Casanuova is a simple big old farmhouse at the Etruscan coast of Tuscany . The house is very spacious,the bathrooms and some corners of the house do need a "facelift" in the close future , the kitchen is very well equipped , the garden huge and beautifully with big trees and and a nice outside barbecue place. If you travel with teenagers , as we did , make sure they have some books to read and games to play , as there is no Wifi . The beach is very close , max. 10 minutes by car . A helping hand , which shows up amost every day , is a nice on top gift . Alessio is a very good host , with every issue we had , he react within under an hour and solved the problems immediately. The area around Casanueva with the villages of Campilia Marritima , Suvereto und Populonia is marvelous and great for sightseeing and very good restaurants. As Casanuova is not surrounded by direct neighbours , you can hear loud music or celebrating big parties every night . You will not molest anyone .
We rented Alessio's house as a base for an extended family vacation - three generations - in July. The house itself is such located that you would need a car for shopping etc. That said, it was also very quiet and ideal for our purpose. The house itself is true to the pictures and we will describe it as rustic. The kitchen was well equipped and it was the hub of our activities. The nearby beach, named Baratti - say 10 minutes by car - was high quality and ideal for small kids. Our 4 year old family member spent so much time in the water that we suspected she had developed gills. You can rent umbrellas and beds at the beach. The people working there were very friendly. We were at the house when the heatwave struck southern Europe. While it was hot during the day, it was no problem to sleep during the night as temperature inside was comfortable and it was airy. We had three bathrooms and all were clean, inviting and functioning 100 % which was essential to us. Given that we had small children amongst us, we appreciated that there was a gate at the top of the stairs protecting mishaps. We had all our major meals outside and the kids could roam freely while the adults were enjoying the warm Italian nights. The stay was a huge success for us.
Alessio had a lovely home that was very well organized with all the listed commodities. The house was well situated close to the beach and was the perfect place for quiet and rest for the family. The front lawn is great and the kids loved playing outside. The barbecue was a treat and we enjoyed cooking at night by the grill. We would definitely return to the house at another time. Alessio had a lovely cleaner Elisa who was very tidy and kept everything in perfect order each day which was a nice bonus. If they have internet then I would stay for more extended period of time as one could work and rest from there perfectly. This is well recommended to those who wish to sample the best part of Maremma Countryside close to the beach.
