Scuderia 2

A romantic cottage with a four poster bed

Nice little touches

  • The setting is magical. The ex-monastery started life as a hermits dwelling over a 1000 years ago. Since then it has been monastery, convent, fortress and farm; today that history resonates through the stones of the buildings and gives it a special feeling.

Good to know

  • There are other apartments here, but the layout means that each apartment still feels private. The pool is a walk away from the buildings so is also private.

A large romantic apartment, focused on a beautiful four poster bed under the arched spaces of one of the old agricultural buildings in this ex-monastery, this is the perfect place to relax. With a sitting room inside and an enormous covered loggia outside, there is plenty of space for comfort, and the swimming pool is a short walk down the hill.

Scuderia is located in Pieve di Caminino, a little hamlet in the beautiful Maremma countryside between Roccastrada and Massa Marittima, is set in a natural, verdant amphitheatre, with enormous olive groves extending down from the wooded, rocky backgr...

wn from the wooded, rocky background towards the coast.

The charming and knowledgeable owners, who speak perfect English, have continued the cultivation of the olive groves started by their forefathers, and produce some of the most delicious olive oil in Italy. Their family history has long tradition of famous painters and architects. With excellent taste and skill they have converted the little hamlet into characteristic apartments and cottages for visitors, one of which is Scuderia.

“ ....it couldn't have been more charming ”

We had an extraordinary time — it couldn't have been more charming. We are utterly in love with Pieve, Emiliano, the whole family. Thank you so very very much for your insights and tips and for completely understanding what we were looking for for this bohemian elegance and relaxation palace. We hope to be back!
