Buen Retiro

Just like Plinius, this house was created as a ‘buen retiro’ to escape the chaos of Rome. Located in the hills of Capalbio, 10 minutes from the beach, this is the place where the owners Alberto and Roberta find their peace in between their hectic life as film producers and running a farming company. 

The Space 

This is the place where you can relax from your hectic daily life and adapt to the slow life on the coast of Tuscany. Start your day with a nice morning swim, be it summer or winter, because next to the amazing 'infinity pool' (8x16 meter, depth 1.30-2.80 meter), which is hand made with local stone walls, there is also a heated swimming pool (4x11 meters) inside.

After your morning swim, you can prepare a healthy and local breakfast that comes from the organic vegetable garden. You can enjoy your breakfast on the terrace or in one of the other relaxing spaces created in the one-hectare garden.

Everything in the villa is well designed according to the local traditions of the house with large height volumes and beautiful morning and evening light entering the wide living area. The living room consists of beautiful sofas in soft natural linen. The gray 'Cemento di Luna' floor, a reminder of the original rural floor, fits perfectly with the wooden durmast floor next to it.

The kitchen consists of everything you need (grill, dishwasher, large fridge, etc.) and you can dine here for up to 14 guests while you have a view of the beautiful hills from every window.

Upstairs, connected by an iron staircase covered in resin, you'll find the second living room with a home cinema equipped with a 55' curved flat-screen TV.

The Villa welcomes its guests in bedrooms equipped with every comfort; three bedrooms are en-suite, and 2 bedrooms share the same bathroom. Each room has a panoramic view of the hills reminiscent of the Renaissance. All rooms are very bright thanks to a large number of windows and patio doors. All rooms are equipped with high-quality bed linen and towels.

The three upstairs rooms have high oak ceilings; one of these has an ensuite bathroom and a private terrace. The other two bedrooms share the same bathroom.

The two ground-floor bedrooms have access to outdoor areas and dedicated verandas, with comfortable sun loungers from which to enjoy the pleasant views of the surrounding relaxing hills and of the garden with its cork oaks, cypresses, holly oaks, olive trees, and perfumed herb bushes.


The Villa is located near the village of Capalbio, which is one of the most beautiful villages of the Tuscan Maremma, a hidden coast in the southern part of Tuscany. It is chic but discreet with stunning scenery. It is located 10 minutes from the beach on Europe's hidden coast, the Maremma. Close to the border with Lazio, with 1h50 you're in the centrum of Rome. In the neighborhood, you can find thermal baths (Vulci and Saturnia) and there are many wine tours available. Check out our Maremma Guide for more information!

Plinius loves

Location: 10 minutes from the beach, perfection!

The design of the outside walls with 150 small windows, hints at the old granaries. 

Pools: The amazing design of the large infinity pool and the fact that it is not heated! + The relaxing area around the pool with the most comfortable chaise longues is perfect for your afternoon nap. On cooler days there is a heated pool indoors. 

Organic vegetable garden: Paolo Peirone, a very known Italian landscape designer, chose our vegetable garden for his book ”Gli Orti Felici” ( “The Happy Italian vegetable garden")

Europe’s hidden coasts: Check out our Maremma Guide for more information! We also love the Amalfi coast and Capri, but unfortunately, so do all tourists. The Maremma coast beaches are much less crowded but equally beautiful. Discover the wild beaches and untouched fisherman villages.
