It is a large and hilly promontory in southern Tuscany. The area has a nature reserve and some relatively unspoilt beaches. There are two pretty harbour/resort towns at Monte Argentario which make good holiday bases: Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole.

We had a wonderful stay at Mela. The house is clean, the kitchen well equipped and the grounds and pool very well maintained. Our late arrival was no issue at all and we received great tips on sights to explore in the vicinity.
We did find the matrasses very hard unfortunately and would recommend the owner to provide pool towels and some kitchen basics such as salt, pepper, sugar, dish soap & cloth etc., but overall we would definitely recommend Mela!
