Podere Santa Pia is a beautiful stone farmhouse only 2 km away from Castiglioncello Bandini. The main house is spacious, comfortable and well furnished and offers its guests a breathtaking view over the Maremma hills. Podere Santa Pia is surrounded by a backdrop of hills and macchia mediterranea: wild, untamed and completely natural vegetation, wonderful for walking and exploring.
