From the discovery of the territory on foot, by car, by bike, by motorbike or on horseback, to the sweet doing nothing lying on the hammock in our garden, we will be happy to share with you the knowledge of places and people and the pleasant experiences we have gained in these years of hanging around the splendid Tuscan Maremma.
Wake up in the morning in a huge garden; go out and walk barefoot on the lawn; look around and see only nature, small estates, olive groves, vineyards and rolling hills that slope towards the sea; lengthen your gaze and see in the distance the Promontorio dell’Argentario on the left, the island of Giglio in the middle and the hills above Talamone on the right; organize the day by choosing between sea, nature, art or the Dolce Far Niente (the sweet doing nothing); end the evening with a nice typical Tuscan dinner …
If this is not relaxing …
We are just a few kilometers away from some of the most beautiful and evocative beaches of central-northern Tirreno. From the Tagliata of Ansedonia with its volcanic sand and the remains of the Roman port of the City of Cosa, to the Feniglia with its splendid pinewood and nature reserve, to the beaches of the small coves of the Argentario Promontory, to the Giannella beach that separates the sea from the lagoon of Orbetello, the beach dell’Osa and Fonteblanda famous for kitesurfing and sailing disciplines, the beach “Bagno delle Donne” of Talamone, up to the wild beach of Uccellina inside the park Regional of the Maremma. All are reachable with a short car ride: from the 10 kilometers of the Osa to the 33 kilometers (in the middle of nature) dell’Uccelina
In addition to the sea, the territory offers the opportunity to make wonderful excursions in nature. Bird watching in the Orbetello lagoon, guided tours in the Maremma Regional Park, trekking in the chestnut and beech woods of the slopes of Monte Amiata or, without going so far, a walk in the paths that surround our house, will allow you to feeling immersed in a context in which man and nature have found an almost perfect harmony.
We are lovers of all sports, especially those that are practiced in the open air. To get back into shape or to improve your performance, according to your needs, on request we can organize soft postural gym sessions in the middle of olive trees, training and cycling and MTB excursions (also e-bike), running, swimming, horse riding, sailing, diving, etc. All these by putting at your disposal facilities with qualified trainers and instructors.
The territory of Magliano is the one on which the major vineyards and the most renowned wineries insist where the Morellino di Scansano DOCG is produced. Next to this medium-bodied red wine, here are produced other quality wines from indigenous varieties such as Ciliegiolo and Pugnitello as well as some “Supertuscan” based on Bordeaux blends. Among the white wines dominate the Vermentino Toscano and Ansonaca. The latter is also produced with traditional maceration systems with a long stay on the skins. At the end of August, for a whole week, the “Vinellando” Festival takes place in Magliano, where the producers offer their wines to the public and a specialized jury chooses Morellino and the best white wine of the year.
But fine dining in our territory does not mean only wine. Just think of the typical dishes of the Maremma cuisine from the acqua cotta (cooked water) to the pappa col pomodoro (tomato soup), from the ribollita (vegetable soup) to the pici (artisan pasta), to the roasts based on game meat or to the most refined cuisine of the sea with its Slow Food specialties. Vegetarian and Vegan cuisine is also available, upon request, in most of the restaurants.
Magliano in Tuscany, the ancient Etruscan city of Heba, which later became a Roman city, is one of the oldest human settlements in the territory. The Etruscan inscription called “Disco di Magliano”, now preserved in the Etruscan museum of Florence, found at the end of the 1800s in an underground tomb dating back to the 5th century BC, was instrumental in understanding the Etruscan language as it was engraved on its faces a text composed of about 70 words, one of the longest ever found. In the surroundings there are numerous archaeological areas of Etruscan times.
In the XIII century d.c. the development of the village began with the construction of the first city walls by the Aldobrandeschi of Sovana, then rulers in the territories that extended from the slopes of Mount Amiata to the sea. In the following century, the village passed into the hands of Siena who, during the Renaissance, reinforced and completed the walls and the current layout of the towers. In the middle of the sixteenth century, following the fall of Siena by the Spaniards, the center passed under the Medici and the Grand Duchy of Tuscany until the unification of Italy. The village of Magliano still preserves the original walls and, within them, the structure, the buildings and the network of medieval streets and alleys.
Within a few dozen kilometers from Magliano you can admire the towns of Sorano, Pitigliano and Sovana, the Val d’Orcia with its ancient villages, Siena and its surroundings, the Etruscan necropolis of Tarquinia and Cerveteri. For those who want to take a trip a little longer, they can easily reach the cities of Rome, to the south or Florence, to the north, which are just about 150 kilometers from us.
