Overview


Il Collonzolo is a peaceful medieval farmhouse sitting in an unspoilt valley on the border between the provinces of Siena, Grosseto and Pisa. The thick stone walls and the original layout of the inner rooms give this house an ancient atmosphere and a lovely cool temperature in summer. In winter the large fireplace in the living room creates a cozy nest. The simple and rustic décor and the natural setting of the house take you back to the slow pace of rural life. The house is made up of 3 bedrooms each with its own full bathroom two of which, a fully fitted kitchen and a living room with fireplace are on the ground floor. On the second floor, with its own entrance, sits another bedroom with en-suite bathroom.

The garden develops over different levels and features different eating and relaxing spots under the secular trees, a hammock, garden chairs, a little wooden playground for children and a pool.

The area offers many outdoors activities like mountain biking, trekking, flowers and herbs picking. Il Collonzolo itself has horses. Horse-riding courses can be organized at all levels.

Location & area

Castelnuovo di Val di Cecina is a small village in the Colline Metallifere, sitting on the offshoots of the Maremma overlooking the Tirrenean sea and the Isle of Elba. Its origins date back to the Lombard period (VII c), witnessed by a number of fortresses - still standing in the area - which the Lombards built when opening new roads in search for minerals between Volterra and Massa Marittima. The area around Castelnuovo is rich in archaeological sites of the neolithic, etruscan, barbaric and medieval periods. The land is also marked by stunning millenary parish churches witnessing the rooting and spread of Christianity in the area. The landscape is characterized by gentle hills, about 500-600 metres high, except the Devil's Yard reaching 875 mts. Besided the River Cecina, the region is crossed by the Cornia stream that springs here and by tributaries of the Cecina, the Pavone and the Possera being the most important ones. The woods are thick and the vegetation ranges from the Mediterranean scrub – pine trees, junipers, English oaks, strawberry trees – to the typical Appennine vegetation with turkey oaks, hornbeam, ashes, chestnuts.

The area offers wonderful walks through centenary chestnut groves towards the Appennines, where you can enjoy stunning views of the Cornia Valley, The Tyrrenian sea with the Isle of Elba and on a clear day even Corsica. Other walks take you through the valle del Pavone in deep woods and moving towards Sasso Pisano you can take a fascinating walk along the fumaroles and sulphureous exhalations characterizing the area. The land around Castelnuovo is very rich in thermal baths and springs, making it an ideal destination also in Autumn and winter. Petriolo and Galleraia are but a few. Worth visiting around the area are the villages of Sasso Pisano, Montecastelli Pisano, Radicondoli, S. Galgano a unique Romanesque church not far away. Massa Marittima, Volterra, S. Gimignano, Siena, Florence are all less than an hour's drive away.
