Ameneties: Just a five minutes car ride away in podere Casone, you will find several nice restaurants serving high quality foods made with local ingredients. For travellers who don't like driving too far away, the nearest train station (Alviano) offers daily trains almost every hour to Rome's Termini station, Florence's Santa Maria Novella station, and many other major Italian cities. The owners of the property will be glad to give suggestions and recommendations for daily trips to cities like Todi, Orvieto, Assisi, Viterbo, Roma, Siena, Arezzo, Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano and many archaeological sites like Tarquinia, Sovana and Tuscania. Private drivers are also available upon request.
Civita : This very inspirational town can only be reached by a pedestrian bridge and is very close to our villa. It is built on a soft volcanic stone, called tufo, which has eroded creating an historic example of integrated ecological design. That's why the view is so spectacular in the ever-changing light. This town surely has richness not found in other modern cities. Civita has preserved much of its medieval character and still has traces of Early Roman and Etruscan civilization. Don't be surprised if, while walking through in Civita, you feel like you are walking through another era.
The house is for 4 persons. An additional charge will be asked in the cold season for heater.

Podere 'Il Casone' is strategically located on the border of two central regions: Umbria, called 'Green Heart of Italy', and Lazio. It is east of Tuscany (Siena 1 hour 1/2) and north of Rome (1 hour by car). Casone is 20 minutes north of exit Attigliano on the A1 Autostrada del sole. The rural landscape offers forested hillsides, vineyards, lush farmland, streams, mountains and the beautiful Tiber Valley, rich in small medieval hillside towns. The Civita Valley is particularly evocative because of its unique and breathtaking view. Civita sits majestically on top of a hill surrounded by a wonderful canyon. For this natural beauty, the village has been chosen by artists as one of the most inspirational and attractive places in Italy. The artistic season of Civita is in August (opera, musical and theatrical performances). The emotional village-wide live Nativity Play at Christmas is getting very popular. This area considers a sophisticated alternative to other crowded touristy cities.
