Neighborhood info

Set on the coast of Maremma, right at the heart of the Sun Gulf between Piombino and Punta Ala and facing the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, Follonica has been a popular tourist and sea resort since the early Sixties. Lovely pinewoods, a luxuriant Mediterranean bush, long, sandy beaches, romantic coves and crystal-blue waters are the perfect mix for special holidays. The coastline is low and clean, an irresistible attraction for families with children. Every year the European Blue Flag vouches for the quality of waters and the cleanliness of this stretch of Tuscan coast. The golden sands of Cala Violina to the South, Torre Mozza and Carbonifera to the North, with the Sterpaia Coast Park, a pleasant oasis of dunes and shady pinewoods mirrored in one of the loveliest seas stretches in the Region, are only a few minutes´ drive away. The islands of the Tuscan Archipelago are within easy reach. You can discover the stunning beauty of Pianosa, Giglio and Capraia on a sailing excursion or mini-cruises. In the nearby area you can also visit the Etruscan archaeological sites of Vetulonia and Populonia. Gourmet visitors enjoy the flavours of typical Tuscan produce
