Megan Todd & Nazzareno Todini purchased this Apartment in 2016
Why Megan Todd & Nazzareno Todini chose Porto Santo Stefano
We bought this property in 2016 after having rented it ourselves since 2009. When it came up for sale, we eagerly invested! We love the apartment and its amazing view of the Tuscan seaside. It is spacious, airy, bright and comfortable for a family or a group. Every room has a sea view and a cooling breeze. Porto Santo Stefano is a delightful seaside town and the nearby villages of Porto Ercole and Orbetello are lovely as well.
What makes this Apartment unique
We enjoy walking down the stairs from the apartment to the beach at Il Moletto and eating lunch in the old port area. The nearby beaches of Feniglia and Gianella are equally beautiful - one for unspoiled nature, one for the convenience of parking, beach umbrellas and capuccino on the sand! When we have had enough beach, we head inland to enjoy the rolling hills of Tuscany and the local wines. There is truly something for everyone in Porto Santo Stefano!

Magical views in ideal location at the heart of a gorgeous Italian seaside paradise
This apartment is a dream. Spectacular views from multiple terraces, both bedrooms and one of the two bathrooms. Very well equipped kitchen and house with beach wraps and chairs and boogie boards - all sorts of glasses, plates, containers, etc. The walk to the nearest swimming hole is down a stone staircase and is super close - just not ideal if you have any mobility issues. we used our car only twice the whole stay and there was convenient parking on the property. Most importantly the owners were highly attentive and in touch regularly, ready to respond to any issues or offer advice for restaurants, boat rentals, etc. Overall a fabulous stay in a highly-recommended apartment.
Our stay of two and a half weeks started with a lovely welcome and tour of the apartment by the owners, Megan and Nazzareno. We felt immediately comfortable in the very spacious and well appointed apartment. The views from the balconies were spectacular, and it was so interesting watching all the activity in the port... the ferries coming and going, the fishing boats coming into port with the gulls following behind and the gorgeous yachts and sailboats. We have stayed in condos, apartments and villas for many years, but have never stayed in one that felt so much like a home. We cook a lot of meals and found the variety of cooking apparatus was the best ever. The apartment lacked nothing... even had a couple bottles of very nice wine as a welcome gift. This was our first trip to Italy, but it definitely won’t be our last, and finding this wonderful apartment has a lot to do with that decision. We’re already talking about booking it again for next year.

A fantastic place to enjoy Porto Santo Stefano from.
Views to die for from the big balconies, so well appointed, very spacious and comfortable. Incredible pizzas, a supermarket and little bar all 3 mins away. The town with all good restaurants, market and a great promenade only exactly 10 mins walk back up the road if you do not want stairs.
Perfect Place to stay at Porto Santo Stefano
We have been a week with our 6 year old twins in the appartment and enjoyed the stay very much.
For a family of four the place is more than large and I guess also with 6 people it would feel spacious.
While from the outside it might not be the most beautiful place once you are inside and enjoy the beautiful views all around its really great.
I guess the storage building the appartment is in was originally meant to be used rather not for vacation purpose but for living.
We had a very hot week with 35 plus degrees but always felt extremely comfortable with the fresh sea breeze at that location passing through.
For us it really felt like the perfect place to be in the village being high enough to have the beautiful gulf and city view and fresh breeze and low enough to easily walk to shops, harbour and sea.
What adds up to it is that the appartment is very well equipped and the owners and their family are extremely nice and responsive.
I hope very much that I will have the opportunity to go again in the future.
Thank you for your review! We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay in Porto Santo Stefano. It was our pleasure to host you and your family and we look forward to having you back again in the future! Grazie mille! - Megan & Nazzareno
It is like the home you always wish you had! Fabulous location, superbly equipped & spotless
We spent 7 days here & wish it was longer. The property is very spacious & very well maintained. The panoramic views from all sides were an outstanding feature of the apartment. The location was fantastic in the heart of the port - very easy to explore the town on foot. The kitchen was very well equipped & lots of nice homely touches. Megan & Tod were perfect hosts & provided a wealth of information, both verbally & with local guides to the area.we really appreciated our welcome drinks on arrival. Porto Santo Stefano was an excellent base for exploring the Tuscan countryside & local beaches. We certainly hope we have the pleasure to revisit in the future.
Dear Anne and family,
Thank you for your review! You were perfect guests who not only enjoyed the house but really took advantage of all the area has to offer: beaches, Tuscan countryside, local restaurants, (the view from the terrace...) We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll be back (for two weeks next time, right?!). Until next time, Megan & Nazzareno
Fantastic view, good location
Its a very nice location with a view to die for!! The apartment is well planned with two separate bedroom's. Each bedroom with a complete and well equipped bathroom. The kitchen, as well as the other areas of the apartment was complete and functional, our only minor problem was that the dish washer did not clean as good as it should. We stayed four adult for one week and we all enjoyed the stay. We choose to eat out every day and that gave us a 15 minutes healthy promenade down to town. In conclusion we can certainly recommend the apartment for guest that are looking for a good stay in the charming Porto S. Stefano.
Thanks for your review, Ulf! It was our pleasure to host you in Porto Santo Stefano. Great to hear that you enjoyed the many local restaurants during your stay. Sorry to hear you had issues with the dishwasher - we will make sure that doesn't happen in future. Looking forward to hosting you again should your travels bring you back to Tuscany! Thanks again, Megan & Nazzareno
