This post is also available in: Italian

Poggio Dadà stands on the promontory of Argentario, in the heart of the Tuscan Archipelago in a dominant position over Cala Moresca.

The villa, located along the panoramic road of Porto Santo Stefano overlooking the sea, has been recently built according to an accurate project based on principles of eco-compatibility and absolute respect for the landscape and the natural characteristics of the area.

The large terraced park literally encompasses the villa in a continuum of light, sun, hanging gardens and breathtaking views of the islands of Giglio and Argentarola and on clear days you can also get a glimpse of the island of Montecristo and of Corsica.

Location

Along the meandering panoramic road which reveals wonderful horizons and views, past the grandeur of Cala Grande, we come to the scenario of Cala Moresca facing the little island of Argentarola lying in a paradisiacal crystalline sea, and where the tower of the same name acts as a division between the Cala del Gesso and the Parco dell’Argentarola.

On the horizon is the island of Giglio with its incredible sunsets. This is an area that is part of the Cetacean Sanctuary established in 1991 as a protected natural marine area of international interest.

The scent of the sea, the play of waves followed by dolphins, the majestic flights of gulls, flamingos, cormorants, coots, herons and so much green tranquillity: this is the world of the Costa d’Argento with the lagoon of Orbetello and the promontory of Argentario in the Grosseto Maremma.

Without a doubt, it is another world set in an area of geographical design that has no equal in Italy, where the components of the landscape encounter history and develop a very delicate ecosystem between human and natural dynamics.
