Our house is situated in the foothills of Monte Argentario, a mountain promontory with long sandy beaches and a rocky coastline in southern Tuscany. It is as suitable for smaller groups in September when the prices are lower and the weather cooler.

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

Extra Note. We had three 5-star reviews in 2019. Two of them are top of the full list of 30. To find the third - from a September visitor -you have to go all the way down to number 21 which appears below another 5 star review dated.....................2009!!



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.

Follow one of the many hiking trails which will take you all over Monte Argentario, opening stupendous views up and down the Tuscan coast. One of them begins at the bottom of our drive.

Rent a boat and go round the Argentario visiting the blue grotto and the many small bays on the shore.

Visit the sulphur baths at Saturnia, an hour's drive from the house.

Don't miss the unique Etruscan tombs at Tarquinia.

Take a boat trip round the nearby lagoons where you will see flocks of migrating flamingoes and other wildlife.

Visit the Tarot Garden designed by Niki de Saint Phalle near Capalbio, a hillside town 35 minutes from the house with first class restaurants and sensational sunsets.

Wander round the market which takes place every Monday in Porto Ercole and on Saturday in Orbetello.

    Best family gathering villa

    We were 12 with 4 grandchildren ranging from 2 to 6 years old and this villa had something for everyone. Some air conditioned and fan bedrooms, lots of bathrooms, a large living room, great outdoor space and amazing views. There is a lovely terrace with lawn where children play while adults rest, a pool nestled on a lower level far enough from the house so no safety issues, a trampoline, a ping pong table and badminton court! Perfectly located to enjoy beautiful beaches, charter boats for island hoping and dine in Porto Ercole (If you can find a parking spot!!) Lourdes and Luigi care for the house and gardens and are the most pleasant and helpful people I have met in a rental. A lovely cook is available, speaks English and prepares delightful Italian dishes. All In all we had the best time under the Tuscan sun!

    A spacious welcoming home, uniquely and conveniently located for a variety of holiday activities

    If you are looking for a spacious house hidden away on a coastal Tuscan hillside, but with access to a variety of places in southern Tuscany, Casa Moorehead offers a wonderful location. The house is spacious, but it is more than a house, it is a home, and we immediately felt at home there. Indoors or outdoors, the house is well appointed for holiday living, and the charming terrace places you in amongst the trees, but with view of the surrounding hills and the sea. Sunrise was a particular delight. We discovered that the house had a unique literary association, which added a special curiosity and dimension to our stay. The location places you within easy car travel distance of waterfront cafes and restaurants at Porto Ercole and Porto Santo Stefano, swimming beaches, islands off the coast, inland hilltop Tuscan villages and historic and modern attractions. And there are nearby shopping facilities for all your needs. Be prepared for a narrow road and driveway up to the house, but it is easily carefully navigated. We were a group of family and friends and thoroughly enjoyed what was an all too short 11 day stay. It was October, so pleasantly warm, not hot. John R

    Family vacation in beautiful Italian villa

    Thank you very much for a very pleasant stay in your beautiful house, John, which met all our expectations. Very beautiful place with great views, short distance to lovely beach and charming marina in Porto Ercole. We enjoyed the very beautiful terrace and garden including swimming pool. We could easily stay 13 persons in this very spacious and well-equipped house with 5 bathrooms. Thank you, John, for your quick answers on every question we had, planning the vacation, and all your help and guidance. And thank you to the housekeeper and gardener for keeping the house, garden and pool in perfect shape during our stay.
