of the countryside by the sea

Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci

Some of the most renowned Tuscan wines in the world are produced in the countryside of the Etruscan Coast, from Sassicaia to Ornellia, up to Masseto. Traveling the Wine Route and tasting a glass immersed in these landscapes has a truly unique flavor. Just 12 km from our spa and farmhouse complex “La Cerreta” is Castagneto Carducci, with its cozy village nestled on the hill, about a fifteen-minute drive away from a crystal clear sea.

Here, walking through the paved alleys, you will find Casa Carducci, where poems and documents related to the poet Giosuè Carducci are kept, the Palazzo Comunale and many ancient churches such as la Chiesa del Santissimo Crocifisso… But the relaxed atmosphere is also fascinating to the visitor, with that unusual sea breeze that reaches into the countryside. Not to be missed, a little further north, is Bolgheri, a village introduced by the famous Viale dei Cipressi “tall and straightforward”, celebrated by Carducci. The center winds and twists inside the characteristic red brick Castle.
