Porto Ercole area Castle Rental Photos and Description
Elegant apartment within the walls of a Tuscan Monument over picturesque Marina
This is a rare opportunity to stay in an elegant apartment within the walls of a pristine Tuscan National Heritage monument. La Rocca Spagnola, 1557, was built during the Spanish occupation of Tuscany and sits magnificently over the picturesque Marina of Porto Ercole. La Rocca is the perfect place for a quiet, romantic and peaceful retreat. La Rocca is beautifully maintained with fresh herbs growing (to be picked and enjoyed!) and stupendous views to be savored. The fortress sits within easy walking distance to a rocky beach and the working Marina of Porto Ercole. A number of restaurants offer the opportunity to sample Tuscan cooking (and wine!) as well as numerous bars (cappuccino etc.!) as well as fish-markets, boutiques and grocery shops. Wonderful off-season too with beautiful, wild walks and ideally situated to explore the Tuscan Maremma and archipelago, Ias well as easy access to Rome, Saturnia, Pisa, Florence etc.

Guestbook comments from the manager
WE spent our summer holiday at La Rocca, we stayed her for three weeks.As we decided on a relaxing holiday, our wish come true.We have had the most relaxing weeks you can imagine..Even our two teenager kids had a great time.
First we discovered the ins and outs of the fortress. Then on the beach and the harbour.But also all the different restaurants.We rented a small motorboat ( recommended!) and we went out on the sea to explore the isolotto and the many places to anchor and swim.We visitted L'Elefanta Felice ( the formal summer resident od our Royal Family) by boat, because by car you are not allowed to enter the road..
Staying here was great!
