A place FULL OF LOVE! Massa Marittima is the perfect base to discover the Tuscan coast and the Maremma area before or after visiting the central part of Tuscany. The house is In a small classic alley with the ground and the houses made of stones in the most authentic part of the town center. This alley is parallel to the main central street of the village with the archeological museum, the historical town hall palace and the Dom (San Cerbone's Cathedral). Here You'll find also a lot of romantic seafood restaurants and Tuscan osteria (one is just in front of the house)! A pharmacy, classic grocery shops, bars and a wonderful winery!

During the night and when you have not to use the car leave it in another Parking area which is bigger and it's just 7 minutes from the apartment, walking through the center of the village which is super safe! :)
THE HOUSE is a design loft completely and recently renovated. In the past it was an ancient joinery of an artisan villager. Part of the house (where actually there is a modern living area) it had been converted from a cave.
The house is on three levels:
- GROUND FLOOR
with the entrance by a double-glasses Windowdoor by a super small "square" at the intersection of two small alleys. The door, that allow you to enter directly in the apartment, it's equipped also with a grating and a big wooden door that I never use as the entire village is so safe!
At the entrance you'll find the KITCHENETTE (with Dishwasher, Moka italian coffee maker, kettle, fridge, freezer, 4 cookers, all the stove you'll need: plates, cups, glasses and so on). A big Table ideal to seat 4 or 6 people! Thanks to the window door the area is very bright and 100% quite. In fact the zone around the house is pedestrian and it's one of the smaller street of the village center.
From the ground floor 4 steps allow you to reach the mid-level of the apartment.
- MID-LEVEL FLOOR
The Living area of the loft with Chromotherapy. Here you'll find a double sofa, a single sofa-bed, a LCD TV and DVD PLAYER. From here an hidden door allow you to reach a short corridor with a washing machine at your disposal. Here another door is the entrance of the Bathroom of the apartment.
The Bathroom is big with a Washbasin, WC, bidet and a big Shower. Here also there is chromotherapy system at your disposal! :) You'll find in the bathroom an hairdryer, also shampoo, hand & body soap.
On the Ground floor and on the mid level the ground is made of gray resin.
- SECOND FLOOR (MEZZANINE)
A cozy Bedroom with comfortable Double Bed (Queen Size), an armchair, a wardrobe, a vertical mirror, a bright grating window. The Ground on this floor is made of Stones (like the staircase from the midlevel floor which is still like in the past, preserving its originality).
Characteristic Tuscan ceilings with exposed beams.
There is also Free Wifi in the Apartment.
I use this apartment only few times when I'm on holidays for relax my soul so I suggest you to do the same on vacation. :) Be inspired by the nature, by your journey, by the silent.
Next to the entrance door of the apartment there is a closet where you'll find all you need to clean the house (Just in case you need, maybe in case of a long stay) and here also a SUN UMBRELLA ideal for the beach that you are allow to take with you whenever you want!! :)
There is no Air Conditioning but I assure you that you will not need A/C.
Thanks to its big walls made of stones and also thanks to its position (half inside of a cave) the air in the apartment is always fresh, also during the warmest summer!
