We have just returned from a touring holiday in Tuscany having spent 4 days at The Cuor Di Lupo B & B. We arrived by way of a 3 kilometre country road which we would describe as a dirt track. All ready to say we could not stay as it was too inaccessible to tour from we allowed ourselves to be shown the rooms. They were rustic with all mod cons including sat TV, spotlessly clean with crisp white sheets and fluffy white towels! The pool is free form, moulded into some rocks and again is kept in tip top condition. The views from the pool in all directions are lovely, rolling hills with vines, olive trees and forest. Truly a peaceful spot to relax in completely. The evening meal, cooked by a local lady was excellent and by far the best we had had in Tuscany. We decided to tour no more and to enjoy being marooned at the farmhouse. The owner and his wife , who speak English are congenial hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the meals were all fabulous. If you want somewhere to relax a few days or if you have a 4x4 to navigate in comfort the 'country road' then you could not find better value for money.

Deep in the heart of Maremma lies a 19th century stone farm, restructured according to Tuscany original architecture and materials; here you can spend unforgettable holidays, dipped into the wild nature either sour or sweet, surrounded by smooth hills, always stroked by the sea breeze. Our thoughts go to the sea, while taking a rest by the natural bathing pool made of local rocks and sand, just like a small wild sea inbetween the ancient cork trees and the Mediterranean woodland.The rooms are all different between them, lead back to the ancient rural traditionsMaremma and make us live now lost atmosphere in which we find ourselvesand rhythms of old times, slow and relaxing as those of nature, wherethe only sounds are the languages of animals... or the breeze from the sea...Cuor di lupo, the restaurant: tasting only Maremma's products But the Cuor di lupo Farmholiday is not only farm, in fact we can find a vineyard that produces a wine made from Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo Shirah. Then there are olive trees, which offer a much better and genuine gifts of Tuscany, and ours vegetables are biological.
