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.
A truly special place
A very lovely house and grounds. It is a clearly loved family home, spacious and relaxed and yet incredibly well equipped especially the kitchen which was important for us with 2 chefs in our group. The whole atmosphere of Casa Moorhead is welcoming - lots of comfy chairs everywhere enabling everyone to either join together on the beautiful main terrace with stunning views of the bay, or to just mosey off and do their own thing, reading books from the very interesting library on the other terraces or wandering down to the very private, beautifully clean swimming pool.
The directions were good, given that it is up a fairly narrow lane and it really is 5 minutes away from Porte Ercole with great cafes and restaurants and a lovely wide safe beautifully kept beach.
We were a group of 11 friends and family ranging from 30 to 87 and we all found it a truly special place.
Wonder in the woods
The house was lovely with plenty of space for everyone to have privacy and also with good places to be together. The terrace overlooking the woods and sea was spectacular both during the day and in the evening. The kitchen was very well equipped and we enjoyed using it to cook although we also had Giovanna cook for us on a couple of nights and that was even more wonderful! She is a great cook and a lovely person. The pool lower down in the garden was also delightful and felt quite private away from the house. This property is very much a home and is full of books and has cosy sofas and chairs if the weather is not clement. We were travelling with friends and family and we all loved the house and gardens. we hope to return.
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
Wonderful family holiday
The property is rustic and has a great history. The highlights would be - spacious living area/views/pool/badminton court/table tennis/kitchen/terrace/outdoor dining area/cooks. In the heat of August it is a bit of a struggle to stay cool (no AC) but we coped nonetheless. Staff and owners are brilliantly responsive. Thanks to all!
Tolles Haus mit Charakter und Aussicht
Wunderbar gelegen, kurze Wege nach Porto Ercole und zu verschiedenen schönen Stränden. Grandiose Aussicht. Das Haus bietet viel Platz, könnte hier und da etwas renoviert werden, jedoch macht gerade dies den Charme aus.
Porto Ercole (ons lokale dorp) vijf minuten rijden, Orbetello (het dichtstbijzijnde station) 15 minuten.
Verderop maar binnen handbereik van de Argentario liggen de belangrijkste Toscaanse steden: Siena, waar de historische Palio-race wordt gehouden (1,5 uur), Florence en Orvieto (2 uur) en Tarquinia, met de Etruskische graven (45 minuten).
Porto Ercole wordt gedomineerd door twee 16e-eeuwse Spaanse forten en heeft een grote verscheidenheid aan winkels, bars, restaurants en cafés.
Aan de andere kant van de berg ligt het dorp Porto San Stefano, vanwaar veerboten dagelijks naar de lokale eilanden Giglio en Giannutri varen.
Er zijn verschillende tennisbanen in de omgeving en een kampioenschapsgolfbaan op 10 minuten van het huis.
Verder weg, op een uur rijden, zijn de zwavelbronnen van Saturnia. En dichter bij de hand de lagunes rond Orbetello waar u kunt gaan varen.
Andere activiteiten: wind-surfen, water en jetskiën, fietsen, eiland-hoppen, vissen, golfen, tennis, wandelen-paard rijden
