About this listing
We invite you to stay in our beautiful 19th century country house set in the fascinating rural landscape of Tuscia near Tuscany. With open fireplaces, and surrounded by our olive trees and vegetable garden - you can experience the Italian rural life!
This beautiful country house was built in the nineteenth century and was used for many years as a farm house. It has been recently renovated with a new kitchen, a comfortable lounge and three spacious bedrooms but still has many of its original features preserved - including two open fireplaces and the two distinctive huge arch windows in the lounge which overlook the garden beneath.
It is a beautiful, isolated rural setting and we invite you to burn wood on the open fireplaces and harvest fresh vegetables from our vegetable garden!
The house is surrounded by a field with olive and fruit trees and has views of the medieval towns of Bomarzo and Soriano in the distance as well as the magnificent mountains of Cimini.
Beautiful throughout the year - this is a great place to escape to if you're looking for an inspiring location to stay in the Italian countryside or a relaxing base from which to explore the areas of Tuscany and Umbria.
You will have exclusive access to the whole house. The house is on two floors, very spacious and sunny. You can park your car next to the house.

There are plenty of places to explore in the surrounding area. The beautiful medieval hill-top town of Vitorchiano is just 3 miles away and the historic town of Viterbo (famous for its thermal springs) is about 9 miles away.
The house is on the doorstep of the "Monte Casoli Natural Park" - important not only for its natural features but also for its great historical and archaeological value.
Tuscia is one of the most beautiful and fascinating areas of the Lazio region. It is the ideal place to spend a holiday, full of charm and magic in the heart of Italy.
The house is in a rural setting. We advise you to come by car (or bicycle) so that you're able to fully explore the area.
The nearest train station is Grotte Santo Stefano, 2km from the house with connections to Rome, Orvieto, Viterbo, Florence.

Licia hat sich sehr gut um uns gekümmert, genauso ihr Bruder Frederico. Wir haben uns rundum gut versorgt gefühlt.
We loved the Stonehouse. It is beautiful old farm house with lots of original features. Some people may find it a bit basic but we found that really appealing and prefect for us. It was a great place to explore the area with lots if interesting things to do round about. We would love to return as we had a great stay.
We had a wonderful time with family and friends at Licia's house. The house is spacious, beautiful, clean and the location perfect for exploring the area. One can see the attention and care it was put in setting up this space.
Licia and her family were extremely warm and accommodating, and kept in touch with us for the entire stay. Licia picked us up from the train station, although she was in a hurry to catch a flight (thank you again!) and her brother made sure we had everything we needed.
Many thanks to you and your family again for sharing this gem with us. We do hope to be back again.
Grazie mille per questa bellissima occasione. Abbiamo trascorso una settimana tranquila e rilassante in mezzo alla natura pocco toccata e ugualmente vicina a fondi rustici. E poi c'è la famiglia di Licia, qui sono stati sempre disponibili e carissimi.
If you need some quiet time, this is the place. Quite secluded from the rest of the world this spacious stone house is the perfect place to relax. Very nice night sky! Comes with a hammock.
To explore the surrounding attractions or just go buy bread you will need a car.
We enjoyed our stay in the stone house. Recommended!
4 giorni indisturbati! attorno solo allevamenti di pecore, il sole nei finestroni grandi del salone tutta la mattina, una luce bellissima. Molto semplice, ma davvero bella. Licia, Dave e Federico sono stati fantastici e sempre disponibili.
La casa è molto particolare, sicuramente una location particolare in cui trascorrere del tempo immersi nella natura. Sicuramente si presta meglio a soggiorni estivi, d'inverno risulta essere poco confortevole a causa del freddo, ma rimane un posto non ordinario.
