Poolside Tuscan Apartments

Residence Il Ciliegio are poolside apartments located at the doorstep of the medieval village of Roccatederighi, in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma region. Each apartment is furnished in a traditional Tuscan style, with terracotta floors and wooden beamed ceilings. They are equipped with kitchenette, bathroom with shower, bed linen and towels, independent heating, tv and wi-fi.

If you opt for the private accommodation option you will have your own apartment. Guests choosing shared apartments are asked to do so with friends, family or partners to ensure the comfort of all customers. Unfortunately there is no option for single travellers to share at this time.
