YOUR ROMAN COUNTRY HOME
ESCAPE THE ORDINARY
Only one hour north Rome, a unique farmhouse with just the right dose of solitude and authenticity. We checked in and found a pretty unique place!
The region of Lazio is best known for being home to Italy’s great and ancient capital city of Rome, with its swarms of tourists pouring in at every hour of every day. The surrounding country and the tranquility and treasures it guards are familiar to very few. Perched amid the undulating hills around Viterbo and with woods as far as the eye can see, the house, whose roots date back to the 18th century, is part of a 30-hectare estate. Equipped with pool, vegetable gardens, roaming horses and grove after grove of ancient olive trees (and chestnuts!) you will discover the Italian countryside like nowhere else during your stay at this exclusive country home.

The Retreat is situated only one hour from the Eternal City, in one of the most authentic territory of the world, which include an organic garden, salt private swimming pool, relaxation areas and large green spaces among the olive groves. The Country House offers a refuge, a nest, a place that escapes the typical canons of holiday resorts.
Throughout the Retreat, you will enjoy the morning organic breakfast in the garden, discover the territory and enjoy informal cooking classes and learn how to make fresh pasta, ricotta cheese and traditional local dishes. We will use local vegetables from the farm and fresh fish from the lake of Vico and Bolsena. We will prepare delicious antipasti, primi piatti & dolci of the Tuscia tradition.
Creating many moments of happiness and cherished memories, relax in the exclusive and idyllic setting, the perfect place for families and corporate groups wishing to indulge in a bespoke service and experience.
The Country Home
If this is your thing, you really come to
love this place.
The Country Home is located within our 40-hectare organic farm. There is a centuries-old olive grove, a chestnut grove, a 10-hectare meadow where our horses graze freely, and a charming 4-hectare forest where you can walk freely and in autumn collect mushrooms and chestnuts. The Pool, located just outside the farmhouse, the swimming pool offers our guests a pleasant relaxation area where they can quietly read a book, enjoy one of our cocktails or savour a glass of good wine.
The luscious garden, with its slate grey pool and quiet places to read and relax, is one of the
highlights of this exclusive Country Home.
On summer evenings dinner is al fresco at a table laden with exquisite green pottery, baskets filled with flowers, and embroidered linen. The Country Home is located in a 100- acre pesticide free, organic property. A large garden surrounds the house. With a swimming pool, lounge areas, and dining tables, it offers numerous corners to relax.

The country home is located in a privileged area from which nature trails branch off that are also excellent for simple walks.
The surrounding area is not only one of beautiful verdant landscapes but also has a rich and historical heritage, and the list of places of interest to visit is endless. Only 10 km away is Viterbo, a walled mediaeval city which was once a papal see and has a magnificent 13th century papal palace, as well as thermal hot springs and spas. The UNESCO World Heritage site of the Necropolis of Tarquinia, dating back to the 7th century BC, has the only surviving evidence of Etruscan residential architecture, and is notable for its 200 frescoed tombs. And if Mannerism is your thing, then you are spoilt for choice. There is the stunning pentagonal Palazzo Farnese at Caprarola, only 20 km away. Italy’s ‘most beautiful park’, the architect Jacopo Vignola’s masterpiece, Villa Lante, whose grandiose 16th century gardens are overflowing with fountains, artificial lakes, waterfalls and caves is also only a few miles away. Finally, the dark and forested Parco dei Mostri is a Mannerist folly populated with terrifying sculpted ogres, dragons, animals and giants.
The proximity to the sea and the Vulcanic Lakes offers the guests the opportunity to take part in fun fishing trips. We will organise pleasant fishing days, which will be a fun experience even for the less experienced.
