The villa, the pool, the surrounding countryside really are as gorgeous as they appear in the photos—no filters needed! We were a group of 8 who were perfectly comfortable during our week at Magic Charme, which can easily accommodate 4 couples who want their own private bathrooms (one is downstair the hall from the bedrooms; the others are en suite). We made good use of the kitchen since our routine was to be out and about in this amazing part of the world during the day, then reconvene in the evening to cook up the delicious ingredients we’d found—not to mention drink the fantastic wine.
It was great to come “home” at the end of the day to a place removed from all the bustle of the coast, where all you hear is the sound of the bees buzzing in the lavender.
But we were still close to all the places we wanted to visit: The Etruscan Coast, Maremma, Siena etc... The relatively nearby town of Massa Marittima had plenty of places to stock up on basic groceries and other needs. Some of our group took a day trip to Siena; others visited Capalbio and the Maremma seaside. It was warmer than usual during our October stay. All in all this is luxury villa and always worth to stay!
A very enjoyable and structured agency Villa & Charme made the rental process very easy.
Many thanks for this unforgettable holiday, we hope to return next year.
The Podere is a really attractive and comfortable farmhouse on an Italian estate. There is lots of space inside and out. It is in a part of Tuscany slightly off the usual tourist patch, in wooded hills with fascinating volcanic rocks.
Corso was helpful and full of good suggestions for our expeditions.
Although a little remote, we used it as a base to visit Elba, Populonia, Porto San Stefano, Siena and Volterra as well as enjoying the beach. Because we were sightseeing so much, we probably did not take full advantage of its peaceful environment but we thoroughly enjoyed it nonetheless.
