A dirt path leads through maritime pines and wildflowers to a simple beach house. The air is scented with wild herbs and, steps away, the beach. This remote stretch of white sand is only reachable on foot, so you’ll rarely see another soul – a rarity in trendy Maremma.
Interiors are understated – white washed walls adorned with abstract paintings by Alice’s mother. The master bedroom perches above the rest of the house, catching those breathtaking views. In the kitchen – cool marble and everything you need to prepare a feast, gather everyone round the table under the vine covered pergola.
A truly peaceful place for outdoor living – doze on the porch, set up camp on the beach or cycle to Castiglione for an aperitivo. Nearby, there’s kite surfing, horseback riding, bike trails and the Etruscan village at Populonia; though soon, you’ll be longing to return for sunset swims and long evenings under a black sky bright with stars.
