Immortalised in Giosuè Carducci’s poem "Before San Guido", "I cipressi che a Bolgheri alti e schietti van da San Guido in duplice filar..." (The cypresses of Bolgheri, tall and straight, march from San Guido in a double line…) this ancient village has a fascination all of its own.

A stone’s throw from the sea and surrounded by countryside where vines and olive trees thrive, this little town with its unspoilt architectural harmony is dominated by the red brick castle which guards the entrance to the village of narrow paved streets and old stone houses bright with geraniums. Spectacular sunsets and darting swallows enliven the skies. Craft shops, wine shops and taverns offer traditional, local products.

The churches, the poet Giosuè Carducci’s childhood home and San Guido’s oratory are fascinating to visit, while the surrounding countryside with its holiday and horse-breeding farms is the ideal place for walking, cycling or horse riding.
