Valdicecina an easily accessible area which is quite charming with a combination of history, culture and excellent cuisine. Castelnuovo Val di Cecina is a small medieval village in the heart of Tuscany, south of Pisa, on the border between the provinces of Pisa, Siena and Grosseto. The town has ancient origins dating back to the thirteenth century and the village has preserved the ancient character and is full of antique features. The antique village is unique and is famed for its shape as a bunch of grapes, with the layout still that of a medieval town, built in sandstone, with calm little lanes, pretty chapels and sweet little piazzas. From the medieval part of Castelnuovo, the town streets are flanked with small shops and local cafes, a bank and a post office. Modern life and amenities are all within an easy stroll.
The countryside extends from the mountains to the east, through the vineyards gently terraced on the low hills and down to the Mediterranean scrub with pine woods and brooms to the west. The golden hills are planted with orchards, vineyards and olive groves. There are hot thermal springs with spa baths in little villages, areas of cooler woodland to stroll through and natural vents gently puff their steam from the geothermic activity through the hillsides. It is possible to take a guided tour to fully discover this unique countryside. Castelnuovo is the place to be for nature enthusiasts: from the town, there is a variety of different nature trails through enchanting historic sites, such as a bridge crossing the Pavone torrent or the scenic vista of the Val di Cornia and the Gulf of Piombino. The natural hot waters of the region are piped to the little towns and villages so the homes are heated virtually free of charge with this green energy.
The whole of Tuscany is on your doorstep. You are in easy reach of the famous hilltop towns of Volterra and San Gimignano, just 30-40 mins to the coast and there are wonderful day trips to be had in Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Siena. The international airport at Pisa is within an hour’s drive.
