Charming Hosts and Accomodations
My wife and I stayed at Il Casettino for nine days in October. Don't be put off by the unpaved road to the property. The apartment was charming, comfortable, well-maintained and very clean. It is about a five minute drive up the hill to Radicondoli where there are several restaurants (we highly recommend Bar Trattoria Il Nazionale) and a couple grocers. The hosts, Rossi and Grazia, are wonderful: gracious and eager to please. They both speak enough English for easy communication. High points were the large fig tree near our front door and Rossi's delicious wine. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.
IL CASETTINO - HOLIDAY HOUSE is far km. 1,5 from the small medieval village of Radicondoli and it's located in a strategic position that allows you to quickly reach the main art cities of Tuscany: Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Volterra, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni. For those who love art, then a must is the impressive Basilica of San Galgano, which thanks to its special acoustics, is home to numerous classical music concerts.
A short distance from Radicondoli are also the Chianti vineyards and attractive seaside resorts on the Tyrrhenian coast, including: Follonica, Castiglione della Pescaia, the Etruscan Gulf of Baratti, just to name a few.
Also noteworthy is the ability to reach, via the port of Piombino, Elba Island, which together with the other islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, is part of the largest Europe Marine Park, the largest protected area of European seas. The park is characterized by a great variety of habitats populated by different forms of life.From the beaches of the Elba to the rocky cliffs of the western Capraia, a myriad of plant and animal species live in every corner of one of the most fascinating natural environments: the sea.
For those who want to dive into the past, with all its history, there is the opportunity to walk (or drive) on the Via Francigena. It represents another great wealth that belongs to this territory, in fact the Francigena has been declared by the Council of Europe Major Cultural Route, which crosses Britain, France, Switzerland, Italy to the Vatican State. It was launched by the Longobards and later incorporated into a pilgrimage route. In Tuscany, it crosses the province of Massa Carrara, Pisa, Lucca, Florence and Siena. The point of connection to the Via Francigena, closer to Radicondoli is near Monteriggioni, Abbadi Isola and leads to Siena.
For those who want to perform physical care, but also regain their physical fitness, their beauty, the ideal is to spend a day of relaxation and pleasure at the Spa of Petriolo (40 minute drive) or at the Baths of St. John in Rapolano Terme (1 hour drive) surrounded by wild nature.
Even for lovers of cycling trails and routes are available for all needs, which are developed by the hills of Radicondoli territory.
