What to do at Monteverdi
Close to most of Tuscany’s famous sites and cities, including Siena, Florence, Arezzo and San Gimignano, Monteverdi is also close to smaller but equally spectacular historic towns such as Montalcino, Pienza, Pittigliano, Magliano, Capablio and Porto Ercole, whilst not forgetting historic attractions such as Rusellae, Sant’ Antimo, San Galgano and San Rabano. Alternatives to site-seeing include wine-tasting in one of the greatest wine regions in the world, in particular, Brunello, Chianti, Morellino di Scansano, swimming in the clear sea off the long, clean and unspoilt beaches of the Maremma and the Tuscan Archipelago, and visiting the natural hot sulphur springs such as at Petriolo and Saturnia, Bagno Vignone and Bagni di San Filippo just like the ancient Romans used to do. For day trips to Rome, fast trains leave Grosseto frequently, and in an hour and a half you can be in central Rome, while Pisa is an hour by train.
Other possible activities within a short drive include; riding with the butteri (cowboys) in the Parco della Maremma, long walks (or skiing in winter) on Tuscany’s highest volcano, Monte Amiata, visiting a buffalo mozzarella farm, tennis, canoeing, yoga, and much more.
Of course you may just want to relax at Monteverdi by the pool, read somewhere in the large garden or have a siesta in a hammock; the estate, at over 1000 hectares, provides ample routes for walks, through fields, forests and along the Ombrone river.
The local village of Paganico offers all the basic amenities, including banks, a chemist, a post office, a supermarket and all the typical shops one might need. Full information is provided to guests on arrival.
Both the family and staff at Monteverdi will be happy to help you organise anything you might be interested in doing.
