Located near the tiny medieval hill town of Pitigliano in southern Tuscany with views of the vineyards across the ravine.  Pitigliano is one of the most beautiful cities you’ll encounter in Tuscany. It’s bella anytime, but magic at night when it’s illuminated by spotlights. The city is perched on a tufa rock plateau covered with houses some carved as deep as four stories into the stone. Pitigliano was known as Little Jerusalem as a harbour for Jewish residents from the Papal States. In the environs of Pitigliano and throughout the Maremma region of south Tuscany, one can find the “sunken roads” carved out by the Etruscans during the Bronze age. 

Price based on 7 night stay. Property also available per night.

SOVANA

Smallest of the three villages is the well preserved town of Sovana. Once an Etruscan settlement itself, not it is a frazione of Sorano. The one street runs from the 13th century Aldobrandeschi castle ruins to the wonderfully picturesque 12th century cathedral. The Archeological area of Sovana is west along the road to San Martino sul Fiora; here is a stunning Etruscan Necropolis where one of the most important monuments in all of Etruscan Italy, the Ildebrando Tomb dating from 3rd-2nd century BC. The tombs are very much worth visiting. These are lovely areas to visit in the summer when you can escape the heat by walking in the shade of the narrow Vie Cave, all of which tend to be near rivers.
