La casa di Grazia è nel centro del bellissimo borgo di Giglio Castello. La posizione è molto suggestiva per chi ama tranquillità e romanticismo. L'appartamento è pulito, ben arredato e confortevole (solo un pò ripida la scala che porta alla seconda camera matrimoniale, adatta a persone giovani). Vicinissimi all'appartamento un'ottima pizzeria (appena fuori la porta di casa!) e a pochi passi ottimi ristoranti (Trione da Meino in particolare!) con prezzi adeguati. Accesso centrale per tutti i sentieri per le diverse parti dell'isola. Consiglio senz'altro questo soggiorno!

Giglio Castello. perched on top of the mountain and protected by a complete and solid wall system, a height of 400 m. asl., dominates the island with views spanning 360 degrees on the surrounding seas, where you can admire the views that are close to perfection. Lovely views of the Argentario, Giannutri, Monte Cristo and Elba giving the viewer the exact perception of being on an island.

Al Castello you enter through a door that reveals a striking world intact and frozen in time.

You can walk in the alleys surmounted by stone arches, where there are still old balzuoli who were stairs to climb to the upper floors, all dominated by the Rocca Aldobrandesca and enclosed by a curtain of walls that make Giglio Castello one of the villages well preserved, charming and characteristic of Italy.

Inside the village, of particular interest is the Church of St. Peter the Apostle, in which you can admire a large number of artifacts.

In the square below the church, you can see the tank built at the end of the '700 by the Medici, to solve the water problems of the castle.

Finally you can walk in the streets, where there are many small shops and cellars, where you can enjoy the Ansonaco, a great amber wine typical of the area.

Clean sandy beaches are 10 minutes away by car or bus, while others can be reached on foot along the paths, that offering some really unique or by sea. On the beach you can rent sun beds, umbrellas and pedal boats, while at Giglio Campese and Giglio Porto are located dive centers and boat rentals with and / or without a driver, to lead you in the beautiful coves. There are excellent restaurants for all tastes both the Castle and the sea, while the bars and shops are within walking distance. A holiday at Giglio is an unforgettable experience and many people return year after year to enjoy its unique hospitality.
