““I spent a week in Maremma with family and friends for my birthday! It was a memorable birthday! My daughter and the Landlady organised for me a surprise dinner of Florentine birthday cake (best not to specify how many candles)!
The courtesy and attention to detail are at home at Podere Cirene!
The rooms are spacious and always clean.
The food is excellent and simple.
After a day at the beach, in the heat and confusion, you can relax by the pool in total silence of the Tuscan Maremma!
Next to the farm is a field of sunflowers that I captured with countless photographs!””

““Every time we come we feel at home. For four years, Podere Cirene have been welcoming us with open arms at each visit. The sweetness of the landscapes that surround it, the impeccable services, the spontaneity of gesture that animates it and that fits with the comfort of a home that is not pre-packaged in a hotel reception, Podere Cirene offers quiet, courteous, relaxing rhythms.
The wise and very professional presence of the owner, accompanies with discretion the days at the farm, between sea and nature. The rooms are well appointed and very clean, equipped with every comfort (TV, fridge, hairdryer).
Breakfast is rich and full of variety, served in the living room or out on the garden, next to the beautiful swimming pool, whose lights in the evening lighten the golden sunsets in the Maremma. At the farm you can also dine: simple dishes accompanied by local wines. On some summer evenings dinner are served in the garden by candlelight; the countryside at dusk, the pool well lit, crickets give fresh life to dream a little out of time.
Would strongly recommend a stay in this oasis of peace and accuracy.”

“A 5*Superior Farmhouse!!
It’s a really beautiful structure, characteristic, nestled in a lush garden and vineyard, with a nice sun-kissed pool! Inside always very fresh, ideal for lunch or dinner during the hot times! The typical cuisine is 100% genuine: everything freshly made with their products (vegetable oil …) sublime! The rooms just as beautiful, spotless, simple and with all the amenities! But the thing that makes this place special is the acceptance and availability of the owner … a very kind person and ALWAYS present … the whole team is on the ball! From there it is then easy to reach the seaside, the park of the Maremma, Limestone, etc. Grosseto.”

“We stayed with a couple of friends in this Farmhouse for the Easter weekend. The place is wonderful and attention to every detail.
We tried to find flaws but nothing! Excellent cleanliness, comfortable rooms with small balcony. Breakfast was very good and high quality. The owners courteous and helpful. Unfortunately due to the limited time we had, we were always around to visit the nearby places and therefore we did not partake of their food, but I can guarantee that the smell was delicious. I recommend it to everyone, families or not. I hope to return sooner or later;-)”

“We stayed in October to enjoy the last sunny days. Found it by accident because no one gave us availability for one night only. The facility is clean and well cared for, good food and well cooked. The Landlady is very nice and helpful for any need … even gave us free lunch the next day with a really delicious eggplant parmigiana. The area is beautiful … a place where, again, nature wins.”

“Farmhouse delicious and attention to detail, the location within the park makes it definitely unique. Dream swimming pool, surrounded by fields, excellent cuisine (unforgettable marinated potatoes: P). Overall it was a relaxing vacation! The manager is really nice and helpful. Will definitely be back! :)”

“The Farmhouse is comfortable, the staff discreet and confidential, the owner was very kind and available for all our need. We felt immediately at home. We were able to stay in the pool when we wanted, on the terrace to enjoy the peace and quiet, we were recommended places to visit and where to eat. The room always clean and although ours was a tiny one, it was very pretty. The best time is definitely spring, in August there is too much crowd on the beach (in addition to bees) and it’s all very touristy. Anyway, we had a great time! We ate very well! Great wine! We will absolutely return!”

“I stayed with my partner at the Cirene Farmhouse, unfortunately only three nights!… I was looking for relaxation and I found much more: my five senses dulled by time from the hectic daily routine.
Spending time in this oasis of peace does not really say to make a gift to yourself to 360 degrees. It ‘s like going to visit a friend that you haven’t seen for a long time, to whom you ask “asylum” to get away from everything and everyone. And so the landlady takes care of yourself with kindness and discretion; always attentive to your wants and needs but never intrusive. From breakfast to dinner we were pampered with a kitchen only apparently simple and genuine: the proposed menus are a perfect synthesis of sophisticated culinary culture of the hostess and expertise in the kitchen of the most likeable helper; during the day and then relax is guaranteed, for the lazy ones, the swimming pool surrounded by greenery, or from the many excursions (on foot, by car or by bike), natural and otherwise, that the centrality of the place gives the most curious and active ones. For the rest, all great ….. the staff always helpful and polite, the rooms cozy and always clean; ample parking …. we will come back soon.”

“Wonderful place, silence, peace and quiet, excellent hospitality and treatment of the manager and her staff who made us feel at home. Strategic location, convenient to everything, the park, beaches and cities, especially Grosseto two steps. Farm as a new attentiveness to detail and clean, beautiful pool and surrounded by greenery. Great meals, with full breakfast of excellent homemade cakes. We will definitely come back!!!”

“New structure, excellently well kept at 12km from the sea easily accessible by bike. The farmhouse offers bicycle rental and free wifi. The cosine of Mrs. Silvana was a pleasant surprise: Tuscan but not only, excellent vegetarian dishes on request with Mediterranean touches that differ from the ‘heavy’ Maremma cuisine. High standards of cleanliness. Nice pool. The staff is friendly and discreet.”

“We arrived at a luxurious Tuscan home to be warmly greeted by a wonderful hostess. Our room and en-suite were outstanding with every need met. Breakfast was everything that we could have wished for. We choose to eat in for dinner and were treated to the most gastronomical Italian meal and wine. Silvana provided us with maps, discount vouchers and parking vouchers for the nearby marina. The grounds are beautifully manicured and the pool and outside sitting area a nice retreat for travellers. We were sorry to leave but will return. This location is a great spot to recharge and rest.”

“Perfect! An oasis of peace. We stayed one night at this beautiful farmhouse at 10 km from Grosseto in the countryside, very easy to reach and run by a very kind lady, extremely available and attentive to every customers’ need. The room was large, clean and mostly quiet with a balcony from which we enjoyed a magnificent view. The pool was large and equipped with beds and furnitures for ultimate relaxation. The breakfast was plentiful with cakes, pies and homemade yogurt in addition to homemade ​​bread, jam, nutella, bread, meats, cheeses, fresh fruit and croissants. The dinner complete with everything from appetisers to desserts including wine and water with fresh and wholesome products grown on land adjacent to the farm. Value for money – great. In summary one of the best farmhouses we have ever been and will definitely return!!”

“The overall impression is simply overwhelming. The house is a little off the beaten truck, but with GPS it’s very easy to find. The location is very attractive and quiet in the vineyards. The reception was very friendly, rooms are to be valued higher as *** stars. All decorated with much love, for breakfast freshly baked cakes, everything your heart desires. The lady of the house makes any guests welcome. We’ll be back ….”

“I stayed there with my boyfriend for a weekend of relaxation and beach … The hotel is very pretty, the photos on the internet do not betray the expectations …. Immersed in green and surrounded by beautiful sunflowers, in the morning when you wake up you are already smiling… quiet and cozy place.
The owner is super nice and helpful for every need, ready to fulfil any request to meet customers’ needs … It ‘was like being at home … Even the guy who helps the Silvana in the farm is kind and really good.
Breakfast is very good, all things fresh, quality, homemade … You will not find pre packed croissant, but rather home-made cakes and pies, fruit, cereals, jams, cold meats etc ….
Our room was not very big, but even so it was very nice and clean. There is no air con, but still cool anyway. At night we had no problem sleeping.
The pool outside is not huge, but very pretty and gives you a sense of peace and total relaxation …. From lying around you only see the green of nature.
We made use of the owner’s courtesy bicycles to get around the Maremma Park – really beautiful and characteristic – then got to the beach of Marina di Alberese surrounded by pine forest and the park itself. I really hope we can be back soon … it’s a guarantee!”

“Best place from our Tuscany road trip – this is the real Tuscany. Extremely nice and peaceful villa in the middle of olive trees, vineyards and sunflower fields. Big swimming pool. Nice, romantic and very clean room. Close to the Maremma Park and the beach. The host – Silvana – is a very nice, charming and helpful person really keen to provide you with the best service and wants you to feel like at home. Don’t hesitate to chat with her to get advices, discounts at Maremma, etc. Delicious food, we would not go anywhere else for dinner. Dinner menu was the best we had in Italy – everything fresh and home-made. We will definitely come back.”

“I arrived to this place late in the evening and the owner was kindly expecting me with the dinner ready! It was a great start of my staying after more than 2 hours driving. I loved this place. Traditional Tuscan style, peaceful all day and night, simple but nice decoration details and astonishing views! My bedroom was flawless. The bed very comfy. And regardless the hight temperatures during the day, it remained cool enough for a lovely and pleasant sleep at night… I think that their secret is in keeping it a bit dark until the sunset 😉 There was variety and abundance for breakfast with the authentic Italian capuccinos which I can’t resist (and sometimes I got a second one too much). In few occasions, I had my lunches and dinners there and they were really tasteful and well presented. The pasta and it sauce was delicious! A remarkable detail: high quality and elegant cutlery. Fresh fruits to delight every meal and the ‘Vino della Casa’ (from their own vineyards) was just exquisite! The swimming pool… just as you can see it in the pictures… beautiful! Water very very clean and not too cold. The day I decided to visit the beach, the owner kindly provided me with a code for huge discount in parking and a coupon for discount on snacks at the shop over there. I stayed 4 nightsIt in this place and only have compliments for the Silvana and the staff. Thanks to them and the great job they do I was able to relax and I can say that it was ‘just the place I was looking for’.”

“it was totally great! The house is very quiet just outside the village of Santa Maria di Rispescia (15 min walk). In the village there is actually nothing to do, there is a supermarket and two restaurants with nice food. The beach and park are within 10 minutes drive and are both super! The house is beautifully new (2011 I believe) inside and outside. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean, the bed was fine (a bit hard, as all beds in Tuscany). The hostess was very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was excellent served in the beautiful breakfast room. One of the nicest places we have been in Tuscany!”

“Wonderful for a family holiday. We spent a fantastic week here in August. The room was lovely and spacious with a large balcony – perfect for a family with young kids. The bathroom was beautiful. It made for a perfect base to explore the region on Ms Silvana’s excellent advice – Pitigliano, Le Jardin des Tarots, Capalbio, in addition to the beautiful Maremma beach and Grossetto. We enjoyed the simple, good meals, the ‘Vino della Casa’, and the relaxing environment. We will absolutely be back! Thank you!”

“Sating that this place lets you breath ancient wind without beginning or end, that it takes you back in time and then in to present again with a bit of melancholy, it is no exaggeration. The welcome is as warm as a family one, with the ability to make you actually feel like your at home with the due care and attentions you would expect. I wish all the hotelkeepers were able to treat their guests like they do it here. Thank you and see you soon.”

“Newly built Farmhouse, located in the shallow area of the Maremma near Grosseto town. We were greeted very nicely and warmly, and could leave our bikes in a closed garage. Upon request, we have been prepared a delicious dinner by the owner at a reasonable price and the breakfast buffet was plentiful. We liked the ypical Tuscan décor, the large grass patio and a big swimming pool, which we could not use because of the bad weather unfortunately.”

“The location, proximity to Maremma Grosseto and the Aurelia highway, by way of having peace of mind and convenience of moving, to be noticed complete availability and kindness of Miss Silvana who would always offer great tips to better move nearby. You need to try it!”

“A wonderful B&B, renovated with great care. For those who love a good choice of piece and quiet. Connected with the highway in 5 minutes to reach the sea or the city. Breakfast very good, very kind property.”

“We spent two wonderful days in the green of the Maremma with a splendid welcome. Our room had a view on the swimming pool, a pleasant relaxing feeling, away from smog, with just the birds’ sound, with a lovely and healthy breakfast. A special thank you to the owner and the staff who made us feel at home. Will be back soon.”

“We spent a weekend by silence and quiet: immersed in the piece of the Maremma countryside, we enjoyed two very relaxing days. Dinner was excellent and abundant: simple home cosine exalted by ingredients’ genuineness. The breakfast cakes were very good. Everything is brand new and clean. The Farmhouse is next to ‘da Remo’, the popular restaurant and the beach of the Maremma Park is at few Km away. We very much appreciated the courtesy and the discretion of the management. We hope we can come back soon.”

“This was a fabulous place to stay! We arrived late after trying to cram in Siena and yet our host was very gracious, meeting us at the door and extremely helpful with anything we needed. She has done a marvellous job restoring this farm house and it is immaculate. I only wish we could have stayed longer! The price was very reasonable and the accommodations wonderful. Bedding was the best we had during our trip. Don’t miss this gem. ”

“Very warm welcome, brand new, perfect condition, complete breakfast. Excellent location near Grosseto town to visit the Reserve of the Maremma, beaches, mountains and Pitigliano, Sovana, Saturnia, Scansano …”

“We stayed at the Cirene Farmhouse at the beginning of Oct. We thought we’d stay there as a basis for getting around the Maremma, but we got fascinated from the near sea and from its garden’s quiet and piece. Marina di Alberese is only 10km away, in the heart of the Maremma Park, with limited access: max 140 car spaces. The Farmhouse has just been refurbished, the common space are very beautiful, furnished with taste and in details. the atmosphere is very warm and cosy, and Miss Silvana is very is always ready to satisfy every guest’s need with courtesy. Our room at the ground floor was very cosy, cute and clean, maybe a bit small having left lot of space to the disable services. Breakfast was plentiful and various and cakes were home baked. Considering we had a groupon voucher, we have been treated wonderfully, exactly like the guests who paid full price. Being the facility quite small (10 rooms) and not having booked in advance, we had to wait a little bit
to find a slot at the weekend, but given the warm wether, still summery, we managed to swim in the sea and sunbath like it was full summer. The garden is very much looked after with an English style grass and a beautiful swimming pool.
We recommend the place to couples who prefer quite and charm over messy and confusion environment. We will certainly be back soon.”

“A perfect getaway weekend, immersed in the Maremma Park nature. Relaxing environment, comfortable.. thank you for your kindness and your advices on the riding school, on the Park and for everything! Serena&Lorenzo.”

“We visited it in mid July for two days. We have been pleasantly surprised as we expected an old facility. Instead the Farmhouse is brand new, wonderfully positioned in the Albarese countryside with its own wide park and a new swimming pool. The interiors is looked after and well furnished, our room was right and clean. We ate choosing the courses amongst the suggestions we had from the owner every morning. The owners are not from Tuscany but have demonstrated a high level of refinement that adds value to your stay. We could decide what to do at any time and the owner has been available to help us at any time. We recommend this place to who wants a place with high standard and not ‘falsely characteristic’ like it often happens in many farmhouses that are always the bad copy of what they sow on the web.”
