The house is a few miles outside of downtown Castiglione. We easily rode the bicycles provided to the beaches and downtown restaurants and shopping area. The a/c was nice in July and the yard was great for our two small dogs. The kitchen was adequate to cook meals and staples were left behind by others.
Recommendation: Walk out the driveway and turn right to the the restaurant two houses up (not a pizzeria). Get the grilled chicken, homemade pasta, and whatever they offer for dessert. Our nine year old declared it the best restaurant in Italy. There is the one main grocery store in town the COOP, which is tourist expensive, so bring what you can if driving.
Martina, the owner, is easy to work with and accommodating.
The house is brand new, freshly refurbished, just like the photos.
5 min by car from the nearest beach and yet surrounded by some classical Tuscan pastoral: hills, cypresses, wine-yards etc. so you get the best of both worlds. There is a taverna surprisingly just outside the premisses, in the middle of this wilderness - very convenient. The owners are nice and very forthcoming. My babe fell sick - and there was a family doctor in the house in 45 minutes... Many thanks and best wishes to Martina!
