The Garden

The guests of Lo Scopetaccio, vacation rental in Tuscany, have exclusive use of its very large garden. The house is surrounded by chestnut trees and a green lawn, which ensure cool shade and a nice breeze even on the hottest days of summer.

The garden is perfect for families with children and pets, to sit outside and enjoy the Tuscan sun, reading, listening to music or even playing in the grass.

The garden is not fenced. It is enclosed by stone walls, typical of the Tuscan landscape, but there are no gates or fences. The area is very safe, though, and the surrounding fields all belong to us.

There are no busy roads or other houses in the immediate proximity of the house, which can be reached from the road leading to Sassofortino via a very short stretch of unpaved road.

The village of Sassofortino is very close by (only 2km, less than a mile and a half), but the cottage area itself is very private and quiet. You will feel as though you are the only visitors in this unspoilt Tuscan countryside, and the only noise you can hear is birds and the wind among the chestnut trees!


The house has a covered porch in front of the main entrance, opening onto the front garden, with chairs and coffee tables.

The garden is for the exclusive use of guests of Lo Scopetaccio. It is illuminated for use at night, and there is plenty of room to park your car.


Our guests are welcome to use our 15m x 5m swimming pool, located just outside the garden and accessible from the garden itself.

Please, note that we use the swimming pool on a regular basis, but our guests are free to use it when we are present as well as when there is nobody else there. The swimming pool at Lo Scopetaccio cannot be used by anybody else but the owners of the house and the guests themselves, so it is not shared with other people.

Our guests can choose to spend some time at the pool with us, but they are also very welcome to use it whenever they want, even when we are not around, so that it becomes their own private swimming pool.

By the swimming pool there is are benches and a table to eat outside.

The countryside surrounding Lo Scopetaccio is ideal for hiking, biking and horseback riding. We will be happy to provide you information about all these activities.
