Chack in is from 15.00 and check out by 10.00. 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. The supermarket Simply with all basic necessities is located some 5 minutes away as you descend towards Porto Santo Stefano. 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 - please avoid them. We are happy to discuss any specific requirements you may have and meet them if we can. Enjoy your stay

Our group of friends stayed at the Villa Cannatelli for 4 days. It is a beautiful house with lots of outdoor space to have nice dinners barbequeing and to enjoy the pool. The area is quiet, has a nice view and garden. We were introduced by the owner's friend who led us from the town to the secluded villa, a few minutes away.

We did not miss anything while there. Just bring drinking water as tapwater is not potable.

Many thanks, I'd hope to come back and stay at Villa Cannatelli again!

un'oasi di pace nel verde

  • 5 of 5

La proprietà e' proprio un'oasi di pace immersa nel verde. La casa e' ben attrezzata e la terrazza e' fantastica. Gli spazi esterni sono molto grandi , il bosco e' molto suggestivo. La piscina e' un ottimo divertimento per i bambini ma uno sfogo molto piacevole anche per gli adulti. Non e' una casa anonima, si capisce che i proprietari amano andarci anche loro. Il proprietario e' stato molto disponibile. Ci tornerei! adriana

Posto bellissimo proprietario molto disponibile

  • 5 of 5

Io e miei amici universitari siamo stati quasi dieci giorni a villa cannatelli, e' un luogo molto bello, tranquillo, immerso nel verde. La casa a due piani e gli ampi spazi esterni (splendida la terrazza) ci hanno permesso di isolarci per studiare, e abbiamo approfittato della piscina per rinfrescarci. La villa è' isolata ma sta a pochissima distanza da Porto Santo Stefano, circa 5 minuti in macchina, e sono facilmente raggiungibili in macchina anche le spiagge e Orbetello. Proprietario molto gentile . Decisamente rilassante!

Abbiamo passato 10 giorni splendidi!

La villa é molto bella,con tutti i confort necessari, compreso un grande barbecue che abbiamo parecchio utilizzato.

Il parco é ampio e ben tenuto, la piscina puntualmente ripulita é molto più grande di quanto non sembri sulla foto e con vista sul mare.

La notte si dorme magnificamente, nessun rumore poche parole un paradiso terrestre,ma a pochi minuti dal mare e da Porto Santo Stefano.

Una persona sul posto si occupa di ogni possibile esigenza ed il proprietario vi contatta per assicurarsi che tutto vada bene...

Probabilmente cercheremo di tornarci il prossimo anno, nel frattempo la consigliamo vivamente.

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!!

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.
