Our charming 40 m2 appartment with panoramic view to the mountains and the sea is located in the historic heart of the beautiful ancient town, Cori, only a 45 min. drive from Rome. You’ll find contact details at my danish website (website hidden)
The appartment is located at the upper floor in a historic house that dates back to the late Middle Ages. Our small appartment is light and full of atmosphere and in first-class condition: Small hall, new bathroom, spacious kitchen- dining area and a cosy bedroom/sitting room from where you access the balcony with the breath taking view.
The thick walls protect against the heat in the summer, and a newly installed heating system provides comfort in the cooler seasons – which aren’t many in this hemisphere.
Balcony with 180 degree panoramic view
From the house’s balcony and its 6 m2 balcony, you have a 180-degree view of the beautiful Italian countryside. The view from the balcony, is spectacular. Here, you have a full view of the soft Lepinian mountain range with its many olive groves and fields of grazing horses. The mountains slope into the Pontina plain that is literally bathed in light at nightfall. On a clear day, the Tyrennian Sea creates a beautiful blue backdrop to this view. To the right of Monte Circeo, you can see the Pontinian Islands, where, according to The Odyssey, the witch, Circe transformed Odysseus’ men into swine. To the east, the Temple of Hercules stands majestically in the background, towering over the ridge of the roof. You can hardly wish for more.
A two minutes walk from the house along cobbled streets leads you to Piazza Signina, Cori’s bustling square. This is where you find bars and clusters of excellent food stores: butchers, green grocers, cheese shops, a bakery, a confectionary, and a Sidis (Italian supermarket). So when you’ve stocked up on delicious foods, you don’t have to carry them far.
A piping hot espresso, a freshly squeezed orange juice or a chilled glass of white wine awaits you just around the corner at one of the Cori’s charming cafés, which are usually full of card-playing locals.
Cori’s ancient temple, the Temple of Hercules towers behind the house and is only a few minutes’ walk away. From the temple’s travertine benches, worn shiny by previous visitors, you can sit in the shadow of the trees and enjoy beautiful sunsets – only disturbed by Italian ladies swilling their vegetables in the fresh stream from the mountains.
