Unique Tower Villa Overlooking the Sea in Southern Tuscany - Torre di Grosseto
As one of those villas you see from afar and gaze at with longing and wishful thinking because one, it's a beautiful stone tower that's unique from all the rest; two, it's wonderfully located close to town; and three, perhaps the best, it offers the most spectacular views of the sea. If this is the type of Tuscany accommodation you're searching for, you'll find this villa just minutes from the town of Fonteblanda is perfect for you and your friends. Plus, this villa features its own path leading 200 meters to the seashore!
Perched a cliff, this historic Spanish tower was built with the idea of protecting its people against the Sacarcen invasions and has since been renovated to become a beautiful villa.
The villa has two terraces offering views of Porto Santo Stefano and the hills of Monte Argentario on one side and the hills of Uccellina Natural Park on the other. The first terrace offers panoramic views, and is surrounded by the greenery of the garden. There is a private swimming pool (open early June until end of September) and deck chairs and a dining area with barbecue, table, and chairs. The second terrace is equipped only with deckchairs. There is also a private walking path from the villa that leads 200 meters to the sea. The property is situated behind an electronic gate and parking is available within the grounds.
