Porto Santo Stefano villa description

Villa Lividonia was designed to accommodate both indoor and outdoor life. Built in natural stone, it is surrounded by beautiful gardens and offers unforgettable views over the sparkling blue Mediterranean and Tuscan archipelago.
With five comfortably furnished bedrooms, four bathrooms, Villa Lividonia invites its guests to sit back and enjoy their stay. Whether you have lunch under the pergola after a refreshing dip in the swimming pool or enjoy a relaxing drink watching the sunset after a day spent exploring the Maremma countryside, we feel Villa Lividonia will not only be like a second home for you, but also a splendid setting in which to enjoy your summer holiday.

Argentario and Porto Santo Stefano
The peninsula of Argentario is connected to the mainland by three strips of land one of which is man made and the other two are natural sand. The beautiful lagoon of Orbetello lies between them protecting an infinite variety of birds. There are two small towns on the peninsula, Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole. You reach Villa Lividonia about 2km along the Via Panoramica. The town provides every necessity to make your holiday a success: all kinds of shops, supermarkets, hairdressers, beauty salons, etc. Between Porto Ercole and P.S:Stefano there is a brand new Spa, an eighteen hole golf course and a Polo field. Should you wish to vary your swimming you can choose to go to the public beaches of the Feniglia or the Giannella, the two sandy strips that connect Argentario to the mainland.

Porto Ercole
Monday is market day in Porto Ercole, the summer resort on the East coast of Argentario. A stroll through the market or a walk up to one of the Spanish fortifications that guard the small harbour is a pleasant way of spending a morning before going for a swim on the Feniglia Beach. There you can also hire bicycles and ride deep into the umbrella pine tree forest and, with a picnic, choose your own private bit of sandy beech.
In Porto Ercole you will find pretty little boutiques full of local colour and shops with the latest fashions, supermarkets and beauty salons and a warm hearted welcome from its inhabitants. To the night birds it offers any number of good bars and night clubs along its waterfront and by the yacht Marina.

The Island of Giannutri and Giglio
There are daily ferries going to these two islands of the Tuscan archipelago. Giglio, the larger one of the two, has an enchanting miniature harbour surrounded by candy coloured houses. From there you can take a bus or a taxi to go to Giglio Castello, the village built at the very top of the island, where you can have lunch washed down with the famous Giglio wine.
To the more energetic we advise a return to the harbour on foot: a lovely walk with magnificent vistas of the coast.

                                    I have travelled all over Italy on many occasions. We are of Italian heritage, so our expectations are set very high. The Villa and the views were breathtaking. The accommodation was perfect for adults our 4 young boys. The kitchen was surprisingly well stocked, with spices and oil when we arrived. I love to cook and the kitchen had all the cooking utensils you need. We had dinner at some lovely local restaurants on the mountain, you don't even have to go down to the local town but its worth the drive or walk. The large supermarket, down in the town is well stocked and there is a local fish market , which was a little expensive but was super fresh. The local produce of the area was incredible, which made cooking all the more better. The local ricotta was to die for, i would have it every morning. We took a boat trip, which was spectacular, the Captain was a great guy, who began cooking our Marinara sauce the second we boarded the boat at the local mariana, the lunch that he gave us was by far the best meal I had the whole time i was in Italy, he actually had a local fishing trawler pull up alongside and the crew tossed fresh octopus over to us, which he incorporated into the sauce. It was 500 Euros for 9hrs, for 8 persons. We would have paid 800. The beach , which was a 15 min drive , was also very enjoyable , the kids had a great time and the Lido was great for lunch. The cliffs in front of the Villa were a little precarious for the children but good swimmers would have a ball. The local town of Porto Stefano was beautiful and make sure you try every ice cream shop you can , its worth it. The group of shops just below the villa are really good, if you run out of anything, there is a little mini market and across from there is a bar, where you can buy your morning croissants and coffee ,the guy in there is super helpful, he helped me find the boat. There is a menu in the house of local attractions and services , which Alex needs to update. All in all, it was a perfect week spent in one of the most beautiful places ion the world. We would return and we will recommend the house to others. Grazie

                                    We enjoyed staying at Lividonia. If one loves Italy and Toscany then this is probably the place to be. We've been visiting around and discovered Sienna and Firenze and a lot of those beautiful villages that Toscany hosts. Monte Argentario is rather isolated - and driving around is not that easy as roads are rather narrow and parking quite limited. We miss a bit to have an easier access to the sea but of course the swimming pool is just staying there and we didn't miss swimming. Also the access to the sea close to the villa allows diving from rocks in a wonderful sea. The villa itself is absolutely great. We've appreciated particularly the spirit that stays with it. It is not only a "villa for rent", it is a real and old family villa that is offered to you the time of your stay. It contained all that we needed. Located on the heights of Porto Santo Stefano, the villa receives the air of the sea and despite a very warm summer sun, we had a very nice stay from that stand point. The villa is nested in the vegetation that protects it from the direct sun rays. The outside living-room, that includes a long table, has an outstanding Virginia creeper that shadows it all day and has allowed us to have also outstanding sunset on the sea and Elba island. Marvelous. A more recent villa would certainly have more sophistication (climate control) but villa Lividonia has really a unique spirit. The listing description was accurate and all the property clean and well arranged, maintained. Alex, the owner, has provided us all recommendations that we required to get to the best restaurants (useful if you don't speak Italian) and helped making reservations at different activities (renting boats, ...). As I wrote above, it is required to go by car for activities outside the villa. But staying at the villa is of course very nice. Porto Santo Stefano is 10mn drive from the villa and it will offer all you need for daily shopping (grocery store, etc.). It is possible to walk to the haven also, but it takes 20mn on the way forth, 30mn back (it climbs a lot). We miss our vacations at Lividonia, hope we can return next year as there is a lot to discover and a 2 weeks stay wasn't enough. Would the budget allow it ... A great thanks to Alex.

                                    Villa Lividonia is indeed a very special place I truly feel to recommend. The breathtaking views of the Med, the wonderful coulors of the ever blossoming garden, the warm and familiar county house stile interiors, have given my friends and I the opportunity to properly chill out and catch up together. We have also ventured in the beautiful and still unspoiled surrounding that the south of Tuscany can offer. Altogether a remarkable experience I’m looking forward to repeat very soon

                                    This house was better than in the pictures. Beautiful gardens, lawn, pool with view of the sea and great poolside bar. House is tastefully decorated, cozy and chic - the owner provided restaurant recommendations in the nearby port towns but we loved the house so much we bought fresh fish at the markets and cooked outdoors most nights. Rented a boat in Santo Stefano for a day on the sea, weather is beautiful and the place is very relaxing. The whole coast is gorgeous and close to Rome. A real gem and great vacation!
