The apartment - Holiday rental near Rome

We are delighted to present a luxury, completely restored and furnished open-space apartment, in the wonderful Medieval city of Viterbo, Central Italy (70 km far from Rome).

The geographical area is known as Tuscia, located between the regions Tuscany, and Umbria, and the city of Rome. It is characterised by its beauty of artistic and natural masterpieces. Every corner is a vibrant evidence of the Etruscan civilization which once thrived here and where the vestiges of these epochs are harmoniously juxtaposed with charming Medieval quarters and splendid Renaissance and Baroque palazzi. This area has a wealth of natural and cultural sights, many of which are little-known and are off the usual tourist-track  and are, as such, particularly suggestive.

Viterbo, the main town in the province, has a perfectly preserved Medieval old-town. Particularly in San Pellegrino, the central borough  of the old city, there is still tangible evidence of the immensity of the Papal wealth of that period. The ancient houses in the San Pellegrino quarter are often home to many art and antique shops where you can find original or hand made objects to purchase (

The Tuscia is the perfect place to spend peaceful hours in the safest of environments. Shady lanes and roads with breath-taking views will lead you through the woods which cover the Cimini Hills , where the air is oxygen-rich thanks to the concentration of centuries-old trees and where you can enjoy long walks on foot or treks on horse-back, surrounded by an uncontaminated nature which forms the back-drop for the lake which was formed in the crater of a volcano - Lago di Vico.
