Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
This tower stands sentinel above a sheer drop down to the sea in the nature reserve in the Maremma about 7 km from the village of Talamone and 3 km from Fonteblanda, where you will find all the services you might need. It lies in a very panoramic and tranquil position, overlooking the bay of Talamone and with a view stretching as far as the promontory of Argentario. It has its own path down to the sea with a furnished sunbathing platform, that can be reached via a short flight of steps carved into the rock. At the foot of the tower they have made two terraces; in the first terrace they have placed a 6x4 m swimming-pool, which has a beautiful view, and in the second, surrounded by vegetation, they have created a belvedere for enjoying the view, with sofas and chairs for taking the sun. Torre Etrusca is on two floors: on the top floor you will find the large salon with extensive panoramic windows, and direct access to the terrace that dominates the bay. The furnishings are sober and very refined, in tune with the ancient Spanish structure, built to stem the incursions by the Saracens. It is equipped with all the best creature comforts, such as satellite-TV, stereo with CD player, telephone with internet access. From the villa you can take many interesting trips both into the Maremma with its villages and landscapes that have hardly changed, or to the more famous bathing resorts. Porto Santo Stefano is about 15 km away. We should also mention the excellent Maremman cuisine and its wines that can be enjoyed in the many restaurants in the area.
GROUND FLOOR: going into the entrance hall on the left you come to the kitchen with dishwasher and oven, on our right a small room with a dining corner and fireplace, along with two twin bedrooms with bathroom, one with shower and the other with bath-tub, then at the end of the corridor the third twin bedroom with bathroom with bath-tub and shower.
FIRST FLOOR: from the corridor on the first floor, up some stairs you come to a large salon with air-conditioning and fireplace, and from here you can admire a 180° view with sofas and chairs on one side and on the other a dining area with separate kitchenette. From the salon you access a large terrace, furnished with an outside dining area and relaxation zones, overlooking the sea with a view from the promontory of Argentario as far as Talamone.
RAISED FLOOR: if you go through the small room on the ground floor and go up a brief flight of stairs, you come to the old watch tower, where they have made a double bedroom with fireplace with dressing-room and small bathroom with shower.
All of the rooms have a panoramic view, have mosquito netting at the windows and there are ceiling-fans in the bedrooms on the ground floor. Private path down to the sea.

The Tuscany region
History, culture, natural beauty, crystal waters, dazzling beaches...and food to die for. Italy really does have it all. From Venice's architectural jewels in the north to Puglia's sun soaked olive growths in the south, there's something for everyone in this country of infinite variety.
Whether you choose to spend your time exploring the Adriatic Coast, with its white sands and dramatic promontories, or the gentle rolling hills of Umbria, where almost every view is reminiscent of a Renaissance painting, your time in Italy will be time well spent.
And let's not forget the Italian Lakes, whose serene and ageless splendour has beguiled visitors for centuries. As has the island charm and Sicily and Sardinia, two very different yet equally enchanting holiday destinations. Last, but by no means least, is there any other city on the planet that can match Rome for its combination of ancient history and cosmopolitan style?
Prepare to relax in the most enchanting surrounds you have ever seen...
The Italian countryside is the place to enjoy an authentic experience, to appreciate the real old traditional flavours, or just to watch life go slowly and peacefully by. The Tuscan hills, historical villages, cellars where you can taste some of the regions greatest wines. The world famous towns of Florence and Siena, as well as many other beautiful, well loved Tuscan towns like Pisa, Volterra and Montelpulciano all within a short drive.
The Chianti countryside, where you will find many of Tuscany's most charming locations, such as San Gimignano, has been a popular destination for international travellers for many years and we are delighted to welcome them all to our portfolio.
