Villa Pietrafocata is a holiday villa in the township of Porto Ercole. Porto Ercole lies in the peninsula of Monte Argentario, which is a municipality (commune) in the Province of Grosseto, in Tuscany, Italy. The Villa faces the spectacular Tuscan Sea, built in the middle of sand and rock beaches. Villa Pietrafocata is just ten minutes from the main township of Porto Ercole and one hour from Fiumicino, Rome airport.
Villa Pietrafocata with its old country charm, privacy, antique furniture and a breath-taking view of the sea and the coastline is an ideal retreat for tourists who want the best. Built high on a hill, the villa offers the guests a quiet and relaxing holiday. The villa is surrounded by the distinctive fragrance of Maremma. The guests can enjoy their dinner in full view of the seaside on the large terrace with a pergola.
Golfing, biking, boating and horse riding are the sports one can indulge in while staying at Villa Pietrafocata. There is a splendid golfing range near the Orbetello lagoon in the peninsula of Monte Argentario. An exhilarating bike ride through the pine forests between the sea and the lagoon is just what most visitors to the Villa look forward to - bicycles are available for rent at the entrance of the Feniglia beach. There are numerous small beaches in the peninsula waiting to be discovered by the adventurous tourists - boats can be rented at Porto Ercole. Horse-riding is an added attraction that is organized in the Maremma countryside.
The countryside is dominated by the mighty fortress Aldobrandesca, a fortification built on several occasions between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance around existing structures. A place worth seeing is the Giardino Corsini, in which there are many rare tropical and subtropical botanicals.
The fortresses of La Rocca, Filippo, Santa Carolina and Stella dominate the hillside above the perfect little natural harbour. The profusion of these fortifications takes one by surprise but adds another interesting angle to this incredibly picturesque little port.
Villa Pietrafocatais centrally located for art visits and touring: Siena, Tarquinia, San Gimignano and other small towns and historic sites from Italy's Etruscan, Roman and Renaissance past, are only a stone 's throw away.
Porto Ercole has a wonderful buzz during the summer season when the long seaside esplanade is filled with tourists strolling by the shops, cafes and restaurants next to the boats anchored in the harbour. This pretty seaside resort is one of the most famous in Tuscany.
