• Dine on authentic local foods and wines during the Sagras (culinary festivals) in Soriano's neighbouring villages during the summer. You can see the fireworks from the Sagre sparkling across the valley from the comfort of the cottage. Soriano's own chestnut-themed Sagra is in October.

• Walkers can enjoy the scenic trails around the Cimini National Forest. While eating wild figs and blackberries you might stumble across the abandoned 15th century church in the heart of the woods.

• The above is a small selection. The list goes on from beautiful Etruscan ruins to sampling coffee at Lini, the local roaster!

Location description from owner

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.

Soriano nel Cimino

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.

“View,solitude,base for touring,comfort and hospitality”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2013

A very warm and hospitable host. Scenic charm and beautiful location in the hills of Soriano. The bonus was picking wild strawberries and cherries and sipping our aperitivo on the terrace!

Owner's reply: Thank you for the great review! Hopefully see you next year for more cherry picking!!

“Live the Italian life in this stunning cottage”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2013

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.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the great review! It has been a pleasure meeting you!
