Terre di Sacra, Capalbio

Once a wild and marshy land, today an extraordinary oasis that perfectly integrates with the natural landscape and surrounding territory. To live and breath the unique air and spirit of this land, stay in one of Terre di Sacra's exclusive villas and cottages.

Capalbio is a romantic medieval town nestled between the southern Tuscan hills and the sea with endless hectares of wild landscapes and untouched nature. Perched on top of a hill, the town is built around the eighth-century Castle of Capalbio, first annexed to the Republic of Siena and later under the influence of the Spanish Empire, attracted to the nearby Lake of Burano, that built the Capalbio Tower still visible from the sea.

On the shore of this village find ​Terre di Sacra, a unique estate compromised of over twenty charming villas and cottages in southern Tuscan style that grant the perfect stay to discover the area and enjoy a sun-filled vacation.

​Terre di Sacra was established in 1922 by a group of friends after acquiring the territory, with the aim of protecting and honoring this land in the most respectful way. While the area was wild and inhospitable, the owners were not discouraged and worked for over a decade in the renovation and preservation of the shore, the hills and the nearby farm and agricultural land. In 1968, after the completion of the works, the owners helped establish the Oasis of Lake of Burano, the first WWF Natural Reserve in Italy, to further safeguard the unique landscape of the area.

Today the estate consists of 23 villas and cottages scattered along 12 kilometres of seashore that can be rented; a glamping site and an exclusive beach club located in one of the many golden sand beaches of Capalbio, La Dogana, where to dine bear foot enjoying a view of the wild beach and the crystal clear sea.
