A dream come true
Reverse course from city to country.
The farmhouse Borgo de 'Salaioli
situated on the ancient salt route, through the hills of Maremma, leading from Scansano (6 miles) at the sea of Argentario (22 km).
is a few kilometers from the city of Grosseto (35), the thermal baths of Saturnia (17), Etruscan excavations of Sovana (35) and Roselle (35).
vineyards and olive groves, Roman and Etruscan ruins, medieval villages perched on hills.
several recently restored stone cottages, built in the nineteenth century to compose a small village, currently composed of four large rooms with three or four beds, each in a stand-alone buildings, an apartment, a kitchen available to the rooms, a large garden with a covered pergola with barbecue, as well as the dwelling of the owner.
Borgo de 'Salaioli was born in 1980 from the dream of Arrigo and Furica (and later our son Giacomo) to start a life together, escaping the fast pace of the city and trying to build a structure in balance with nature, respecting culture and traditions of Tuscan architecture.
In 1996 the farm was born not only as a means to enhance the existing and no longer used buildings, but also to share with other people the culture and lifestyle of Tuscany and the Maremma, which can not be appreciated with a modern holiday hit and run, but require a slower tempo.
The climate is always tempered by the proximity of the sea, is characterized by cool and breezy summers and mild winters with moderate rainfall and makes the land incredibly suitable for the vineyard and the production of the famous red wine Morellino.
Our stay at Salaioli Hamlet Farm Holidays was very nice. It is low season for tourists so we were the only guests. The location is very rural but not far from the town of Scansano which is very interesting and beautiful. We had a rental car and drove easily around Tuscany and visited many wonderful historical towns. The accommodations in a private room with shower, toilet and sink was clean and comfortable. The host and his wife were very kind and friendly to us. My husband especially enjoyed the tour of the farm that Arrigo offered.
very good week, in the place of Arigo !
Around the olive tree and the colline of Scansano. Very good place for rest and discover La Maremma !
Arigo is verry interested man cultive olives and verry nice, good talk with Arigo ;
After 3 days in this i'm in full in love of Scansano and the place of Arrigo .

Arrigo is fantastic host. Helped us with recogition all Maremma region. Tips for restaurant( visit cards), cheese and wine productions, Saturnia nature spa, beaches...how to go there best way.And all was fantastic.

Agriturismo borgo Salaioli is the perfect place to visit Maremma. The accommodation is deep in the green hills, close to pretty villages (borghi) but at the same time very far from main roads. In less than half an hour you can get to the coast with wonderful beaches and natural parks. Arrigo is an excellent guest, full of suggestions, he treated us with hand made jams and fresh bread. Highly suggested!
We spend a wonderful week at Arrigo. He and all of his family are very nice.
The farmhouse also absolutely good. It was a real "toscan" holiday like in the films. Thank you again Arrigo, I hope we will meet soon.
We had a great stay at Arrigo's farm. The view is excellent, the room was nice and clean. Arrigo himself was always ready to help and prepared good breakfast!
Cadre trés reposant. Arrigo est très avenant. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour. Les petits déjeuners sont servis sur une belle terrasse avec une vue magnifique. Nous avons gouté les confitures et gâteaux faits maison et avons beaucoup discuté (en anglais) avec Arrigo qui nous a conseillé sur les visites à faire dans la région.
A conseiller si vous passez dans la région.
We had wonderful time in Borgo de Salaioli. Arrigo and his family are very good host. They are very friendly and help you if needed. As a local Arrigo recommended us a lot of interessting things. For instance to go to Saturnia at fullmoon. The place itself is perfect to relax and has a wonderful view. Me and my girlfriend highly recommend staying at Borgo de Salaioli.
Me and my boyfriend had wonderful time in Borgo de Salaioli. Arrigo and his family are very friendly. On the day we came they even invited as to join them for a dinner, even though they didn't need to (we came quite late and we were tired after driving whole day).
The place itself is really nice and quiet. It's situated not far away from Scansano, it's a good spot to go to the seaside, Saturnia and Sovana.
The cottage looks exactly as on the photos. We had an access to the common kitchen and BBQ. The breakfast is served on the terrace with beautiful view. I wish we could stay longer.
We highly recommend staying at Borgo de Salaioli.
Our stay at Arrigo and Furica's place was the best part of our trip. Their farm is in a beautiful place!
Orso (their dog) is very friendly and loves to be pet.
Arrigo and Furica made us fell like home. This place is a dream! Great house, more 150years old, completely renovated.
Cherry trees, olive trees, grapes, herbs, artichokes... It was like a playground for a chef like me!
We wanna come back some day and will recommend this precious place to all our friends that are coming to Tuscany!
All the best! Ciao
