Il Ciliegio Sorano Maremma Tuscany - View over the pool and the building with the holiday apartmentsIl Ciliegio,nestling among the gentle slopes of the Maremma, only 5 km from Sorano in Southern Tuscany, is composed of two single houses which are both one-storey buildings for 2 to 6 people and 4 holiday apartments in a building about 50 m away.
Furthermore, the garden is furnished with deck-chairs, tables and garden umbrellas, where our guests can still hear the sounds and feel the smell of an unspoiled nature. In the garden, lying between olive trees, there is a swimming pool of 10x5 m size, with sun umbrella, deck chairs and small tables at the guest's disposal.

Although the vicinity to these places, Il Ciliegio is only surrounded by the hilly landscape. Every house has a large terrace with table and chairs for outside dining or just to enjoy peaceful and relaxing moments. 
The village Sorano as well as Pitigliano and Sovana, were built on a tufaceous rock. The center of the village has still its original medieval structure, where one can walk through the narrow alleys.

Il Ciliegio Sorano - Terrace with pool and countryside view of one of the apartmentsSorano's first traces as a village date back to the 3rd century B.C. when the Romans started with the conquest of Etruria. Findings around Sorana and the villages nearby prove also a very strong Etruscan presence.
The near Sovana was once defined as the Queen of the Maremma, a past witnessed by many monuments and findings. Around Sovana there are Etruscan tombs of various types; the so called Tomba d'Ildebranda is one of the biggest Etrurian graves. The last town built on a tufaceous rock is Pitigliano, known also for the delicious white wine Bianco di Pitigiano. - The charming Piazza in SovanaAlready the Etrucans, followed by the Romans, exploited for their wine production the hills around Pitigliano. The caves digged into the tufa and used also for wine canteens, testify the long lasting wine culture in this area. Pitigliano, Sorano and Sovana are connected through the so called Vie Cave, which are ways digged into the tufa.
Not far away is the town Saturnia and the baths with the sulphurous waters. According to a legend Saturnia was founded by Saturn. It was first an Etruscan than a Roman settlement and later on, in the middle ages, passed to the important Tuscan aristocratic family Aldobrandeschi. - View of Pitigliano by NightIn 1299 Saturnia was destroyed by the Sieneses. It became nearly a ghost town, but the thermal waters underneath Saturnia brought again economic welfare. For wine-loving people, it is a must to visit Scansano, famous for the rubin coloured red wine Morellino di Scansano. The village invites with its numerous wine-bars and restaurants to taste the specialities of the area, accompanied by the local wine.
