Just returned from a week at La Rocca dei Brigante. We stayed in the wild boar apartment which was upstairs and had a balcony running along the front of the house. We were able to sit and relax on the balcony or by the pool if we wanted to cool off.
The apartment was spotlessly clean and had most things we needed. The only drawback was that the apartment didn't have any comfortable loungers on the balcony, just wooden table and chairs. We were able to get more comfort by the lovely pool on the sunbeds there, though. The bedroom had a ceiling fan for air conditioning but it was good enough and we had very high temperatures reaching 37 degrees.
La Rocca is a working farm with vineyards, olive trees and horses. There was also a very friendly little dog who took us walks! The people running the holiday lets were very friendly and spoke English. They even supplied us with there own grapes and wine. The wine is very good.
The area around the apartment is very peaceful. The beach was a 40 minute drive but the roads are very quiet and it was a nice drive. You would definitely need a car because there are no shops nearby, Manciano was the nearest shop which was about 14km away.
There are not many English people in the area so it's an ideal place to experience true Italian life and get away from it all.
