Il Chiesino, ‘the little church’, is a very nicely restored country home set in gentle hills behind one of Tuscany’s loveliest stretch of coastlines. Beautifully decorated in a warm, updated Tuscan style, each of the rooms enjoys tremendous views across lovely, pastoral countryside. High quality finishes are evident throughout but particularly in the very pretty kitchen and modern bathrooms. Air-conditioned bedrooms. Sitting rooms on three levels, including a charming, furnished wine cellar, provide plenty of space for everyone to spread out. There are outdoor options as well, with two loggias, a covered first floor balcony and a sunny terrace around the private swimming pool. On warm evenings, a delightful little barbeque house adjacent to the pool provides an alternative dining area, while the spa and the two hot tubs are unquestionably the ideal spots for relaxing and contemplating the famously clear and starry Maremma skies.

The Ombrone River bisects the Tuscan Maremma and some of the region’s loveliest beaches before meeting the sea in a vast, protected delta that can be explored by kayak and canoe. The nearest shops to the house are at Istia d’Ombrone, 5km/3 miles, with a broader choice just beyond at Grosseto, the Maremma’s largest town. A terrific restaurant for meat- and fish-lovers is closer at hand, 1.km/1 mile away. To the north are the remains of two Etruscan cities, Russelae and Vetulonia; to the south-east, the pretty hill town of Scansano, known for its red wine and olive oil, and to west and south, the beaches at Marina di Grosseto, 22km/14 miles, the glorious nature reserve of the Monti dell’Uccellina and the chic resort towns of the Monte Argentario peninsula.
