Peaceful and Serene, a little slice of Heaven

5 of 5
This is a stunning piece of property. Amazing location, large garden. It was awesome! And the house- just wow. It's cozy with lots of modern updates, yet keeping with its old fashioned charm. The bedrooms for the most part are separated so it gives everyone some privacy. The family room furniture is so comfy and it was a great place to relax. We actually didn't cook much- our group likes to go out to eat- but the kitchen is completely equipped with everything you could possibly need. The house was spotless, the decks were so nice to relax on, and honestly it was hard to leave on our last day. Highly recommend. And Bea and her team are so nice, great communication, and truly care that people enjoy their stay. This house is two thumbs up from our group for sure. See you again soon :)

Perfect house for friends and families of all ages

5 of 5
I have spent several wonderful holidays with groups of friends in this delightful house. Everything the owner says about it is accurate in every detail. Trust him! The house is spacious, comfortable and simply and beautifully decorated and maintained - plenty of room to escape to read a book or to socialise, with an attractive, shady garden and a terrace with a magnificent view over the surrounding hills and the sea. Catering for onself is easy in the large well- equipped kitchen, and housework is efficiently taken care of by a local maid. For children and active adults there is table tennis, badminton and a charming pool (long enough to keep fit) set among flowers and trees. The house is filled with books for all ages. The surrounding area offers wonderful walks in the hills and safe swimming on local beaches with restaurants, loungers and umbrellas etc and a very appealing, friendly atmosphere. The local port, Porto Ercole, is an attractive, unspoilt fishing village with lovely cafes, restaurants, and clothes shops. Orbetello, the nearest town, has a fabulous weekly market. I wholheartedly recommend Casa Moorehead and its location for a perfect Tuscan holiday. Patricia

Settimana da sogno...

5 of 5
Il titolo dice già tutto... Ho soggiornato qui con mio marito e le nostre due bimbe a fine agosto. La casa è esattamente come compare nelle foto, bellissima e soprattutto immersa nella pace assoluta della campagna. Anche nelle giornate più calde è sempre ventilato, quindi si può pranzare piacevolmente fuori sotto la pergola anche a mezzogiorno. La sera, grazie alla posizione e all'assenza di luci, osservare le stelle è qualcosa di magico e assolutamente non replicabile in città, pare di averle così vicine da toccarle. La posizione è inoltre strategica, nel giro di 40 minuti massimo si raggiungono le più belle spiagge dell'Argentario, così come altri luoghi di interesse come Saturnia o Pitigliano. Paolina è gentilissima, disponibile e discreta. Che altro dire... Una vacanza perfetta, sia noi che le bambine siamo stati benissimo, e partire è davvero stato un po' morire ;-). Torneremo sicuramente!
