All about your agriturismo in Tuscany
Find in Maremma your agriturismo in Tuscany
Among the agriturismos in Tuscany, choose one in Maremma to enjoy an area rich in scenic wonders, food and wine specialties, and a precious historical heritage rooted in Etruscan times. The extraordinary natural context has also been recognized by the European Union, which, due to the absence of industry, qualifies the entire province of Grosseto in which the Maremma is located as a rural district. In fact, it’s an area where the presence of man has been able to develop in harmony with the surrounding environment.
At Saturnia, the most suggestive thermal baths in Tuscany
On Fairbnb.coop you will find some of the most enchanting agriturismos with pool in Tuscany, such as Terra Nera, Il Poggio di Teo and Podere Prataccio, which also offers some impressive Glamping tents: choose the one that suits you and hurry up to book because the Maremma is a popular destination in every season, thanks to its thermal resources with recognised therapeutic properties for the skin and the entire organism.
In fact, in the heart of the Maremma flows the Gorello stream, fed by a spring of sulfurous waters that gush out at a constant temperature of 37.5 °C. Along its course, the stream laps against an ancient mill and, due to a drop in the ground, creates a waterfall and a series of natural pools carved into the rock. A stay in an agriturismo in Tuscany around Saturnia will allow you free access at any time to the Cascate del Mulino waterfalls, also known as Cascatelle, for a suggestive thermal bath immersed in nature. At the Sorano Thermal Baths, on the other hand, you can take the so-called Bagno dei Frati (Friars’ Bath), immersing yourself in a natural pool in the woods.
The holiday farms in Tuscany with a swimming pool are often also equipped with spas and will allow you to continue your wellness path at any time during your holiday.
The Cascate del Mulino waterfalls in Saturnia
What to see in Maremma
A few kilometres from the Cascate del Mulino waterfalls is Montemerano, one of the best-preserved medieval villages in the Maremma, with the characteristic stone houses in the historic center that develop around the evocative Piazza del Castello, protected by three city walls. Another town near the thermal baths of Saturnia that is worth a visit is Manciano, which rises on the top of a hill in the heart of the lower Maremma: climb to the top of the Cassero Tower, the medieval fortress that dominates the town, to admire an extraordinary panorama that sweeps from Monte Amiata to the Argentario promontory.
Consider also that the Upper Maremma is famous for its enchanting tufa towns. You can visit Pitigliano, built on a tuffaceous spur with its overhanging houses that almost merge with the rock. Near Sovana, on the other hand, you can access the Città del Tufo Archaeological Park, with its spectacular Vie Cave that wedge into the tuffaceous rocks connecting monumental Etruscan rock necropolises.
From your agriturismo in Tuscany, you can also easily reach the enchanting seaside resorts and beaches of the Maremma: Castiglione della Pescaia, Marina di Grosseto, Principina Mare, Marina di Alberese, Orbetello and La Feniglia, a splendid natural park with a pine forest.
