Beach:

A fence closes off the entire estate (from the beach). A garden gate gives you access to the endless beach (135 m from the house). The beach is public, as all beaches in Italy, but as the public access is far away, only the occasional bather will wander up to your location.

Privacy and style on the sandy beach

Costa Grande is a unique venue in Italy. In Tuscany you will rarely find a nearly isolated house with direct access to the beach, surrounded by romantic farmland, varied wildlife and mediterranean flora. All of this in the sought-after region of the Maremma on the southern Tuscan coast.

The Costa Grande house has been restored at a top level of style and comfort. A generous living and dining room stretches along the length of the building (14 m), giving onto the terrace and looking out to the sea. On your way down towards the beach you'll find the pool, a converted water basin for cattle and sheep. Since this stretch of land is a conservation area, strict laws regulate any building activity and only the restoration of existing features is allowed.

The house is surrounded by a beautiful mediterranean garden which blends into the surrounding “dunescape,” dotted with the local shrubs such as myrtle and juniper. In early summer you will come upon the very special and highly protected sand lilies which grow here.

There is a shaded lot for car-parking behind the house (a bamboo roof on wooden pillars, 35 steps from the house, makes for private parking of your car in the shade). A fence closes off the entire estate from the beach. You can access this endless stretch of sand via a garden gate. Although all beaches in Italy are public, the public access is far away and thus only the occasional bather will wander up to your location. A beach club with friendly bar and daily papers is 100 meters down the beach and one of Italy's most fashionable beach clubs is 15 km further up the coast.

For friends or family traveling together, there is a smaller two-bedroom house (Costa Piccola / also featured in our portfolio) around 50 meters away which can be rented with this one. The two houses are separated by a densely planted hill which allows sufficient privacy for both houses.

The estate lies roughly half-way between Rome and Grosseto, surrounded by the cultural landmarks of Tarquinia, Tuscania, Orbetello and Viterbo, which all are more or less half an hour‘s drive away. The nearest village, Pescia Romana, is 4 km away. Here you will find all you need, baker and butcher as well as a supermarket and, of course, a bar for your daily cappuccinos and a newsagent who also sells foreign newspapers.

The Maremma is a lesser known and therefore all the more captivating part of Tuscany extending south towards Latium. It is a region which conjures up memories of foregone times, a world of large estates, generations of old families, harvests, summers and the sea.

One is almost tempted to believe that this untamed landscape owes its mystique to the lingering presence of the Etruscans, an ancient civilisation remembered for their peace-loving and hedonistic way of life who lived and farmed here centuries before Christ.

Over the past fifteen years the area has become a favourite spot for a certain Italian intellectual elite seeking the charm of the Tuscan way of life enriched by the joys of an unspoilt seaside.
