Villa | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Villa Chris is immersed in the splendid pine forest of Roccamare which is part of a lovely park and private beach area, fenced off to the general public and with a porter at the gate controlling who gains entry. The area is used only by the owners of the villas and their guests.
The villa, with visible stone façade, is surrounded by a lovely garden (one and a half hectares) with a lovely grass garden and very tall pine trees. It is lit at night and is fully fenced off and so is fine if you are bringing your pets with you on holiday. The garden borders the next villas property but it is completely private and secure. Outside you will find a nice loggia with dining table and relaxation area. Part of this area is in shade thanks to the pine trees and is a great place to relax out of the heat of the sun. The area is equipped with a stone barbeque for outdoor lunches. The back of the garden has an ample space for parking and for your children to play safely.
The sea and white sandy beach (one of the best in Tuscany) is just 200 metres away where you will also find a beach hut and private bungalow only available for guests staying at Villa Chris. You will be guaranteed total privacy because access to the beach is limited to just the owners of the villas in that area.

Villa Chris is a delightful recently refurbished seaside property and well furnished. The villa is not particularly luxurious but the villa has been very well looked after by the owners who stay at the villa each year and so you can be sure that the villa is well equipped and well maintained. Villa Chris can sleep up to 12 people in 6 bedrooms : two master bedrooms, 4 double rooms, 6 bathrooms: 2 with bathtub and 4 with a shower.
The villa, located on a gentle slope, is perfectly aligned and is all on one level on the front part of the villa and on two levels to the back of the villa. All of the bedrooms look onto the garden.

Next door you will find the well equipped practical and useful kitchen with a serving hatch onto the living room, 4 ringed hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, 2 fridges and 2 freezers, with dining table and access to the back garden, equipped with another table for outdoor lunches.
On the same floor as the living room there are 2 double bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms and large patio windows which give direct access on the gardens, a twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom and door leading on to the garden. The main entrance to the house opens out on to a corridor which separates all the rooms. At one end there is a beautiful staircase with decorative majolica tiles which leads to the bedrooms.
On the floor below, which is naturally cool, you will find a further double bedroom with en-suite bathroom, another double bedroom and a small bedroom with two beds placed head to head and two bathrooms each with a shower. All of the rooms are well looked after and bright.

The Tuscany region
Tuscany is considered one of the most beautiful regions in Italy with stunning scenery, outstanding food and beautiful cities full of art, history and architecture and for that reason many Tuscan towns have become UNESCO protected sites: the main square in Florence, Siena, the Piazza dei Miracoli at Pisa, San Gimignano, the historical centre of Pienza and also the Val d'Orcia. Tuscany is also considered the birthplace of the Renaissance and is also the birthplace of many famous Italian artists, painters, sculptors, musicians such Dante Alighieri ("the father of the Italian language"), Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Galileo Galilei and Botticelli and that’s to name just a few.
The gently rolling Tuscan hills are lined with cypress trees and bathed in vineyards and olive groves which leave everyone who comes here with very special memories indeed. Tuscany has so many attractions and towns worth visiting that you would need to spend months to really appreciate everything there is to see and do here.
We recommend guests to visit Pisa with its leaning tower, Livorno and the Maremma coast for its spectacular beaches and landscape, Siena with its Piazza del Campo, Volterra and San Gimignano, smaller medieval villages but with lots of character and famous for its original medieval towers, Certaldo, the birthplace of Boccaccio and also Montecatini with its renowned spa offering curative waters and beauty treatments.
As you can see Tuscany has so much to offer no matter what your likes, hobbies and interest. For those who enjoy walking, biking and horse riding the options are endless. Other attractions include skiing at the Abetone ski resort which is just an hour and a half away from Florence, and the widely acclaimed Tyrrhenean beaches (between Viareggio, Pisa, Livorno and Grossetto) just over an hour away.
Last but not least is the Chianti. Nestled between the towns of Siena and Florence the Chianti region has become famous on an international level for its stunning hilly landscape covered in vineyards, cypress trees, hilltop hamlets and winding roads, and breathtaking vistas. A visit to Chianti gives access to an endless source to culture, architecture, scenery and many other attractions. Chianti is also internationally well known for its wine, Il Chianti Classico, olive oil and exceptional cuisine. Visiting the Chianti is a must for anyone coming to Italy! When in the Chianti land stop at Greve in Chianti, buy your local wine and stop off for a pannini at “Da Emilio” – the best sandwich/delicatessen store ever known to exist. When at Panzano in Chianti visit the famous macellaio – butcher “Dario Cecchini”. He also has a restaurant open for lunch and dinner (www.dariocecchini.com). Great steaks, meat anything you want. The meat he uses comes from animals specifically raised for him alone).
Furthermore, just 40 minutes from Florence you will find the Mall shopping outlet http://www.themall.it/en/ - a gallery of the world’s most exclusive designers available at bargain prices offering customers a very unique shopping experience.
Castiglione della Pescaia
The villa is located by the sea along the Maremma coast, in the splendid Roccamare pineforest near to the town of Castiglione della Pescaia (Grosseto). You will also find two tennis clubs nearby as well as an excellent Golf Club at Punta Ala (you need to present a letter asking for permission to become a member first). Florence with it’s international airport is roughly 150 km away to the north, Siena and Chianti around 90 km away to the east and Rome with it’s international airport is roughly 200 km away, to the south. The nearest airport is at Grossetto, 25 km away so a half an hour journey.
