Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Castiglione della Pescaia - 'Il Peperoncino'

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 outdoor shower with view, sleeps 7+2 on request


This charming and comfortable villa is situated on 5 acres of olive groves surrounded by rolling Tuscan hills with breathtaking views. It lies in the unspoilt region of Maremma where tourism goes hand-in-hand with local traditions. It was rebuilt by the owners with love and care. The fenced garden is suitable for families with children. It has a well manicured garden and a beautiful loggia to watch the sunset. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and sleeps 7+2 upon request. The living room is airy and the kitchen is fully equipped. On the right side of the house is a pergola with a barbeque and an al fresco dining area with direct access to the kitchen. The pergola overlooks a 12 x 6 m landscaped private pool with a diving board. In various parts of the house there are al-fresco dining areas and different locations to relax depending on your mood. The property provides complete privacy. We recently finished the pool house with open bar to enjoy your long evenings by the pool under the Tuscan sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful vacation. We felt taken care of in this stunning part of Tuscany. Very helpful staff, comfort food in nearby restaurants at reasonable prices, vineyard tours which Rita helped organize, visiting nearby spectacular towns, beautiful beaches and of course coming back to a wonderful home and pool. This is what a perfect vacation should be. The house has every comfort and lacks nothing. Thank you!

Großes Grundstück supe Haus, super Pool

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus ist wie beschrieben, der Pool ist super und die Lage ist ruhig und lädt zu erholsamen Abenden ein. Wer möchte kann sich jedoch auch in den Urlaubertrubel stürzen und schöne Abende in Massa Maritima oder Castiglione oder oder oder verbringen :-).

Einfach den Empfehlungen von Rita folgen. Rita ist das unschätzbare Plus des Hauses, sie organisiert dezent im Hintergrund alles was das Herz begehrt. Von der Weinverkostung bis zum Angeltrip. Alles geht! An dieser Stelle vielen Dank und herzliche Grüße nach Italien? NY? Singapur? :-) Man weiß nie wo Rita ist :-) aber sie ist immer da. Jörg

Owner's Response: Dear Jörg. What can I say to an amazing review such as yours! You have been special guests and organising activities for you was a joy. I hope you will be back very soon. Best wishes to you and your family!

Fantastic family place in stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Peperoncino (Dutch family with 3 young kids). The house is great, but the garden and terraces are even better. The large swimming pool was favourite of the kids of course (shallow on one side where the youngest can stand and deep on the other side, so that diving skills could be practised from the board). The difficult dilemma was either to spend the day lazy at the pool, or go out to the wonderful beaches of Castiglione della Pescaia or go to historic cities like Siena, San Gimignano Massa Maritima or even Lucca (take the bike tour on the citywall!). We mixed these ingredients into a wonderful holiday. Every evening there is a philharmonic concert of all animals living in the hills nearby, from woodpeckers to pheasants and from wild boars to toads, supported by all crickets. Rita and Giuseppe have ensured that the house was in perfect order and gave good tips about restaurants, beaches etc. We can recommend Il Covento in Scarlino and of course the "house restaurant" Osteria del Mugnaio, 10 minutes driving from the house. All in all, we fully recommend this house. Surely you will highly regret the moment you have to leave, but you will do so with great memories! Enjoy!

Nach der herzlichen Begrüßung durch die Freundin unserer Gastgeberin Rita, Claudia, am gut zu findenden Treffpunkt in Grilli, wurden wir durch sie zu unserem Urlaubsdomizil auf einem riesigen und wunderschön angelegten Anwesen gelotst. Die Lage des Hauses ist herrlich, weit und breit nur Felder mit Olivenbäumen, Wein und mit dem Auto problemlos zu erreichen. Der Anblick des Grundstücks hat uns im ersten Moment nur staunen lassen. Die Bilder bei HomeAway sind bereits wunderschön, aber vor Ort werden alle Erwartungen übertroffen. Man muss es einfach selbst gesehen haben, um unsere Begeisterung für "Il Peperoncino" verstehen zu können. Die Lage der einzelnen Terrassen bietet aufgrund der einzigartigen Bepflanzung eine angenehme Abgeschiedenheit auch bei Benutzung durch mehrere Personen. Der große und sehr gepflegte Pool im schön dekorierten Aussenbereich wurde von uns fast jeden Tag genossen. Hierbei findet man in jedem Bereich der Villa liebevolle und künstlerische Details, die die Handschrift der Besitzerin tragen. Die Küche ist gut durchdacht (Gewürze, Öl, Essig, Tee, Salz, Zucker usw.), also erst mal schauen, was da ist und dann einkaufen gehen aber auch wieder auffüllen, ist ja klar und war für uns selbstverständlich! Der Grill im Außenbereich ist sehr groß und lädt zu ausgiebigen Grillabenden ein. Das Haus wurde uns in einem einwandfreien und sauberen Zustand übergeben. Man konnte nachts die Fenster ohne Bedenken auflassen, denn die angebrachten Fliegengitter sind ein weiteres durchdachtes Detail. Die Bäder mit Marmorwänden runden das Ganze ab. So viele haben mit ihren persönlichen Worten versucht, ihre Begeisterung für dieses paradiesische Fleckchen Erde auszudrücken, doch man muss es einfach selbst erlebt haben. Dies zu erwähnen ist uns ein Anliegen, denn diese Villa, die Herzlichkeit und Gastfreundschaft von Rita und Claudia haben uns nicht nur einen wunderschönen Urlaub bereitet, sondern waren für uns eine absolute Bereicherung! Barbara und Jürgen

Owner's Response: Dear Barbara and Juergen. Wow is not enough! Thank you! We built our house for our young family and sharing it with guests like you makes it worthwhile. Your words convey everything that 'Il Peperoncino' is all about. We are touched! Please come back soon...A presto!

A refreshing and different holiday

  • 5 of 5

We arrived from our different parts of the world and found ourselves isolated from mankind or so it seemed...! But once we found our bearings and had a chance to settle and explore, Il Peperoncino became this wonderful haven of tranquility and beautiful scents! From olive groves within the compound to grapevines in the neighbour's grounds to the fragrant jasmine bush at the patio, we were won over by the next morning. The network of friends and staff were more than accommodating and helped us feel cared for throughout our stay. The villa itself was charming and we took the opportunity to light the fireplace for a few nights. As our party included a couple of keen cooks, we made use of the BBQ pit which was as efficient as it was attractive. We appreciated Rita's recommendations for meals and she was right about the seafood -simply the freshest and most delectable! For all of us, it was our first time to Tuscany and I would have to say, we all left with a sense that this was a destination we could do again!

Owner's Response: We are all so happy to have met your expectations! Our hidden gem, 'Il Peperoncino', in this beautiful part Tuscany never ceases to amaze us either. It gives us immense joy to share it with guests who appreciate all that it has to offer. Looking forward to welcoming you again!

Gorgeous location and wonderful customer service

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful month at Il Pepperoncino! Rita and Claudia were very attentive to any questions and helpful with suggestions for the local area. The property is gorgeous, the highlight being the beautiful swimming pool and meticulous grounds, full of olive and fig trees, grapevines and an incredible view of the Tuscan hills. The small city of Castiglione della Pescaia is charming and fun to visit and the beaches nearby are sandy and beautiful. We also particularly loved Osteria del Mugnaio, in Grilli and just a 5 minute drive from the property - such delicious pizza! This property is perfect for anyone looking for a peaceful retreat and relaxing vacation.

We were looking for somewhere where we could relax and absorb the beauty

of southern Tuscany in a comfortable, peaceful and effortless way.

"Il Peperoncino" fits the bill perfectly!

Right from the warm and friendly greeting to the way the whole place is

set up, this is a delightful place to spend your vacation.The house has all the facilities you would expect, with high-quality fixtures and fittings throughout.

The pool is simply magnificent, set alongside the house and with stunning views across the valley to the hills opposite, with not a single other house to be seen.

The outside living area, with its pergola and little kitchen area and no less than

three different tables (for different times of the day?) is really where you spend most of your time away from the pool and is sensibly laid out to minimize work or effort - just what you need on holiday!

We had to make two calls to the owners, both of which were dealt with

within minutes - a service level which, if anything, made the whole

experience even more enjoyable. The house is set away from the road (can

hardly hear any traffic) and enclosed by a fence and electric gates so

very, quiet, secure and private.

The BBQ in the garden is an extra bonus too. Nearby is the village of Grilli which has an supermarket and no less than three restaurants. Castiglione della Pescaia is maybe 15 - 20 minutes away by car and is brilliant. Lots of little shops and restaurants and a good harbor, not to mention the sandy beaches beyond. Day trips to Rome and Pisa were magnificent!

All in all, one of the best houses / villas we have ever rented and I would certainly hope that we can go back again next year.

Thank you to Rita and her family for making our stay there so brilliant!!

The beach and the sea: The closest beach (sandy beach) is in Castiglione della Pescaia a 15-minute drive from the estate. The water is clean and usually warm enough to swim in from mid-May to October. The sea is generally not rough. Italian beach-life is usually organised via beach clubs, where you can rent a cabin, a parasol and sunbeds by the day or the week as well as have drinks and snacks at the bar of the stabilimento. This is very convenient if you have small children. Often you can just show up at the club without a reservation, but in the months of July/August we recommend making a reservation in advance (please request when booking). Those looking for empty beaches will find them at Castiglione della Pescaia as well - some short stretches at the Castiglione coast are free beaches.

Sightseeing in the region: The breathtaking towns of Pitigliano, Sovana, Sorano, Manciano and the Medieval hilltop village Capalbio to the south-east, Massa Marittima to the north-west, just to name a few. To the south-east at a distance of approx. 90 km are the hot springs at Saturnia, with the famous sulphurous waters and the elegant spa with its beauty treatments.

The Argentario: a peninsula 40 km south of Grosseto famous for the Mediterranean macchia and the jet-set holiday resorts Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole.

Horseback riding: a tradition in Maremma. 5 minutes by car, there is a riding stable with Maremman-bred horses.

Nature: In the National Park 'Uccellina' marked footpaths will lead you through incredibly beautiful pine woods to hidden creeks, past romantic ruins of fortified watch-towers and the abbey of San Rabano, built by monks who arrived from Rhodes in the 10th century. The coastline of this national park is worth a visit - a beach of fine sand stretches along the coast. If you are looking for endless free beaches - this is a paradise.

Wine and food: just by driving around and scouting out the area you will inevitably bump into small traditional restaurants serving delicious local foods and prestigious wine: fresh vegetables, tender salads, ripe tomatoes, wild boar and game, pecorino - the local sheep cheese - and of course the excellent red wine Morellino di Scansano, which is gaining considerable attention from experts. The closest restaurants are a minute away from the house.


Golf Club Toscana Il Pelagone: This golf club is one of the most beautiful and exclusive facilities in Italy. The year-round 18-hole golf course is created in the middle of vineyards and silver olive groves. Small lakes, waterfalls and the Mediterranean fauna and flora give the course its special charm.

18-hole course

Guests are welcome at all times.

Registration is required.

Club ID with entered handicap (36) is required.

Golf Club Punta Ala: There is a beautiful course with a breath-taking view of the sea. In addition to the stunning view, the course offers a lot of natural cliff locations and impressive trees from conifers, pines, cork and other types of oak, not including the many bushes, which create a special challenge for a lot of golfers.

18-hole Punta Ala course

Guests are welcome at all times.
