San Romito 2

Romantic apartment and roof terrace in Tuscan Olive Groves : Roccatederighi

Nice little touches

  • The Pieve has a long and interesting history over the last 1000 years and it is all told in the buildings themselves, this is a magical place to stay.

San Romito 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 San Romito.

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.

Reviews

“ Full of charm ”

Our introduction to San Romito was full of charm. The approach is through a private gate, with a short drive to an intriguing cluster of stone buildings. We were delighted by roses and spring flowers, glimpses of olive trees and water, and the genial welcome of our host, Emy. The apartment is on the first floor, with a comfortable living room, a small but useful kitchen, and a pleasant bedroom with shuttered windows. A large candle lit the downstairs entrance; roses and a complimentary bottle of wine greeted us in the apartment. There are pleasant walks around the extensive grounds of Pieve di Caminino, a working olive farm, and we were impressed by the tranquillity and harmony of the surroundings. We enjoyed Emy’s family museum, a fascinating collection of books, paintings (there were distinguished artists in the family), photographs and china, and of course, samples of the delicious olive oil, housed in what had once been a private chapel.

There is much to explore in the vicinity. Our all-too-brief stay included a visit to Roccastrada, like many hill towns apparently in decline, but with welcome signs of renovation and a panoramic view. Massa Marittima has a spectacular cathedral (look out for the wonderful fresco of the Adoration of the Magi), absorbing museums, and enticing shops and cafes. We discovered schiaccia olive and dolce in La Panetteria bread shop, and stocked up on herbal fragrances in Erboristeria del Corso. Nearer home, the excellent Co-op in Ribolla provided a range of domestic and gastronomic necessities.

Information about places to visit in the Maremma was available in the apartment and in Emy’s museum, along with details of local restaurants. Busy as he was with the farm and other guests, Emy was on hand to give help and advice as needed, and eager to make our stay as trouble-free as possible. A very big thank you, Emy, and Ci vediamo!
