About the villa

Just refurbished | Ground floor bedrooms | Very private yet within easy access of amenities

Tranquil gardens nestle amid 250 hectares of private land, surrounded by chestnut and oak woods, and encircling this elegant family villa in Lazio. Outside, in the dappled shade of a dominant tree and colourful flowering shrubs, an al fresco terrace is idyllic for leisurely lunches, while broad lawns and a rose garden hem the swimming pool in its sunny setting. Inside the innately welcoming house, attractive country furnishings are framed by huge beams and hand-made tiled floors. The big and beautiful living room has inviting sofas, newly re-upholstered in cream linen, and a ten-seater dining table. A large working kitchen comes complete with a fireplace barbecue. And each of the five bedrooms is individually designed in attractive country style. On the first floor there are two very spacious double rooms at either end with en suite bathrooms and two twin bedrooms in the middle with en suite or adjacent shower rooms. The villa is ideal for two families sharing  or friends and is well placed for varied activities. Woodland walks in the surrounding oak and chestnut woods could reveal wild orchids. There are thermal springs at Terme dei Papi, 10km away, Viterbo, former seat of the Popes is within just 15km and tennis and golf within 20km. Tarquinia’s beach where umbrellas and sunbeds can be rented and with an excellent beach restaurant is within easy reach. Shops in Cura di Vetralla are just 1km from the villa. This is a very good choice for an informal, easy family holiday.
