GREEN HOUSE is located at Castel Cellesi (Bagnoregio - Viterbo) at the meeting point of Lazio, Umbria and Tuscany. A 16th century village where the road ends in the great Piazza. Stunningly located-surrounded by emerald green fields,silver green olive groves, piercing blue skies, deep red sunsets - dominating the Tiber Valley at the foot of the Umbrian mountains.
Nestled in the northern Tuscia region - the Etruscan Italy - CASTEL CELLESI is made for relaxing. Yet it is surrounded by places of historic, artistic and scenic interest. Within easy reach of Civita di Bagnoregio, Orvieto, Viterbo, Siena, Assisi, Lake Bolsena and the thermal springs at Viterbo.
The nearby highway whisks you quickly to Florence and Rome.
The area around Castel Cellesi (Tuscia) 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 (possibly produced in the village...excellent) on the table, then enjoy a traditional regional meal:
BRUSCHETTE (toasted bread garnished in a variety of ways) of a thousand of 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: Maccheroni, Ombrichelli (fresh pasta 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 Wild Boar, Mushrooms, Pork sausages or simple Pomarola (Tomato sauce). In Summer sauces may be prepared with fresh garden vegetables such as zucchini, eggplant, turnip greens, sweet peppers or others.
For the Main Course choose among many delicious meat dishes: Rabbit alla cacciatora, stewed Chicken or Rabbit Viterbese style, wild Boar with tomato sauce (very popular), roasted Pork, Porchetta etc.....
