Beach vacations

Beach vacations

 Along the coast of Tuscany days commence on the sun-kissed terrace of your Tuscan seaside home, continue somewhat lazily, savoring frothy cappuccinos and typical pastries. And then go on, leisurely, along pristine beaches, while balmy breezes sweep over juniper-covered dunes and golden sand, exploring pine tree forests, diving into the frothy waves… Tuscan beach holidays are made of memorable hours spent exploring tiny villages and quiet stone-paved towns, gazing at the deep blue Tyrrhenian sea’s rolling waves from the smooth wooden deck of a typical peschereccio and savoring fresh catch-of-the-day in welcoming family-run seafront trattorias. Villas and farmhouses along the Tuscan coast, wherever they rise, are surrounded by a varied, unspoiled natural environment, simply magical for nature lovers! Nature-focused activities are countless, from walking in shady century-old woods, observing the grand oaks and graceful pine trees, to bird-watching near shimmering lakes or discovering the area’s sweet-scented shrubs and herbs with a nature guide. The Archipelago, an unpolluted oasis, features numerous islands. All are charming and provide superb destinations for exciting day trips; most of the islands may be easily reached with an easy (and fun!) ferry or private boat ride from the coast’s piers and well-organized main ports. The Tuscan coast also offers numerous, diverse, entertaining activities, for all, adults, teenagers and children. Biking and hiking along sweet-scented trails and discovering wide sunflower-filled valleys. Swimming, canoeing, snorkeling, fishing and diving… visiting the inland mountains, dotted with ancient villages and covered by bountiful chestnut trees or entirely made of glistening marble. Tuscany beach holidays have something to offer everyone: in Versilia, visitors will enjoy the fashionable beachfront towns, with their top-notch designer boutiques, open-air markets and exquisite restaurants. In Tuscan Maremma, less-renowned, travelers can experience an enlightening journey into the past exploring ancient cellars, quiet history-filled villages, and spellbinding archeological ruins. A vacation along the Tuscan coast is… walking hand-in-hand along picturesque piers while admiring bewitching fiery red sunsets. Indulging in scrumptious local seafood, ambrosial wines (the legendary Supertuscans!) and tantalizing gelatos. Or, simply, savoring the enchanted atmosphere and gazing at the waves in the perfect privacy of your villa’s seafront terrace.
