HOTEL VILLA DOMIZIA is the perfect spot from which to explore Porto Santo Stefano, a popular seaport town in the heart of the Maremma region in southern Tuscany. Tucked into the side of Mount Argentario and overlooking the sea, the hotel is known for its Tuscan-style architecture, breathtaking views, gracious service, and exclusive amenities. The elegant rooms and suites are spacious, sunlit, and modern, with distinctive touches such as decorative tile in the bathrooms, comfortable seating areas, and scenic terraces and balconies. Nearly all rooms offer views galore, whether of the marina, the gardens, or the hotel’s private beach on the bay of Santa Liberata. The spot is ideal for staying put and soaking in the sun—the hotel’s private beach provides plenty of loungers and umbrellas as well as food and drink service—or for enjoying a variety of water sports, including snorkeling and diving in the cove off the beach.
Here, you can see the remains of ancient Roman baths that date back to 36 B.C. and which were enjoyed by locals and emperors alike. From here you are a short trip away from one of the most beautiful beaches in the Maremma, Giannella, made famous by the glitterati in the 1930s and ’40s and now a popular spot for families, children, and sailing enthusiasts. And, of course, there is Porto Santo Stefano itself, known for its lively bars, cafes, and people-watching. End your day with dinner, drinks, and spectacular views at the onsite gourmet restaurant, Gourmet con Gusto. Thanks to executive chef Donato La Torre’s skilled handling of local ingredients, you’ll experience some of the best regional and international cuisine, while maître d’ Giovanni Catricalà and sommelier Katia Giovinazzo advice on the best wines, many of them local, to accompany your meal.
