Six special features of this family home which has had the same owners for nearly 60 years. 1 A stunning garden terrace with panoramic views of sea and mountain. 2 A brilliant and inexpensive local cook available for dinners (see 2019 review). 3 Long sandy beaches perfect for children. 4 Every bedroom has air-conditioning or a ceiling fan. 5 Mosquito nets in every bedroom and bathroom and also in the kitchen. 6 Florence, Rome, Pisa and Siena all within easy reach ****************** More details Our house is situated in the foothills of Monte Argentario, a mountain promontory with long sandy beaches and a rocky coastline in southern Tuscany. 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, an hour's drive. Rent a boat and go round the Argentario visiting the blue grotto and the many small bays. 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 More

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.

About the neighbourhood
Details of the local area including restaurants, bars,doctors and many other things come with the information sent out 6 weeks before arrival.
Getting around
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.
