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, depending on size).

The space
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 bedroom, a bigger room with three single beds and a bathroom. Outside there is a porch with seating for outdoor dining, a nice slice of garden both in front and on the side and backyard with clothes hangers and outdoor shower.

Guest access
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.

Other things to note
Please notice we do not usually supply bed sheets and bath towels. We may do so on request, at the cost of professional cleaning, that is 10€ each person for a whole bed set, and 3 bath towels each: small, medium, large. Also, we do charge electric and gas power according to consumption. It is not usually a significant amount for guests but it is for us at the end of the year. Also, this encourages a sustainable use or resources. The house is set in the middle of a 4 hectares property meaning 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.

Location

Capalbio, Toscana, Italy

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.

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!
