About the villa
A brilliant blend of country house style and charm, Villa Massarosa sits amid broad lawns and natural gardens, just 5km from the vibrant resort of Viareggio and 7km from the beach. Medieval Lucca makes a magical change of scene and tempo, 25km away, and cook service could be added here for truly lazy days. The villa itself encourages a relaxed lifestyle with a large and lovely swimming pool, a poolside gazebo forming an al fresco sitting room, a covered dining terrace with a pair of Balinese-style day beds, and a barbecue and pizza oven for leisurely lunches outdoors. Within the house, a sunny and spacious sitting room has ample sofas and easy chairs, and French windows on to the terrace; the well-equipped kitchen incorporates a convivial dining area, and air conditioning is available in the five bedrooms. The villa is replete with phone, WiFi, iPod dock and satellite TV, and an unusual additional feature occupies the lower ground floor, where a very stylised, rug-strewn room focuses on a Jacuzzi and steam bath.

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.
