Why Camilla Grimaldi chose Monte Argentario
Lentisk is part of a large, wine and olive oil producing estate called Poderi di Capo d'Uomo, right on the sea, yet sits in a secluded area, surrounded by vines and olive trees. Guests can visit the wine cellars and try one of the 6 different wines made on the estate. The house has been recently restored and has all the comforts one could wish for, and is well managed by the estate staff. Being on the sea, the views are stunning, and enjoy a perfect sunset every evening. You can use the direct path that heads down to the private stone platform allowing sea access. There are also a number of walks. one to the tower which is the highest point of Monte Argentario, or to the cape which gives its name to the estate, Capo d'Uomo.

Seaside cottage extraordinarie!
From beginning to end Camille communicated responsively to all of our questions and requests. We were greeted by Maria who provided an excellent introduction to Lentisk. We were charmed immediately by the amenities and quaintness of the cottage. The views, comforts, and proximity to Porto Stefano are primo. Our wine tasting was fun with Ilio as he engaged with us and our desire to learn Italian and more about their wines. The olive oil has proven to be our favorite of all that we have tasted in Tuscany. We look forward to ordering vino from them! Anyone who is a guest of Lentisk will be so happy with their decision to holiday there!
It was a pleasure to have you both.
I’m glad that you’ve enjoyed Capo d’Uomo including the wine tasting.
The whole team of Capo d’Uomo is waiting for you next year.
Pictures are not enough
The online pictures do not do this place justice. The views and location are absolutely amazing. The house is more comfortable than I expected and everything seems fairly new. But the reason you would stay here is to get away from the crowds elsewhere in Monte Argentario and have this stunning seaside view all to yourself. The private sea access is also incredible - there is a rock to jump off into deep water and you'll have the place to yourself. Set among grapevines and olive trees, what else do you need.
With all the isolation, however, is a bit of a challenge getting here although after successfully getting to the property once it was easy. The roads are very narrow though. Our visit could have been improved if we would have been told to follow the signs to the Capa D'Uomo cantina and turning right to pass through the green gate before you get there (you'll have to get buzzed through with Camilla's name). At the T in the road, you drive right to go down to the private beach club (also amazing) by driving past an old "do not enter sign" and drive left to a white gate that you can pass through after you have the clicker you've picked up from check in at the cantina.
Anyway, a small price to pay for a chance to stay at this beautiful property!
Fantastic location if you want peace and quiet. Lovely cottage with great amenities and scrupulously clean. We were left a lovely welcome pack of the vineyard wine (beautiful) plus some essentials. The views and outside living areas are spectacular. Stefano and Maria are lovely and very helpful. We would definitely recommend this property but suggest a small hire car to navigate the local roads (ours was far too big) and brush up on your Italian.
Million dollar view
If you like waterfront and mountains-look no farther. Beautiful Mediterranean style house is a place you can relax and at the same time enjoy water on the wonderful Tyrrhenian sea.
Great wine tour at the location with Marco, great owner and many restaurants and shopping activities at the nearby town San-Stefano..
I’m glad that you’ve enjoyed your stay.
Many many thanks for your kind words.
Hopefully I’ll see you next year.
Beautiful, beautiful views!
We had a really great time staying here, the views are absolutely stunning. It was so dreamy to wake up there every morning and have have breakfast looking out over the bay. Perfect too for watching a stunning sunset and the stars at night will take your breath away (just make sure you have some bug spray!).
The cottage was very comfortable, the mattress was good and so slept well all week. It did lack a few things in the kitchen such as spoons (only had teaspoons, forks and knives for some reason). We purchased a tea towel and a sponge for cleaning up as they were absent too but they were just little things that were easy to purchase for our stay.
Check in was easy and friendly. I would recommend a small‘ish size car if visiting as navagating your way up and down from the property is not for the faint of heart. We would have really appreciated some sort of welcome/information folder that you usually receive with holiday lets as we had no idea what to do with the bins or where to find things mentioned such as the walks in the area and steps down to the bay, so perhaps this could be considered for future guests.
It’s a great place overall and I would highly recommend staying here if visiting the area!
Thank you so so much for the lovely words and hopefully I will see you next year.
It was a pleasure to have you.
Lentisk is perfectly located both for amenities, as well for going to the beach and site seeing. The property is ideal for couples and small families.
Lentisk is park of a wine and olive oil producing estate (Poderi di Capo d'Uomo), and the owner frequently takes guests on wine tours around her estate , as well as tastings.
