Up the wooden steps to the pool, for a lazy swim and an inviting lounger. All you hear are the birds, the wind, and the church bells on Sunday. This elevated farmhouse follows the slope of a hill so its terraces and views are among the loveliest in the Lazio.
The ground floor has become an open-plan living room of space and light, with books, a wood-burner, TV and wifi. Prepare a meal in the sociable kitchen; drift outside to the barbecue. Upstairs are the bedrooms, the master room by far the largest, all three with huge views.
You couldn’t be closer to the village; its southern gateway is 50 paces. Enter the arch, head for the square, and enjoy a coffee or a gelato. Seek out the sacred sites – Madonna del Rifugio, St Maria del Piano, St Andrea, the Chapel of St Pietro. You can hop on a train from here too.
