Villa La Piastraia - Suvereto near the seaside in TuscanyVilla La Piastraia is situated in Maremma Tuscany, about 700 m from the medieval village Suvereto and about 20 minutes from the sea of the Etruscan Riviera. Already approaching Suvereto, one can see above the village, on a hill covered with olive trees and cypresses, an elegant, terracotta-coloured villa: this is  Villa La Piastraia, dating back to the 18th century and taking the name from the land on which it is located. Today, just after the restructuring works it has turned into an elegant villa, offering space for 5 up to 6 people. It has been created a very refined and cosy ambience, ideal for those longing for tranquillity, relax and comfort.

Nei giorni molto limpidi si può vedere perfino l'Isola di Monte Cristo.
In the garden, there are typical Mediterranean plants such as cypresses, olive trees, pine trees, lemon trees, palms as well as cactusses of different kind and size that thanks to the position towards the sea, they can enjoy whole year round many hours of sun and of a particular microclimate. In the garden, there are several angles, thus as the "belvedere" with a bank, from where one can enjoy unforgettable sunsets over the sea. In front of the house, a terrace with table and chairs for outside eating and a barbecue.

History

Villa La Piastraia - document found at The house is embedded between olive groves of the working farm "Pazzagli Orlando" that produces one of the best extravirgin olive oils of the area.
The Pazzagli Orlando farm started already centuries ago to produce together with the activity cereal production, mainly olive oil. This is also certified by antique documents, dating back to the 18th century, that were found at the house of the Pazzagli family.
Initially, the family was living in the small village Belvedere, only a few kilometres from Suvereto away.
At the end of the 19th century, they purchased the house in the historic centre of Suvereto, where even today are living Orlando and his wife Patrizia. Orlando's granfather purchased in the course of the years lots of land and he was paying already during these times great attention to innovation.

Villa La Piastraia - View over the villa before the restorationIn fact, they had already several modern machines, trying always to improve quality and with this also professionalism.
Villa La Piastraia is surrounded by most of the farm olive groves.
Until the restoration works, there has never ever been a great intervention. Orlando and Patrizia have chosen with great care mainly natural materials, from the colours of the front and inside that have been prepared with organic substances, exactly as the were prepared centuries ago.
Therefore, the colour of the façade changes with the weather: during wet and rainy days, it becomes a very intense dark terracotta colour, whereas on dry and sunny days it becomes a very soft, earthy tone.

Villa La Piastraia - living roomFor the inside the two chose also natural materials such as stone and marble for the pavements in the living area and for the bathrooms that have been skilfully decorated with mosaics by an artist. For the sleeping area and for the wooden staircase that is connecting the ground floor with the two upper floors was chosen the warm chestnut wood. The wood was not treated with chemicals and is therefore exhaling a pleasant parfume.
The nearness of only 700 m to the next village and of only 20 minutes to the sea, makes it possible to enjoy a pleasant stay between the beauty of the Tuscan countryside and the sea...
