Sandy beaches and crystal clear water characterize the 12-kilometer stretch of beach known as Capalbio. Just north of the Lazio border, this picturesque part of Italy is actually in Tuscany, but it’s closer to Rome than it is Florence and therefore makes it an easy playground for Roman holidaymakers. Rugged and mostly untouched, there are many free public beaches and it’s also a haven for watersports lovers with many private areas dedicated to windsurfing and kitesurfing. The town center has retained its medieval look and features a number of historical markers like a fortress, a palace, churches, ancient walls, and frescoes.

Stay at the luxury country house, La Capalbiola for stunning panoramic views from the Argentario Coast towards the idyllic island of Giannutri. After your breakfast with a view, check out the beach in the warmer months and in shoulder seasons enjoy the asparagus or even truffle harvest or the Saturnia thermal springs only 30-minute drive away.
