SURROUNDINGS

We are in Tuscany, birthplace of the Etruscan civilization and of the Renaissance, country of the wine Chianti and of the green Maremma. Abundant resources of that region should please everybody: art, culture, gastronomy, amusements, wellbeing and more. This is the reasons why outside the village wants to give you some tips to organize better you stay here.

Seaside
If you want to spend a day on the beach, a part from the one you can easily reach through the pine forest, we can suggest the famous white beaches of Vada or the rocky shoreline of Castiglioncello. Should you look for some alternative, there is at a few hundred metres from the village a large aquatic park where our guests may enjoy special fares.

Parks
The road which leads from the village to the sea crosses a listed centuries-old pine wood with signposted paths with distance indications and picnic areas. Near Orbetello, a heaven of wild life , il parco dell'uccellina , can be visited upon prior agreement; another one, l'oasi di Bolgheri, is located near San Vincenzo.

Horse riding
The nearby pine forest is the right place for horse riding ( arranged by the riding school next to the village ). Other riding schools can be found in the neighbouring country-side.

Thermal springs
Tuscany has got numerous spa resorts; nearer to the village are Caldana, Casciana, Montecatini, San Giuliano, Saturnia, all being easily reachable in one day drive.

Art and story
Besides our location not far from important towns such as Pisa, Florence, Lucca, Siena, we have Etruscan and Roman vestiges in the near towns of Volterra ( Etruscan Guarnacci museum and Roman theatre ) and Populonia; right at Cecina mare, archaeological discoveries have been made at the San Vincenzino escavations.

Markets and events
Weekly markets are scheduled on Tuesday in Cecina, Sunday at Cecina mare, Monday at Rosignano-Solvay and Saturday at San Vincenzo; Every last Sunday of the month takes place a marked named Mercatino dell'Antiquariato in the Cecina pedestrian area. Amongst the events we may point out the annual beetles rally as well as the carnival floats show named Targa Cecina and, in October, the wine festival in Montescudaio.
