This villa is featured in the new James Bond film 'Quantum of Solace', a sure sign of a classy accommodation! After undergoing a complete restoration Le Torre has become the ideal house to rent for extraordinary holidays by the Tuscan Coast. Tucked away in a magical corner of Southern Tuscany, perched up on top of a cliff which overlooks the sea, not too far from places of historical interest, and amongst the authentic natural wonders of the Maremma Natural Park, stands Le Torre, a historic Spanish tower erected to protect against the Saracen invasions. One cannot help but be impressed by the wonderful views and the natural beauty which appear before one's eyes and which can be fully appreciated from every corner of The Tower.
Your arrival is elegant. Just a few hundred meters through the Mediterranean scrub, you begin to see Le Torre, which is set on private land, closed with an electronic security gate. A small boulevard of magnificent agave cacti lead to the front door, creating a romantic and exotic atmosphere.
On entering the front door, to the right is a spacious dining area with fireplace and two double bedrooms each with independent bathrooms; one with bathtub facilities and the other with a shower. Continuing on, along the entrance corridor and to the left of the dining room, is a fully equipped modern kitchen and at the end of the corridor is a third bedroom. This too has its own bathroom.
At the end of this corridor there is a staircase which leads to the first floor. Here is an enormous living room, equipped with air conditioning and fireplace and from which one is free to admire a fabulous view at 180°. This living room is furnished with comfortable lounge chairs and couches on one side of the room and, on the other, there is a rectangular antique wooden table which can easily accommodate up to eight guests. From this living room, one has access to a splendid terrace which is divided into two areas: dining on one side and relaxation on the other, where we also find deckchairs suitable for sunbathing. The view from the terrace is breathtaking: it captures Porto S. Stefano and the hills of Mount Argentario on one side, and Talamone, with its charming walled town, and the hills of the Uccellina Natural Park on the other. One can also admire a spectacular view of the islands of Giannutri, Giglio and Montecristo, this last island being a very famous marine park. On returning to the open space on the ground floor there is a small staircase which leads to the lookout tower. This, too, has been restored, and is divided into two floors. It is made up of a double bedroom, with small bathroom containing shower facilities, walk in wardrobe and living room corner. From the second floor, one has access to a small terrace.
Le Torre is surrounded by two terraces, one of which has been transformed into a splendid panoramic lookout, amongst the greenery of the garden and deckchairs. It is the perfect place to sit and enjoy the wonderful sunshine, take a dip in the swimming pool or after sunset, to enjoy the company of good friends and a glass of wine around the barbecue. The villa also has its own walking trail which leads to the sea and a sunbathing deck.
