The ancient town of Porto Santo Stefano sits on the inside of a fantastically picturesque bay in the shadow of Mont Argentario in Tuscany, Italy. The village is a breath of fresh air on the Grosseto coast, a perfectly peaceful spot from which to swim, sail and fish in the warm waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Time seems to be completely irrelevant as you settle into a Porto Santo Stefano villa, and you shall see no rushing during your entire stay. Those looking for a truly romantic cliff-side cottage in Italy will find heaven in Porto Santo Stefano, Italy.

Things to do in Porto Santo Stefano, Italy

Porto Santo Stefano is the largest town on the Monte Argentario peninsula, and is home to many of the most important historical monuments found locally. The Rocca Spagnola fortress dominates the skyline, build in the 16th century and still hugely impressive. Now home to two contemporary art exhibitions, dedicated to the fishing fleets and archaeological heritage of the region, the fortress is well worth setting aside a few hours from a self catering Porto Santo Stefano villa. A walk along the seaside promenade, the Lungomare, is hugely worthwhile, with spectacular views, idyllic cafes and many market stalls selling the best of local crafts.

Santo Porto Stefano is known for its nautical heritage. Fishing is particularly popular (and exciting) from Santo Porto Stefano accommodation. There are a great range of opportunities to go fishing in the area, whether from the rocky shore, the golden beaches or from the side of a boat. Sailing is also hugely popular, and there are a handful of water sports centres from which you can arrange lessons, equipment hire and excursions for sailing, windsurfing, diving and water skiing. The great annual boat race, the Palio dell’Argentario on 15th August, sees the whole town spring into life, and is a day well worth staying in Porto Santo Stefano for.

The beaches of Porto Santo Stefano stretch for many miles around the inside of the bay. The beaches are thin, and swap from fine, golden sand to smooth rocks, which is the perfect conditions for swimming and snorkelling. The warm Mediterranean beaches are perfect for windsurfing too.

Places to visit on holiday in Porto Santo Stefano, Italy

Trips to the Island of Giglio are very popular, and leave from the Port in Porto Santo Stefano. The journey takes an hour, and the island is famous for its sensationally clear waters and the charming little village of Giglio Porto, into which the ferry arrives. The stunning island is a huge favourite with swimmers, scuba divers and anyone with a snorkel. Visits to the amazing Roman villa of Giannutro and the Giglio Castle are well worth exploration if you can drag yourself from the beaches of Arenella and Cannelle.

Travel to Porto Santo Stefano, Italy

Rome’s Fiumicino Airport (FCO), or the Rome Leonardo da Vinci Fiumicino Airport to give it its full name, is the closest airport to a holiday rental in Porto Santo Stefano, although there is still 150km between the two. The airport is exceedingly well connected to the UK, with a huge range of flights arriving from around the whole of the UK. A hire car is strongly recommended during your stay in Porto Santo Stefano accommodation.

                                                            An absolutely gorgeous apartment and view await you! Located slightly uphill from the main port, this apartment gives you easy access to everything of interest (mostly restaurants, some entertainment, and a few shops). All you have to do is go down a flight of stone steps! The grocery store is only about 100m from the apartment, no stairs. There is a public pebble beach within walking distance down the hill, but a much nicer beach with 8km of sand and warm waters can be reached in 10 minutes by car (free parking on the street). The apartment itself is quite large with unbeatable views of the blue waters of the Mediterranean and the town. The beds in both bedrooms were comfortable. The linens were impeccably clean, as was the entire apartment. The kitchen was honestly the best-equipped I have ever seen in any rental property! There were two bathrooms, one with a shower/tub combo and one in the master bedroom with a shower. Supplies and small toiletries were thoughtfully laid out in both bathrooms. The one slight downside was that there was no A/C, but there were fans and nice breezes circulated when we left the doors and windows open (no bugs). The best part was the wrap-around private balcony you could access from both the living room and the master bedroom. There was no place like it to relax with a drink or enjoy a meal while admiring the view. We ate all of our meals outside and just couldn’t get enough of that view! Our host Ros was very friendly and welcoming. She thoroughly explained everything we needed to know and even gave us water and juice when we arrived knowing full well we hadn’t yet had time to buy supplies. She remained readily available throughout our stay and very easy to communicate with. Sorry it took me so long to post this review Ros! All in all I highly recommend this apartment for a memorable and relaxing vacation.

                                                            La villa, protetta da uliveti, piante da frutto e pini marittimi, ha una eleganza e cura nei dettagli da meritare già di per sé una visita. Ogni angolo delle sue camere hanno particolarità uniche insieme a un pulizia massima. Il parco accompagna l'ospite in passeggiate con angolature e scorci da ricordare. La piscina si affaccia su Porto Santo Stefano e ruba la voglia di uscire da questo paradiso. Il proprietario e il suo assistente ci hanno fatto sentire coccolati e seguiti fin dal primo istante pensando in anticipo a tutto quello che poteva esserci sia utile che di piacere (guide, acqua, consigli, libri...). Gentilissimo anche il giardiniere Gabriele che in modo molto riservato ha sempre accudito alla villa e aiutato in caso di necessità. La location meravigliosa, con un mare splendido e paesini unici ha fatto da contorno a una egregia dimora che rimarrà sempre nel nostro cuore. Tanta la voglia di tornare.
