Cala Piazzoni, a peaceful, secluded six bedroom farmhouse accommodating 11 people, is set in six hectares of extensive lawns, gardens and Mediterranean maquis. It enjoys panoramic views of the Mediterranean with the island of Giannutri in the distance and of the romantic, wild and rugged coastline. Guests enjoy automatic membership of the nearby private swimming pool club.
An unobtrusive caretaker couple, that live out, ensure that guests’ needs are attended to by providing shopping and cooking services on request subject to availability.
I wanted to drop you a note to say what a wonderful time we had in Italy at the villa. The set up was conducive to a very relaxing time for all. The remoteness of the location was initially of concern but ultimately meant we enjoyed the property more than if it was closer to Santo Stefano, etc. We managed the drive down the dirt track to Porto Ercole and back one day, that was fun but happy to have only made that journey once in the family MPV ! Danilo and Antonella, etc. were great too and we managed to get by with our near non-existent Italian, thankfully.
Excellent villa: full of character, attention to detail and modern comforts with good maintenance support provided by Danilo / Antonella. I would have wanted few more beach towels and normal towels around as well as sun-loungers. Also think for next season the house could benefit from some re-painting on the outside as there were many places where the paint fell off. We would be interested in renting it again and as mentioned to you earlier I could see myself owning a property like this.

This charming property is located on the west coast of Monte Argentario but could almost be in the middle of the Chianti countryside with bougainvillaea growing up its walls and rock gardens planted with beautifully scented rosemary and lavender. An abundance of red geraniums in terracotta pots provide additional colour, while neat rows of cypress trees give welcome shade during the hot summer’s days and border the well-manicured lawns and the swimming pool.
The 14x6 metre swimming pool has a shallow paddling end, and has a large sunbathing terrace as well as a partly shaded area. Up some steps from the pool, there is a spacious covered loggia with a barbecue and table seating up to 12 people, which enjoys lovely views. There are very few other houses in this area of Argentario, so Cala Piazzoni provides the ideal location for those seeking absolute peace and tranquility in beautiful surroundings and the possibility of many wonderful coastal and mountainside walks nearby.
