Connect to Nature, Connect to Yourself
Podere di Maggio is nestled in a place of powerful and deeply inspiring nature, in the green heart of Tuscany, Monte Amiata region. This dormant volcano stands at 1738 metres in height and is home to a variety of local flora and fauna, as well as the surrounding valleys. It is a favourite amongst nature lovers, hikers, cyclers or anyone looking for peace and silence. We are surrounded by nature reserves, many medieval towns, healing thermal waters and a very old and rich history and culture.
In autumn the forest turns into a wonderful combination of yellow, orange and red and every shade in-between.
In a reasonable distance from Podere di Maggio you find many of these medieval towns such as Orvieto, Siena, Florence, Perugia, Assisi and some lesser known places like Pienza, San Quirico D’Orcia and many others.
The towns around the area look as if they were part of a film, dating back around 1200 and even today they maintain their old charm.
They are an oasis of silence, with beautiful stone structures and forms that are backdrops for a breathtaking play of light and shadow. You can feel the long history in every alley, in every square and every detail.
One of the nicest beaches is in the Parco della Maremma. It is a big nature reserve where the forested hills meet the beach and faces the islands of Giglio and Elba. For the ones that love a more “worldly” place there is Castiglione della Pescaia. Also the Gulf of Baratti is worth a visit.
