Hotel Tuscany Maremma

Hotel B&B Tuscany Maremma

The area of Maremma is situated in the hearth of the Tuscany region, in the center of Italy, in the province of Grosseto and Viterbo. Between the most important touristic locality of Maremma we can remember Grosseto, Orbetello, Castiglione della Pescaia, Follonica, Massa Marittima, Scarlino, the Punta Ala promontory, Magliano in Toscana, the Uccellina natural park, Manciano, Roccastrada, Ansedonia and Capalbio.

A tourist can't help being enthralled by the history he sees embodied all around him in the old town centers, single monuments and works of art. A sense of the past rises from the paving stones, waves froma the bell towers and emanates from the walls of buildings and churches. Many of these churches date from the 13th century and where later re-elaborated in the Neo Gothic style and decorated with frescos of the famous Sienese school during the 14th and 15th centiries.

Castles and farmhouses belong to a medieval architectural tradition that figures among the most important in the Maremma. Traces of old military structures are still visible in the remains of citadels and protective walls, demostrating the importance of these villages as difensive bastions. This was true, not only for the feudal lords, the Aldobrandeschi, but also for their successors, from the Sienese to the Medici and the Lorraine, all of whom continued to increase the cultural heritage with restorations and enlargments that can still be seen today.

Numbers of fortified settlements punctuate the landscape: the 16th century castle in Porrona, the massive stone fortress, the Cassero di Cinigiano, the castle in Pari with sections of the Medieval enclosing wall and the two small fortresses in Montorsaio, documented as far back as the 12th century, and the one in Stertignano with prominent walls enclosing a rustic structure, near the locality of Marrucheti.

The wholesome and extraorinary flavours and aromas of the Maremma cousine seem to reproduce all of the flvours and aromas of the land. L'acquacotta, la zuppa di pane (soups), il buglione (marinated lamb), la scottiglia of lamb and chicken, wild boar in sauce are a few of most typical recipes that still keep their old time flavours.

The dining table tells the story of a land whose secular olive trees produce fine oil and whose vineyards produce esteemed wines. Grapes were grown here thousand of years ago and the winemarking tradition has lasted through our time. It has become an art that has produced Morellino, one of the best-known wines in Italy.
The same art has now produced Montecucco with its distinctive flavours, the latest wine born on these mountain slopes. Fairs, pageants and festivities throughout the year offer the perfect chance for sampling meats preparated with simplicity and refinement, genuine cheeses, garlic breads, vegetables and mushrooms so prominent in local and last, dishes and least, delicious chestnuts.

The area including the province of Grosseto is widely known as Maremma (from the Spanish word 'marismas' - marsh).
Till a century ago Maremma was a marshy and unhealthy land; its natural and wonderful habitat has been preserved throughout the centuries, being still intact and unspoiled today, far from any kind of industrialization or a wild use of cement.
Maremma is a mixture of sea, pine woods, mediterranean maquis and marsh, sunny plains and mild hills: a wild landscape marked by the contrast between impenetrable maquis and tilled fields, hills where man has been working hard and harsh mountains.
Your sight could wander anywhere in this district and, always, you will disover a picturesque and charming scenery where man has been able to live in perfect harmony with nature.

The history of Maremma begins with the Etruscans, the legendary people who dominated Etruria for seven centuries (from the Xth to the III rd century B.C.), the whole Tuscany and, in periods of great splendour, most central Italy. Maremma was the centre of etruscan military power thanks to the position of the two "lucumonie" : Vetulonia and Roselle; the small towns and the ports of Caletra, Heba, Talamone and Porto Ercole.
In 280 B.C. Rome defeated the Etruscans so starting that process of decay (Barbarian invasions, Longobard domination and, in the middle age, the seignoiry of the Counts Aldobrandeschi; the domination of Siena and Florence) which marked the fortune of Maremma up to the establishment of the supremacy of the Lorenas. The marshes, typical of Maremma landscape, were first drained in he XVII th century when Maremma belonged to the Granduchy of Tuscany; land drainage, carried out through centuries, made possible the repopulation of the place as well as its use for agriculture since the beginning of XXth century.

Anyone who comes here knows that extraordinary encounters with the animal and plant world are everyday occurrences in this environment. A visit to an animal reserve makes such an encounter almost inevitable. There are two major protected areas within the territory with a combination of Mediterranean scrub and forests of tall trees offering protection for important animal species. The Riserva Naturale del Basso Merse extends along the border between the provinces of Grosseto and Siena.

The hilly landscape is covered by forests of Turkey oaks, Holm oaks and White oaks and by low scrub sprinkled with Heather and Strawberry trees. Colonies of Hawks, Sparrow hawks and Short-toed eagles nest here and it's easy to spot Roe-deer and deer. The Otter, a species that risks extinction and is rarely found in Italy, still lives in this protected habitat.

The 434 hectares of the Riserva Naturale di Poggio all'Olmo extend around the town of Cinigiano. It is a valuable forest, typical of these high hills, with a large variety of animal life and secular plants like the majestic pear tree-monument that has an old legend associated with it. Wild boar are sure to accompany any walk through this area.
