If you want to stay at an agriturismo, and want to be close to the sea at the same time, this is the perfect place to be. Located within a 5 minute drive to long open beaches north and south of San Vincenzo, Agriturismo Costa Etrusca offers an agriturismo atmosphere with a splendid view down to the cost line and the isle of Elba. We stayed at the agriturismo already several times the last years, and despite the fact that prices tend to increase at this location as well, we always enjoyed a wonderful and relaxing stay.
As opposed to some other guests who added some comments about their stay, we always experienced the owners friendly and helpful. Everytime we arrive we feel warmly welcome, are offered something to drink and accompanied to our apartment. We also know the cook -a very kind and friendly person as well. Our kids love this property with the big pool and the playground, and particularly the animals which occasionally pass by in front of our apartment. And despite the characteristics of an agriturismo, the property was always well maintained and kept clean by a very friendly Polish couple which aparently works on the campus during the summer season for several years already.
In the morning they offer a rich breakfast including fresh eggs, and different flavors of fresh bread, both sweet and salty. In the evenings, they open the restaurant which is open to guests from outside as well. Last year they even engaged a musician softly playing songs while guests were enjoying their dinner. Prices are rather high compared to other restaurants in the area, and unfortunately they don't offer sea food anymore, which they did in previous years. Nevertheless the atmosphere and the panoramic view compensate for this. During sunset we are able to appreciate nice Tuscan food and wines and are just a few steps away from our apartment!
So for us this place remains a thumbs up! And given the fact that we are going to meet some families next summer, which we have met there last summer already, makes me think were are not the only ones who think it's worth coming back...
