Welcome to the Tombolo Talasso Resort where the virtues of land and sea meet in an harmonic ensemble of colors, tastes and emotions.
A land lovingly described by the poet Carducci; the land of the Etruscan civilization, of gentle hills which gradually unfold toward the coast giving way to century-old olive groves and renowned vineyards fed by a generously lingering sun. It is an enchanting landscape engrossed in the charms of ancient civilizations and traditions.
To us, hospitality means welcoming each Guest with a friendly greeting and a service which satisfies personal needs and expectations - informal yet sophisticated. Our philosophy aims at achieving international excellence without betraying the precious bond with the Tuscan territory and its traditions - balancing past and present, simplicity and refinement.
We strive to offer a broad concept of “well-being” which embraces not only the physical health and relaxation bestowed by our Thalassotherapy Center and SPA but also from the serene atmosphere, the good food, the fine wines and the constant contact with nature. We trust you too will be captivated by these emotions and that over the years the Tombolo Talasso Resort will grow to be a haven of wellness in one of the most enchanting areas of Tuscany.

Thalassotherapy (from the Greek “thalassa ”, sea) is an ancient and effective method of relaxation based on the use of all marine resources: sea water, climate, seaweed, sea mud and sand. Sea water contains a variety of minerals, salts and other oligoelements fundamental for the human organism to function and generate beneficial anti-stress, relaxing and revitalizing effects.
Ancient civilizations like those of the Egyptians, Greeks and the Romans where aware of the sea's healing properties long before the development of the modern hydrothermal science and techniques now available at the Tombolo Thalasso Resort. Sea water contains sodium chloride and is also rich in other minerals like iodine, iron, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, sulphur and potassium.
The similarity between the chemical composition of sea water and that of the human body makes these elements vital to our well-being. Given the right conditions of temperature and humidity, as in our thalasso center, the human skin becomes highly osmotic and permits the interaction between sea water and plasma letting these minerals pass through the skin and reach the blood cells.
This interaction has astimulative, regenerative and cleansing effect through the elimination of toxins and improvement ofmuscle tone. While sea water is the main active ingredient, coastal climate is also an important part of Thalassotherapy.
The waves diffuse marine minerals, salts and ions into the air, which combined with a correct exposure to the sun, improve the body's metabolism and respiratory processes. Seaweed used in thalassotherapic treatments have hydrating and re-mineralizing effects and are particularly useful in anti-cellulite treatments and facial masks. Lastly, sea mud, which is a concentration of marine flora and fauna residues, is used in thalassotherapic baths and wraps or heated and applied directly to the skin to sooth pain of the muscles or the articulations.

Marina di Castagneto Carducci is a seaside resort with a large sandy beach bordered by pinewood planted at the beginning of the century to shelter the countryside during the rare winter storms. The town developed around the eighteenth-century fortress built by the government to improve the coastal defences and presently the residence of the Count Della Gherardesca. Nowadays, Marina di Castagneto is one of the most well-known and exclusive seaside resorts on the Etruscan Coast, known for the quality of services offered and for the purity of the sea which has been awarded the European “Blue Flag” for many years.
Only a few steps from the building, the Resort's sandy beach extends for 200 meters. It is safeguarded by our beach staff and equipped with sun umbrellas, chaises longues and sun beds. The Guests' privacy and relaxation under the sun is guaranteed by the natural barrier of the tombolos, the sand dunes of this part of the Tuscan coast. Beyond the beach, the sea is crystal clear and the seven islands of the Tuscan archipelago - Gorgonia, Giannutri, Capraia, Pianosa, Montecristo, Giglio and Elba, Napoleon'shome in exile - stand out like the seven pearls of Venus's necklacelost while swimming in the Mediterranean Sea. On clear days Corsica and Sardinia are visible in the distance. All the islands can be reached with a local ferry boat service.
The Swimming pool
The outside swimming pool is a sea water lagoon surrounded by vegetation set in a corner of the garden to guarantee the Guests' privacy. It is the ideal area for a soothing break amid the pinewood, palm trees, cedars and junipers where silence, shade and peace prevail. The soft trickling of its small waterfall lulls and relaxes the senses. The pagoda bar, La Baia dei Pini, is available for refreshing drinks and small brunches.
The terrazza mare
Originally the dining-hall of the old summer colony, the Terrace above the Lobby reaches towards the sea – on windy days, it gives the impression of being on the deck of a cruise ship.
