"Beautiful place at the Italian coast." Porto Santo Stefano by breughel

Porto Santo Stefano Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 9 photos

This is a very beautiful place of the Italian coast, the most beautiful place of the peninsula of Argentario.
Attractive bay, coloured houses on a hill side, maritime walk, restaurants, flowery vegetation, some beautiful palm trees, and half a dozen luxurious yachts moored to the quay. A church at the top of the hill.
Some people say that it is better than Portofino because more authentically Italian!
Actually, I'm first to write on VT a page dedicated to this quite touristic town but still somewhat ignored by the international tourism. I discovered this place many years ago because I have relatives in the region.
I hope that my Italian family will not be upset with me if by writing this page I may attract more tourists and increase the crowds.
Therefore I strongly insist: dear VT member go to the Argentario only in off season, in the other periods leave the place to Italian tourists.

Très bel endroit de la côte italienne.

Voici un très bel endroit de la côte italienne, le plus bel endroit de la péninsule de l'Argentario.
Jolie baie, maisons colorées à flanc de colline, promenade maritime, restaurants, végétation fleurie, quelques beaux palmiers, une demi douzaine de luxueux yachts amarrés au quai. Une église au sommet de la colline.
Certains diront que c'est mieux que Portofino car plus authentiquement italien!
A preuve, je suis le premier à écrire sur VT une page consacrée à ce lieu pourtant éminemment touristique mais encore largement ignoré du tourisme international.
A vrai dire si je suis seul ici sur VT à décrire Porto Santo Stefano c'est parce j'ai de la famille dans la région. J'espère qu'elle ne m'en voudra pas de lancer les hordes sauvages du tourisme mondial à l'assaut de Porto Santo Stefano.
Mais j'insiste: cher membre VT n'allez sur l'Argentario qu'en hors saison, laissez la place aux Romains.

      Thank you for visiting these Italian coastal places mainly visited by Italians more specifically Romans.
      When Romans are fed up with tourists they take refuge on the Monte Argentario!

    Too bad you can't invite your friends to have an aperitif on deck of your kayak! But otherwise I agree that a kayak is a very good choice of a water vessel.

    What a lovely place this Porto Santo Stefano is. The Lungomare looks particularly nice.
