La Contessa a striking, stone-built villa sleeping up to 16, can be found nestled amongst a myriad of Olive trees in the hills directly above Porto Ercole. With some of the most spectacular sea views towards the Cala Galera and or the exquisite sandy bay of La Feniglia, it is no wonder that this property is so in demand/ popular with larger groups. The Villa is surrounded by an enveloping olive grove and garden and more recently boasts a simply stunning swimming pool on a lower terrace just below the house.

The location of La Contessa, perched in the hills above Porto Ercole, is certainly one of the most coveted and exclusive on the peninsula, being within easy driving distance of the sophisticated shops and stylish restaurants of the port. It is also worth mentioning that the property is a stone throw away from the modern marina Cala Galera and undoubtedly the best sandy beach on the peninsula – La Feniglia. And yet the villa is totally private and secluded, enjoying spectacular sea views and cooling sea breezes, even in the height of the summer.

It is the perfect choice for an extended family party and/or a group of friends where life on Argentario can be experienced to the full – a typical day would consist of a leisurely breakfast, sunbathing and reading by the pool, taking a boat out from around noon for the rest of the day, a cocktail in the King’s Bar in the evening, while watching the “Passegiata”, before returning to the house for dinner in the evening.
