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 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.

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 had a wonderful week with the family at the Maremma House. We just hang around in the hammock, the deck chairs, the huge pool, enjoyed the sunset, the peacefulness and the little villages around. A wonderful place to relax.

Maremma House is magical! It shows the passion and love from the owners in every corner. When you arrive, you just feel like filling up the fridge and never want to leave the house again!! 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.

Staying at the Maremma House was nothing short of amazing. The house had everything that you would want on your vacation and we really had a great time there. Luca and Andrea were really helpful and open to questions whenever we had them.

The owner Luca was very nice and very attentive from the beginning. That’s how you wish for a host! The house is simply uniquely beautiful, located in a magnificent location and very private. There were six of us and we enjoyed the week to the full. Luca was always there for questions and had great tips for restaurants or excursions. We’ll definitely be back – hopefully very soon. Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

Ruhe und Frieden, von den Vögeln geweckt zu werden in einer naturbelassenen Landschaft der Maremma und sehr herzliche Italiener, das alles findet man im und um das Maremma House! Wir kommen wieder…Thank you Andrea und Luca!

We had a very pleasant stay at the beautiful maremma house in september und we highly recommend to spend holidays there. Andrea cordially introduced us to the house and its facilities in detail, so we felt at home quickly. All you need for holidays you´ll find at this house, including a fine compact disk collection. Even the pool house with its bathroom can be inhabited by two persons, so you have a lot of space for up to eight adults. The owners und architects of this special house are very supportive, so don´t hesitate to contact them.

Ein wunderschönes Haus mit einem grandiosen Rundumblick in die Landschaft der Maremma!
Wir haben zehn Tage Anfang September im Maremma House verbracht und haben uns rundum wohlgefühlt. Schon die erste Kontaktaufnahme mit Andrea und Luca war sehr nett. Dort angekommen konnten wir uns durch Schwimmen im Pool, Relaxen in der absolut ruhigen Lage des Hauses, Wohlfühlen im gepflegten Haus und Erledigen der Einkäufe in Magliano und Pereta supergut erholen.
Das Maremma House beeindruckt durch seine außergewöhnliche Architektur und durch eine hochwertige Ausstattung!
Wir kommen gerne wieder!
