Santa Trice is a noble villa, imposing and strong like the stone of which it was built, dominating the hills and watching over the sea of the Etruscan Coast, in front of Elba Island. It is a villa dating back to the beginning of the 20th century, created by Counts and inhabited by noble families, it is a house “full” of history, where the time seems to stand still: the fascination of Tuscany soaks the walls of the estate, standing on a hill, covered in part with the woods of the Montioni Natural Reserve and of at least 9 hectares olive groves, of which is obtained an excellent extra virgin Tuscan olive.
Tenuta Santa Trice is the ideal place for those who would like to pass their holiday in one of the most beautiful places in Tuscany, enjoying elegance, comfort and relax.
DESIGN IN THE RESPECT OF TRADITION
The restoration of the estate was just completed and Santa Trice is ready to give hospitality to all those guests who appreciate silence, nature, tradition and good life. During the restoration works it was tried to preserve the nature of this beautiful villa with spacious and bright rooms with high ceilings.
There are 8 apartments and 3 double rooms available, stylishly and elegantly furnished: valuable antique furniture is mixed up with modern, functional kitchens and pieces of furniture. The elegant and precious serena sandstone, the marble washing trough and the fireplaces characterize the apartments on the upper floors and are in contrast with the romantic atmosphere and the warmth of the antique terracotta floors and the vaulted ceilings of the rooms on the ground floor. Because of its beauty and uniqueness, Santa Trice is certainly the ideal place to pass an unforgettable holiday and to live an authentic experience in Tuscany!
ROOMS AND APARTMENTS
The estate is composed of 2 double rooms and 1 suite, ideal for couples, looking for privacy and relaxation and of 8 apartments for 2 up to 5 guests, with kitchen and living area, suitable for families with children or groups of friends, who need lots of space and all the services to pass a comfortable and relaxing holiday. The villa disposes of a huge hall with reading room and on the first floor of a private, consecrated chapel for religious ceremonies.
On the ground floor is situated a kitchen for common use with modern and professional stainless steel furniture, right next to the antique stone oven typical for the Tuscan country houses. The breakfast room was created inside of the antique laundry room and the buffet will be prepared on the antique stone washing troughs. The villa is surrounded by a huge garden full of scents and typical essences of the Mediterranean macchia wood and rich coloured rose-bushes on the borders of the grass and driveways.
BETWEEN THE HILLS AND THE SEA…SANTA TRICE
The estate is situated in the municipality of Piombino, on the border between the provinces of Livorno and Grosseto, exactly where the Etruscan Coast merges into Maremma Tuscany.
Driving over a short stretch of gravel road, accompanied by the uninterested gaze of the chianina cattle breeds, one reaches the top of the hill, from where it is possible to enjoy a splendid view over the sea of the Gulf of Follonica, lying only a few minutes away. Santa Trice is certainly the ideal point of departure to discover the beauties of this angle in Tuscany, so rich of art and culture.
