Farm with excellent development prospects in a prestigious area in Southern Tuscany. This 8.5 hectare property offers panoramic views of the mediaeval fortified town of Capalbio (7 km) and the surrounding hills as well as the sea. The unspoilt beaches and dunes are under a 5 minute drive away or an easy cycle ride.
Formerly all arable land, an extensive olive grove has now been planted. The farm has its own well which provides enough water for all irrigation requirements.
There are two new buildings (91 sq.m and 134 sq.m). One is currently used as kitchen and shop selling our own jams, chutneys, pies, pizzas etc. and the other ready to be converted into 5 en-suite rooms to let. Work has also been initiated on a rural farmhouse (140 sq.m at ground level and a 120 sq.m basement) currently planned to include 3 en-suite bedrooms suitable for private letting and a 60 sq.m porch providing outside living space for the summer months. Final layout details can still be altered to allow future owners to make changes according to their requirements. It is also likely that a further 2 bedrooms can be added once the building has been finished. Plans for the house also include a swimming pool.
The Local Council intends to augment the tourism sector and plans to develop the property with the addition of a number of bungalows are awaiting approval.
Capalbio is already a well known quality tourist area. In the summer it offers a variety of cultural activities including a film festival and art displays in the historic castle. Other local attractions include WWF Oasis and visitor centre ( ), the Giardino dei Tarocchi ( ), the Etruscan Castle at Vulci ( ) or old town of Osa. Famous for its Butteri cowboys, the area also has a tradition of horse riding and pony trekking and a vast network of scenic paths.
The Maremma region is also reknowned for it’s local cuisine and wines, including the local Ansonica DOC, ideal for fish dishes, or Morellino di Scansano DOC.
Capalbio is on the main train line between Rome and Pisa offering easy access also to Florence. By car, Rome (120 km) is just over an hour away and Florence 2 hours. In under an hour’s drive are the winter skiing facilities of Monte Amiata (1700 mt), the Spa town of Saturnia with its curative thermal waters and many attractive hilltop towns and Etruscan historic sites.
