FARM HOLIDAYS AND HOLIDAY HOME
Pian Del Vescovo offers you a new kind of country holiday in a family business deep in the Maremma district of Tuscany. Pian Del Vescovo offers four apartments in two buildings, with room for 18/20 visitors in total. A whirlpool swimming pool is also available.
3 kilometers away is the town of Massa Marittima. Its medieval centre charms every visitor, and the cathedral square has admirers all over Europe. You will find our two houses on a sweep of lush plain (hence the Pian in the name, which is short for pianura, a plain). Medieval and Renaissance sources show that Pian Del Vescovo was built on the remains of the bishop of Massa and Populonia’s former residence. This explains the other part of the name (Vescovo = bishop).
The complex has been completely refurbished. It consists of four apartments in two buildings: 3 apartments each with 2 rooms (c. 45 sq m) for up to four people are in one of the buildings. The second building, the Casa Padronale (manor house; c. 75 sq m) can be used in a number of ways: it can accommodate single visitors, couples and families, up to groups of 6, 8 or even 10 people.
The buildings appeal because of their beautiful architecture and furniture. The surrounding area is very beautiful as well. The estate is set in a narrow strip of land about 15 m wide between the sea and the hills, and offers visitors countless opportunities for exploring this part of Tuscany’s Maremma district – and to watch the storks in flight.
Walks along the rivers Pecora and Cornia, a fascinating trip into the Parco Minerario (mineral park) or rambling in search of the old mines in the Terra dell’Argento take visitors to the remotest little villages in the Colline Metallifere (mineral-bearing hills) with their typical houses and alleyways.
In a few minutes you are at the Gulf of Follonica or the Lago dell’Accesa, a volcanic lake, or at Monte Cornate. Not forgetting of course the historic town of Massa Marittima, which you should allow plenty of time to see. It offers many events in summer, starting with crossbow shooting in historical costumes and ending up with night-time opera performances in the cathedral square.
