We have 2 villette situated at 'Residence del Castelluccio', a development of small houses in the woods, on a tranquil hill near to Monteverdi Marittimo in the Costa Etrusca area of Tuscany. The gardens have a beautiful view over the Val di Cornia towards Monteverdi and Monterotondo, and in the distance the island of Elba. The houses can be rented separately or together for 2 families who wish to be near each other. They are well furnished to a high standard in a rustic and comfortable style and each has a garden and patio for outdoor living. Most of the properties nearby are owned by Italians wishing to escape from the heat and pollution of the cities in summer. There are some lovely walks in the woods directly from the door. At 500 mt distance, shared swimming pool (ca. 25x15 Mt), open from 28 May to 30 September with children's club, There is also a restaurant and minimarket.
Please note sleeps 8 only when Le Rondini and La Civetta are rented together. 10 % discount offered.
This is ideal country for walking, cycling, horse riding or touring. The hills abound with wildlife, from tiny birds to wild boar and deer. For those wanting to see the sights, Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Siena are all within easy reach. Half an hour will bring you to one of the best sandy beaches in Tuscany at Castagneto. San Vincenzo and Baratti are also within 45 minutes. Local shops can be found at Monteverdi and Sassetta, both 10 mins away. Larger supermarkets are at Donoratico 10km. There is a choice of excellent restaurants, details of which can be found in each house. The cuisine includes locally available meat, game produce, home-made pasta and is simple but delicious. There are also many vineyards in the area which can be visited to buy or just to taste. Many of the 'Supertuscan' wines such as Ornellaia and Sassicaia are grown nearby. There are interesting and pretty medieval towns and villages to visit and beautiful countryside to enjoy.
