Tenuta di Macericca is part of a property that covers about 10 hectares of land, distributed among olive groves, woods and newly-planted vineyards; the available garden is about 2000 sq m, spread out over various terraces which are covered mainly by paved areas and partly by lawn (about 300 sq m) with bushes of lavender, sage and rosemary, olive and cypress trees and ornamental plants. Outside the living room French windows on the ground floor are large paved terraces with umbrellas providing shade to small tables, chairs, sofas and a long table for outdoor dining, the latter directly in front of the kitchen French window, facing the pool. The entrance gate to the property leads directly to the parking area, just a few steps from the main entrance.Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.
In the most secluded area of the property, on a lower terrace about 20 m from the house, and accessed across a paved path and then through a gate, is the completely fenced-in pool which measures 7 x 14 m with the depth varying from 0.95 to 2.30 m. Lined in PVC with a wooden border, it has a metal ladder for access to the water, chlorine purification and internal and external lighting.
