Villa Romana is a beautiful, recently refurbished to a very high standard, gem of a property nestled in 1 ½ acres of Mediterranean terraced and landscaped gardens. It enjoys easy road access and "pieds dans l'eau" access to the sea. It is unique in Argentario, as it stands in an archaeological site, which consists of the most important remains of a maritime Roman Imperial villa on the coast of Tuscany. Guests are extremely well looked after by a highly attentive and discreet team consisting of an excellent cook, a housekeeper, two maids and a gardener. This level of service gives you the feeling of being in your own private boutique hotel.
Various terraces with either stunning sea or garden views
Pieds dans l'eau access to the sea
Within the villa’s confines lies the longest stretch of Roman Wall of the whole compound, adjacent to the sea. On the waterfront, there are very visible remains of the storage facilities (horrea), probably used for fish and farm products. Also clearly seen in this area, underwater, are the docking facilities built by the Romans.

The villa was built by the Domitii Ahenobarbi family in the first part of the 1st century BC. The last descendant of this family was Emperor Nero (whose real name was Lucius Domitius Ahenobarbus). The Domitii Ahenobarbi were prominent patricians, consuls and bankers (argentarii) and owned most of the area which, as a result, took its current name from them: Monte Argentario.
Villa Romana was completely renovated and refurbished to a very high standard in 2005. The house benefits from a highly efficient and well trained staff, including an excellent cook.
The villa is quite large, in excess of 900 square meters, with 6+1 rooms with twin beds plus 3 staff bedrooms, 2 kitchens and 1.5 acres of Mediterranean terraced gardens. It has an ADSL internet connection, satellite TV in the two living rooms and a TV in every bedroom.
