2nd time to visit Italy in 3 yrs & 2nd time to stay at Pieve di Caminino. After enjoying 3 wonderful days in Sorrento & boating along the Amalfi Coast, we headed up to Tuscany to spend 3 days at our all-time-favorite place in the entire world - Pieve di Caminino! This time we stayed longer, did more, discovered new restaurants in the hill towns, hit the beach, walked in Emi's cork forest, lounged by the beautiful pool, etc. We stayed in the room known as the "Monk's Library" which I paced off at 28'x 85' and was just big enough for me & my wife (ha,ha). Our favorite restaurant is Il Corso in Roccatederighi. If going to the beach (40 min. West) try Bagno La Valletta - Castiglione della Pescaia. It's a private beach that doesn't cost a lot but has wonderful amenities (PARKING, umbrellas, restaurant, changing rooms & toilets and beautiful ocean/land views). TIPS: 1) you need a car; 2) map out how to get to Pieve di Caminino; 3). since there's no restaurant at Caminino look forward to eating dinners in the nearby hill towns and bringing some groceries to make breakfast & lunches. Don't forget to see Emi's turtle breeding pen and his chicken coop. Can't wait for our next stay at Pieve di Caminino.
