Le Murella is a recently restored house set in a national park crowning the hill of MonteMarcello, in a small dell surrounded by Holm oaks. Set in its own terraced garden, this house is in an ideal position for exploring the hill villages and coast of the Cinque Terre, Liguria and Northern Tuscany; it’s also the perfect place to return to after your travels and relax under the pergola with a glass of local white wine.

Featured Property: Matchless, Marina di Scarlino

An elegant and rare sailing sloop on the Mediterranean

Unusually for Invitation to Tuscany, a sailing boat. But this is no normal sailing boat; it is a Swan 57, considered by many to be the Rolls Royce of yachts. Large enough for comfort yet fast enough for Regattas, this is a beautifully crafted vessel, built in the Nautor ShipYard in 1978 from a Sparkman & Stephens blueprint. Owned by a very good friend of ours, these vessels are rarely up for charter and are a delight to spend time on. Leave from Marina di Scarlino, in southern Tuscany, and navigate round the Mediterranean Isles, Corsica, Sardinia and the smaller islands. With an expert skipper on board you can participate in the sailing or lay back and sip your Campari as the mood takes you.

An ecologically sensitive hillside house with sea views…

As part of the many resources I have access to I am affiliated directly with this site and all it’s offerings.

Bernardino, Campiglia Marittima, Livorno

In a house that climbs the hillside it rests on, Bernardino is situated to savour the views of the wide Maremma plain that stretches below the medieval town of Campiglia Marittima and finishes on the horizon at the Mediterranean Sea. An excellent family house and certainly one in which to invite friends, it has terraces off each bedroom, which offer private retreat, yet spacious rooms and outdoor areas in which to gather. Though newly renovated, the house easily harmonizes with its surroundings, thanks to the careful use of local building materials and native vegetation that encircle the house in a varied palette of green. The owners have decided that their house should leave a light footprint on the land and with water and solar collectors and wind generated electricity have rendered it self-sufficient. While modern technology accomplishes these invisible marvels, what remains visible and delightful are the many spots in which one can relax into a memorable holiday.
