You can just relax and sun-bathe on the beach in front of the hotel or walk on the sandy beach all the way to Marina di Castagneto Carducci, 10 km north, shopping in the pedestrian area in the centre or walk along the new ‘Sailor promenade’ (Passeggiata del Marinaio), with the Sailor’s Statue made by local sculptor G. Talani at the entrance of the Marina. Try one of the beachfront restaurants with their fresh fish or Tuscan specialities and burn off calories along the walking trails (Il Corbezzolo, Il Ginepro) on our hills, on foot, or with a bicycle or even go horseriding.

The Islands of the Tuscan Archipelago (Elba, Capraia, Pianosa, Giglio) are just a boat ride away, with daily departure from our Marina.

Hotel del Sole is right in the centre of an area full of historical and artistic attractions, blessed by magnificent nature. We have the archaeological Etruscan sites of Baratti and Populonia with its famous Necropolis overlooking the bay, Campiglia Marittima is a medieval jewel overlooking all the Val di Cornia valley, with a well mantained 10th Century fortress, the Archaelogical Mine Park of San Silvestro and thermal springs with hot water pools and spa in the Venturina Terme suburb.

Bolgheri is 20 mins away with its WWF Oasis and its World Heritage cypress ‘Avenue’, not to mention its Supertuscan wines… Sassicaia, Ornellaia, Guado al Tasso all produced here.

Sassetta is a small village nestled in the woods, a lumberjack’s world, ideal for excursions off the beaten track or a relaxing day in a thermal spa (La Cerreta).

Suvereto has the most amazing view over the hills and stages the famous ‘Sagra del Cinghiale’ (wild boar festival) every year early december together with many other Village Fairs all year around.

Rimigliano is an amazing pine forest along the sea where you can find the ideal beach for you pet’s holiday..the Dog Beach has all the services you and your friendly pet might need.

Again, if riding a bicycle is what you love most, the Etruscan Coast is ideal for this sport with great itineraries immersed in nature and history.
