A unique spot

All you see are trees, light and the horizon

Beyond the world, in the heart of Nature

The ecological hamlet of Poggio la Croce seems to come directly from the forest. Less than 10 km from the Tuscan sea, a half-hour drive from Castiglione della Pescaia and Punta Ala, and just over an hour from Siena, you’ll see it appear in the middle of the Bandite di Scarlino nature reserve.

Here, among the red of the arbutus and the blue of the myrtle, the villas slowly rise up. Totally eco-friendly and built only with wood, heated by the sun’s energy and pampered by a large salt-water infinity pool.

The villas

Respectful, elegant, welcoming

Each villa has apartments that can accommodate from 2 to 7 people, and they welcome you with your very own garden or patio. Designed to make you feel at home, featuring fully equipped kitchens, cosy living rooms and large bedrooms.

The pleasure of living in harmony with nature

Every apartment has a private outdoor area, and they all offer the ideal spaces that let you thoroughly enjoy your holiday. As you have an aperitivo and bask in the light of the sunset overlooking the Metalliferous Hills, the view will be so great and the silence so loud that you will forget everything. And when you open the front door, you will feel as though you have always lived here.

Choose the experience that suits you best

At Poggio La Croce you’ll dream as you turn the pages of a book, enjoy the breeze coming in from the sea, close your eyes to listen to the cicadas, or open them wide to count the stars.


To breathe in the greenery, to listen to the silence, to bask in the sunshine

Once you get here, it will only take a few minutes to rediscover a balance with nature that has been completely forgotten, but you’ll quickly learn to recognise it, finding yourself in a familiar place, as warm as the embrace of a distant friend.

Around us, around you

We are in the area of the Metalliferous Hills National Park, a UNESCO Geopark that tells the story of our land’s mining and geological history.
Cities of art and culture, Etruscan sites and medieval villages, spas and the pristine blue sea of Maremma, Siena, Pisa, Montalcino, and Massa Marittima are all just a few kilometres away.

If you are a nature lover, you will have the opportunity to take hikes along the trails in the Bandite di Scarlino Park. And if you prefer a holiday that is all about relaxation and wellness, you can enjoy the crystal blue sea of Cala Violina or the warm thermal waters of Saturnia, Calidario and Petriolo.
