Located just 10 km from our B&B, Baratti is one of Tuscany's most enchanting gulfs. A magical place where time has stopped in the Etruscan era. It provides a natural shelter to the port and to all the tourists who, not only in summer, want to make the most of its beaches and the countless nature trails to be enjoyed by foot or mountain bike.

7 km away from our B&B, the medieval village of Suvereto is a settlement dating back to the 10th century, and one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.

From the end of the square on very clear days, it appears as if you can almost touch the island of Elba!
The town of San Vincenzo is a popular destination for young people, thanks to its lively nightlife, which especially in summer, concentrates on the seafront.
