Torre delle Cannelle, Tuscany Coast Villa
Path from the Villa to the Beach
Torre delle Cannelle (Cannelle Tower) is a special, unique holiday place, in that it is an original Renaissance coastal tower from the 16th century, now converted into a vacation villa for 12 people.
Its location is stunning, on the superb Maremma Natural Park coast in Southern Tuscany, overlooking the sea from a clifftop and with direct private access to the beach, on a promontory of the Uccellina Mountains between the promontories of Cala di Forno (Forno Cove) and Talamone.
In this little blue and green paradise of crystalline waters and Mediterranean vegetation, the Medicis, Florence ruling dinasty, built in the late 1500s this watchtower to protect the Grand Duchy of Tuscany's southernmost stretch of coast from pirates and invaders.
Torre delle Cannelle is a tower of characteristic square shape and rare beauty, within the splendid 100-acres wildlife reserve protected area of the Natural Park of Maremma (Parco Naturale della Maremma).
Torre delle Cannelle tower is square, surrounded by a small courtyard enclosed by outer walls, and has external stairs with a drawbridge.
The holiday villa affords breathtaking views of the whole coast, including Monte Argentario Promontory and the Island of Giglio.
Part of The Large Private Garden
Torre delle Cannelle, on a sloping rock overlooking the sea, has the best of both worlds: it is very secluded, far away from traffic, noise, streets and crowds, but at the same time it is less less than 3 miles from the town of Talamone, with shops, restaurants, bars, banks and similar facilities.
Tuscan Maremma, this protected area of still unspoilt wild beauty, has a very mild climate and an extremely varied landscape which includes hills, pine forests, marshes, cultivated fields and pastures, with long sandy beaches, rocks and cliffs.
The surroundings of the holiday villa offer beautiful itineraries, both walking and driving. The Natural Park of Maremma of which the villa is part has several natural paths and trails. The 4-kilometre access unpaved road to the villa is through the Maremma Natural Park, going along which you may be lucky enough to see roe deer, fallow deer, porcupines, wild boars, hawks and other wild inhabitants of the nature reserve.
The nearby town of Talamone is a lovely resort with beaches and historical sites, while few miles south of Torre delle Cannelle is the glorious Monte Argentario Promontory coast and the resorts of Porto S. Stefano and Porto Ercole, well known for their beauty.
North of the villa along the gorgeous coast are the renowned, pretty seaside resorts and historical towns of Castigione della Pescaia, Follonica, Campiglia Marittima, San Vincenzo and Castagneto Carducci with its Marina, all worth visiting.
The hinterland, both north in Tuscany and south in Lazio, Rome's region, is full of Etruscan towns and sites, like Volterra and Tarquinia.
And do not forget daytrips to Siena, Pisa, Florence, Rome, which are all between 50 and 100 miles from the villa.
Torre delle Cannelle Villa, surrounded by luxuriant vegetation, has several very large furnished terraces all around it, all with spectacular sea views, for sunbathing, drinks or romantic candlelit dinners.
