Albicocco is a lovely, well-furnished villa located on the corner of a larger building in Poderone. It has two floors and a pretty, terracotta paved terrace which is furnished with a table and chairs for dining al fresco.
Inside the villa is a large open plan room with the kitchen area divided from the lounge area by a big, original terracotta arch. The kitchen is immediately off the terrace. It is fully equipped and includes an oven, fridge with separate freezer compartment and gas hobs. To one side is the wooden dining table with four chairs.
Passing under the arch there is the lounge which has two armchairs and a double sofa huddled around a fireplace perfect for the cooler Spring or Autumn days. Double doors on two sides of the lounge provide plenty of light and access to the garden. The entire room is paved with terracotta tiles and has the tradition Tuscan villa ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta tiles.
Terracotta stairs to the back of the kitchen lead to the first floor and sleeping area. At the top of the stairs is a small hall. Off here is a bathroom with bathtub and handheld shower. To one side is a bright twin bedroom. It is furnished with a chest of drawers. The window looks out across the garden and to the neighbouring villa.
Off the other side of the hall is the lovely double bedroom. It is furnished with a good wooden double bed and a large wardrobe with two mirrors along one wall. The window looks out to the garden and the views of the surrounding Tuscan countryside.
Due to it's position, Albicocco has some privacy. The garden area is protected from view from the neighbouring building by a hedge, while it can be seen from the two immediate neighbours. The twin room cannot  be made into a double.

There is an extensive DVD collection and a selection of novels and books on Italian culture and history available for the guests enjoyment.

Location: Poderone


Il Poderone is in the Maremma, an area of Southern Tuscany renowned for its original and wild landscapes. The hamlet Il Poderone consists of 9 independent villas each restored to an excellent standard.


There is an oval swimming pool located on one side of the property. It has excellent views of the surrounding hills and valleys dotted with prestigious villas and quaint towns.

Poderone lays in a beautiful position with excellent views of the rolling Tuscan hills and valleys around. There is free parking for all the guests of the hamlet within the property and there are no unpaved roads on the way to the location.
Hamlet Poderone is the perfect place from which to explore both the mountains and seaside. The coast offers gentle beaches, natural parks, fishing villages, resort towns all facing the clear waters of the Gulf of Argentario in the Mediterranean sea. The famous hot springs of Saturnia are thirty minute's drive away.Click here to see a story about the area in the Daily Mail.
Poderone is the ideal starting point for trips to the sea, Monte Amiata, the Southern wine country and the 'Tufo triangle' towns Pitigliano, Sovana and Sorano, all within a fifty-minute drive.
The Castello di Triana which can be seen from the hamlet is 6kms from the town of Roccalbegna. It sits on a rocky promontory and is enclosed by medieval stone walls, which are still in remarkably good condition. Outside the walls is the church of San Bernardino alla Triana. The castle is approxiamately 1km from the hamlet, so it is possible to walk there.


At Monte Amiata it is possible to go skiing during the winter and walking during summer.

Pool Info




The pool is located to one side of the property, nestled in a lovely sunny position with excellent views of the rolling Tuscan hills and valleys around. The setting is perfect for relaxing in the warm Tuscan sunshine.



The pool is shared between the villas and has a surrounding terrace furnished with sun beds; to one side there are changing rooms with showers and bathrooms. 
The pool is oval shaped. It is 14x4 meters and it is 1.30 meters to 1.60 deep and open from May to September.

Marina di Grosseto is less than one hour by car away from the "Tufo triangle" towns Pitigliano, Sovana and Sorano, the well-known Saturnia Spa and from Montalcino, famous for its Brunello red wine. It offers a wide range of sport facilities: outdoor activities include riding, hiking, biking, fishing, rollerskating, windsurfing and tennis.From Roccalbegna it is possible to reach the beautiful Monte Argentario area in 1 hour.The extraordinary promontory of Monte Argentario with its small coves and bays, is considered by dedicated scuba divers to be one of the most interesting zones in Italy for the abundance of fish and a sea bed rich in coral and shells. It is a large and hilly promontory in southern Tuscany. The area has a nature reserve and some relatively unspoilt beaches. There are two pretty harbour/resort towns at Monte Argentario which make good holiday bases: Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole. Porto Santo Stefano is on the northern side of the promontory, and is the largest town. Porto Ercole faces south, and is a small and pretty harbour settlement.

Pros Es ist eine schöne Anlage mit Stil und Atmosphäre, das beeindruckt.
Zum Entspannen ideal.
Die Gegend, wenn man die Berge der Toskana mag, ist reizvoll und bietet viele Ausflugsmöglichkeiten.
Ein Auto ist allerdings fast unabdingbar.
Cons Es liegt schon ziemlich abgelegen. Zum Meer ist es ziemlich weit, dass muss man wissen und die Planung auf die nähere Umgebung einstellen. Wenn in den Unterlagen 'Espressomaschine' steht, geht man davon aus, sie sei für die Kapazität der Wohneiheit (4 Personen) geeignet. Das man dann vor einem Gerät steht, das zwei Durchläufe braucht, damit alle was haben, musss einfach nicht sein. Da ist am falschen Ende gespart....
Local attractions Pitilgano, Saturnia, Castel del Piano, Siena, Il Guardino del Tarocchi, Wanderung auf den Mte Labro, es gibt einfach viel zu entdecken.
