Amandula, from the ancient local jargon “màndula”, that is almond: the precious fundamental fruit in the ancient peasant diet whose tree dominated this area. It is the name of this villa built in 2019 with contemporary criteria of zero impact, enhancement of local materials and workers: handmade terracotta, chestnut beams, oak parquet; modern, linear, total white spaces. The light penetrates through the windows deliberately oversized to ensure that everything is animated and pervaded by natural light that becomes a piece of furniture. Amandula is perched on a hill 350 meters above sea level, overlooking a splendid rural landscape, dotted with expanses of olive trees, vines and thick woods bordered on the horizon by the lace of Monte Amiata, an ancient extinct volcano that stands out over the valleys between the provinces of Grosseto and Siena. It is located in a formidable territory where the slopes of the mountain meet and merge with the wild Maremma, which on one side slopes down towards the Tuscan coast and on the other overlaps with the undulating lands of the Val d'Orcia. The villa, thanks to its private position, within a farm where extra virgin olive oil is produced, is well suited to welcome those who want to get lost in a natural and relaxing dimension, where tranquility and large green spaces are protagonists. Moving easily from the property you can reach many destinations of interest that characterize the immediate surroundings, ranging from delightful medieval villages such as Abbadia San Salvatore, Arcidosso, Santa Fiora, Montalcino,
