Hidden from the house by rose and lavender bushes is the 18 x 6 m. swimming pool with an adjoining paddling pool. A roof on pillars which used to serve as farm storage has restored and transformed into an summer living room, an ideal place for lazy summer afternoons in the cool summer breeze. The pool is fenced for the security of children.

A country road leads through sweet smelling Mediterranean maquis from the villa Il Fontanile to the private gate leading to the beach. Deck chairs and sunbeds are available, as well as a shower and a shady parking space.

Further down the beach you will find two lovely beach clubs - one simple and the other trendy - where you can have coffee, drinks or a light lunch.

The nearest village, Pescia Romana, is 4 km. away from Fontanili. Here you will find all you need, baker and butcher as well as a supermarket and, of course, a bar for your daily cappuccinos and a newsagent who also sells foreign newspapers.

PLEASE NOTE: PRICES GIVEN ARE FOR 4 PEOPLE. PLEASE CONTACT US FOR PRICES FOR 5 TO 6 PEOPLE.

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.

Pescia Romana

Activities & Places of interest

From a holidayer's point of view the private beach of Fontanili is a real asset, only four kilometers from the house. A back road leads to a private gate to which the guests are given a key. The beach is of fine sand with a multitude of coloured shells. Behind the beach, the dunes are covered with a labyrinth of wild aromatic bushes such as myrtle and cistus-roses which blossom at different times of the year. Two cafés down the beach have coffé, ice-cream and also serves light meals.

Lake Burano: the estate of Fontainili borders on the Lake Burano, a lagoon run by the WWF. The bird-watching here is excellent, above all in spring and autumn.

The Parco dell'Uccellina, officially the Parco Nazionale Maremmano, is a rewarding place for nature lovers. Marked footpaths will lead you through incredibly beautiful pine woods to hidden creeks, past romantic ruins of fortified watch towers to the abbey of San Rabano, built by monks who arrived from Rhodes in the X century.

Vulci is another natural park of the WWF. The castle called “Castello dell'Abbadia” has become the National Archeological Museum of Vulci with a beautiful collection of ceramics, sculptures and bronzes. We recommend a walk over the Roman bridge of l'Abbadia. From here, on foot or by car, you may reach the remains of the Etruscan and Roman town of Vulci called “La Civita”. The area has become an archeological park and offers a choice of many walks.

Tarquinia is world famous for its Etruscan tombs and frescoes. The necropolis of Tarquinia is on the outskirts of town and easy to find. In town the beautiful 15th century Palazzo Vitelleschi is now the Archeological Museum.

Tuscania: dating back to the Etruscan period, it became an important fortification in the middle-ages. The two romanic churches of Santa Maria Maggiore are remarkable. A walk through the center of the town is rewarding.

Monte Argentario: only half an hour from Fontanile lies the Monte Argentario, a peninsula connected with the mainland by three dams. The Monte Argentario is known for its fine coastline, rich mediterranean vegetation and the two jet set harbours Porto Ercole and Porto Santo Stefano.

The Tarot-Garden of Niki de Saint-Phalle: on one of the hills not far from Fontanili the famous french artist hs built her „Jardin des Tarots“, twenty two giant sculptures inspired by the figures of the magic tarot cards. Children love it!

Villa Lante, Bagnaia- Viterbo: one of Italy's most stunning Renaissance gardens. At 80 kms, just over an hours drive. Can be combined with a visit to

Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola, one of Italy's most stunning Renaissance buildings. The Scala Regia is an elaborate stone spiral staircase that let Cardinal Alessandro Farnese (later Pope Paul III) reach the bedrooms on horseback. The Palazzo contains masterpieces by some of the most important painters and architects of the period.

Sovana, Sorano and Pitigliano are three towns at 1 h drive. Sovana boasts a magnificent Etruscan necropolis and 2 remarkable Romanic churches. Pitigliano is a medieval town high up on a crest, with a Jewish community dating back to the 16th c. It is also known for the white wine Bianco di Pitigliano. The Medieval town of Sorano spreads at the foot of the 14th century Orsini Castle.

Sports

Main feature of the Maremma is… the thermal wind, from April to September the wind blows 4 to 5 days a week with an intensity ranging from 12 to 25 knots, The beaches of Castiglione, Talamone and Capalbio provide suitable spots for any kind of wind condition, where you can practice FreeStyle, Waveriding and long downwind.

The tennis club in Pescia Romana, the village, has several courts whcih can be booked by the hour.

Golf:there are two golf courses in the region.

18 holes, 70 par, only 30 min. drive away and

http://www.termedisaturnia.it/en/golf 1 hour by car, has 18 holes, Par 72. The famous Punta Ala Club is 1 hour by car, it has 18 holes, Par 72.

The islands and hiring a boat: In Porto Santo Stefano, 30 minutes drive from Fontanile, you can hire boat which will take you to te islands of Giglio and Giannutri off the Tuscan coast. Giglio has a charming main village and castle, and many creeks hidden between the cliffs. Giannutri, its bare coastline dominated by the ruins of a Roman villa overlooking the sea, recalls some of the Greek islands, which deep-sea divers can look for sunken Roman galeons on the sea bed.
