Bifora 2

A romantic spot with a terrace overlooking olive groves

Nice little touches

  • The old monastery and 10th century church have a magical atmosphere - to be staying in the roof space of the medieval buildings feels particularly special

Good to know

  • If desired, the owner will book a table for you in a nearby restaurant for arrival night. During August, dinners or continental breakfasts may also be arranged on other days providing the owner has 24 hrs notice. Mountain bikes may be hired at 26 €uros per week (there is a 1 hour free trial).

Bifora is located in Pieve di Caminino, a little hamlet in the beautiful Maremma countryside between Roccastrada and Massa Marittima, is set in a natural, verdant amphitheatre, with enormous olive groves extending down from the wooded, rocky background towards the coast.

The charming and knowledgeable owners, who speak perfect English, have continued the cultivation of the olive groves started by their forefathers, and produce some of the most delicious olive oil in Italy. Their family history has long tradition of famous painters and architects. With excellent taste and skill they have converted the little hamlet into characteristic apartments and cottages for visitors, one of which is Bifora.

As well as the panoramic views, there are over 500 ha. of woodlands to explore, and an ornamental lake has lawns furnished for sunbathing, flowerbeds and a cooling sprinkler. Within 20 minutes' drive are thermal spas and hot waterfalls. The site for the swimming pool has been carefully chosen to protect the peace and architectural integrity of the hamlet.

The charges are generally per person per night with a maximum number of nights, usually around 5 but sometimes 7, beyond which they will not charge. The charges range between 50 cents to 3 euro.
