Capalbio, a small medieval village, constitutes the last coastal strip of southern Tuscany, in the heart of the Maremma. In this land, where man and the land are the architects of an ancient history where the Etruscans and then the Romans have left their traces, nature appears strong and wild, full of contrasts between the sea, the scrub and the countryside . The village of Capalbio is about 14 km from the Relais La Cerreta. An esoteric garden designed by the world-famous French sculptress Niki de Saint Phalle, who was inspired by a visit to the marvelous Park Guell created by the architect Gaudì in Barcelona, contains the representation of the twenty-two tarot cards in cyclopic sculptures, from 12 to 15 meters and covered with mirror mosaics, precious glass and ceramics. The visit represents a moment of leisure and discovery for young and old and the garden is open from 1 April to 15 October from 2.30 pm to 7.30 pm. From the Relais La Cerreta the Tarot Garden is about 4 km away and can be easily reached by bicycle. The Maremma is a land bathed by a clear sea that laps its long variegated coast, made up of sunny expanses, beaches and rocky ravines that rise high to face the Tyrrhenian Sea. The transparent waters of the Maremma coast are in first place among the cleanest seas in Italy and the 160 km of fascinating coast express a great variety of possibilities of enjoyment of the sea. It is a continuous alternation of high coast that here and there opens up in small isolated coves or in very long stretches of sandy coast that have become equipped beaches, protected by luxuriant pine forests or uncontaminated areas.
