Torre Saracena

Heavenly fortress on the sea

Imagine that you are on a yacht with all around you the rustle of gentle sea breeze and waves.  You get the same experience at this luxury property, but instead of water you have the solid land beneath you and a location that is second to none.  Dating back almost 1000 years ago, when there were no limitations on where to build, this unique, restored and refurbished 13th century Saracen watchtower is enjoys the best location of the whole coast, less than two hours from Rome or Siena, in the southernmost corner of Tuscany.  Situated atop a promontory with the clear blue Maremma Sea in front and on both sides, this luxury property offers supreme views that include the Tuscan coast, gorgeous yachts moored next to traditional fishing boats, the walled-town of Talamone and the small islands of Giglio and Montecristo.  This type of property is rarely privately owned and maintained and the villa’s exotic and romantic ambience is enchanting.  A gated, private road that is lined with magnificent agave cacti leads you to the front door and, once you have recovered from the spectacular views outside, you will find the interior comfortable and appropriately furnished.  You will feel as if you are living in the tower of a castle, yet also enjoy all the benefits of modern satellite and communications technology and modern appliances, as well as exclusive use of a private beach and private swimming pool.  The original watchtower now includes a super double bedroom en suite, walk-in wardrobe, living area/corner and a private terrace one level above.

This is a luxury property that can accommodate up to 12 guests in 4 double bedrooms in the main building and a further 2 double bedrooms in an annex.  This part of the property also includes a living and dining area, as well as a private terrace with beautiful sea view.  3 bedrooms in the main part of the building are off the long entrance corridor on the ground floor, from which you also access a dining area with fireplace, a fully- equipped modern kitchen and stairs leading up to a luminous living area and terrace outside.  This has a fabulous 180° panorama view and furnished for you comfortably relax and dine al fresco. From the garden a rocky path on the seaward side of the villa leads down to a small private beach with sunbathing deck.  This is shared with one property located on the other side of the cliff, which has separate access so that utmost privacy is assured.  Another garden path on the other side of the villa takes you down to lovely swimming pool and sunbathing deck, which is for your exclusive use and provides yet more fabulous views.

In an area that is fast becoming popular for an exclusive holiday, this unique luxury property is ideal for a special occasion -honeymoon, romantic getaway, family celebration – and memorable holiday on the Italian coast.  It is a fortress of seclusion and tranquility in an enviable location offering the most beautiful views, but we would suggest this is a property more suited for adults due to the rocky nature of the villa’s surroundings and beach.
