There are three different types of accommodation on Santa Maria. See Fewo-direkt. De-Objekte Nr 29710/-11/-12. All free-standing buildings are surrounded by a well-tended park with tall trees. ‘Etruscan Cottage’ with its old Etruscan store basin has a romantic, secluded position in the 10 hectares of the estate. This massive old Stone cottage has typical rural Cotto floors and ceilings and offers a comfortable living comfort at all times of year. Entering the cottage, firstly you can see the lounge with dining area, kitchen and sofa in front of the fireplace. The bedroom has 3 beds and 1 desk. The 2 big rooms point to the south, as well as the shady terrace with stairs in the front of the house. From here you have a clear view over the forest and the village of Castel Giorgio until the horizon. There is a car port and a firewood box in the house, secured by garden walls. A barbecue has been built near the terrace. SMC, pool, sauna, fitness: The long, narrow pool has a changing room, shower (hot and cold) and a bathroom. It is on the slope under the cypress trees belonging to the main house. It is bordered by a wood-planked patio and deck chairs (see photos). A knobby, old fig tree, with delicious fruits for our guests, offers shade. The Klafs sauna has 3 different sauna settings and can be used free of charge with prior arrangement (warm up time is about 1 hour). The furnishings include 3 different showers, Kneipp basin, deck chairs, gym equipment and weights. (Use of the gym is free, whether you use the sauna or not. ) SMC, Mediterranean, Lago do Bolsena: We visit the Ultima Spaggia, the most southerly or ‘last’ beach of Tuscany, at least once a week in the summer. This well kept beach offers from mid-May till mid-September hire of deckchairs and sun shades, showers, a restaurant with self-service or waiter service (also served to deckchairs), and a supervised, covered car park. It can be reached in 1 hour from Castel Giorgio. Lago di Bolsena (Latium) is only 23 km away, where all water sports are available (13 km across, 150 m deep). Because of the proximity of the sea this lake is little frequented and calm. Empty meadows and olive groves border the lake. Corregone is a speciality, a type of trout that tastes wonderful and is prepared in many local restaurants. It eats the insect larvae from the surface of the water, so that there are hardly any insects. History: The site of the former cloister of Santa Maria della Concezione (SMC) is on a historic peak: to the east it overlooks the Valle di Lapone (in the direction of Orvieto). To the south it abuts the rocky cliff. The Etruscans had settled here, witnessed by the ancient tuff stone grottoes erected to face the sun. In Roman times the old Cassia Trail ran directly through the site. During the Middle Ages a formidable tower had marked this border of the Church State and old church register witness the life of the monastery at the time of the Council of Trent. Since secularisation, it has been used mainly for agricultural purposes. Still in present days, the summer residence of Bracci Testi Secca family is also nearby
