Last Minute Luxury
Gorgeous villas still available to rent in Europe this summer
Podere dei Limoni, Tuscany, Italy
Set amidst the hills of Capalbio in Maremma, Podere dei Limoni feels like a secluded paradise with wild beautiful gardens and a spectacular ocean view. The interiors are all neutral white-washed walls, polished concrete and contemporary art, a welcome break from the Renaissance overload of Tuscany’s museums and cities.
Each bedroom has its own outdoor access, and the villa’s piece de resistance is a sunken infinity pool, disappearing into the landscape of rosemary, lavender and mulberry trees. Down at sea level, luxury travel consultant Merrion Charles can arrange a private boat trip to Giglio, or tours around nearby wineries.
