From its fabulous position, Antico Casale di Scansano enjoys spectacular 360°views, from the magnificent hills of Maremma in the east to Mount Amiata in the north and all the way to Punta Ala to the south; it also gives easy access both to the numerous medieval towns and villages in the area, and the coastal Ucellina Natural Park, from Principina a Mare to Talamone.
The hotel is an eco-sustainable restoration of a 19th century Maremma farmhouse which has created accommodation for guests in a former drying house for chestnuts – the delicious fruit of this region – hence the name of the place – Località Castagneta – and of our traditional restaurant, located in a former stable.
Surrounded by the vivid colours of a nature which in many ways is still untamed, alternating with gentle hills of vines and olives, forests of chestnut, pine and larch, meadows filled with flowers or planted with wheat, Antico Casale was built to offer sparkling comfort combined with high-class services.
The town of Scansano and the surrounding area are home to Morellino wine, and wine shops and wineries are always open for tastings of this lively wine with an intense flavour and exquisite bouquet.
We wish you an unforgettable stay packed with history, relaxation, great food and nature!
