About this listing
This is a beautiful 19th century farmhouse set in the fascinating rural landscape of Vitorchiano. You have exclusive access to the entire house - three bedrooms, a lounge with open fireplace, kitchen, a huge garden with olive trees and barbecue. It's ideal for families or as a rural retreat for artists and writers.
A short drive away are the shops and restaurants of the medieval town of Vitorchiano. The house is a perfect base from which to explore Bolsena Lake, Tuscany, Umbria and Rome.
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. Ideal base for day trips to many places of historic and artistic interest in Umbria, Lazio and Tuscany.
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.
