Paradise in Maremma, the southern Tuscan coast

Surrounded by trees, the villa Fonte Marina stands in extensive landscaped grounds which blend into the olive groves and fields of the estate. The beach, 3 km from the villa, is made of fine sand with a multitude of colourful seashells.

Villa Fonte Marina has been carefully and lovingly restored. It houses 4 self-contained, terraced apartments which elegantly combine light, taste, ease and clean modern comfort.

The upper floor is taken by the apartments Ginepro und Legio. The living rooms are flooded with light which pours in through the French windows giving onto a balcony on the garden side of the room and the terrace on the other side; the terraces measure 25 m and are equipped with table and chairs.

Hidden from the house by rose and lavender bushes is the 18 x 6 m swimming pool with an adjoining paddling pool. A roof on pillars which used to serve as farm storage has been restored and transformed into an summer living room, an ideal place for lazy summer afternoons in the cool summer breeze.

A country road leads through sweet smelling Mediterranean maquis from the villa to the private gate leading to the beach. Deck chairs and sunbeds are available, as well as a shower and a shady parking space.

Further down the beach you will find two lovely beach clubs – one simple and the other trendy – where you can have coffee, drinks or a light lunch.

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.

Additional amenities: Barbecue grill in the garden, Dog welcome, Each apartment has a mobile fan, Electric filter coffee machine, Electric kettle, Fridge with freezer, Games such as ping pong table, slide and swings for children, Iron and ironing board, Outdoor area for each apartment, Pool child safe and small children pool, Pool: 6 x 18m / shared pool, Private Chef, Safe parking within the estate, Some bycicles for adults and children, Stove with oven, Summer pool house, Window screens in all windows and doors (towards garden/terrace)
