Sassetta is a charming little historical village on the Costa degli
Etruschi, set among woods and stands of chestnuts on a hilltop
overlooking the sea.
This Medieval stronghold still contains reminders of its past, such as
the Romanesque baptismal font, a 15th century painting of the Virgin, a
rock crystal crucifix (15th-16th century) and other paintings which are
to be found in the ancient church of St Andrew Apostle.
The woods are full of hiking trails and paths for walks, cycling and
horseback riding, and numerous agricultural holdings offering holiday
accommodation and local produce can be found here too.
In Sassetta, old traditions handed down through the years are kept alive
with colourful, folkloristic events.
Sassetta's delicious, wholesome food is celebrated at the autumn fests.
