Garavicchio

The Casa di Garavicchio is a hillside country retreat on a secluded family estate in Maremma, one of the wildest and most beautiful areas of southern Tuscany.

The house, a spacious converted stable from the 1930’s, blends into the rural landscape with extensive views of the medieval town of Capalbio and the Mediterranean Sea.

Surrounding the house is in a fragrant garden of lavender, pomegranate trees, jasmine and roses. An organic vegetable garden is just a few steps from the kitchen. In 2010 a magnificent infinity pool (6x12m) was added. Located on the family property is the famous Niki de Saint Phalle sculpture garden .

The beach is only six kilometers from the house (approx 10 min. by car). To reach the house one drives up a winding dirt road to the private driveway and parking area of the Casa di Garavicchio. The main house is to one side of a stone courtyard that is bordered by a shaded pomegranate orchard.

On the other side of it, just three or four steps from the main house, are two small guest houses connected to each other by a covered patio. Each one has an independent entrance and its own ensuite bathroom. All around the house are many covered
outdoor areas where one can sit and enjoy the views in all weather.

The kitchen – the heart of the house - opens onto a huge covered veranda, a lovely spot for relaxing or dining outdoors. Through the kitchen is a spacious living room with a fireplace and two large glass doors opening onto another patio with spectacular
views of the surrounding countryside.

The bedrooms and respective bathrooms are all located off the living room and each has a garden view. The house is elegantly decorated and very comfortable. The owner’s book and art collections add a personal and artistic feel.
Maremma is off the beaten tracks of globalized tourism. Its beauty is in its wild, pristine stretches of land and coastline - parco della maremma; in its immaculate medieval villages and etruscan sites. It is an area renowned for its good food and its warm hospitality
