The appartment was clean and in a nice situation close to the beach. It was very busy and quite noisy at night, but it was peak season so expected really. The beaches were heaving, and stony, although we found some lovely sandy beaches only 15 or so miles down the coast. Castiglioncello itself was nice - a marina, coastal walk, pine areas, crazy golf, etc. The appartment definitely needs air conditioning and some kitchen equipment upgrading.
