A charming cottage with breathtaking views situated in the heart of Tuscia, land of the Etruscan civilization which spreads across northern Lazio, Tuscany and western Umbria. Ideal for a couple.

it has an open plan sitting room with a mezzanine bedroom, a bathroom with a shower, an open plan kitchenette and dining area, a terrace, an outdoor wood-fired oven, an outdoor dining area under the vine overlooking the garden and distant views.

Amenities are: central heating, wi-fi Internet, Satellite TV, CD Player, table tennis, mini soccer table, portable cot and optional cleaning/laundry facilities.

The cottage is situated on the slopes of the Cimini mountains, with truly breathtaking views of rolling countryside and distant mountains, on the outskirts of the medieval town of Soriano nel Cimino, 20 mins from the Papal city of Viterbo, 45 mins from scenic Orvieto, Civita di Bagnoregio and Lake Bolsena and one hour from the many well known attractions in Umbria and Tuscany. Central Rome and both Ciampino and Fiumicino airport are only 90 minutes away.

The area is renowned for its archeologiocal findings from the Etruscan civilization. Set amongst the Cimini national forest and its many lakes, the area is also known for the many thermal springs.

On an architectural note, it is well worth a visit to the Renaissance gardens at nearby Villa Lante in Bagnaia, the Farnese palace of Caprarola and the Monster gardens in Bomarzo.

Life is very local and not touristy, despite it being so well located for Rome, Tuscany and Umbria. Soriano is a very friendly town with all the necessary amenities and some excellent and reasonably priced restaurants. There is also lots of good eating in surrounding towns.

The Lazio region

The region is called Tuscia, land of the Etruscan civilization which spreads across northern Lazio, Tuscany and western Umbria.

The Cimini mountains are the ideal place to stay in the height of summer, because of the altitude at around 600-800 meters, it is a pleasant area to retreat after a busy day sightseeing in the heath.

The area is also famous for its summer local food and wine festivals called "Sagra", all towns have one sooner or later. During periods of festivity some towns also organise fireworks displays which at times can be viewed from the cottage.

Viterbo

The area is renowned for its archeologiocal findings from the Etruscan civilazion. Set amongst the Cimini national forest and its many lakes, the area is also known for the many thermal springs.

On an architectural note, it is well worth a visit to the Renaissance gardens at nearby Villa Lante in Bagnaia, the Farnese palace of Caprarola and the Monster gardens in Bomarzo.

Life is very local and not touristy, despite it being so well located for Rome, Tuscany and Umbria. Soriano is a very friendly town with all the necessary amenities and some excellent and reasonably priced restaurants. There is also lots of good eating in surrounding towns.

"Live the Italian life in this stunning cottage"

Elisabetta was a charming and extremely helpful host during our visit The cottage has everything a traveller desires to relax and feel at home. The decor is stunning and comfortable. Elisabettas recommendations for dining places in Soriano were excellent. We also enjoyed local produce and wine while sitting on our patio overlooking the fabulous views over the valley below. With our hired car we were able explore our local surroundings the highlights for us being the fabulous garden at Villa Lante, Farnese Palace and gardens and the ancient Park of Monsters at Bomarzo. We hope to visit again and highly recommend this delightful cottage.

Thank you for the great review! It has been a pleasure meeting you!
