Monte Argentario means “the silver mountain” a promontory that emerges from the Tuscan coast line with a beautiful coastline of rocky outcrops, small bays with deep blue water and three charming fishing villages. Spini Bianchi is set on its own in total privacy on the most remote point, enjoying incredibly beautiful views of the coast line and facing the island of Giglio. The owners wanted something earthy, so they have used a lot of recovered drift wood and have created something really special, with a lot of attention for detail and comfort as a large shaded area where one lives, enjoying the breeze and incredible views. There are four bedrooms, two in the main part of the building, two below the sun terrace with ensuite bathrooms. There private infinity-edge swimming pool is set two terraces below the old farmhouse and a recently installed astro turf tennis court further down the hillside cut into the side of the cliff in a stunning location. Walk past the tennis court following the private road and it leads you down to the water, where the owners have added a platform for sun bathing and swimming. The charming fishing village of Santo Stefano is 20 mins away with a wide selection of shops and restaurants with a beautiful white beach, La Gianella nearby.
