Overview

About the property

Around the manor there are five with loving care renovated and redecorated houses, 2 of them are here (pictures)! Pure nature is offered by the property and its surroundings with lots of opportunities to recover. Our sportive guests are able to reconnoitre and enjoy the great landscape with our horses, by bike or just by foot. If you wish peace and rest, culture or sports - here you get your freedom. Each house is furnished with loving care and comfortably. Here you will find the time to live with all your heart: you can grab some fresh eggs out of the hen coop, you can sit in the middle of the lavender field in order to enjoy the odour and the colour of this soothing plant, you can be in the stables with the horses or, i.e., even have a ride out in order to get some breakfast in Boccheggiano, you can sit at the camp fire in the evening and lots more.

Special Features : You can have fun at the playground or enjoy the nature and its animals - rabbits, very nice cats, our dog Pancio, hens and of course our horses with which you don’t have to be afraid about your childrens’ sake. There is a lane for playing Boccia in the shadow of the trees. You can also play kicker or some outdoor chess with very big chess figures which we are working on at the moment. A pizza oven and a big barbecue area are available. You can also have breakfast brought to your house, but this should be booked. Offers during the year: cooking with Melanie in the evening, nice evenings drinking wine, there are courses (in May) where you learn how to paint, you can learn how to make pasta and easily learn speaking Italian by doing so! It is possible to get a massage in the middle of the lavender field! The lake ‘Lago del Accesa’ is 20 km away and the river ‘Merse’ with its romantic and hidden waterfalls and basins is about 10 km away. The sea with its lovely beaches is 40 km away.

The surroundings of Rocca Prataia: Here you will find the time to live with all your heart! You can enjoy the hospitality and the good food of the Tuscan people – everything seems to be absolutely easy and at ease, because here in the Toscana the time seems to stand almost still. We wish you to have lots of fun with making your plans! There are lots of sights, closer to us such as, e.g.: Massa Marittima, San Gimignano, San Galgano, lots of excavations of the Etruskans such as Vetulonia und Rosselle, hot springs of Saturnia and Petriolo, Gavorrano with its museum about mines and many small picturesque and medieval villages.

Riding and Cycling: The dream of all the walkers and mountain bikers: the paths that are close to us are marked and there is an extra map for walkers. It is the ideal place for people with the spirit of enterprise. The idyllic per courses in our area are suitable for racing cyclists as well as for capable bikers. For the racing cyclists the Tuscan Maremma has lots of variety: You can choose which kind of way you prefer - flat, hilly or mountains - just choose which kind of degree of difficulty you like. There is a great landscape and the streets are not busy. The habitants are very friendly and the infrastructure is fantastic (café, trattorias etc.). Riding lessons are offered or you can sit on the horse just for the fun of it. With our 6 horses and our riding teacher Melanie, the first contact with the horse will be easy and relaxing for everyone. For those who can ride already we organize great ride outs: 1 hour ride outs, ride outs to Boccheggiano in order to get some bread or zonzelle for breakfast.

Podere Rocca Prataia is embedded in the peaceful hills of the Alta Maremma not far away from the sea. You will find this little oasis of peace and rest and well-being between the picturesque villages Boccheggiano and Roccatederighi. It is ideal for everyone who enjoys rest and peace, culture and sports. The next village – the medieval Roccatederighi - is about 7 km away and offers, apart from the nice old town, the opportunity to do some shopping or to go to a good restaurant. Here you can expect lots of opportunities to some outings – up from small and unknown villages and excavations of the Etruscans to charming towns like Massa Marittima, San Gimignano, Siena, Florence etc. The sea with its lovely beaches is only 40 km away from the manor.

Other Activities: Boccia, football, trekking ride outs, playing with a very big chess “board”
