The name of the small village of Cavoli comes from "cavili", the local name for squared blocks of granite that were once extracted from the quarries in the area. Cavoli beach is located along the Costa del Sole, just a few kilometres from Marina di Campo, and nestles below the rugged southern slope of Mount Capanne. It is one of the most popular beaches on the island for its beauty, for the white sand of granite origin, for its transparent sea of magnificent turquoise colours and the particular microclimate which attracts sunbathers even during the low season. It is well protected from the small bay and on the horizon lie the islands of Montecristo and Pianosa.
The property "La Torretta” (the small tower) is located in a dominant position, with a beautiful view of the sea, which is a few hundred meters away, and is located 700 meters from the beaches of Cavoli and Seccheto.
The "Torretta", as its name implies, was an old building used as a lookout post controlling the bay and the current owner has been able to keep the charm of the old house.
The main house and outbuildings are located in their own grounds, an area of about 4,500 sq. m. a small park with pine trees, olive trees and gardens; the old house has recently been extended and is spread over two floors for a total of about 150 sq. m., plus a studio apartment and an annex.
