Things for kids near Saturnia


We are going to Saturnia in a couple of weeks for the weekend, my husband will be playing golf for a couple of days and my 5 year old son and I will be exploring the area. Has anyone got any good tips for things to do/see in the area with a young child? We will go to the thermal baths and the waterfall and I was thinking about a trip to the coast one day (even in October I hope he can have a paddle in the sea, run on the beach, fly his kite etc), but I would be very grateful for any other suggestions. The websites I have been looking at for the area don't seem too good at suggesting things for children. We have a car and I don't mind driving for an hour or so to get somewhere.

Thanks for any help

Hi, when you say in a couple of weeks it means end October? I am not sure it's the proper season to have a paddle in the sea, probably just a run on the beach nothing else. By that time of the year almost all places are closed. The only possibility but just on Saturdays (till Oct.30th) is CAVALLINO MATTO in Donoratico, which is approx 1hr driving north from Saturnia - Have a look at the web: http://www.cavallinomatto.it/

Take him to Sovano to the site of the Etruscan tombs.....caves. My grandchildren loved it. Sylvan setting (babbling brook) , not too much walking to get to the site.....slightly spooky. Very close by your location.
