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.
