A vantage point for Vedetta Townhouse, Rooms and Apartments: the main square and decumanus of the medieval village of Scarlino, set on a hill, ten minutes away from the Gulf of Follonica and its golden beaches and twenty minutes from Castiglione della Pescaia and Massa Marittima.

Gorgeous in all seasons, it boasts fine sand, crystal-clear sea and unspoiled nature, deep in a dense and evocative Mediterranean maquis that stretches all the way to the beach. For the sporty guests, the path behind the beach runs for several kilometers along the shoreline and offers stunning views. In Vetulonia, one of the most important cities of Etruria, about forty-five minutes from the facility, the earliest historical evidence dates back to the 11th century B.C.: prominent are the monumental tombs and the itineraries in the archaeological area.
