Property description

The villa of the aqueduct is a beautiful and extremely unique villa built in the 1500s around the ruins of an ancient aqueduct.

Located in a dramatic position in a hilltown at the bend of Tiber River, the villa has beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.

• We also offer all inclusive, 8 days private guided TOURS: Please refer to our site at leterrae . com

The home was recently completely renovated to both preserve the historic architecture and make it a luxurious retreat for the modern visitor. The exterior, decorated in the 16th century with etchings called sgraffiti, has been meticulously restored by a team of world class art restorers. The interior has been beautifully updated by the owners - two architects specializing in historic preservation and design.

The elegant and spacious home has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a grand living room, state of the art kitchen, and a landscaped garden terrace with sweeping panoramic views. The villa is tastefully furnished with both antique and modern furniture.

The well-connected villa is in the perfect location - 3 km to a train station, you can easily reach Rome in 45 minutes, Florence in 2 hours, and countless other prime destinations easily.

Located in the medieval hilltown of Orte, you can enjoy an authentic experience in the heart of Italy.

The villa of the aqueduct is also a beautiful and unforgettable venue for intimate weddings and celebrations.

Choose our beautifully appointed historic villa for your trip to Italy.
The home, in addition to being a tremendous value (3500 sq ft for up to 8 people at very competitive all-inclusive rates), is spacious, light-filled, elegant, and full of carefully designed architectural details.

'Italy is a dream that you'll keep returning to for the rest of your life' - our villa is worth being part of that dream!
