    A converted orangerie just 100 m from the beach

    Casa Limona is located on the estate Tomboli, about one hour south of Pisa. The estate is made up of the main villa, Villa Tomboli, and two small houses, with their own private garden: Casa Limona offered here and Casa Pineta. The villa and the houses have their own access to the beach which is reached by a path leading through a beautiful pineta (umbrella pine-tree wood) belonging to the estate.

    The former lemon house Casa Limona lies in the south looking basement of the Villa Tomboli, next to the orchard of the estate, which has become the Casa Limona's private garden. The main room is a kitchen cum dining cum living room with four large glass doors opening up onto the terrace and the garden. At the end of this room are the bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. 

    A private path leads through the pine tree grove and the dunes to the beach. Near the beach you will find a private cabana with sunbeds and parasol. You can leave your beach equipment here during your stay as the cabana can be locked.

    The estate is within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops, playgrounds and sports facilities. You can visit the surrounding hilltop towns and Pisa, Castagneto Carducci, Massa Marittima, Volterra, Elba, Florence are in daytrip distance.

    What you should know: In June, July, August and September you can hear music from the nearby campsites (every day either during the day or in the evening, until midnight at the latest). This has disturbed some of our guests, even though the large majority have not objected. 


    The Tomboli estate is the summer residence of a well known Florentine aristocratic family. This marvellous stretch of land which runs along the famous Maremma coastline lies very close to the famous village of Bolgheri which The New York Times ranked 11th out of 44 places to go in 2009.

    This is what the New York Times wrote: "Four words: George Clooney was here. The Italian coast of Maremma, a raw landscape of pebbled beaches in southern Tuscany, has, for some years, been the summer playground of Italian and English aristocrats. But now the beau monde is all abuzz about Mr. Clooneys visit; he rented the 16th-century Montepergoli villa in the village of Bolgheri. And Bulgari is reportedly looking at the coastline for a resort. A clubby waterfront bar in San Vincenzo, or the two Michelin-star restaurant next door, Gambero Rosso, which the estimable food critic of Le Figaro, François Simon, once called his favorite restaurant in the world."

    Unspoilt beaches fringed with dunes are backed by hillsides covered in Mediterranean scrub and olive groves, crested by charming hill-top villages. The reclaimed flatlands where cattle used to roam herded by the local cowboys have today largely been given over to well-husbanded vineyards yielding some of the most prestigious vintages in Italy (Sassicaia, Ornellaia).

    Liebe Frau Röhrig
    wir fühlen uns sehr wohl hier, der grosse Garten ist wunderbar und die Besitzer sind auch sehr lieb. Und hier kommt dann auch schon die Frage - ist es noch eine Woche länger verfügbar? Wir würden vielleicht noch eine Woche anhängen…

    Beaches: The coast between Livorno and Piombino is a succession of famous resorts and well-maintained clean beaches, many of which have been awarded Europe’s Blue Flag various times.

    It is here that Bolgheri DOC wines are produced - world-class wines such as Sassicaia, Guado al Tasso and Ornellaia as well as numerous others of the highest quality. This "Eldorado of Italian wine" as it has been called, is the result of nature's generosity, the climate and the talent of its wine makers. Bolgheri has become one of the most interesting and gifted areas in the whole universe of wine thanks to some illuminated personages, among such as Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, the oenologist Giacomo Tachis and the Marchesi Piero and Lodovico Antinori. The experimental use of "international" grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and the constant research for innovation and quality has attracted the interest and support of the best world wine critics such as Veronelli, Marvin Shenker and well know national and international wine producers.

    Where there is great wine there tends to be great food and the Gambero Rosso, voted the best restaurant in Italy and with 2 Michelin stars, is in one of the seaside resorts along the coast.

    Massa Marittima: Here, in one of Etruria's oldest and most prosperous communities, the same minerals that were extracted 2,500 years ago are still being mined. The first miner's code in Europe was drawn up here in 1310. Three years earlier, the graceful Romanesque-Gothic cathedral was completed. Decorated with three orders of arches and slender columns supported by lion-headed capitals, it stands on a steep flight of stairs above the square that contains Massa's medieval buildings, an architectural grouping characteristic of 13th-century Tuscan cities: the travertine Palazzo Pretoria of 1230 with its escutcheons of former mayors, the Palazzo Communale, formed of three crenelated tower-houses and decorated with frescoes, among them a Lorenzetti Madonna.

    Castagneto Carducci: An enchanting medieval village built around the Gherardesca Castle. In 1907 the name of this municipality was changed in honour of poet Giosuè Carducci who spent a year here with his family. The medieval castle has been enriched in time and offers stunning views of the valley. Each spring Castagneto is the venue for a major gourmet festival which attracts enthusiasts from all over Italy.

    The Parks of the Val di Cornia: The parks stretch along the coastal strip opposite the Island of Elba. The various archaeological and natural sites of the Parks make this area an interesting alternative to the traditional tourist destinations: a place where nature and archaeology converge to let you discover the charm of the "Toscana Minore".

    Everyone knows the Leaning Tower of Pisa, but the city of Pisa is not just the Tower, nor the marvellous Piazza dei Miracoli . Some of the less-visited attractions include one of Pisa’s oldest churches, San Paolo a Ripa d’Arno located in the middle of a magnificent garden by the river Arno. The Sinopias Museum with its magnificent collection of fresco sketches. Don’t miss a walk on Le Piagge, a tree-lined boulevard running along the river , beginning at Ponte della Vittoria and ending at Ponte delle Bocchette. It is very popular among the locals, Le Piagge makes for a nice off-the-beaten-path walk in Pisa, and a perfect way to discover Pisa away from the crowds of the main sites. More information on

    An excellent Spa - The Tombolo Talasso Resort belonging to the Antinori family - lies in the next village.
