Area Information: The Tuscan coast is a unique destination for memorable seafront vacations. Days are long, leisurely, sun-kissed and fun-filled; the seaside is unspoiled, and gentle warm breezes sweep the bright blue skies. The clear, unspoiled sea caresses soft sandy beaches, stunning rocky cliffs and romantic secluded pebble beaches, providing each and all, from couples to families with children to groups of fun-loving adults, with their ideal seaside retreat. The Tuscan coast offers countless exquisite villas and a selection of charming family-friendly holiday homes nestled in the midst of the splendid, extremely diverse, natural environment. Century-old oak and pine tree woods give way to shiny lakes and ample valleys, fragrant with the typical local shrubs; marshes and flatlands border resplendent vineyards, and the nearby mountains, covered by bountiful chestnut trees or entirely made of glistening marble, provide unique daily excursion options.
Donoratico village, 3 kms away, has a railway station, a post office, many supermarkets and specialized delicatessen food shops, hairdressers, florist, a pharmacy and many different kinds of stores, doctors and medical first aid (outpatients). The nearest hospital is in Cecina, a small town 15 kms north.
About 15 minutes away, on the beach, is the Tombolo Resort, a spa with talassotherapy. Golf courses are 30 to 50 minutes driving distance.
The Island of Elba can easily be reached by ferry or by hydrofoil from Piombino harbour which is 30 minutes away.
Boats can be hired in the nearby harbors of San Vincenzo or Baratti to go visit the nearest islands.
Vehicles: Due to the fact that many properties in this area can be accessed only by unsealed roads and driveways, we advise people intending to take a sports or low-slung car on holiday, to check with us first whether the access to the property allows for such a car. We advise against the use of vans and minibuses. Please always check with us at the time of booking if you are planning to use this type of vehicle when staying at a property in this area.
Swimming: If your rental period is outside the period May 15th to September 30dt, please check with us that the pool can be opened. Swimming pools are not enclosed with fences and there are no lifeguards. Clients’ use of the swimming pool is at their own risk.
Heating: Usage will be metered throughout your stay and you will be charged accordingly. Charges must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked to make a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.sked to make a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.
Water and Electricity: Please note that most of the properties in our portfolio are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.
Internet Connection: Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
