The building and gardens are nice but the triple apartment was really small and too basic. The second bedroom was so small that you cannot close the door, it is blocked by the bed. The leaving room is quite dark, no terrace, to eat in the garden there are stairs, not comfortable to bring food up and down. For the kitchen you have to buy tools to clean and furniture's are essential. Bathroom is small, especially shower. To bring bagagges from parking to apartments you have to go trough a path with nice but uncomfortable small stones: a passerelle or trolley would help. You hear the noise of the nearby freeway traffic, especially at night. The countryside is beautiful, especially Bolgheri. You need a car for this apartment hotel, shops and beaches are not at walking distance. Maybe better to ask the position of the apartment at reservation, some have access to the garden.

I guess these guys are Imminently expecting the next ice age as each room has a heater. If like me you enjoy retreating to your room for some welcome cooling down in the 30 degree heat then i think you might be very disappointed. It gets even warmer in the night as you need to close the main door to prevent the mosquitos from eating you alive. The beds have old matresses and if you desire a spring lodged in your splean for the night then you are in luck. The staff on the whole appear partially interested in helping you but dont expect any real efficiency as the pace of life here would be embarrasing even if you were a snail. To some up, pool is the best feature, location means a car is essential, staff mediocore, rooms are dated and uncomfortable, grounds are well maintained, price is expensive for what you get. Would only consider returning during the next ice age

At first, if you decide to stay there and go to the beach, mind that you will need a transportation. there are about 4 km to the nearest accesible beach, in fact the main beach of Castagneto Carducci. We used our bicycles, but my wife felt from her byke on the descend from the bridge that cross over the highway and the pediatrician at the medical point refused to offer first aid and didn't even bother to indicate us that in the same courtyard were Red Cross volunteers. Lucky that we meet them. Nice gals and guy, those volunteers. I don't even know the name of those 2 women and a man that helped as much as they could. Thank you guys, your work was just fine! About Casale Etrusco, again: the apartment we stayed was just near the reception area. Excepting that sometimes the internet worked in our room (usually it work only at reception), that was the only one advantage. The apartment isn't so big, but we are just a couple and a 14 years child, so we had enough room there. Clean enough, but with horrible pillows! My wife used her inflatable beach pillow to sleep and i had serious pains on my neck because of it. The pool is large enough, but the area surrounding it seems a little too small, because of the hedge, planted too close. Almost entire area of Casale Etrusco is green and nice and almost every apartment has his own "courtyard" surrounded by a hedge, excepting the apartments at reception area. Our kitchen had all we needed, maybe the heater for hot water could be bigger, the warm water was never enough showering 3 persons one after another. I was the last every time and every time I finished my shower with cold water. I have to mention the smell of not airy space, like we were the first users of that apartment after a very long time. We tried to get rid of it, not succeeded. There are 2 grills available on the back of the courtyard, so you can count on your own cooking if you want. There are 2 major shops, at 3 km distance, in Donoratico. The personnel is very kind and you can see their efforts to please. I would specially mention the receptionist, a very nice lady. Maybe if she would have 2-3 more persons to help her, the situation could change. Indeed, there is a train line at about 200 m and also the highway, but we weren't disturbed by that, we didn't even hear them. Frankly I will return there only in a large group of friends, to enjoy the green space, the pool and the isolated area. Only with the family, the whole complex seems like a sleeping place, more than anything else.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the ground floor with its own courtyard. Better on the back of the complex.

The bathroom was not very clean and too small for "normal" people, first night there was one pillow short and no toilet paper in the bathroom. Nice environment, with good restaurants. We stayed only 2 days, too expensive for what you get.

We stayed in one of the apartments for a week. We found the place had an ideal location for sightseeing and relaxing. It is true, that you can hear the nearby road, however it did not bother us in any way. The service was good, and the overall atmosphere very pleasant.
