Nespola is a lovely semi-detached cottage with a private loggia and a garden on one side and a smaller terrace just in front of the main entrance that borders on neighbours' property.


Nespola rises in a dominant position on the top of a small promontory in the hamlet Poderone. This pretty villa overlooks the hamlet and from the terrace is visible the pool that lays about 50 mts from it. The villa has the traditional Tuscan terracotta flooring and wooden beamed ceiling.


The private loggia is fully furnished with a stone barbecue and a table with four comfortable chairs. This side of the villa is ideal to enjoy the best of the outdoors and to dine al fresco. There is a door from the lounge to the loggia. Nespola has external natural stone walls and a garden all around it.



Entering the lounge from the loggia there is, on the left hand side, a dining area with a table that seats four and a modern fully furnished kitchen.



On the opposite corner there is a sofa and an armchair next to the fireplace and a flat screen TV. On this side there is a very large window that provides the living room with a lot of light and a view towards the pool.



The lounge with its pretty view and fireplace is a perfect setting to relax inside the cottage during the cooler Tuscan evenings.



The modern kitchen, with a window above the workspace, includes a large fridge/freezer, stove with gas hobs, oven and a dishwasher. There is a large useful worktable in this room.


On the ground floor there is a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower. This bedroom has a small terrace with direct access to the garden. The villa has air-conditioning in every bedroom. A storeroom on the ground floor is equipped with a washer/dryer, ironing board and iron.



Next to the lounge a staircase leads to the first floor where there is a spacious bedroom with the traditional Tuscan wooden beamed ceiling and a second tastefully furnished bathroom with tub.

The ground floor bedroom can be made into a twin on request. If you do not request this when booking it will be a double.

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.

 

In about 1 hour drive you arrive at the Marina di Grosseto which is a lovely seaside resort that has a peaceful setting between the evergreen pine forest and the sandy beaches in the very heart of the Maremma, near the northern border of the Natural Reserve of the Maremma in the Uccellina hills. 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.

Cons Das Wasser im Pool war sehr kühl.

Pros De rust en de plek, een mooie bergachtige streek. Het huisje was netjes en schoon. Mooie badkamers en ruime slaapkamers.
Cons Misschien een beetje vergezocht maar we vonden de woonkamer van het huisje wat klein. Zeker bij slecht weer. We waren met vier volwassenen. Er waren drie comfortabele zitplaatsen. Ook is er geen afzuigkap in het huisje wat bij slecht weer niet prettig is. Nu konden we koken met het raam open.
Local attractions We vonden het dorpje Roccalbegna erg leuk en hebben daar ook twee keer gegeten. Een keer erg lekkere pizza's en een keer in de Albergo Locanda La Pietra. Gezellig terras, vriendelijke mensen en ontzettend lekkker eten. Een echte aanrader!

Pros Die Anlage lädt zur Entspannung und Erholung ein, der Pool war eine willkommene Abwechslung, der Ausblick und die Ruhe sind einmalig, die Ausstattung des Hauses war sehr gut - hat absolut nichts gefehlt.
Cons Die Möglichkeiten kleine Unternehmungen, Wanderungen udgl. sowie Restaurantbesuche oder Einkäufe sind ohne Auto sehr eingeschränkt. Die Grünflächen könnten etwas besser gepflegt werden.

Pros It is very comfortable and well equipped throughout. It was possible to find shade either at the front or side at all times of the day, which was important for us during a very hot fortnight. The views from Nespola are fantastic - we never got tired of looking at the scenery.
Cons The beds are far too low for the more mature person who is stiff in the morning to get up from!
Local attractions The Pietra in Roccalbegna serves interesting food in an attractive courtyard. Very friendly staff.
