This 320sqm villa at Ronchi, in Tuscany's exclusive Versilia coastal region, 700 metres from the beach, was built by a pupil of the cult architect Frank Lloyd Wright and typifies the ethos of the Master's 'organic architecture' philosophy. Still owned by the notable Tuscan family who commissioned it in the 60s, the villa is located between the world-famous marble town of Carrara and the exclusive resort of Forte dei Marmi. Versilia, protected by the majestic Apuan Alps (sheer mountains, thrilling ascents, incomparable panoramas) and graced by the crystal waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea (swimming, snorkelling, sailing, surfing, windsurfing and fishing), offers breathtaking shorelines and beaches, bustling quays and marinas and boulevards blooming with oleander and palm trees flanked by elegant stores and trattorias. A plethora of tennis courts, bike routes, gyms, skating rinks, riding stables and eighteen and nine-hole golf courses completes the extensive roster of local activities. Within easy reach of such historical gems as Florence, Siena, Pisa and Lucca, the beaches, mountains and spectacular countryside of the Versilia offers a wealth of sightseeing, sporting and recreational diversity. The Tyrrhenian Sea, its marinas, harbours and golden strands indulge sun worshippers, water-sports and sailing enthusiasts, whilst the breathtaking Apuan Alps provide a haven for climbers, cyclists, walkers and those simply courting seclusion and relaxation. Visitors embracing culture will wallow in Versilia's wealth of churches, cathedrals, palaces, castles, museums, galleries, ancient settlements, theatres and festivals. And for the gourmet, wine lover and those with an insatiable desire to discover the 'tastes' of Italy, leave your guilt at home and indulge and savour the myriad flavours of Tuscany.
