Il Saletro Seaside Apartments



WELCOME TO CASTAGNETO CARDUCCI!

Castagneto Carducci, is located in Tuscany, near Livorno, in the well-known Costa degli Etruschi (Etruscan Coast).

Castagneto is a hilltop charming medieval village, overlooking the seaside, surrounded by woods, olive groves and vineyards. It is the perfect place where you can completely relax yourself in a quiet and peaceful atmosphere , “far from the madding crowd”, in the enchanting Tuscany countryside, between the sea and the rolling hills of Maremma.

In these places, the famous Italian poet Giosuè Carducci spent his childhood that longingly recalls in some of his most famous poems such as Davanti San Guido e San Martino.

Castagneto Carducci can be easily reached by car with the motorway A12 direction Rosignano Solvay then the highway SS1 direction Grosseto. It is also well connected by train to Pisa,  Pisa airport, Livorno and Florence.

Il Saletro apartments are ideally located in Castagneto, in a quiet residential area, within walking distance from the historic centre, reachable with a nice stroll… and without concerns about  parking!
