Hotel Il Moro In Piazzetta Scansanomore
Il Moro In Piazzetta is an oasis of peace and calm where you can finally have a restful, relaxing holiday in the heart of Maremma.
The house of stones has a hall, kitchen, bathroom and two double bedrooms. The entrance leads directly into a large room with a fireplace where the walls are adorned with old tools used in farming activities.
The two bedrooms can be rented separately or you can have all the house for you where 6 people can stay. Guests who love to cook or following a particular diet can prepare their own meals using a fully equipped kitchen.
The property is located in the historical center of Montorgiali, a medieval stone village in the Scansano area built around a castle in the XI Century and situated along the Wine and Food Road “Colli di Maremma” (one of the most important in Italy) on the paths that runs through the municipalities where the DOCG Morellino di Scansano was born. The road composes a unique landscape of Maremma where quality oil and wine allow to savour the wine vocation of the area, as the Museum of Vine and Wine in Scansano can fully provide, and enhance healthy and appetizing food products of excellence.
Walking aroud the narrow streets of the village or cycling in the neighborhoods you can admire the Castle of Montorgiali, built on a hill overlooking the village, the Church of St. Biagio, on the left side of the castle, built in medieval times but rebuilt in the Baroque period or you can take on the Montorgiali - Polveraia ring, a 16 km panoramic route turning around the Poggio della Rustica hill and facing towards both Grosseto and the Monte Amiata.
