The property is in the region of Lazio (Rome) but on the border to Tuscany.

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.

Talamone, a picturesque and solitary fishing village situated on a rocky promontory, is built around a 15th century citadel from which there are spectacular views of the coast and islands. 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. Tuscany famous hot springs of Saturnia at one hours drive, is the most spectacular, with hot waterfalls in the middle of nature, open to everyone.
