Holiday house - IL Casettino is near the small village of Radicondoli. It is a medieval village, whose origins date back to very ancient times, in fact the first archaeological traces date back to the Etruscan period. Its appearance has been preserved almost unchanged over time, both in the urban structure and in the landscape.
Radicondoli is located in a strategic position that allows you to quickly reach the main art cities of Tuscany: Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Volterra, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni. For those who love art, then a must is the impressive Basilica of San Galgano, which thanks to its special acoustics, is home to numerous classical music concerts.
A short distance from Radicondoli are also the Chianti vineyards and attractive seaside resorts on the Tyrrhenian coast, including: Follonica, Castiglione della Pescaia, the Etruscan Gulf of Baratti, just to name a few.
Also noteworthy is the ability to reach, via the port of Piombino, Elba Island, which together with the other islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, is part of the largest Europe Marine Park, the largest protected area of European seas. The park is characterized by a great variety of habitats populated by different forms of life.From the beaches of the Elba to the rocky cliffs of the western Capraia, a myriad of plant and animal species live in every corner of one of the most fascinating natural environments: the sea.
For those who want to dive into the past, with all its history, there is the opportunity to walk (or drive) on the Via Francigena. It represents another great wealth that belongs to this territory, in fact the Francigena has been declared by the Council of Europe Major Cultural Route, which crosses Britain, France, Switzerland, Italy to the Vatican State. It was launched by the Longobards and later incorporated into a pilgrimage route. In Tuscany, it crosses the province of Massa Carrara, Pisa, Lucca, Florence and Siena. The point of connection to the Via Francigena, closer to Radicondoli is near Monteriggioni, Abbadi Isola and leads to Siena.
For those who want to perform physical care, but also regain their physical fitness, their beauty, the ideal is to spend a day of relaxation and pleasure at the Spa of Petriolo (40 minute drive) or at the Baths of St. John in Rapolano Terme (1 hour drive) surrounded by wild nature.
