Six-Bedroom Villa with Private Golf Course 2,300 Acres of Private Paradise in Wimco's Tuscan Portfolio

NEWPORT, RI, March 2007– A centuries-old, restored, six-bedroom farmhouse with its own 18-hole golf course on 2,300 private acres in sought-after Tuscany will be one of the most popular villas in its Italian inventory this season, predicts Wimco, the international villa rental company.

'When it comes to understated bells and whistles, Villa Maremmana (villa code BRV MNA) only 30 minutes from the sea represents as complete a villa vacation as we can imagine,' says Stiles Bennet, Wimco's Director of Marketing. 'We feel very fortunate that the villa owners, who have had this gem in its family for over100 years, brought this restored beauty to Wimco.'

In addition to on-premise golf, Villa Maremmana's owners also provide access to their private yacht so guests can tour the islands on the Tuscan archipelago.

Fully air conditioned, the villa includes fireplaces in both living and dining rooms and a large, fully equipped kitchen for preparing finds from nearby village markets. An outdoor pool includes a Turkish bath in its pool house. The golf course is surrounded by cork trees and small streams. The estate produces its own olive oil, wine, honey and homemade jams.

Peak season weekly rates July 1 – Sept. 2 are $14,560. Wimco can arrange local concierge services that include provisioning the villa in advance of the arrival, arranging for a wine tasting and private wine cellar tours, cooking demonstrations in the villa, a private chef to cater a meal, bike tours, trekking in the local hills, horseback riding, guided art tours of Florence and Siena, and in villa yoga and massage sessions.

This is one of 170 villas available in Italy this summer, 100 of which are in Tuscany and Umbria.
