The Tuscan Maremma has a lot to offer: beautiful intact landscapes, the most beautiful beaches of the Tyrrhenian Sea as well as a cultural and historical past that goes back to the Etruscans.

Poggio Foco is an organic farm of 400 hectares ideally located high on the Maremma hills, with a wonderful  view that stretches from Monte Amiata to the sea.

Set between the towns of Manciano and Capalbio, Poggio Foco is equally close to the sandy beaches of Ansedonia, and the renowned thermal baths of Saturnia, at which Poggio Foco guests enjoy a special discount. Monte Argentario and Talamone are easily reachable with  40 min. by car, as also the Uccellina  Natural Park, a paradise for nature and trekking lovers.
