La Ghiandaia is an extremely attractive property surrounded by huge grounds (approximately 30 hectares of land) located in the heart of the Maremma region, the wildest area of Southern Tuscany. It was acquired by a renowned Swiss film-maker who fell in love with the beautiful landscapes of the estate and decided to give new life to the farm, including production of natural wine and bio-dynamic 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 ever seen in Tuscany. Considering its superb panoramic position overlooking picturesque rolling hills that stretch to the Mediterranean coast, the owner decided to transform the pool area into an ideal setting for social events. On a side of the pool is a very large covered terrace, with a built-in cooking area with barbecue, fridge and sink for entertaining. The unusually large swimming pool (22x4,5 meters) includes two separate baths, a wading bath and a full size Jacuzzi and is heated by solar panels that make it enjoyable in Spring and Autumn. The whole property is an enchanting environment ideal for relaxing and enjoying magnificent views of the Tuscan countryside, or taking long walks through its fields, including up to a lovely cabana furnished with hammock placed on one of the most panoramic points on the estate. Despite its peaceful isolation the property is only at 4 km away from the medieval hamlet of Tatti and 30 minutes away from coastal resorts. The estate prides itself on its health and wellness — with its bio-dynamic gardens, one hundred percent natural wine, and solar-powered sustainability that allows it to create more energy than it uses every year. In keeping with this philosophy, house rules do no allow smoking inside the house at any time. Cooking service (for breakfast, lunch and dinner) and baby-sitting are available on request at extra cost.
