Monte Argentario is the corner of Tuscany that the crowds don’t see. Instead, this peaceful peninsula offers abundant nature and endless views of the Tyrrhenian sea. Light breezes rise off the water and gently pass over the high ground of Villa Argento.
It’s a remarkable place. Elegant, relaxing and bathed in bright, summery light. Rolling lawns segue into shaded terraces and there’s a lovely pool, surrounded by decking. It’s all been carefully laid out to offer little moments of joy in an authentic Tuscan setting.
Indoors a vast living space is accompanied by six bedrooms and as many bathrooms. All flaunt the property owner’s taste for minimal and modern decor, but only in a way that makes space for its traditional architecture to shine.
Easy outings to Porto Ercole begin with quaint boat trips and end by sauntering around local shops, looking for the best prodotti tipici (local products): smoked meats, fresh cheeses and fruit so delicious they remind you of childhood holidays by the sea.
