    Overview

    Paradise in Maremma, the southern Tuscan coast

    Surrounded by trees, the villa Fonte Marina stands in extensive landscaped grounds which blend into the olive groves and fields of the estate. The beach, 3 km from the villa, is made of fine sand with a multitude of colourful seashells. 

    Villa Fonte Marina has been carefully and lovingly restored. It houses 4 self-contained, terraced apartments which elegantly combine light, taste, ease and clean modern comfort. 

    The upper floor is taken by the apartments Ginepro und Legio. The living rooms are flooded with light which pours in through the French windows giving onto a balcony on the garden side of the room and the terrace on the other side; the terraces measure 25 m and are equipped with table and chairs. 

    Hidden from the house by rose and lavender bushes is the 18 x 6 m swimming pool with an adjoining paddling pool. A roof on pillars which used to serve as farm storage has been restored and transformed into an summer living room, an ideal place for lazy summer afternoons in the cool summer breeze.

    A country road leads through sweet smelling Mediterranean maquis from the villa to the private gate leading to the beach. Deck chairs and sunbeds are available, as well as a shower and a shady parking space.

    Further down the beach you will find two lovely beach clubs – one simple and the other trendy – where you can have coffee, drinks or a light lunch.

     

    The estate lies roughly half-way between Rome and Grosseto, surrounded by the cultural landmarks of Tarquinia, Tuscania, Orbetello and Viterbo, which all are more or less half an hour‘s drive away. The nearest village, Pescia Romana, is 4 km away. Here you will find all you need, baker and butcher as well as a supermarket and, of course, a bar for your daily cappuccinos and a newsagent who also sells foreign newspapers.

    The Maremma is a lesser known and therefore all the more captivating part of Tuscany extending south towards Latium. It is a region which conjures up memories of foregone times, a world of large estates, generations of old families, harvests, summers and the sea.

    One is almost tempted to believe that this untamed landscape owes its mystique to the lingering presence of the Etruscans, an ancient civilisation remembered for their peace-loving and hedonistic way of life who lived and farmed here centuries before Christ.

    Over the past fifteen years the area has become a favourite spot for a certain Italian intellectual elite seeking the charm of the Tuscan way of life enriched by the joys of an unspoilt seaside.

    Our Guests Reviews

    Liebe Frau Röhrig,
    wir hatten so einen schönen Urlaub in Fonte Marina. Unsere Wohnung (Mirto) war noch schöner, als auf den Fotos abgebildet. Wir wurden sehr freundlich vom Gutsherren empfangen und auch seine Sekretärin Emmanuela, die wir im Laufe des Aufenthalts kennenlernten war überaus freundlich. Das ganze Anwesen, samt Pool war unglaublich gepflegt, wir hatten nette Nachbarn... es war alles perfekt und wir haben uns schon am ersten Abend zuhause gefühlt! 
    Es grüßt Sie ganz herzlich 
    K. Roblick & Familie, September 2019

    Liebe Frau Roehrig!
    Es gefällt uns so gut, wir können uns nicht von der Toskana trennen...
    Darum die Frage - haben sie nachste Woche also ab diesem Samstag noch ein ähnliches Quartier für uns, bevorzugt Nähe Rom oder Florenz weil wir den Flughafen benötigen.
    R. Riener Schwaighofer, Juli 2016

    Liebe Frau Röhrig,
    da es uns sehr gut im Urlaub gefallen hat, hätte ich auch sehr gerne eine Bewertung abgegeben, befürchte aber, dass es nicht geklappt hat. Nachdem ich auf Tripadvisor alles ausgefüllt hatte, hätte ich mich auch da wieder als Mitgleid registrieren lassen müssen, was ich nicht wollte. 
    lG,

    Activities

    The beach: From a holidayer‘s point of view the private beach of the estate is a real asset, only four kilometers from the house. A back road leads to a private gate to which the guests are given a key. The beach is of fine sand with a multitude of coloured shells. Behind the beach, the dunes are covered with a labyrinth of wild aromatic bushes such as myrtle and cistus-roses which blossom at different times of the year. Two cafés down the beach have coffé, ice-cream and also serves light meals.

    Lake Burano: The estate borders on the Lake Burano, a lagoon run by the WWF. The bird-watching here is excellent, above all in spring and autumn.

    The WWF Maremma National Park: The Parco dell’Uccellina, officially the Parco Nazionale Maremmano, is a rewarding place for nature lovers. Marked footpaths will lead you through incredibly beautiful pine woods to hidden creeks, past romantic ruins of fortified watch towers to the abbey of San Rabano, built by monks who arrived from Rhodes in the X century.

    Vulci is another natural park of the WWF. The castle called “Castello dell’Abbadia”  has become the National Archeological Museum  of Vulci with a beautiful collection of ceramics, sculptures and bronzes. We recommend a walk over the Roman bridge of l’Abbadia. From here, on foot or by car, you may reach the remains of the Etruscan and Roman town of Vulci called “La Civita”. The area has become an archeological park and offers a choice of many walks.

    The Etruscans: A trip through what was known as Etruria is one of the most interesting archaeological excursions in Italy. Tarquinia and Tuscania, only 25 kms away from the estate, boast worldwide famous archeological excavations which should not be missed.

    Tarquinia is world famous for its Etruscan tombs and frescoes. The necropolis of Tarquinia is on the outskirts of town and easy to find. In town the beautiful  15th century Palazzo Vitelleschi is now the Archeological Museum.

    Tuscania: Dating back to the Etruscan period, it became an important fortification in the middle-ages. The two romanic churches of Santa Maria Maggiore are remarkable. A walk through the center of the town is rewarding.

    Monte Argentario: Only half an hour from the estate 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. For lovers of adventure at Monte Argentario, where renting a boat, you may experience one of the most charming seas in Italy. Recently a kite surfing school has opened on the beach.

    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!

    Villa Lante, Bagnaia-Viterbo: one of Italy’s most stunning Renaissance gardens. At 80 kms, just over an hours drive. Can be combined with a visit too.

    Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola, one of Italy’s most stunning Renaissance buildings. The Scala Regia is an elaborate stone spiral staircase that let Cardinal Alessandro Farnese  (later Pope Paul III) reach the bedrooms on horseback.  The Palazzo contains masterpieces by some of the most important painters and architects of the period.

    Sovana, Sorano and Pitigliano are three towns at 1 h drive. Sovana boasts a magnificent Etruscan necropolis and 2 remarkable Romanic churches. Pitigliano is a medieval town high up on a crest, with a Jewish community dating back to the 16th c. It is also known for the white wine Bianco di Pitigliano. The Medieval town of Sorano spreads at the foot of the 14th century Orsini Castle.

    Sports: Main feature of the Maremma is… the thermal wind, from April to September the wind blows 4 to 5 days a week with an intensity ranging from 12 to 25 knots. The beaches of Castiglione, Talamone and Capalbio provide suitable spots for any kind of wind condition, where you can practice freestyle, waveriding and long downwind. The tennis club in Pescia Romana, the village, has several courts which can be booked by the hour. There are two golf courses in the region. The Golf Club Maremmello, 20 min away, has 9 holes, Par 70. The famous Punta Ala Club is 1 hour by car, it has 18 holes, Par 72.

    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.
