The old stone farmhouse takes its name from the immemorial presence of “scópo” plants (erica scoparia, broom heather), characteristic of the Maremma brush. Today, fields planted with grain, sunflowers and grapevines, and an olive grove, where organic agriculture is actively practiced, surround the large garden. After a judicious restoration, which maintained the particular character of Maremman farm buildings, seven apartments were created in the house, furnished with folk-art style furniture and using a prevalence of terra cotta and chestnut wood.
Far from traffic, guests will find a tranquillity that is rare in this day and age, capable of regenerating the spirit and the body. You can choose to swim in the pool, ride a mountain bike or pass the day reading a book in the furnished garden, and in the evening use the barbecue or the wood oven to make a tasty dinner flavoured with local oil and accompanied by local wine, and eat al fresco in the clean country air.
