Hillside villa in Tuscany with summer availability
This is the perfect Italian retreat, with south facing terraces, stunning panoramic views, and lush hillside surroundings. Come and live ‘la dolce vita’ in the heart of Tuscany.
Cancello Rosso is truly the ultimate Tuscan hideaway, whether you’re chilling by the pool in amongst the olive groves, savouring the views over the Maremma plains or getting out and about to explore the culture and heritage of this beautiful region. Located just outside the hillside village of Giuncarico, it’s only half an hour from the coast and 1.5 hours from the airport, but it feels gorgeously private. This is a real ‘escape from it all’ holiday villa.
The surrounding Maremma plains and the Tuscan hills are wonderful for walking and bking, and the coastline, with sandy beaches and clean water, is only half an hour away. There are beaches at Castiglione della Pescaia and Punta Ala. Head to Castiglione della Pescaia for the best passegiata! There are medieval hill villages all around you - Vetulonia, Caldana, Buriano, Gavoranno and Montemassi - all well worth a visit. Mass Marittima is a renaissance treasure with a lovely church below. Some of the best Etruscan remains in Italy can be found at Roselle, which is about 10km away. Siena and Florence are also close enough to make a day trip. This is simply the perfect base for exploring the history, landscape and culinary delights of Tuscany.
The house is laid out over three floors. The ground floor houses a dining room, sitting room and kitchen, all of which open out onto the terrace. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, each with three beds (these share a bath and shower) and downstairs there are two further en-suite bedrooms (each sleeping 2) which lead out to the lower terrace. There is another bedroom on the ground level which is only accessible from outside and therefore a good bolthole for au pairs or teenagers. Outside the ground floor living area there is a beautiful panoramic south-facing terrace with furniture for al fresco dining. There is also a second lower terrace and a gorgeous pool which is open between May and the end of October.
The villa is easy to get to - fly to Pisa airport and hire a car - it's about 1.5 hour drive.
The villa is currently available from mid June to mid July, the last week of August & most of September.
Price: £1950 per week in June & September, £2500 per week in July and August.
