Castello di Punta Ala, seen from Golf Club Punta Ala

Punta Ala is a frazione of the town of Castiglione della Pescaia, in the province of Grosseto, Tuscany. It is a famous seaside resort which lies at the bottom of the northern hillsides of the promontory of the same name.
Previously known as Punta Troia, changed its name to Punta Ala (from aviation jargon[further explanation needed]) after the great Italian aviator Italo Balbo, who had purchased some fortifications and villas in the area which later became his residences.

Punta Ala Golf Club

One of the largest golf courses in the province, the Punta Ala Golf Club, was founded in 1964.

Podere Santa Pia is a beautiful stone farmhouse only 2 km away from Castiglioncello Bandini. The main house is spacious, comfortable and well furnished and offers its guests a breathtaking view over the Maremma hills. As one drives down to the property you can’t help feeling a sense of anticipation: turning into a gloriously open space surrounded by trees and ultimately your holiday home, it is difficult not to be overwhelmed by the setting and the stunning, far reaching views.
The central location of the holiday home allows you to visit the nearby beautiful villages Montalcino, Sant'Antimo, Pienza, S. Quirico d'Orcia and in the south Saturnia and Sorano - known for its beautiful Sasso Leopoldo. And the sea is 38km away in Marina di Grosseto.
