Our home

This stunning villa is just METERS away from Cristal clear sea. The house is located on a secluded and private beautiful rocky bay called "Le Cannelle". Staying here you will really experience what Mediterranean sea is and you can be the very first one to swim in the sea in the morning, or the very last one to enjoy the wonderful colors of the sunset.
This seafront "pied dans l'eau" house is located inside a luxurious complex called "La Cornovaglia". The view overlooks the sea 180° and is in front of the Islands of Giglio and of Giannutri, which you can admire from all corners. We are surrounded by a wonderful, wild nature and a transparent turquoise clear sea.
The villa is in rustic traditional style and full of charm. The private garden is large and is divided into two main areas: green grass private lawn where kids can play safely and a lower Mediterranean garden with wonderful wild native trees where you can relax in the shade or paint all day without being disturbed! In the garden you will find hammock under the trees and wonderful daybeds here and there.
There is a private path way with steps that take you down to the rocky sea in 5 minute walk.
You will be welcomed into a double living room with an open space kitchen. There are two separate dining areas, one inside for colder evenings and, the other outside under the trees (this is where we normally eat). The kitchen is fully equipped with a five burner gas stove, electric oven, fridge and freezer, dishwasher, boiler...
The bedrooms: the master bedroom with a double bed and a stunning view + large bathroom with shower (see image master bedroom) The master bedrooms looks into the main living area. The second bedroom has a large double bed and private closet area. The third bedroom has a single bed that can easily be made into double according to the requirements. These two rooms share a large bathroom with shower. The forth bedroom is small with a single bed but it has its own bathroom with shower. There is also another sleeping area perfect fpr kids with twin beds in the TV room (see image of TV room).

There is air conditioning in all the living area. If you leave the doors open aircondition refreshes all rooms.

The living room is spacious, extremely comfortable with beautiful sofas and stunning view into the garden and sea.
This place is wonderful also out-season, when you can enjoy the infinite peace and silence of the nature.
This is just the ideal place to spend a real summer Mediterranean holiday, as there are no cars, no dangers, just the sun, the sea and silence.

Do you wish to swim in a beautiful swimming pool by the sea? If so then you can just walk down to the beautiful, private and huge swimming pool of the Cannelle private compound. There is a weekly fee to be paid that is quite expensive. Price changes according to the period. I can inform you if you are interested.

Feniglia sand beach is absolutely marvelous, only 11 km by car, perfect for children, it's only knee deep for the first 20 meters. 6 km pine forest where you can rent a bike and breath this air.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

It’s an easy drive out of Rome onto the “Aurelia”, the road that heads up the coast following the route of the old Roman road. Very quickly you are out of an urban environment and bowling through productive-looking vegetable growing areas, bordered by roadside verges vibrant with the colour of wildflowers. Turning off the main route after about an hour and a half’s drive, you reach the promontory of Monte Argentario. On the map it looks almost like an island, linked to the mainland by three tendrils. In fact it was an ancient island which became joined to the coastline by two strips of accumulated sand enclosing a stretch of the Tyrrhenian Sea that is now the Orbetello lagoon, an area of intense ecological diversity administered by the World Wildlife Fund. The central strip of the three is partly man-made and connects Argentario to the town of Orbetello, itself on a narrow promontory and now surrounded on three sides by its lagoon.

In the sixteenth century the Spanish gained control of the area from the Republic of Siena and made Orbetello the capital of their “Stato dei Presidi”(the name for their sphere of influence in this part of Italy). One enters the town from the Aurelia through an impressive Hispanic-baroque gateway, built by the Spanish as part of a massive burst of fortification as they strove to consolidate their trading position in the Mediterranean.

On Monte Argentario itself and on up the coast there are constant reminders of more belligerent times, particularly the series of “Castelle” or look-out towers that stud the coastline. At Porto Ercole, one of the two main towns on Argentario, the fortresses of La Rocca, Filippo, Santa Carolina and Stella dominate the hillsides above the perfect little natural harbour. Now that Porto Ercole is a place more associated with pleasure, good food, boats and relaxation the profusion of these fortifications rather takes one by surprise but adds another interesting angle to this incredibly picturesque little port.

The other town on Argentario is Santo Stefano, a lively bustling port where you can catch the ferry to the neighbouring islands of Giglio and Giannutri.

Although there has been a fishing village here for centuries much of the town was bombed during the war and so had to be reconstructed. Cleverly they used a lot of the old stone for rebuilding which makes its newness far less obvious.

Along the front there is an excellent fish market and a profusion of restaurants, as well as the marina, where you can admire the beautiful yachts and luxurious gin-palaces. It is the perfect place for a “passegiata” the Italian word for taking a stroll while watching the world go by.

Monte ArgentarioArgentario is a remarkably unspoilt coastal haven, particularly considering its proximity to Rome. Since the 1970s there have been strict planning laws in place to preserve the natural beauty of the area. Consequently, if you drive round the west side of the promontory from one town to the other you find yourself on narrow roads wiggling along the coast surrounded by Mediterranean scrub; thyme, myrtle, rock roses, lavender, wild olive and fig. The land rises steeply above the road and falls away precipitously below it to the sea. It is an exhilarating and breathtaking journey, most spectacular at sunset when the whole sky seems to glow red, though not one to be undertaken in the dark by faint-hearted drivers.

One of the best ways to enjoy Monte Argentario is to explore by boat the wealth of little coves around the coast which are inaccessible by road. There are numerous places in Porte Ecole or Santo Stefano that will hire you boats of all shapes and sizes. Alternatively you can take the ferry to the islands from Santo Stefano which gives you a fantastic view of the coastline of Argentario. The ferry’s first port of call is Giglio Porto, the pretty fishing village on the largest island of Giglio. It’s a beautiful place to wander round, with a castle at the top of the village to explore and lots of good restaurants. In the nearby cove Cala del Saraceno stand the ruins of a Roman villa. Giannutri, the smaller of the two islands, has no cars and so is a place to walk and take a picnic. It is well-known for its caves , particularly the Cala Dei Grottoni at the southern tip of the island and for the fine ruins of the Roman Domizi Enorbarbi villa with remains of mosaics, paved paths and columns.

Monte ArgentarioFrom Monte Argentario you have access to such a wide range of activities beaches and boats, walking and wildlife, culture and wonderful regional cooking.
