If you are interested in the Tuscan beaches there is are several different types to choose from. The beaches close to the house are more rocky, cliffs and small sandy bays perfect for snorkelling with crystal clear water. Driving the 4 km back to San Stefano you have large sandy beaches. I can recommend the 6 km long dune beach of Feniglia on the south side or Gianella on the north side.

A small road all paved but with some stairs lead down to the house. The location is absolute quiet.

Porto Santo Stefano is an ancient fishermen’s village that has become very very famous over the last 50 years. Its the most elegant part of the entire Tuscan coast, maybe of all Italy.

There is a large varsity of restaurants, shops and boutiques that will fit nearly every style and budget. Its natural beauty is one of a kind.
