My family and I have had enjoyed seven wonderful summers in Argentario renting villas through Isola Rossa. Our experience of six years at Villa Le Cime was second to none. The Villa is perched above Porto Ercole and has beautiful views out to sea. Sitting on the large spacious terrace next to the verdant garden and swimming pool, enjoying an Aperol spritz with delicious canapés prepared by the villa’s wonderful chef Anna, is one of the highlights of my year.  


The Villa itself is very spacious and beautifully designed. The gourmet meals prepared by Anna are enjoyed at a beautiful covered outdoor table, which is decorated differently every evening. Cooling off in the swimming pool after a day at sea is very special, as pools are hard to find in this region. Whilst getting to know the area, Carolina, very kindly offered to show me all the highlights of Argentario. As a family we are now in love with this slice of paradise.

Villa Mimose is one of the hidden treasures of Argentario – its large stylish rooms are so comfortable, the pool area is the best we have ever seen, and the staff are completely charming and efficient. Delicious food and our every whim catered for. A most marvellous experience. Thank you.

Dear Carolina, siamo sull aereo di ritorno. È stata una vacanza perfetta come poche. La location è stata una componente importante. Le volevo dire che la villa è veramente splendida, tutto ha funzionato benissimo. Il personale con Lisa e team sono stati attenti e bravissimi. Tra l’altro Lisa cucina benissimo. Non siamo usciti a cena una volta e non ci siamo pentiti. E, last but not least, la sua gentilezza e attenzione ad ogni dettaglio hanno contribuito in maniera fondamentale. Personalmente, io sono esigente quando vado in vacanza in posti “impegnativi” e questa esperienza e’ stata positiva al 100%. Grazie di tutto e speriamo sia l’inizio di una serie di bellissime vacanze. A presto.
