This stunning and elegant villa, originally a medieval watchtower, is located in one of the most striking corners of Tuscany, the Maremma coast, at just 2,5 km from the village of Fonteblanda and its shops and restaurants (26 km from Grosseto and Porto Santo Stefano; 150 from Roma airport). The tower has been fully restored and spectacular panoramas can be enjoyed from its terraces, perfect for enjoying a lovely dinner or barbecue or even just a glass of wine while admiring the sunset over the sea, and from the swimming pool (6x4 m, open June-Sept) below. A pathway leads down to the sea shore and the villa’s private sun deck. This wonderful property is in such a romantically beautiful position that a 007 movie, Quantum of Solace, was filmed here.
