Castellina Marittima, Livorno - Tuscany Le Cannelle

11 Bedrooms — 22 Pax

The stunning 13 hectares Estate Property, called Le Cannelle, is located in the ancient Etruscan county on the borderland of northern Maremma, on the hills of Ceceina at 300m above sea level, and 4km away from the village of Castellina Marittima. The Estate, placed within the wide, wild and environmentally protected nature reserved called Il Terriccio, includes 4 stone-houses resulting from a complete restructuring of farm houses dating back to the XVIII century. The works, carefully studied to assure particularly high standards, were carried out between 2007 and 2009 by the owners – the Rocco di Torrepadula family, as well as under the direction of a well-known Tuscan architect.

All of the houses are completely independent from each other, assuring the most privacy. Each house faces the Tyrrhenian Sea and the main Tuscan islands: Elba, Capraia, Gorgona and the French island of Corsica.

The compound offers its guests a 5 hectares garden, designed and grown by the internationally well-known architect Paolo Pejrone and his colleague Franco Brugo. Fruit plants of many different Mediterranean cultures can also be found in this incredible garden. The area also includes a large solarium, framing a 16 x 8 x 1.4 m fully equipped swimming pool, with a low water side for children, a patio with sun-beds and chairs, a one floor building hosting a changing room, a well furnished kitchen, a fitness room, and a bathroom. A large stone-made barbeque allows those to grill the delicious Tuscan t-bone steaks and sausages, and dine relaxed around a table under the shadow of the patio. A couple of glasses of Tuscan wine will also help create the ideal atmosphere, or choose between the world famous Chianti DOCG red wine, or Lupicaia-Castello del Terriccio – all easy to find since Le Cannelle is located close to vineyards and warehouses.
