The Etruscan coast is a special area. The sea, mountains, and hills are a natural set and unique environment in the world. The cuisine is excellent and the small medieval villages are treasures to discover.
From Podere Pianetti it is easy to reach other cities of art in Tuscany, such as Florence, Pisa, Volterra, and Siena, or beautiful natural beaches such as the wonderful gulf of Populonia, the white beach of Vada, the exclusive Calette of Castigliancello. The entire coast is marked with blue flags, valuable and important signs of clean and well kept seawater.
Along the road of Castagneto Carducci you can reach Bolgheri which is followed by fields, olives groves, and vineyard. We are on the Strada of Vino Doc Bolgheri, the Eldorado of Tuscan wine. Here you will meet the majestic Viale dei Cipressi that takes to Bolgheri. From the terrace of the village you can admire the countryside and the sea. Or you can stop and taste the cuisine of the trattorias and visit the wine bar restaurant for a glass of tasty Sassicaia..
In Castagneto Carducci there are romantic views with great atmosphere throughout the narrow streets and pathways where it’s nice to have a relaxing stop for a snack and let the time slowly pass by.
Let’s remember the medieval villages around Podere, such as Casale Marittimo, Suvereto, Campiglia Marittima, Montescudaio, and Bibbona.
Other notable Etruscan attractions on the sea are Il Parco Archeologico di Baratti-Populonia, museums full of Etruscan, Roman, and Villanoviani heritages, such as the ones in Rosignano Marittimo, Cecina e Piombino, and many more archaeological areas and exhibitions that are the testimony of this corner of Tuscany.
The Etruscan coast offers wellness centre and great relax opportunities. In Venturina you will find the thermal Valle del Sole and Il Calidario with natural hot springs at 36 degrees. Only 5km away from Podere let the Centro Talassoterapico of the Grand Hotel il Tombolo take care of you with its sensorial pathway of talassoterapia and 5 indoor pools filled with seawater.
The Terme of Sassetta are located in the heart of the natural setting of our hills and provide moments of priceless relaxation.
Families can enjoy a big splash of fun in Tuscany’s largest water park of Il Cavallino Matto di Marina di Castagneto. Only 4km from Podere and Parco Gallorose a Cecina.
