What you can find near to the villa: Dense pinewoods and thick Mediterranean vegetation run down to the wide sandy beach of Marina di Castagneto where an ancient fort, built in Renaissance times to protect the coast, still stands.
The sea here is particularly clean & transparent. This resort, which has often been awarded the European Union’s Blue Flag for the quality of its sea, its environment & its accommodation, offers a choice of fully-equipped bathing beaches & ample stretches of public beach, with a guaranteed life-guard service (Punti Azzurri). Hotels, boarding houses & campsites ensure a comfortable stay in close contact with nature and where all kinds of sports can be enjoyed. Attractions at the Cavallino Matto (Crazy Horse), one of Tuscany’s biggest & best entertainment parks, are fun for children & adults alike. Donoratico: is the country near to Marina di Castagneto & takes its name from the medieval castle situated near the town. The castle ruins & tower are open to visitors.

Very interesting places: BOLGHERI: Immortalised in Giosuè Carducci’s poem 'Before San Guido', 'I cipressi che a Bolgheri alti e schietti van da San Guido in duplice filar...' (The cypresses of Bolgheri, tall & straight, march from San Guido in a double line…) this ancient village has a fascination all of its own. A stone’s throw from the sea and surrounded by countryside where vines & olive trees thrive, this little town with its unspoilt architectural harmony is dominated by the red brick castle which guards the entrance to the village of narrow paved streets & old stone houses bright with geraniums. Spectacular sunsets & darting swallows enliven the skies. Craft shops, wine shops & taverns offer traditional, local products. The churches, the poet Giosuè Carducci’s childhood home & San Guido’s oratory are fascinating to visit, while the surrounding countryside with its holiday & horse-breeding farms is the ideal place for walking, cycling or horse riding. The first WWF wildlife refuge in Italy.

Local events: Castagneto (March-April): A tour of the traditional cuisine of Castagneto rich in unusual and delicious dishes gives you the opportunity to try a wide variety of local wine, among the most praised in the world, such as the legendary Sassicaia. Visitors can have dinner in local restaurants, stop at selected wine shops and taste different kinds of wine produced along the Wine Route and go on guided tours to wine cellars. There are also other cultural initiatives like conferences or book presentations. It is a great opportunity to discover the beauty of this ancient village. It is home to the headquarters of the same local authority which also oversees Bolgheri.
Bibbona (May): From the sea we turn to the land. Here a national mountain-bike competition takes place in the woods of Macchia della Magona at a short distance from the sea. Along a 56 km route the participants in the race and those who choose the 'environment-friendly walk'. WINE TOUR DOC BOLGHERI !!!! Visits with tourist guide.
