The Best Mix of Nature and History

The picturesque position above Marina Alberese where you'll find 8km of sandy beaches in the Maremma becomes ideal for a holiday vacation of absolute relax. These beaches along this part of the Tuscan coastline are part of the Nature Park where you can also see herds of the Chianina cows and horses that run the land.

Grosseto is close by, and with origins as far back as the 800’s, this is an exciting and active Tuscan city to explore. Spend a day visiting the city, its Medicean Walls and Romanesque cathedral, with its white and black marble facade. Close by is also a fascinating Etruscan archeological park called Roselle where you can walk through a small town, amphitheater and imagine life thousands of years ago.

Being close to the sea doesn’t mean you won’t have a chance to do some wine tasting or visit one of the many famous Tuscan cities. Siena is a wonderful panoramic drive and you can take in the whole city and still be home in time for dinner. If you want to taste a bit of the culture then, the enchanting and historic cities of Montalcino and Buonconvento in the Valdorcia make for a fun day trip.

Meet Barbara, the owner and chef at Agriturismo Melograno

My name is Barbara and I run and manage the Agriturismo where I live with my family since 2001. Before living here my life was completely different, I lived in the city and worked in an office but I have always had a passion for animals and living in contact with nature. One day I decided to make the change and follow my dreams to open an agritourism. And though it has been a tough road to follow, I am very happy to be here with the help of my husband who has always been at my side.

While preparing to open the apartments and B&B rooms, I also worked to become a chef. I now personally take care of the kitchen at the agritourism's restaurant. I love the idea of preparing delicious and exciting meals for my guests, carefully selecting the ingredients from the area and following traditional recipes that distinguish the Maremma region of Tuscany. All the pasta, bread and sweets are made in-house using only flour from Tuscany. On the farm we produce extra virgin olive oil, vegetables, fruits and marmalades.

At the farm, besides welcoming our guests for a pleasant stay, we also raise horses for jumping and Maine Coon cats! :)
