Make a holiday villa in Capranica your home away from home

With a range of villas and apartments in Capranica, HomeAway can help you pick the holiday rental that matches your taste and plans. Capranica is a charming town in Lazio’s Viterbo Province, tucked between two lakes and surrounded by handsome rural scenery. Capranica apartments are in traditional buildings, made of stone and dating back centuries, but with all the facilities a modern holidaymaker could need. History needn’t preclude luxury, as many Capranica villas come with private pools and an array of other opulent comforts.

Things to do

-Local history. Capranica is on an old pilgrimage trail that linked northern Italy with Rome. There’s a number of medieval and renaissance churches in the town, and the most important is the 12th Century Church of the Madonna del Piano, which has a beautiful fresco by 14th Century painter Andrea Vanni. Viterbo, north of Lake Vico, is still enclosed by its medieval walls and has a magnificent cathedral from the 1100s.

-Nature. Capranica is a landscape of farmland, ancient oak forest and lakes. In the summer you can make the short trip to the shores of Lake Vico for freshwater beaches in an unspoiled natural setting. It’s also a lovely spot for hikes and bike rides via a choice of marked trails that snake over hills and through woodland. To the south is Lake Bracciano, a body of water known for its purity – motorboats are banned here, making it perfect for canoeing and swimming.

-Tarquinia. On the Tyrrhenian coast is this town, which is a UNESCO site thanks to its wealth of Etruscan heritage, dating back almost 2,500 years. The Etruscan necropolis comprises 6,000 tombs, a portion of which have been intricately decorated with wall-paintings. There are also the ruins of a temple from the 4th Century BC, and an archeological museum, housed in a renaissance palace and displaying finds from the area.

-Food and drink. A rustic dish loved throughout Lazio is acquacotta, a thick vegetable soup served with dried bread. Around the lakes in the Viterbo district freshwater fish is a staple – sbroscia is a soup made with lake fish and mint. Pasta is also popular, with varieties like stracchia and lombricelli served with mushroom and wild-boar sauces.

-Rome. Rome is less than an hour from the town of Capranica, and is an absolute must. Many centuries of history can be discovered, at world-famous landmarks, like the Coliseum, the biggest amphitheatre in the Roman world. There are countless other historical sites to track down, including the spectacular Pantheon, a large domed temple from the 2nd Century.

Spring and autumn tends to be a mix, with some warm days, but generally highs hover around the mid teens in April and November.

Travel to Capranica

If you’re travelling to a villa in Capranica from abroad then you can use Rome-Fiumicino (FCO), which is 80 kilometres from the town. The car trip takes under an hour via the SS2 and A90 roads.

Capernica also has a train station, and, with hourly trains on weekdays, it’s simple to reach the town with this means of transport from Rome.

Lovely and friendly owner and really helpful guide when we arrived and during our stay. Thank you both. A beautiful home with a stunning view. Great pool and lots of really well thought out spaces to enjoy and make the most of the weather and view. Really restful.

A car is a 'must have' item staying here, which is no bad thing. We arrived really needing a week's rest, and that's exactly what we got. The property is immaculately kept and well equipped, the beds are comfortable, all the windows have fly screens to keep out the mozzies and the open plan living room area has air conditioning, which was very welcome. The kitchen is equipped with a gas hob, electric oven, and microwave, fridge, kettle, etc. There's a tv in each room with a few English speaking films to be found here and there on it. Our son brought along his Playstation, which plugged into the one in his bedroom and the wifi was good enough for him to play online. Outside the gardens are very nicely kept. I don't think I've ever seen such a variety and number of butterflies in my life. We even saw a few praying mantis hanging around, and every so often we would see a little lizard break cover and scurry across the ground. Birds flit around from bush to bush. The pool is great. It's unheated, but surprisingly not freezing cold, and about 5ft deep throughout. It's also very well maintained, and doesn't smell of chlorine at all. There's shade from the trees over parts of the pool if you want to stay out of the sun. The owners are friendly and helpful, with that personal touch, like leaving a few kitchen essentials for the guests, so that you don't starve or go thirsty when you first arrive, which was much appreciated, as was the basket of home grown vegetables they gave us part way through the week. Very tasty. Personally, when I go to Italy I want to live like the Italians do, and I wasn't disappointed here. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place to anybody who needs a place to rest and relax.
