In the past, Manciano was one of the main Etruscan cities in the area between Tuscany and Lazio, and there are several important archaeological sites nearby such as Tuscania, Cerveteri, Blera, Vulci, Barbarano, Vetulonia and Roselle, as well as the Roman ruins of Cosa. The villa is an excellent starting point to visit the charming towns of Orbetello, Montemerano, Sovana, Sorano and Pitigliano.

The sea is within easy reach: Monte Argentario, with Porto Ercole and its wonderful Feniglia beach, and Porto Santo Stefano is less than an hour’s drive. White sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, this coastal area can be considered paradise for divers and sailors.

Lake Bolsena is also easy to reach from Manciano. It is the biggest lake of volcanic origin in Europe, well known for its fascinating landscapes and surroundings. Moreover, Saturnia thermal spa cannot be missed, with its sulphurous water at 37°C and its 18-hole golf course.
