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.
Sassetta2 bazaretrusco.itThis 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.
