Nice stay.

  • 3 of 5

The location is good. The beach area was private but no one there for chairs though it looked as if there was a spot where someone offers that occasionally. Property owner offers beach towels at 20 euro/person which seemed rather pricey considering we were there only 2 days. Property has a lot of character but overall impression was it was a really fabulous villa at one time but now is a bit neglected in some areas, particularly the outside. Photos a little deceiving but the rooms were very clean and nice but again some details gave the impression of it needing some tlc. Overall we were happy with the stay. Washer on lovely terrace was convenient. Roads good and close to Porto Ercole. Hostess was very sweet and helpful.

Great rental after walking tour

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed at I Gabbiani after a walking tour of Maremma. It is located in a lovely residential neighborhood outside of Porto Ercole, with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, a lovely deck overlooking the sea and the port, and a living area that is light and airy with lots of windows. The beach at Feniglia is very close and is a long sandy beach with local eateries -- very unusual for the Mediterranean and fantastic. It is about a 2 mile walk to the center of Porto Ercole which was great during the day, but a little uncomfortable at night. We loved Le Bar Vista for wine and lunch with amazing views and local people. One of the best parts of I Gabbiani is the owner Federica, who speaks perfect English and was very helpful when the key got stuck in the lock during a thunderstorm. She also was kind enough to call a taxi for us to go to the train station in Orbetello. October is a very slow month in Porto Ercole with many places being closed for the fall and winter, and we never saw a bus running at all, so if I would go again, I would choose September. In summary, I Gabbiani was lovely, clean

Vacanze in famiglia

  • 4 of 5

Per la prima vera vacanza al mare con nostra figlia (14 mesi) abbiamo scelto Villa Fenice. L'appartamento I Gabbiani è risultato decisamente comodo e spazioso, tanto da permettere di invitare amici per splendide grigliate sul grande terrazzo. Il livello della proprietà (pur se non completamente ristrutturata) è decisamente alto, sicuramente adeguato al prezzo richiesto. Lasciano a desiderare solamente i bagni, piccoli e piuttosto mal rifiniti: quello definito padronale, ad uso esclusivo di una delle camere, raggiunge a malapena i 2 mq. Altra nota leggermente negativa è per la cucina, un po' piccola e di scarso livello (IKEA) per la clientela a cui mi pare la proprietà si rivolga, anche se decisamente fornita di pentolame e attrezzi.

Note assolutamente positive per lo staff, che ci ha assistiti per qualunque necessità e si è prodigato per risolvere piccoli inconvenienti che si sono presentati anche se si trattava di Ferragosto.

Poggio Pertuso vive un po' a sé, fatto di ville ma non comodissimo per i servizi e soprattutto per i parcheggi. Da consigliare a chi vuole vivere una vacanza in relax e godersi la villa, magari con un gruppo di amici o con la famiglia.

The perfect home base for exploring Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely property, situated in the hills, but walking distance to the beach, was fresh, clean, charming and conveniently located to enjoying Porto Ercole and taking day trips around Tuscany. The property is stocked with all the essentials (the kitchen was very easy to acclimate to) you would want in your own house, making it very easy to call home for the week. Our favorite feature was the large sundeck, where we enjoyed breakfast, dinner and late night stargazing. It's a convenient walk down to the beach...and we enjoyed being up in the hills a little to take in the great views of the harbor. The team who manages the property were incredibly friendly, professional and accommodating. They coordinated receiving some important documents for us one day, whilst we were out and about enjoying a town in Tuscany. I definitely recommend this property as well as the agency. Thank you for a wonderful, memorable stay!
