Make a holiday rental home or villa in Punta Ala, Italy your home away from home

Punta Ala (formerly known as Punta Troia) is an upmarket area of the town of Castiglione della Pescaia in the Grosseto province of Tuscany, Italy. Punta Ala is one of the most popular destinations in this part of the country, and it is easy to see why – as it is home to some of the area's best beaches, fantastic and unspoilt scenery, and provides visitors with panoramic sea views out from its position on a promontory jetting out into the Tyrrenhian Sea.

Things to do in Punta Ala, Italy

Since the 1970's Punta Ala has developed considerably, and is now a destination that caters well for tourists, but still does not become overrun with them. The beaches are the main attraction, but the town also has modern amenities, as well as a number of monuments and more historical attractions.

Punta Ala marks the start of a long sandy stretch of beach that runs all the way to Marina di Grosseto, some 20km south-east around the coast. The beach makes for good sunbathing and relaxing, especially during summer months, when the warm waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea can also be enjoyed for their swimming opportunities.

Punta Ala is also a great destination for a golfing holiday, with the nearby Golf Club Punta Ala offering 18 excellent holes amongst some stunning scenery. The whole resort is relatively upmarket, with a number of luxury yachts to be found in the marina and a selection of high-class accommodation options.

Very nice, clean and tidy, light and airy. Good location.

4 of 5
Appartment complex was easy to find from owners direct map and final directions from the actual owners. Laura was very helpful, especially helpful was communicating via text, and in English, which made life very easy. Appartment was nice airy and light. We didn't cook but everything was there should you want to. However; no kettle!! Needs a kettle. Sofa bed was very comfy, however it would of been a nice touch if they correct sheets/ bedding were left out ready to make as it took us a while to root through the stack of bedding in the cupboards to find the right sheets. Location was ideal - nice and quiet yet a two minute walk from a lovely beach, or five to the marina. Parking not allowed within the complex, understandable as it would be very crowded, but never a problem to get parked on the road by the gate. Overall very good. We will return to Punta Ala and wouldn't hesitate to stay in that appartment again.

Amazing experience!

5 of 5
We stayed in Casa Mariniello for one month: the location in Punta Ala ,“La Molletta” area, is amazing, the typical Tuscany coast woods a few steps from the clear Mediterranean sea. Quiet and peace far from crowd but close to the only tiny mall (wonderful Toppi bakery, grocery store and take away). The house has a lovely interior decoration and furniture, very comfortable bedrooms (except for the one with 2 bunk beds) with closets and also nice bathrooms (one with tub and one with shower). Inside you'll find everything you need, washing products, bed linen, towels, kitchen tools (a lot) and tablecloths...dishwasher and washing machine. It is surrounded by a big garden with BBQ. We spent a wonderful family time with our dog Luna. The only default is the kitchen, definitely needs an upgrade. A special thanks to DONATELLA, who welcomes you with a little Tuscany taste and is always available and amazingly kind, and to Valentina from the administration.
