N° 010 | Perched on a hilltop

users 8 bed 4 bath 3

This House is the perfect vacation home. Perched on a hilltop with a 360-degree view of surrounding vineyards, olive groves, and the Tyrrhenian Sea, cooled by a constant sea breeze, this stunning house boasts a pool and a beautifully terraced landscape.

The house was designed by the very talented architects Andrea and Luca Ponsi, by Studio Ponsi. for their own personal use. After being featured in a number of Architectural magazines and books, there was so much interest in the house that Andrea and Luca decided to open it up for holiday rental. In this way, this stunning and beautiful house can now be enjoyed by many. 

The Space

The house is both inspired by and intimately connected to this landscape. Built on three levels, its horizontal lines reflect the natural surroundings. The lower, walk-in level features two bedrooms and utility rooms, while the exterior tufa-stone façade makes use of volcanic rock, a centuries-old regional building tradition. On the main level the open-plan living, dining, and kitchen areas open onto a spacious terrace and a beautifully landscaped pool.
The white stucco interior walls are inspired by typical Mediterranean architecture. An outdoor steel staircase leads to an upper terrace and the master bedroom, which is also accessible from an indoor staircase. The overall design of the house, along with the external staircases, the interior wood paneling, and unique brass and copper details lend an appropriate nautical feel to the home. You can even see the sea out in the distance: the house offers panoramic views over the hills all the way to the Tyrrhenian Sea and its islands.

The house boasts a fully-equipped kitchen and a charcoal barbecue for cooking meals, as well as a fireplace with wood provided. There’s a laundry with a washing machine and dryer, as well as internet available throughout the property.

Plinius Loves

The architecture: it is a truly stunning design. The house looks like it's floating in the Tuscan landscape. Andrea and Luca Ponsi from Studio Ponsi have created a unique sanctuary. 

Location: Tucked away in the hills, close to two untouched medieval villages of Magliano in Toscana and Pereta. It is breathtakingly beautiful, with an uninterrupted view of vineyards, olive groves, and rows of cypresses, and with the sea, Monte Argentario, and Isola del Giglio in the distance.

Pool Design: The pool is divided into specific areas. The “beach” is particularly suitable for children, with only a few centimeters of water; the central section is 1.4 meters deep, and the deepest part lets you swim 15-meter lengths.

Outdoor areas: The terraces, patios, and loggias on three levels provide further vantage points from which to enjoy the beauty of the surroundings as they evolve with the seasons.
