Item #1 
Tuscan Villa Rentals
7-night stay for four people at one of five rental properties in Manciano, Italy (1 ½ hours north of Rome)





















Our homes are situated in the ancient town of Manciano which rises on the top of a hill open to the four winds with a breathtaking view in all directions: from the Amiata to the Fiora Valley, from Talamone to the beaches of Montalto di Castro, from the Argentario to the islands of Giglio and Montecristo. Manciano extends for 37,203 square kilometers in a hilly zone situated between the valleys of Albegna and Fiora. It is thought that the town’s name derives from the patrician Roman family name of Mancia who owned a large area of property called “Praedium Mancianum.” At one time, Manciano was a fairly important market town for the area. Its stronghold already recorded in the 12th century. A brief occupation by Siena (1419-1455) left the town an imposing fortress built around 1424. The first mention of the Manciano castle is found in a privilege emanated in 1188 by Pope Clemente III in favor of the Church of Sovana. In that area, it was already subjugated to the AldoBrandeschi Dominion and in 1274 with the act of division of the Aldobrandesca County; it was assigned to the Branch of the Counts of Sovana.
