A magnificent eighteenth century residence nestled within the Versilia hills, dominating the Tuscany coast, surrounded by picturesque Italian gardens and centuries-old olive groves.

The restoration, carried out with full respect of the original building materials, has created a stylish holiday retreat, which retains all the charm of the historic residence together with the tranquility and privacy of a private home.

The breathtaking panoramic view of the sea, Versilia plains and Tuscan hills can be appreciated from the house, swimming pool, gardens and covered terrace.

The large living rooms are a triumph of 18th century frescoes with beautiful beamed ceilings, fine period furniture and unique pieces of art.

The eight bedrooms and suites, all overlooking the enchanting landscape, are furnished with authentic antiques and some characterized with clever design touches. The stylish bathrooms are finished with fine Italian marble and hand-painted ceramic tiles. The interiors include sitting rooms, large kitchen, billiards room and private chapel.

At Villa Sant'Andrea your holiday is relaxation, nature, art, culture and sports. In addition to the local medieval town of Pietrasanta, the most important art cities of Tuscany such as Lucca, Pisa, Florence and Siena are easily reachable through landscapes of rare beauty. The marble quarries of Carrara in which Michelangelo carved his masterpiece are a short drive away as are the "Cinque Terre" and the Alpian Alps.

The famous beaches of Versilia with surfing, sailing schools and the golf course at Forte dei Marmi are located just minutes away. Relaxing walks through country paths from the villa leading to ancient villages such as Saint Lucia and Monteggiori or designer shopping in the fashionable centre of Forte dei Marmi are only part of what is available to complete your holiday.

The Tuscany region

Tuscany is well known for its rolling hills, olive groves and vineyards but not as famous for its beaches which are just as interesting and enjoyable. The 30km stretch of sandy beaches from Torre del Lago all the way up the coastline past Forte dei Marmi make up the Versilia area. The seaside resorts along the coast line are full of beach establishments, good restaurants, stylish bars and clubs, fashionable and exclusive shops and many sport activities.

Tuscany holds many of artistic and historical centers such as Florence, Siena, Pisa and Lucca. These medieval and artistic centers are full of masterpieces by many famous Tuscan artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.

Tuscany is the only Italian region which has beach resorts, cultural centers, rolling hills, marble mountains and vast forest plains. The area between Florence and Siena is famous for its Chianti wines and extra Virgin Olive Oil, The marble quarries of Carrara export pure white marble all over the world and hold breathtaking views and natural wildlife protected parks.

The hills of Tuscany are populated by scattered medieval centers all with a story to tell, Pietrasanta is one of these and is also known as little Athens.

The sport activities range from sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, fishing, tennis, horse riding, cycling, mountain biking, paragliding and an 18 hole golf course.

The fashionable resort of Forte dei Marmi with its marble pavements and exclusive restaurants, clubs and boutiques complete the Versilia coastline.


Pietrasanta is a small city in the north of Tuscany with Roman origins and part of a Roman wall still can be seen. It is part of the Versilia area and is located at 3 km from the coast. It holds a historical centre and central square with a Roman/Gothic Cathedral and sits at the foot of the Alpuan Alps, famous for their marble quarries.

The area, like most of Tuscany, has long enjoyed the patronage of artists. Pietrasanta grew to importance during the 15th century, mainly due to its connection with marble. Michelangelo was the first sculptor to recognize the beauty of the local stone.

The town hosts many artist studios that work marble and brass, it also hosts many art galleries and is known as the centre of modern art in Italy. Many artists and sculptors have worked and reside here.

Pietrasanta has many fashionable, excellent restaurants and bars which populate the streets around the central large square. Boutiques, shoes and leather goods stores fill the local streets and make it perfect for shopping. A bohemian town where an “aperitivo” in the bars facing the square offer a delightful, unique atmosphere.

The Marina of Pietrasanta is its seaside resort with golden sands, beach establishments, a pier, shopping centre and vast pine woods is considered one of the most beautiful beach areas in Italy. The liberty style buildings and marble clad squares with sculptures and art works together with tall palm trees and local vegetation give a fairy tale touch to the resort.

The hills surrounding Pietrasanta hold many scattered villages, each with breathtaking views, hidden restaurants and historical gems such as ancient churches and monuments. The Marble quarries of Carrara and the Alpuan Alps with their wildlife parks and retreats add to the fascination of this resort. Pietrasanta offers sports, culture, nature and fun making it perfect for singles, couples and families, young or old.
