Licia and Dave were gracious, helpful and considerate hosts who made every effort to accommodate. Location was great and flat was warm and comfortable.
4 giorni indisturbati! attorno solo allevamenti di pecore, il sole nei finestroni grandi del salone tutta la mattina, una luce bellissima. Molto semplice, ma davvero bella. Licia, Dave e Federico sono stati fantastici e sempre disponibili.
La casa è molto particolare, sicuramente una location particolare in cui trascorrere del tempo immersi nella natura. Sicuramente si presta meglio a soggiorni estivi, d'inverno risulta essere poco confortevole a causa del freddo, ma rimane un posto non ordinario.
October 2013. We really enjoyed our 5 day stay at the stone house. Licia was in Scotland but her mum, Marie, looked after us. She pointed out places to visit and even invited us around for dinner one night even though she spoke limited English. From afar, Licia gave us excellent directions by SMS to find the stone house and also later on, to locate a nearby ancient site called Corvanio.
The stone house was very clean and comfortable and was well located to nearby attractions. Grocery shopping was available in both Grotte Santo Stefano [2 kms] and Vitorchiano [5 kms]. No issues with parking but the reality is that you really do need a car to get around here. Unfortunately there was no WiFi or washing machine available at the time of our stay.
My wife became attached to the cute little farm cat which we fed each day. All in all it was a great stay and we hope to return one day.
This rustic house has a lot of potential. The newer parts of the house are beautiful, however, the house itself was unkept, inside and out - dust and insects abounded. The beautiful scenery was difficult to enjoy through very dirty windows. We did enjoy the area (visiting Civita, Vitorchiano), A car is necessary to get there (with a GPS) as we saw no trains, taxis or buses travelling close to the house. Coming stocked with groceries is advised and note that the kitchen has a hot plate, a microwave, and a fridge. There is also an oven which is fuelled by wood that you are required to (email hidden)bably not ideal for larger groups. Hot water ran out after day one.. Beds were great!
We had a great time in the stone house: much space, style and charm, tranquil and beautiful surroundings. The house is clean and well-kept with many unique details we loved. A good base to explore the little villages or bigger towns from there. Licia and her family were most helpful and very friendly. They even lent us a bike and gave us a lift to do our shopping. We got good tips from them about the area as well. A perfect getaway from the city, though mind: it's a bit unhandy without a car.
We had a wonderful time in Licia's stone house. The house is even bigger than the pictures can show. It has a HUGE fireplace downstairs (for all those pyromaniacs out there like us;-) and another one upstairs. Licia was a nice host to us: she gave good suggestions for daytrips and nice restaurants. Be sure to visit il monastero in Viterbo; you will have the biggest pizza served in europe there (on two plates). A word of advice though: rent a car before you come to the stone house. It is a remote (and special) place.
If we'll return to the beautiful surroundings of the Tuscia region we will stay with Licia again.
A peaceful and relaxing farm house! Licia was a great host, driving me to and from the train, and even lending me her bicycle. Very conveniently located for exploring charming towns, like Viterbo and Orvieto. I wish I could upload a photograph as part of my review, because views from the upstairs were truly gorgeous. I'm sure I'll fondly remember watching a shepherd guiding his sheep to pasture.
Licia's stone house is a great place to plan a getaway in the country. The large arch windows are beautiful. We met her brother and he gave us the keys. Licia was also available through email and gave excellent recommendations for exploring the surrounding area. We had a great time and recommend this house especially for larger groups. There is plenty of room :)
An isolated old farmhouse.
We sat outside and saw the Milky Way.
Clean and extremely spacious.
No air conditioning and it was a hot night but tolerable.
My wife and daughter were quite put out with me that I had not arranged to stay longer. It's a place where one could stay a month and write a book.
Hard to find and the usual host was out of town. The substitute hosts did not have workable cellphone contact. Due to a miscommunication they waited for us by the side of the road for hours. Extraordinarily generous concern, and we feel is a isolated event, but make sure that the communication and plans are crystal clear beforehand.
E' stato un vero piacere ospitarla e indirizzarla per le vie di napoli, simpatica, socievole ma tranquilla spero che mi torni presto a trovare.
La raccomendo vivamente
Licia is a very nice guest! Friendly and respectful. Very interested in the city! Strongly recommend!
Licia è una persona molto piacevole con cui si possono condividere molte cose. Speriamo di riaverla ancora da noi!
He conocido a los padres de Licia y ha sido un placer , al principio no nos entendiamos muy bien, pero pronto con un poco de ingles otro de italiano y otro poco de español, nos entendimos perfectamente, es una pareja muy amable. ordenada y como son hosting en Roma , tenia experiencia en la convivencia con las demas personas, realmente ha sido un placer
