appearance, is tidy and is well-kept. We were lucky not to be in the main building, which was adjacent to a country road with regular (speeding) traffic and trucks. So, we could enjoy the quietness of the place very much. The apartment was close to surrounding cities and easy to reach. A small shopping center with a big supermarket full with Italian goodies is a 5-minutes car drive away.
The apartment has a nice, country style appearance and is comfortable. Beds are ok, aircons do their work well. The kitchen equipment is poor, though, due to the not uncommon attitude of managers to assume their guests dine out anyway. I am a hobby cook, so my perspective is rather different. This point needs attention, as it somewhat spoils the image of this lovely place.
About dining out: the main building (Casa Livia) has a very nice restaurant that can easily compete in quality with alternatives you have in the towns nearby. Good atmosphere there, decent prices and friendly service.
I would most definitely recommend the Il Pozzino apartment for people wanting to explore the Maremma area and enjoy a peaceful place to stay – TIP: do not book the main building if you want to avoid any remembrance of traffic during your holiday.
