Most years you can swim right up to the end of October. The house itself with 10 acres of land is a completely private place and yet only five minutes from the sea and the unspoilt village of Porto Ercole with its pretty harbour, restaurants, bars and cafes Apart from the views, perhaps the most striking feature is the wide-ranging terrace, planted with pomegranate, olive, pine and lime trees. Here you can eat out either under a pergola or at another spot looking across the sea. In the evenings the outside lights make the terrace seem to be a part of the house. Nearby under the eucalypts you will find a ping-pong table and a trampoline for children. Elsewhere a badminton court close to the secluded pool for an after-game swim. And only five minutes away is one of the most beautiful sandy beaches on the Tuscan coast. Extending from the Argentario in a 6 kilometre crescent to the mainland, it has all the seaside facilities including bars, restaurants, wind-surfing, water and jet skiing. Behind the beach is a magnificent pine forest with deer and other wildlife. Bicycles can be hired to ride through the forest and you can stop at various places along the way to swim - see photographs. .Other expeditions: Take a ferry to the nearby island of Giglio and eat at one of its excellent sea-food restaurants and swim in the crystal-clear water (see photographs) Visit the sulphur baths at Saturnia, 90 minutes drive. Rent a boat and go round the Argentario visiting the blue grotto and the many small bays and take a picnic with you. Take a boat trip round the nearby lagoons where you will see flocks of migrating flamingoes and other wild-life (see photographs) Wander round the market which takes place every Monday in Porto Ercole and on Saturdays in Orbetello Follow one of the many hiking trails which criss-cross Monte Argentario, revealing stupendous views up and down the Tuscan coast. One of them begins at the bottom of our drive. Airports: Pisa is 2.5 hours drive from the house, Rome Fiumicino 1.5 hours, Rome Ciampino 2.5 hours

Interaction with guestsWe (the owners) live in the UK so will not be on hand for any advice or help needed, but you can always contact us either by telephone or email at any time during your stay at the house. If a problem arises you should initially tell the cleaner, Lourdes, who comes up 4 times a week or Luigi, the gardener who will be there most mornings. They both speak Italian and Lourdes speaks Spanish as well. But if a problem is not being resolved quickly enough or completely, please get in touch with us directly. And you should also contact us if it is anything to do with the internet because neither Luigi or Lourdes has any experience in this field.

Ideal Family/Group Vacation - perfect for all ages!
The house is large and roomy, and accommodates so many people! It is an ideal location (close to the beach, close to the mountains) and has a gorgeous view. You can lounge around all day reading books and playing board games just as easily as you can head out and choose your own adventure (swimming in beautiful secluded bays, walking across the beautiful national park nearby, eating the most amazing and affordable meals in small farms where they grow their own food...) We've come here twice - once with friends and once with family, and I must say that it is an ideal place for a group holiday. Everyone can live their best life!

Tuscan Villa in Porto Ercole
This comfortable family style Villa in the heart of Tuscany boasts beautiful views of the Marina below in Porto Ercole, as well as hiking trails around. It was a short drive into town, there's the beauty of the Marina, great coffee and dining. We loved our dinner at the villa on the veranda to relax There's a secluded pool to cool off in and you can also hire a chef to cook wonderful meals there. The tiramisu is a must. A notable Australian author - Alan Moorehead built the house and you can find many of his books to choose from to read while you relax on the veranda. We loved our stay and hope to come back soon.

Lovely family villa overlooking the Mediterranean
Excellent location with a huge terrace overlooking the sea and the local fishing port. Loved eating al fresco meals under the vines at the round marble table. Kitchen is large and lends itself to home cooked meals with the delicious local food from the market. The pool is secluded from the house so you can slip off for an early swim without disturbing anyone. Would highly recommend.

Stunning house in a stunning area
This is the perfect house to spend some quality time with friends and family. The view from the terrace to the sea and the surrounding hills is simply breath taking. Lots of space to come together and socialise – big dining tables, badminton, pool, huge terrace – but also lots of charming more private areas to retreat to and enjoy some peace. Like the house the area has everything you could wish for: a family friendly sandy beach with great restaurants, romantic coves around the Argentario, beautiful Tuscan towns nearby. We loved every minute of our stay.

It is certainly a good place to spend time with people --friends, family and children. Our family has been doing that for over 50 years since we first acquired the property. I hope new arrivals will experience the same quality.when they are here.

A car is the best way to get around locally. Buses run fairly frequently from Porto Ercole to the Feniglia beach, Orbetello and the station. The largest supermarket in the area is the Co-op, about half a mile outside Orbetello on the road leading back to the station. A much smaller Co-op can be found on the right hand side of the road leading from our house to just before you enter the village of Porto Ercole.

The details of how you reach the house are contained in the package of general information which will be sent out six weeks before your arrival. Airports. Apart From Rome Fiumicino (1.5 hrs drive to the house) there is another much smaller airport called Rome Ciampino. This is south of the city and mainly caters for budget airlines like Ryanair. More convenient is Pisa airport ( 2.15 hrs), which is smaller and only 10 minutes from the station with car rental offices withing the airport permetre Our local station is Orbetello (20 minutes from the house) which is on the Pisa-Rome railway line. Several taxis are listed in the notes you will receive later on. We recommend Claudio who is cheaper than the others and knows the house like the others..
