The estate today a world apart

The spirit of the Serristori estate’s golden years lives on today in the privileges extended to owners of this securely gated enclave’s six Villas, which are approached on a landscaped road lined with majestic, mature pines, a symbol of the Maremma. All around, on an estate that covers 92 acres (37 hectares) of pristine Tuscan coastal territory, are forests and clearings where joyful discoveries await: a woodland children’s play area, the estate’s extensive orto or kitchen garden, tranquil platforms for meditation, yoga or stargazing.

Seasons. In Maremma, each season is fulfilling and gratifying.


Freshly podded peas or luscious tomatoes in your Villa’s kitchen garden might suggest a cooking class, while the buds on the vines you admire from your terrace could prompt you to learn more about Bolgheri’s world-class wines in a tasting session led by an expert sommelier.


It’s a time to enjoy the estate’s private beach or your Villa’s secluded pool, but it’s also sailing season, in a part of the world with an active yachting scene and no end of tempting mooring points, from the hidden coves that dot the shores of Elba to the islands of the Tuscan archipelago.


A visit to an open-air performance of a Puccini opera, the sartorially minded will, of course, want to pay a visit to one of Tuscany’s famous fashion outlet stores or visit the bottega of an artisan shoemaker in a nearby Medieval town. Life here is an endlessly enriching treasure hunt.  The wine and olive oil harvest and the celebrations that go hand in hand are a passage that has travelled through time.


It’s a time of crackling log fires, brisk walks and hunting expeditions, in a territory where la caccia (hunting in all its forms) has a long, aristocratic history. And several of Italy’s historic art and culture draws, from Florence to Pisa, Lucca, and Siena, are within easy reach.

The Kitchen Garden

The estate’s extensive orto or kitchen garden maintains the tradition of zero-kilometer food: fresh tomatoes, zucchini, pumpkins, peppers, onions, lettuce and herbs all curated into a work of art, vibrant with colour and abundant in all seasons.
