Loc. Massoni, 58025 Monterotondo Marittimo (Grosseto) - ITALIA
San Ottaviano is the perfect location to explore this special area of Tuscany. With a short drive, one is able to reach beautiful beaches (Follonica, San Vincenzo, Cala Violina), medieval hill-top towns (Suvereto, Massa Marittima, Volterra, San Gimignano), parks (Le Biancane, Montioni, San Silvestro), and important vineyards (Petra, Rocca di Frassinello, Argentiera, Gualdo al Tasso - just to name a few).
|Property||Our 26 apartments, housing from 2 to 8 people in each, are divided into two areas: San Ottaviano and Podere I Massoni. San Ottaviano is the main historical building where the reception, brewery and restaurant are housed. Massoni, named for the giant boulders found in this area, is 300 metres away in a quiet olive grove. These apartments have been more recently renovated.
Both areas have their own large panoramic pool and BBQ sites. The apartments at San Ottaviano are part of our B&B, where breakfast is included in the cost of your stay. At I Massoni, breakfast is not included, but our guests have the option of adding it if they wish.
|View||View of the hills, swimming pool, grounds.|
|Outdoors||Swimming pool (seasonal), sun loungers, deck chairs, BBQ. The closest beaches are about 30 km away and are some of the prettiest in Tuscany: the Gulf of Follonica, the Gulf of Baratti and San Vincenzo. The first two have received the Blue Flag for their sandy beaches with a view of Elba. The depth of the water near the shore on these beaches is low enough for children to play and swim.
Follonica and San Vincenzo are also great for shopping and nightlife.
|Amusement||We offer guided tours and tastings in our on-site agricultural artisanal brewery, horseback riding lessons and trail rides at our stables, delicious Tuscan dishes in our km0 restaurant, two 17 x 8 metre pools, miles and miles of marked trails through woods and fields, and many farm animals to visit! (cows, horses, pig, chickens, donkeys, bees, and our dog, Petra!). Also featured on the property are our large event room, common room with a television, ping-pong tables and a pool table.|
