Castiglione della Pescaia: introduction

Castiglione della Pescaia Hotel

The sea and the Maremma. Castiglione della Pescaia is one of the most popular seaside resorts in the province of Grosseto. The name of this medieval coastal town, surrounded by the splendid natural landscapes of Tuscan Maremma and lapped by seas which have consistently been awarded the European Blue Flag, derives from its impressive 15th century Pisan-Aragon Castle (Castiglione), built on the outcropping of Monte Petriccio, and the Latin word for fishery (Pescaia), which recalls Castiglione della Pescaia's historic role as important fishing harbor.

Washed by the clean, warm waters of the Tyrrhenian sea, the sandy beaches of Castiglione will appeal to holiday makers of all ages; offering a choice of lively, fully equipped, bathing establishments and quiet, secluded beaches sheltered by coastal pine trees. Since the first tourists arrived on the Tuscan coast, Castiglione has been attracting a decidedly elite crowd. The Punta Ala fraction of Castiglione is particularly exclusive.

Punta Ala has one of the most modern and well equipped harbors in the whole of the Mediterranean (this is where Italy's "Luna Rossa" sail boat was manufactured), and its Golf Club is considered one of Italy's finest. Lying immediately behind the beaches, the thick pine forests are traversed by numerous bridleways, making the area ideal for horse riding. The night life of Castiglione is notoriously glamorous, and especially so during the summer months.
