Location and Surrounding Area. Situated in one of Tuscany’s most memorable destinations, just a few kilometers from the coast, this magnificent six-bedroom property is ideally located to offer complete privacy and tranquility to its guests, providing a unique escape for those who want to explore this diverse area which is home to Etruscan villages, hot springs, unspoiled countryside and crystal-clear sea. Immersed in the heart of Southern Maremma, Villa Dell’Artista is just a stone’s throw away from Capalbio, an alluring town which stands at the top of a hill covered with typical Maremma brush. Because of its elegance, over the years Capalbio has become a holiday destination for the elite, drawn by the evocative atmosphere in the streets and the ancient castle that dominates the valley below.
This territory hosts a wealth of attractions from the inland areas all the way to the coast, where high cliffs are alternated with little beaches and coves. An elegant destination in this area is definitely the Argentario with its seaside villages, including Porto Stefano, Porto Ercole and Orbetello, a unique town nestled on a narrow strip of land stretching through the middle of an enchanting lagoon which bears the same name. In tune with its surroundings, the town’s trade has always been fishing, made easy by the shallow waters of the lagoon, famous for its exquisitely flavored fish and their derivative delicacies: try the anguilla sfumata, a crunchy and slightly acidic dish perfect for a sunset aperitivo paired with unforgettable views of soaring flamingos.
The villa is just half-an-hour drive from Magliano, which together with Scansano is known for its vineyards producing the delicious Morellino di Scansano wine. The town of Magliano, which boasts a pleasing medieval aspect, is on the top of a hill cultivated with vines and olive trees right in the middle of the Grosseto Maremma, whose natural park extends into the town’s municipal territory, while Scansano is halfway between the coast and the slopes of Monte Amiata in a landscape offering astonishing panoramas. In less than one hour by car, you can easily reach Saturnia, home to the famous Saturnia Hot Springs, where thermal waters flow at a rate of 800 liters a second at a constant temperature of 37 degrees centigrade, attracting visitors from all over the world.
In less than one hour by car, you can also reach Pitigliano, a fairytale-like village also known as “Little Jerusalem” because of the influence of its large Jewish community, and Grosseto, capital of the region and home to priceless art treasures including the striking Piazza del Duomo, where the pink and marble façade of the Cathedral of San Lorenzo stands out. The villa is also just one-hour drive from Sorano: founded on a fortress that the centuries have worn down into a natural cliff, and refined by Renaissance architecture, the town is surrounded by imposing walls that made it one of the most secure defensive layers on the township of Pitigliano.
