We were very happy after our visit to Villa Tatti at the end of August/beginning of September 2013. It was our first holiday with our 3 month old baby and we had a very relaxing time. We took our our own travel bed for the baby however if required one can be rented. The Villa and its grounds are also pram friendly!
The Villa is situated in the middle of beautiful countryside woods with distant views to the sea and the Isola d'elba and of course wonderful blue skies and sunsets. The Villa can be found at the end of a 1km dirt track which is signposted off the main road. The road junction is half way between the villages of Prata and Tatti about 30min by car from Massa Marittima.
The Villa has nine rooms in the main building and 1 suite in an external building at the other end of the swimming pool. Our bed was very comfortable and the room was cleaned very well every day.
We stayed in the main building and opted for the half board option as we spent most days doing day trips to the surrounding area before returning for dip in the pool and an Apero.
The Villa is run by Luisa and she was very helpful and accommodating during our stay not to mention her cooking. Breakfast and dinner are served in the Villa where all guests eat together in a very friendly and homely environment. Every evening we experienced a different Italian culinary delight of home cooking and Luisa made sure we did not go hungry!
The location, the host Luisa and her great cooking make Villa Tatti a perfect place for a relaxing friendly stay in Maremma Region of Tuscany. We shall definitely return!
