High ceilings with old beams living room with fireplace, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, nice and perfectly working live in kitchen, balcony you can eat out, enjoyn the bright sun or the fresh night, white chalk walls, natural wooden floors painted with organic orange transparent oil for protection, all the electric implants are organized in a way you do not suffer from armfuls magnetic fields. Child safe and built to have my four years baby the full freedom to play on a worm and safe floor. It is virtually located on the side hill leading to the ancien row of walls from the middle age town facing our entrance from the north side. from our windows we see the mediterraneum sea facing the south! The house is not very big but really well built and the disposition of the rooms is great. It makes the house look bigger when is very easy to clean and live in... In the vicinity there are 3 bars, 10 restaurants, 1 pizzeria whit a professional cocktail bar. Capalbio is renown for her restaurant specialties and for the wild boar meat and sausages. Row and barely cooked meat is the best I ever tried, it melts in your mouth and is very healthy due to the cattle original and traditional upraise, "free-range" in the thicket. It takes our Butteri hard work in the thick vegetation in order to get the young cows out of the "macchia". Excellent is the local fish and Il Frantoio Bar, Restaurant, Library and Boutique is my favorite and has a garden that's a corner of paradise! Talking about Boutiques, I run, at 50 steps from this listing, my beloved shop: Studio Adhoc, concept store and laboratory where I silkprint t-shirts and bandannas and sell from Frye Boots to Melissa Plastic Dream Shoes, sailor items as Armor-Lux striped classic Mariniere to Swedish Clogs, woden toys and Maremma's Tolfa Bags, the ones used by the incredibly stylish Butteri, our typical Cowboys. In the vicinity, at circa 10km. from my property there is "Il Giardino dei Tarocchi" the Tarot Garden, scolpture garden designed and realized in 20 years by Nicky de Saint Phalle, one of the last surrealists left, she directed her very young assistants choosing them between the youn Capalbio teenager in order to teach them how to produce and fix the mosaic parts, in order to build it and to resore it year after year and after she wouldn't have been here anymore... really surprising, joyful and enlightening! . In Capalbio we suggest to arrive with your own car or to rent one in Rome or in Grosseto, to have the liberty to wander in this incredible spaghetti movie landscape and territory, but there is a 4 times a day bus too, for the Capalbio Scalo Train Station, the beach called Macchiatonda and Orbetello center and train station. Perfect for vacations or to retreat in peace and harmony, getting from an enriching nature contemplation, guided on demand by the WWF first born italian park (the ethologist Konrad Lorenz was one of the always present "afficionados", to cool "Robinson Crusoe's" empty beaches recharging vacation. In Capalbio wild beauty is everywhere! We love our little house and love to be there. Now we are in USA for study matters and we would like you to experience this great little treasure... :)

The apartment is in a fabulous location right alongside the walls of the beautiful town of Capalbio. The apartment itself is converted to a modern standard but still retains the character of it's age. There are great views of the Tuscan valley right over to the sea. There is no parking at the apartment but there seemed to a fair amount of street parking further down the road. Francesca was a very amenable host and available if we needed any help. Note there is no airconditioning but I felt comfortable leaving the bedroom window open as it had a flyscreen and was high up.
Sono stati 3 giorni bellissimi. La casa è stupenda, nel pieno centro di Capalbio, circondata da ristoranti e trattorie, e il mare è a solo un quarto d'ora di macchina.
Francesca è un'ospite estremamente gentile e disponibile ed è la proprietaria di un negozietto delizioso a pochi metri dalla casa.
