Cottage in Lazio for rent - This attractive stone cottage with stunning panoramic views is located near the village of Selci in the picturesque, unspoilt region of Lazio. This is an ideal property for a relaxing break, and convenient for day trips to the city of Rome as well as further afield for exploring southern Tuscany and Umbria.
The villa offers two floors of accommodation connected by external steps only. With both double bedrooms having ensuite It retains a wealth of charm with wooden beamed ceilings and terracotta floors, and is furnished in a comfortable, traditional Italian style. Outdoors there are many shaded seating areas for just relaxing, as well as a wonderful vine-covered terrace for outdoor dining.
The nearby village of Selci offers good local amenities whilst the eternal city of Rome is about an hour away; if you want to visit Rome but don't fancy driving and parking in the city, why not take the train from nearby Gavignano or Stimigliano stations, right into the heart of the capital? These local stations are about 15 minutes away and train times are available locally. The beautiful but little-known area of Tuscia, around the splendid town of Viterbo is just one hour's drive through a patchwork of the finest Italian landscape with fortified hilltop villages, wild ravines, Medieval monasteries and age-old pilgrimage routes - well worth the drive.
This is a lovely villa for a holiday. You can relax in the mature gardens, maybe under the shady pergola, and enjoy fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. The pool is refreshing in the heat of the summer, and there is also a Jacuzzi. We are often asked for villas which are close to a village, and Casa Alessia is exactly that: local amenities including grocery shops, bars, a bank, a pharmacy, a post office and a hairdresser are just one mile away in Selci. About ten minutes' drive away in the village of Cantalupo is the most wonderful bakery, as well as larger supermarkets. From early spring to late summer many historic villages in this region hold festivals and sagre (gastronomic events), as well as stunning firework displays. Locally there are riding schools, golf courses, walking and trekking (with a local guide if required) and climbing. For day trips further afield you can park the car at the station in Gavignano (just 10 minutes' away), take the train into Rome (departures every hour) and explore the wonders of Italy's capital city.
