We wish to welcome you to Castiglione della Pescaia, our little corner of paradise. Even the name, when whispered quietly to yourself, summons up a feeling of warmth and cordiality. Our tiny town sits on the shore of the beautiful Tyrrhenian Sea in the part of Tuscany known locally as the Maremma, where the river Bruna empties its waters collected from the mountains around Massa Marittima, at the northern extremity of the Maremma’s fertile alluvial plain. The medieval town with its  dwellings and castle stands atop a rocky outcrop from which you have a truly spectacular view of the Tuscan Archipelago with the islands of Elba at your right hand, Giglio straight ahead and Monte Argentario and the looming Maremma Nature Park to your left hand. On clear days the chalky slopes of Montecristo Island can be seen between and beyond Elba and Giglio, and perhaps even the distant mountains of Corsica.

Down below you the “new” town spreads itself around the lower slopes of the rock and you see the port from which a handful of small fishing boats leave most mornings, returning in the evening with their catch of fish and crustaceans, carrying on the centuries-old tradition of the people of Castiglione. Between you and the port are the buildings of the town; the Coastguard, the Guarda di Finanza, the charming hotels and guest houses, and all the small restaurants and bars where our visitors can find exquisite food and regional wines, in addition to cocktails and spritzes.  Should you be a beach person, there is no better place to be, as our town prides itself on having a prize-winning beach that has been awarded “Le Bandiere Blu” for the past several years, demonstrating the municipality’s excellence in beach management and attention to water purity. Moreover you will be delighted to find several bagni (beach bars) with their traditional colorful umbrellas and loungers for your comfort and enjoyment both in and out of the sunshine, whilst you keep an eye on the kids and lazily while away the daytime hours. To maintain your interest in the local food and drinks many of the bagni and bars in the town provide in the early evening what has become called “apericena”- a linking of aperitivo and cena (dinner), and it is not unknown for visitors to the town to visit several establishments to sample the different kinds of free food put out for those who buy an aperitivo at the bar. Taking an apericena at a street-side table offers great people-watching pleasure.

You will find a warm welcome in Castiglione Della Pescaia. We are ready to make your vacation a truly unforgettable experience.  reduce
