Sea views to take your breath away.
Imagine waking up each morning, pulling back the shutters and being greeted by a view of the sea. It doesn’t have to be a mere dream. From a bijou apartment on the seafront to a rustic hillside farmhouse, we’ve selected five gorgeous properties with breath-taking views to whet your appetite.
GTP – Villa Marina
A sun-kissed garden is the setting of a swimming pool with views that extend from sea to the verdant hills of Versilia. The terrace is the perfect spot for an alfresco lunch or aperitivo while your gaze takes in the islands of the Tuscan archipelago and Gulf of Poets. And, if that weren’t enough, you can produce a fruity yellow oil from olives picked from your very own grove. Truly a home where you can experience every nuance of the beautiful palette created by the Tuscan seasons.
GTP – Villa Anna
Perched on the first hill above the picturesque town of Pietrasanta is a typical Tuscan home with a panoramic view that takes in the Apuan-Versilia coastline with tantalising glimpses of the Apuan Alps and hills behind Pietrasanta and neighbouring Camaiore, extending to the Gulf of Poets. Inside is a charming rustic atmosphere with exposed beams, red bricks, terracotta floors fusing with a light contemporary touch to create a true haven for escaping the fast pace of the world outside.
GTP – Villa Cecilia
Location, location, location. Is there a more important factor when it comes to determining the value of a property? This home overlooking the renowned beach lidos of Forte dei Marmi combines priceless sea views without having to sacrifice access to the fantastic boutiques and cafés of the elegant town centre. Inside it boasts features such as a lift, billiard room and a master suite with – what else – stunning views of the sparkling Tyrrhenian Sea.
GTP – Villa Andrea
Nestled in the countryside of Castagneto Carducci and a stone’s throw away from the famous Avenue of Cypresses in Bolgheri, home to world-renowned wines such as Ornellaia, Sassicaia and Masseto, is an extraordinary property. Encircled by plants and trees with enchanting views of the sea, this ancient villa owned by local nobility comes with plenty of history. Built upon the remains of a residence dating back to Roman times it could be straight from a film set with its golden sunsets, flocks of swallows circling above and elegant interiors harking back to another era.
GTP – Villa Cristina
A micro-climate which brings mild weather even in the heart of winter. Rays of sun casting their warm soft light on the old stone walls in the early dawn and lingering sunset moments. The incredible view of the Ligurian Riviera serving a movable, continuous feast for your eyes. This extraordinary property has been skilfully renovated under designs drawn up by a renowned architect, retaining a host of original features, such as gables, columns and cornices to create a home oozing soul and character in an old fishing village which epitomises the word “picturesque”.
