Staying in Bomarzo is an unforgettable experience in an ancient place and its region, full of history, art, nature, archeology and gastronomy.
You are going to be enchanted by the taste of genuine Italy!
Very beautiful house in the historical center (the castle) of Bomarzo, a wonderful perched medieval village of Latium (center of Italy), placed at 80 km from Rome and also easily reachable from Rome and Florence airports by the A1 motorway and by train.
Bomarzo is worldly known for its Park of the Monsters (a large Renaissance garden full of mythological huge sculptures, reachable by 10 min. walk from the apartment ), but also for its closeness with etruscan and roman important remains, thermal baths, the Bolsena Lake and many Renaissance monuments like Villa Farnese in Caprarola, Villa Lante della Rovere in Bagnaia, the perched village of Civita di Bagnoregio (named "the dying city"), and many other gorgeuos historical towns like Viterbo, Tuscania, Orvieto, and many others.
The geographical position of Bomarzo at the crossing of Latium, Tuscany and Umbria, makes it an ideal starting point for an endless number of historical, archeological and naturalistic trips.
The flat is fresh and comfortable and just renovated in the typical local style (vulcanic stone). You find the main bedroom for 2 persons, a nice mezzanine in the living room for other 2 persons and one more detached double room with private bathroom just a few steps below. Internet and wi-fi is included. Free parking is possible just outside of the village center (300 m from the house).
Outside of the village center, at 10 min. walking from the house, you may find any kind of shops and market, as well as typical restaurants, a swimming-pool with astonishing view and many other things to do and see.
Guests will have acces to a warm living-room with american kitchen and chimney, a double bed room, a mezzanine above the kitchen and a comfortable bathroom with shower. Out of the main apartment there's the second double bedroom with private bathroom and independent acces.
Interaction with Guests
Guests will be welcome by a very gentle neighbour who will hand them keys and give them any required informatioins about the apartment and touristic attractions of the area.
The historical center of Bomarzo, the castle and the palace of the duke, where the apartment is located, is one of the best preserved exemples of medievel village in center Italy. Moreover, the view from the village on surrounding landscape is really gorgeous.
Reach Bomarzo is quite simple and direct, however a car is needed to fully enjoy all local attractions. You may reach the village either from the South (Rome) or from the north (Milan or Florence) by A1 motorway, until Attigliano. Then, the direction to the village is well indicated.
If you come by train, nearest stations are Orte or attigliano but beware! No taxi will lead you to the village, so either you take a bus from Orte (not Attigliano) or it's better to arrange a lift directly with the owner of the apartment.
Casa Del Duc is a lovely rustic apartment with ancient stone walls but all modern conveniences and we enjoyed our stay there the second time even more than we did the first. Skies were sunny and temperatures were moderate for February and the warmth and glow from the pellet stove kept us comfortable in the evenings as we enjoyed local wines, sausages, cheese, bread and olive oil. I would extend this apartment my highest recommendation! Exceptional ambiance. Convenient to so many wonderful things to see...lakes, historical sites, gardens, etc. I simply cannot image a more wonderful experience anywhere in the world.
