Maremma House

The Maremma region on the southern coast of Tuscany is characterized by wide plains, gentle hills and the nearby sea. The architecture of the Maremma House refers directly to this landscape. Built over three levels, its horizontal lines reflect the natural surroundings. The ultra-modern building does not contrast with the natural world around it, but rather blends into it, looking for all the world as if the lower floor has grown out of the hillside. The lower, partially underground level features two bedrooms and the utility rooms. While on the exterior, the house’s tufa-stone façade recalls the use of volcanic rock, a centuries-old regional building tradition. On the middle level you will find the living, dining and cooking area, and a terrace complete with a pool. The white plastered walls were inspired by typical mediterranean architecture. From the terrace, a steel staircase leads to the top level and the main bedroom, which is also accessible via an internal staircase. The interior wood panelling and additional brass and copper details on this floor, and the shape of the house combined with the external staircases, create an almost nautical atmosphere. You can even see the sea out in the distance: the house offers panoramic views over the hills all the way to the Tyrrhenian Sea.

  1. We stayed at Maremma house with our two kids and had a really great time. The house itself is beautifully designed and the landscape and the views are just stunning. So if you are looking for a holiday in peace on the one hand but with lots of options for interesting places to visit on the other hand this is just the place to go to! Besides, the owners are absolutely friendly and helpful!

  2. The Hilltop house is a gorgeous place. The architecture is beautiful, designed with a keen eye for detail, and stunning views, all the way to the sea. We loved the spacious garden, and the outdoor terrace next to the pool. The kitchen has everything you need, and the bedrooms are very large with luxury linnen. When it got colder outside we lit the well functioning fireplace in the living room creating a very cozy atmosphere. There’s a couple a very pretty small villages around, and lots of wineries worth visiting, all in all a very nice and quiet part of Tuscany. The hosts Luca and Andrea were truly amazing. When travel restrictions suddenly changed because of COVID they helped us figure out what travel documents we had to bring with us. It was a relieve to have such reliable hosts, and on top of that they also arranged two yoga mats to be available in the house, for our daily yoga exercise. We loved everything about the Hilltop house, and highly recommend it.

We were fascinated by the view – it can’t be better. Andrea and Luca are SUPER hosts. Thank you for making our stay so pleasant. We will return one day.
