Perched above the wildly romantic and rugged Monte Argentario coastline, with spectacular views towards the islands of Giglio and Giannutri, Villa Pecadillo is the perfect Porto Ercole retreat to relax, and escape the world. Part of a private compound but totally independent the Villa is set in extensive and very private gardens of pine trees and bushes.
The character of its interesting and much travelled owner is evident everywhere in her eclectic collection of books, china artefacts and vibrant colours of its furnishings – with a dash of Mexico, Orient, Africa, and elegant Italian style to make a wonderfully unusual and welcoming place to stay both in summer and winter.
With 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, 10 people can be comfortably accommodated. Outdoor, summer living is at its best here, with shaded areas, sofas and hammocks, and plenty of chairs, as well as sun-beds. Down stone stairs to the sea, you will find a natural swimming pool, with stone wall protection. Swim right in the warm, blue Mediterranean Sea.
The villa has beamed ceilings, terracotta floors, and pure Italian style. The kitchen is very well equipped and has a breakfast room, adjoining it. A large, open plan living/dining room area, leads to a charming sunken sitting area with fireplace, which is cosy even in the coolest days. From here steps lead up to an open mezzanine/study area, with a four poster Indonesian Bed/Sofa, for writing or reading, from where it is quite easy to be inspired looking at the sea and skyline.
Outside, there are several dining areas and extensive terraces/gardens with sun-beds and sofas, for sunny or shade idly chatting. Professional wood Pizza oven and barbecue are set outside next to dining area. There is also a dependence with a double room and small en suite bathroom with shower. A rustic garden pathway/steps lead down to a sunbathing area, and a natural sea water “pool” with fantastic rock formations and private, shaded or not, places to sunbath and read. On the way to the sea external shower and changing facilities are provided. An excellent cook can be provided (extra charge). A boat with captain can be rented from Porto Ercole. At night, watching the sun set over Giglio island opposite is as romantic as it gets.
