    Once an island, the municipality of Monte Argentario is now a promontory, connected to the Italian mainland by virtue of three narrow dams.

Monte Argentario tourism is on the increase, with visitors choosing to stay in renovated apartments or luxury villas in this attractive region – many of which offer stunning views out to sea.

    The Porto Santo Stefano area is a slightly busier port that is home to the majority of the holiday rental accommodation in Monte Argentario. It’s most prominent landmark is the Rocca Spagnola Spanish fortress, a 16th Century construction that dominates the villages’ skyline. The bay area, which encompasses several sandy beaches, is the main area to head to in this picturesque village, and offers fishing, swimming, sailing and water sports opportunities. There is also an excellent fish market and several traditional restaurants, the majority of which specialise in seafood.
