A generous and cheerful house
Cutinolo is an ensemble of two houses bordering a large lawn. Cutinolo Podere sleeps 10 people. The other house, the former stables Cutinolo Forno (also featured in our portfolio), sleeps 6 people. Furthermore there is a dependance which is let to long term tenants. Although not fenced, each accommodation has a separate entrance and outdoor sitting area.
Cutinolo Podere is a generous, colourful and cheerful house. Filled with sunlight, large French windows on the ground floor rooms allow you to move freely between indoors and outside. The front of the house has a spacious pergola with table and chairs. The decoration of the house is the result of a family collaboration in choosing the colours, actually doing the paint-work, designing the kitchen and finding the right furniture at antique shops and markets. The conjointly used swimming pool 7 x 15 metres is equipped with sun beds and deck chairs.
The house is surrounded by vineyards and open landscape. Next to the house a road (cars can be heard from the house) leads from a hamlet in the north (where is located the Castello Maremma / also featured in our portfolio) to Capalbio, a charming Tuscan hilltop village which has become fashionable over the last 10 years.
The sandy beach is at a distance of 14 km. The main hamlet of the estate is 5 km away. This is also the closest shopping area with a small supermarket, a bar, a bank and a post office. The closest village is Albinia at 10 km distance. In the vicinity there is an excellent restaurant. Many more are to be found at not more than a 15 to 20 minute drive.
A lesser known and therefore all the more captivating part of Tuscany, the Maremma extends along the southern Tuscan coast. As it moves away from the sea, the land slowly rises, shaping hills covered in olive groves, fields and woods. Cutinolo belongs to a large private estate which consists mainly of woodland and Mediterranean 'macchia'.
Since several hundred years the estate belongs to the same family. The estate was originally 8000 hectares, reduced to 3000 by state expropriation. Over 95% remains woodland, and of the remaining 150, just 18 hectares of the finest land has been transformed into vineyards by the owner, since 1995. In 1759 the owner brought agriculture to the previously malaria infested swamp that was the Maremma. Today it is the new frontier for Tuscan agriculture. Here the owner continues to forge new ground and is at the forefront of those bringing new wine making techniques to the region.
The Maremma is the last stretch of unspoiled coastline in Italy. The hills of the Monti dell’ Uccellina form the core of the Parco Naturale della Maremma, an incredibly beautiful nature reserve with a breathtaking landscape of cliffs, forested hills, coastal marshes and beaches, a haven for deer, boar, wild horses and the ghostly Maremma cattle. Visit Scansano, Grosseto, Castiglione and the trendy harbor of Puntala. Birdwatchers will not want to miss the lagoons at Argentario, Orbetello, and Burano, stopovers for migrating waterfowl. Think of the Maremma for nature, bird-watching, views, hilltop villages, and wines.

Monte Argentario: Only 20 minutes from the esrtate lies the Monte Argentario, a peninsula connected with the mainland by three dams. The Monte Argentario is known for its fine coastline, rich mediterranean vegetation and the two jet set harbours Porto Ercole and Porto Santo Stefano.
The Tarot-Garden of Niki de Saint-Phalle: On one of the hills not far from the estate the famous french artist hs built her „Jardin des Tarots“, twenty two giant sculptures inspired by the figures of the magic tarot cards. Children love it!
The islands and hiring a boat: In Porto Santo Stefano, 30 minutes drive from the estate, you can hire boat which will take you to te islands of Giglio and Giannutri off the Tuscan coast. Giglio has a charming main village and castle, and many creeks hidden between the cliffs. Giannutri, its bare coastline dominated by the ruins of a Roman villa overlooking the sea, recalls some of the Greek islands, which deep-sea divers can look for sunken Roman galeons on the sea bed.
The hot springs of Saturnia: Tuscany is famous for its hot springs. Saturnia, at only 40 minutes from the estate, is the most spectacular, with hot waterfalls in the middle of nature. In summer one might prefer coming here in the evening or even better, at night.
