About the property

Villa Saracino

This picturesque farmhouse with panoramic views of the Tuscan countryside has been converted into villas for the enjoyment of the discerning few. It has been designed to make you feel at home, with its own kitchen and outdoor terrace. This house was newly renovated in 2004. The outdoor terrace is fully furnished and perfect for eating al fresco, watching the sun set or greeting each new dawn. Located in the town of Rosignano Marittimo, in the providence of Livorno, which is just twenty minutes from Camp Darby and Pisa Airport. This estate is located in the heart of Tuscany within striking distance of cultural centres of major artistic interest. Right off the Etruscan coastline of Tuscany, this casa crowns a panoramic view of the village leading down to the Mediterranean Sea. The villa has its own entrance and terrace area furnished.

Property Information: The present owners are an Italian-American couple who inherited the estate and immediately started to renovate this once active farmhouse into a vacation getaway. Completed in 2004, this elegant farmhouse was converted into four private villas. The owners reserved one for themselves, which they retreat away from New York life about six months of the year. The owners are fluent in both English and Italian. They take great pride in providing personal care of all the accommodations, needs, and interests of their guests. Guests are invited to stroll among the estates vineyards and olive groves for sampling of the homemade wine and olive oil. They are also encouraged to ask any questions they may have. This estate covering an area of approximately 17 acres blends into the harmonious scenery of the Tuscan countryside, where green hills slope down towards the horizon and woods alternate with vineyards and olive groves.

A jewel inTuscany

  • 5 of 5

We spent one full week at this location and it was perfect for our needs. We wanted to fully experience life in a Tuscan village and this was it. The location is perfect, if you have a car, and we were able to day trip to all the wonderful sites, such as Luca, Cinque Terre, Pisa, San Gimignano and Livorno easily. Our hosts were wonderful and welcomed us as though we were family. They provided lots in insight into the local area as we enjoyed walks in the village of Rosignano Marittimo. The meal provided on our arrival was spectacular. We would do this again without a doubt.

Look no further...

  • 5 of 5

If you are interested in a quiet base location for a visit to Tuscany and it's historic towns and cities you have found it. Aside from being about the nicest hosts you could ask for, Tony and Antoinette offer clean, carefully restored accomodation that compliments the style of old Italy with modern appliances and fixtures. Our apartment was large. airy and very comfortable and the direct access to the patio made dining outdoors very convenient. We did have a car and spent our days exploring the area. Aside from the mandatory trips to Pisa and Florence we particularly enjoyed visits to Lucca, Volterra and San Gimignano that were all an easy drive away. Thanks again folks for an excellent vacation.

wunderschön gelegene Ferienwohnung, perfekt um die Toskana zu erkunden

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung liegt am nördlichen Ende von Rosignano Marittimo, am Ende einer Schotterstrasse. Im Obergeschoß leben die Vermieter, im Erdgeschoß sind die Ferienwohnungen. Von der großzügigen, sonnigen Terrasse kann man ins Grüne schauen und nachts diversen Tieren lauschen. Die Wohnung hat alles was man braucht (Fernsehen nur italienisch). Wohnung und Anlage sind sauber und sehr gepflegt. Die Vermieter, ein älteres Ehepaar, sind freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Das Zentrum von Rosignano Marittimo ist in wenigen Minuten zu Fuß zu erreichen. Größere Supermärkte sind im Nachbarort. Der Ort wird überragt von einer Burg und man hat einen herrlichen Blick auf das Meer. Zum Mittelmeer sind es ca. 10 km. Es gibt nicht viele Touristen, so dass man typisch italienisches Kleinstadtflair genießen kann.

Aufgrund der Lage ist die Stadt ein guter Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge nach Pisa, Lucca, Florenz, Volterra, San Gimignano oder Siena. In Vada kann man den Sandstrand genießen, wenn man Platz findet. Etwas südlicher werden die Strände breiter, nördlich sind die Buchten zwar sehr schön aber steinig.

Wir bedanken uns für einen wunderschönen, sonnigen Urlaub, in einer traumhaft gelegenen Unterkunft.

Owner's Response: Dear Katrin B., Thank you for your review, but there is a mistake. Please correct the statement ( Zum Mittelmeer sind es ca. 10 km). Our property is approximately only 3 km from the Mediterranean Sea. Vielen Dank für deinen Beitrag, aber es ist ein Fehler. Bitte korrigieren Sie die Anweisung (Zum Mittelmeer Sind es ca. 10 km). Unser Property liegt nur 3 km vom Mittelmeer sind es. Kind regards, Antoinette

die besten Vermieter!!! Weiterempfehlung

  • 5 of 5

Wir (2 junge Frauen) haben auf unserer kleinen Reise durch Italien für 5 Nächte in einer Wohnung der Villa Saracino genächtigt und hatten eine wunderbare Zeit. Das Haus ist schöner als auf den Bildern. Das liebe Vermieter Paar wohnt ebenfalls mehrere Monate im Jahr in diesem Haus und hat unseren Urlaub perfekt gemacht!! Wir durften so viel Unterstützung und Freundlichkeit erleben. Als Krönung haben sie uns mehrmals frisch gepflückte Früchte gebracht - köstlich! Man kann sie einfach nur lieb gewinnen. Ein Auto vor Ort zur Verfügung zu haben wäre deutlich von Vorteil. Das Haus befindet sich auf einem Berg mit einem tollen Ausblick und dazu bieten die Insekten eine entspannende Geräuschkulisse. Toskana Feeling pur. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und gemütlich. Die Renovierung der größten Wohnung wurde im Mai 2016 fertig gestellt und sieht wunderbar aus. Ungefähr 6 Kilometer entfernt befindet sich ein traumhafter weißer Strand. Auch andere Orte (z.B. Florenz, Pisa, San Gimignano und Siena) sind von dort in wenigen Stunden (ca 1-2 Stunden) zu erreichen. Weiterempfehlung!

Unterkunft für Liebhaber der ruhigeren Art

  • 5 of 5

Zu zweit waren wir der geräumigen Einheit, welche über sämtliche Notwendigkeiten einer Ferienwohnung verfügt. Das Anwesen liegt abseits der großen Touristenströme, mit dem Fahrzeug ist man jedoch in maximal 1,5 Stunden bei den Highlights der Toskana. Herausragend war das zurückhaltende Entgegenkommen der beiden mega-gästeorientierten Vermieter - an dieser Stelle nochmals danke an Euch, Antoinette und Tony. Auch lädt die Terrasse bei gutem Wetter ein zum Faulenzen, während letztgenannter mit seinem Traktor in den Olivenhainen ums Haus rum seine Runden dreht... Hört man jedoch nicht, da die Natur, allen voran die Vögel und die Frösche, Ihr Konzert zum Besten geben! Einfach Urlaub in Italien einfach gestalten.

A lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

In one word: Perfect

Spacious appartment, clean, well equiped, large terrace.

Walking distance from village with shops and a few restaurants.

The owners are lovely people, helpfull where needed.

Larger towns, beach and historical sites nearby (5-15 minutes by car).

Cities like Pisa, Livorno (and somewhat further Florence and Sienna) possible to visit as daytrip (with own car).

Very much recommended.
