About This Listing
We would like to invite to stay in our beautiful stonehouse - everything you need to experience the Italian countryside way of life!
The stonehouse is typical of this beautiful region of Tuscia. It was built in the nineteenth century and was used for many years as a farmhouse. Many of its original features are preserved (the two fireplaces and some of places where cattle used to feed!) but it is now fully refurbished with a kitchen, lounge and three spacious bedrooms.
A field with olive trees and fruit trees surrounds the house. And looking from the house, you can see the two medieval towns of Bomarzo and Soriano in the distance as well as the magnificent mountains of Cimini.
You will have exclusive access to the whole stone house. The house is on two floors, very spacious and sunny.

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.
October 2013. We really enjoyed our 5 day stay at the stone house. Licia was in Scotland but her mum, Marie, looked after us. She pointed out places to visit and even invited us around for dinner one night even though she spoke limited English. From afar, Licia gave us excellent directions by SMS to find the stone house and also later on, to locate a nearby ancient site called Corvanio.
The stone house was very clean and comfortable and was well located to nearby attractions. Grocery shopping was available in both Grotte Santo Stefano [2 kms] and Vitorchiano [5 kms]. No issues with parking but the reality is that you really do need a car to get around here. Unfortunately there was no WiFi or washing machine available at the time of our stay.
My wife became attached to the cute little farm cat which we fed each day. All in all it was a great stay and we hope to return one day.
This rustic house has a lot of potential. The newer parts of the house are beautiful, however, the house itself was unkept, inside and out - dust and insects abounded. The beautiful scenery was difficult to enjoy through very dirty windows. We did enjoy the area (visiting Civita, Vitorchiano), A car is necessary to get there (with a GPS) as we saw no trains, taxis or buses travelling close to the house. Coming stocked with groceries is advised and note that the kitchen has a hot plate, a microwave, and a fridge. There is also an oven which is fuelled by wood that you are required to (email hidden)bably not ideal for larger groups. Hot water ran out after day one.. Beds were great!
We had a great time in the stone house: much space, style and charm, tranquil and beautiful surroundings. The house is clean and well-kept with many unique details we loved. A good base to explore the little villages or bigger towns from there. Licia and her family were most helpful and very friendly. They even lent us a bike and gave us a lift to do our shopping. We got good tips from them about the area as well. A perfect getaway from the city, though mind: it's a bit unhandy without a car.
