Toscana - Grosseto - MANCIANO

Description:

PRIVATE STRUCTURE (lease only). Quercia Felice (Happy Oak) is characterised by the typical details of Tuscan houses such as terracotta floors and exposed ceiling beams with influences and touches of Provençal style. The choice of pastel colours for the walls and finishing touches projects the guest into a warm, welcoming and relaxing environment. Quercia Felice is located in a 7-hectare property located in the municipality of Manciano in the Tuscan Maremma, not far from Capalbio and Monte Argentario, in a countryside of unique scenery offering many opportunities for those who love horse riding, walking, jogging and mountain biking, with specific routes for each activity. The area is famous for its numerous opportunities, allowing you to range from the naturalistic beauties of Monte Amiata to those dedicated to relaxation, given the proximity to the Terme di Saturnia and the Tyrrhenian coast of Monte Argentario, just 40 minutes away, passing through food and wine routes and itineraries rich in history, as evidenced by the numerous destinations of archaeological interest. The area is full of restaurants and trattorias offering typical cuisine and the flavours of yesteryear, with Tuscan products known all over the world including extra virgin olive oil, DOP (Protected Denomination of Origin) wines and the production of pecorino cheese (sheep's cheese) from various types of milk and different aging. When you arrive at Quercia Felice, you are greeted by a cypress-lined avenue that leads to the 6-car parking area covered by a pergola, to the garden with lawn and large flower beds and to the olive grove with 700 olive trees from which an excellent organic extra virgin olive oil is produced. Quercia Felice is the ideal choice for those families or groups of friends who wish to spend an unforgettable holiday immersed in the relaxation of the Tuscan countryside while having the opportunity for exploring ideas, itineraries and activities. N.B. The owner lives in an annex within the park and is at the complete disposal of guests as property manager of the structure. When the property is rented in this solution no other guests will be present on site.

TO DO

Location and distances


In ancient times Manciano was one of the main Etruscan cities in the area between Tuscany and Lazio and in the surrounding area you can visit numerous archaeological sites such as Tuscania, Cerveteri, Blera, Vulci, Barbarano, Vetulonia and Roselle, as well as the Roman ruins of the city of Cosa. In addition to archaeological excursions, Quercia Felice is an excellent departure point for exploring the delightful towns of Orbetello, Montemerano, Sovana, Sorano and Pitigliano. The sea is easily accessible: Monte Argentario, with Porto Ercole and the beautiful beach of Feniglia, as well as Porto Santo Stefano, is about an hour away by car. This stretch of Tuscan coast is also considered a paradise for those who practise diving. In addition, boats depart daily from Porto Santo Stefano to visit the islands of the enchanting Tuscan archipelago: the island of Giglio and the island of Giannutri. Continuing along this stretch of Tuscan coast, you come to well-known seaside resorts such as Capalbio, Ansedonia and Talamone, as well as the WWF oasis of Burano which, with its 410 hectares, lake and protected species that inhabit it, is a wonderful wild place to visit. Lake Bolsena is also easily accessible: it is the largest lake in Europe of volcanic origin, renowned for its enchanting towns, villages and landscapes. The Manciano area is famous for its thermal waters: Saturnia and Sorano have spas equipped with all comforts and with their sulphurous waters they are universally known as beneficial for the body. In Saturnia, a few minutes from the villa, is a new and beautiful 18-hole golf course, considered by aficionados as one of the most difficult. Another choice for golfers is the Argentario Golf Club course where you can play immersed in a protected nature area.
