DELIGHTFUL VILLA ON TUSCAN COAST WITH PRIVATE BEACH CLUB

Porto Santo Stefano Villa Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 guest suites, sleeps 10

'La Rondine di Mare' is a charming villa set in an acre of Mediterranean countryside that boasts spectacular sea views. It is on a quiet road not overlooked by other properties. The house is very big and nicely divided so that everyone has some private space. The sitting room which has three double glass doors that lead outside. Two wings lead off the sitting room. The first leads the master bedroom. The other wing leads past the kitchen and dinning room, to a bunk bed room and shower room. The dinning room has a large round table which is ideal for feeding children or using when it rains and the kitchen is long and easily fits several adults cooking simultaneously. The kitchen has another exit that leads to the car park and terrace. Two short, external flights of stairs lead to the two guest suits. The house is decorated elegantly with an eclectic style of the well travelled.

There are 3 terraces. The main one off the sitting room has a teak dining table that seats up to 15 people and several trees that create very welcome shade from the summer sun. In addition there is a large square umbrella and pergola that has a canvas covering providing a large amount of shade. The gardens and grass lawns are ideal for sunbathing or playing catch with your children. The view from this side of the house is due west towards the island of Giglio. Most evening there are spectacular sunsets! On a clear day you can also see the islands of Monte Cristo and Corsica and if you are very lucky even Elba.

The second terrace has a bamboo roof and teak table for 4. We like breakfasting here or having an drink while looking at the island of Giannutri.

The kitchen terrace has recently been resurfaced and is a useful space for your children to play in while you cook or take a break at the other side of the house. There is also a dedicated area for drying clothes.

The Monte Argentario peninsular: You can explore the near by port of Santo Stefano and the marina at Porto Ercole with their fish stalls, markets, boutiques and restaurants. Take the ferry to the islands of Giglio and Giannutri or visit the inland medieval towns of Magliana in Toscana and Capalbio. Or even swim under the waterfall at the Saturnia hot springs.

A perfect location for all ages.

We are an Anglo-Italian family with an Italian mother and British father. We grew up in England and spent idyllic summer holidays at the villa with our Italian grandfather, his extended family and loads of cousins. We are four siblings based in Rome (me), Paris and in the UK. I am an event organiser, married to an Italian doctor and we have three girls.

Allegra Bennett purchased this villa in 1960

It is great for large families and people that want a little privacy. The house is well divided so that you can be together or relax on your own. The road is quiet with only 5 other villas and a very famous Italian pop star (Antonello Venditti) for a neighbour (who is rarely around and is very quiet!). The area is really safe and there is a lovely welcoming feeling at the beach (just say my name). The beach club has everything that you could need. Lifeguards, bar, restaurant, showers, playground with swings and ping pong. There are also many places where you can sit in the shade other than your umbrella. There are safe caves to explore and a diving board. The playground is near the entrance where a lady sits, who loves children and keeps an eye out for them all.

Beautiful Villa, perfect holiday destination!

We stayed with some friends at this gorgeous villa and found it o be a perfect holiday destination! The villa is large with a great layout. The bedrooms are in different areas of the house which makes them feel very private, with lovely areas for everyone to come together in the large sitting room and lovely outdoor spaces. Perfect for big Italian lunches!
The view is spectacular and we found ourselves staring out at the sea for most of the holiday!
There is lots to see in the area, with gorgeous beaches very near to the villa and beautiful landscapes.. not to mention great places to go and eat!
I cannot recommend this villa enough, a perfect place to relax and
unwind! We had a fantastic holiday!
Owner's Response: Gosh. You are too kind! I am glad you had such an enjoyable holiday.

the photos don't do this house justice
it's peaceful, private (on a private road) and silent! the perfect place to relax with friends or familly. The view is amazing. at night it is very romantic with no light pollution you can see millions of stars (especially shooting stars!).
the house itself is big and full of light with huge windows leading onto the terraces. it is very much a familly home and we loved it.
the owners were very helpful and know the area well. The beach club is 5 mins away but if you are prepared to walk so are other undiscovered bays.

Family Vacation to Italy

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 14, 2008
  • Stayed: Jun 2008
This was our first family vacation to Italy. The home was unbelieveable and more than we expected. The owners left their personal photos etc. in the home which gave it a most charming presence. The ocean was beautiful and the gardens spendid. Definitely a villa that we would highly recommend or enjoy returning to one day. The home was clean and the owner always in touch to answer any inquiries I had prior to my arrival.

Monte Argentario is an Italian well-kept secret. This peninsular on the Tuscan coastline is renowned for its spectacular setting and seashore.

Two parallel roads lined with pine trees and kilometres of sandy beach link the peninsula to mainland Italy. Prototypical Italian hairpin roads wind their way round the mountainside to the ports of Porto Ercole and Porto Santo Stefano.

Poised between the mountain as its backdrop and the Mediterranean Sea is the picturesque Bay of Cala Piccola.

Golf: A new golf course has been opened. www.argentariogolfresortspa.it

The Argentario Golf Club, with its par 71, 18-hole course, excellent practice facilities and hotel, is set to play an important role in Argentario’s leisure and tourism development.

The club is located in a protected oasis of Mediterranean maquis, with fine views across the valley to the open sea, the Orbetello lagoon and the hills of the Maremma in the distance. The undulating terrain, extensive use of water hazards and unforgiving rough provide an enjoyable challenge for all abilities.

Whether you are fine-tuning your technique or learning the rudiments of the game, the Argentario Golf Club offers a truly diverse and unique golfing experience. Look no further for your next golf holiday, golfing break or corporate golf event!

Notes: Guests are welcome (handicap of 36 required) – however, it necessary to reserve a tee time and soft spikes must be worn. Dogs are permitted, provided they are kept on a lead.
