About the property

This charming and comfortable villa is situated on 5 acres of olive groves surrounded by rolling Tuscan hills with breathtaking views. It lies in the unspoilt region of Maremma where tourism goes hand-in-hand with local traditions. It was rebuilt by the owners with love and care. The fenced garden is suitable for families with children. It has a well manicured garden and a beautiful loggia to watch the sunset. It has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and sleeps 10 + 2 upon request. The living room is airy and the kitchen is fully equipped. On the right side of the house is a pergola with a barbeque and an al fresco dining area with direct access to the kitchen. The pergola overlooks a 12 x 6 m landscaped private pool with a diving board. In various parts of the house there are al-fresco dining areas and different locations to relax depending on your mood. The property provides complete privacy. We recently finished the pool house with open bar to enjoy your long evenings by the pool under the Tuscan sun.

About Rita

We purchased our dream house 'Il Peperoncino' in 2000. When we first bought it, it only had 1 room! We have slowly rebuilt it with patience and care for our whole family to enjoy. We are very happy to share it with guests who have become friends over the years. The essence is 'Il dolce far niente.'

Why Rita chose Castiglione della Pescaia

Once you enter the gates, it feels like you have reached THE place to unwind. Maremma is a special part of Tuscany where local traditions are very much alive and the towns around us are unique and unspoilt. The proximity of clean and blue flag beaches made our choice much easier. Sailing in the waters around is a true experience which I hope you will enjoy.

The house had a lot of potential and you will see the results when you come. The wine is divine and our olive oil, no words! We knew we could slowly revive the old olive grove and make pure and delicious olive oil, eat pesticide free fruit and vegetables, cook with our herbs straight from the garden surrounding the house and enjoy La Dolce Vita. A dream come true which we are happy to share with you. 😊

What makes this villa unique

The unique features are many to enjoy - views, private pool, garden, sitting under the many pergolas with more stunning views, proximity to beautiful beaches, amazing towns, food, food and more food! Culture, excursions, sailing to the islands such as Giglio, Giannutri, Monte Cristo, Elba...

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful vacation. We felt taken care of in this stunning part of Tuscany. Very helpful staff, comfort food in nearby restaurants at reasonable prices, vineyard tours which Rita helped organize, visiting nearby spectacular towns, beautiful beaches and of course coming back to a wonderful home and pool. This is what a perfect vacation should be. The house has every comfort and lacks nothing. Thank you!

Outstanding VIlla and unforgetful view

We had a great time in this newly redone house. The big kitchen is a wonderful addition for our family. Very cozy and bright new rooms, super efficient assistance, great outdoors, big living room for a family gathering that we were celebrating.

Danke schön!

Excellent holiday, very quiet, good for dogs!

  • 5 of 5

It was a very lovely and quiet holiday. The pool is amazing! The communication with Rita was excellent. Every question was answered in minutes, it was a big help. all little thinks could be fixed instantly.

The compound is especially good for holiday with dogs!

It´s a remote location, so it is very quiet and seems safe. Nonetheless is the little "town" Grilli around the corner for grocery-shopping etc.

Thank you very much for this very relaxing holiday dear Rita!

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is beautiful, very well equipped with facilities for eating and even cooking outdoors, barbecue and outdoor hob.

The setting is stunning, we loved the total privacy, the kids could have fun and enjoy the pool and gardens without worrying they were being too loud!

Due to the gardens and pool, the kids just loved spending most days at the villa, which made it really quite relaxing for us ( and that's with an 8 & 5 year old!

Any questions and Rita was always available to help.

On the last day of our holiday we booked again for next year!

Looking forward to it already

Was in der Beschreibung versprochen wird, wird gehalten. Das Haus ist geräumig, geschmackvoll eingerichtet und in der Küche fehlt es an nichts.

Sehr geeignet für 2 Paare (mit 2 Kindern). Sucht man Ruhe ist man am richtigen Ort. Grilli mit ca. 200 Einwohnern ist 4 km entfernt. Dort findet man 3 Restaurants, eine Apotheke und 2 Einkaufsläden, wo alles für den Tagesbedarf erhältlich ist. Zum Strand sind es 17 km (20 Minuten).

Die Betreuung von Rita im Vorfeld der Ferien und von Claudia (aus Stuttgart) bei der Hausübergabe sind vorbildlich und zuvorkommend.

Leider waren wir nur 1 Woche da. Eine 2. Woche hätten wir noch gut ertragen!
