No other region showcases the beauty of the Italian countryside quite like Tuscany. It’s a fragrant land of graceful, sloping hills, with vineyards, olive groves and fields of sunflowers, all resting against the glorious blue Mediterranean sky. Surely there’s no better way to experience all this than from an old-fashioned country home, reminiscent of the seventh-century, and set amidst the area’s rural calm.
Dimora Santa Margherita perfectly balances luxurious comfort and style with authentic charm, best shown in the wonderful suites, which each have unique character and boast plenty of space. The hotel’s gorgeous salt-water pool is the perfect place to cool off and gaze across the valley (you’ll swear you’re looking at a postcard), before sneaking off to the living room with a good book. There’s even a lounge bar – ideal for a pre-dinner drink. The hotel can also organize any number of activities, such as golf, horseback riding, cooking classes and wine tours, to make sure you get the most out of your time in Tuscany.
Each of the luxury suites is designed in a unique and distinct style. Suite Serra, measuring in at 450 square feet, offers views of the surrounding hills, and even the Tyrrenian sea in the distance. Inside, the décor incorporates olive green tones with terra-cotta floors, exposed beams and stonework. Suite Ramerino, also 450 square feet, pairs fresh white hues with natural woodwork, and looks out over the olive grove and Maremma Valley. The largest of the suites, Suite Scuderia, also offer Maremma views. With a luxurious 700 square feet, the spacious suite features a freestanding roll-top bath and a multisensory shower.
Breakfast is served daily, and a light lunch is available upon request. There’s also a lounge bar, which is open daily from 8am-10pm.
Dimora Santa Margherita is about a two-hour drive south of Florence, in Italy’s region of Tuscany. With an undulating landscape that’s blanketed in olive groves, vineyards and forests, the area invites you to experience rural Italy at its best. The city of Grosseto, a charming town with a history that stretches back to the High Middle Ages, is just an hour’s drive away and well worth a visit.
How to Get There
Little did we know we would love this isolated Tuscan villa. Elizabet the owner had to retrieve us in town as Expedia had the wrong directions. Peaceful, relaxing offers amazing dinner and unbelievable breakfast. Should have booked a week for relaxation. Will definitely be back!
Very quiet, comfortable place at the end of the world. Amazing owners Elizabetta and William, always helpful and charming. Beautiful views, especially from the swiming pool. Difficult to find the way to get there.
Og slow on the bumby road for 10 minutes and find a Pearl of a small hotel With excellent food and service. We arrived a bit late for lunch, but no problem. They set up a Nice table on out porch and we could choose whatever we wanted from the menù. Very nice pool, and the view - panoramic! Only like 6 suites, and we got offered an Upgrade as Our room suite was given away. However, a bit disappoining as we had booked the blue Family suite especially for the view. We therefore opted for the second best instead of the Upgrade to a nicer suite. We a complemetary wine to make up for it.
Very nice dinner as well, but as it was only the two of us there, it dragged on more than needed. Breakfast also really good, and served private on our terrace We would make sure to come back to this luxury if we can. A true gem of tranquility.
