Situated in a stunning and secluded, rural landscape just 20km from the sweeping Etruscan coast you will find San Illario, the ideal home for an Italian escape with family or friends.

San Illario is enviably located, as the home is surrounded by only lush rolling fields and vineyards. This setting is ideal for if you wish to get away from it all and soak in the ambience of the beautiful countryside. The villa is not isolated however and just 6km away there is a supermarket where you can stock up on supplies for dinner, or if you would rather pop out to eat then the closest village is Casale Marittimo (12km away). Here you can find shops and a number of lovely restaurants.

Tuscany is known for its wine and you will notice vineyards everywhere close to the villa. If you are a wine lover then make sure to spend an afternoon paying a visit to a vineyard such as La Mercareccia which is 9km away from the house. Take a tour of the land, take part in a wine tasting and pick up a few bottles to pair with dinner back at the house.

As well as having stunning countryside, Tuscany is filled with many charming hilltop villages. Bolgheri for example is a lovely place to visit and is just 20km away. Approached through its famous avenue of cypress trees, as you enter the village you will see the impressive medieval castle. Wander around this pretty village and you will discover a palace, fortress, village walls and ancient churches. Bolgheri is also a great spot to stop for dinner and glass of the fantastic local wine.

Volterra is another example of a rugged hilltop town and is just 30km away from the villa. Visit Volterra to wander the atmospheric winding streets, nip into the museums and galleries and shop for art and hand-made crafts and sculptures. In the town there are also some impressive Roman ruins, the sumptuous Palazzo Viti and of course the amazing views on offer from the top of the bell tower.

When you wish to visit the beach, there are lots to choose from around 20km away. The nearest is the blue flag Marina di Bibbona which is a vast sandy beach. While 5km further, the beach at the seaside town of Cecina is ideal for water sports, especially learning to surf. Cecina is also a fabulous place to visit with a marina, walking paths along the river, markets and an archaeological park.

If you are happy to travel a little further, you can visit San Gimignano which is 60km away, Siena which is 84km away and even Florence which is 110km away. There is so much art, history and culture which can be seen less than 2 hours from the villa!
