About the property

Villa Anna near the sea

Our stylish natural stone villa is on a hill in the middle of the expansive property and offers an unobstructed view of the beautiful lake or the Tuscan landscape from all rooms. All rooms are tastefully equipped with antique Wilhelminian furniture and have a comfortable bathroom and a terrace or balcony.

The villa has a large kitchen (compl. for 25 people), an outdoor fireplace for grilling or baking pizza, different terraces, lounger and grill spaces, fire pits, etc.

In the well-lit recreation room with internal fireplace, stylish wooden tables and chairs and a cosy sitting corner, all guests will find space to be together. However, you can also enjoy the privacy in the middle of Mediterranean plants on the stunning property.

For guests who want an active holiday, the house has a private lake, sand beach area and the surrounding forest with a lot of options like swimming, jogging, cycling, horse riding or volleyball.

Our villa has a 33 hectare property with forest, fields, orchards and a private lake of about 100x200m. You can walk a few meters from your terrace between cypresses and fruit trees to the lake. Here there are 2 docks. One is right by the house, the other is on our beach sand field for refreshing after a game (22x15m). Swim at your own risk.

In addition to active relaxation, those searching for tranquillity can also relax in our expansive garden under old trees or palm trees.

The forest borders the property directly with Tuscan trees, like pine, stone and cork oak. From here, you can take a hiking path to the medieval city of Sassetta. Here you will have a fantastic view of the hilly landscape and the other villages with their typical Tuscan construction. You can also discover the region by bicycle or horse. There are possibilities to go mountain hiking, mountain climbing, horse riding and in just 20 minutes, you can get to the Etruscan coast. Here there are still lonely beaches, but also lively holiday cities with a variety of cafes, bars, nice restaurants and possibilities to go shopping. The coast offers possibilities for sailing, kites, diving, fishing and a lot more

The house is ideal for a holiday in a group, because on the one hand you have your privacy. On the other hand, there are a lot of communal places and rooms in order to cook, play music, paint, play, etc. together.

The charm of the villa with the expansive premises offers the possibility to just fall and reopen. In this ambiance, you can participate in different courses and seminars. Renowned painters, musicians, perma-culture people share their mutual hobbies and will enrich your knowledge and abilities. Plus, contacts are made and new friendships will surely be made.

A lot of groups rent the house for private purposes in order to, for example, celebrate a wedding or organize a meeting with family and friends. You will not be interrupted in your time with your family and friends and you can use the entire villa for yourself with the spacious premises.

And last, but not least, we can offer you the villa for your own courses, conferences and workshops. You take care of the participants or lecturers and we will provide professional support by the organization and catering.

Information about the internet:

In the beginning of 2012, we installed a modern system for TV and internet. Since then, both cable TV and WLAN have been working fine. Before, the reception ran through older telephone lines and was often disrupted in the reception.


(Is important, because you cannot find the house through GPS with the address, but rather only through the GPS coordinates. Sassetta is easy to reach, but after that you need more information, because the Via Campagna Sud leads in multiple directions and around the city of Sassetta.)

(GPS-data is 43° 7'22.90'N, 10°42'59.42'O)

AB Brenner - Trento - Verona - Modena - Bolgna - Florence and then either over the highway to Pisa and Livorno past the highway on the coast E80 or you can also take the highway from Florence until another exit and take the quick road south of the highway, which also leads to the coastal street. The exit on the coastal street (street between Livorno and Grossetto) is Donoratico. From here, you can drive through Castagneto Carducci directly to Sassetta. The city of Sassetta is listed on the highway exit in Donoratico.

But now it is important!

In Sassetta, you have to go left past the gas station toward Monterotondo before the actual centre with the church and market square. Once km 6 is shown on the right side of the street, you have to drive 1.5 km more and as soon as you see the power line on the left side in a field, take the small path to the sign 'Oase Sant Anna' on the right, this will lead you over a small river and then you can see the lake on the left side and the house on top of the hill....

(If you miss the exit to the house on the right, you will get to an intersection on the left towards Cannetto and go straight to Massa Marittima or Suvereto. Then you have driven too far, turn around and drive back about 300 m. Now you will see the wooden sign 'Oase Sant Anna' on the left side and a small path leads over the river past the lake to the house.)

The villa is ideal for a group holiday, this means with friends, family or also for seminars. To do this, you can either organize the catering in the large and comfortable kitchen alone (also with products from our biological agriculture) or use the services of our cook (for breakfast and/or lunch and/or dinner). In principle, the equipment of the house is very comfortable and leaves nothing to be desired. We offer a beautiful house with a lot of garden and land for all ages and interests. By us, kids can play on the land and lake and watch animals, couples can celebrate their wedding, groups can paint, play music or do sports, but you can also have rest and relaxation under cypress trees and Mediterranean plants. Even dogs are welcome, provided they are peaceful and their owners take care of their 'business'.....

Nie wieder weg !!!

  • 5 of 5

So ... der letzte Wein ist getrunken, die letzten Oliven gegessen mittlerweile sind einige Wochen vergangen, doch die Erinnerung an diesen traumhaften Ort ist noch so stark, als wäre es gestern gewesen. Unglaublich schön! Wir waren mehrere Familien mit jeder Menge Kindern, unglaublich vielen unterschiedlichen Erwartungen, Interessen und Vorlieben. Alles kein Problem, auf Santa Ana hatten alle einen traumhaften Urlaub. Morgens durch die Felder joggen, danach ein Bad im See, Frühstück mit Leckereien aus der Gegend, den ganzen Tag mit dem Boot zu Piratenschlachten auf dem See oder Streifzüge durch die Bergdörfer oder Strände in der Gegend ... alles kann, nichts muss !!! Die Pferde, Schweine, Hunde, Esel, Rinder usw. sind da nur das Tüpfelchen auf´s "i". 1000 Dank für eine warmherzige Betreuung und eine traumhafte Woche !!!

Ort zum Wohlfühlen

  • 5 of 5

Den vielen positiven Bewertungen schließe ich mich voll an. Das Haus ist in hervorragendem Zustand, der Badesee ist ein Traum und das Personal ,ist ausgesprochen gastfreundlich und zuvorkommend. Die Verpflegung ist reichhaltig, täglich gibt es viele frische Produkte, zum großen Teil aus eigenem Anbau. Man ist inmitten von wunderbarer Natur und trotzdem nicht weit entfernt von schmucken Städtchen und dem Meer. Ich kann dieses Haus uneingeschränkt empfehlen und werde gern wieder darin zurück kehren.

Tolle Location

  • 5 of 5

Wie immer ein Traum ! Das Haus, der See, die Umgebung - alles passt und macht Lust auf mehr. Der Verwalter ist super freundlich. In der nahen Umgebung gibt es viele kleine Restaurants mit toskanischen Spezialitäten. Ein Beachvollyballfeld sorgt für sportliche Betätigung. Das Haus ist einem sehr ordentlichen und gepflegten Zustand. Gerne jederzeit wieder !

Malworkshop im Mai 2013

  • 4 of 5

Die Woche Urlaub in der Toskana war wieder sehr schön. Die Zimmer sind gepflegt und gemütlich. Neben einem guten Frühstück (mit frischem Obstsalat) wurden Mittags und Abends einfache aber sehr gute Landestypische Gerichte serviert. Die vielen Tiere (Hühner, Gänse, Schweine, Enten, Rinder, Ziegen und Pferde) haben freiwillig Modell gestanden. Es war bei dem guten Wetter sogar möglich in dem hauseigenen See zu schwimmen.

Oase für befreundete Familien

  • 5 of 5

Als wir die Villa Anna mit vier Familien vor fast einem Jahr reservierten, dachten wir, dass es ein Traumurlaub werden muss, wenn nur die Hälfte der Angaben im Online-Inserat stimmen. Im Nachhinein müssen wir feststellen, dass unsere Erwartungen weit übertroffen wurden:

Das Haus ist optimal für Familien, die mit Freunden zusammen verreisen. Da unsere Kinder im Alter zwischen 7 und 17 Jahren sind, wird es immer schwerer, für alle das angemessene Ziel zu finden. Neben der tollen Aufteilung des Hauses mit Terassen und Liege- und Spielmöglichkeiten um das Haus herum, war der eigene See der beliebteste Aufenthaltsort für große und kleine Schwimmer. Auch der Beachvolleyballplatz mit kleiner "Flutlichtanlage" wurde gerne genutzt.

Neben dem riesigen Grundstück, was keine Wünsche offen ließ, faszinierte die Sportlichen unter uns das Gelände um das Haus herum, das sich zum Joggen und Mountainbike fahren anbot. Die kulturell interessierten besuchten Florenz und Sienna, die mit dem Auto gut erreichbar waren. Gerne wären wir noch Wochen in der Villa Anna geblieben! Alle Kinder haben gesagt, dass sie wieder mit in die Toskana fahren möchten - natürlich nur in die Villa Anna.

True Oasis in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a gated area with its own lake, which has crystal clear water inviting you to dive in. The rooms are nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable and you don't escape to Tuscany to stay in your room!

From the villa, there are numerous quaint medieval villages nearby to explore or the Mediteranean coast for beach recreation.

The owners, Annette and Tom, are friendly and welcoming. The place is truly unique with all varieties of animals and plants on the premises. For the culinary inclined, there is a wood oven stove and a large BBQ grill.

Don't choose this place if you want to stay connected to the world 24/7 or if you are looking for "luxury." But this is THE place to get away from it all and enjoy the best aspects of a Tuscan vacation - amazing scenery, great food and wine, and the opportunity to conveniently sightsee or to do nothing at all. We did a lot of hanging out/sunbathing on a dock in the middle of our own private lake. Fantastic vacation - thanks!!

The villa with a lake is located beautifully on a hill not far from the picturesque city of 'Sassetta'. Nearby you will find nice medieval cities with their typical Tuscan flair, like Castagneto Carducci, Campiglia, Marittima, Massa Marittima, Populonia and much more.

In twenty minutes, you can reach the Etruscan coast. Here there are still lonely beaches, but also lively holiday cities with a variety of cafes, bars, nice restaurants and possibilities to go shopping. The sea (Gulf of Baratti or San Vincenzo) offers a lot of options for sailing, kite surfing, diving, fishing, etc.

There are ferry connections for an excursion to the island of Elba and other distant destinations like Pisa, Sienna, San Gimignano or Florence can also be reached comfortably by car.

An excursion to Capalbio to the art park 'Giardino dei Tarocchi' from Niki de Saint Phalle is worth it, along with a visit to the wonderful natural spas in Saturnia.

Miscellaneous activities: Kite surfing
