House, with 4 bedrooms and en suites, in Cala Piccola an exclusive seaside compound resort hidden in the typical Mediterranean vegetation offers a unique view of the islands, particularly, at sunset. 8 guests may choose from 2 master bedrooms and 2 rooms with bunk beds. A spacious drawing room with an annexed TV room gives onto a garden that looks straight at the entrance of the small port on the Is. of Giglio. Comfortably seated under a grapevine drinks are a must at sunset or at night while spotting the stars and navigation lights of boats as they sail by. The garden sports a sun umbrella that allows for quiet enjoyable breakfasts in the shade as well as lunches or moonlit BBQ s. At the other end of it a large fig tree satisfies most guests's appetite.

The upholstery is by Valentino, the cutlery is for 8 plus guests. Linen, as bathroom towels, is changed every week. The kitchen has: a 4 hob cooker with an electric oven, a microwave, dishwasher and washing machine and stainless steel basin. The beach club in a beautiful "small bay" (Cala piccola) boasts crystal clear water, a Bar, Restaurant, ping pong, wifi. A Sun Umbrella, 2 sun pads & 2 deck chairs are included for 4 people in the rental price. The rental sum is also comprehensive of a regular mini van shuttle service to the beach club for all 8 guests. (June to end of Sept.) One may drive down to the beach or walk the mile long descent amid pine trees and rhododendrons overlooking the view of the bay and the Island of Iannutri. A private car park under the house hosts 2 small cars. It's an ideal place for families or romantic couples. Golfers note there is a beautiful 18 hole golf course just 20 minutes away. Historical sites are to be found within a quarter of an hour, an hour or 2 hrs from Rome. 2 beautiful sand beaches are also reachable in about 20 minutes. A wood, on one of the beaches, sheds roe-deers. Ideal for bicycle rides that may be rented on site. Sailing, riding and boating facilities may also be found at nearby Porto Santo Stefano.

A most excellent place, full of great beauty

Beautiful position with stunning views

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in this property on numerous occasions over the last 10 years. The house itself is old fashioned but clean & comfortable. The reason we keep returning is the views are fabulous as is the Beach Club nearby. I highly recommend the restaurant at the Beach Club! We also enjoy the nearby small harbour town of Porto San Stefano. The man responsible for the property, Michael, is a highly entertaining & mildly eccentric English/Italian!!

Vista incredibile!

  • 4 of 5

Grande spazio aperto dove mangiare e godersi lo splendido panorama di giorno e soprattutto di sera!

Casa grande ed accogliente, cucina con tutto il necessario e ben attrezzata.

Molto belle le due stanze matrimoniali, con i rispettivi bagni "privati", forse un po sacrificata la stanza con i due letti a castello, bella l'idea della dependance, aggiungerei solo un ventilatore per le nottate più calde.

Molto disponibile e cordiale Mike!

Comodo raggiungere la spiaggia di Cala Piccola (con 4 ingressi + ombrellone gratuiti) e cala del Bove (scogli), molto più ardua cala del Gesso (40 min a piedi), per il resto è necessario l'utilizzo dell'auto.

Owner's Response: Mirko ed i suoi "super ragazzi e ragazze" sono stati degli ospiti estremamente educati. Hanno lasciato la casa esattamente come l'hanno trovata, in condizioni ottimali. Grazie per il vostro ordine e per la vostra simpatia. Mi auguro di rivedervi presto. Ps. La camera con bagno ed i letti a castello é stata ideata per bambini, che a loro sembrerà un reggia, ma voi, in confronto, siete un pò cresciutelli... :)

panorami indimenticabili

  • 4 of 5

la casa ha grandi spazi esterni ed interni suddivisi in modo ottimale anche per due nuclei familiari.Panorami e tramonti danno uno spettacolo diverso ed irripetibile ogni sera, da sentirne nostalgia al rientro a casa. Purtroppo le spiagge più belle non sono semplici da raggiungere ma ne vale la pena andarci, a parte cala piccola che passa la navetta sotto casa.Il proprietario è una persona molto disponibile per qualunque cosa.

De belles vacances sur un site magnifique

  • 3 of 5

La maison est spacieuse et bien située avec une vue imprenable sur l'ile de Giglio.

Le propriétaire est charmant et très accueillant, de plus, il parle très bien français.

Le seul bémol, la cuisine est un peu "vieillote".

Nous recommandrerions cette location.

Nel verde sospesa sul mare

  • 4 of 5

A pochi km da Porto Santo Stefano, immersa nel verde, questo immobile arredato con gusto, pulito e in buono stato, regala comfort abitativo con stanze accoglienti e bagni in stanza. Soggiorno spazioso che si affaccia sulla bella e ampia terrazza che regala vista sensazionale sul mare e sul Giglio. Tramonti strepitosi. Il mare splendido è raggiungibile a piedi con una passeggiata di 5 minuti o con navetta ed è una bellissima cala con bar e ristorante.

A Michelin guide will supply you with a variety of historical sights to visit within 15mins to an hour's drive. In example: Siena, Florence, Orvieto, Todi, Capalbio, Tuscania, Rome. Etruscan, Roman and medieval periods are all at hand. Rome is about 2 hrs away for which guided tours may be arranged prior to arrival. We suggest you see buzz4tours on the net . Play golf in nearby Porto Ercole or go for bicycle rides to spot deers in the wood along the "Feniglia" a marvellously long sandy beach. Experience dining at the "Antica Trattoria Aurora" in Manciano in Toscana or a simple pizza "al Forno" down at the harbour near the shipyards. If you cannot do it all, come back for a second round, have fun!
