Description
Description

The "I Calipsi" property is located on 4 hectares of private land along the river "Chiarone" (clear water), surrounded by nature and only 2 km from the sea. The area offers a variety of activities for all ages and tastes: from the medieval villages that offer many cultural activities to the beaches, spas and restaurants offering delicious local dishes.
At 'I Calipsi" we welcome couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), and furry friends: pets, preferably small size, and good temper.

The interior of the house consists of ground floor with open plan kitchen, living room with fireplace, master bedroom and bathroom and a loft with a second double bed. Outside there is a porch with seating for outdoor dining, a nice slice of garden and backyard with clothes hangers and outdoor shower with hot water.

The first day you will be greeted by the owners and you will be given a key to the main gate and a set of keys for the house that you will be expected to return on departure.

We (the owners) are going to be on site the majority of the time to offer help when necessary, if not we will be both available on phones. They are always on.

The 'I Calipsi' property, is located along the river "Chiarone" (clear water), which represents the geographical and political border between Lazio and Tuscany, 2 km from the sea.
“I Calipsi” lies:
- 25 km north of Tarquinia, the Etruscan necropolis, full of tombs perfectly preserved and painted in amazing colors, 8 km North of typical archaeological Etruscan site named Vulci, with a medieval castle, pre roman stone bridge, and a Museum, and a long walk among 2500 years old tombs, surrounded by trees, and ending on a small, delightful, crisp clean lake.
- 20 Km to the South of the ruins of the ancient Etruscan town of Cosa, on the hill of Ansedonia, with the Museum and a sightseen path.
Being right on the boundary between Lazio (the area region of Rome) and Tuscany (the area region of Florence), our property allows easy access to both areas.
In the hinterland of Lazio, we have the Tuscia area, rich in Etruscan sites and cities to visit: Viterbo, the ancient city siege of the popes, Tuscania, with the magnificent Basilica of Saint Peter and its medieval crypt, Sutri with the necropolis and the Archaeological Park, Capranica, among many others.
In the hinterland of Tuscany, the medieval villages of Capalbio (10 km), perfectly preserved, allowing from the walk on top of surrounding walls a wide 360° amazing sightseen panorama across the area, and Magliano (30 km) in the heart of the typical Tuscan's famous wine Morellino di Scansano, with some of the most typical restaurants of the region.
Always in the hinterland of Toscana, about 40 km, the ancient Terme di Saturnia (hot sulfurous spring in the country), with their spa, the enchanting villages of Sorano, Sovana, Pitigliano, near which lies the Selva del Lamone, one of the three darkest places of Italy, with untouched nature and its suggesting lake, beside which there is one of the best, family lead, genuine and simple typical resort: “Fraviaco”.
Along the coast, the 300 hectares lagoon of Burano, the WWF natural park, with the ancient Saracen Tower and the town of Orbetello, lagoon harbor in the past and today tourist and commercial center (20 km).
We are at 25 km from Monte Argentario, one of the most beautiful promontories of the Mediterranean, full of beautiful bays, with very fashionable marinas of Porto Ercole and Porto Santo Stefano, a really high life and top touristic and shopping area, although crowded as it can be, but, once in a while, it can be attracting.
Rome is an hour and a half driving time to the South and it is also accessible by train from Montalto di Castro or Capalbio Scalo (the closest to us, 7,5 km) and Orbetello, with frequent daily connections.
Two hours driving time to the North, the famous town of Siena.
2 Km inward, the amazing, fantastic and must see “Il Giardino dei Tarocchi” the life time masterpiece dreamwork of Niki de Saint Phalle, the famous Gaudi disciple, on the property of Collina Garavicchio, owned by the Princes Caracciolo, that you can visit according to opening hours.
The closest beach is the "Chiarone Beach", 5 minutes driving time from our gate: 25 km of Mediterranean dunes beach, with no urban centers whatsoever along it (a part a couple of small villages) and an only one beach resort on 10 km, the "Ultima Spiaggia".
"I Calipsi" is located in "Serpentaro", known for the quantity of Etruscan tombs, visit (URL HIDDEN)
The area is agricultural and tourist, famous for the production of melon and is, at the time, attended mainly by Roman and Florentine tourism.
It in not possible to list all the countless excellent big and small restaurants in the area, covering the widest range of prices, but always of an excellent price/quality ratio.
The Hosts will be more than happy to spend some tome with you, to advise according to your taste, and to your requirements as for distance, budget, ambience.
Be welcome to our small place, relax, and enjoy.

To get to "I Calipsi" it is necessary to have a car. To get around from the property we advise a car and if you feel adventurous and sporty a bike can be used to get to the closer villages or to the beach.

The house is set in the middle of a 4 hectares property, and the property itself is located at the end of the main road; from there on, there is only our private country road, about half mile, to reach our location. It all means that it is a very peaceful and quiet place to be, surrounded by nature, the majority of the time the only noises you will hear will be the birds chirping, the cicadas and the rustle of the leaves of trees.
And, it is very safe both for kids and pets.
As we are surrounded by nature, olive trees and crops, and we love it, the property is only partially fenced, and a very adventurous pet could decide to go a bit too far.
In that respect, this unit is provided of a removable fence, surrounding a dedicated shadowy area of about 40 square meters.
The fence is set on place only if needed.

L'heure d'entrée dans les lieux est 16:00 - 22:00.

First of all please do notice we do charge energy consumption separately, according to real consumption. Both electricity and fuel to warm up water and and house in cold season. It is a small amount in summer but keeps guests cautious with letting unnecessarily on lights or hot water. We expect our guests to treat the property (indoors and outdoors) with respect, do not litter, respect flowers and plants, respect and save wild life, even small one like lizards, birds, butterflies, and when smoking we expect them to do it outside and always using ashtrays all over the map: garden, road, bush, wherever. We allow pets with pleasure depending on the size as we have pets of our own, but they have to be gentle to our pets and to humans, and we expect the owners to properly clean after them.
A tight requirement is to take maximum care about handling BBQ and cigarettes, as like in all green areas, under southern sky, there is always the risk of fire, especially during the dry season (prudentially, mid June mid September).
We strongly recommend and require to always close accurately the entrance gate. It is not a safety requirement, but a privacy one: our property is not accessible, or even visible from the outside, and we have experienced there are people, willing to take a sight, just out of curiosity . . . we understand that, this is not a danger nor a major problem but it is unpleasant to be cut while sun bathing or otherwise relaxing in the garden, by bikers, or hikers, asking "Hi there!! Am I on the right path to Capalbio?", it happened, it is a lot of fun, but at the end is annoying. So please, always close the gate, both when getting out and when getting in. You'll be given a set of keys for it.

I and my husband, we both love our three kids, our little she dog, our old she cat.
We are dedicated to the garden, to the house, we love all kind of music - mainly rock, jazz, blues, classical - we love movies, old b&w classics, comedies, Woody, french movies.
We are both fond of african art, we have been traveling a lot world wide, but cheaply, before having kids.
Now we enjoy our small piece of land, and tend to stay there as much as we can, which means most of time, as we are now both retired.
Our home town is Rome, and we plan to arrange to host there too, but it will take a while before we'll succeed in that.
Husband has a big collection of vinyl records, about 2000, and no more time left to listen to it!
He likes listening to the sounds of nature, rather . . . as I do.
We both love working outdoor, in the sun and in the wind . . . for citizens like we've always been, it is really refreshing and relaxing.
We enjoy having guests, if they like talking to us and spending a little time together, this is a pleasure. If they prefer they privacy untouched, we like that too, as we've always more things to do than we're able to!
