Personally designed by its architect owner, the villa excels at effortless glamour. From the fluid indoor and outdoor living to the infinity pool, every detail has been carefully considered in order to create the perfect chic country retreat. The villa offers supreme privacy, located on a hill surrounded by olive trees and the vineyards of an interesting wine region.

The interiors are bright, airy and minimalistic. In the entrance there is an office space which opens onto the garden via large sliding doors, a wonderful feature found throughout the house. The vast open living area revolves around the central sitting area and its original modern open fireplace. Behind this is a long light wood table flanked by a long black counter, the divider from the modern kitchen and its stone work spaces.

The villa’s refined Master bedroom has a working fireplace and a custom built beech wood bed structure behind which is a dressing room and a luxurious en-suite with large basin and frosted glass divisions. Both rooms have glass doors that lead outside. There are two other doubles, one with an extra single bed, perfect for a family with a small child. These both have direct access outside via French doors. The last bedroom, a twin, is ideal for teens or grown up children as it is reached via stairs from the laundry room.

Bordered by centuries’ old olive trees, the villa’s exteriors are set within a lovely garden and manicured lawns. Courtesy of large sliding glass doors, the outdoor terrace functions as an extension of the indoor living space. The covered terrace has a sitting area, large dining table and outdoor kitchen. At the front of the villa is a sunny area with sun beds from where you can see the sea.

A path of lavender takes you to the private pool area. The pool has chlorine free water treatment system and wide steps where you can stay cool while basking in the rays. There is a covered pergola for relaxing in the shade and a beautiful outdoor shower made of stone.

If you would like to take a dip in the sea, the gorgeous sandy beaches of the Maremma Coast, one of Tuscany’s hidden gems, are only a leasurly twenty-minute drive away. Quintessential Tuscany of charming medieval villages, authentic trattorias and exceptional wineries are also within a short drive of the villa.
