This luxury villa in Tuscany is the perfect place to experience outdoor living at its best. Villa Pierino occupies an enviable spot on the side of the hill, tucked in between forest, vineyard and olive groves, and with spectacular views out to the beach, lagoon and yacht club.
The villa’s stunning gardens are a treat for the senses. Wander among olive groves, terraced vineyards and under wisteria-heavy pergolas, with the heady scent of rosemary following you everywhere. There’s also a very well-stocked kitchen garden and there’s no nicer way to spend a morning than out in the sunshine selecting fruit and vegetables from the ground to take to the lunch table.
After a long afternoon spent relaxing in the sunny infinity pool, wander over to the adjacent barbecue terrace for an evening meal. This outdoor kitchen area also has a covered dining spot to seat 12 – the perfect place to spend the evening, watching the sun set over the sea over a few bottles of Tuscan red wine and a meal of local meats and fish with veg straight from the garden.
On cooler evenings, the villa has a very cosy living room for you to enjoy, with a wood fire, deep, comfy sofas and a warm, neutral décor. The entire property has been expertly renovated by a renowned architect from the Poltrona Frau family. Natural materials and a muted colour palette bring a really relaxing atmosphere. Each of the bedrooms are individually decorated for a unique home-from-home feel, too.
With the addition of a games room, gym and all the mod cons you could need, you’ll find you need hardly leave this beautiful property during your stay, but there is lots to do right on your doorstep in this totally charming part of Tuscany.

“We had a fantastic time playing tennis at the golf club as well as on our boat trip – would highly recommend for other guests, it was the most amazing wooden pirate ship and they cooked us the most delicious lunch on board, plus they have canoes, water-skis etc… really great day out. They are called Isla Negra, Porto Ercole.
Thank you again for everything that you so kindly did for us – you were a total star and enabled us to have a truly special and unforgettable week. We must’ve been your worse clients you’ve ever encountered and I am sure any future guests will seem like a calm summer’s breeze in comparison, but we really can’t thank you enough for putting up with us and looking after us so brilliantly. IT WAS TOTALLY FANTASTIC!!!!!! Thank you a million for an incomparable holiday, your kindness and hospitality will never ever be forgotten and will forever remain at the top of everyone’s record.” Charlotte, Summer 2016.
