This has to be one of the most sophisticated private homes available to rent on the Tuscan Coast. The views of the sea and coastline from Ciclopica are just stunning. This beautiful property sits directly above the port of Cala Galera looking down at the luxury yachts with the famous white beach of La Feniglia unfolding in front of you with two charming towns, Orbetello and Porto Ercole below you, offering a large selection of shops, bars and restaurants.
The old farmhouse has been recently restored and converted into a very comfortable private home that is used throughout the year by its international owners. There is a choice of outdoor shaded areas, one by the pool, and another for dining with a large BBQ and outdoor kitchen on the lower ground level and a third just outside the kitchen with a dining table overlooking the swimming pool and coastline.
There is guest house with a fantastic living space with a billiard table, a TV area and for those that have the talent, a number of musical instruments with a pro sound system. There is also a small gym and a sauna. The main house has a very well equipped and modern kitchen, all the bedrooms, less one have en suite bathrooms and air conditioning is fitted in the rooms where needed.
The stone terraced grounds are kept to the same high standard. They are fenced and gated for privacy with lawns, a working vineyard as vegetable plot and a beautiful row of cypress trees, illuminated at night. The paved road up to Ciclopica winds up the hill and takes about 15 mins to reach the gates leading into the private grounds. There is a fantastic team that look after the property and grounds and our concierge team can arrange wonderful dinners, lunches and breakfast as events for special occasions. For larger numbers we can add a nearby property sleeping 6, for further details please speak to our sales team.

Further south you have Tuscania and Tarquinia, two Etruscan Cities and with the new “superstrada” Siena is within easy reach. You can fly into Pisa or Rome airports both within a 2 hour drive.
