Grosseto is one of Tuscany's hidden gems, the unofficial capital of the stunning Maremma region known for its food, wine and medieval history. Once a fortified village on the road between Pisa and Rome, Grosseto has maintained its medieval charm, sitting in the rolling green valley of the Ombrone river and oozing with history and charm. To stay in one of our Grosseto villas is to unwind, be surrounded by nature and to eat good food and drink even better wine, to discover nature in its wild parks and to live history in its nearby ancient ruins. Grosseto itself lies just 14 km from the azure Tyrrhenian Sea with its beautiful coastline, and the nearby hills hide many world-class wineries. Our villas in Grosseto are near all the main sites of the city like the grand Cathedral of St Lawrence, the Piazza Dante and the Archaeological Museum of Art, but also to attractions like the ancient ruins of Roselle.

Things to do in Grosseto

Beautiful buildings? Check. Scenic setting? Check. Near the coast? Check. Grosseto has all the components that make for a fantastic villa holiday, and the best news is it's still under-the-radar. While the hills and coastline call with their beaches and wineries, make sure to head into Grosseto itself, where you'll find an enchanting green and historical city with many spectacular sites. Don't leave without visiting the Grosseto Cathedral, stopping in the Maremma Museum of Archaeology and Art and relaxing in the Piazza Dante – home of the Palazzo Aldobrandeschi palace. North of the city lies the Archeologica di Roselle, the Etruscan ruins older than Pompeii, while to the east there's the Marina di Grosseto and golden sands of Principina a Mare. Dining in Grosseto is also spectacular, near such incredible wineries and hills filled with local produce, and the best restaurants in town are found in the historic centre. If you're looking for lazy days under the Tuscan sun, only our Grosseto villas with a private pool will do.

Family holidays in Grosseto

Pack up the car and head for the beach, with the coast just a short drive west from our family villas in Grosseto. The coastal hub of the city of the Marina di Grosseto, a buzzing yacht-filled seaside resorts with some great restaurants, shops, bars and a sprawling golden sand beach with umbrellas, sunbeds, lifeguards and great facilities. Nearby there's the beach in Principina a Mare, more rugged and windswept but equally as fantastic for a family day at the beach. Kids and adults alike will love visiting the quirky Caseificio Inno al Sole just outside the city, a buffalo farm and cheese-making farm where kids can meet the buffalos and adults can go to heaven with a selection of cheeses like buffalo mozzarella. Stock up and head back to your Grosseto villa to cook up an Italian feast the whole family will love, or head into town to one of the many family-friendly pizzerias and trattorias.
