Atina house description

This charming 400 year old house is the first in a row of five stone houses, off the main road, with the Abruzzo Mountains as your backdrop . The fully equipped open-plan kitchen leads out into a cosy living area with fireplace and Sky TV. The original vaulted ceilings prove for excellent insulation, keeping the place refreshingly cool in the summer. The kitchen is carefully decorated in unique charming country décor and features a hob, oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and everything you’ll need for an evening meal. The ground floor boasts a recently renovated large bathroom which includes a hydro-massage tub for 2 people. A washing machine room completes this floor.


Spacious 3 storey country home: The first floor includes two spacious connected bedrooms – one with a double bed, another with 2 single beds. This floor also includes a study and a bathroom with toilet and multi jet shower. The second floor features two more separate bedrooms and a third bathroom with bath, toilet and bidet. Outside there is a small patio area and parking.
The house is an ideal base for guests who want to enjoy breathtaking views with stunning sunsets along with outstanding idyllic natural landscapes in a peaceful rural setting on the edge of the nearby Abruzzo Natural Park.

There's plenty to do in the area: Guests of this farm house accommodation can fill their itinerary with plenty of area attractions and activities. Because of its positioning, most places of interest are within easy access – such as, Cassino (Montecassino Abbey), the Etruscan towns of Atina and Sora - both built before Rome
For daytrips Rome, Naples, Pompei, Vesuvis, Capri and the Amalfi Coast can be done. The Abruzzo National Park is on your doorstep.
A ten minute walk will take you to the nearest restaurant, mini market, chemist and local bar - English is widely spoken in this area. In the nearby picturesque village of Casalattico there is a traditional pizzeria.
A fifty minute drive takes you to the beautiful beaches of Gaeta and Sperlonga with its amazing fish restaurants. Ferries can be taken to the lesser known islands of Ponza or Ventotenne, well worth a visit.


The local Etruscan town of Atina is a short drive away, so guests

Your Home-Away-From-Home In Italy!: This 400 year old traditional stone house is situated in the small hamlet of Largo Vallone in a beautiful mountainous area of undiscovered Italy. It is conveniently situated only 30 minutes from the main Rome/Naples A1 Autostrada. The beautiful hidden valley, combines traditional mountain tranquillity and/or is ideally situated for exploring the immediate area or day trips. A ten minute drive from the house takes you to two very well equipped public outdoor swimming pools. There is a water park just before Cassino. About 45 minutes away by car is Italy’s newest theme park adjacent to a wonderful designer outlet centre. Sport activities are available such as, cycling (very popular in this area), go-carting, horse riding and mountain trekking. Organised trekking trips can be booked with a local guide. The area is steeped in history, Etruscan, Roman and WW2 - museums can be found in many of the villages.

                          Car: Recommended

                          The village of Casalattico is about a half hour walk from the house. It is very characteristic with wonderful views. Apart from houses, there is a pizzeria and a post office. At one kilometre you can find the local restaurant where you can taste traditional dishes and wine from the area and the bar is where you can meet up with the locals. The Etruscan town of Atina is 10 min. by car. On Mondays you can browse the local market or sit in the sun at one of the bars sipping coffee and people watch. Thursdays is market day in a town called Sora, a twenty minute drive from here, again an old town built by the Etruscan. 10 minutes past Sora takes you to the town of Isola Liri, unique because of the beautiful waterfall that is found in the centre of the town. You are spoilt for choice by the many local restaurants within the area, all reasonable priced. Take a drive to one of the many hill top villages to experience the traditional festas enjoyed by all the family.

                          Other Activities: trekking

                          Golf: La Grotte is about 15 minutes drive from Casalattico. The golf course is set among olive groves and non members can pay a day rate to play. Clubs can be hired on-site. The course is small, 9 hole and is merely for enjoyment. There is also another golf club in Fiuggi, about an hours drive. .

                          Ski: The nearest ski resort is Prato di Mezzo about 30 km. The resort is quite small but very convenient if you only want to spend a short time skiing. Other resorts are about 75 - 80 minute drive in the scenic Abruzzo Mountains. These resorts are bigger and better equipped with a choice of different graded pistes.

                          They are set in typical Italian mountain villages and ski equipment may be hired.
