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.

Things to do in Monte Argentario, Italy

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.

Places to visit on holiday in Monte Argentario, Italy

Whilst staying in Monte Argentario it makes sense to explore both of its villages, and a good way to do is to take the Strada Panoramica scenic road which runs along the coast and connects the two.

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.

Weather in Monte Argentario, Italy

Rainfall is low all year round and any time is a good time to visit.

Travel to Monte Argentario, Italy

The nearest airport to Monte Argentario is Rome Fiumicino (FCO), from where it is a pleasant two hour drive along the ‘Aurelia’ coastal road to your destination.

Lots of space inside and out. Great view

5 of 5
We were welcomed really nicely. And having arrived by train given walking beach and bus maps. It was thoroughly explained to us before booking that it wasn't ideal without a car as on a hill just out of the town which was kind BUT thankfully we still booked as the location was perfect for our family. Away from the noise of the port we could wake up to birds singing and cicadas. The climb was hot in the middle of the day but near the end we realised there was another free bus that stopped close by. The house is quite basic in decor but clean and spacious. We really hope to come again. If you are fit I recommend no car and walking and busing everywhere! Thanks to Daniela and Paolo. P.s.There are mosquito nets at the windows but little gaps under so still bring repellent if you are tasty to mosquitoes!!!!

The apartment was exactly as described and very clean. The owner was very helpful and answered any queries we had very quickly. There are lots of lovely beaches nearby and there is a free bus to get to them.
