Fattoria di Peruzzo, Podere Serratina, Appartamento I Cipressi
The apartment I Cipressi is named after the row of cypress trees that are on the front lawn that like a terrace looks out onto Maremma offering a view of enormous charm.
The apartment is all on one floor at garden level. From the front door you go into the living-dinning room area, there is a big open fireplace and a cooking area with an electric oven, 4 gas rings and a dishwasher. Through the ample glass doors in the room that permit you to enjoy the wonderful landscape, you can go into the garden with its pergola covered in grapevines and the garden furniture for eating outside. A staircase takes you to the sleeping area that is composed of a double bedroom, a bedroom with twin beds and the bathroom with washing machine. The floors are in Tuscan terracotta tiles, the ceilings are wooden beamed with wooden joists. From the living room a wooden staircase takes you to a loft where the fifth bed is found.
Peruzzo farm lies in the heart of the ancient PERUZZO ESTATE which extends from the valley amongst vineyards, olive groves, cork-oak woods and Mediterranean bush up to the castles of Montemassi, Roccatederighi and Sassofortino. Situated at 300 metres above sea level, and at about 35 kilometres from the sea, the farm dominates the under-laying valley and spreads over more than 500 hectares of beautiful unspoiled countryside. Peruzzo farm offers a truly relaxing holiday, far from the crowds and the traffic in an atmosphere that only the typical beauty of the Tuscan hills can give. You can choose from a wide range of activities, very suggestive nature paths, to be explored on foot, on horse back or by bike, or you may prefer to relax by the pool or doze in complete peace under the shade of the ancient old trees or under a pergola. Within easy reach you have the sea and many places of artistic importance, the archaeological sites and areas of natural beauty for which Maremma is famous. Part of the ancient estate, surrounded by its own park, is available to guests. Slightly further uphill immerse in woodlands are two smaller farms (Podere Serratina and Podere Belvedere) with recently restored farmhouses. Built of stone, with terracotta floors and wooden beams, at the beginning of the 19th century in the true style of rural Tuscan farm buildings, they are traditionally furnished and decorated maintaining a sense of country life and using family heirlooms to give it that finishing touch. The apartments, which can accommodate between 2 to 8 guests, are independent and well equipped. Each apartment has its own separate entrance and private garden with lush well kept lawns, evergreen shrubs flowering in all seasons and secular trees.
Altre cose da evidenziare
There are also four lakes swimming with fish on the estate and horses, Maremma cows, Amiata donkeys and the various wild animals of the region such as deer, fallow buck, mouflon, roe deer and wild boar can be seen in enclosures. Guests’ horses are welcome. The produce of the farm, extra virgin olive oil-wine-honey etc. can be purchased on site. The mild climate of this region means that even in winter a pleasant holiday can be enjoyed, far from the fog and smog of the city. Peruzzo is the ideal spot where children can become familiar with nature at its finest, and by seeing the various domestic and wild animals in their natural habitat learn to love and respect them.

I studied art history in Florence, where I worked for 15 years in a publishing house.
Now beside the profession in my field I manage the farm that my family owns in Maremma since 1873. I live in Florence and in the farm where my parents reside throughout the year. My sister Elisa with family from Milan move in the summer months.
In Peruzzo also live a couple of caretakers (Robertino and Svetlana), as assistants there are also 3 women (Anna, Angela and Maurizia) while agricultural jobs and garden maintenance is entrusted to 3 workers (Piombone, Luca and Paolo)
