Luxury holiday villa in Tuscany, Italy near Talamone, Grosseto. This holiday villa in Tuscany is tucked away in a magical corner of Southern Tuscany, perched up on top of a cliff which overlooks the sea, not too far from places which are interesting historically speaking, and amongst the authentic natural wonders of the Maremma Natural Park, stands the Villa Rocca, historic spanish tower erected to protect against the saracen invasions, which has recently undergone restoration and is now the ideal villa to rent for one's extraordinary holidays. As you leave the Via Aurelia, on reaching the kilometre signpost 157, and continuing on just a few hundred metres through the Mediterranean scrub, you begin to see the Tower, which is set on private land, closed with an electronic security gate. andnbspOne cannot be but thoroughly impressed by the wonderful view and the natural beauties which appear before one's eyes and which can be fully appreciated from every corner of the Tower. andnbspA small boulevard of magnificent agave cacti lead to the front door, creating a romantic and exotic atmosphere. Entering through the front door, on your right we come across a wide open space, which is a dining area with fireplace, and two double bedrooms each with independent bathrooms one with bathtub facilities and the other with a shower. Continuing on, along the entrance corridor and to the left of the dining room, we find a fully equipped modern kitchen, and at the end of the corridor there is a third bedroom. This bedroom also has its own independent bathroom, with shower and bathtub. At the end of this corridor there is a staircase which leads to the first floor. Here we find an enormous living-room, equipped with airconditioning and fireplace, and from which one is free to admire a fabulous view at 180??. This living-room is furnished with comfortable lounge chairs and couches, on one side of the room and, on the other there is a rectangular antique wooden table which can easily accommodate up to 8 people. andnbspFrom this living-room, one has access to a splendid terrace which is divided into two areas: andnbspdining on one side and relaxation on the other, where we also find deckchairs suitable for sunbathing. The view from the terrace is breathtaking: it captures Porto S. Stefano and the hills of Mount Argentario on one side, and Talamone, with its charming walled town, and the hills of the Uccellina Natural Park on the other. One can also admire a spectacular view of the islands of Giannutri, Giglio and Montecristo, this last island being a very famous marine park. On returning to the open space on the ground floor there is a small staircase which leads to the lookout tower. This has also been restored and is divided into two floors. andnbspIt is made up of a double bedroom, with small bathroom containing shower facilities, walk in wardrobe and living-room corner. andnbspFrom the second floor, one has access to a small terrace. Villa Rocca is equipped with satellite television, direct telephone and internet. Every window has mosquito nets, and every bedroom has celing fans. The Tower has a lovely terrace which has been transformed into a splendid panoramic lookout. It is the perfect place to sit and enjoy the wonderful sunshine, to enjoy the company of good friends and a glass of wine around the barbecue. andnbspThe Tower also has its own independent walking trail which leads directly to the sea, and its own private sunbathing deck.andnbsp
