Elegant apartment within the walls of a National M

1 of 37
Castle -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Porto Ercole, Monte Argentario, Province of Grosseto, Tuscany
This is a rare opportunity to stay in an elegant apartment within the walls of a pristine Tuscan National Heritage monument. La Rocca Spagnola, 1557, was built during the Spanish occupation of Tuscany and sits magnificently over the picturesque Marina of Porto Ercole. La Rocca is the perfect place for a quiet and peaceful retreat.

The apartment, La Santa Barbara features a large vaulted room broken diagonally by a stunningly designed (by the owner) mezzanine, master built in a Dougles Fur robust timber frame. The large ground floor reception living space (38 mq) is elegantly furnished with period pieces, modern leather couches, and a sturdy travertine framed fire place. Comfortable accommodation for four with one twin room and one super king size bed (on mezzanine) as well as fully equipped kitchen and bathroom.

Additional amenities & feature info
La Rocca is beautifully maintained with fresh herbs growing (to be picked and enjoyed!) and stupendous views to be savoured.
The fortress sits within easy walking distance to a rocky beach and the working Marina of Porto Ercole. A number of restaurants offer the opportunity to sample Tuscan cooking (and wine!) as well as numerous bars (cappuccino etc.!) as well as fish-markets, boutiques and grocery shops
Wonderful off-season too with beautiful, wild walks and ideally situated to explore the Tuscan Maremma and archipelago as well as easy access to Rome, Saturnia, Pisa, Florence etc.
Come home to a log fire and glass of rich, red, Tuscan wine!
