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.
Pian Del Vescovo offers 4 apartments, in two houses: 3 apartments are in the Casolare del Vescovo (Bishop’s House), and a large set of rooms in the other building, the Casolare del Viandante (Wanderer’s House).
All apartments have separate entrances and a spacious porch. They each have a well-equipped kitchen, satellite televisions and central heating, in short, everything for our guests’ independence and comfort.
The apartments have been very carefully restored. They convey the atmosphere of a typical Tuscan farmhouse, with terracotta floors and rustic peasant furniture.
All guests at Pian Del Vescovo can use the swimming pool free of charge.
The apartement of
CASOLARE DEL VESCOVO
There are 3 apartments in the Bishop’s House, the CASA DELL’ALBA (Dawn Apartment), the CASA DELL’OMBRA (Shady Apartment) and the CASA DEL SOLE (Sun Apartment). Each apartment has 2 rooms, occupies 45 sq m, and can accommodate up to 4 people.
They are essentially identical: each has a spacious living room (22 sq m) with a fitted kitchen, a large bedroom (15 sq m) with a double bed and a bathroom (5 sq m).
CASOLARE DEL VIANDANTE
The Manor House offers the Casolare del Viandante (Wanderer’s House), and occupies an area of 75 sq m. It can be used in a variety of ways: individuals, couples, families and groups of 6 to 8 people (even 10 people, if need be). The Casolare del Viandante is immediately opposite the swimming pool.
The Casolare del Viandante actually contains 2 apartments with a large communal living room. Each of the two apartments has a separate entrance, and so they could be used separately if wished. They are arranged in mirror image, with a large bedroom (15 sq m) and bathroom (5 sq m). The kitchen is also in the communal living room. Both apartments and the living room have satellite television.
When available, a single apartment with an area of 20 sq m can be booked in the Casolare del Viandante, consisting of a single room with bathroom, but no kitchen.
