La Ghiandaia is property with a main villa and a guest house in the heart of the Maremma region, the most unspoiled area of Southern Tuscany.
Surrounded by huge grounds (approximately 30 hectares of land), it was acquired by a renowned Swiss filmmaker, who fell in love with this beautiful estate. He decided to give the farm a new life, including the production of organic wine and biodynamic olive oil.
The imposing, original stone-built main building has been completely restored to the highest standards and furnished with all modern amenities -- such as a large professional kitchen and a steam-bath -- and is now available for rent.
A particular feature is the unique infinity swimming pool, definitely one of the best we have seen in Tuscany.
Given its fantastic position, overlooking the picturesque rolling hills stretching all the way to the Mediterranean coast, the owner decided to transform the pool area into the perfect setting for social events.
On one side of the pool is a very large covered terrace, which has a built-in outdoor cooking area complete with barbecue, fridge and sink.
In addition to the unusually large swimming pool (22x4,5 meters), a wading pool and a full size Jacuzzi are awaiting guests. The pool is heated by solar panels and can also be enjoyed in spring and autumn. Furthermore it can be closed giving full security for your small children and conserving better the temperature.
The whole property is an enchanting place, ideal for relaxing and enjoying the magnificent views over the Tuscan countryside. Long walks on its grounds, up to a lovely cabana with a hammock built on a panoramic spot, are also tempting.
Despite its peaceful location, the property is only 4 km away from the medieval hamlet of Tatti and a 30 minute drive from seaside resorts.
