Ancient house made of stones, on two levels, at Ischia di Castro, medieval village of the laziale maremma, in the reserve of Lamone, between Bolsena lake and the sea, half a hour driving from Tuscany coast, Viterbo, Pitigliano, the very close Thermae of Vulci, and that of Saturnia.

The space

If you want to experience the emotion to live in an ancient stable, totally restored with original or handmade materials, in a harmonic synthesis of modernity and tradition, in a quiet area of the village, it will be natural for you to park your vehicle in the central Regina Margherita Square, where the historical and noble Farnese family built their palace (the "Rocca", XI century), less than 100 metres from the house. This faces the lane (Via delle Piagge), a large and silent little square and the green of the gorge, surrounding the whole village, providing in the past protectio and a natural dimension. An external small area in front of the entrance, furnished with table and chairs, is available for your relaxed and dining moments. You absolutely have to experience the emotion of falling asleep admiring the sky full of stars , lying in your '800 wrought iron bed, glancing up to the skylight opening over your head.

Guest access

The alternative option to walk to the house, is to drive a small car no bigger than a FIAT Panda, because the place is located among old lanes, ending into an airy and quiet little square. Large steps take you to the first floor of the house, where the entrance is placed. On the street floor the two below cellars, ending in tufaceous caves, ensure adequate privacy.

Interaction with guests

The welcome is provided by the owners or, in alternative, by owners' confidential people.
Spoken idioms: Italian, English, Spanish.

Other things to note

The house is placed in an ideal position for the cultural, historical, natural richness of the territory, and for the wine and food traditions, synthesis of still highly alive cultures. of both Lazio and Tuscany. Out of the traditional circuits of the crowded tourism, it's the ideal place to put together economic accessibility and the ease to shortly reach places of big touristic interests. The Tuscany coast is close, while places like Argentario, Capalbio, Orbetello and its lagune, in addition to the natural reserve of Uccellina, take little more than one hour driving to reach. The very close Bolsena Lake, and he natural reserve Selva del Lamone, might be reached biking during a short tour. The Etruscan ruins of some neighbouring places and the close, historical towns of Pitigliano, Civita di Bagnoregio, Orvieto and Viterbo are interesting destinations for a tour also of few hours. The recent opening of the Thermae of Vulci (20 minutes driving) make your stay even more pleasant. GAY FRIENDLY.

This was the most amazing place to stay! Such a beautiful home. The perfect Italian experience. Daniela and her family greeted us when we arrived and showed us around the home. They made sure we were all taken care of and even had a lovely bottle of wine and some bread and salami for us. The apartment is in such a sweet quiet little town. Perfect if you want to get away and relax. I loved having my morning coffee and looking out at the beautiful view! So amazing. I hope to be back! Grazie Daniela!!!

Wer wirklich urlaubsbedürftig ist, ist in Ischia di Castro genau richtig! Das Haus ist eine sehr stillvoll eingerichtete Location. Traumhaft !! Für uns war es ein Bilderbuch Italien Urlaub. Das Haus liegt in einer superruhigen Lage, das Dorf Ischia ist immer eine Reise wert, auf Daniela kann man sich absolut verlassen. Jegliche Fragen wurden immer sofort beantwortet. Vielen Dank Daniela. Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder zu dir, sowie nach Ischia.

L'accoglienza del nostro host è stata insuperabile,Daniela è gentilissima,premurosa è (URL HIDDEN) ha fornito tutte le informazioni di cui avevamo bisogno. La casa strutturata su 2 livelli è curata in ogni dettaglio molto accogliente e arredata con grande gusto dai mobili alle rifiniture su pietra,all'interno non manca nulla. La struttura ha una vista sul verde di Ischia di Castro,il silenzio gradevole che con la natura è qualcosa di speciale. Situata nel centro storico offre varie opportunità di svago quali escursioni nelle terre etrusche,giro turistico del lago e mare a pochi km. Da non farsi mancare la degustazione del l'olio di Canino a 3 km. Le cantine dei vini etruschi a Cellere,le svariate trattorie del posto eccellenti.... Insomma abbiamo avuto davvero in ottima esperienza , consigliato a famiglie e coppie , ci torneremo presto !!!
