La Fattoria del Collecchio Maremma TuscanyFattoria del Collecchio is situated inside of the nature reserve Parco Naturale della Maremma, a few kilometres from the sea between Talamone and Alberese. At the farm estate there are today three holiday apartments for 4 up to 8 guests available as well as two country villas directly on the sea of the nature reserve.
The roots of the estate are dating back to the 14th century, which is still testified by the antique tower, once an immense farm estate, parceled out in the course of the time. Until a few years ago the farm produced wheat, wine, olive oil, was breeding horses and Maremma cows. Today the farm still produces an excellent extra virgin olive oil as well as seasonal fruits and vegetables. Francesco Vivarelli Colonna, grandfather of the actual owner, between World War I and II has made an important contribution for the drainage of the marshy area.

Fattoria del Collecchio - The ParkThe property comprises inside of the park an agricultural area as well as a wide wooden land that is extending until the crystal clear sea.
A mostly unpaved country road is leading over 8 km from the farm centre to the enchanting beach of Cala di Forno, where the other two houses are immersed in an environmental still untouched context of incredible beauty. During the way you might encounter wild boars, deer, fox, pheasants, view from the uccellina mounts unique panoramic views, notice the antique watch towers here and there, once connected between them, in order to protect the coast from pirate attacks.

On the private road to reach the sea of Cala di Forno inside of the parkThe houses of Cala di Forno are la Dogana, once the customs and the lodgings of the costums, were built during the period of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. During these times it was the first landing stage of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, after the border with the Papal's state.
Thanks to the intervention of the Italian authorities who interdicted the access to the park during the summer months without guide with access only to some areas and the positioning of buoys for yachts to maintain a certain distance from the beach, the houses and the beach of Cala di Forno have obtained a status of uniqueness and exclusiveness. The Nature Park Maremma comprises approximately 5000 of Meditterranean macchia wood, pine woods and coastal line, where it is possible to observe wild animals as well as wild horses and rare birds and naturally a unique flora. Here are animals and nature commanding and here it is still possible to see butteros, the Maremma cowboys.
