Agriturismo San Ottaviano, Monterotondo ♦ Italy
In the middle of rural tuscany situated on top of a small hill, Agriturismo San Ottaviano [ad] comes with the smell of lavender and herbs. About 10 km from the next town, the silence of the estate invites you to relax and enjoy the atmosphere. Embedded in the landscape the pool of the property is one of the highlights of the stylish hotel. At the Agriturismo there are a lot of animal friends like horses, donkeys, dogs and a pig. The rooms are plain, but every one is equipped with a small kitchen and a terrace, so you can chose to enjoy the lovely and authentic regional food served in the restaurant of the estate or to have a light meal with local ham and cheese from the regional markets on your own terrace in the warm sun of tuscany.
There is one more thing to mention. San Ottaviano and their lovely young owners brew their own craft beer. Despite tuscany being a world famous wine region, the brewer knows what he does and creates tasty beer variations. If you ask, the owner proudly presents his brewery and explains the process of making beer in every detail.
Why do we recommend San Ottaviano as an Agriturismo perfect for visiting Saturnia?
The location of the hotel is optimal for making trips to the coast, to Pisa, to the thermal springs of Saturnia or to the medieval town of amazing Tuscany.Besides the perfect location, the surrounding of the Tuscany hills creates a calm and relaxing atmosphere. Walking around the property makes you find new lovely details around every corner. For me personally the huge fig tree and raspberries and blackberries growing everywhere make San Ottaviano even nicer.
