Castiglione della Pescaia (Tuscany)

Castiglione della Pescaia is an ancient seaside town in the province of Grosseto, in Tuscany, central Italy. The modern city grew around a medieval fortress and a large fishery, from which it acquired its designation. Today Castiglione is a tourist destination thanks to its beaches, its fortress and the natural reserve Diaccia Botrona, a swampy humid environment whose wildlife include flamingoes, mallards and ducks. In 2014 it ranked 4th among the most visited destinations in Tuscany, with approximately 1.3 million tourist arrivals, only preceded by Florence, Pisa and Montecatini Terme. In 2015 Castiglione's sea was nominated as Italy's best sea by the national non-governmental environmentalist organization Legambiente.

What others are saying about Tuscany

Flying Freehold: Does anyone have any experience of purchasing a freehold apartment in an Italian village, where the situation is that the property is freehold, and above another owner's property?

Hi! I know it's been a long time since the post, but I am hoping you will be able to help me. I am currently looking for property to buy near Impruneta, Tuscany.

We have bought a house in Tuscany, rented an apartment to move into while we work on the house, and will be driving over at the beginning of November with our dogs to start our new life.
