The Sea, between the Etruscan Coast and Maremma

Just a few minutes drive from Podere Pietravento are some of Tuscany’s most beautiful beaches awarded the Blue Flag by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), an international organisation that promotes the quality of the environment and coastal territory.
The Val di Cornia, the area in which the Podere is located, unites the Etruscan Coast, that is, the Riviera that extends north of Piombino to Livorno, to the Maremma Grossetana that from the nearby Gulf of Follonica reaches Capalbio and the regional borders.


Torre Mozza Beach (10 minutes by car)

The best-known of the beautiful beaches between Piombino and Follonica is located within the Sterpaia Coastal Park, which preserves and protects some 300 hectares of dunes and woods.

Baratti Beach (20 minutes by car)

The Gulf of Baratti with its fine sandy beach is the ideal place for a relaxing day at the sea. The nearby pine forest is also the ideal place to relax during the hottest hours.
Leaving the car near ancient Populonia, it is a 20-minute walk to Buca delle Fate, a stony beach with a crystal-clear sea, perfect for snorkelling.

Rimigliano Beach (20 minutes by car)

In the municipality of San Vicenzo, inside the Rimigliano Coastal Park, is this beautiful sandy beach. In addition to dunes, Mediterranean maquis and oak and holm-oak woods, the Park offers nature trails and equipped picnic areas.

Sailing in the Tuscan Archipelago

Gorgona, Capraia, Elba, Pianosa, Montecristo, Giglio and Giannutri are the seven major islands that make up the Tuscan Archipelago in the stretch of Tyrrhenian Sea between the Peninsula and Corsica, an area protected by the largest marine park in the Mediterranean.
We believe that sailing is the most beautiful and sustainable way to get to know it up close, either by hiring a boat with a skipper in Piombino or Follonica or by contacting competent operators, so that you can fully and safely enjoy this unforgettable experience.
