Pieve di Caminino is unique demeure within the Tuscan Maremma beacuse of its historical and architectural value, toghether with its exclusive landscape.
The residence is the ideal destination for holidays in a charming farm, for those who love history and nature;it is located in the heart of the Maremma, a romantic and wild untamed land, in a panoramic hilltop setting with the lowest Italian population density. The hospitality takes place in an historic farmhouse; only six romantic independent apartments (plus one double bedroom) that offer an authentic atmosphere to the whole of a private millenary hamlet. We owners personally decided not to install TVs or telephones: our guests prefer to enjoy a glass of good local wine in front of a crackling fireplace, or admire the sunset on the horizon of the centenary olive grove, at the side of the panoramic pool.
Founded on early Christian ruins, the millenary Pieve church is still admirable in its hree nave original structures: nowadays it is a private museum in the center of Caminino hamlet where only the booked guests of the facility are welcome, both at check in and o request during their stay.
Wisely the Ancients founded this hamlet in a unique position, with the horizon on the island of Giglio, a picturesque southern valley, framed by castles (Montemassi, Montepescali, Sticciano) and a forest with a creek lying in the small village. An optimal, strategic but charming location, easily accessible but well insulated. Today, guests of the Pieve di Caminino can live and revive these atmospheres, in original apartments and suites in the old complex, all equipped with a fireplace, panoramic terraces in the green, and furnished with paintings and furniture from the collections of the Marrucchi family who bought the whole village in 1873.
The hall in the ancient Pieve hosts a permanent collection of Locatelli artists, four generations including a court portraitist at the time of Savoy (Romualdo Locatelli), portrayer of Pope John XXIII (Raffaello Locatelli), and the sculptor of the same Pope (Stefano Locatelli).
In this unique space framed by an atmosphere that blends culture with relaxation, concerts and exhibitions are held. And magically, on Christmas night, Pieve returns to its ancient function, hosting a solemn Midnight Mass.
