Signora Margherita and her husband Sergio have fulfilled the "dream of the house in the countryside" many years ago and have restored an old farmhouse in a beautiful panoramic position near the old mountain village of Scarlino.
The extensive property comprises about 20 hectares of land, with olive groves, cork oak forests and the typical Mediterranean "macchia" (mixed forest). Life in the midst of unspoiled nature and the associated effect of recreation for body and soul has awakened in them the desire to let other people participate in the peace and beauty of this place.
It was immediately clear to both of them to decide for the construction of modern energy-saving houses in a country-house style in order to welcome their holidaymakers.
That the negative impacts of nature conservation can only be stopped by a complete rethinking and by a radical change in our consumption behavior, all aspects of environmental friendliness and sustainability have been taken into account right down to the smallest detail during the planning phase.
The building commissioned one of the market-leading companies for ecological constructions. Three different buildings, each with two individually designed residential units, have been created. Each has a private furnished terrace. In the comfortable and tastefully furnished apartments, you can enjoy a pleasant room climate every season, so that the use of heating or cooling system can be kept to a minimum. It was taken with great care, That all materials used including the used wall paints are without pollutants. The hot water supply and the power supply are covered by a solar and photovoltaic installation.
The pool (18 x 5 m) was installed on the slope below the houses, so that you almost feel like flying. It has a water treatment system, which is operated with salt instead of chlorine, which is skin and environmentally friendly. Instead of sun beds, large colored seat cushions invite you to relax. The view stretches over a valley with fields and olive groves and reaches to a wooded hill chain, whose foothills the medieval town of Massa Marittima can be seen.
If you are looking for a place to "decelerate" and want to leave the daily routine for a while, you will find here a small holiday paradise in a family atmosphere, but if you need something different, go to the famous seaside resorts Follonica (16 km) Castiglione della Pescaia (about 28 km) and strolls along the lively promenade in the evening. Golfers can indulge their passion on the two 18-hole courses in Gavvorano (about 12 km) and Punta Ala (about 27 km).
The nearest supermarket is in Bagno di Gavorrano (about 6.5 km), there are also restaurants and pizzerias. The sea to Puntone is about 12 km. To the famous Tuscan cities with its many art treasures you can take day trips: Florence about 150 km, Pisa about 125 km, Siena about 90 km.
Each of the spacious apartments has been furnished with great attention to detail by Signora Margherita and offers comfort and functionality. Due to the slope, the apartments on the first floor also have a ground floor entrance.
Small private garden area, separate entrance - a living room with thermo-fireplace, a kitchen, a small storage room with a washing machine, two double bedrooms, a bathroom with shower WC, large covered veranda with a panoramic view.
Small private garden area, entrance by a covered terrace - a spacious living room with thermo fireplace, an open kitchen, a bathroom with shower/WC, a double room with a separate exit into the garden, a bedroom with 2 single beds and exit to the terrace.

The beautiful, well-kept ambience of the apartments, the wide view of the beautiful landscape and the nice landlords are the right ingredients for a successful holiday / here environmental awareness is a priority / ideal location for MTB sportsmen / beautiful maiolica tiles isome of the bathrooms.
The access road (about 3.7 km) is only well-paved at the beginning. After about 1.5 km it is still tarred, but then becomes narrower and more curvaceous. The last 900 m it becomes a gravel road, which is partly bumpy and can only be traveled slowly.
Liebe Frau Hens und liebe Frau Gramatke, herzlichen Dank für diese Empfehlung: Poggio la Croce ist ja wohl der schönste Platz, den man sich vorstellen kann. Wir sind sehr glücklich, Ihrer Empfehlung gefolgt zu sein. Auch genau das Appartement, das wir haben (sughera di sopra) ist einfach genial. Abgesehen von der Lage und der Aussicht sind die Besitzer unglaublich nett und zuvorkommend und die Ausstattung einfach perfekt. Luigi hat erzählt, um herauszufinden was in den Ferienwohnungen noch fehlen könnte, hätten sie dort quasi einen "Probeurlaub" gemacht. Und genau das merkt man! Kein Haken zu wenig, kein Schnick Schnack zu viel. Alles vorhanden und funktionstüchtig. Wahnsinnig angenehm einfach! Sommerliche Grüße Polly und Peter

Nach langer Suche haben wir uns für die Ferienwohnung Cerro di Sotto in der Anlage Poggio la Croce bei Scarlino für unseren ersten Toscanaurlaub entschieden. Die Wohnung war ein Volltreffer. Wir wurden herzlich von Margaritha in Empfang genommen. Wir erhielten nützliche Tipps für unseren Urlaub und genossen die 10 Tage bei viel Sonnenschein. Kurze Wege zu mehreren Stränden und Sehenswürdigkeiten für Tagesausflüge ließen keine lange Weile aufkommen. Wir können unser Domizil wärmstens weiterempfehlen und kommen selber gerne wieder. Kerstin, Ralf Thore und Rune
