Unspoiled beaches fringed with dunes are backed by hillsides covered in Mediterranean scrub and olive groves, crested by charming hill-top villages. The reclaimed flatland where cattle used to roam herded by the local cowboys have today largely been given over to well-husbanded vineyards yielding some of the most prestigious vintages in Italy (Sassicaia, Ornellaia). These are the surroundings of Villa Tombolino, an elegant beach house with private access to the beach.

The villa was fully refurbished to a very high decorative standard in 2008 and is a marvel of modern technology with computer controlled air cooling system, heating and lighting and many other conveniences.

The house develops over three floors, each bedroom has its own bathroom. You will love the huge teak-floored terrace with a pine tree growing through it to the rear of the villa, equipped with comfortable chairs, sofas, loungers and an outside dining table.

A lovely pool surrounded by a wooden deck lies in the dunes half way between the villa and the beach, with century old umbrella pines casting their shade.

The beach is reached through a pine grove belonging to the estate. In the dunes behind the beach stands a cabana for pic-nics, with table and sun beds, and a shower. The housekeeper can prepare the pic-nic hampers while the caretaker will carry them to the beach.
