Seaside

Fattoria di Pietra is located only 20 km far from the wonderful Maremma’s sand beaches. The nearest town (15 km) is Puntone di Scarlino where you can also find a touristic harbor. Northern of the strut is Follonica, seaside resort with private and public beaches close to a beautiful pine forest. Going South from the Puntone there are the beaches of Cala Violina and Cala Martina, with their white sand and crystal clear waters. About thirty kilometers far there are other famous destinations such as Punta Ala, Rocchette, Roccamare and Castiglione.

Lake

About 5 km far from the Farm there’s the Lake dell’Accesa, bathing, ideal for cooling off without going to sea.

Art cities and villages

The nearest artistically interesting town is Massa Marittima, 15 km from the Farm. The city was already inhabited in the Etruscan period, then became a Roman center and was an important bishopric of the ninth century. Because of its rich mines of copper and silver, the town was disputed between Pisa and Siena. It remained under the influence of Siena until 1555, when it passed into the hands of the Signoria in Florence. Massa declined in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries because of malaria and returned to flourish only in the nineteenth century. The historic and artistic center of the city is the square dedicated to Giuseppe Garibaldi: the monuments located in this place own a particular importance, especially because of the inclusion in the bizarre area deliberately irregularly built in the thirteenth century.

Within twenty km are villages that testify the ages from the Etruscans to the present day including Gavorrano, Scarlino, Vetulonia, Montemassi, Roccatederighi, Sassofortino, Roccastrada, Tatti and many others.
