Hidden within a lush private garden of tall pines, palms and olive trees, elegance and tranquility reign supreme at Fonteblanda. Dating back to the 17th century and recently magnificently restored, the fully-staffed villa is the ideal destination for bringing a large group of family or friends together at the Tuscan seaside.

Decorated in predominantly pale Mediterranean hues, the villa’s interiors have a subtle colonial feel thanks to botanical prints, leafy plants, vintage clocks, rattan furnishings and organic fabrics. These are complemented by historic features such as working stone fireplaces, traditional tiled floors and exposed wooden beams.

There is a large main living room for gathering indoors as well as a separate TV room and a cozy study for curling up with a good book. Three of the suites also have their own private living rooms. Each of the 10 guest rooms is individually decorated, some have four-poster beds, others have claw foot bathtubs in their en suites. These either face the garden or the sea and are accessed via two separate staircases.

Guests can choose to have their meals, prepared by the villa’s chef, in the indoor dining room or the long outdoor dining table found beneath a canopy of trees and overlooking the sea.
There is also a smaller, round table within a flower-laden walled garden, perfect for breakfast or a romantic candlelit dinner.

Savor sweeping views of the bay of Talamone, Talamone Port and the Island of Giglio from the villa’s other lovely outdoor areas which are surrounded by carefully designed gardens. Enjoy a refreshing dip in the long infinity pool or directly in the sea on the villa’s small rocky beach. Afterwards, relax on the sunbeds with umbrellas found next to the pool or in the shady sitting area at the adjacent pool bar. Finish your days with aperitivo at the outdoor living area next to the villa, facing the sunset over the sea. On clear days, the Island of Montecristo and the hills of Corsica can be also seen.

A short drive away are beautiful sandy beaches, picturesque villages and vineyards. In the nearby Port of Talamone you can rent boats to see the coastline from the vantage point of the water. The villa’s manager/concierge (who lives onsite in a separate apartment, as does the chef) is available during the day to assist you with recommendations and arranging activities to ensure you have the perfect stay at Fonteblanda!
