Villa Cavallini is located in an area called the 'Maremma', a less well known and therefore all the more intriguing part of Tuscany, which stretches south towards Latium. It is easy to believe that this wild landscape owes much of its mystique to the lingering presence of the Etruscans, remembered for their peace loving and hedonistic way of life.With fabulous views of the Tyrrhenian Sea, in one of the most beautiful parts of the Tuscan countryside, Gherardesca is a newly restored medieval castle. Within 20 acres of park there is a main house, a 10th century tower, a church, a leisure pool with a tent and a tennis court. 15 minutes away there is a private hut on the beach.

Villa Cavallini lies around 16km from the coast near the village of Manciano in a seemingly endless landscape of rolling hills, utterly unspoilt, spotted with cypress trees and farmhouses here and there. In a beautiful spot of the garden a good-sized swimming pool looks out over the countryside, whilst the villa itself offers guests the chance to enjoy the simplicity of country life and the seaside in a civilised and comfortable surrounding. Beyond the borders of the property, guests will discover an area rich in cultural landmarks, a beautiful countryside, good food and excellent wine.
The closest village is Manciano, some 9km from the villa. Manciano is a typically Tuscan fortified village where guests can enjoy their daily shopping with everything close at hand - including food shops, a supermarket, bank, post office, newsagent, pharmacy as well as a good local bar for a daily 'cappucino'.
Within close driving distance a number of hilltop villages - closest are Magliano and the trendy Capalbio - offer charming alternatives for the daily shopping and stopovers at the local bar.
