Cernaia is a pretty collection of villas just a few minutes drive from the Mediterranean coast, in the Maremma area of Southern Tuscany. The location is ideal to enjoy the coast and also the Brunnello wine area around Montalcino which is only 1 hour drive away.

The well maintained, sunny gardens around the villas are graced by palm trees on manicured lawns criss-crossed with paths towards the two swimming pools.

At the property there is covered parking for the residents. The villas make a semi circle around the pool area. Each has its own garden which overlooks the grounds and then onto the fields around the property and the rolling hills beyond. On the horizon to the east you can make out the Monte Agentario and on clear days also Isola del Giglio.

At this property there is a bread delivery service available all year

The swimming pool is located in the centre of Cernaia. It is encircled by the independent villas on 3 sides while the fourth is open onto the fields that surround the property. Between the pool area and the villas there is a pretty park area creating a distance of about 50meters between the pool area and the villas.

The pool area consists of two swimming pools, a large pool and a children’s pool. Around the pools there are gazebos and sun beds.
The large pool is 7x12 meters and 0.80 to 1.40 meters deep. The children’s pool is 5x7 meters and 0.80 meters deep. Both are open from May to October.

The sea
In about 6.5km you arrive at the Marina di Grosseto which has wide sandy beaches with typical Italian ’baths’ which are areas of the beach set up with umbrellas and sun beds that you can use for a daily fee. Otherwise you can go to the free part of the beach.
A good beaches are also found around Castiglione della Pescaia, which is a pretty recreational port town. Here there are both beaches with the ’baths’ and also free beaches. When you visit this little town it is worth stopping to buy some fish from the local fishermen who sell their fish along the walkway around the port.
For a rocky beach you have to go slightly further north of Castiglione della Pescaia to Le Rocchette.

In the Maremma area there are several other activities, these include horse riding, kite surfing, wind surfing and scuba diving.
Scuba diving can be organised from Castiglione della Pescaia, Porto Santo Stefano or Porto Ercole. Popular dive sites include the Argentario, Isola Gianutri and Isola del Giglio. For more information on diving centers visit: http://www.diveitaly.com.

Die Anlage war klein sauber und sehr überschaubar. In den Abendstunden war es ruhig und sehr erholsam, anders als man es von Italien kennt. Der Pool und die Grundstücke der einzelnen Appartments waren getrennt voneinander und gerade mit kleinen Kindern kann man sich gut entspannen. Größere Kinder ab 5 können sich gut beschäftigen und man braucht keine Angst haben da alles eingezäunt ist. Es war alles sauber und auch gut möbliert. Wir waren positiv überrascht hatten weniger Komfort erwartet und viel mehr bekommen.
