RED HOUSE is nestled at Castel Cellesi near Bagnoregio, in the northern Tuscia region - the Etruscan Italy - at the meeting point of Lazio, Umbria and Tuscany. The village is made for relaxing. Yet it is surrounded by places of historic, artistic and scenic interest. Nearby Civita di Bagnoregio, Orvieto, Viterbo, Bolsena Lake, Assisi and the thermal springs at Viterbo. The nearby highway whisks you quickly to Florence and Rome.
Castel Cellesi is also a food and wine lover's paradise: First of all you must make sure you have a bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (produced in the village itself ...excellent) on the table which you will use in preparing BRUSCHETTE (toasted bread garnished in a variety of ways) of a thousand different colours and flavours.
ACQUACOTTA is the name of the typical local soup prepared with chicory, potatoes, tomatoes, onions, hot pepper, dry bread and olive oil.
Favourite PASTA dishes in the area include Maccheroni, Lombrichelli (made with only flour and water) potato Gnocchi, Fettuccine, Pappardelle or Polenta. These may be served with a classic ragout (meat sauce) or with a variety of other sauces prepared with Wildboar, Mushrooms, Pork sausages or simple Pomarola (tomato sauce), or in summer with fresh garden vegetables such as zucchini, eggplant turnip greens, sweet peppers and others.
For Main Courses people can choose from among many delicious meat dishes : rabbit alla cacciatora, stewed chicken with tomatoes, chicken or rabbit Viterbese style, wildboar with tomato sauce (very popular), roasted pork, porchetta, tripe and much more....Don't forget to taste the famous wines
produced in the area such as the RED Est!Est!Est!, the WHITE Orvieto or the Dessert Wine ALEATICO!
A complimentary local Wine bottle is waiting for you in the refrigerator of RED HOUSE at Castel Cellesi.

Interaction with Guests
I live and work in Florence and I won't be on the site during my guests' stay. Don't worry my Host Mr. Eddie (multilingual person) is always on the spot. He will assist you during the whole duration of your stay. I'll provide you with his full name and telephone number once your reservation is confirmed.
The beauty of the Lazio Region is often obscured by the fame of Rome but the region has a lot to offer besides the Eternal City: a wealth of history, art, culinary traditions and culture that your stay in Castel Cellesi will help to disclose.
A vacation to discover off-the-beaten-track places but also a time spent learning (if you wish) to prepare a true Tuscian meal, tasting local wines and lots of genuine, rare foods.
Car is highly recommended.
Parking in the public street.
Rome is the nearest airport. From airport to our place the easiest for guests is renting a car and drive to Castel Cellesi. It is also possible to catch a train from Rome to Alviano.
In any case, please get in touch with me, I'll give you more detailed information about transportation.
House linen is included as well as house cleaning before and after your stay.
We expect our guests to respect the property. Any damage will be charged on your account.
A multilingual host is always present to give keys, instructions, to help and to advise the guests.
