About the villa

Tucked amid trees and flowering shrubs, within fifty private hectares of olives and vines, this unique and modern villa offers absolute tranquillity. Setting high standards and offering the service of an excellent local cook, the split-level Capo d’Uomo comprises three buildings on broad terraces cut into the cliff face; and gazes out, over treetops and the sea, to the island of Giglio, silhouetted on the horizon. The villa’s design creates an arty space, where smart contemporary features sit side-by-side with country elegance. Its social hub, a stone walled hexagon, houses the sitting/dining room and sleek kitchen, each opening on to the main terrace, with a tented gazebo for al fresco dining. Exterior steps lead to five bedrooms on the lower level, all with air conditioning and en suite bath or shower room; while a separate suite is privately positioned, replete with roof rafters and an open fireplace, and with its own furnished terrace facing the sea. With a sizeable pool seeming to spill over the rocks to the sea below, the house is a short drive from a beach club with rock bathing and a restaurant, and 7km from amenities in Porto Santo Stefano.

Please note that this villa is unsuitable for children under 10 years old.

About the area

Tuscany Coast and Surrounds

Average weather

The Maremma is a complete contrast to the classic Tuscan landscapes further north. Gone are the corrugated hills, cypress trees, and vineyards; replaced by fruit orchards and dairy herds—the fertile coastal plains here are Tuscany’s breadbasket. Port-resorts such as Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole are popular weekend bolt-holes for trendy Romans. Inland, where the coastal plains bump into the hills of the Alta Maremma, summer nights on a Tuscany holiday are fresher around hill-towns like Magliano in Toscana and Paganico.
