Loc. Massoni, 58025 Monterotondo Marittimo (Grosseto)
The agriturismo is located amidst 400 hectares of fields and woods that offer a spectacular landscape and numerous paths for sports lovers.
It is just a few minutes from cities of art, beaches and the quaint town of Suvereto.
It offers an on-site artisanal brewery with the possibility for tasting and tours, a restaurant with dishes made from 100% local ingredients, and many farm animals including horses, cows, donkeys, a pig, bees and a dog. It is possibile to take horseback riding lessons or go on a trail ride.
Starting from the agriturismo, there are many mapped and signed trails for hikers, bikers, and horseback riders.
It is the perfect base for your vacation in Tuscany.
The building holds 20 apartments ranging from studio flats for two people up to quadruple flats for a maximum of 6/7 people.
In the upper structure there is the historic farmhouse - San Ottaviano, which houses the restaurant, reception, craft brewery and some apartments.
The other apartments are found in the lower, more quiet section of the farm amidst an active olive grove. All apartments at Podere I Massoni overlook the pool area.
All of the apartments have been renovated, but retain their original structure and charm, and respect the standards of country decor in order to fully enjoy the location.
Each unit has its own entrance and a veranda with table and chairs - great for relaxing in the fresh air or for a candlelit dinner.
The 17m x 8m pools are equipped with lounge chairs and umbrellas, and look out over the valley. Numerous barbecue grills are situated in various locations at the agriturismo.
There is an antique common room (the old oil mill) with arched ceilings where there is a pool table, and around the corner, the TV room.
Receptions, meetings and weddings can be organized in this room.
In our restaurant you can taste the specialties of Tuscan cuisine, made with local and seasonal products, in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Starting in June 2012, Agriturismo San Ottaviano has added the Birrificio de'Neri, where it produces an excellent artisanal craft beer. Guests may particepate in brewery tours and tastings, and of course, we offer all of our brews in our restaurant.
The surrounding countryside offers numerous possibilities for excursions on foot, by bicycle, or on horseback. Maps of the trails are available at the office.
Pets are always welcome.
The small village of Suvereto - the closest town (9 km) - is a wonderful destination for food, culture and events. It still has all the charm of an ancient medieval village.
The closest beaches (about 25 kim) are some of the prettiest in Tuscany: the Golf of Follonica and the Golf of Baratti. Both have received the blue flag; sandy beaches with a view of Elba. The depth of the water near the shore is low enough for children to play and swim, creating a relaxing day at the beach.
Follonica and San Vincenzo are also great for shopping and nightlife.
From the agriturismo you can easily reach Pisa and Siena at about 80 km; Florence about 148 km; the beautiful medeival town of Volterra can be reached in 57 km; Massa Marittima, a known city of historical value is 27 km away.
The close proximity to Piombino ensures quick transport to the island of Elba, which can be reached in an hour by ferry.
The aspect we find particular is the contrast between a tourism made of culture, relax and contact with nature to another made of amusement and feast in experiencing the numerous festivals, fairs and events that characterize the villages of the valley during the whole year: the chestnut fair, the mushrooms fair, the potato and the tortello fairs, the Biennial festival of the wrought iron in Stia, the Giumela in Pratovecchio, only to quote few ones.
There would be still much to say, but we hope you discover it living these places.
Inform the agriturismo of any animals at the time of booking.
Owners will be held responsible for damage to property and persons.

We spent two weeks really relaxing and quiet, surrounded by nature. Francesco and Hilary the owners really made us feel at home, but not only all the staff, especially Sabina. We arrived after a short journey from the main road, and immediately greeted with great professionalism and sympathy, I almost had the feeling of knowing everyone for a long time. We were in the apartments The Masons, which are not part of the main structure, but still reachable in a few steps. Our apartment was comfortable and clean and nothing was missing (maybe I would have put a hammock or deckchair on the veranda). The pool is clean and above all offers a view of the hills of the Maremma. My children have been riding lessons with Hilary who, besides teaching riding techniques, has transmitted a lot of passion in the care of horses. Even the kitchen, pizzas and above all beer are very good. Of course it is not a place to find "movement" but according to my point of view it is the beauty of San Ottaviano. Here the hills, the animals and the nature dictate the times of the days ..... always new and extraordinary (especially with children). Although in the hills you can quickly reach various places (sea, medieval villages and archaeological sites in about 30 minutes by car). I hope to return to San Ottaviano soon.

My wife and I stayed at the agriturismo (our first experience in one of these farmstays) this summer and were pleasantly surprised. The farm sits on a hill overlooking fields and a river - much bigger and spacious than in the photos. The architecture is original, beautiful stone masonry with vines and gardens in the surroundings. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. We had the chance to chat with them and learned all about the history of the estate, their work and what it takes to keep the place running! Francesco gave us a tour and a tasting of his craft brewery, which is located right on the property, and we learned that the barley is grown right on the farm. My wife even tried horseback riding with Hilary and her very sweet horses. She said it was a blast. We ate in the restaurant several times and tried the homemade pizzas on pizza night. Everything was very fresh and locally sourced (they have a huge blackboard telling you where everything is from). You definitely need a car to stay here, but the roads are paved and easy to get around. The closest town is very quaint and has some nice restaurants - ask for recommendations. Overall, we had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend San Ottaviano to anyone who wants a taste of the Tuscan countryside!
