Not far from the wild beach of Alberese and in the heart of the Maremma region of Tuscany, gaze at pine, cypress and olive trees from your beautiful holiday home overlooking its glorious gardens and swimming pool.

Villa Acquacotta is a wonderfully renovated abode which offers charm and serenity in a stunning part of southern Tuscany, set in fifteen hectares of land and only 25km from the coast. In a panoramic position on a hill, with the swimming pool positioned in the wonderful sloping gardens below, the interiors of the villa are both graceful and charming, full of warmth as well as comfort.

Furnished traditionally yet with elegance, the spacious living area features sculptures, books and antique pieces alongside sumptuous sofas and a dining table. Downstairs, a double and two twins are so pretty with canopied beds and en suite shower or bathrooms whilst upstairs, under the wood-beamed eaves, a fourth bedroom has a four-poster double and such romantic views through the little picture-book windows. Extra touches such as mini fridges in the bedrooms, hairdryers and air-conditioning throughout add to the overall relaxing ambience of this gorgeous and much-loved home.

The hospitable owner can arrange a cook to prepare traditional meals from the Maremma region, some of the most delicious Tuscan fare from cured meats and local cheeses to wild boar, chestnuts, saffron, honey and the most amazing extra virgin olive oil. Dine with family or friends al-fresco by the pergola, enjoying views of the surrounding land and countryside beyond.

Spend time by the wild sandy coastline of the Parco Naturale della Maremma, a paradise not only for beach lovers with the renowned Marina di Alberese but also nature enthusiasts who can hike, cycle, horse-ride or even canoe through the extraordinary landscapes of this region.

Further north, Castiglione della Pescaia is a seaside resort full of charm with long beaches backed by pine forests whilst the wetlands of Orbetello, heading south, will delight bird-watchers with over 250 species of migratory and resident birds.

Then there’s little villages to explore, the Morellino vineyards of Scansano to visit and the historic towns of Grosseto and Massa Marittima to admire. Even Siena is just over an hour away – there is so much to discover in this captivating part of southern Tuscany.

In the Maremma region, surrounded by the glorious landscapes of Tuscany yet also just 25km from the sea, Villa Acquacotta enjoys a beautiful position on a little hill overlooking its swimming pool below with cypress, olive and pine trees dotted across its gardens and vast grounds.

The local village is about a 10-minute drive away where you will find a small handful of restaurants as well as shops and a pharmacy. It’s a small yet charming village which is rich in history and features the ruins of an old castle, close to the banks of the Ombrone river.  

The Tuscan town of Grosseto (13km) is a joy to explore with its historic architecture and Etruscan heritage (be sure to visit the impressive Museo Archeologico della Maremma). Admire the beautiful buildings in the old town and soak up the authentic ambience in traditional restaurants serving wonderfully cooked food from the Maremma region, accompanied by wine from the nearby Morellino vineyards.

The Tuscan coast is easily reached with the renowned Marina di Alberese just 25km away, part of the Parco Naturale della Maremma with gorgeous sandy shores backed by incredible nature. This parkland (also called the Uccelina Park) is a paradise for hikers, mountain bikers and horse-riding enthusiasts (or even donkeys) with trails to follow allowing you to discover the outstanding beauty of this region. Watch out for rare bird species and wild animals, hire canoes for guided excursions along the Ombrone or cycle along the path that connects Alberese to the beach.

Further north, Castiglione della Pescaia (32km) is a historic seaside resort and fishing village with stunning beaches backed by pine forests and surrounding landscapes that are also wonderful for bird-watching. In the summer you’ll find beach clubs as well as sailing, boat trips and other watersports such as wind-surfing, kite-surfing and banana boats.  

There’s more canoeing, bird-watching, hiking and horse-riding opportunities in Orbetello (45km), home of incredible wetlands (Oasi WWF Naturale di Orbetello) with over 250 species of migratory and resident birds including the Camargue’s pink flamingos in the winter.  

Other wonderful historic villages dotted across the Maremma region, where you can again experience the culinary traditions of the area, include Magliano, Pereta and Pitigliano whilst wine-lovers should head to Scansano to sample wines in the Morellino vineyards.

Massa Marittima (58km) with its magnificent cathedral is another fine day out or head even further into the heart of southern Tuscany to visit Siena (80km), just over an hour by car.

Region

The picturesque Siena, located in the heart of Tuscany, Italy, is a mesmerising destination that encapsulates the essence of Italian culture, history, and natural beauty. With its rolling hills, charming medieval towns, and renowned art, Siena offers a captivating experience for travellers. One of the region's most famous attractions is the historic city of Siena itself, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The city's unique feature is the Piazza del Campo, a stunning shell-shaped square that hosts the world-famous Palio di Siena, a thrilling horse race held twice a year. The Torre del Mangia, a towering bell tower, offers panoramic views of the city and surrounding countryside, allowing visitors to fully appreciate Siena's historic and architectural splendour.

Tuscany 

With its rolling fields, historical heritage and a cuisine that’s a delight for all the senses, it’s no wonder Tuscany is one of the most popular regions in Italy for holidaymakers. Yet even with its popularity, you can still kick back in one of our luxury villas in Tuscany and feel peace, tranquillity and the joy of seclusion. 

This is one destination that really does have a little bit of everything for everyone, whether you’re travelling with family, friends or are just looking for a romantic getaway with that special someone.

One of the great draws of this area is that many of the beaches of the Tuscan coastline are easily reached within around half an hour.

Marina di Alberese is one of this area’s most famous beaches, backed by the extraordinary Parco Naturale della Maremma (also known as Uccellina Park) and its incredible nature. There are cycling paths, hiking trails, mountain biking opportunities as well as horse-riding and canoeing.

The seaside resort and fishing village of Castiglione della Pescaia is also much-loved with its long beach backed by pine forests. Here you will find summer beach clubs, bike hire, boat excursions and watersports. Nature lovers should also head to the stunning wetlands at Orbetello, a paradise for bird-watchers especially.

Closer to home, keen historians who take an interest in the Etruscan heritage of this region should visit the Museo Archeologico della Maremma in the lovely and authentic town of Grosseto, just 13km away.
