The Maremma occupies a vast portion of Southern Tuscany. Without fixed boundaries, this region can only he identified by its incomparable scenery, atmosphere, scents, lights, and kmdscapes which are unique and entirely differentpom the "other" Tuscany. The Maremma is at the same time bitter and sweet, a "terra" still to he discovered, where the Etruscans left evidence of their history and culture in many placet. Close to the sea, an top of an imposing hill dominating the gulf of Follonica, nestes the small medieval township of Scarlino, surrounded by a rieb, unspoiled nature and protected by clips which form dreamscape-like creeks and coves.
At the foot of this hill, only 5 km from the Mediterranean sea, the Ranch Hotel welcomes its guests. The beautifully restored typical Tuscan mansion is sitting in a vast green park. Guest rooms each with its own bathroom and apartments are for rent, all with their own independent entrance, terrace, portico, and garden. The guests share the swimming pool and the tennis court. A restaurant caters for vacationers looking for a special Tuscan treat.
