Overview

About the property

In the heart of Tuscany Ideally located for a relaxing holiday in thecountryside

This stunning stylish Villa with large garden and pool is set at few min by the sandy beach of Ansedonia in Capalbio seems to be coming out from a magazine or fairy tales book, Southern Tuscany. A strategic position in the quiet area in the countryside surrounded by historic sites and castles, and roman sites, olive trees, wine yards, green fields and hills.

The Villa belonged to Baron Gerardo Zampaglione (Rome, 1917- 1996), a career diplomat and author, who served as Italian Consul general in Calcutta, India, and Ambassador to Kuwait, Uae, Qatar, Pakistan, Switzerland, and Indonesia. An art collector and a passionate traveler, Ambassador Z. during his Foreign postings collected many old paintings and art pieces that our guest can admire and use in the Villa. His family, now living abroad, continues to keep in excellent condition with passion and sober taste this extraordinary site.

The villa is finely fitted and fully equipped to enjoy a first class stay in Tuscany. It was completely renovated in 2014 in a “globalist-chic style”, by the mix of precious antique pieces, functional modern furniture, and the colors of the Tuscany tradition.

It is perfect to taste the Genuine Tuscany taste: the crystal clear sea, the green hill and the wine yards, the historic lovely towns.

The main gate access (automatic) is through a private road with the typical cypresses along it that takes to the private shadowed parking available.

The villa has 2 completely independent units (the Large and Smart unit) with its own independent garden and privacy.

Here, most of the year the daytime is warm and is lovely to have lunch outside or read a book at the sunlight also in autumn or winter time. The house is very bright and charmy. Fresh in summer thanks to the solid large walls made by local stones (in addition is provided of air conditioning) and Warm in winter with new windows and an independent heating system.

One of the four bedroom is in a fascinating reading room with a huge library that offers a special environment. Another bedroom has a charm fireplace is it that in winter times make it very particular with special colors. In reality every corner and room of this house has a strong character.

General information

This villa is tailored to accomodate international travelers and businessmen. Perfect for family holidays, Italy explorations or just for a relaxing period away from chaos.

“Ambassador Z” Capalbio is the best choice for business or tourism travelers to Tuscany, or as a hub to visit Italy. The coast of Capalbio stretches over 12 kilometers and is characterized by long sandy beaches, shallow water and crystal clear water, bordered by the 'Macchia Mediterranea' vegetation. There are few entrance points to the beaches but they are easy to reach by car from the Aurelia road (SS1) and you'll find both free beach areas as well as areas with sun chairs, umbrellas and more. The surroundings are just as charming. Capalbio is also renowned for the beautiful Garden of Tarot Cards, located just a few kilometers from the ancient center. The garden is famous for the large sculptures created by the French artist Niki de Sante Phalle depicting the 22 Major Arcanes of the tarot cards.

Please consider that mobiles phones rarely has signal inside of around the Villa. They use to work at approx. 200mt by the house.

Great accomodation and Angelini Pharma event.

  • 5 of 5

Great accomodation and Angelini Pharma event.

We really appreciated the house very well located and the host efforts to let us explore the location like a local.

The annual Angelini Pharma as well was very well managed.

I look forward to experience another Mediterranea property soon.

Nice Rotary event and nice residence

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure to experience this beautiful residence tnks to the Roman Rotarian Society that arranged an event in Rome and this time selected the best properties in the central area.

We have been very satisfied of the house quality and service. First time for us in a holiday home and I have got to say that is a valuable alternative to hotels in terms of comfort, on the economics side I have noted that the organisation save a lot of money compared to the prior year budget.

Anyway, the area is serviced and Vanessa, our host is a very professional person that helped us a lot.

We are very happy that Rotary Club Italy entered in this partnership with Mediterranea Property Owners for our accomodations. Great price for value.

Not what it said on the tin

  • 1 of 5

I had booked the house back in January - both units. This was agreed explicitly by email. At first I said we'd be two families, then wrote at the very beginning of summer that three families would be coming.

Trouble started even before we arrived and then continued - we had to wait for about 45 minutes with the children in the baking afternoon heat to be let into a house that was closed and unaired, and prepared to a very minimum. We then had to fight to be given access to the second smaller unit. We then realised that the fridge wasn't working and the mosquito screens were mostly broken. We were all devoured by the mosquitoes throughout our stay - the kids especially.

All of these problems could have been fixed and soon forgotten had the rental management people been responsive. But from the moment we arrived, they were unhelpful and unwilling. Rather than admit that the fridge wasn't, they said we were putting too much inside. They admitted the mosquito screens were broken, but it would take time to have them replaced. I find it hard to believe that the house was renovated in 2014 considering its poor state. And for the rate we were charged (all in all about 10000 euros for 10 days!), you'd think a parasol might be installed near the dining area and the ugly old long plastic table removed.

Finally, but not least, the other huge deception is that Beatrice had also told me by email that the main house - which is part of the main property and next door to ours - belonged to an old lady 'who is never there' ('How likely is it that the other villa in the property will be used and therefore that we will need to share the pool? - usually the owner (an old lady) never comes. If comes she not use the pool. We write it " just in case if".) Well the old lady turned out to be the son accompanied by a variety of (changing) guests having dinner parties most nights. In the end they didn't bother us, but had we known we wouldn't have booked the house.

We were charged for everything and more - on top of the high rental rate we paid, we were charged extra and separately and extra for bed linen, towels and beach towels, electricity, a second set of keys, and cleaning. We also had to pay cash to avoid extra charges (5 Euros for every 100 Euros!). I refused to pay the damage deposit, since we were never provided with an inventory.

The rental management company misled us all the way, on every detail. We won't be repeating our mistake.

GREAT PRIZE

  • 5 of 5

We did not selected this vacation property, it was the prize of a Phama Company for the best pubblication of the year that I won.

First experience in a vacation property. I have to say that much better than a five stars hotel.

The house was perfect and clean. Fully equipped. The staff very kind and helpful.

The location superb to explore the Argentario area and relax.

Thank you ABBVIE and thank you Mediterranea.

Lovely choice

  • 5 of 5

Bea, Hanna and Olga are the best. They accommodates our family on such short notice after we had a change in plan and we were thrilled when we arrived. The villa is just as pictured, very clean and inviting. Everything we needed was here. If we chose to eat in the kitchen had all utensils and cookware we needed, plenty of restaurants for "tourists" in the area but Olga has some great suggestions for a more local experience which we much appreciated.

Thank you Bea, Olga and Hanna for being such great hosts and for checking in on us throughout our stay to make sure we had everything we needed.

Clean, Spacious, Nice Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this spacious apartment for five days. It is homey and nicely decorated and is in a very convenient location within walking distance by sea, park, natural reserve and restaurants. There is a supermarket with excellent fresh fruit and veggie a block away.

Olga and Marie met us upon arriving and took time to explain the workings of the apartment and helped with our orientation in the area. Bea was there also to make sure small repairs were attended to. We only used the kitchen for breakfast an lunch but found it well supplied. We wanted to enjoy the great Italian sea food cooking available in the restaurants.

We had a very comfortable stay in Capalbio. We would certainly recommend this to others. Thank you all
