Salamandra – Porto Rotondo – Sardegna- Italy

4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, sleep8
Designed by a famous architect, together with a celebrated landscape gardener who created the grounds, this beautiful villa is situated in Porto Rotondo, at the heart of the Costa Smeralda. Porto Rotondo harbour is within walking distance and the Yacht Club is just 500 metres away. Sandy beaches can be reached without needing to use the car; the privileged residents of Porto Rotondo have at their disposal a convenient bus service to take them directly to the beaches. The villa is entered from the parking area by a path adorned with various flowers and plants and interrupted by a series of large rocks, which creates a unique and eye-catching view. The swimming pool, built on the terrace of the most scenic side of the house, looks out over the bay and boasts a hydro-massage system. The porch, with its picturesque sea view, is especially delightful. It is comfortably furnished and has direct access to the living room. In addition, there is an outdoor kitchen area with barbeque and brick oven, set amongst the well-maintained landscaped gardens that slope gently away from the swimming pool. Due to the numerous steps and the situation of the pool, we do not feel that this house is suitable for children under 4 or anyone with walking difficulties.

It is pleasantly shaded by lush oak, almond and plum trees and has its own large private swimming pool. The ground floor, which was originally the stable, has seven large windows that flood the spacious living room with light. On three sides of the room are comfy benches with cushions and the rest of the space remains open with comfortable sofas for relaxing around the big fireplace. There is one bedroom with bathroom en suite on this floor.

The first floor connects with the ground floor by an outside staircase, typical of Tuscan farmhouses. An upstairs living room looks out over the tree tops and light pours in from the skylight. The adjoining kitchen/dining room has a waist high travertine covered fireplace, which makes grilling a breeze. Two bedrooms with bathroom en suites are followed by two more bedrooms, which share a bathroom. A smaller building next to the main house, called a dépendance, has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, another large living room, an open kitchen and large exposed beams running the length of the house.

The magnificent garden of honeysuckle, lavender, sage, rosemary and hydrangea was designed by the famous English garden designer Peter Curzon.

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.
