Villa Azzurra is a beautiful, stylish seaside property with its own private access to the sea. 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 staff.
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.
Access to this piece of coastline is impossible on foot or by car and can only be managed by boat.
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.
