The Tomboli estate is the summer residence of a well known Florentine aristocratic family. This marvellous stretch of land which runs along the famous Maremma coastline lies one hour south of Pisa very close to the famous village of Bolgheri which The New York Times ranked 11th out of 44 places to go in 2009.

This is what the New York Times wrote: Four words: George Clooney was here. The Italian coast of Maremma, a raw landscape of pebbled beaches in southern Tuscany, has, for some years, been the summer playground of Italian and English aristocrats. But now the beau monde is all abuzz about Mr. Clooneys visit; he rented the 16th-century Montepergoli villa in the village of Bolgheri. And Bulgari is reportedly looking at the coastline for a resort. A clubby waterfront bar in San Vincenzo, or the two Michelin-star restaurant next door, Gambero Rosso, which the estimable food critic of Le Figaro, Franois Simon, once called his favorite restaurant in the world.

The estate is made up of the main villa offered here and three small houses, with their own private garden Casa Limona, Casa Pineta and Casa Verde.

The villa and the houses have their own access to the beach which is reached by a path leading through e beautiful pineta (umbrella pine-tree wood). Guests are given their private key to the beach.

Unspoilt beaches fringed with dunes are backed by hillsides covered in Mediterranean scrub and olive groves, crested by charming hill-top villages. The reclaimed flatlands 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 Tomboli, 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 conditioning, 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.

The beach is reached through a pine grove belonging to the estate. In the dunes behind the beach stands a cabana for picknicks, with table and sund beds, and a shower. The housekeeper can prepare the picknick hampers while the caretaker will take care of bringing it to the beach.

Standing in an unspoilt tract of typical Tuscan seaside pine forest, this villa is just perfect for a great family holiday.

Activities & Places of Interest

It is here that Bolgheri DOC wines are produced - world-class wines such as Sassicaia, Guado al Tasso and Ornellaia as well as numerous others of the highest quality. This Eldorado of Italian wine as it has been called, is the result of nature s generosity, the climate and the talent of its wine makers. Bolgheri has become one of the most interesting and gifted areas in the whole universe of wine thanks to some illuminated personages, among such as Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, the oenologist Giacomo Tachis and the Marchesi Piero and Lodovico Antinori. The experimental use of international grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and the constant research for innovation and quality has attracted the interest and support of the best world wine critics such as Veronelli, Marvin Shenker and well know national and international wine producers.

Where there is great wine there tends to be great food and the Gambero Rosso, voted the best restaurant in Italy and with 2 Michelin stars, is in one of the seaside resorts along the coast.

Massa Marittima. Here, in one of Etruria s oldest and most prosperous communities, the same minerals that were extracted 2,500 years ago are still being mined. The first miner s code in Europe was drawn up here in 1310. Three years earlier, the graceful Romanesque-Gothic cathedral was completed. Decorated with three orders of arches and slender columns supported by lion-headed capitals, it stands on a steep flight of stairs above the square that contains Massa s medieval buildings, an architectural grouping characteristic of 13th-century Tuscan cities: the travertine Palazzo Pretoria of 1230 with its escutcheons of former mayors, the Palazzo Communale, formed of three crenelated tower-houses and decorated with frescoes, among them a Lorenzetti Madonna.

An excellent Spa - The Tombolo Talasso Resort belonging to the Antinori family - lies in the next village.
