  • Tout d'abord Olimpia est une hôte très sympathique car nous sommes arrivés 1 heure plus tard que prévu et elle nous a attendu avec patience. La maison est tout à fait charmante et l'emplacement est parfait. Un petit truc pour trouver plus facilement le stationnement suivre les indications pour le restaurant "La Fortessa".
    Ce fût une expérience magnifique!! ;):)

  • Wir haben das Haus wie beschrieben vorgefunden: eine großzügige Wohnung, ausgestattet mit allem, was man braucht. Die Waschmaschine haben wir gerne genutzt für alles, was am Strand dabei war. Trotz der zentralen Lage mitten in der Altstadt, ist die Wohnung ruhig.
    Im Hochsommer (Tagestemperaturen bis 43 Grad) bleibt es auch nachts sehr warm, so dass es auch in der Wohnung warm ist.

    Olimpia war für uns immer erreichbar und hat alle unsere Fragen und Wünsche beantwortet und ermöglicht. Sie ist eine sehr freundliche, offene und kommunikative Gastgeberin.

  • We had a good time staying at Olympia´s house. The place is very spacious and perfect located. The communication with Olympia was easy, she gave good tips for the area and very kindly lend her beach umbrella to us! During the hotest days in July it´s hot in the house, in the night it cools down, and the fan helped us a lot. For a beach holiday I would recommend it!

  • My boyfriend and I had a great stay at Olimpia's home in Castiglione della Pescaia. The house is simply beautiful, bed very comfortable, and the location could not be better. Olimpia was a friendly host, and very understanding when our arrival was delayed by three hours due to the unreliable bus system (more about that in a bit). She offered good restaurant recommendations, which we took up.

    The ONLY minus for our entire stay at her home was loud music at night from the wine bar around the corner. Posto Pubblico plays very good but loud music until about midnight, then they turn down the volume a little. Most nights we were so tired after long days at the beach that we were able to fall asleep despite the music, but on Saturday night it seemed to be particularly loud (and we had to get up early to catch a train), so it was annoying.

    About the bus system, having done quite a bit of research, we can say that the best way to get to Castiglione by bus is from Grosseto. Only a few buses depart from Follonica to Castiglione each day. There is a bus schedule online, but it did not work when we accessed it. When we arrived at the Grosseto bus station (which is right in front of the train station), we bought a Eur2.60 ticket in the booth and were told the bus (No. 14) left at a certain time. As it turns out, it left earlier and we missed it. Another bus station employee said it was at another time, and it wasn't. Finally, we just started asking every bus driver whether they went to Castiglione (because it was not written on the front of the bus), and found our bus that way after about an hour. On the way back, it was easy, and the bus departed at the time and place quoted to us by the tourist information office.

    The beach at Castiglione was excellent. One day we took free bicycles from the tourist information office and went to the beach on the other side of the bridge that Olimpia recommended. But most of the time we went to the beaches nearest the house. There is a small public strip where you can bring your own umbrella, towels, lounge chair, etc., but we mostly went to the places where you could rent them. An umbrella and two lounge chairs cost Eur15-25 to rent for the day at those places.

    Response from Olimpia:

    TO ALL THE POTENTIAL GUESTS : please kindly note that, after what Amanda reported about the loud music at the posto pubblico, I called the police to check and report the unfortunate and most unpleaseant accident (and absolutely NEW to me: infact, that was the first time in years that the people of the posto publico had the music so loud to apparently disturb the sleep of the residents)....it never happened before! It has always been a very nice place in a great location indeed, where it was nice to have a glass of wine, eat good food while a soft gentle jazz music was playing, and still is!!! Anyway,I would like to underline that, thanks to the police that is monitoring every night, the music is not disturbing and that the MINUS to my house that Amanda kindly referred to has been ELIMINATED!!it is important for me that potential guests don't think that my house is close to a noisy disco that puts disco music up all night, because this is definetly not the case! ;) Thank you for your nice attention and wait for you in Castiglione!!!

  • Casetta deliziosa, curata in ogni particolare in un incantevole borgo medievale.
    A piedi si raggiungono chilometri di spiagge libere a ridosso della macchia mediterranea.
    Olimpia e' stata fin da subito gentile e estremamente disponibile.
    La casa, pulitissima, era fornita di tutto il necessario per un comodo soggiorno, incluse informazioni dettagliate sui dintorni e ottimi consigli su cosa vedere e dove mangiare. Altamente consigliata!
