- About The Experience
A large family or group of friends will be thrilled with the rental of this enchanting 19th century villa. It is situated close to the main square of Castiglioncello, which is a fashionable seaside resort on the Tuscan coast. It is very close to the beach and has its own private swimming pool so is perfect for working on a suntan, relaxing, and swimming. It is also close to Pisa and has many old villages along its coastal roads for daytrips. The climate is mild year round and views of the Tyrrhenian Sea and Elba Island are always spectacular.
- Location Description
The town of Castiglioncello is located on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea and is at the base of the Livorno hills. The village has several shops and cafes and a nice beach area It is easy to walk to town. The sea is about 100 meters away. It is possible to walk to the beach by the house but it is at the bottom of a steep slope so is somewhat rigorous. There is a railway station for Pisa and Rome in Castiglioncello.

Peace and Quiet
Very good. We didn't expect to have WiFi in the villa, but there is WiFi on the first floor!
Within 5 minutes walking distance to the market and village. It is by the sea and has a beautiful view.
Some of the bathrooms' showers might benefit from an upgrade.
It is a beautiful seaside town, very convenient.
Nearby Events or Locales:
5 minutes walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
The villa provided everything and the kitchen is fully equipped. A very nice seafood restaurant, La Lucciola, is within walking distance. It is run by a family, lovely place and great food.
We rented a car from Milan and the car rental company also provided GPS. We had no problem finding the place. We also had a 9 passenger minivan, didn't have any problem driving to the property.
Check In Out:
Check in and check out were very smooth and easy. Max was very helpful and easy to work with.
We loved our 2 weeks in Villa Castiglioncello. We were within easy walking distance of Castiglioncello and the beach. The bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable. Three repairs or adjustments were immediately attended to by the homeowners. A happy celebration of our anniversary.
Its proximity to town and the beach.
The busy street Via Aurelia.
We are students of Italian history and art and enjoyed trips to Pisa, Lucca, and Volterra.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Castiglioncello was a 5-minute walk away. We walked back and forth a couple of times a day.
Tips or Restaurants:
All restaurants that we tried were GREAT! The 2 clay tennis courts in the park across from the railroad station were a great find.
We did not use a GPS. The villa is easy to find.
