Torre di Cala Piccola
The Argentario Peninsula of Tuscany is one of the Italy’s best-hidden secrets. Almost intact (by an ingenious law) with dramatic bluffs, crystal clear azure seas, isolated tiny beaches, miniature vineyards and lemon groves clinging to the cliffs, amazing views, and some of the best and freshest seafood in the world, it is a romantic’s dream. At the bottom of a long winding road is a small hotel clinging to the hillside: pines, long views, the sea below in a rocky cove, and sunsets over the island of Giglio and Monte Cristo to take your breath away. The hotel is unpretentious but the location, the pool, and the walks are stunning. And in the nearby genuine fishing town of Porto Santo Stefano are two amazing (and acceptably-priced) restaurants, La Bussola, and a bit further Osteria dei Nobili Santi. Enjoy.
