Lovely location

  • 4 of 5

This villa is in a lovely location with amazing views. There was ample space for our party of four and the villa could have twice as many guests with no difficulty. The property is well equipped and the villa owner and local representative were quick to respond and very helpful. We found that whilst the kitchenette was small it was well equipped. Two of the bathrooms are small, but are again well equipped and the towels and sheets were good quality and pretty new. We cooked nearly every evening, but gave up trying to eat outside due to the combination of cats, wasps and mosquitoes! The pool was well-maintained and the water was very clean. The Argentario peninsula is very beautiful with plenty to see and it would be nice to come back in the Spring and explore some more.

Great experience!!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Villa Cannatelli was simply lovely! The location is perfect, a very peaceful spot in the wood but at the same time it's only ten minutes away from Porto Santo Stefano shops and restaurants. There is plenty of room around, suitable for adults, teens and kids. We particularly enjoyed the pool area and the stunning view from there. We also appreciated the upper terrace, well equipped to get relax and have a drink at sunset. We made much use of the barbecue and the outside eating area as well.

Looking at the very unique interior with a lot of character, you can easily recognise the owner as a real traveller. The villa can get up to ten people. We were two families, anyhow all of us could have our own privacy.

The owner and the caretaker were both very often in touch with us, to check everything was ok with the property.The maintainance of the pool was also very attentive.

The time went on very quickly and it was a pity to leave this fantastic place! Villa Cannatelli definitely worths the value and we highly recommend to stay!!

Lovely sea views

  • 4 of 5

Charming and cozy house overlooking the sea. Loved the indoor and outdoor fireplaces during our springtime stay and we loved the high patio overlooking the sea. The house is well set up for great meals on the patio with an outdoor grill and a well stocked kitchen. We were there in the spring so not beach weather, but it was a great spot from which to explore the area. The caretaker met us in town within minutes of our arrival and let us in. We were a family of three traveling with a good friend and the set up was perfect--we had the downstairs two bedroom house and she had the upstairs apartment. Nice to explore the peninsula and farther afield to the hot springs in Santurnia. Only wish we had had more time!

October in Santo Stefano

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous and relaxing week at Villa Cannatelli. It was early October but we could still laze by the swimming pool and walk the near by beaches. Our favorite was Feniglia—you reach the beach by bicycling through the pine forest –and when on the beach, relax in little huts made of wood gathered on the shore.

Given our interest in the Etruscan history in the area, we spent time at the various sites offering such: the Museo Etrusco in Pitigliano and another museum in Orbetello. Another site, but quite different, is the Giardino dei Tarocchi—a mosaic wonder. What a treat, especially for the younger kids, who enjoyed running in and out of the huge gargoyles.

Eating—always a pleasure in Italy—was a delight. In Porto Santo Stefano itself, there were a number of restaurants we enjoyed. Pizzas, various pastas, fish, clams—you name it, we enjoyed it---while watching the local daily scenes of the sellers and other spectators around us.

And the Villa itself was superb—comfortable, quiet and very accessible to our various desires whether it be to reading, walking in the pine forest, making our favorite eats, or listening to the daily news. All most delightful—and we plan to return!!!

peace of mind

  • 5 of 5

I spent one fantastic week with friends in Villa Cannatelli- we had a great time. We relaxed, we studied, we spent unforgettable hours at Feniglia beach (which has some great castle-building sand) and we explored the beautiful countryside. The house is spacious, comfortable and absolutely beautiful-I especially loved the swings and the terrace. There is plenty of living space for everyone, even too much for six twenty-year-olds. We often went to Porto Santo Stefano, Porto Ercole and Orbetello (which are wonderful for shopping, gelato and yacht-watching), which are pretty close (we travelled with two cars). Monte Argentario is perfect for a seaside vacation, and Villa Cannatelli made it a perfect stay.

The house is equipped with everything and we didn't experience any sort of problems. I would like to especially note the owner's kindness.

Overall, I would recommend Villa Cannatelli to anybody who would like to experience Monte Argentario's beautiful seaside and countryside. The villa is perfect for families (children would love the cats) and for friends travelling together.

A secluded villa including three separate sleeping facilities surrounded by a large wooded terrain of Mediterranean vegetation. The villa is located about 7 minute drive from the centre of Porto Santo Stefano in the renowned Monte Argentario peninsula, a much sought after summer resort in Tuscany. From the villa you can drive to several beaches, the best being la Feniglia (natural reserve) within a 20 minute drive, although there are closer, smaller pebble beaches. There is also a variety of ferries from Porto Santo Stefano for daily excursions to the islands nearby, including Giglio and Elba -- or you can rent your own boat trip. About 30 minute drive is the Parco dell'Uccellina, a natural reserve on the Maremma coast. You can undertake other day trips by car in the surrounding areas of southern Tuscany and northern Lazio. Rome itself is about a two hour drive away. If you enjoy hiking, there are plenty of walking paths from the villa to explore Monte Argentario at your leisure.

Notes:
The villa is ideal for couples and families, but not suited for people with mobility difficulties. We provide bed linen and towels (changed once a week). Guests are responsible for their own catering and cleaning during their stay. You will also need to take the rubbish down to refuse collection points along the road towards Porto Santo Stefano - unfortunately there is no rubbish collection in the area. As everywhere in the area, mosquitoes are present in the summer, and can be annoying especially at sunset. Protect yourself as it suits you. The villa is fully fenced, including the wooded area, so larger animals should stay out. Local cats roam freely and boars occasionally visit. The supermarket Simply with all basic necessities is located some 5 minutes away as you descend towards Porto Santo Stefano. We are happy to discuss any specific requirements you may have and will be pleased to meet them if we can. Enjoy your stay!
