La Lepraia 12 is in the Tuscan Maremma, between the coast and the countryside, near the village of Castellina Marittima. The magnificent position boasts spectacular extensive views on the countryside and the Mediterranean Sea, up to the main Tuscan Islands Elba and Capraia, and in clear days up to Corsica. The estate is part of a natural Reserve called "Il Terriccio", offering a generous natural habitat to plants and wild vegetation.
It is perfect for families of friends looking to spend time together while retaining some privacy. Two of the three villas of the Lepraia estate will be available to those looking to rent this version. The third villa will be closed thus guests will be able to enjoy complete privacy when renting this version.
La Lepraia estate is a 18th century stone building that has been carefully restored to a high-standard in full respect of the Tuscan tradition. It benefits of a private garden and a private covered terrace, equipped for 'al fresco' meals. A special feature is the beautiful solarium and pool area, which includes a large infinity swimming pool (16x8 m) with shallow end, a built-in barbecue and a cabin with a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom and a changing room. La Lepraia is a unique estate that we are proud to include in our portfolio.
The property is equipped with all modern comforts and are tastefully furnished to a high standard with a pleasant combination of local antiques and some ethnic pieces. The two villas together sleep 12 people - 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms (5 of which are en-suite). One of the villas rented for this version has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms (3 of which en-suite). The second villa has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (both en-suite).
The owners, a prominent Italian family, fell in love with the beauty of this place and started an extensive and ambitious restoration project. The landscape work was carried on by the internationally renowned landscape architect, Paolo Pejone, who designed the five hectares’ garden using mainly autochthonous plants, thus perfectly blending it in the surrounding environment.
Despite being in a secluded location, it is only 15 km away from the nearest motorway exit and it is therefore an ideal base for exploring the main historical Tuscan cities for those who will feel to leave this oasis.
