Villa Emanuela is a charming villa on Tuscany Coast, set on a hill of Argentario Mountain just a stone’s throw away from the centre of Porto Ercole. Porto Ercole village is located at the eastern edge of the peninsula, facing the beach of Feniglia, a sand thong that connects it to the mainland of Italy. Originally named "Portus Herculis" from the Romans, which used it as a convict detention place, in the centuries it become a fishermen's port until the sixties, when it started to see its growth as a holiday place.
The villa offers great views and comfort whatever the season. A private swimming pool, the best sandy beach (La Feniglia) in Argentario, the proximity to a centre town with restaurants and any kind of shops make Villa Emanuela an ideal location for families.
The villa is set in an extensive grounds of approx 1 hectare with electric gate and an attractive gravelled driveway. There is a car parking at the entrance of the property for many cars or a parking area just outside the house suitable for 4 cars.The garden is set by some nicest spots as: the “small labyrinth designed” hedge with the rose garden, the roof with an elegant patio and the relaxing sitting area, the pergola with comfortable seating in the shade, outside near the sitting room. Approximately 75 yards away from the house on a lower terrace is a pretty private swimming pool, with a hedge running around for privacy – yet the hedge is not so high that you cannot enjoy the lovely sea views towards Porto Ercole.
A stone and grass pathway leads to a charming sitting area where large umbrellas offer an extensive shade to an outside eating area equipped by tables seating up to 15 people. On the same area the French windows give access to two bedrooms (a double and a twin each with en suite bathrooms with showers).
The main house is based on one level. From the sitting area outside you can access to a large and cosy veranda with sofa, from there you pass in a TV room and a large dining room furnished with antiques and squashy chairs. In the main house there are three double bedrooms and bathrooms, all beautifully furnished with original artwork and antiques.
The huge dining room with its large fireplace is a major feature of the house making an ideal entertaining room for large groups out of season or even in the winter. All the house is really well furnished with sought furnishings as you can see in any spot of the house: from the living room to the small dining room near the kitchen, or in any detail of the bedrooms and bathrooms.
