Make a holiday rental home or farmhouse in Caldana, Italy your home away from home

Caldana is a frazione (parish) of the larger town of Gavorrano, and 65km north-west of Grosseto, the capital of the province. Sitting 300 metres above sea level, Caldana is a typical Tuscan village, being small, friendly, traditional and dating back to medieval times. A great advantage of staying in Caldana is that you are so near to the coast, with the warm waters and sandy stretches just a few short kilometres away.

Things to do in Caldana, Italy

In keeping with many other hillside Tuscan towns and villages, Caldana has well preserved town walls that date back to medieval times. One of the most important buildings in the village is the Chiesa di San Biagio, the main church in the area, and also worth a look is the Oratory of St Anthony of Padua.

Caldana is small in size and as a result has a tiny population. The locals (who are known as 'zucchini') are friendly and always happy to help, always willing to point you in the direction of a recommended restaurant, bar or café with little prompting. There is also a bank and a few small shops in Caldana, so you do not need to venture outside of its confines in order to stock up your food supplies.

Caldana is renowned for its thermal springs – where you can relax or bathe outside even in the middle of winter, and two excellent golf courses can also be reached within half an hour by car. The use of a vehicle really is required to make the most of your stay in Caldana, as its rural nature means that public transport options in the region are somewhat limited.

Places to visit on holiday in Caldana, Italy

Caldana's administrative centre of Gavorrano (39km) can be reached in just over half an hour by car, and is a popular destination with foreign holidaymakers, especially during festival time. The town has well preserved its medieval status, and a visit to Gavorrano can almost feel like you have stepped back in time. If you have a day to spare, the Monte Argentario peninsula (111km) is also well worth a visit, as it manages to successfully combine historical attractions and more modern amenities.

Weather in Caldana, Italy

The weather in Caldana is typical of this part of Italy, with spring, summer and early autumn all especially nice times in which to visit. This is due to temperatures frequently exceeding 30C in the middle of the day, and relatively low rainfall. Rainfall increases from October onwards, but temperatures remain mild even in the middle of winter.

There are alternatives, and Florence Peretola Airport (FLR) is a similar distance from Caldana, giving you plenty of options when it comes to flying to Italy from the United Kingdom.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The house was comfortable and well-equipped. As we were three generations of the same family, the split accommodation (main house and dependance) suited us very well. Almost everything one could want was to be found, including toys for the children and kitchen equipment and consumables one would not usually expect. There were a few notable exceptions, eg no kettle, but when this was mentioned one was quickly provided. The few problems we encountered were dealt with very promptly by the owner. The gifts of local wine, olive oil and home-grown fruit and vegetables were much appreciated as was having herbs, chillis and seasonal fruits available in the garden. All in all we had a lovely holiday and were very pleased with our choice of villa. I just wish I could speak Italian!

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      We had a wonderful holiday at Casa Lisa. You feel you are away from it all, surrounded by nature and beautiful views - and at the same time you are just a 10 minute short walk (uphill) to the centre of Sassofortino, with a small Co-op, a baker, a few small shops and two very good local pizzerias. We really liked the village, it's relaxed and has very, very foreign few tourists. The farmhouse itself is great - we were a family of 4 and there was plenty of space. One of our most favourite things was sitting on the terrace for breakfast looking out across the valley - stunning! The pool is set down a small slope in the garden, you really feel away from it all, surrounded by the vines and trees - if you like nature, you'll love this. Mike also very kindly left us some provisions as we were arriving really late with young kids - we appreciated that. For any families with younger kids (ours were 6 and 9) you can get to stunning beaches in 40 mins up to an hour depending how far you want to go - the beaches we went to were shallow and very safe for kids (Punta Ala in particular). Massa Maritima, Sienna, and Montalcino were all great to visit. And also the waterpark at Follonica was really well organised and fun. The reasons we haven't given 5 stars (and these are just personal preferences) is that the only comfy chairs to sit on were tub chairs, and there is no sofa as such, through there are two day beds. During our stay the aircon wasn't working in the 2nd bedroom and there was some building work happening next door. None of these things really spoiled our enjoyment of Casa Lisa, the building work will be temporary and the aircon was due to be fixed. It would be difficult to find a better place to stay on a beautiful Tuscan hilltop, in such a glorious setting - we would definitely recommend.
