Lazio - Viterbo - ACQUAPENDENTE


PRIVATE STRUCTURE (lease only). Villa Carmeli is located in the Lazio countryside on the border with Umbria and very close to Tuscany, 22 km from Orvieto. The villa is a three-storey stone farmhouse with heavy walls softened by the light blue finishes of the fixtures that bestow a Provençal contamination on the typical 20th century Italian farmhouse. The renovation of the property has respected the original plans and architectural features with round vaults, terracotta floors and exposed chestnut beams. The contemporary taste of the owners has given the house large, warm and welcoming spaces but with a minimalist style that renders them perfectly functional for a holiday with family and friends. The ground floor features the large open-plan area with kitchen, dining room, living area and TV room with direct exits out to the pergola and to the pool. Thirty metres from the villa is the annex designed with the same characteristics as the villa, thus ensuring guests the same level of comfort and services as the main building. The annex is also accessible for people with disabilities. Villa Carmeli is perfect for those in search of privacy, relaxation and tranquillity but also for enthusiasts of trekking, horse riding and fishing with various equipped nature trails that flourish in this area. The geographical position allows guests to easily visit the most renowned cities of art and the most beautiful towns of central Italy such as Orvieto, Saturnia, Pitigliano, Bolsena Lake, Todi, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza and, just over an hour away, Siena and Rome. 8 km from the villa is the town of Acquapendente with all necessary shops and services.



VILLA: on three floors connected only by an internal staircase. The entrance on the ground floor opens onto a hallway with a terracotta and brick staircase that connects all the floors and which leads to a room with ping-pong table and to the large open-plan area with fully-eqipped kitchen with worktops, large dining table, fireplace, living area with sofas and the room with Smart TV. This is the heart of the house: a large, brightly-lit room, with high ceilings and attractive lighting and with direct exits out to the garden, to the pergola with barbecue and dining table, and to the steps leading to the pool. The ground floor is completed by a bathroom with shower and a laundry room. The first floor is composed of a double bedroom with one extra single bed and ensuite bathroom with shower, and a twin bedroom with ensuite bathroom with tub.

The unfenced park (10,000 sqm) of Villa Carmeli is situated in a semi-hilly stretch of countryside characterised by oaks, cypresses, walnut and olive trees, lavender, box and mixed lawn (600 sq m). Past the entrance gate, a short dirt road in good condition leads to the parking area in front of the pergola and the swimming pool, consisting of four uncovered parking spaces. The vegetation is typical of this Umbria-Lazio area, characterised by arable land that in summer tinges the surrounding landscape with yellow and ocher, and by species of the undergrowth such as wild asparagus, dog rose, butcher's broom, hawthorn, juniper, holly, bay, strawberry tree and blackthorn. Fruition of the property and its appurtenances is facilitated by gravel paths and stone steps. In compliance with the environment and with current regulations, the property has door-to-door separate waste collection. Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.

Swimming Pool:

The swimming pool is located on a lower terrace with respect to the villa which is about 20 metres away. It is reached down eleven steps in terracotta from the pergola and from the open-plan living area, or across the lawn from the parking area at the end of the drive. Measuring 4 x 10 m with a constant depth of 1.40 m, it is lined in pvc and has chlorine purification, internal lighting and a metal ladder for access to the water. The solarium, in porous terracotta and lawn, is equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas. The pool is open from the last Saturday in April to the first Saturday in October.

Location and distances

Villa Carmeli is located literally (200 metres) on the border between Lazio and Umbria in the municipality of Acquapendente, an area with an agro-pastoral and food and wine vocation. Acquapendente is known as "the Jerusalem of Europe" as it houses the oldest copy in Europe of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem and as "the City of the Pugnaloni", mosaics made of flower petals and leaves. It is located close to the Nature Reserve of Monte Rufeno where your gaze loses itself in the beautiful natural landscape and your mind recharges, lulled by the silence of the sounds of nature: a waterfall of over 60 metres with two natural pools, an ancient Etruscan tunnel dug in the tuff, a spring, an ancient water mill and the Roman bridge over the Subissone stream. The historical itinerary of the famous Via Francigena that leads to Rome also passes through this territory. A few kilometres from Villa Carmeli is Torre Alfina, a medieval borgo among the most beautiful in Italy with its majestic castle, the Flower Museum and the enchanted wood of Sasseto: an enchanting forest defined by National Geographic as "the wood of Snow White”, greatly sought for film sets and photo shoots. 10 minutes from the villa is Lake Bolsena of volcanic origin, the largest in Europe, whose clear waters are perfect for those who love swimming, water sports and fishing, with the characteristic islands, Bisentina and Martana, reachable with mini-cruises and with numerous villages on its banks full of history and traditions. Also: Civita di Bagnoregio the 2500 year-old “dying city", originally built by the Etruscans and now reachable only on foot via a bridge (15 min away), Orvieto, an ancient Etruscan hill town with one of the the most beautiful Gothic masterpieces in all of Europe: the Duomo of Orvieto (20 min away), the medieval quarter of San Pellegrino and the Palazzo dei Papi in Viterbo (30 min away), the Etruscan necropolises and the national museum of Tarquinia (40 min away), Rome (90 min away). And then in Tuscany: Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza and the beautiful Val d’Orcia (35-50 min away); Siena (60 min away); Sorano, Sovana, Pitigliano “the City of Tufo” (25 min away); the famous spa of Saturnia and golf club (50 min away); the spa of San Casciano dei Bagni (20 min away).
