Villa Talamone is a totally unique villa, in a magical position overlooking the clear blue sea of the Maremma. Originally an ancient watch tower, the villa has been fully restored and the spectacular panoramas can be enjoyed from its terraces and from the swimming pool below. A walkway leads down to the sea shore and the villas private sun deck.
This wonderful property is in such a romantically beautiful position that a James Bond movie was recently filmed here. The views of the Tuscan coastline are absolutely superb, as is the scenery all around, with the clear blue sea and azure skies contrasting perfectly with lush green countryside, and lovely harbours, and fishing villages dotting the landscape.
A private road leads to the property, once you have recovered from the spectacular views you can enjoy the interior of the villa. On entering on the right hand side there is a little dining room with fireplace, table and chairs from which you access two of the villas lovely bedrooms and two bathrooms (one ensuite). On the left of the entrance corridor there is a fully equipped kitchen and further double bedroom also with ensuite bathroom.
From the corridor steps lead to the first floor of the villa where there is a luminous lounge with gorgeous views and air conditioning. At one end is a sitting area with settees, armchairs, satellite television, Dvd player and fireplace and at the other a dining table and chairs, as well as a little kitchenette. This lovely room opens onto a terrace furnished with table and chairs for dining al fresco and sunloungers, an absolutely spectacular spot for relaxing or dining al fresco whilst enjoying the magnificent sea views stretching as far as to admire the Tuscan islands of Giglio and Montecristo on the horizon.
