The Lazio region
The region of Lazio, rich of culture and nature, is situated in the centre of Italy.
Hilly landscapes with olive- and vine cultivations and the lakes Bracciano and Bolzena characterizes the north of the region. The culturally heydays are the famous Etruscan excavation and the sulphur-wells, where you can spoil your skin under the open sky.
Rome is the culturally and economically center as well as the capital city of Italy, located directly in the heartland of Lazio.
Mountains are in the south, rising above 2000 meters; lower, heading the coast the gentle green slopes are overgrown with orange-and lemon trees and olive-and vine cultivations.
The coast is uneven, sandy beaches alternate rocky cliffs, suggestive little bays and hills are covered with Mediterranean spontaneous vegetation (macchia mediterranea).
Thousands of years of history signed the landscape, increasing the cultural value of this land: Excavations from the Roman and the pre-Roman time (Etruscan, Ausonia and Aurunci), medieval towns, monasteries and convents, make the stay in Lazio always an astonishing experience.
The region has many nature reserves and little protected oasis; very beautiful for short walks, hiking tours or trekking.
The Garigliano river natural park at the board with Campania offers multiple opportunities to come in contact with the lush river vegetation and the wild animals that inhabit along the banks.
Thermal springs are to find in the region of Viterbo, Tivoli and Fiuggi and in the south in Suio.
Located in the south of the region, The Pontine Islands join sensational nature, clear water, characteristic fisher towns and Roman culture. The main Island Ponza is also called pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
The food and wine tradition might deserve its own chapter: fish and seafood on the coast; rustically cuisine in the countryside (meat and sausage, cheese and a lot of different vegetables), buffalo mozzarella, and olives of Gaeta are only some examples.
Lots of tasty and important wines are available for experts and curious tasters, thanks to the unique warm weather and the composition of the soil.
The area between south of Lazio and northern Campania, named Campania Felix by the ancient Roman, produces since centuries a particular wine, called Falernus, one of the many wine excellence of the area.
Thermal springs are to find in the region of Viterbo, Tivoli, Fiuggi and in the south in Suio.
Fish and seafood you can get in all varieties as a speciality at the coast; a rustically cuisine interior (meat and sausage, cheese and a lot of different vegetables).
The buffalo mozzarella and the olives of Gaeta are an exceptionally culinary speciality.

Thank you for your rewiew for the Pony Ranch and your suggestions. First of all, I'm happy that you enjoyed your stay on the farm.
Some good news for the next year: there will be a washing machine for all guests, further internet wi-fi in the restaurant. Regarding some inscructions I have spoken with the owner Luigi on Sunday. When the olive harvest is finished we will meet and write insctructions in english and german, so future guests can find information in the apartments. The kitchen is furnished only with the necessary for cooking, I will suggest to add something more. If your are searching something larger for the next year; I suggest to rent Casa Monte di Scauri in Scauri. With garden, only some walking minutes from the bay and the sandy beach.
