  • 500 words are absolutely not enough to describe my delight from the best holiday ever I have just had at Torre di Maremma. I have spent more then a month at Patrizia's house and adored it so much that decided to stay at Torre for 20 more days. (I would have stayed there for September if I only could!) My family, three generations presented, enjoyed every minute and will cherish sweetest memories of this summer during our lo-o-ong winter evenings.

    This place is a perfect combination of services usualy provided by the hotels with the advantages of private house accommodation. You can be as socially active as you like and enjoy your privacy simultaneously.

    Our initial expectations were way exceeded. The photos cannot reflect how heavenly nice is the park kept. Communal infrastructure ( pools, fields, playgrounds) – excellently maintained. Animation program for children – great – children were kept busy all day long: bikes, beach, pool, discos (twice a day), crafts and other activities.There are enough activities for every age.

    The house is excellently, very functionaly equipped and nicely decorated. There was everything we needed and nothing excessive at the same time.

    Torre di Maremma has such a great landscape that you do not feel the heat in summer even when temperatures in Rome and Florence excede 40 C. There is always a light wind near the swimming-pool and on the beach (which is by the way backed up with a pinewood). Ground floor and patio are always chilly. We did not use air-conditioner during 2 hottest summer months at all.

    Geographic location is very advatageus for traveling – 1h15 to Rome, about 3h to Florence, 5-6h to Venice. Great opportunity to explore Southern Toscany. Patrizia will give you fantastic tips on how to spend your time.

    Gastronomic delight is guaranteed, however, personally I enjoyed most of all fresh fruit and vegetables from nearby farmers. Fresh fish and seafood from the local Marina was great too. Ah, and home-made ice-(email hidden)!

    Torre is untouched by the international tourism, it is a place where you can plounge in the genuine Italian atmosphere and enjoy local hospitality.

    Speaking about hospitality – Patrizia not only shared her beautiful house with us, she generously shared her soul, her lifestile, her frends – which is really priceless. Patrizia prepared our vacation in the best possible way, she thought through all the nuances in advance. Not only Torre, but nearby towns Montalto di Castro and Montalto Marina were greating us as precious guests! Patrizia's friend from Montalto – Luca - took care of any needs of ours. Valentina, Patrizia's elder doughter (7 y.o.), met us on our arrival, she embraced my daughter (6 y.o.), showed her around and took all her worries away – there are no barriers for friendship even if people do not speak common language. Thanks to these open-hearted, kind people we felt at home… and even better)))

  • We stayed at the lovely holidayhome of Patrizia and Fabrizio and her family and had a wonderful time. Patrizia and Fabrizio are very warm and hospitable hosts and made us feel at home right away. When we arrived they showed us around the area and gave us good tips for restaurants, shops and sightseeing. The house is well equipped, especially for small children. The park is well maintained and there are plenty of ways to enjoy activities. For example the playground and the tenniscourts were wonderful. Patrizia and Fabrizia also have tennisrackets available for example and things to use at the beach. For all ages there are bikes which can be used to ride to the private beach closeby. During our stay at springtime the park was really quiet and the smell of the flowers were soothing. We'll probably be back soon, Patrizia and Fabrizia will make sure you have a great holiday and feel at home. If you need tips for playing tennis while the kids are sleeping feel free to cantact us.
    Cheers, Machteld and Marijn

About
Hi, I'm Pat, I live in Rome with my husband and our two daughters. My family and I love to travel and make new friends from all over the world. I speak English, Spanish and of course Italian! Near our Rome home, we offer a studio and a small apt for rent minutes away from the Vatican. We also have a vacation home in Torre di Maremma, which we offer here. We invite you to enjoy our lovely, family-oriented vacation home, perfectly situated between the beach and the park—and 15 minutes from a fascinating ancient Etruscan archeological site. We look forward to welcoming your family to what we hope will become your Italian holiday home-away-from-home! Pat
