The apartment IL BUTTERO is located in the centre of a tipical, nice south Tuscan hamlet, called Sorano.

 In the VI° century, Cosimo I° De Medici, Duke of Gran Duchy of Tuscany, renamed Sorano " the match of the war in Italy ", cause its mighty fortress, never conquerred, and its strategic position in the centre of Italy near the borders of some States of that time. It was so important to have the control of the fortress of Sorano, that it was the protagonist of many battles and, all failed, great sieges. 

Actually, the history of this beautiful Tuscan village starts many centuries before. In fact its origins are pre-Etruscan, as you can see and visit from the cave settlements still present close to Sorano.     

Today Sorano, leaved the warrior ambitions, is becomed a quaint and quiete Tuscan hamlet of the area of Alta Maremma, the ancient Tuscia, as well as the land of the Butteri, the famous horse herders of Maremma, and the good local food and wine are the only weapons left.

Set in a fantastic location, on a tuff spur overlooking the river below, it enjoys an incomparable view, practically visible from everywhere in the village. The old centre of the hamlet is hightly suggestive as well as the view from the Fortress Orsini, which was recently renovated and can be visited, also within the soldiers communication trenches, placed within the fortress walls.  

The locals are friendly, the food is simple but excellent, such as dairy products and meats, the air is clean and noise pollution does not exist.

The surrounding landscapes, typical of Maremma, are really beatiful, full of hills, forests and rivers.

In a few minutes drive takes you to the lake of Bolsena, or the summit of Mount Amiata and, with a little more than half an hour you get to the sea, Orbetello, Capalbio or Argentario. For people love to ride a horse don't exist a better place to do this.

In addition, Sorano and its surroundings are part of the " Parco Archeologico Città del Tufo " wich also includes the area of Sovana famous for its monumental Etruscan tombs and the incredible "Vie Cave ".

After few minutes from your arrival you feel like you have made a journey back in time and have reached a place where time seems to dilated, perfect to relax, and that once lived and visited for a few days, will be impossible to forget it.
