Il Niccioleto was conceived in 19th century and renovated in the 1990s. The concept was to create something magical and authentic in the heart of the Tuscan (Marema) valleys: an immersive experience in a natural agritourism environment.

Il Niccioleto encompasses the philosophy of privacy, natural beauty and integrity.  A task of today, in the awareness that „treasures“ like Il Niccioleto are protected and safeguarded.

What led to the restoration was the desire to resume this place by carrying on its local traditions and surrounding yourself in nature, following ethical principles, such as the use of local workers, catering from the local farmers and respecting the environment, always sustaining eco-sustainable choices.





The estate is dominated by the stone villa of Niccioleto, a house that combines elements from Tuscan traditional design and modern comforts, transforming them to make you feel at home.  The Villa is an example of agricultural house building in the Maremma style specifically from the Manciano area (a city in the province of Grosseto in Tuscany ) dating back the 19th century.

Today Il Niccioleto has been restored. The villa is designed with local traditional architecture in complete harmony with nature. Important and meticulous restoration works have brought the ancient ruin to its splendour, enhancing the authentic materials and architectural style typical of the Tuscan villas of 1900.
