OVERVIEW

The villa is nestled within a 55-hectare working wine estate which extends below the enchanting medieval town and castle of Capalbio and just 20 minutes from the beach. With two bedrooms located on the ground floor and flat outdoor living areas, it is also well suited for guests with mobility concerns.

Comprised of a main house and an annex, the villa recently underwent a complete refurbishment. The ceilings feature white washed wooden beams and the walls have been tastefully painted to match the color scheme of each room.

A large entrance hall welcomes you as you enter the villa. Next to this is the vast, bright living room which has plush sofas, a large Moroccan area rug and a working fireplace. It leads into the dining area with a beautiful wooden dining table and another colorful rug, Indian mirrors and a gentle color palette. The huge kitchen, with a grilling wood fire oven and large range, will be perfect for preparing fresh Tuscan meals.

On the first floor are four individually decorated en-suite bedrooms. The Master has a lovely canopy bed, a walk-in dressing room, an en-suite with tub and double basin and a separate sitting area with large sofa which can be used as a bed for a child. It has direct access to the terrace, as does the light green double bedroom, which also has a delightful canopy bed. On this floor are two twins, one in cheerful pinks and another in green tones.

The Annex is accessible via the entrance hall of the main villa. Its foyer has a small lounge area with a striped sofa then two double en-suite rooms, all on the ground floor. One bedroom is decorated in vibrant green and has windows that open onto flat lawn while the second is in light blue and greys and has picturesque views onto the vineyard. For guests traveling with staff, a further en-suite staff bedroom can be made available.

In front of the main villa, and facing the manicured lawns and the vineyard, is a beautiful vine-laden pergola with refined outdoor seating. To the side is a covered dining area with two tables that can be made as one. Next to the salt water pool is another covered pergola with an outdoor shower and sun beds for taking in the serene ambiance.

For tennis players, a private hard tennis court, shared with a nearby family owned property, is available for use and is only a short walk away. Guests can easily take a stroll to Capalbio to peruse the shops and enjoy a meal or drink in a local café. Hopping in your car, you can quickly reach the gorgeous beaches of the Maremma Coast, where you can sunbathe, do watersports, take boat trips and dine at the restaurants we will recommend.

The villa is part of an active wine estate. Behind the villa is the vineyard’s cantina, which guests can arrange to tour and do wine tastings. The vineyard’s office is next to the cantina and, while it has a completely separate entrance and driveway from the villa, guests may notice a staff member coming and going in the morning and evening. The villa remains entirely private and no outside visitors are taken whilst the villa is rented.
