La Rocca

Experience Tuscany as it might have been some thirty years back in a beautiful romantic medieval village located in a wildlife reserve half way between the Monte Amiata and the hot springs of Saturnia

Roccalbegna is a small Tuscan village dating back to the 9th century, located in the Maremma countryside adjacent to the stream of Albegna, halfway between Siena and the sea. The town has been built around a fortified castle and played a strategic role for trade and travel between Siena and the Mediterranean Sea. In Roccalbegna one breathes in the charming, romantic atmosphere of the past. It is an ideal location for excursions to the many Etruscan sites nearby, such as Sovana, Sorano, Pitigliano as well as to the hot springs of Saturnia. Roccalbegna offers all daily life amenities like groceries, butcher, restaurants and pharmacy.
Beside the cultural and gastronomic attractions of the area there are many nature related activities to be enjoyed ranging from hikes to mountainbike-tours and horse-riding. The nearby wildlife reserve "Bosco Rocconi" offers guided tours through the river-valley.

The house is situated in the outskirts of the village in a building that was previously used as a barn with stables. It has been recently renovated and transformed into a comfortable and romantic home. It features typical traditional local materials such as handmade terracotta tile floors, wooden ceilings and marble bathrooms.
