Our very comfortable house in Bomarzo (connected to internet), small and quiet medieval village, fits 4 people.
It has a small terrace and at 300 meters walk stands our beautiful large garden of 2000 m2.
The house was entirely recently redone by an architect.
A public free parking is at the entry of the village.
From there you can go to swim in wonderful lakes (Bolsena, Vico) or enjoy hot springs the all year. There is also a large variety of walks in the countryside.
Nearest seaside is 70 km (Tarquinia);
Bomarzo is idealy situated in the north of Latium, at the border of Tuscany, and Umbria, giving the opportunity to visit the main art towns of central Italy, even by train.
You can leave the car, even overnite, without paying, at the local train station attigliano , 6 km away: Rome (80 km), Spoleto (45), Orvieto (40), Perugia (90), Assisi (90).
It was an historical fief of the Orsini family, whose castle is at the edge of the village . But Bomarzo's chief claim to fame is a garden usually referred to as the Bosco Sacro (Sacred Grove) or, locally, Bosco dei Mostri (Monsters' Grove).
Our garden overlooks the church of Orsini Sacro Bosco and a splendid panorama of hills covered by olive and nut trees, At walking distance you will find amazing sights on archeologicals and caves of Etruscans, the original people of the region.
House sleeps 4.
two upstairs on the mezzanine with 2 good single beds that you can add if you need, and a queen size bed in the master bedroom.
No need to bring your labtop or linen. Everything is there.
You can have your meals on the small terrace.
In our garden with a splendid view, you will find chairs, tables and chaises longues. Ideal for pique-nique, sunbathing, and for children to play..
The village is very quiet the all year. It becomes a bit more lively in august when few shows and sometimes dinners are organised on the small piazza in front of the church.
It is like to be in an italian movie.
House available all year.

Intenzionati a tornare! siamo stati, purtroppo, solo 2 notti ma saremmo voluti rimanere molto di più...Cyril e Béatrice sono estremamente disponibili, gentili e sempre tempestivi nel risponderci.
Anche la signora Rosa Maria che si occupa della ricezione è stata gentilissima.
Per la casa che dire....è ancora più bella che nelle foto! curata nei particolari e arredata con molto gusto, e anche essendo una vecchia struttura nel borgo storico di Bomarzo è estremamente luminosa. Insomma...quando siamo entrati ci siamo sentiti subito a casa!!!
Anche durante l'inverno è perfetta essendoci il camino che dà quel fascino in più.
La consigliamo assolutamente a tutti....noi torneremo!
Bomarzo is a real piece of Dolce Vita. The house, located in the old part of the village, sure adds to this experience. Rustic on the outside and modern inside. The enormous garden is a 5min. walk away. Grab yourself a book, get one of the chairs from the shed and enjoy the sun. These 10 days were real holidays for us. One factor which we of course must not forget to mention is Maria Rosa and her husband Piero, the neighbours. After arriving late in the evening and nearly starving we were more than happy to come upon a plate of pasta and a bottle of wine (say thank you from us, will you?). The towns of Orvieto and Viterbo are only a short drive away. And it is definitely worth it.
Thank you so much, we hope to return to Bomarzo sometime!
If you're thinking of going don't think again, just go!
We arrived late at night and Maria Rosa, the housekeeper and neighbor, was kind enough to prepared a wonderful homemade. We had a wonderful evening with her and her husband Piero!
We couldn't have had a better italian reception!!
Besides this, the house is perfect! It's charming (stone house renovated inside and very well decorated) comfortable (great bed, kitchen and shower!) and it's located in the historic center of beautiful Bomarzo, with plenty of day trips making this a perfect spot to explore the region. Don't miss parqui dei monstri and the civita di bagnoregio. Thank you so much Cyril et Beatrice!! We will definitely go back!!
