Location

The tower is located near Talamone (Grosseto), in Maremma, the area in southern Tuscany embraced by the range of Colline Metallifere, Orbetello hills, Mount Amiata and the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Maremma, which in the past was inhabited by the Etruscans and Romans, is rich in archaeological sites (including the Etruscan necropolises of Populonia and Vetulonia), incredible nature beauties (such as the wonderful tufa towns built on sheer rocks) and nature reserves (including the renowned Parco dell'Uccellina, Diaccia Botrona reserve and the two Orbetello lagoon nature reserves).

Its marvellous beaches and famous thermal resorts Saturnia and Petriolo make Maremma the ideal holiday destination for many tourists every year, but the region is renowned for its food-and-wine specialities as well. A stay at the tower may offer the opportunity to taste traditional wild-boar dishes and the ham, botargo and pecorino cheese produced in the region, washing them down with some Morellino di Scansano or some Sassicaia.
