My name’s Graham and I grew up in the north west of England. After university studies in Scotland I left the UK to live and work in many different countries.

I’ve been enjoying life here at Podere Sant’Angelo now for over ten years and enjoy sharing my experiences of Maremma, where to eat and lovely places to visit, with guests.

I holidayed in this relatively undiscovered part of Tuscany while living in Milan.

Now I live here, the Maremma has proved to be a great antidote to the stresses and strains of urban life.

I still enjoy the opportunities the location offers for gardening, sailing and hiking.

The great views from Podere Sant’Angelo make this a really special place. There’s the view down to the coast at Porto Santo Stefano, in the other direction there’s the oddly shaped Monte Labbro, in front of the house there are wonderful sunsets.

The black night sky with the milky way stretching over the house is still a wonder to see.

After enjoying urban life in several of the world’s largest cities I now appreciate the close contact with nature offered by life here at Podere Sant’Angelo.
