PERFECT FOR SAFE HOLIDAYS. Our little place, Il Cubetto, was inaugurated with the 2020 season. It is particularly distinctive because of its absolute exclusivity: only two studio apartments within our 7000 sqm of garden planted with many fruit trees, with great attention to any detail. Our guests, a maximum of two per studio apartment, have the use of a salt-water infinity swimming pool overlooking the valley. Depending on the car they drive, they can park next to the cottage or beside the road.

The space
The location looks out over the typically Tuscan landscape of the Livorno hills, dotted with cypresses and maritime pines, and lets our guests enjoy a truly rare sense of peace and freedom. The cottage, called 'Il Cubetto', is built of wood, with internal walls in tone-on-tone sandblasted colors. It has a generously-sized bathroom with a large and comfortable walk-in shower, fully equipped kitchen, wifi and air conditioning. Also available (at an extra fee) is an open-air hot tub. For stays longer than 7 nights we carry out periodic cleaning and linen change also during your stay, and not only at its end. No additional costs are charged for cleaning.

Our trees produce some fruit practically in every season. Some are old and rare species that we are trying to preserve. The fruit and products of the garden, as well as the flowers in the pictures that you see in the photo-gallery, come from our garden, from the vegetable garden or the immediate neighborhood, and are also available to our guests.

Nihat is a professional barman who graduated from the European Bartender School in Kos. He is looking forward to delighting you with his excellent cocktails (not included). Mariaclotilde will be happy to supply your "galley" with typical breakfasts in the style you like, using only high-quality, zero-kilometer products (not included).

For families, or groups of friends, it is possible to rent the entire cottage, i.e. both studios, which have a communicating door normally closed but which can be opened and used when necessary. If you are interested in, please look in AirBnB for "Il Cubetto, nothing short of special..." and put 4 in the number of persons.

Other things to note
The kitchen is equipped with dishes and pots but not with cleaning stuff such as sponges and detergents.

The tourist tax for private hosting applied by the Municipality of Rosignano is 0.50 euros per person per night (except for changes not yet communicated for the year 2021). This tax will be collected through AirBnB, with a separate payment from that of the rent. It will be requested with an email that will arrive in the week preceding the day of check-in.

We are in the countryside, and at night the silence is almost total. Which implies that any noise - our dogs doing their job as "guardians" or the passage of some wild animal, for example - may be perceived a little more clearly than in places where normally there is more noise.

For owners of particularly large or particularly low cars: the road that leads directly to the Cubetto is a dirt road. It has also been traveled by vans and large vehicles without problems, but for those who prefer it is always possible to park beside the main road, where we have a dedicated space, and reach the cottage by crossing the garden.

PLEASE NOTE:
we will be happy to provide some extras to supply our guest’s “galley” and for their relax, NOT INCLUDED in the studio flat rent:
BREAKFAST (three different styles)
BAR
HOT-TUB
All the extra need to be refunded in cash (we accept euros and pounds) or by a PayPal payment.

Location

Cafaggio, Toscana, Italy

We are located in the Parco delle Colline Livornesi (Livorno Hill Park), also called “L’isola che non c’è”, the italian name for Peter Pan’s Neverland (The island that does not exist). This name is due to its origins as a fossil island that became joined to the mainland in a relatively recent geological period. More precisely, we are in the area called Parco Culturale di Camaiano (Camaiano Cultural Park).

The nearest sea can be reached 15 minutes away by car at Castiglioncello, famous for its crystal-clear water and Art Nouveau (Liberty) architecture. However, going a little further down along the coast, you get to magical places such as the Gulf of Baratti, with its nature reserve and Etruscan remains, or the long beaches of fine sand in Marina di Castagneto and San Vincenzo; or even enchanting places such as the beach of Torre Mozza, dominated by the ancient watchtower against the Saracens who plunges directly into the sea, or that of Cala Violina, set in a nature reserve that slopes from marittime pine forest to Mediterranean scrub and where the sand, made up of tiny grains of quartz, “plays” in a way similar to a violin when you walk on it in the most quiet and silent days. All of these beaches have been awarded the Blue Flag for water quality.


The area is dotted with delightful medieval villages, with abbeys, hermitages and fortresses. Here you will find typical products and traditional Tuscan country cuisine of the land that are nothing short of exceptional. When by the sea, you can eat freshly-caught fish cooked in many different styles - for example the famous Cacciucco alla livornese. This is an area that is home to many officially recognized (DOC) specialty wines and olive oils. We are located 30 minutes from world-famous wine-growing areas - where the tastings and food and wine tours are unmissable - such as around the beautiful village of Bolgheri.

In just forty minutes you can reach the Thermarium of Venturina, the ancient Etruscan Baths that today are enclosed in a beautiful warm lake with whose wellness-giving waters are surrounded by ancient buildings. These Baths are also famous for their unparalleled relaxation course in the Calidarium. Baths and the Middle Ages are also the leitmotiv of Sassetta, 45 minutes from us, a splendid village perched on a rock and surrounded by chestnut and oak woods between which the thermal waters flow before to be channeled into "La Cerreta", a biodynamic system of 75 hectares surrounded by the Mediterranean scrub.

Pisa, with the international airport and its famous Leaning Tower, is 45 minutes by road. Florence is one and a half hours away, the famous Volterra at 50 mins and the beautiful city of Siena is less than a two-hour drive. However, much closer, in the local area, there are many other sights to visit. For example, there is the Archaeological Mines Park of San Silvestro, whose paths wind through museums, mining galleries, a thousand-year-old medieval village of miners and metal foundries, together with trails of historical, archaeological, geological and naturalistic interest, or the Biancane Geothermal Park where all the deep power of the earth is expressed in gysers, fumaroles and hot waters that also give rise to bathing spas; or Livorno itself, an ancient port city with various cultures and curiosities, whose steep cliffs hide “pearls” almost unknown like the ancient basins carved into the rock that some believe to be Roman pools.

From spring to autumn, there are many cultural, gastronomic and musical festivals in the beautiful old town.

Do not miss the opportunity to stay in a truly special place at prices that are unbelievable for such exclusive accommodation in this area of Tuscany

During your stay
We live at the other end of the land where Il Cubetto is located, so we are always there for check-in, check-out or any need of our guests.

We have four dogs and some cats, all of them with good character. They mostly live in an area of the garden separate from the one around Il Cubetto, but some of them are “free spirits” and may decide to come and pamper our guests. For this reason we preferably welcome animal friendly people and, if accompanied by their dog, we need the certainty that this is not a "cat hunter"!
