In the heart of Italy’s Maremma region, il Salotto Wines & Resort blends the traditional charms of a Tuscan country-house winery with the contemporary comforts of a well-appointed resort. The translation of ‘Il Salotto’, ‘living room’, inspired an interiors concept created for maximum relaxation and cosiness with a muted, earth-toned palette so views of the vineyards and the sea beyond become the star of the show.
Named after regional grape varietals, the two-bedroom, 70 sqm holiday homes Casa Cabernet, Casa Sangiovese, and Casa Merlot, plus the two-storey, 150 sqm Villa Morellino, feature four-poster beds, kitchens, living rooms, and large terraces looking onto the vineyards. Wide-plank oak floors, timber-beam ceilings, live-edge wood furniture, soft leather seating, and linen draperies create calming retreats connected with the natural surrounds.
Rustic Tuscan style meets refined elegance in the sunny Sala Degustation tasting room where guests savour organic wines carefully aged in the cellar. Forming a cosy haven are a travertine-topped bar, a farm table with olive tree-graining, a stone fireplace flanked by sofas, and two terraces, all oriented to capture the vista at sunset
