IN THE HEART OF MAREMMA TOSCANA, A STONE’S THROW FROM THE SEASIDE
A beautifully panoramic dirt road gently clambers up the hill to the yard of our typical farmhouse less than 2 km from Rocchette beach.
From its favourable location on a splendid natural terrace on Pian di Rocca, the agritourism Tenuta Valdelmelo offers a gorgeous view of the sea and of the mountains of the “Parco della Maremma”.
A flowered garden sheltered by domestic pines surrounds the recently renovated farmhouse; beyond it the 265-hectar park of pinewood and Mediterranean scrub of Tenuta Valdelmelo – an array of colours and perfumes that will capture your senses. Come and roam freely among its impressive century-old holm and cork oaks and spot the numerous wild animals: boars, roe deers, foxes, hares, porcupines, badgers, and even tortoises!
Eighteen kilometers of dirt roads and tracks twisting throughout the farm will take you to discover gorgeous panoramic viewpoints of the Punta Ala promontory and the whole Tuscan archipelago. Our e-bikes make the exploration easier – they can be rented at competitive rates – and the area is perfect for nordic walking and trail running.
The beaches of Punta Ala and Rocchette are respectively only 15 and 5 minutes by car; only 20 minutes away you can find the best spots for kitesurfing, windsurfing and SUP of the whole region.
OUR OLIVE OIL
Among our farm products, the crown jewel is definitely our extra virgin olive oil, an essence of aromas and flavours of the olives harvested from the young trees grown in an ancient territory: the farm is indeed situated in the area of the Etruscan town of Vetulonia. Here olive oil has been the most important agricultural product for millennia.
PGI TUSCAN EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
