The name “Maremma” refers to a historic area which you will not find on the administrative map of Italy. It consists mostly of the Grosetto province lands, and stretches to a neighbor region of Tuscany, Lazio. The area of Maremma is about five thousand square kilometers.

The word ”Maremma” originated from the Italian “marittima”, which means “marine, located on the seashore”.

Sea and water turned out to be both, blessing and damnation for Maremma. Until the XIX century the area was ill-famed as the excessive mildness of the climate made it almost uninhabitable. Malaria ran riot in the marshy region. Melioration, held in the XIX century, changed the situation for the better. The wily disease was conquered. The former bogs turned into spacious fields, which attracted horse-wranglers with their herds. Maremma got a new life at that time.

Not only cattle-breeding, but also traditional Tuscan winemaking is developed in the region today. Wines of Maremma set up new traditions and become more and more popular.

The climate of Maremma, remarkable for its outstanding mildness, has fostered the development of agriculture. Almonds blossom here as early as in February.

Maremma is a nature-oriented region. There is a nature park founded here, so some beaches are open for public only a couple of days a week.

Unique climatic conditions and local landscapes attract tourists from all over the world. Hotels, guest homes, and other types of accommodation are at their service. As Maremma is really one of the best places to get in touch with nature, camping zones and agrotourism centers are especially popular. Besides, agrotourism in Maremma gives you a chance to get acquainted with the traditional lifestyle of the majority of local peasant families.

If you prefer simple and healthy food to restaurant extravagance, the unique part of Tuscany called Maremma is exactly what you need.
