Stretched between the provinces of Livorno and Grosseto, in a perfect microcosm of sea, hills and mountains that blend together to create a landscape of a thousand shades, the Maremma has always been a land of hospitality, quiet, nature and well-being. The turquoise sea of the Argentario contrasts with the black of the rocks of Talamone, the intense green of the countryside becomes more tenuous when it climbs the gentle hills, blurring into the intense yellows of the fields and then into the ocher and brown of the ancient villages, evocative and guardians of precious walls that are of churches, castles and
fortresses, sighting towers and sumptuous palaces. The sea and the coastal stretch, the metalliferous hills and archaeological parks, the tuff cities, Mount Amiata, the Nature Reserves, and then the cities of art, the medieval villages, the Etruscan sites, and even museums, churches, castles , fortresses, natural parks and endless spaces. This is the Maremma…and much more!
La Fontaccia farmhouse, located at the foot of a small characteristic village of the year one thousand, is an ancient rural stone farmhouse typical of the area, considered of cultural interest.
The company is run by our family and we are driven by a lot of passion for our job, for our land and for our home that tells the story of our family.
This is why every guest who arrives here immediately becomes for us “one of the family”. For us, sharing our passion, our love, our home is a great joy that we want to reach everyone as a sincere thanks for being, even for a short time, with us. Our family is made up of simple and hospitable people, who have chosen the most beautiful life we could wish for, the one in close contact with nature that here is luxuriant and friendly to man.
The structure of the farmhouse is divided into a large apartment “Casa Padronale” on the first floor, and on the ground floor by the apartment “La Cantina”. The “Casa Padronale” apartment is composed of a small kitchen, living room – dining room / living room with fireplace and sofa bed for possible added seats, two double bedrooms with private bathroom and a bedroom with three single beds and private bathroom. On the ground floor “La Cantina” is an open-plan apartment of c.a. 65 square meters with separate entrance and complete bathroom, kitchenette, fireplace, large bedroom and sofa bed. Newly built, the “Il Giardino” apartment is built with local stones and in style with the other buildings. Composed of double bedroom on the ground
floor, double bedroom in the loft, 1 bathroom, living room with kitchenette and double sofa bed, private garden. These three units can be managed in common with groups of up to 20 people, in this case the large pool located among the olive trees is for exclusive use. Separated from the structure there is another stone building of the same period (ex oil mill) used as a B&B with three double bedrooms with bathroom, breakfast room. Everything is furnished with care and with antique furniture and some different ethnic furnishings to stay in a particular and pleasant place. In an adjacent building there are two apartments with a double bedroom with kitchenette and private bathroom.
In our company we breed horses and livestock, we grow olive trees and forage crops and cereals. Our guests can walk around the 50-hectare estate with an artificial lake.
For horse lovers, masonry boxes for horses and an obstacle course in sand (40 × 55) are available.
The structure is managed by our family and we are all engaged in this company, each of us with a specific task. La Fontaccia is an estate that includes many realities, from hospitality to a farm and stables that require a lot of effort and a constant presence in the company.
Welcome to La Fontaccia, welcome to our family!
