La Calanque Rouge – Théoulle-sur-Mer – France

View from the Sea

3 Bedrooms with Bathrooms En Suite (Sleeps 6)

a Calanque Rouge is situated on the outskirts of the small fishing village of Théoule sur Mer and is just a short 10 minute drive to the center of Cannes. Built on top of a cliff, the house was recently renovated to a very high standard. Its design makes the most of the spectacular views with large windows throughout and large south facing terraces, one of which has a plunge pool with Jacuzzi spa and current controls. All rooms look over the pretty Mediterranean garden and the sea beyond. Making this delightful property even more special are the steps from the garden that lead directly to a secluded and very private beach which is only accessible by land from this house. One can also moor one’s boat within the shelter of the cove. For those who want to be close to the heart of the Cote d`Azur, while enjoying the benefits of a quiet beach front property with wonderful sea views, La Calanque Rouge is a great house in an ideal location.

Santa Maria – Val d’Orcia – Tuscany -Italy

4 Bedrooms and 3 Bathrooms (Sleeps 7)

Nestled in among lush wooded hills, Santa Maria offers a sweeping view of the lovely Orcia Valley. Even though it is on the outskirts of the La Foce property, it sits on its own 15 acres of woodlands and beautifully terraced gardens designed by the famous English landscape architect, Peter Curzon. On one of the terraces lies the 16’ x 30’ swimming pool and below that is a parking lot, not visible from the house. Completely restored in 1999 the house is decorated with the original colors of Sienese farmhouses, pale yellow, pink and blue. A few fine antiques are mixed in with the simple, attractive local furnishings and the kitchen and bathrooms are equipped with every modern convenience.

The large country kitchen is an ideal place for dining, but on warm days to eat in the loggia with its barbecue and traditional wood-burning pizza oven. Better yet, if you prefer to dine under the vine covered pergola, which runs long the front of the house, you’ll have a stunning view of the Orcia valley.
