OVERVIEW

Nestled on a Super Tuscan wine estate within the gentle hills of southern Tuscany and and just 20 minutes away from the beach, this villa has been recently refurbished by an interior designer, who received the help of a renowned Italian landscape architect for the garden and pool. It has a sweeping panorama over vineyards, olive groves and the medieval village Capalbio.

The interiors have been elegantly decorated with a mix of styles, accents of color, modern art and oriental furniture.

The living room has a working fireplace and french doors onto one of the terraces. Adjacent is a twin bedroom with its own bathroom. A second en suite twin room is also on the ground floor. The kitchen has a clean feel as well as unique window-doors with custom designed wooden blinds that cast in natural light and open onto the dining terrace and the garden.

The two Master bedrooms are located on the first floor. Each has a deluxe en suite with a tub, shower and double basin. They give way onto a private terrace boasting exceptional views. The last bedroom is found on the lower ground floor. It can be a twin or a double which also has two sofa bed's making it well suited for four children or a couple with small children. This floor also has a TV room and laundry facilities.

There is a nice covered and protected outdoor dining area just overlooking the garden. Next to the pool are two sitting areas, a covered lounge with classy rattan seating and another area for relaxing in the shade. These all have stunning views and on a sunny day you can see the island of Giannutri.

Leaving the villa, a leisurely 15 minute stroll will take you to the charming village of Capalbio where you can have a taste of local life at its cafés, restaurants and shops. A quick drive away, you can reach La Dogana, a beach club on a 20 km-long stretch of sandy beaches. Here you’ll find a good restaurant, water-sport facilities and boat trips to nearby islands of Giglio, Giannutri, Elba or even as far as Corsica.
