Surrounded by trees, the villa Il Fontanile stands in extensive landscaped grounds which blend into the olive groves and fields of the estate. Villa Il Fontanile lies at the heart of a 400 acre estate which stretches along the Maremma coast, with private access to a nearby beach (3km). The property is in the region of Lazio (Rome) but on the border to Tuscany.
Built at the beginning of the 20th century, the villa was fully restored and divided into 4 ample self-catering apartments in 1998. The house and garden have a relaxed, informal atmosphere, and a serenity which will immediately make you feel at ease.

The Lazio region
Maremma, a lesser known and therefore all the more captivating part of Tuscany extending south towards Latium.
The area is provided with significant natural and environmental resources, where ancient traditions have survived and Tuscan culture is preserved. The Natural Park of the Maremma, traditionally populated by the butteri, cattle-breeders who used horses until recently, with a distinctive style of saddle.
The territory of Maremma is rich in nuances - long stretches of beaches of fine sand accompanied by lush pine forests, tiny coves with sweet sounding names and crystal-clear water, deserted beaches against natural havens, uncontaminated islands in an enchanted sea, villages and castles that are austere and festive at the same time, gentle landscapes brimming with history and natural wonders.
Villa Il Fontanile is located roughly halfway between Rome and Grosseto. The property is surrounded by the cultural landmarks of Tarquinia, Tuscania, Orbetello and Viterbo, which all are more or less half an hour’s drive away.
Things to do :
The beach of fine sand stretches along the coast. The water is clean and usually warm enough to swim in from mid May to October.

Tarquinia and Tuscania boast world wide famous archeological excavations which should not be missed.
“Tagliata Etrusca” a canal cut in the rock near the Spacco della Regina, a deep and mysterious cavern which seems almost mythological.
