The “corolli incesi" or simply “corolli” are traditional biscuits of our territory, specifically of the village of Castagneto Carducci. In the past they were served in engagement parties but are now available practically all year round and given as gifts during the holidays.
These biscuits, with their distinctive shape, take their name for the "cuts" that are made in the dough during the preparation process.
They are fragrant and rich in flavor and aniseed. They are mad with few and simple ingredients: flour, sugar, anise, eggs, extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt..
The corolli participate in the event "Castagneto a Tavola" which takes place every year in Castagneto Carducci in the first week of May.
Corollis are produced by three bakeries in Castagneto Carducci and Donoratico.
The annual quantity produced is about 10 tons; there has been an upward trend over the last three years due to increased demand from local consumers, however corolli have a very long preparation that is not compatible with the other bakery productions.
They are sold uniquely in the area, both directly and to local shops.
The secrets to delicious corollis are above all three:
- work them well with your hands so that the dough becomes elastic and resistant.
- boil a few at a time and
- remove them as soon as they come afloat and then let them dry well before putting them in the oven to prevent them from cracking.

I was there for a week on half pension, “only” breakfast and dinner included. The food was amazing, the selection of dishes was huge! The staff were kind and friendly, the accommodation was superb. The swimming pools and jacuzzis relaxing. The beach is easily accessible and not full with people which is great. Overall I would say one of the best experiences I’ve had in a holiday
This is a great vacation facility, located on the beautiful Tuscany beach. It is a closed complex of multiple chalets with a kids po, restaurants and an open theatre. The restaurants are poor, but you always will find a good pizza :-) You can survive almost without leaving the resort, as you have a convenient store with most of the needed products from bakery, delicatessen to produce, beauty and beverages.

“Vedi come pacato e azzurro è il mare,
Come ridente a lui discende il sol! E come questo occaso è pien di voli.
Com’è allegro de’ passeri il garrire!.”
