Masso delle Fanciulle, easy route within the Berignone Nature Reserve of about 11 kilometers, with 450 mt of uphill gradient and 350 mt of downhill, between Saline di Volterra and Pomarance, in the province of Pisa
Masso delle Fanciulle is correctly considered an enchanted, beautiful place not to miss expecially in Summer.
Masso delle Fanciulle is a natural area near a bathing stretch of the river Cecina; the many beaches all around, small waterfalls and the small lake nestled between the two stone stacks have made this place a popular destination both by locals and tourists
It is a walk that runs along the river Cecina, and in some places it is possible to cross it on foot .. Picnic stop is strongly recommended.
It’s nice to do this itinerary in all seasons, as long as the weather is good, but in summer it’s also possible to swim!
How to get there : just before Volterra, take the deviation for Mazzolla, follow the road and after about 5 kilometers you reach the equipped area.
If you plan to stay in this area, take a look at the accommodation proposed by the Farmhouse Pomarance, pretty easy to reach, only 3 kilometers away.
The area of Cecina offers many beauties and citysightseeings. Among the beautiful villages to suggest, we strongly recommend Montecastelli and Montegemoli
Pomarance is positioned in Cecina valley, in a scenic location between the Natural Reserve of Berignone, Rocca di Sillano and Volterra.
This location is particularly good for those who want to explore medioeval villages and cities of the area, explore Volterra but also enjoy their time in Tuscany discovering hidden beauties of the surroundings.
Among the places we usually propose, if you search for a day trip, don’t miss some of our favorite sea spots such as :
- Cala Violina
- La Buca delle Fate
- San Vincenzo
All of them are not so far away, by car around 40 minutes up to more than 1 hour but it is worth it for sure.
Looking forward to wishing you a beautiful stay in Tuscany, with us!
