Tuscany-Etruscan Coast-Castiglioncello-Apartment in a cottage with private garden/park, 150 mt far from the beach. Toscana-Costa degli Etruschi-Castiglioncello-Appartamento in villa con giardino/parcheggio privato a 150 metri dal mare

Tuscany doesn't need any introduction: here you find 7 Unesco Heritage Sites and you'll be able to visit all of them with day trips, if you want!
Castiglioncello is located along the so called "Etruscan Coast"(www.costadeglietruschi.it), just 20 Km south from Livorno and only 45 Km far from Pisa Airport.
My property consists of an apartment with private garden in a villa of four units.
The apartment is in the first floor (not groung floor!); it is about 90 square meters and has got has an entrance, a large living room (dining + sitting) with a well equipped kitchen open space. There are two bedrooms; in the master bedroom there is a king size bed and a bunk bed for two kids or teenagers; in the large second bedroom there is a king size double bed as well.
The apartment has only one bathroom (with a tub) and two balconies, one in the front side (living-room) and one in the bask side (second bedroom).
The garden is shady, with mediterranean trees (pines and oaks) and you can park two cars there.
The beach is very close...you just have to walk to the end of the road (150 mt) and you'll find the closest beach and the pedestrian path "passeggiata"; if you then walk to the north you'll go to the large pinewood and the city centre while if you walk to the south you'll go to the Marina.
The house and its location in Tuscany are perfect for any needs and families: if you want to travel by car you can visit a lot of wonderful Medieval towns (Volterra, San Gimignano,...) and villages to eventually taste good food and famous wines, or you can reach beautiful cities (Pisa, Lucca, Siena and, last but not least Florence!) even by train.
If, on the contrary, you just want to rest, let's simply feel free to do it, as I often do!

La Toscana non ha bisogno di presentazioni: qui trovate ben 7 siti patrimonio dell'UNESCO e, se vorrete, potrete visitarli tutti con visite giornaliere!
Castiglioncello si trova lungo la cosiddetta "costa degli Etruschi", 20 Km a sud di Livorno, a soli 45 Km dall'aeroporto di Pisa.
La porzione di villa di mia proprietà, situata al primo piano, dispone di un giardino spazioso, con vegetazione mediterranea (pini marittimi e lecci) con la possibilità di parcheggiarvi 2 auto.
L'appartamento è dotato di due balconi; dispone di un ampio soggiorno con cucina open space, di due camere da letto matrimoniali (in una delle due si trovano anche 2 ulteriori letti a castello) e di un solo bagno completo, per cui è ottimale per un uso familiare.
Il giardino ombroso e l'estrema vicinanza alla passeggiata lungomare e alla spiaggia (150 m) sono elementi chiave per garantire un soggiorno rilassante e confortevole sia alle dinamiche coppie giovani con bambini che alle persone meno giovani o più sedentarie.
In giornata si possono raggiungere e visitare le principali città d'arte (Pisa, Lucca, Firenze, Siena,..) sia in auto che in treno, effettuare escursioni negli incantevoli borghi medievali (Volterra, San Gimignano,...), magari dedicate alla eno-gastronomia.
Non mancano le cose da fare, ma se vuoi solo riposare sentiti libero di farlo!

The beach is really close to the house (about 150 mt). You will enjoy walking along the pedestrian "passeggiata" either to the Marina ( going south) and to Castiglioncello pinewood and the city centre/"la piazzetta" (going north).
There are many shops and also a large supermarket at walking distance.
If you like to visit the weekly markets you can go to the Castiglioncello pinewood on Tuesday or to Rosignano Solvay on Monday.

La spiaggia è a soli 150 metri dalla casa. E' bello percorrere la passeggiata pedonale lungomare sia nella direzione del porto turistico (verso sud) che verso la pineta e la piazzetta di Castiglioncello (verso nord).
Ci sono molti negozi e anche un ampio supermercato a breve distanza.
Se vi piace frequentare i mercati potrete trovarli nella pineta di Castiglioncello di Giovedì e a Rosignano Solvay di Lunedì.

About Our Family

My name is Paola, I am 64. I have three grown up and independent children (42, 38, 25).
I retired a year ago ago after a life spent in school, as a teacher and a principal/headmistress.
I like traveling even alone but more often with my partner or a friend or also with one of my children (unfortunately this doesn't happens often!)...I hope I'll have a lot of opportunities to do it in the next future with Intervac.
I exchanged my house twice in 2016 (NL and FR) and both these experience have been perfect!

Mi chiamo Paola, ho 64 anni; ho tre figli grandi e indipendenti di 42, 38 e 25 anni.
Sono pensionata da un anno, dopo una vita trascorsa a scuola, prima come insegnante e poi come preside.
Amo molto viaggiare, anche da sola, oppure più spesso con il mio compagno o con un'amica o anche con uno dei miei figli (il che capita raramente, purtroppo!)...spero di avere tante occasioni per farlo nel prossimo futuro con Intervac.
Ho realizzato due scambi nel 2016 (NL e FR) ed entrambi sono stati perfetti!

Lifestyle

I am a very active, curious, and open minded person
I like doing simple things: reading, traveling, cooking, meeting friends, going to the cinema. I also volunteer for a charity.
I think that our society needs each of us, despite our age or conditions.
I believe in longlife learning and I hope to further enlarge my view...sharing experiences is the best way to do it!
This home is a perfect retreat if you love to enjoy a natural and wonderful environment, rich yet also of cultural opportunities.

Sono una persona molto attiva, curiosa, aperta.
Amo fare cose piuttosto semplici: leggere, viaggiare, cucinare, incontrare gli amici, andare al cinema. Faccio anche volontariato per una onlus.
Penso che la società abbia bisogno di ciascuno di noi, a prescindere dall'età e dalle condizioni.
Desidero continuare ad imparare per tutta la vita e allargare gli orizzonti e scambiare esperienze è ilmodo più utile e significativo per farlo!
Questa casa è il rifugio perfetto se amate immergervi in un meraviglioso ambiente naturale, ricco però anche di opportunità culturali.
