The space

Nice apartment with beams and terracotta floors in an old farmhouse built in tipical country style with stones from the area. Parts of it date back to the 17th century. A pitch road leads to the house. Drive prudently (it really is a pitch road!) The apartment has been renovated to maintain the original character and rustic charm. The house is sitting on a little hill surrounded by olive trees, meadows and woods outside the historic hillside village Campiglia Marittima. The village with its beautiful medieval center dates back to the year 1004. Only 15 minutes by car to the beach, 10 minutes to the thermal springs of Venturina (popular destination since Etruscan and Roman times), 3 hours to Rome, 2 hours to Florence, 1,5 hours to Siena .....

The apartment: 1 bedroom with twin beds, 1 bedroom with queen size bed, large living/dining room with TV (satellite), leather sofa, antique bed, piano, table with chairs and integrated kitchen, bathroom (not renovated) with small tub and shower. A folding bed for an additional guest is available, if necessary. Garden with pool, private outdoor seating, eating area and barbeque from where you have a beautiful view over Campiglia Marittima to the sea, the isle of Elba and San Vincenzo. The pool is shared with the guests of the other two apartments.

Final cleaning, fresh towels and linens are included. We will be happy to provide you with suggestions and recommendations for exploring Tuscany with its Etruscan sites, restaurant, beaches and much more. Or if you like we can also organize a sailing trip (1 day Euro 150.00)
Hope to see you soon!

We would like to point out that this is a generally positive review because we had a nice time in this apartment. The pros: the incredible view you enjoy from the garden; the quietness of the place; the dishwasher. The cons: 1)the road leading to the apartment: we know i…

Response from Monica:
If you read the other reviews it seems quite clear that it can't be as bad as described by Andrea. We have many guest who return every year. Nevertheless I'd like to give my view of certain points: 1) The street is a pitch road and bumpy but we can't do anything else than try to fix it at least once a month. After a day of rain we start all over again. It's not even our street. And being in a natural preserve we are not allowed to asphalt it. I drive a Peugeot 308 (lowered) and haven't had any problems so far. But still I agree it is a pitch road and one has to drive very slowly. 2) My husband cleans the pool once a day but we live in the countryside with sand and dust brought in by the wind. Sometimes from as far as the Sahara. I know the problem with the insects but it is almost impossible to eliminate it. We clean the pool and 10 minutes later there they are again. They seem to be very much attracted by the water. 3) Hot water isn't scarce. The boiler is not very big that's true but big enough for 4 people. So far we didn't have any complaints. But we assume that our guests are aware that in the south water has to be economized especially in summertime. And by the way, every apartment has its own boiler! 4) I've checked our advertisement. The decoration ist altered a bit. But this was mentioned in the written description. New fotos will be provided next month. The glass table was badly scratched. That's why we changed it. The old (not antique) bed wasn't very comfortable. And the piano never was in this apartment but in the one above (as described)! 5) I know the two women who clean the apartments. They are quite fussy where cleanliness is concerned. In an old farmhouse (part of it is over 300 years old) in the countryside you remove the spiderwebs with the vacuum cleaner (also on the lamps!) each time you clean. But the spiders build them again in no time. And why didn't they tell my husband? He could have called the cleaning ladies again if it were as bad as described by Andrea. 6)This is a holiday home and not a hotel. So we leave it up to our guests how they want to make their bed. In the southern way with upper sheets or the northern way just with a duvet. We've never had complaints about this point except the one time when I made the beds! 7)I wasn't there but my husband usually is a very welcoming host. He often invites our guest to barbecues, shows them around the village, brings them fresh vegetable from our garden. Could be he didn't explain everything but why not ask him? I think he didn't mention the pool because walking around the house you can't miss it. We usually provide one new roll of toilet paper assuming that our guests buy them together with provisions and other things. That they had to leave the apartment one hour earlier was not correct, I agree and I'd like to apologize. I'll talk to my husband about this. But I'm sure he asked them politely. Probably the cleaning ladies didn't have time later on. But still, it wasn't correct. I am a bit disappointed about the review especially knowing that many problems could have been solved by talking about them.

kind welcome and absolute respect of privacy during our staying. Typical ancient country home renovated, clean and well equipped (confortable slat queen-size beds, bed sheets are just single). Unconfortable dirt patch to reach it, but panorama from there is excellent. A generous …

Thank you for your kind and useful feedback. The upper sheets we usually do not use in our country any longer, but I'll buy some for the queen-size beds for next summer! In Switzerland we use light, flat duvets in summer, heavier ones in winter (without sheets underneath). It would be nice to see you again! Best wishes, Monica e Ruedi

Very nice casolare in Tuscany. There are a lot of animals, firefly, cicale silence, peace and green. The sunset is very romantic. Rudolf, the host, is very available and his fiche is very, very good. The hause is near the Campiglia (15 minutes by feet) but the street is very, …

La casa si è rivelata una vera oasi di pace nel cuore della campagna di Campiglia Marittima. Panorami e tramonti mozzafiato, silenzio e natura incontaminata. Il tutto a pochi minuti dal paesino di Campiglia Marittima, che è un posto strategico per via della vicinanza alle spiag…

Rudi ist ein sehr netter Gastgeber. Die Zufahrt war schlechter als erwartet, es ging aber gerade noch so. Ist aber schon mühsam, soll aber besser werden. Das Windrad am Hügel nervte mich nur die ersten zwei Tage. Ein sehr schöner Ort mit viel Sonne und toller Terrasse. Wir haben …
