Villa Upupa is immersed in the wonderful pine forest of Roccamare whose private park is fully fenced and controlled by a keeper, and the beach is blue flagged (quality and clean sea). The area is used only by the owners of the villas and their guests. The sea and the long white sandy beach (one of the best in Tuscany) are just 800 meters where you will also find a beach hut (20 metres away from the seaside) and a private bungalow/dressing room. You will be guaranteed total privacy because access to the beach is limited to just the owners of the villas in that area. The villa is nestled in a lovely garden (more than one hectare) with English-style lawn and tall pine trees, well maintained and looked after by the gardener.

Villa Upupa is immersed in the wonderful pine forest of Roccamare whose private park is fully fenced and controlled by a keeper, and the beach is blue flagged (quality and clean sea).

The villa is nestled in a lovely garden (more than one hectare) with English-style lawn and tall pine trees, well maintained and looked after by the gardener. On the frontside, the property looks like a sleek one-storey house and, as situated on a gentle slope, the villa has a few rooms on a lower level but with still a splendid view of the garden. Moreover, Villa Upupa is surrounded by a loggia which opens out onto 2 spacious terraces offering relaxation areas to have shelter from the sun and to dine alfresco. At guests' disposal a table tennis. The garden has several equipped areas: living in the shadow of a tent, dining alfresco under a romantic gazebo... The back of the garden has an ample space for parking and for your children to play safely. Villa Upupa is a delightful seaside property, redecorated in 2010 in a modern and luxurious style with design furniture and features as well as many unique pieces of art, since the owner of the villa has a passion in art being the Artistic Director of the Modern Art Museum. It can accommodate up to 17 people in 9 bedrooms (five doubles, three twins plus one for the domestic staff), and 10 bathrooms: 7 en-suites (4 with bathtub, 2 with shower and one toilet) and a further 3 bathrooms (one with bathtub, one with a shower and one toilet).
