Private Villa by the Sea
Our family really enjoyed the time spent in this home. As evident from the pictures, the views are simply outstanding. The house comes fully furnished and equipped with anything you could need, and the air-conditioned bedrooms were very welcomed. The trip to the beach was a quick one on bikes, though the trip down to sea level was always a bit 'exciting' on the narrow Italian roads.
More than anything, the best part of this house was the privacy. Unlike the neighboring properties, one can truly relax in the large pool with knowing nobody can see in. Makes it a bit less stressful using the outdoor shower as well! The boys could never get enough of the water.
Outside of the house, we spent lots of time at the uncrowded beaches soaking in the sun. Most nights were spent enjoying a gelato in nearby Porto Ercole. The most memorable day involved renting a small boat to circle the coastline, dropping anchor and jumping in the clear water wherever we wished.
Certainly nothing against the home, but a word of warning before visiting is that one should prepare with lots of mosquito repellant. Perhaps it's been a particularly bad summer, but they played a big part in our vacation adventure.
Many thanks to Ronald's son Patrick for the introduction to the home, and the follow-up help he provided, even during his own stressful travels. We would definitely recommend this home to our friends. The kids are still asking when we can go back to the big private pool with the nice view....
Stunning views from a wonderful property
The views from this property are exceptional. There are few things better than sipping your favourite tipple while watching the sun set behind the crescent beach. The beach itself is sandy and clean and is just a few minutes walk down the hill. We walked a little further through the beautiful pine forest, and found an area with a lifeguard and despite being early August and wonderfully hot, the beach was not crowded.
The property was well kept and well equipped. There are neighbouring properties so you don’t feel isolated, but you are not overlooked so enjoy total privacy. The gardens and private pool were a perfect retreat and were maintained on a daily basis. There is also a private parking space.
The property itself has two main bedrooms: a double upstairs and a twin downstairs. Both have air conditioning, which in August was essential. There is additional accommodation in a separate building in the garden (but we did not use this) and there is also a single bed on the upstairs landing though this does not have air conditioning. The bathroom is on the main floor. There is a good size, comfortable lounge with a fan (and an open fire), however with so much excellent outdoor space we didn’t use this very much either. There is a large patio area outside with table and chairs.
Our family of four (2 adults + 2 teenagers) enjoyed a wonderful week in this property – it is perfect if you want to relax or if you enjoy a beach style vacation. There are also some lovely medieval towns perched on top of the hills where you can stop for lunch or an ice-cream – but always take your swimming stuff as there is invariably an opportunity for a swim.
The owners of this property are extremely helpful and respond to questions very promptly – We highly recommend this property.
Thank you so much for your kind of words. We are so happy that you enjoyed our home as much as we do. It was a pleasure to have you as our guests and we hope you come back again another time.
The perfect villa for our family Easter holiday
This delightful villa, perched on the hill overlooking the bay at Ansedonia was a fantastic location for an Easter break with the family. We found villa to be really comfortable and perfect for our holiday. There are really great views from the terraces and balconies, and the extra “little house” in the garden is a fun addition to this luxurious villa. Although the villa has its own pool, it was only a short walk to the beach, for a long, lazy lunch at the friendly beach-side restaurant. We found several places nearby, for sight seeing. It was interesting to see what the Romans and Etruscans had built here, so long ago. Having stocked up on fresh local produce at a nearby farm shop, we cooked in the well equipped kitchen and ate our feast on the terrace, watching the sun set over the bay.
Stunning hillside villa overlooking the bay
This villa was in the most beautiful setting in the hills overlooking the bay. The villa itself is large and spacious, and tastefully furnished, and I had one of the most restful and relaxing holidays that I can ever recall. The villa has its own pool, or the beach was only a short stroll away, depending on the mood. There was also a selection of local restaurants within a short walk, or, if as we preferred, sit on the patio with a tall glass of something cold, and watch the sun set over the magnificent panorama spread out before you. First class.
Pleased you enjoyed it. Hope you come back again.
Awesome! Five Star! Romantic! Luxury!
I first rented this amazing villa and annex for my honeymoon 15 years ago. It was pure luxury and so romantic. The views are breathtaking and the facilities second to none. I have come back again and again since my children were babies. They are now 9 and 13 and we all love it. The children love the pool, beach, the food, the wildlife - everything! At Easter, when the weather was sometimes not perfect for the beach, we have enjoyed day trips to Saturnia natural mud and sulphur baths, followed by widl boar steaks in Capalbio, finsihed off with a relaxing swim in the outdoor heated pool. I would recommend this dream house for romantic breaks and family holidays alike? Outstanding views and the height of comfort and relaxation. Highly recommended.
Delighted you continue to enjoy it!
A luxury home from home
We have stayed in this gorgeous villa 3 times now and have never been disappointed. The owners are so helpful and they make sure everything is just right for us. The villa is always immaculate and you can tell that it's loved as their home too. There is a good pool in the gardens which we tended to use in the mornings but the beach is so close so we would wander down for lunch (usually at Capannuccia) and some sunbathing later in the day. This is a great area, and there's lots to see and do if you have the energy, but we love to just de-stress and relax. Recommend a fun shopping trip at the local market in Orbetello, we've always come home with some great Italian leather bargains! Will be back before too long.
Thanks for appreciating our home and come back soon!
Ansedonia is located on a small promontory up to 114 meters above sea where a long, narrow strip of land called the Tombolo of Feniglia joins the Maremma coast. The two terraces have a stunning view of the Monte Argentario, the bay and the Lagunas.
Ansedonia is a place where the villas are almost hidden by the lush green Mediterranean vegetation. Most of these buildings are quite recent, in fact before the 1950’s there were only the ancient ruins of the Etruscan town of Cosa and the towers of S. Pancrazio, S. Biagio and Puccini. Today, the villas are owned by celebrities, politicians, businessmen, intellectuals and those who choose to come here to have privacy for their summer holidays.
Ansedonia is a very quiet site, the narrow streets which cross the promontory open themselves to the green vegetation and even in summer, when it’s populated, the strongest noises are the songs of the cicadas.
750 metres from the house is a 6km long sandy beach. At the beginning are two beach restaurants where you can enjoy delicious local dishes and seafood, while taking in the view of the sea and coastline.
