You can enjoy the best of both worlds at the laid-back resort of Donoratico – lazy days on the golden sandy beaches of the nearby Etruscan coast, and fascinating days out exploring the beautiful scenery and hill towns just inland. Donoratico is located on an olive grove and vineyard covered plain between the sea and the mountains, offering peace and tranquillity whilst being easily accessed via the motorway from Pisa and Livorno to the north, and Grossetto and Rome to the south. Just a short drive away from the beach and resort of Marina di Castagneto, Donoratico offers a small selection of shops, restaurants and bars, including three supermarkets. The town also has a train station which can be a cost-effective and relaxing way to visit historic Tuscan cities such as Pisa and Florence. Inland from Donoratico, the typical Tuscan hill town of Castagneto Carducci is just a 10 minute drive away, where traditional restaurants provide the perfect vantage point for watching dramatic sunsets over the coastal plain and out across the Ligurian Sea.
