"Dolce far niente"means "doing nothing": it is the preferred activity of most our guests; someones, after relaxing by the pool, to the seaside, many choose cultural historic art tours; all enjoy weather and landscape of Maremma.
The holyday house Isola delle Api is in Fercole, close to Petriolo hot thermal springs,half way between Siena and Grosseto, less than 1 km from the main national road .

In every village there is a â€œtrattoriaâ€ (small restaurant) where meals are prepared as if you were at a Tuscan home (cucina casalinga); in the summertime you often dine at a â€œsagraâ€, when each village invites you to dine under the stars, tasting local specialties such as â€œtortelliâ€, mushrooms, snails and plenty of wine as well.

A quiet, traditional house with a garden, a large living room and kitchen at the ground floor and bedrooms on the first floor. A large fireplace at the ground floor heats all the house in winter. Ideal to spend some time with a group of friends in a relaxed surrounding, nearby Petriolo thermal baths.
