Europe’s hidden coasts: the Maremma, Italy
Of course we also love the Amalfi coast and Capri, but unfortunately so do all tourist. The Tyrrhenian sea is packed with tourist in summer. However when you travel up north to the Tuscan beaches, you'll find a much less crowded but equally beautiful alternative near the rolling hills and romantic vineyards of Southern Tuscany. Come and discover the wilde beaches and untouched fisherman villages with their laidback charm with us!

The Terme di Saturnia date from Roman times. Hot water (37°) springs from a volcanic crater and supplies the nearby spa pool and from there it flows along a natural stream for about 500 m where a drop forms a waterfall which rushes past the old mill and then goes on to form a series of natural, calcium-terrace pools. These beautiful falls are known as the Cascate del Mulino and the Cascate del Gorello. They are only 2 km from the village of Saturnia and entrance is free.
Activities Cala di Cacciarella
Immersed in nature and accessible by sea or by hiking trail, Cala di Cacciarella is one of the most beautiful and wild corners of the Tuscan coast. Located on the side of Porto Santo Stefano. a perfect location to lose track of time as the hours roll by.

This little village carved out of tufa stone (which is actually the same stone used at the lower level of Villa Maremma) is definitely worth a trip!
Restaurants Orbetello at I Pescatori
There hardly is a better place to be seated than at I Pescatoria overlooking the sea in Orbetello. When dining at this restaurant, rest assured that your fish has been freshly and sustainably caught nearby by one of the fishermen of the local fishing cooperative, Cooperativa La Peschereccia, which was founded in 1943. Be sure to try the bottarga (salted fish eggs), a specialty of the area, which is delicious grated over pasta!Call
Ampeleia, a winery in Roccatederighi, produces according to biodynamic farming practices that work in harmony with the land and emphasize the one-of-a-kind characteristics of this particular part of Maremma. Wherever you are, the creative, colorful labels wrapped around Ampeleia’s bottles make the drinking experience delightful even before the wine has been poured, but if you have a chance, it is well worth a visit to see the vineyards and taste the wine where it is made. If you’re looking to take home a Tuscan red, try their signature Ampeleia wine, made with 100% Cabernet Franc.Call Website
