Lentisk is a beautiful one bedroom house on the fashionable peninsula of the Monte Argentario. Surrounded by both olive trees and vineyards, Lentisk overlooks the sea, with unspoiled view of Mediterranean, Giglio Island, Monte Cristo, and at sunset, Corsica. The house has been recently restored by her owner, Camilla Grimaldi, and sits on a impressive wine and olive oil estate called Poderi di Capo d'Uomo, which is set in its own bay, dominated by a Spanish built 16th century tower (which is the logo of the wine estate). It is called Lentisk, after the many lentisk plants around the terrace.
Lentisk is a one bedroom property, though can sleep another couple on a sofa bed in the sitting room. The house benefits from a stunning terrace with an outdoor 'sitting room' where guests can dine on a table made from a large olive oil mill-stone, which can seat up to 12 people. The house also has a sitting room, fully fitted kitchen, bathroom, air-conditioning, fans, working fireplace for the winter, car parking and is in a secluded part of the estate, providing privacy (the house is approx 90m2, excluding the terrace). We have our own friendly and professional staff that manage the property, and if booked in advance, can provide other services such as cooking and shopping.
The house also has direct private access to the clear sea below (4 mins walk), with a stone platform that has a ladder allowing access to the sea.
