Some good reasons to visit the Maremma!
Nature, sea and flavours. Here are three reasons - and there are certainly many more - for going to Maremma Toscana. This part of the country has always been famous for its unpolluted spaces and its wildlife, a place where there are still few signs of human interference apart from agriculture. In fact, the woods and pinewoods alternate with vineyards and olive groves, which paint the landscape in straight lines. In the reclaimed lands, hectares of cereals are growing and, at the right heights of Monte Amiata, the silhouettes of centuries-old chestnut trees stand out against the skyline.
Maremma is a lush land where wild boar and roe deer reign over the woodland undergrowth; you can easily glimpse a pheasant or a grey partridge suddenly taking flight even from the fields bordering the roads, and many other species still live here in relative tranquillity.
Maremma, however, is also the sea with a coastline rich in beaches and rocks, which has received many awards for its clean waters at Castiglione della Pescaia, the Argentario or the Island of Giglio, or is well known for its nature oases, such as the Parco dell'Uccellina or the Spiaggia di Alberese, where it is still possible to watch the famous Maremma cowboys hard at it, taming horses.
The Terme di Saturnia are now internationally famous, with their natural pools open to the public and their health centres and spas for the wellbeing of body and mind.
Yet another pleasure when visiting Maremma Grossetana is that of taste. Sitting at a table and tasting the genuine specialities of Maremma cuisine, accompanied by delicious local wines is an experience reminiscent of the past, recalling honest dishes cooked with products from the vegetable garden and game, hunted with respectful patience.
You can go for a walk in the many medieval villages, gazing at the beautiful old stone houses, and stop at one of the quiet squares for a snack or an ice cream.
Spending a holiday in Maremma is an experience rich in different impressions ranging from relaxation to sports, admiring nature to the discovery of new flavours, each experience unique and absolutely unforgettable!
