Make a holiday rental home or villa in Monte Argentario, Italy your home away from home

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.

It has views over the Mediterranean, a real homely feel and a glorious pool. The house is well proportioned, each bedroom is a great size and the living area was fantastic. The owner was courteous and on hand if anything was needed. He gave excellent restaurant, beach, bar and walk recommendations and we had the most fantastic stay. I would recommend this villa to everyone.

Facilities were very good but air conditioning would have been nice for us northern Europeans. Porto Santo Stefano is a fantastic holiday destination and the position of the apartment makes enjoying the town easy. We didn't even mind the steps as we were so close to the town. We really hope to return one day.

The terrace was so nice that we made most of our dinners at "home". Walking distance to The city but beware of The aggressiv drivers. Only 5 miniutes to The best and largest Beach.
