All villas of La Quercia have access to a private, fenced and untouched sand dune beach area which is located 16km away, North of Marina di Castagneto, Donoratico. The area is a natural coastal botanical garden which guests have access to. Here guests can use the simple picnic tables and chairs, as well as a shower. The owners can also provide beach umbrellas to take to the area.

The property La Quercia is composed of 3 apartments, two of which can be converted by means of a connecting door, into a larger apartment on the ground floor, (Erica + Fresia = Gardenia), and Villa Il Castagno.

Gardenia is a coastal, Tuscan villa composed of two intercommunicating apartments (Erica and Fresia) on the ground floor of the property La Quercia. Outside, in the shady garden there are two gazebos with marble topped tables and surrounded by plenty of comfortable, cushioned chairs.

Inside the living area is a long, open plan room with an arch in the middle. Here there are wooden doors that open up the entire length of the wall, allowing passage from one apartment to the other. On either side there is a wooden three person sofa which has cushions for comfort.

While at both ends of the long room is a kitchen equipped with a gas oven, gas hobs, and a fridge with separate freezer compartment. Next to the two cooking areas there is a table which can seat up to 6 people. 

There are two identical bedrooms. Each has a double bed with a wooden headboard and wooden wardrobe. In both rooms there is also a chest of drawers and a single bed which can be used for a child or to make the bedroom into a twin room. Both bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with showers.

Wir (2 Erw. 2 Kinder, 5+5 J) verbrachten hier drei herrliche Urlaubswochen. Die Schlüsselübergabe klappte reibungslos; das Haus war penibel gesäubert. Das Anwesen ist zudem wunderschön gelegen: Aus den Bergen über Marina di Castagnetto gelang man über eine serpentinenreiche Straße in ca. 25 min an den Strand. Die höhere Lage sorgt dafür, dass die Temperatur ein paar Grad geringer ist als im Badeort selbst. Im toskanischen Sommer ist das immer noch mehr als ausreichend. Eine tolle Empfehlung und Gegenstand ständiger Sehnsucht für unsere Mädels war zudem der in Marina gelegene Freizeitpark. Ein besonderer Dank und Gruß gilt zudem dem ebenso herzlichen wie unaufdringlichen Gastgeber Vito Moscardini.
