Peace amongst the olive trees

  • 5 of 5

The large well kept garden blends into wild, still to be cultivated, mini forest which was wonderful for our inquisitive border collie who had the free run of the entire estate. The collie took an immediate liking to the owner Silvio and kept him company as he lovingly tended the olive trees in the early mornings. Oh, and the humans had a great time as well!

The nice single story guest house is separated from the main residence by just a few steps and there is a variety of couches and garden chairs to sit on around the patio, the centrepiece of which is an ancient olive tree casting its welcome shadow.

You will need a car to get into the nearest town, Portos Stefano, which is about 3km away down a very steep hill. The nearest small supermarket, Simply, is found on the approach to the town and from here you can purchase most of what you would need.

Silvio will provide access to a private bathing club situated in a beautiful bay a few Kms from the house but for those with sufficient stamina there are many narrow cliff paths leading down to secluded beaches all around the coast of the peninsula.

Silvio grows an interesting variety of vegetables so if you decide to cook at home you may be lucky enough to be given courgettes or tomatoes. The best gift for us though was a bottle of Silvios home grown olive oil which we were assured is the best in all of Italy - and don't even mention Spanish olives to Silvio!

amazing two weeks in Villa Pettirosso

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing two weeks in Villa Pettirosso. Vila is nice and clean. Veranda is made for to enjoy your meal under olive trees and relax. Also possibility to use grill. Porto Santo Stefano is not far by car, you can go there for a walk or just to have a drink and watch boats anchor in port. Private bay Cala Piatti with azure sea and excellent restaurant is not far. Sea is clean and perfect for snorkeling. In the end there is Silvio and Ivana. They are an amazing people who makes your stay really relaxing. Fresh vegetable from the garden, advices where to buy fresh fish, olive oil or where to go for a trip are the reason why was our holiday perfect.

Argentario , una garanzia !

  • 4 of 5

Buongiorno ...

Il soggiorno è stato piacevolissimo e pienamente rispondente a quanto ci aspettavamo ... La casa era funzionale e in ordine , e con tanti spazi esterni da poter sfruttare ... Privacy assoluta , anche in considerazione del fatto che la Sig.ra Ivana ha lasciato la proprietà il giorno del nostro arrivo ed è tornata solo il giovedì successivo ... Forse una piccola cosa da segnalare è che il filtro della piscina non funzionava benissimo , e l'acqua era un po' torbida , ma niente di significativo .. Un giorno ci siamo accorti che non c'era acqua calda in casa, abbiamo avvertito e dopo qualche ora era di nuovo tutto a posto .

P.S. : Una chicca il posto al balneario di Cala Piatti ! .

Very peaceful and calm

  • 3 of 5

The location is nice and peaceful. Maybe a little bit far away from the shops and restaurants. A car is essential...

The private beach is very nice and a real add on in the accommodation package. It was only a little bit early in the season, not all shops and services where working.

The restaurant lose by has a good quality, but it is not ideal to become the favorite restaurant for the whole week.

Unfortunately the owner has switched off the power for TV and radio so we could not use it the whole week. As well they forgot to explain the function of the pool filtration - after three days the water was not anymore like it has to be.

Finally it is a nice and peaceful place, not recommended for families with children, or people who wants to join parties or night live.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. A pity you didn't say anything during your stay about TV and filtering system, those are super easy things to manage! We are always available for our guests. Anyway I'm glad you enjoyed the peaceful environment and the tranquility, this is a little paradise where loud parties are not welcome :)

In die Jahre gekommene Unterkunft

  • 2 of 5

Ne, das war nix, auch wenn`s auf den Bildern gut aussieht.

Cassetta ist leicht schmuddelig, wie auch alle Aussenplätze.

Alles feucht mit Tendenz zur Schimmelbildung.

Ältere Leute bemüht, aber überfordert.

Nicht genügend Privacy.

Badeplatz noch gar nicht in Betrieb, also dort verschlossene Klos, keine Bar, keine Leiter ins Wasser.

Preis/Leistungsverhältnis bei dieser Unterkunft geht so gar nicht.

Kurzfristig angekündigte, viel zu hohe Kaution: ist echt der Zusatzwitz.

Sorry, aber viel mehr als die Hälfte darf die Hütte nicht kosten.

Sylvio`s Öl von den eigenen Olivenbäumen ist wirklich gut.

Mi dispiace, ma ce vero. Keine Weiterempfehlung.

Vacanze da sogno :-)

  • 5 of 5

Villa Pettirosso è una bellissima villetta tra mari e monti.

Con la mia famiglia abbiamo approfittato di questa immersione nel verde degli ulivi. All'esterno c'era una veranda, un barbecue, una piscina...non mancava assolutamente niente per gustare al massimo l'estate.

All'interno dalla cucina, al salotto passando per le due stanze e i bagni era tutto impeccabile e pulitissimo.

I proprietari sono carinissimi e ci hanno consigliato benissimo sulle moltissime domande c'è abbiamo fatto (mare, ristoranti, ett.). In più abbiamo avuto la fortuna di mangiare della verdura che veniva direttamente dell'orto.

Grazie di cuore Adélie, Johanne e Pietro

Inoltre nel giardino c'è un orto con verdure biologiche che potreai raccogliere direttamente dalle piante. Inoltre per soli 100 euro al giorno potrai fare dele fan
