Take a spacious 18th Century Farmhouse in Tuscany’s Maremma, placed close to the Sea, add the divine inspiration of a brilliant designer and aristocratic owner, who treasures tradition, the modern spirit and lovely colours all at the same time. Then add a beautiful garden, designed by award winning garden architect Arabella Lennox-Boyd, a 12 meter long pool, a tennis court, a full staff including a Cook, and you have the perfect mix for a privileged and idyllic holiday for family, friends, or even business associates.
La Civetta in Tuscany’s Maremma offers a serene and exclusive retreat for 14 people in 7 Bedrooms and 6 Bathrooms. Set amidst majestic cypress, and shady umbrella pine, on well-kept lawns, sprinkled with fruit trees and aromatic borders of rosemary and sage, and with panoramic views to the sea, the scene is pleasing to every sense. In addition to a Pool and Tennis court, you will be offered, only 12 minutes away, private access to the Mediterranean beach, with picnic cabana, shower, sun beds and changing cabin. For your comfort there will be one professional cook, two housekeepers, and a gardener who also looks after the pool.
The house is full of the kind of stylish character that we love, mixing a connoisseur’s selection of antiques and objects, with a sense of whimsy and pure style. The entry level hosts an L-shaped double living room, a separate dining room, a large kitchen, and a Guest room with en-suite bedroom and bath. Two paved patios lead from the dining and living rooms, and offer an ideal place for outdoor living. As one expects in Italy, the patio in front of the living room is equipped with comfortable couches and is perfect for enjoying the sunset while the other, accessed from the dining
room, contains large tables for al fresco dining.
On the next floor, you will find 6 Bedrooms and 5 Bathrooms, 4 of which are Twins which can be made as Kings, as well as the other two which are Kings. In addition there is a children’s room in the next floor up with two twins, not counted in total.
