DESTINATIONS
Villa Aquilaia is located nearby Scansano, a small village in the Maremma area, on the border between Tuscany and Lazio region. In the past this was an etruscan area as witnessed by several archaeological sites such as Tarquinia, Tuscania, Cerveteri, Blera, Vulci, Barbarano, Vetulonia and Roselle. The property is just 5 minutes walk from the archeological area of Ghiaccioforte, an ancient etruscan village.
The seaside is easily accessible: the wonderful Monte Argentario, along with Porto Ercole and Porto Santo Stefano, are about an hour's drive: splendid white sandy beaches and idyllic coves with crystal clear waters make this coastal area a real paradise even for divers. Moreover, from Porto Santo Stefano daily boats set off to discover the Tuscan Archipelago, including Giglio Island (a real gem in the Mediterranean sea) and Giannutri Island.
Along the coast you will find other delightful seaside towns (such as Orbetello, Talamone and Albinia) and the WWF Oasis of Burano (410 hectares), rich in flora and fauna, with its lake and protected species.
Another lake to visit is Lake Bolsena, the biggest lake of volcanic origin in Europe having some of the most enchanting and striking landscapes of the area.
For wellness lovers, there are several spas such as Sorano and Saturnia with its sulphurous water at 37° C and its 18 holes golf course.
For nature lovers, we recommend a visit to the Maremma Regional Park, un uncontaminated heaven of many animal kind, characterised by a rich landscape of woods and mediterranean forest.
