Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Porto Santo Stefano, Italy your home away from home

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.

Quiet place with amazing fantastic view on harbour.

4 of 5
Really quiet place on top of the hill with fantastic view on sea and harbour Porto Santo Stefano. You have to expect a lot of driving with car. Owner react and answering really quickly with kindness and politeness. Few problems he solved very fast. Only one negative is count of mosquitoes. They are everywhere throught the night and evening. Recommend spray repellents and electric repellents.

Fantastc views

4 of 5
Small apartment with huge terrace overlooking the main harbour. Great for watching the comings and goings of the fishermen and the ferries as well as the huge yachts. The property is up a very steep, narrow hill and then a steep drive then about 60 steps, you need to be fit. The property was very clean. It’s quite a walk down into the harbour area and to the nicer restaurants which are in the next harbour, and it’s all uphill on the way back, but you don’t get the view without being up hill! Very little information about where supermarket was/ local bus/best restaurants etc in the apartment and we only saw the owner for about 5 minutes (she lives in the flat below). However, tHe ladies at the local tourist information (just past the petrol station in the harbour area) were very helpful and told us everything we needed to know. There are several very small beaches you can walk to and there are a couple of fab restaurants among the 60 or so in the area. The bus goes into Orbetello and you can change there to get to Porte Ercole and the beaches at Feniglia. We had a great time there and the weather was fabulous.
