A paradise

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything david describes and more. We stayed here with our 2 children and with another couple and their 5 year old son, and it was perfect. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and everyone has their own bathroom. The garden is amazing. You just want to bbq all day, while the kids play. The extra touches like the trampoline and speakers outside for your ipod hook up, make it ideal. The gardner and housekeeper are very friendly and available to help. The only thing that was not so apparent is the beach. The access is fantastic. A small private road 100 meters away. However, there is very little sand directly in front of the gate access, so you have to walk maybe another 100-200 meters on the left to put down an umbrella and towel. However, there are several very nice beach clubs 1 km away, that have good restaurants and bars where you can rent chairs for the day if you prefer. We liked tramonte for its excellent pizza, but the bar at florida beach club makes excellent frozen drinks, just a little expensive. There are also other beautiful beaches like near by that are worth seeing. You need to be prepared to handle flys and mosquitoes, but if light the candles and spray in the mornings you should be fine. There is no ac and you dont need it. The house is cool tucked in the pine trees. There are screens on the bedroom windows making it fantastic to sleep with the windows open. I would buy this house in a second. Its truly a one of a kind vacation home!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind comments, we love it too. Sorry about the beach, it has a will of its own and comes and goes with the tide. Sometimes you’re lucky and it’s huge, other times it disappears for a month and as you say, you have to head left or right to find enough sand to settle in for the day. Anyway, really glad you enjoyed yourselves, hope we meet next year!

eccellente vacanza da sogno

  • 5 of 5

Grazie Sacha e David, passare le nostre vacanza nella vostra magnifica casa è stato un privilegio. Vivere in una casa che è usata anche dai proprietari è una garanzia di qualità, dagli utensili per la cucina alla biancheria, ai letti fantastici e l'arredamento curato e di gusto. Il giardino poi è un'oasi di pace e refrigerio dove si può gustare un'aperitivo con il sottofondo del vostro impianto hifi o sentire i bambini giocare e godere della frescura della vegetazione curatissima. Altro elemento impagabile è la "spiaggia in casa" privilegio per pochi in un luogo dove per andare in spiaggia devi cominciare a pagare dal parcheggio all'ombrellone al lettino...da voi invece è tutto li a disposizione e dopo pranzo si può andare anche a fare un riposino a casa e poi si torna in spiaggia! Torneremo senza dubbio. ciao. antonella e sergio

Traumhafte Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben tolle Familienferien verbracht und einem sehr schönen Haus mit anspruchsvoller Einrichtung und kompletter Ausstattung, umgeben von einem sehr gepflegten Garten unter schattigen Pinien gelegen. Die Nähe zu einem langen fast menschenleeren Sandstrand war traumhaft. Das flach abfallende Meer ideal für Kinder. Mit einem schönen Blick auf den Monte Argentario und Porto S. Stefano.

Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt.

The door to our private heaven for one week

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beautiful house. We were welcomed by the owners with warm hugs and a delicious meal. David and his wife gave us great info about the area. The beach is a dream come true and only a one minute walk from the house. We spend every other evening in either Porto Ercole or Porto Santo Stefano which are only ten minute drive from the house. The train station in town is a perfect way to get to Rome, Pisa, or Florence...

Overall this place is what i call a dream vacation. We didnt want to leave.

Thank you again to David and his wife for the warm welcome.

Owner's Response: Thank you Michaela, Jemar and family. It was great to meet you all and so nice that you managed to do so much and see so much during your stay here. If you get a chance to come back before you return to the States next year, we'd love to see you again. All the best, David & Sacha

Fantastica casa al mare

  • 5 of 5

In questa casa stupenda abbiamo trascorso 2 settimane ad agosto con le nostre bimbe di 2 e 1 anni e con una coppia di amici con la loro bimba. La casa di Sacha e David è curata in ogni particolare ed è equipaggiata di tutto ciò di cui una famiglia con bambini può avere bisogno, sia dentro sia fuori, dalle stoviglie alla biancheria, dalle bici al bbq. Il giardino è bellissimo per il relax e per il gioco dei bambini e il portico esterno consente di mangiare sempre all'aperto. La spiaggia è un po' ristretta, probabilmente a causa delle mareggiate, ma è pulita, tranquilla, non affollata e raggiungibile direttamente con una camminata di 80m in un viale privato e sicuro. Infine, quello che troverete è ben più di quanto le foto e la descrizione possano dire...

Owner's Response: Grazie Cristina e Alessandro, molto gentile. Per fortuna la spiaggia è tornata durante l'inverno, è aprile, ma i miei figli hanno già fatto il bagno un paio di volte. Speriamo di rivederci presto David & Sacha

Casa Cuore is uniquely positioned a short 10 minute drive to either Porto Ercole, Porto Santo Stefano or Orbetello each of which has its own unique character, personality and seaside charm.

Inland, la Maremma, 'land of brigands and buttery' is an undiscovered treasure of Tuscany with unspoiled ranges of hills and ancient hilltop villages, Capalbio, Pitigliano, Manciano, Sorano, Scansano and Magliano to name but a few. Seat of the Etruscans, colonized by the Romans and later conquered by the Spaniards, the Maremma boasts rich and varied cultural roots with plenty to do and see. The food and wine is some of the best in Italy. There are great local restaurants or you can buy direct from the vineyards and farms or in the local shops and markets. The beach is spectacular and never crowded and you can rent sailing boats and windsurfers nearby.

Other Activities: Kite surfing and fantastic food & wine

Notes:
Casa Cuore is our weekend and summer house which we use extensively throughout the year so it comes with a fully stocked kitchen, coffee, tea, milk, sugar, oil, vinegar, spices, dish washing liquid, bottled water etc. All we ask is that you replace what you use. We can provide linen and towels, but if you can bring your own, especially for short stays that just makes life easier for everyone.
