BLUE 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 a heaven for relaxation. 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.
Surrounded by vineyards and olive groves.Castel Cellesi is also the place for wine and food lovers !! First of all you must make sure you have a bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (possibly the one produced in Castel Cellesi...excellent) on the table, then enjoy the traditional dishes of the area:
BRUSCHETTE (toasted bread garnished in a variety of ways) of a thousand different colours and flavours.
ACQUCOTTA is the name of the typical local soup prepared with chicory, potatoes, tomatoes, onions , hot pepper, dry bread and olive oil.
PASTA dishes (the most popular in the Tuscia area):
Maccheroni, Lombrichelli (fresh pasta with only flour and water), potato Gnocchi, Fettuccine, Pappardelle or Polenta. These may be served with 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 using 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...
Don't miss to taste the famous wines produced in the area such as:
the Red EST! EST! EST!, the White ORVIETO or the Dessert Wine ALEATICO.
Guests will have access to a fully equipped BBQ area (to be shared with GREEN HOUSE) for cooking Lunch or Dinner and and enjoy their food on the spot. The BBQ area is in the open air but mostly protected by a roof. It is provided with a large table and many seats.

The beauty of the Lazio region is often obscured by the fame of Rome but the whole region (especially the Tuscia area) has a lot to offer besides the Eternal City: a wealth of art, history, culinary traditions and culture your stay at Castel Cellesi will help to disclose. A vacation to discover off-the-beaten-track places but also a time spent learning to prepare a true Tuscian meal (if you wish), tasting local wines and lot of genuine, rare foods.

We expect respect to the property
A lovely spot, we were welcomed by Eddie and were treated to a delicious dinner made by Marcella. The village is very quiet, therefore do not expect to see usual tourists shops here. The Blue house has character but it doesn't have a view, however the pool area does (it is just a short walk away) We enjoyed our time and it was well situated to explore this beautiful region. You will need your own transport.
a lovely little house in a totally enchanting village. the lady who runs the only bar is delightful and our local host eddie was charming and very helpful. it would have been nice to have somewhere outside to eat.
The Blue house is a nice little cottage located in a sweet small Italian village. Host Eddie informed us about the area and activities, which was great! It definitely is a great place to relax and enjoy beautiful cities in the area. The children loved the pool with the great view, but found it a bit difficult not to be able to enjoy it between 1 and 4 pm - as it would be too noisy. And we very much enjoyed the hospitality of our Italian neighbours!!!
I was very pleased to welcome this lovely family to Castel Cellesi. I was so sorry to hear that they felt their children could not enjoy the swimming pool from 1.00pm to 4.00pm.The pool is open all day for people to enjoy. It is just that after lunch we ask people to be a little quiet around the pool, as it is traditionally the time when people rest in the village.
Nice place, charming location - and everything was fine. Great service from Ed:-). To relax it's a good offer... You have to have a car...
