Once an island, the municipality of Monte Argentario is now a promontory, connected to the Italian mainland by virtue of three narrow dams. Lying 35km south of Grosseto, Monte Argentario encompasses two villages – Porto Santo Stefano (which faces north) and Porto Ercole (which faces south). 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 Monte Argentario coast is laden with sandy stretches and clear waters, which present ideal opportunities for swimming, water sports and sailing trips. Those who prefer to stay out of the water can enjoy the offerings in traditional seafood restaurants, stretch their legs on a coastal walk and admire the scenery – including the many 16th century look-out towers that are dotted around the area.

Monte Argentario has a number of historic look-out towers, and many of these can be found in the Porto Ercole area, including the fortresses (Forte) Stella, Filippo and Santa Carolina. Porto Ercole itself is a small, quiet fishing port, which has a historical centre – the home of the Church of St. Erasmus, and an ideal base for those seeking a relaxing holiday far away from the crowds.

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.

                                                    My stay at Villa Cannatelli was simply lovely! The location is perfect, a very peaceful spot in the wood but at the same time it's only ten minutes away from Porto Santo Stefano shops and restaurants. There is plenty of room around, suitable for adults, teens and kids. We particularly enjoyed the pool area and the stunning view from there. We also appreciated the upper terrace, well equipped to get relax and have a drink at sunset. We made much use of the barbecue and the outside eating area as well. Looking at the very unique interior with a lot of character, you can easily recognise the owner as a real traveller. The villa can get up to ten people. We were two families, anyhow all of us could have our own privacy. The owner and the caretaker were both very often in touch with us, to check everything was ok with the property.The maintainance of the pool was also very attentive. The time went on very quickly and it was a pity to leave this fantastic place! Villa Cannatelli definitely worths the value and we highly recommend to stay!!

                                                    The villa was nice and very clean. Check in/out was really easy. Great location. Would definitely come back. Thank you Cristina and Marco!

                                                    Unfortunately we haven' t been very lucky with the weather, but this didn't happen to ruin our stay! What an amazing place! In the morning I used to swim for an hour while my boyfriend was enjoying his breakfast by a terrace facing the beauties of Porto Ercole. For what concerns the villa, as soon as you step in the atmosphere brings you back to history, you can stay hours and hours to observe and read all the historical documents hanging on the walls. Last but not least cleaning and amenities were very well appreciated.
