Wonderful place for an urban family seeking for quiet and restful escape without feeling isolated. Situated on the hill, just a few munutes drive from San Vincenzo and other attractions of this area, the farm has a lovely view over the sea. Our kids loved visiting the goat, donkeys and pony, spent hours on the playground and seemed to be very happy to enjoy the "free-range" lifestyle
Very homely atmosphere on the farm, lovely breakfasts with home-made pancakes and pastries, fantastic menu at the restaurant/osteria, large outdoor swimming pool and a kids' pool, big playground and a
and barbeque zone - everything I could think of for a family holiday was on the site. Plus, endless rows of olive trees running on the hills for morning walks - just for myself.
Spacious rooms, well-equipped kitchen, comfortable bathrooms, generously sized terraces - the accommodation was absolutely admirable. But most important, very caring and hospitable family, Serena and Fabrizio, who were always ready to help with any our needs and questions. Thank you very much, guys.
We had unforgettable time at Costa Etrusca and hope to come back one day.
