TREKKING, MOUNTAIN BIKE AND HORSE-RIDING
Nature lovers will find that there are all sorts of trails for them to follow, whether on foot, bike or horseback. These trails wind their way along the coastline or through the nature reserves, providing visitors with many opportunities to enjoy enchanting landscapes and the wonderful colours and aromas that are so typical of the Mediterranean brush.
SAILING AND WINDSURF
There are two tourist ports in this area, Piombino and the recently up-dated San Vincenzo. Sailing and windsurfing fans will be delighted to learn that the winds in this area tend to range between moderate and strong, which means they are likely to have a good time!
There are a few stables nearby that are only too happy to organize accompanied rides in our beautiful countryside.
SIGHTSEEING TRIPS TO THE TUSCAN ISLANDS
With boats departing from the ports of Piombino, San Vincenzo and Santo Stefano, it’s easy to hop on a boat and visit some of Tuscany’s islands (Elba, Capraia, Giannufri, del Giglio etc.)
Boats can be hired from Baratti, Piombino and Ponte D’Oro
FULLY EQUIPPED BEACHES
Whilst access to some beaches along the coastline costs nothing, those that are fully-equipped do charge. The so-called ULTIMA SPIAGGIA (last beach) is just 1km away and the one in Baratti only 2km. On the eastern coast (from Piombino to Follonica) there are also some beaches that even have a restaurant.
If you and your four-legged friend want to enjoy a day at the seaside together, you can choose between the DOG BEACH, less than 5km away in San Vincenzo, or the GLAM BEACH, 6km away on the east coast.
A truly fun-day out can be had at the CAVALLINO MATTO (Crazy Horse) Fun park in Marina di Donoratico (20km), where both the young and the simply young at heart are bound to enjoy trying all the different rides. There are also two parks with child appeal in San Vincenzo (5km)
An “educational” farm in Cecina provides an opportunity to wander amongst local plants and rose arbours and to the delight of children of all ages, you can also get up close to both farm and exotic animals.
A 30km drive to Follonica or Cecina is all it takes for a fun day out at the ACQUA VILLAGE with its water slides, swimming pools and various other activities too.
We are happy to help guests contact a nearby bicycle hire shop that is only too willing to bring the bikes here for you.
FOOD AND HISTORY
In the medieval villages dotted round and about, such as Campiglia Marittima, Suvereto and Massa Marittima, there are plenty of excellent restaurants serving traditional Tuscan dishes, with local game being a particular speciality.
