Charming historic villa overlooking the sea of Salivoli with its own wharf.
Built in 1926 as a family bastion over the foundation of an old mill and in a dominant position on the small promontory of the Gulf of Salivoli.
The materials used for both the exteriors and the interiors (rock, sandstone, marble, inlaid wood) give great strength to the building, and witness the great care in building this villa.
The panoramic garden that surrounds the Villa was also designed with great care, and organized in a terraced structure that follows - and exalts at the same time - the sloping of the ground; the massive presence of the tuff, left exposed, gives an ancient air , so to speak " Etruscan ", to some corners of the garden .
The entrance is bordered by two green spaces; one is a little pine forest, planted with centuries-old maritime pine and laurel bushes, and the other hosts a pergola and a citrus grove .
The vegetation of the garden is typically Mediterranean : bougainvilleas, tamarisk trees, olive trees , palm trees , prickly pears , agaves , myrtle and mastic .
The swimming pool was created by the current owners taking advantage of a pre-existing pool of water, and enjoys a superb view of the Tuscan Archipelago and the Corse.
In the past, this area of the garden was used as a small amphitheatre , where they set up outdoor musical and theatrical performances .
The internal structure of the villa is spread over three floors, plus a loft area and a large attic .
When setting the original, the lowest floor, just few meters from the shore of the sea, was intended to accommodation for guests and domestic staff;
the ground floor, enhanced by coffered or vaulted ceilings and open to the garden, offered plenty of lunches and banquet facilities;
the first floor, connected by a wooden staircase and marble, housed bedrooms and some private rooms.
The great versatility of the plan, however, enabled the new owners to divide the house into two separate apartments , while preserving the full harmony and organic unity of the whole, and without betraying or distorting the original vocation of this aristocratic abode.
