So many of our clients have regularly asked us over recent years for villas by the sea in Italy so we are delighted to include Sdrucciolo once again - a rare find in a setting of exceptional beauty.
Situated above Cala Piccola on the Argentario coastline, Sdrucciolo enjoys far-reaching views across the sea to the islands of Giannutri and Giglio. There are very few villas in this area and all of them are completely private. Sdrucciolo is no exception with its maze of terraced areas, swimming pool and countless spots in which to sit and do nothing except gaze across the sea.
Outside eating areas are set amidst the beautifully manicured gardens which lead down paths to the large oval shaped salt water pool directly above the ocean below. This is the best spot to simply relax in the sun and sip a drink from the bar, equipped with fridge and a blind to provide shade from the midday heat. Outside the house itself is a long terrace with sliding doors leading into the sitting room with its beamed ceiling, wooden furniture and open fireplace. Indeed, it almost feels as if one is at sea! Steps lead up to the dining area and beyond to the well-equipped kitchen with granite worktops.
A great asset to Sdrucciolo is Signora Ivetta, a fantastic cook who will make your stay even more special and memorable.
Upstairs, the prettily furnished en suite bedrooms with more classic high quality wooden furniture, benefit from magical views across the sea. Below the terrace and the main house are steps to a further twin bedroom cut into the rocks with en suite shower room. It is hard to imagine ever leaving Sdrucciolo and its pool but should one wish to take a dip in the ocean then nearby is the private Cala Piccolo club where clients of Sdrucciolo can enjoy the bar, pool and beach. Highly recommended for adult groups requiring a very comfortable villa by the sea.
