Property description

A 'Wow!' property, and our second home. Private, quiet, spacious villa, with own olive grove, vineyard & woodland totalling 13 Hectares (~32 acres), 1km from medieval village. Private: 12 x 6m infinity pool (with remote control child-safe cover) & underwater seat along west side, international size boule court, extensive terraces, outside wood oven. The Villa is located in the River Tiber ('Tivere' in Italian) conservation area, and the river can (just!) be seen from the garden, together with, in the other direction, Umbria. The Villa is 7km from the Autostrada, and the river crossed on the way is the Tivere. Detailed photo directions are provided, and arrival & departure is very easy.
Rural villa sleeping 8 in peace & comfort. Floor area of approximately 300m2 on 2 ½ floors, together with a roof terrace. The house and gardens are not overlooked.
On all sides, the 360o views are impressive, and overlook the valley of the River Tiber (Tivere) to the west, agricultural land and hill villages all around with a backdrop of unpopulated mountains and the Soratte mountain to the south west. Village shops are 1.2km, a 10-15 minutes undulating walk. Supermarkets are within 10-15 minutes by car.

Internet radios and iPad & Apple docking station with speakers, excellent wi-fi and a pleasant, private, spacious office with table & chairs and own WC overlooking the pool as a quiet work place (if you really must on holiday!) Phone signal for mobile phones. Satellite TV, DVD player and 100 + DVD's - mostly English language.

Rome 1 hour by train, about 8 Euro (station 5 minutes away by car) or Autostrada.
Sun (and shade available) all day. Great terraces for sundowners: three large outside tables each with eight chairs. 11 sun-loungers, 8 sun-chairs, small tables, 4 sun umbrellas, etc, etc. Local manager and wife live locally discretely supplying support if needed.
Responsive owner is delighted to interact with you with information you can share with your family and friends.
The rural Villa and its grounds is completely private and not overlooked, but close to the village. It is well back from its secondary road access, and with electric gates, so safe for children to explore its 32 acres/13 hectares. Either by train (station is 5 minutes away by car) or via autostrada central Rome is only an hour away.
Local places to visit:: In no particular order: Vescovio - ~20-25 minutes. Nice little restaurant next to a very old church with underground crypt. Farfa - religious little village. 8th Century I think. One or two restaurants outside village. ~30 minutes distant. Casperia - visible from the east garden. Hillside village with many steps and view and a few bars. ~30 minutes. Poggio Mirterto (good market – mostly clothes - third ? Friday of the month) Viterbo - Medieval small (like a film set!) - maybe ~1 hour. Etruscan restaurant recommended for excellent and cheap local food and grappa (Euro 1 per glass!). Some pleasant shopping streets too. Also antique shops. Gavignano – nothing much about it, but an interesting market on the third Sunday (or is the last Sunday?) of the month. Orvieto. Hill top town with a lot of history and catacombs. One hour north on Autostrada. Bagno Regio - AMAZING (walking uphill) access to medieval hill top village - 15 minutes from Orvieto and virtually unknown to non-locals.

Rome & the best beach: Ostia beach west of Rome - the best. The others are overdeveloped. This is pretty natural, with sand and dunes. Great ' Meditterane' beach restaurant & sun-bed and umbrella hire at Km 8.5 - excellent fish. Arrive early in summer as parking is along the road and limited. Tip the man who appears to look after you car about 3 Euro for the day (but that is the only charge, and if he is still there when you leave, he'll help you into the traffic flow.)

Rome: culture, shopping and people watching - 1 hour.

Some recommendations : Personal favourite restaurants and destinations notes are provided to clients by e mail.

Former guests have enjoyed golf: several courses nearby - details on request.

A car is recommended. Both Rome airports - about one hours drive away if the traffic is kind - have car hire companies, which do not exist locally to Stimigliano. A GPS for your car is highly recommended to navigate the country roads and/or Rome.

Collection from Stimigliano station can be arranged for arrival and departure (but note: no car hire firms or taxis locally - this is real Italy with few tourists.) Fumicino and Ciampino airports (Rome's two airports) are each about 1 hour from Villa Elefanti by car. There is a direct train line from Fumicino airport to Stimigliano (look for trains going to Orte end station - they go though central Rome, but no changes are needed. There are usually 2 an hour: check timetables at the stations. Tickets are cheap and must be validated before travel.)

Car: Recommended

Lazio is the province of Rome. Although more accessible, less touristy and therefore cheaper than Tuscany to the north, the Lazio agricultural landscape has many similarities and hilltop villages and history. A car is recommended. Rome, culture, shopping and enjoyment in many forms - 1 hour by car or train. A great beach at Ostia. Numerous small villages steeped in history are with 15 - 30 minutes by car. In no particular order: Vescovio- good restaurant next to a very old church with underground crypt. Farfa - 8th Century religious village. Casperia - visible from the east garden, hilltop village with a few bars. Poggio Miterto (good market – mostly clothes - third Friday of the month). Orvieto, hill top town with a lot of history and catacombes. Bagno Regio (75 mins) - AMAZING (walking uphill) access to medieval hill top village - 15 minutes from Orvieto and virtually unknown to non-locals. There is a golf course about 15 minutes away at a hotel. Written info sent to clients
