EXCLUSIVE PROPERTIES TO RENT CLOSE TO THE SEA
If your priority is to be close to the sea, we have put together an exciting collection of beach villas located on or near the shore. Whether you want to enjoy early-morning dips in the sea, or long days relaxing with your family on the beach, our exclusive collection will provide all the views and inspiration you need for a wonderful villa holiday.
Staying in a villa near the artistic centres of Florence and Siena as well as being within easy reach of the wild and beautiful coastline of Tuscany is just the answer for a full Tuscan experience.
Monte Argentario, reached by a causeway from the ancient Roman town of Orbetello, is home to the lively Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole which are great places to eat out, admire the glamorous yachts or take a boat trip to the lovely Isola del Giglio. Our villas situated on the hilly landscape which extends inland from the sea offer views to the coast which are truly breathtaking.
Just a short minutes drive from the Porto Ercole town, where lots of artiganal shops and cafes can be found, as well as from the Feniglia beach and the private harbour Cala Galera, from where boats can be rented für excursions to the Giglio and Giannutri islands (ideal for swimming) and to the untouched coast of the Monte Argentario region. In a short minutes drive the popular Monte Argentario Golf club (18 holes) is to be reached as well.
With its huge diversity of landscapes, ranging from the hilly and lush Lunisiana to the classic region of Chianti or the south with vibrant green or deep brown hillocks with sentry like cypresses silhouetted strikingly on the crest against a blue sky, this is Tuscany - a vista that has not changed for centuries. Few landscapes anywhere are more ancient or civilised: in the paintings of the Renaissance, the background of rolling hills, cypresses and vineyards are often more beautiful than the more important religious subject.
To the north, historic Lucca and the nearby golden beaches of Versilia. In the small province of Liguria, the stunning coastline and towns of the Cinque Terre, easily accessed from all of our houses in the area. It is Chianti, however, the area between Florence and Siena with its green hills, undulating rows of vines, olive groves and swathes of pine and ancient oak with mediaeval villages that is perhaps the best known of all Tuscany's varied panoramas, and for many it is here that they can continue their enduring love affair with Italy.
The Tuscan coast, where we have many beautiful villas, washed by the Tyrrhenian sea is only a short drive for a day trip to the sea, offering a complete contrast, and separated by the plains of the Maremma, where the last herds of buffalo still roam. The wild and beautiful coastline of Monte Argentario, reached by a causeway from the ancient Roman town of Orbetello, is the haunt of the Roman ‘beau monde.' Here, the pleasures of eating in the pretty and lively Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole can be combined with admiring the glamorous yachts in their marinas – or taking a boat trip to the lovely Isola del Giglio with its sparkling clear waters.
