Maramai, now a charming country house, used to be a small farm with 3 separate buildings. It is named after the Tuscan farmer’s family who lived there until the early ’70s. The ground floor of the main house was used for storage while cattle were tethered in the vaulted room. The family would live on the second floor and the central room with the big chimneypiece used to be the kitchen.

The other tall building – we call it the dépendance – was used for drying tobacco, a major crop in the region (a typical Italian cigar is called “toscano”), and the small elongated building behind, now the pool house, used to be a pigsty.

The house was renovated between 2000 to 2003 and transformed into a comfortable country house with modern facilities that could be lived in all year round. The ground floor is light and spacious with many doors opening onto the garden. A remarkable massive stone table under a pergola of vine is the perfect spot for al fresco dining.

The living room with fireplace on the upper floor used to be the farm’s kitchen. A door leads to the original outdoor stairs which have been kept even though indoor stairs were added. The house was given a special flair by mixing and matching traditional rustic furniture from Brasil, Mexico and India.

The house comfortably sleeps 9 plus a further person on the sofabed in the dépendance. The house can be rented without the dépendance at a reduced rate for a maximum of 7 guests.
