Villa Trogolello is a charming farmhouse in a wooded valley near the hilltop village of Castagneto Carducci. The villa has been restored and furnished comfortably, with terracotta floors and beamed ceilings.
The swimming pool, located on a paved terrace above the house, enjoys panoramic views of the village, the countryside and the sea. There are sunbeds and deckchairs, and a pergola for shade.
The ground floor comprises a sitting room with fireplace, dining room; fully equipped kitchen which includes a fridge with separate freezer; bathroom with bath/shower; large covered terrace with table and chairs.  On the outer terrace there is a BBQ and at the side of the house a traditional wood-oven.
On the first floor there are 4 bedrooms – 2 with double beds and 2 with twin beds – and a bathroom with shower.  Linen, towels and pool towels are provided and changed once a week (for those staying more than a week).   A cook or extra cleaning can be booked in advance.
The nearest shops and restaurants are in Castagneto Carducci and Donoratico both less than 10 minutes by car or a fairly steep 20 minute walk along the unpaved road up to Castagneto Carducci (this walk is good exercise in daylight but not really recommended in the evening). Donoratico has two supermarkets, railway station, travel agent, etc.
The safe, sandy beach is approximately 6 km away at Marina di Castagneto on what is known as the Costa degli Etruschi, or Etruscan Coast. The villa is 2.6 km from the tarmac road, on a dirt road which is well maintained but not suitable for any particularly low cars.
Pisa Airport is 70 km away – it takes about 45 min to drive on a good motorway.   Florence is about one and a half hours drive – or there is the train. Villa Trogolello is ideal for those who enjoy the tranquility of the woods and countryside. The beaches, restaurants, etc. are just a short drive away.



Trogolello is ideal for a relaxing getaway with easy access to the coast and historical towns.
There is a large terrace with barbecue perfect for outdoor meals.

The owner lives in the semi-basement apartment.
However the pool and gardens are for the exclusive use of guests only.

Pool Info

A flight of steps leads up to the pool from where you have a specatcular view down across the valley with the sea in the distance. The pool is embraced on 3 sides by a paved terrace with sun loungers and a pergola. On the far side on a slightly lower level the woods that surround the property start.

The oval pool is ideal for relaxing while enjoying the view of the distant sea. At the pool area there are 6 sunbeds, 2 classic deckchairs, 2 plastic reclining chairs, and a table with 4 upright chairs under the shade.
It is open from the beginning of June to the end of September (weather permitting).

Pros Propriété située en pleine nature ,isolée,au calme dans la forêt, beau panorama, et non loin de la mer,
Point du chute idéal pour découvrir la toscane tout en étant près de la mer!Possibilité d'aller au vieux village par un sentier pédestre; ballades en forêt agréables depuis la maison
Cons Equipements de la cuisine désuets ,vieux ,sales,casseroles pas adaptées pour 8, maison sombre au RC, mériterait d'être rénovée, par rapport au prix payé!
Local attractions Au village de Castagneto Carduci ,très bonne pizzeria ,pizzas énormes et de bonne qualité, pour un prix correct; bonnes glaces pas chers ,bars à vins sympathiques pour l'apperétif.Plage agréable à 12 kms.

Pros The beautifully kept swimming pool - the jewel of the place - and 3 lanes wide
The location ( once you got there) was wonderful. it was so peaceful
The kitchen was well equipped, with a splendid fridge/freezer.
The shade on the terrace with the gentile breeze was sublime.
Mario - he is a real gem -he could not do too much for you.
Cons As two of the party were elderly, the 47 steps to the pool were intimidating. But it was like the staircase to heaven - wonderful when you got there. One of the two swam a mile each day. The long drive up to the house is not easy and we did not risk it at night, but it is worth the seclusion
Local attractions There are many good restaurants in both the two nearby villages - Bulgheri & Castagneto Carducci. These are two old villages, well worth a visit.

Pros The location, set in the hills around Castagneto Carducci, were amazing especially with the pool set higher up than the house overlooking the vineyards/woodland. Peaceful and remote but close enough to local towns for supermarket or eating out in the evening.

The house is spacious with ample room for seven of us in the party and enjoyed the lunch/evening meals on the outside seating areas.

The local contact, Mario, was extremely helpful and friendly and made us feel very welcome. Many thanks to him for all his help.
Cons Nothing specific to the propery itself but be very aware to take insect repellent / mosquito spray as they left us all with lots of bites (despite the house having the necessary mosquito netting in each room).
Local attractions A must is a visit to the lovely, quaint town of Castagneto Carducci with some great restaurants and local shops. Town of Donoratico has more restaurants and a couple of supermarkets that are easily accessible.

Pros location, amenities, pool, size of bedrooms, insect screens on all the windows
Cons being woken every morning by the local wood cutters
Local attractions populonia and Bratti were amazing, Balghari was also worth a visit. the local towns of Donoratico and St Vicenzo had plenty of resturants and bars. Casteghetto had some lovely resturants as well especially the two with the tables overlooking the valley.

Pros En principe on cherchait la tranquillité et par moment c'était bien le cas. Cependant, lors de notre visite nous avons eu certainement peu de chance car un trax faisait des travaux forestiers très proche de l'habitation avec bien sur le bruit que fait un tell engin et ce, durant 4 jours !.
Cons Nous trouvons le rapport qualité prix trop élevé pour les prestations : Certes tous ce qui est écrit existe belle et bien cependant pas selon des critères de standard actuel (vieux et en fin de vie voir inutilisable) et pour ce prix on s'attend à autre chose : il y a bien une piscine mais elle est en métal et semi hors-sol et très loin de la maison, il y a bien le wifi mais juste sur la terrasse. Il y bien une douche mais elle est entartrée etc....
Local attractions Restaurant campo alle Tane (www.ristorantecampoalletane.com) qui mérite plus que le détour mais qui n'était pas sur les références et le restaurant l'Olivia à Castagneto Carducci

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Viel Platz im Haus und im Garten, Ruhe, Nähe zu Meer und Sehenswürdigkeiten
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Sehr gut
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Wasser des Pools ist leider gekippt - Es wurde aber sofort per Mail darauf eingegangen und uns ein finanzieller Abschlag gemacht
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen?

The problem with the swimming pool filter was fixed as soon as To Tuscany were made aware of it. It is not an ongoing problem.
