Great Vacation Spot

I stayed at this home in September 2009. It is a wonderful house to base a Tuscany trip. It is close to the Mediterranean and also to such great cities as Rome, Florence and Siena. It is also close to great Etruscan villages such as Sorano and Sovana, both great spots for hiking.
The house itself has views of the sea and the surrounding countryside. The kitchen is great for cooking meals and the terrances provide wonderful places to eat the great Tuscan food. There are pots in the kitchen that can cook pasta for 20!
And let's not forget the books that are everywhere and all in English. Some are written by the original owner of the house. The house is clean and taken care of by a wonderful housekeeper. There is also a gardener who takes care of the pool.
If you don't want to cook in the great kitchen, then Porto Ercole, the nearby village, has great restaurants. And if you would like a day trip, then take the ferry to my most favorite place in all of Italy, the island of Giglio.
I would recommend this great Tuscan house to anyone.
