RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE (CIR CODE: 55.20.52). An 20-hectare estate, L'Olivaia, dotted with ordered rows of olive trees that stretching to the ends of the property, is the picturesque setting for the San Martino Country House; this beautiful villa, recently renovated in its entirety, is situated in the Tuscia, in the province of Viterbo, a large area north of Rome, of great naturalistic value and which preserves an historical, archaeological and artistic heritage of prime importance. Guests will appreciate the comfort guaranteed by the functional and cosy rooms, furnished and completed with particular attention to detail, as well as the tranquil atmosphere of the various areas in the well-maintained garden where they can relax in total privacy: the newly-constructed pool, the lounge areas and a play area equipped with a professional ping pong table. The villa is set in an excellent geographical position; the Eternal City is about 40 km away, but there are many tourist spots in the vicinity to be explored: Lake Bracciano with many picturesque medieval villages along its banks, the Etruscan settlements of Tarquinia, the so-called " Papal City "of Viterbo, famous as well for its thermal waters. The excellent road links will quickly take you to the beautiful beaches of the Tyrrhenian coast. L’Olivaia is certified Organic and D.O.P. Tuscia. It is laid out on the hills of Tuscia, between the Roman amphitheater of Sutri and the ancient Via Francigena, at the center of four volcanic lakes that determine optimum climatic conditions for the development of the olive. The olive grove stretches of about 20 Ha with over 7000 olive trees and is organized for fields and cultivars in order to allow the separate collection of cultivars Leccino, Frantoio, Maurino and indigenous including Caninese and Bolzone, following the different maturation. The English roses planted at each row start, restore color and fragrance to the fields and indicate the different cultivars. During the months of October, November and December the olives are harvested and guests are invited to participate and to receive the equivalent of the olives they pick in oil, crushed in Tuscus: the family olive mill in the nearby village of Vetralla. The villa is situated within walking distance of a prestigious golfing area with two golf courses (18 holes) of great quality and international fame: The Golf Club Le Querce, home of the Italian Golf Federation that borders the property and can be reached on foot; a paradise for golfers and for all those who love the great outdoors!
