  • A special place, where nature is the mistress and silence, Mystic. The human footprint is slight and harmonica: a House by plastering orange (Red House) is located in the enchanting nature reserve Diaccia Botrona. When we visited the place, the Red House was closed, so we didn't get to visit the Museum. The review is limited to the exterior of the House and the Park, which is wonderful and any opinions not enthusiastic about it, is unfair. Ideal for those who love nature and peace, taking pictures and walking around. Beyond the Red House there is an observation deck equipped with a few chairs and a table: it could be more polished, but I realize that – being "at the mercy" of nature and time and can deteriorate and unmanaged h24 by someone – suffer the effects. Recommend a practical, comfortable shoes and clothing that can withstand water and mud, because there are no trails and, literally, you walk across a boggy/marshy. On a positive note (and an invitation to do the same!): despite what usually happens to the locations "not handled", there were no litter or rubbish and the people we met, like us, observed a dutiful silence so as not to disturb the peace of the place and animals that live there.

  • In the House itself is a museum. During the summer months boat trips are offered from there. If it goes before the House over the bridge and chooses the path under the arches, one can come to a Vogelbeobachtungshaus. Species of herons and flamingos also reside there.

  • Slightly amateurishly put together exhibition contains some curious objects worth seeing and an introductory film. Italian language needed to make the most of it.  more »

  • A wonderful place to rest and enjoy nature.
  • Casa Rossa Ximenes is the old factory of floodgates built by Leonardo Ximenes on the orders of the Medici family, in tentatitvo to restore the marshes of the Maremma. The current Red House is a multimedia Museum and Visitor Center at the service of the magnificent reserve Diaccia Botrona, in which it is located. Inside the Museum you can see exhibits of photography, learning about the flora and fauna of the reserve plastic, an interactive Video that describes the evolution of the territory over the centuries, and some interactive games to recognize animals. A wonderful property that vibrates even history and ingenuity, a treasure that stands isolated at the entrance of the beautiful nature reserve Diaccia Botrona. From the House there are also Red visits to Punt in the nature reserve, great way for visitors to meet the fauna of the reserve. Particularly moonlit night Wherry visits of the full moon, they are extremely impressive. During the summer, the Casa Rossa Ximenes also becomes a stage for music and theatre evening events; the magic of lights and sounds, including the calls of birds, the notes of the instruments, and the flow of water under the historic bridge. A visit not to be missed for all comers in Castiglione della Pescaia, in the province of Grosseto.

  • Picturesquely situated in a marshy landscape with views of Castiglione; almost like in the Carmague.Besonders beautiful in the early morning.

  • Starting point for visiting the nature reserve of the Diaccia Botrona, magical place born by order of Grand Duke Peter Leopold of Lorraine to drain the Swamp of Castiglione. Become a real "machine" for fishing and finally the memory of reclamation of bitter Maremma.
