This charac­terful house was built around 200 years ago, its back nestling against Il Monte, one of the rocky outcrops that charac­terise this side of the smal town of Capena. You can still see and feel the natural curves of the tuff (a type of rock consisting of consol­idated volcanic ash) in the rear walls of the cantina on the ground floor and the bathroom upstairs.

Both floors are almost entirely open plan, giving this compact house a very airy feel. The property has central heating and is fully restored with exposed beams. High speed wireless internet makes it ideal for those who wish to keep in touch with friends or do a little work while on holiday. The house is proving very popular as a writer's retreat: it offers all the benefits of a cosy and peaceful bolthole with plenty of friendly local colour when you open the door.

Casa Marconi sleeps 2/?4 with one bedroom. A cot, high chair and other baby equipment is available.

The two-????storey house is located on the narrow road leading to Piazza del Popolo and the ancient Rocca in the old quarter of Capena, right in the middle of the historical centre.

The coastal resort of Fregene is a 45 minute drive from Capena, and the town of Sperlonga is approximately 1.5 hours away by car. However, the best and nearest place to cool off in Summer is in a lake. Lake Bracciano is a 45 minute drive away, and Lake Martignano, which is as little more off the beaten track, is also a 45 minute drive from Capena.


Capena is a thriving village of 5,500 inhabitants near the Sabine Hills. Despite its proximity to the city centre (it lies just 35km north of Rome along the Via Tiberina) the village retains a very distinct rural flavour – and many of the older residents have hardly ever set foot in the metropolis.

The apartments are located in and around the town’s ancient Rocca, a rocky outcrop that initially housed a medieval fortress and settlement, later superseded by a Renaissance monastery. The monastery was gradually sold off to private individuals – many of them artists – in the seventies. One of the best-known artists living and working in Capena today is Rosina Wachtmeister. The sixteenth-century building then became the heart of a small separate community made up of a picturesque jumble of houses, stairways and cobbled streets with a relaxed bohemian feel.

There are several outdoor pools in Capena, which are open during the summer. In addition, there are several thermal baths in the area, the largest of which is the Therme dei Papi.

Local festivals include a wine festival in October. There is also a torchlit procession of masked figures carrying holy relics on Easter Monday.
