Surroundings

All the most famous art cities of Tuscany can be easily reached from our B&B.
Florence, the capital city of Tuscany, is only 1.40 hour drive from us, just like Siena and Arezzo, two wonderfully characteristic Tuscan cities with a stunning historical centre, while Pisa and Livorno (Leghorn) are much closer (30-40 minutes drive).
If you prefer to visit less crowded places, you can easily reach Volterra and San Giminiano, extraordinarily picturesque medieval villages, 30 minutes drive from us.
Casale Marittimo and Bolgheri, 15 minutes drive, belong to a typical area known worldwide for the production of wine, perfect for those interested in wine tasting tours in prestigious wine cellars.

If you want to enjoy a day on the beach, you can easily reach Vada, a small village in the municipality of Rosignano Marittimo, famous for its public and private wide beaches. The “White Beaches” of this area are famous for their resemblance to a typical Caribbean beach.

A few kilometres past Vada, you can find Castiglioncello, once known as “Tyrrhenian Pearl” and famous sea resort for VIPs and notorious Roman actors such as Marcello Mastroianni and Alberto Sordi. This area is characterized by rocky beaches, famous for their crystal clear waters and wonderful sea bottoms. Here, you can also find some sandy beaches, for example the beautiful Quercetano Bay, with the possibility of hiring beach umbrellas and loungers or enjoying local food.

Oltre a Vada e Castiglioncello, altra zona litoranea molto bella, curata e facilmente raggiungibile in direzione sud dove è possibile anche fare anche un po’ di shopping, è Cecina Marina, distante circa 15 minuti dalla nostra struttura. Marina di Cecina ha ampie spiagge e pinete in cui è possibile fare anche delle splendide e benifiche passeggiate, oppure lungo i suoi viali pedonali per rimanere poi a mangiare qualche specialità nei ristoranti con i tavoli praticamente a ridosso della battigia.

If you like to enjoy the beach, visit a town and do some shopping, you may reach Marina di Cecina, a very cute village only 15 minutes drive from us, with wide beaches and pine forests as well as a relaxing pedestrian centre rich in little shops and very good restaurants serving all Tuscan specialities.

Next to the cities and villages mentioned before, you can visit many other long beaches near Bibbona and San Vincenzo, or, in direction Livorno, you can find some beautiful and not so crowded bays near Quercianella.

In our reception area you will find all kinds of leaflets and brochures for any kind of excursion you may like, and for any kind of typically Tuscan restaurant near us, characteristic or rustic, in the countryside or on the beach.
Every day we will update all the events in the area and in the cities nearby, like for example typical town fairs and feasts as well as night shows.
