Overview

Tucked into a hillside beneath dramatic cliffs, La Trappola is a pretty pink cottage with stunning views over the Mediterranean Sea and Monte Argentario's coastline. Crisp white walls, whitewashed beams and terracotta floors set the tone for the single storey building, furnished with comfortable contemporary furniture and artisanal work. The focus here, however, is on the beautiful garden, an expanse of irrigated lawns studded with palms and ancient olive trees that reaches to the edge of a steep cliff with a small beach and rocky cove below. Across the garden, a swimming pool has been built into the side of the cliff and edged with a wooden sundeck. Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole, both within a short drive of the property, offer wonderful waterside restaurants where you can watch the sun set while feasting on freshly caught fish and superb Tuscan wines.

Clients reviews

We were supposed to be a 4some but it turned up being just me and my wife at La Trappola. We arrived here from busy jobs - 4 days in Rome and 4 in Venice - so the change in pace was very welcome. We loved the views the place, the stars, the pool and cooking, drinking nice wine and spending time together. So thanks to Roberto and Suranjit for looking after us.

Wonderful property! We very much enjoyed our week of relaxing. The kitchen is well appointed and we enjoyed cooking family style meals for breakfast and dinner almost daily. The Simply supermarket near the roundabout in Porto Santo Stefano is the best on the island. The pool is fantastic; we enjoyed laying around daily as well as doing laps. Suranjit cleaned the pool daily, which was really helpful. The walk down to the private beach is best done in the morning when the water is calm. The walk up back is a great workout as well. Being in the sea was amazing; definitely book a boat early if you want to get out on the water. You can book in both Porto Ercole and Porto Santo Stefano. Thanks for the great week it was lovely to relax to the sounds of the boats passing by, the crickets.

We truly enjoyed our week. As do previous guests, we warmly recommend to ask Suranjit that he prepares at least one dinner. Like others we loved the views, beach also wonderful although difficult to reach. Invested in dinner at Il Pelicano; money well spent.

Just such a beautiful relaxing place! We adored the view! We enjoyed Suranjit's curry, what a feast. This is a must…we enjoyed Il Moletto in Porto Santo Stefano for seafood. Make sure the sea is calm before you you attempt the beach. would love to return.

We had the most fabulous stay at La Trappola, what a stunning villa and surroundings. The garden is frankly blissful the photos can not do it justice, without a doubt the highlight is the Omni-present Suanjit. He could simply not do enough for us…waiting on our every need. one evening he cooked, I shall never forget the food he served, marvellous. All in all a beautiful stay and just a wonderful way to close our honeymoon.

Secluded setting and stunning views over the sea. Very attractive gardens and nice outdoor seating area for al fresco dining, etc. It was a shame we could not stay longer.

From the first moment I stepped onto the property I knew it was going to be a week I would never forget. We have loved everyday and just wished the week could have gone on longer. This place has restored my energy and we hope to return again some day.

Spent the last week of our three week honeymoon here. Had a very chilled, relaxed time, with beautiful weather. We didn't do a lot apart from relaxing by the pool and enjoying the views.

A truly magical place. The villa was very comfortable and was perfect for our needs, close enough to the port where the bars and restaurants were run by very friendly staff. The scenary was stunning; to sit by the pool overlooking the sea was so relaxing. A perfect holiday, and we cannot wait to return.
