Villa Porto Ercole is a typical Tuscan freestanding villa surrounded by a large garden decorated with a Mediterranean flora: oleanders, geraniums, pines, oaks and agaves. Enjoy your stay chilling in the garden under the Tuscan sun while sipping a glass of wine or doing a barbecue party. In the garden you will find several areas to eat al fresco furnished with tables and chairs. Here you will find also 2 staircases on each side of the property, accessing the beach below. Beaches (the sandy part of the coastline) are never private in Italy, but its hard to access this beach other than trough your property. So even being a public beach there are not many visitors. You will enjoy also the fabulous view over the blue sea.
The Villa, entirely built with rustic stones walls, is surrounded by many terraces furnished with tables and chairs.
From the garden you will find 2 stair access to the beach below. This area of Tuscany is well known for its transparent blue sea.
On the ground floor, entering from the terraces, you will find a large open place formed by the living room and dining area. It is decorated with many sofas, ancient wooden pieces, a central fireplace and a patio full with plants. You will find also a very large table that can accommodate 12 people. From the dining area you will reach the well furnished kitchen with everything you will need: 4 burner stove, oven, dishwasher, fridge with freezer and all the pots and pans to prepare a delicious meal.
A spiral stair case close to the kitchen leads down to the basement where you will find 4 bedrooms: 1 double bedroom with ensuite bathroom, 2 single bedrooms, 1 triple bedroom and 2 bathrooms.
The bedrooms are all decorated in a typical Tuscan style: terracotta floors and wooden furniture.
From the living room a stair case leads to the first floor. Here there are 3 double bedrooms each one with its own bathroom.
Villa Porto Ercole is the best place to practise all kind of water sport activities. Windsurfing and Scuba Diving schools are right there. If you like to rent a sailboat or a motorboat no problem at all. The little harbour is less than 2 km from the house. You can do sport fishing and sight seeing. You should visit Orbetello, Porto Santo Stefano and Castiglion della Pescaia. There are two lovely beaches in walking distance called Rive del Marchese and Le Viste. To visit the beaches Mar Morto or Spiaggia Lunga you will need a car.
