Perched on a small hill, overlooking the very best views of the Maremma, Manciano is a secluded paradise of peace and tranquility embellished with charming streets and alleyways hiding some of the most beautiful historical treasures of the area. The farm house Il Quarto is only ten minutes from Manciano, offering a welcoming and comfortable base to explore the unique splendor of the Maremma.
The town of Manciano is affectionately known as “The Spy of the Maremma” for the incredible views it provides of the entire territory, stretching across sea and the coast of Monte Argentario, to the impressive peaks of Monte Amiata and its hills, to the enchanting Bolsena Lake and rivers.
Walking through the streets of Manciano you can see the territory’s medieval history come alive through the charming alleyways, impressive monuments and grand churches. The Aldobrandeschi Fortress which today houses the town hall, the Clock Tower, rebuilt during the Sienese occupation, the Church of San Leonardo, custodian of elegantly painted works and finally the Church of the Santissima Annuziata, home to paintings by one of Maremma’s most famous painters Paride Pascucci are symbols of this era and the ruling powers, lovingly maintained in all of their original splendor and beauty.
