The Maremma Park is in the province of Grosseto, in the town councils of Grosseto, Magliano in Tuscany and Orbetello.
The Maremma Park, with its range of hills descending towards the sea to reach the sandy beaches and cliffs, spreads from the mouth of the Ombrone river till it reaches Talamone, along 25 km of the breathtaking Tuscan coastline surrounded by marshland, pinewood forests, tilled land and pastures. With the scent of aromatic herbs and colorful berries and the cry of its wildlife, the Park greats visitors unveiling both its gentle and primitive nature. A clash of elements which awakens the need to be pampered in a newfound paradise.
A chance to “set the clock hands back”, in tune with the soul.

The Park is open all year round, all week.
