This lovely Follonica villa apartment is surrounded by an olive grove of two thousand trees and comes with an absolutely fantastic panoramic view of the Gulf of Follonica coast. It is without a doubt one of the more special apartment accommodation options in this part of Maremma and one of my top recommendations for places to stay in Follonica Tuscany.
The stone and brick villa is a new build in traditional Tuscan style. The spacious vacation apartment accommodation - 100 metres square - is on the ground floor (the owners live on the top floor). The apartment comprises of a huge living room with french glazed doors in its arches that open onto a large garden, as well as a shady under the arches terrace with ample space for a large wooden table, chairs and sun loungers. Two bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchen.
Walk across the garden and lawn and the whole of the coast of the Golfo di Follonica and the Tuscan archipelago is laid out before you. Turn around and the dark green wooded hills of the nature reserve of the Bandite di Scarlino and the medieval castled town of Scarlino as well as the Tuscan hill town of Gavorrano beckon you to visit in the distance.
Situated on the top of a hill (see the video for an aerial view of the villa and its panoramic view of the coast) its lands border those of the nature park of Montioni from which Princess Elisa Bonaparte once ruled Tuscany and where today you explore on foot the old alum mines, go horse-riding, and take some wonderful photos of families of wild boar.
The Follonica villa apartment living room
And all this is only a couple of minutes distance in the car from the supermarkets, shops and beaches of Follonica and Pratoranieri (1.5 km to 2 km) as well as the beaches of Torre Mozza, Carbonifera, Mortelliccio and Perelli within the coastal nature park of the Parco della Sterpaia. Perfect beaches for long lazy beach walks or line fishing.
The double bedroom has a modern wrought-iron four poster bed and a large wardrobe.
The apartment can also sleep two in bunk beds in a small second bedroom and two in a sofa bed in the living room.
The bathroom has a large walk in shower and two wash basins.
The kitchen is large, equipped with modern stainless steel appliances, and has a central wooden table for when you don't fancy eating outdoors.
The also apartment comes with a washing machine, dishwasher, satellite TV, clothes horse, iron and ironing board.
A quiet and peaceful secluded spot out of the hustle and bustle of Follonica itself, but still only a few minutes drive away, this apartment is ideal for a couple on a romantic get away or a family who value some peace and quiet. Definitely somewhere special to stay in Follonica as opposed to the many run of the mill basic holiday apartments in town.
You can also taste the villas own organic extra virgin olive oil while you are there, together with other locally produced Tuscan produce.
The only drawbacks are that you will need a car and there isn't as yet a swimming pool. But, if you have already spent all day on the beach, you probably won't want one.
