Spectacular 4 bedroom villa overlooking the sea near Grosseto. Originally built to protect the coast against invasions, this villa after undergoing a complete restoration, has become the ideal rental for a unique vacation in Tuscany.
Tucked away in a magical corner of Southern Tuscany, perched on top of a cliff overlooking the sea, a short distance from many sites of historical interest, and surrounded by the authentic natural wonders of the Maremma Natural Park, stands the impressive Villa Talamone, a historic Spanish tower erected to protect against the Saracen invasions. One cannot help but be impressed by the breathtaking views and the natural beauty which can be fully appreciated from every corner of the Tower.
After undergoing complete restoration, the villa has become the ideal rental property for an extraordinary holiday on the Tuscan Coast. You begin to see the villa even before you arrive. It is located on private land closed off by an electronic security gate. Magnificent agave cacti align the path to the front door, creating a romantic and exotic atmosphere.
Villa Talamone is a wonderful 250 square meters villa with 4 bedrooms. On entering the front door, to the right is a dining area with fireplace, and two double bedrooms each with independent bathrooms: one with a bathtub; 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. At the end of the corridor there is a third bedroom with private bath, complete with bathtub and shower.
At the end of this corridor there is a staircase which leads to the first floor. Here we find a large air conditioned living room with fireplace, where one can relish a magnificent 180° panorama. This living-room is furnished with comfortable armchairs and sofas at one end, and an antique wooden dining table which can seat up to 8 people at the other. From this living-room, one has access to a splendid terrace which is divided into two areas: dining on one side and deckchairs for relaxation and sunbathing on the other.
The view from the terrace is spectacular. It captures Porto S. Stefano and the hills of Mount Argentario; Talamone, with its charming walled town; the hills of the Uccellina Natural Park; as well as the islands of Giannutri, Giglio and Montecristo, a famous marine park. This idyllic location also offers its own independent walking trail that leads to the sea and also to the property's private deck, which doubles as a perfect sunbathing spot and private dock.
On returning to the open space on the ground floor, there is a small staircase which leads to the lookout tower. This, too, has been restored, and is divided into two floors. The lower level has a bedroom with fireplace; the upper level has a sitting room, dressing room, small bathroom with shower, and terrace.
Amidst the greenery of the garden, a terrace has been transformed into a splendid panoramic lookout. It is the perfect place to sit and bask in the wonderful sunshine, take a dip in the swimming pool, or to enjoy the company of good friends and a glass of wine around the barbecue after sunset. From the tower a path leads down to the sea and a sunbathing deck.
The villa is air conditioned (in the living-room and 3 bedrooms), equipped with satellite television and Wi-Fi internet. Every window has mosquito screens and 3 bedrooms have ceiling fans.
Villa Talamone was featured in the latest James Bond film entitled, “Quantum of Solace”, a sure sign of a classy accommodation!
