About the property

Spacious apartment with large terrace facing sea in Porto S. Stefano Argentario

This renovated 120 square meter (1200 square feet) apartment on the Tuscan coast is set above the old harbor of Porto Santo Stefano. The large sheltered terrace looks out on to the picturesque town, coastline and beyond the sea to the mainland. Have your breakfast here out in the sun, breathe in the fresh sea air and dine ‘al fresco’. Fast WiFi connection. All rooms have a sea view.

Large Master bedroom has queen sized bed and ensuite bathroom (with fabulous view!) and access to the back terrace. Second bedroom has twin beds and gorgeous view over the bay. Large hall bathroom with jacuzzi tub.

Living room with two sofas and TV, large dining area and open kitchen make up the main living area. Kitchen is fully equipped, including an espresso machine and American style coffee pot - (or use a French Press if you prefer!). The living area is very spacious and airy, breezes and views from every angle. Study area off of the living room can be used for additional guests (sofa bed) or as a quiet spot to work or read.

From the living room, you access the front terrace equipped with table for 6 to enjoy al fresco dining all day long. Sit with a cocktail or a coffee and watch the boats coming and going in the harbour. You might not want to leave...

Shops and bars are just around the corner and the nearby stairs lead you down to the sea, harbor and central piazza where you will find restaurants, cafès, bars, and shops – it takes only a few minutes to walk down. Ten minutes' drive to miles of sandy beaches, local ferries to the islands of Giglio & Giannutri, medieval villages, the wine country! An ideal base to explore the many sights of southern Tuscany.

Nearby villages of Orbetello and Porto Ercole offer more options for dining, shopping, exploring. All within easy reach.

Head inland for picturesque Tuscan countryside adventures!

About Megan Todd & Nazzareno Todini

Megan is from USA, Nazzareno from Rome, Italy. We have 2 children and we live in Rome.

Megan Todd & Nazzareno Todini purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Megan Todd & Nazzareno Todini chose Porto Santo Stefano

We bought this property in 2016 after having rented it ourselves since 2009. When it came up for sale, we eagerly invested! We love the apartment and its amazing view of the Tuscan seaside. It is spacious, airy, bright and comfortable for a family or a group. Every room has a sea view and a cooling breeze. Porto Santo Stefano is a delightful seaside town and the nearby villages of Porto Ercole and Orbetello are lovely as well.

What makes this apartment unique

We enjoy walking down the stairs from the apartment to the beach at Il Moletto and eating lunch in the old port area. The nearby beaches of Feniglia and Gianella are equally beautiful - one for unspoiled nature, one for the convenience of parking, beach umbrellas and capuccino on the sand! When we have had enough beach, we head inland to enjoy the rolling hills of Tuscany and the local wines. There is truly something for everyone in Porto Santo Stefano!

Magnifique vue sur le port et la mer

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons grandement apprécié ce grand appartement propre, confortable et lumineux.

Les chambres sont grandes , les lits et la literie sont de bonne qualité.

Un seul bémol, l'ascenseur n'a pas fonctionné quelques jours . Il faut monter un étage pour avoir accès à l'ascenseur. L'appartement se trouve au 2e étage.

Place de stationnement disponible à l'appartement heureusement.

Un gros merci aux personnes qui nous ont accueillies, ce fut un plaisir de découvrir la gentillesse italienne.

Perfect Place to stay at Porto Santo Stefano

  • 5 of 5

We have been a week with our 6 year old twins in the appartment and enjoyed the stay very much.

For a family of four the place is more than large and I guess also with 6 people it would feel spacious.

While from the outside it might not be the most beautiful place once you are inside and enjoy the beautiful views all around its really great.

I guess the storage building the appartment is in was originally meant to be used rather not for vacation purpose but for living.

We had a very hot week with 35 plus degrees but always felt extremely comfortable with the fresh sea breeze at that location passing through.

For us it really felt like the perfect place to be in the village being high enough to have the beautiful gulf and city view and fresh breeze and low enough to easily walk to shops, harbour and sea.

What adds up to it is that the appartment is very well equipped and the owners and their family are extremely nice and responsive.

I hope very much that I will have the opportunity to go again in the future.

It is like the home you always wish you had! Fabulous location, superbly equipped & spotless

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 days here & wish it was longer. The property is very spacious & very well maintained. The panoramic views from all sides were an outstanding feature of the apartment. The location was fantastic in the heart of the port - very easy to explore the town on foot. The kitchen was very well equipped & lots of nice homely touches. Megan & Tod were perfect hosts & provided a wealth of information, both verbally & with local guides to the area.we really appreciated our welcome drinks on arrival. Porto Santo Stefano was an excellent base for exploring the Tuscan countryside & local beaches. We certainly hope we have the pleasure to revisit in the future.

Owner's Response: Dear Anne and family, Thank you for your review! You were perfect guests who not only enjoyed the house but really took advantage of all the area has to offer: beaches, Tuscan countryside, local restaurants, (the view from the terrace...) We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll be back (for two weeks next time, right?!). Until next time, Megan & Nazzareno

Fantastic view, good location

  • 5 of 5

Its a very nice location with a view to die for!! The apartment is well planned with two separate bedroom's. Each bedroom with a complete and well equipped bathroom. The kitchen, as well as the other areas of the apartment was complete and functional, our only minor problem was that the dish washer did not clean as good as it should. We stayed four adult for one week and we all enjoyed the stay. We choose to eat out every day and that gave us a 15 minutes healthy promenade down to town. In conclusion we can certainly recommend the apartment for guest that are looking for a good stay in the charming Porto S. Stefano.
