Updated on May 19, 2019

In the "centro storico" with breathtaking views

Located in: Castagneto Carducci
Our apartment is situated in the historical centre of Castagneto Carducci, Tuscany. It is a few meters away from the main street which has cafés, restaurants, bars and shops; yet it is a tranquil and peaceful space where you can look out to the sea and over the lush, green hills.
It has a large main room, with a separate kitchen area, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The smaller bedroom opens onto the balcony, which looks over the sea in one direction and over the inland hills in the other.

The space

Each bedroom has a double bed and a capacious wardrobe. The bathroom has a recently-installed modern shower unit. In the living room there is also a sofa, which converts into a spacious double bed at the drop off a hat - or, more precisely, the lifting of a handle.
There is gas central heating and an open fire for the winter and air-conditioning for the summer, though with all the windows open, a deliciously cool breeze will be all you need. There is a dishwasher and a washing machine; a fridge and freezer; a gas hob and an electric oven; a coffee machine, a kettle, and a toaster. A hair dryer, an iron and an ironing board.

Castagneto Carducci is situated in the centre of Tuscany, where culture, history and natural beauty meet to create a myriad of interesting attractions to entertain you throughout the whole year.

During these colder months you can enjoy the wonderful spa at the Terme di Sassetta, and magical walks, immersed in the Mediterranean scrubs on the hills which surround the village; or, a romantic promenade on the interminable soft sandy beach.
If you are interested in going back to the roots of ancient Tuscany, you cannot miss the Guarnacci Etruscan Museum in Volterra or the Roselle excavations near Grosseto.

From Castagneto you are not far from some of the most renowned Tuscan cities, such as Siena, Pisa, Florence, Livorno and Grosseto. If you are looking for forgotten treasures of ancient Tuscan peasant life, the antique markets of Bolgheri, Cecina and Livorno will be your destination.

This area is where you find the so-called Super Tuscans", the most famous of all Italian wines, such as Sassicaia, Ornellaia and Masseto. We recommend the Bolgheri wine tour, where wine tasting at two of the great vineyards is combined with lunch in Bolgheri.

It s only during the autumn and winter that you can find fresh porcini mushrooms, and tartufi, or truffles, and when the hunt comes back with cinghiali, or wild boar and caprioli or wild deer. Add to that fresh pasta and you have a gastronomic paradise, unique in Italy and the world. All this can be bought in local shops in Castagneto and cooked yourself, or tasted in the many wonderful restaurants that are found throughout the region.

Castagneto Carducci is named after the poet Giosuè Carducci 1835 - 1907, who lived there as a child. You can visit his house, situated not far from our apartment in the "centro storico". Carducci was the first Italian to be awarded the Noble prize for literature, and has come to be regarded as the national poet of modern Italy.

Our apartment is named San Martino, after one of Carducci’s most well-known poems. In these lyrics the poet accurately describes Castagneto on the day dedicated to Saint Martin, 11th November.

San Martino:
La nebbia a gl irti colli piovigginando sale,
e sotto il maestrale
urla e biancheggia il mar;
ma per le vie del borgo dal ribollir de tini
va l aspro odor de i vini l anime a rallegrar.
Gira su ceppi accesi
lo spiedo scoppiettando: sta il cacciator fischiando sull uscio a rimirar
tra le rossastre nubi stormi d uccelli neri, com esuli pensieri, nel vespero migrar.

[The fog ascends to the
steep hills amid the rain, and under the mistral
the sea screams and whitens:
but through the alleys of the village the sour smell of wine
from the bubbling vats
warms the soul.
The spit turns, sputtering over burning logs;
the hunter stands, whistling, at the doorway to gaze
at the reddening clouds, while flocks of black birds migrate in the twilight, like exiled thoughts]

Our apartment is situated in the pedestrian zone. Cars can be parked in one of the several free car parks around the village. You can get a bus that will take you to Donoratico and to the beach in Marina di Castagneto. Parking at the beach can be quite challenging, so this is often a good option. The service is regular and reliable - times can be found with the app B On Time, or at the bus stop.
In fact, if you want to leave the car out of it altogether, it’s pretty easy getting to Castagneto from Pisa Airport - and back again. There’s a regular train from the airport to Pisa Centrale, and then trains run to Grossetto, stopping at Donoratico. You can then get the bus up to Castagneto.
