About the property

Flat in a villa with garden

We have WI-FI 20 Mega, climatisation, satellite TV (Hotbird), windows soundproofed

Other reasons by which you must come to Marina di Castagneto Carducci in Tuscany ?

MILD HILLS: In no other part of the Tuscan coast you will find such a mild landscape with hills sweetly declining to the sea

RIGHT CENTER OF TUSCANY: You are in the right center of Tuscany with all the best beaches, islands and historical cities at max 1.5 hours

VARIETY: In no other municipality you have a warm seaside (with rocks or sand in the beach at your choice) and at just 5 minutes from it a large fresh forest in the hills

Why to come to Villa Tracina ?

WE DO IT FOR OUSELVES: Villa Tracina is a family – owned holiday house since 1968: we offer to our guests the same quality we demand for ourselves and for our family members.

CLOSE TO THE SEA BUT NOT TOO MUCH: we do not like houses less than 1000 meters from the seaside: wind is too strong, sand enters always in the house, humidity is suffocating in hot weather, waves’ noise can be disturbing during stormy periods. It is why my parents in 1968 decided to build the villa “close to the sea but not too much” at 1400 meters from the beach.

GREEN GARDEN: We have a 1000 meters garden and all the flats has a 4 X 4 meters sun umbrella over a paved floor where you will spend the most of your time.

DOGS AND PETS: Dogs are welcome, we have mobile networks to carve out a quarter of the garden and anyhow the dog beach is at 10 minutes walking (5 minutes in bike).

HOT TIPS FOR A REAL TUSCANY: Since we know the territory we do not sell you a plastic postal card but we will offer you an updated list of hot tips: Restaurants, things to see and do, food and wine, events, etc. This tips will be RESERVED just to those that rent a flat from us: in the contract we will show you the password to read the hot tips.

Why Emilio Tomasini chose Marina di Castagneto Carducci

This has been the town for my family's summer vacation since 1968.

What makes this apartment unique

I go there with my family every summer and the quality of the furniture is something you do for yourself and not for the others. The house is built with the logic of years '60 with large space and a deep interconnection with the outside garden so that basically you are tempted to live under the high maritime pines

The house is located at the edge of the heart of the great Tuscan wine district, close to the charming town of Bolgheri. In a small coastal Italian vacation spot with its own 'connecting' town up in the hillside, just as charming. The beach is a stone throw away, yet not all perfect for small children because of the way the shore suddenly drops a bit after a few metres. But there are plenty of other superb options close by, or by car. A car is generally advised, if you have small children in your family, otherwise it seems like people enjoy using their bikes in the area. Marina di Castagneto Carducci is a holiday & beach town, mostly populated with Italians, not too big, not too large. And a splendid theme park is situated beneath shadowy trees that are engulfing the village itself. Everyday shopping options are plenty in the nearby town Donoratico and Marina di Castagneto Carducci also has a small grocery store.

We rented one of the larger apartments in the lovely house. We had our own car entrance, and a piece of garden, that although was shared with the other tenants, had a good feeling of privacy. A big plus was the large table with a huge sunshade just outside our entrance that we used quite a lot during the hot hours. In the garden, you'll find your own grill, a water hose and a clothesline. The apartment has all the stuff you need, from washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, TV, Wi-fi etcetera and it is spacey. You'd probably spend the most of your time outside or away from it anyway, visiting cities or beaches nearby (and again, a car here is a big plus). A few stairs lead up to two large bedrooms and a nice bathroom with bidet. The place was spotless when we arrived, and the house and its garden is taken excellent care off in general. Don't be alarmed if the caretakers are wandering around the property sometimes (not in the apartment though), making sure all is in good order.

And speaking of caretakers, we were well received, everyone very pleasant, helpful and friendly and Emilio was always on top of every issue that occurred (and there were only a few, minor ones).

All in all a great stay and a great place.

Ruhiger Ferienaufenthalt im Oktober - Schönes Haus, schöne Einrichtung, sauber und sehr gepflegt

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zu zweit in der grossen Wohnung. Für uns war also genügend Platz in der neuwertig und schön eingerichteten Wohnung.

In der Wohnung selbst war alles vorhanden was man braucht- viel Geschirr und Besteck, viele Töpfe und Pfannen, Essig und Öl.

Wohnung tip top in Ordnung und sauber.

Schneller und problemloser Kontakt zum Vermieter per Nachrichtenfunktion.

Sehr ruhig zu dieser Jahreszeit, auch sehr wenig Autoverkehr auf den anliegenden Strassen.

Schöne schattige Plätze im grossen Garten.

Genügend Sitzmöglichkeiten, Grill (sehr sauber gereinigt) war optimal.

Ideal als Ausgangspunkt zu den schönsten Reisezielen in der Toskana.

Sehr schöner Strand (1500m)

Mit dem Auto hat man in der Umgebung sehr gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten / Donoratico.

In Donoratico ist Donnerstag Vormittag ein Markt.

Wlan funktionierte einwandfrei.

Das Auto kann man sehr gut auf den Grundstück parken.

Es waren sehr schöne Tage in der Ferienwohnung, vielen Dank

Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung

  • 5 of 5

Die "große" Ferienwohnung in der Villa Tracina verfügt im Parterre über einen sehr geräumigen und gemütlichen Wohnbereich sowie eine Küche mit Geschirrspüler und Waschmaschine. In ersten Stock befinden sich Bad und WC sowie zwei Schlafzimmer. Die Ferienwohnung war bei unserem Aufenthalt in einem sehr gepflegten Zusatnd, auch WIFI funktionierte problemlos, sodass wir "unsere" Zeitung täglich lesen konnten.

Der Vermieter ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit und steht mit Rat und Tat und besonderen Ausflugstipps gern zur Seite. Wer des Italienischen nur bedingt mächtig ist - so wie ich - kann sich mit ihm wunderbar in Englisch oder Französisch unterhalten.

Wir sind immer mit unserer Labrador-Hündin unterwegs, da war es ganz wunderbar, dass der freie Hundestrand in der Nähe der Villa ist (ca. 1,5 km). Ganz nahe beim Strand befindet sich ein großer Parkplatz, sodass auch für "Fußlahme", die nicht gerne weit gehen, gesorgt ist.

Neuerdings kann man an diesem Strand auch Liegebetten und Sonnenschirme mieten.

Von Marina di Castagneto Carducci sind auch viele touristische "Highlights" wie Volterra, Lucca, San Gimignano oder Siena leicht als Tagesausflugsziel zu erreichen. Besonders erwähnen möchte ich den reizenden Ort Bolgheri, der nur ca. 10 km entfernt und wirklich sehenswert ist, schon allein wegen der Anfahrt durch die Zypressenallee.

Insgesamt haben wir in der Villa Tracina einen wunderbaren, erholsamen Urlaub verbracht, wir haben uns dort sehr wohlgefühlt. Ich würde dieses Objekt jederzeit weiterempfehlen.

Très bien placé et très bon logement

  • 5 of 5

Bel appartement rénové dans la nature et au calme. Tous les équipements pour passer de bonnes vacances sont présents. De plus le propriétaire a refait la décoration, ce qui donne du cachet et un côté cosy au logement, c'est très agréable. Proche de la mer et à quelques minutes de l'autoroute, c'est très facile d'accès. Nous reviendrons cet été avec des amis.

Très bel appartement rénové et séjour reposant

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions en famille dans cet appartement au milieu des pins parasol. L'appartement a été rénové récemment et les équipements sont neufs. Le style cosy et la touche de décoration soignée donnent du cachet à cet endroit. Le calme à proximité de la mer - nous reviendrons.
