Great place to stay and enjoy the Tuscan countryside. From the windows we had a panoramic view of the Tuscan hills. The cottage itself is very cozy. Everything we might have needed during our stay, unfortunately short, was there. It is not near the sea, but there are so many things to do and places to visit. There are plenty of picturesque villages nearby. Santa Fiora in particular is a very charming medieval village. The locals are very friendly and create a pleasant atmosphere. We bought excellent cheese and olive oil from local producers. Although Saturnia is the closest thermal bath to the cottage we chose to drive approximately one hour to Bagno Vignoni and it was well worth the trip. The main square, a pool with hot springs, is just amazing. Least, but not last, this part of Tuscany is pretty much undiscovered and there are few tourists, except probably in August. I would highly recommend this place for lovers of authentic Italy.
