Villa Macario, Tuscany

Astride a turn in the hillside, known as A Capo, lay an olive oil farm with exceptional views and the ruins of two buildings.

Abandoned, overgrown, collapsed.

Until recently...

​Since 2002, we have
 gradually returned some 1000 olive trees to production and authentically restored Villa Macario, one of the two buildings: 
the result meets all the requirements of today's market.


The ruins of the other building, La Villa Padronale (screened from Villa Macario by olive trees and shrubs, and internally floodlit at night), evoke the history of this exceptional site.

We welcome guests all year round, for out-of-summer-season cultural tours as much as for family sumer holidays or plain romantic hedonism. The villa is available on a self-catering basis, through to a full villa hotel service.

The key features of this exceptional property are:

- complete privacy

- rustic peace and quiet: hear the birdsong!

- absolutely stunning panoramic views

- modern comforts & facilities in a historic setting

- sleeps 8 luxuriously, plus up to 4 more in 2 spartan bunk rooms

- concierge & maid service​; in-villa local home cooking, cooking classes etc

- wi-fi, air-con, satellite TV, solar-powered under-floor heating

- 6x12m infinity pool

Finally, we include this to show one of the two spartan, but perfectly comfortable, bunk rooms. Best for short term overflow guests, kids or staff. (The wine store was temporary at the time of this photo and has been removed.)
