La Lepraia Estate
Europe / Italy / Tuscany
La Lepraia is a large estate (13 hectares) in a magnificent position boasting spectacular extensive views on the countryside and the Mediterranean Sea, up to the main Tuscan Islands Elba and Capraia, and in clear days up to Corsica.
It is located between the coast and countryside, on the hills facing the Etruscan coast, close by Castellina Marittima in Maremma in a secluded position. The location is ideal for wine lovers as it is close by Bolgheri, well-known for the production of the most renowned wines in the region.
The estate includes a compound of four stone buildings dating back to XVIII° century that have been carefully restored to an high-standard in full respect of the Tuscan tradition. Three of them, sleeping up to 20 people, are available to guests while the fourth one is not available for rental. La Lepraia estate is ideal for large groups or families who wish to enjoy their time together while retaining some privacy . Each of the three houses benefits of a private garden and a private covered terrace, equipped for 'al fresco' meals. Every house is equipped with all modern comforts and are tastefully furnished to a high standard with a pleasant combination of local antiques and some ethnic pieces. All bedrooms have their own bathroom . The main building of the estate sleeps 10 guests, located at the center while the other two sleep eight and four guests. The bedrooms in the two larger houses are equipped with air-conditioning included in the price. The large house has been furnished with a pool table, very appreciated by guests at night as they can play together in the comfortable billiard room close by the large living room. The smaller building is ideal for a family with children, there are two bedrooms each one with its own private bathroom. The staff of La Lepraia lives on a separate apartment on the estate, it is available to support guests during their stay but they do not interfere with their privacy.
A special feature is the beautiful solarium and pool area, which includes a large infinity swimming pool (16 x 8 m) with shallow end, a built-in barbecue and a cabin with a kitchen, a bathroom and a changing room.
The estate is part of a natural Reserve called "Il Terriccio", offering a generous natural habitat to plants and wild vegetation. The owners, a prominent Italian family, fell in love with the beauty of this place and started an extensive and ambitious restoration project. The landscape work was carried on by the internationally renowned landscape architect Paolo Pejone who designed the five hectares' garden using mainly autochthonous plants, thus perfectly blending it into the surrounding environment.
Despite being in a secluded location, it is only 15 km away from the nearest motorway exit and it is therefore an ideal base for exploring the main historical Tuscan cities for those who will feel to leave this oasis. For those looking for seaside beaches are only 20 Km away.
