'La Rondine di Mare' is a charming villa set in an acre of Mediterranean countryside that boasts spectacular sea views. It is on a quiet road not overlooked by other properties. The house is very big and nicely divided so that everyone has some private space. The sitting room which has three double glass doors that lead outside. Two wings lead off the sitting room. The first leads the master bedroom. The other wing leads past the kitchen and dinning room, to a bunk bed room and shower room. The dinning room has a large round table which is ideal for feeding children or using when it rains and the kitchen is long and easily fits several adults cooking simultaneously. The kitchen has another exit that leads to the car park and terrace. Two short, external flights of stairs lead to the two guest suits. The house is decorated elegantly with an eclectic style of the well travelled.
There are 3 terraces. The main one off the sitting room has a teak dining table that seats up to 15 people and several trees that create very welcome shade from the summer sun. In addition there is a large square umbrella and pergola that has a canvas covering providing a large amount of shade. The gardens and grass lawns are ideal for sunbathing or playing catch with your children. The view from this side of the house is due west towards the island of Giglio. Most evening there are spectacular sunsets! On a clear day you can also see the islands of Monte Cristo and Corsica and if you are very lucky even Elba.
The second terrace has a bamboo roof and teak table for 4. We like breakfasting here or having an drink while looking at the island of Giannutri.
The kitchen terrace has recently been resurfaced and is a useful space for your children to play in while you cook or take a break at the other side of the house. There is also a dedicated area for drying clothes.
The Monte Argentario peninsular: You can explore the near by port of Santo Stefano and the marina at Porto Ercole with their fish stalls, markets, boutiques and restaurants. Take the ferry to the islands of Giglio and Giannutri or visit the inland medieval towns of Magliana in Toscana and Capalbio. Or even swim under the waterfall at the Saturnia hot springs.
A perfect location for all ages.
