The region offers many types of activities of all sorts, all easily reachable by car.

Food & Restaurants

There are many options for good dining in the area. Magliano in Toscana offers a number of good restaurants known for their Cucina di Terra (land produce). Our favorites are Da SandraDa GuidoAurora and La Poventa. Nearby Pereta offers two delicious home run restaurants, Da Maria Moretti and Da Gaetano. Scansano, the home of the prestigious "Morellino di Scansano" has a wonderful enoteca that offers wine-tasting and is open on Sunday.
For seafood or Cucina di Mare, we recommend exploring many of the wonderful restaurants in Orbetello, Talamone, Capalbio, or on the beautiful Argentario peninsula.
Magliano has an excellent butcher, Macelleria Angori.

We highly recommend booking a restaurant early, especially during weekends. During high season, we advise you to book week nights as well.

The vineyards in the region and surrounding the house grow the prize-winning Morellino di Scansano.
