History & Geography
The almost 165 hectares of Fattoria La Maliosa are located in the hills of the Maremma Grossetana, a part of Tuscany that shares its borders with Lazio and overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea. It’s located between the Fiora and Albegna Rivers in an area historically inhabited by the Etruscans. Geologically, there are important differences in the farm’s land formation age, ranging from 10 million to 10,000 years ago. This can be seen in its present stratigraphic structures, sedimentation and mineralogical and chemical concentrations. Its proximity to the coast creates a mild Mediterranean climate, which is unlike the more continental climate of other Tuscan hilly areas. There is an endless list of towns to visit like Manciano, Montemerano, Pitigliano, Saturnia, with its famous thermal springs and their warm and curative waters. Sovana, with its Etruscan tombs, and Sorano. Close by, are numerous protected reserves like the Parco Naturale della Maremma and WWF Oases.
