Vacation in Tuscany |
The ideal house to rent for extraordinary holidays on the Tuscan Coast. Tucked away in a magical corner of Southern Tuscany, perched on top of a cliff which overlooks the sea, not far from sites of historical interest, and surrounded by the authentic natural wonders of the Maremma Natural Park, stands the Tower, 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.
La Torre was featured in the latest James Bond film entitled, ‘Quantum of Solace’; a sure sign of a classy accommodation!
As you leave the Via Aurelia, on reaching kilometer signpost 157, and continuing on just a few hundred meters through the Mediterranean scrub, you begin to see the Tower, located on private property and closed off by an electronic security gate. Magnificent agave cacti align the path to the front door, creating a romantic and exotic atmosphere.
On entering the front door, to our right we come across a wide open space, 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, also with its own bathroom. At the end of this corridor there is a staircase which leads to the first floor. Here we find an enormous air conditioned living room with fireplace, where one can relish a magnificent 180° panorama. This living-room is furnished with comfortable lounge chairs and couches on one side of the room, while on the other side, there is an antique wooden table which can seat up to 8 people. 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.
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. It is made up of a double bedroom, with small bathroom containing shower facilities, walk in wardrobe and living-room corner. From the second floor, one has access to a small terrace.
The guest house next to the tower has been remodeled to provide a living room and two double bedrooms; each has its own private bathroom (with shower) and air conditioning.
La Torre di Talamonaccio is equipped with satellite television, telephone line and internet. Every window has mosquito nets and every bedroom has ceiling fans. La Torre is surrounded by two terraces, one of which has been transformed into a splendid panoramic lookout, amidst the greenery of the garden. It is the perfect place to sit and enjoy 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. The other is equipped with deckchairs. La Torre also has its own walking trail which leads to the sea and a sunbathing deck.
