Tastes are ancients and full of flavor - this area is reach in a popular and tasty italian food tradition.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 1700

Why Capranica, Viterbo, Italy:
It was not so long ago, that this place was a farm, cows for milk, horses, pigs, chickens... And in the 15th century, long time ago, in the more ancient and impressive building, there was a convent.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Sometimes is not easy to share an holiday in group (family, friends, collegues) and really enjoy it if you don't have enough space and peacefulness. More, nowadays this area maintains its beauty and silence, surrounded by the same, ancient and intact landscape of wood and hills, water sources, fields.
