With one hotel your accommodation choices are limited but you will not forget a stay on this island located a short distance from Sardinia in Italy. Home to a semi-abandoned NATO naval base this is perhaps not many peoples instinctual choice for a holiday destination but once you see the remarkably clear water and the beautiful views you will wonder why more tourists do not come here.
The Valtur Resort is ideally situated close to the pier and has a private beach area which can get surprisingly busy. The rooms are simple yet elegant with more than enough amenities to satisfy, especially for those who are looking for a relaxing beach holiday. If you are interested in historic buildings then Santo Stefano has a remarkable horse-shoe shaped military structure from the 19th century which was previously a prison and is the favoured site of many day-tripping tourists.
The rocky form of the island is due to its volcanic history which allows for easy scrambling across the surfaces for bird spotting, trekking or bouldering. Santo Stefano has a few small pockets of traditional housing whose inhabitants are the only non-military personnel on the island as well as a beautiful old church which has been on the island since the 19th century.
