The Torre di Talamone in the past was a Spanish watchtower against the invasions of the Saracen pirates.
As the centuries have passed and the Torre has been restored, it has become a special place to spend your holidays. The location, as is for all towers on the sea, is absolutely spectacular. The tower rises above the Gulf of Talamone, the Tuscan coast and the Park of Maremma and on clear days, usual in this part of Tuscany, the view stretches for kilometers. Behind the tower lies the Maremma, rich in woods and scattered with numerous villages of Etruscan origin, the traces of which still remain today. The charm of this place is such that in the past, part of a James Bond movie was filmed here. The tower is part of a large estate that also includes another smaller structure, with which you share the access to the sea with steps carved into the rock and a sunbathing platform. At the foot of the Tower, facing the sea, there are two terraces: on one you will find the swimming pool (6x4,1.40 m deep) (01/06-30/09 open from 08:00 am to 8:00 pm) and surrounded by a wooden deck, while the other terrace, which is nicely furnished with sofas and chairs, offers a splendid view that reaches its best at sunset. This accommodation invites idleness and to finish the day you can go to the picturesque village of Talamone, which you have had in front of you all day, to enjoy the delicious Maremma cuisine or fish dishes. Wi-Fi Internet connection and 20 hours of maid service (excluding cleaning of the kitchen) are included in the price (only for weekly rentals). Services on request and to be paid for on location: extra hours of maid service, babysitter, a chef, cooking classes.
