The highlight of Le Dune A is its great location in the pinewoods of the seaside resort of Marina di Castagneto just 300m from the beach and close to the town, its amenities, bars and restaurants. The apartment is on the first floor of a typical seaside house, and has its own terrace with gazebo, table and chairs and barbeque perfect for relaxing evenings dining al fresco.
The seaside house of Villa le Dune is divided into just four apartments each with their own patio or terrace and private parking area. Le Dune A situated on the first floor of the house, has its accesses both from the front and rear either via steps from the grounds leading up to the terrace then into the kitchen or via one step from the garden into the living room.
The apartment itself is simply furnished as are most beach houses in the area and features pine furniture. The living room consists of a sitting area with settees (one of which converts into a double bed on request), armchairs, television, dining area with table, chairs and fireplace and there is a separate kitchen. A corridor leads to the three bedrooms, one with bunk beds, another with double and single bed and ensuite shower room and the third with a double bed. The biggest bathroom is at the end of the corridor. There is a sofa bed in the corridor which can convert to two extra single beds if required.
The apartment has its own large terrace which is furnished with table and sofas, gazebo and 4 deckchairs, a lovely spot for relaxing or eating al fresco with the scent of the pine trees and the sounds of crickets chirping all around. In the garden there is a barbeque and handy outside shower with both hot and cold water.
A pleasant walk through the lanes of the pinewoods leads to a lovely stretch of beach just 300m away and there are beach facilities close by where sunbeds and umbrellas are available for hire. The little town of Marina di Castagneto is accessible on foot and has good selection of restaurants, bars and shops running the length of the resort and along on the seafront. The owners put at guests disposal a private area of sand dunes to the north of the resort where there is a fenced botanical area with Mediterranean dune plants and flowers.
Although its tempting to spend lazy days just sunbathing on the beach and swimming in the azure Mediterranean sea, there is plenty more to see and do in the area. Within easy driving distance there are many pretty local hill towns to visit, such as Castagneto Carducci, Sassetta, and Bolgheri to name but a few, as well as nature parks and vineyards.
The beautiful bay of Baratti overlooked by the interesting historical town of Populonia is well worth a visit and further inland San Gimignano, Volterra and Siena are wonderful days out.
Even the Island of Elba is easily accessible via the ferry port just half an hours drive away and for the little ones close by is the Cavallino Matto theme park and the Acqua village water park with swimming pools and slides is at Cecina just 15 minutes drive away.
