We’re right in the heart of Costa degli Etruschi, in Val di Cornia, a truly special place where the Tuscan hills roll gently down to the sea.
Our land is a corner of Tuscany that still has to be discovered by mass tourism: a treasure chest sprinkled with wonderful nature and bits of ancient history.
The micro-climate has warm summers, which are always breezy and never damp, and temperate winters without ice and snow, drier during the day and damper at night.
Gentle hills, the countryside crossed by the Strada del Vino, woods, shaded pine groves and wide beaches brushed by a crystal-clear sea: this is the picture that defines the historic villages of Castagneto Carducci, Bolgheri and the resorts of Marina di Castagneto and Donoratico.
There are many wineries between Castagneto Carducci and Suvereto along the wine route, and they can satisfy every taste: the spectacular Moretti cellars at Suvereto that were recently created by the famous architect Botta are counterbalanced by the simplicity of the Sassicaia cellars of the Marquis Incisa della Rocchetta in Bolgheri. Between the two extremes there’s a huge number of producers of wines famous in all the world that we’d be happy to introduce you to: the historic Grattamacco and the marvellous, multi-award winning wines from TUA RITA in Suvereto, but also young, small-scale producers that certainly deserve a visit and a tasting.
For children and young adults there’s the amusement park at Donoratico, the zoo at Cecina, the terrarium with turtles at Massa Marittima and two water parks at Cecina and Follonica.
You can go horse-riding on the beach, in the pine woods or on the hills; you can take bike or walking trips, deep in nature and surrounded by enchanted landscapes, suspended between the hills and the sea.
