The location of Sorano is ideal. Equidistant from Rome and Florence. 45 minutes from Orvieto to the East, and 45 minutes from Orbetello and the beautiful Costa d'Argento of the Mediterranean to the West. 75 minutes to Siena. 25 Minutes to the lovely Lake Bolsena. Sorano is a beautifully preserved medieval hill town in the Alta Maremma area of Tuscany, characterized by unspoiled rolling landscapes and fascinating Etruscan sites. Described by a guest as a 'nid douillet'- a cosy nest-, the 'Swift's View' apartment is located in the historic center of the town, and affords wonderful views down to the valley of the Lente river over terra cotta roof tops. The name of the apartment is inspired by the ethereal birds that nest in the volcanic tufa stone walls of the town. Wifi is available and park...The location of Sorano is ideal.

The name of the apartment is inspired by the ethereal birds that nest in the volcanic tufa stone walls of the town. Wifi is available and parking is a short walk away. The apartment is on 2 levels. The main floor is the living area and kitchen, with a large 14th century fireplace and a pull out couch that could sleep an additional 2 people. The lower floor, accessed by three steps, contains the bedroom and bathroom. The owner/host lives in the adjacent 3 bedroom house, which is also available to rent by special request. Both places were renovated as period homes with great attention to detail by the owner, and are furnished with lovely antiques. The cul-de-sac, where the apartment is located, can be used to eat al fresco- and the opposite cantina is usually open for an excellent glass of homemade wine.More
