Additional Location Information
Il Maggio is set in 2 hectares of woods, arable land and olive groves.

Sarteano is a large Tuscan village with a charming medieval centre and many shops, restaurants and banks.
Behind the house and immediately accessible are beautiful woods offering a variety of interesting nature walks and the remains of Etruscan roads. It is 17 Kilometres from the fashionable and health giving thermal baths of San Casciano, 20 minutes to Montepulciano and 30 minutes to Montalcino.
Chiusi station which is a major stop on the main train line that runs down the spine of the Italian peninsular is only 20 minutes drive form the house. The A1 or Auto Strada del Sole is only 10 minutes away also at Chiusi putting Il Maggio mid way between Florence (1 Â½ hours by car) and Rome (1 1/4 hour on the train, private cars are not allowed into the city centre).
Whilst it is definitely in Tuscany, the borders of Umbria and Lazio are not faraway, allowing for forays into these fascinating and little discovered provinces as well as access to the well known and loved hills of Tuscany.
