For our second place in Tuscany we stayed at La Conda Rossa, a working olive farm near Capalbio. There’s a pool so the kids spent all day every day there while we sat and read.
We ate dinner at the hotel’s restaurant every night and it was quite good. The kids started eating more adventurously.
On the second day we went for a drive around the area. First, we went to a small nearby town for lunch and then drove by the coast to a cute town called Orbetello, a picturesque marina town called Porto San Stefano and then stopped at a public beach for locals for an hour or so.
There was a mixup with our reservation, we thought we had 3 days but the hotel thought we had only 2 and someone else was checking into our room on our last day. Fortunately, someone left one of the cottages early so they could move us there and it had a nice yard.
