We spent two fantastic weeks at the Agriturismo Costa Etrusca. The place is absolutely perfect : a wonderful scenery with a spectacular view over the sea and the islands, a beautiful garden with a nice swimming pool, delicious breakfast in the morning, a good restaurant and very friendly and helpful owners! We can't imagine a better place to spend relaxing family holidays in Tuscany . We hope we will come back one day!
