Casale degli Ulivi is a typical Tuscan farmhouse (a "casale") set in Maremma, one of the most renowned areas in Tuscany for its mild weather, the fair sea, its little hills where the wines "Morellino di Scansano" and many others are produced. The Casale was built with ancient stones, wood and wrought iron, as well as its decorated gate and the wide stony access path, leading to the villa, the swimming pool and the park with the football pitch as well. The park is adorned with olive trees (more than 100!) and typical plants belonging to the Mediterranean scrub. Porticoes with elegant table and chairs surround the whole villa, whose entrances are 2: one on the ground floor, the secondary one on the first floor through steps, leading to the suite on the first floor. The infinity pool is in front of the villa and next to the useful gazebo, while on a lower level (a basement under the swimming pool) is a small storehouse. Just next to one of the sides of the property is an area with barbecue and a stony pizza oven. Inside the park, the property owner lives in a small isolated dependance about 20 m away from the villa, to guarantee a prompt service to guests but at the same time enough privacy. The whole property is surrounded by a high hedge, and the owner's dog (German Shepherd) is kept safe in a separate paddock in the property area, close to the park entrance. Ground floor: it is composed by a hall with a storage closet, and a wider area with a double living room: a large arch made with bricks separates the living room - relax area from the dining room. the first one has 3 comfortable sofas and a armchair surrounding an ancient stony fireplace, a 50'' flat TV, and elegant woody furniture. On one side of the living room is a staircase leading to a loft with another armchair, perfect for listening to music or reading a book... The dining room has a large library and a table for 8-10 people. The kitchen, well equipped, spacious, leads to a storage room with some useful amenities like a vacuum cleaner; the back door leads to an external covered portico with table for 10-12 people and a flat TV (in other words, a small external dining room), just next to the pizza oven and the barbecue: this space is absolutely perfect for lunches or dinners during the summer. Between the dining room and the kitchen is a corridor: there you will find a large bathroom with shower and sauna, a double bedroom with closet and television plus a small single sofa bed room with Tv and small wardrobe. First floor: a stony staircase leads to the first floor, whose rooms are all air conditioned. The master bedroom is really large and has its own loft: the room is composed by a double bed, a wide chest of drawers, flat tv, 2 separated closets, a complete bathroom with hydromassage bathtub and shower. A small staircase leads on a loft, just in front of the double bed, with a chaise longue and a library: of course it can be used as a relax area. Next to the master bedroom is a complete bathroom with hydromassage shower and a bedroom built on two levels: the first one with a single bed, tv and desk, the higher one with a "futon" double bed. The room is particularly suggested for children. A door separates the children room from a studio apartment (which can be accessed from a separated entrance, a staircase on the back side of the villa), composed by a small kitchen with storage room, a complete bathroom with shower and washing machine, a small studio with tv and double sofa bed, a small loft with a double bed. The whole area can host up to 4 people.
