Our farm is located in the heart of the Etruscan Coast:
On the coast, from Livorno to Piombino, follow each other beautiful locations: Castiglioncello, Rosignano, Vada, Cecina, Marina di Castagneto. White sand beaches like those of Vada alternate with darker beaches of Marina di Castagneto, Bibbona and Cecina, to arrive at the perfect balance between rock and sand of the bay Quercetano of Castiglioncello. Much of the land of the Etruscan Coast is organized in parks and nature reserves.
