About The Owner

I am a Psychologist and psychoterapist I live and work in Florence. I have been helping for several years our dear and "old" friend Elisetta in renting her house. It is lovely very especial place with a huge private space on the coast that is a wonderful natural space for relaxing and enjoying a special holiday in Toscana's nature.

The Owner purchased this house in 1970

Why The Owner chose Cala Piccola

It is lovely very especial place on the coast. Located in the heart of nature. Elisetta loves this place, where her three childreen spent their summers in the childhood and adolescence years. She loves her house and makes it confortable for her guests.

What makes this house unique

Perfect for a vacation relaxing by the sea, or for exploring the coast and its beautiful small cities and ports. Few houses offer nowtoday a so original location between the green of the macchia mediterranea and the blue of the sea

Guestbook comments from the owner

Heike und Wolfgand- Deutschland- We enjoyed very much our stay at Marco’s and Paola’s little “villa”, as the place is so private and just at the sea with unexpected views on the blue and transparent sea, the two huge and beautiful terraces with pleasant shade from the trees are perfect for relaxing and alternative to staying at the sea. The private beach is exclusive and elegant. We also went to the Giannella and Feniglia Beach, both very for long walks right at the waters. Inside the apartment is very original and cared in little details that makes everything nice and comfortable. Extremaly clean. Their kitchen is well equipped and offers enough space to cook. Wonderful outside-dinner in the evening, where the BBQ accomplished, integrated our passion for cooking! We had a great time exploring Monte Argentario, Giannutri and Giglio Isles (From Porto Santo Stefano in the morning), visiting Rome and Siena and going to the Saturnia-thermal baths. We`ll be back next year

René and Mary (France) We spent one week at Nido, in Monte Argentario, and we just enjoyed every minute out there. What a lovely view and private quite location. We can warmly recommend Marco’s nice house for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Thank you a lot!

2 wonderful weeks in this cosy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently rented Marco’s property for our summer vacation and could not have been more pleased with it! We had a really wonderful stay in Cala Piccola at Nido! Marco is a warm and friendly host; everything you could need is provided for you. The apartment looks exactly as on the pictures (even better than it looks on line) and offered wonderful views of the sea and the quiet location made also for a beautiful relaxing holiday in the middle of stunning nature. It was so nice to wake up each day and to have have breakfast on the terrace! The terrace was a fantastic area where we also had a lot of other unforgettable meals and drinks! We went canoeing and snorkeling. We visited Rome (2 hour train ride from Orbetello station, also convenient for a day outing), Pitigliano, Saturnia (hot springs), Sovana and Siena. Having travelled in Italy a fair bit, I can say that this is a truly special place. We would love to come back again. Thank you, thank you, thank you! George and Michaela.

A truly wonderful stay, peace, quiet & relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Dear Marco, just wanted to thank you so much for our lovely stay in your beautiful house, Nido.

We both enjoyed a most relaxing stay. Nido is amazing, very beautiful just as mentioned in the advert online and has everything you could possibly need. Couldn't believe the breath-breaking views over the sea especially the full view of the sunset. Unforgettable the large outside terraces! The best place to have a a home cooked meal. Just fantastic! We both enjoyed swimming and relaxing. We have been to Tuscany several times but it was our first time to Argentario. We loved it! Thank you again it was so quiet and relaxing we didn't want to leave and we look forward to coming again. Thank you for this wonderful week in your house,

Deborah R.

Lovely days

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and well-kept house, very close to the sea. It is has everything you need. Situated in a private bay, Cala Piccola –Little Bay- Nido has two lovely terraces that offer a breathtaking view. Marco, who is very helpful, welcomed us and made us feel at home. We mostly cooked ourselves: in Porto Santo Stefano (5-10 min drive) there is a wonderful fish market; anyway we enjoyed also some lovely dinners at the beach restaurant. Unbelievable sunsets! Very important for my job: wifi worked very smoothly.Thank you Paola, thank you Marco! We would have loved to stay longer!

tranquillity, nature and beauty.

My husband and I spent 12 nights here. This was our first trip to Argenatrio and we were not sure what to expect. This place far exceeded my expectations. The two terraces were the ideal area to relax, eat and stay. We spent many hours on the terrace and loved the beautiful view. It was a experience to live in a house builded in a cliff and so close to the water. The house is within the Cala Piccola private residence. Great sea view, nicely decorated and well stocked with anything you might need. The main living/kithchen area in the gazebo is large, bright and well equipped. The bedroom not expecially large but nice, tasteful and adaguate. Everything was so comfortable, I actually can''t imagine anyone staying here and not loving it. Marco's house offers all the comfort you need, the facilities are contemporary and very tasteful. Bathrooms and all other amenities (kitchen, BBQ and so on) function perfectly.We really enjoyed our time in Marco's home in Cala Piccola. It's well equipped (the only thing one could miss is a oven), nicely furnished and the location on the cliffs is just stunning. The reality is even better than the pictures. We spent a lot of time on the two magnificient terraces and enjoyed watching the Argentario sea with its Archipelagus islands. Marco and Paola are very nice, helpful and even though they do not live there but in Rome, they actually did all the imaginable to make our holiday great! We went by their advice to some very good restaurants, we organized trips to the hot springs of Saturnia, to Pitigliano, and to Capalbio for sunsets. Don't forget the restaurant Lo Sfizio in Porto Santo Stefano. I would say it was an unforgettable holidays in a really special setting. We warmly recommend it to everybody, who loves tranquillity, nature and beauty.
