Ancient historic tower just a few kilometres from the shore in Orbetello (Grosseto), in Maremma. Sleeps 8/12, wide garden, swimming pool, Internet connection, air conditioning. Tennis courts, golf club and riding stable nearby.
The luxurious villa stands on a bluff in southern Tuscany, near Orbetello (Grosseto), in Maremma. In origin the building was a sighting tower erected around the year 1000 to protect the promontory, which at that time was in the hands of the Aldobrandeschis, from Saracen invasions. Many Etruscan-Roman archaeological finds have been found in the area of the villa.
Surrounded by the nature beauties of the Parco della Maremma, the villa enjoys a stunning view of Mount Argentario promontory, Porto Santo Stefano, Talamone, the hills of the Parco Naturale dell`Uccellina and the islands of Giglio, Giannutri and Montecristo.
