My Route du Bonheur

My Route du Bonheur in Tuscany… from the inland to the coast

"Originally from Sicily, our family arrived in Tuscany in the late 1960s. This move transported us into an entirely different culture, a different land. In spite of the unfamiliar surroundings, it was clear that the region would become our home. We never left. That’s because the south of Tuscany boasts sublime villages, springs that were already exploited in Roman times, olive groves, lagoons, sheer cliffs, creeks and islands…"

Puccini Festival, Torre del Lago

Puccini Festival, Torre del Lago

The only festival in the world dedicated to the composer of Madame Butterfly, the Puccini Festival brings opera lovers together in the countryside that so inspired the musician. Giacomo Puccini long lived in Torre del Lago, where he settled with Elvira, the mistress who became his wife. Every year since 1930 in July and August, the greatest opera stars can be found on the outdoor stage of the Grand Théâtre, performing his greatest creations: Turandot, Manon Lescaut, La Bohème, etc.

Beaches and shops in Forte dei Marmi

Beaches and shops in Forte dei Marmi

Along five miles of sandy beach, the colourful booths of Forte dei Marmi are one of the postcard perfect images of seaside Tuscany. Here, visitors can enjoy the waves of the Tyrrhenian Sea in the shade of palms trees. This former fishing village has become a resort where the clientele is both chic and trendy, and is known for its luxury brands and rich antique market almost as well as for its fine sand. In the evening, this small town comes alive with the rhythm of restaurants and later, nightclubs featuring the best DJs in the country.

Relais Borgo Santo Pietro

Chiusdino (Siena) - Italy

Hotel and restaurant in the country. A large stone-built house at the end of a drive lined with Cypress trees, rolling hills for as far as the eye can see, a garden stocked with different species and fragrances – this is the Tuscany of our dreams. It is sheer delight to stroll between the flower beds, and the infinity pool offers stunning views over the valley. The stone walls, that once housed a staging post for pilgrims, have retained their peacefulness, but the décor has been enlivened by antique furniture and murals, which gleam in the light of crystal chandeliers. As in the past, the garden provides aromatic herbs and vegetables and the bees offer honey from the flowers on the grounds. ... Learn moreless

Golf course at Punta Ala

Golf course at Punta Ala

Opened in 1964, this 6168-metre-long eighteen-hole course (Par 72) is without a doubt one of the finest in Italy! Above the sea, the course meanders between oaks and pines, strawberry trees and bushes. The setting is the magnificent Maremma in Tuscany, where scrubland borders the sea. Play a few holes on its natural contours before enjoying the sunset over the water.

The Orbetello lagoon

The Orbetello lagoon

This is a paradise for bird watchers. Managed by the WWF, the Orbetello lagoon is an exceptional site where you can observe nearly two hundred different species of birds, including ospreys, herons and flamingos. In the evenings, you can watch more magnificent sunsets over the lagoon and Monte Argentario. To see as many birds as possible, opt for a visit to the lagoon between September and April.

The Palio Marinaro of Castiglione della Pescaia

Another picturesque seaside town: the silhouette of the huge Aragonese Castle towers over this pretty village with its narrow backstreets. Below, the azure sea is bordered by sandy beaches. In August you can attend the races during Palio Marinaro, a festival that features teams of local fishermen who compete against each other in small boats. Head to the quays of the little port to take part in this amazing festival.
