Podere San Michele is in the Caduta district of San Vincenzo in the maremmana countryside.
As part of the Biserno Farm, owned by the Romanof-Gherardesca family until 1956 when they sold off part of the estate, the Podere San Michele became the property of the Socci family and they continued to cultivate the land as it had always been cultivated despite the relatively small yields.

All rooms have been tastefully furnished and provide all possible comfort and facilities: air conditioning, complimentary toiletries, beach towels, an outside area to relax in with tables and chairs, umbrellas and deckchairs.

The Val di Cornia district, thanks to its fertile plains, gentle hills and nearby sea is often called "the Garden of Tuscany".
The Val di Cornia district covers an area that stretches from the Tyrrhenian Sea, to the Gerfalco hills, the town of San Vincenzo and the hills that separate the Livorno and Grosseto plains.
The cultivation of vines in this district began way back in Etruscan times when it is believed that the entire valley was covered in long lines of vines.
In fact, the Etruscan influence in the region is so strong that it is known as the "Costa degli Etruschi" and the same name has been given to the local wine route - "la Strada del Vino" that passes by or close to many Etruscan remains.
San Vincenzo is the perfect place for a holiday, whatever it is that you enjoy! If you are the adventurous type, feed your need for excitement with trips on water scooters, quad bikes, sailing boats, or horse riding. Or, even short acrobatic or sightseeing plane rides.
Those just wanting to relax and chill out there are 4 well-being centers as well as public, or well-equipped private beaches located all along this wonderful stretch of seaside.
