The space

This stunning stylish Villa with large garden and pool is set at few min by the sandy beach of Ansedonia in Capalbio seems to be coming out from a magazine or fairy tales book, Southern Tuscany. A strategic position in the quiet area in the countryside surrounded by historic sites and castles, and roman sites, olive trees, wine yards, green fields and hills.
The Villa belonged to Baron Gerardo Zampaglione (Rome, (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)), a career diplomat and author, who served as Italian Consul general in Calcutta, India, and Ambassador to Kuwait, Uae, Qatar, Pakistan, Switzerland, and Indonesia. An art collector and a passionate traveler, Ambassador Z. during his Foreign postings collected many old paintings and art pieces that our guest can admire and use in the Villa. His family, now living abroad, continues to keep in excellent condition with passion and sober taste this extraordinary site.
The villa is finely fitted and fully equipped to enjoy a first class stay in Tuscany. It was completely renovated in 2014 in a “globalist-chic style”, by the mix of precious antique pieces, functional modern furniture, and the colors of the Tuscany tradition.
It is perfect to taste the Genuine Tuscany taste: the crystal clear sea, the green hill and the wine yards, the historic lovely towns.
The main gate access (automatic) is through a private road with the typical cypresses along it that takes to the private shadowed parking available.
The villa has 2 completely independent units (the Large and Smart unit) with its own independent garden and privacy.

The Large unit with private garden and parking, private pool access (8 guests, 4 bathroom)
Our guests favorite area is the living room connected to a garden’s lounge area by a large door-window where you can sipping a bottle of good local wine admiring the nature. Here, most of the year the daytime is warm and is lovely to have lunch outside or read a book at the sunlight also in autumn or winter time. The house is very bright and charmy. Fresh in summer thanks to the solid large walls made by local stones (in addition is provided of air conditioning) and Warm in winter with new windows and an independent heating system.
Garden is equipped with table, seats and lounge area. In addition there is a lovely pool in the larger area free of trees of the garden equipped with sunbeds. This is in common with another villa in the property used rarely from the owners, a sober international discrete family, that does not live in Tuscany.
On the ground floor there is a large living room, kitchen and bathroom. The living room include a lounge, 2 dining area, a wine corner and all the kitchen amenities with a lounge and dinging area and wine corner. The access to the night area is by a flight of snail stairs.
On the upper floor there are four double bedroom and tree bathroom. The upper floor is fascinating as well with wood made roof and the enchanting view over the Tuscany country side and the property’s gardens- Two of the tree bathroom are in-suite with bath and very large. One of the four bedroom is in a fascinating reading room with a huge library that offers a special environment. Another bedroom has a charm fireplace is it that in winter times make it very particular with special colors. In reality every corner and room of this house has a strong character.
The Large Unit has two private shadowed parking spaces.

General information
This villa is tailored to accomodate international travelers and businessmen. Perfect for family holidays, Italy explorations or just for a relaxing period away from chaos.
“Ambassador Z” Capalbio is the best choice for business or tourism travelers to Tuscany, or as a hub to visit Italy. The coast of Capalbio stretches over 12 kilometers and is characterized by long sandy beaches, shallow water and crystal clear water, bordered by the 'Macchia Mediterranea' vegetation. There are few entrance points to the beaches but they are easy to reach by car from the Aurelia road (SS1) and you'll find both free beach areas as well as areas with sun chairs, umbrellas and more. The surroundings are just as charming. Capalbio is also renowned for the beautiful Garden of Tarot Cards, located just a few kilometers from the ancient center. The garden is famous for the large sculptures created by the French artist Niki de Sante Phalle depicting the 22 Major Arcanes of the tarot cards.
Please consider that mobiles phones rarely has signal inside of around the Villa. They use to work at approx. 200mt by the house.

The house is nice and spacious with the garden being the nicest part. However, the photos of the garden do not exactly correspond to the real set up. In fact, all those sun-beds and sun-lounges are not there. There were only two sun-beds and a broken garden parasol. While the house was very clean, the hosts had failed to resolve an ant infestation and get rid of fly nests in the smaller unit. This meant that there were severe issues throughout our trip to clean the build up of insects we found every night. While in a countryside house such issues can happen, a proper disinfestation should have been carried out prior to the arrival of any guests. The rented villa is adjacent to the owners' villa. We were looking for a villa for exclusive use and the hosts had confirmed the owners would have not been there during our stay. However, in reality they were there the whole time. While they were very discreet, as we were looking for privacy and the hosts had confirmed exclusivity, this did not meet our expectations. Finally, upon arrival we were presented with a contract to sign and the lady who opened the house said it was just for the calculation and payment of usage of gas, water and electricity. We were also handed further papers as house rules. Upon careful reading of all the papers and rules written in a tiny font, we understood these were binding contract rules with associated monetary fines. When booking on airbnb, I had not been notified about these further rules or payment of charges for water, gas or electricity. I called airbnb and a representative confirmed that by booking through their website one is bound only by there rules, hence I did not sign and agree to these further rules. If one is prepared to put up with the above, overall a very nice place to enjoy the countryside quietness.

Dear Ilaria, Thank you for your comments. We take care of this. However I wish to state that sunbeds are like on the photo but unfortunately the UMBRELLA was broken by previous guests... but it was available another one. The numbers of the meters we take only in order to leave everything always turned on. House rules serve to protect guests and owners. thanks Mary

Maria ItalyHomeXP User Profile

Hi everyone, my name is Marie.

I am from the north of Italy (a small town near Venice) but now I spend most of my time enjoying my properties and the properties of my friends across Italy.
I am passionate about homes, architecture and Italian scenarios.

That is why, now that I am retired from jewelry industry, I have decided to invest and renovate in my properties and my friends ones to exploit their genuine character with all the comforts required from who travel, and share this extraordinary experience with international travelers.

I have carefully selected every location of my properties. The places I love where you can still taste the genuine Italian taste and where I like to spend a couple of weeks per year.

I have been travelling a lot during the years and experienced all the difficulties (and frauds, unfair hosts…) you may have when you are in a new house, town, country...

For that reason, I have been working with a group of passionate property owners to avoid all of this and simplify the life of our guest!

We have developed detailed home and local advises manuals that we advance at the reservation time. So our guest have in advance all the information about the house facilities, characteristics, local information and contacts for excursions, the best itineraries to do, recommended restaurants, ice cream shops etc... Including the "Need to know about Italy"... They find this printed also in the property.
In addition, we are preparing video of the house and its features that we will share before arrival.

Helping each other we can now grant a concierge service, assist for visa, arrange transfers and tours, provide toys or stuff for kids in the house upon request, bring a doctor at home if needed with translator in 4 languages (including Russian) upon request, accepts payments by credit card also onsite, and much more... .

We can grant that someone will be there waiting for you and that the quality standard is respected. Having a single counterpart and booking with months in advance how can you be sure that he remember that, isn’t unavailable for personal reasons?

We have developed an association to allow also our guests to save money for example for taxis (that in Italy are very expense), to have a chef at home for low prices, to have good label wines for lower prices… How can I say: Union gives power. And I would add… saving and assurance.

Anyway, God bless al travelers!
Marie
