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.

Weather in Capranica

Capranica gets a mild Mediterranean climate, with warm summers and moderate and damp winters. The weather starts to warm up by May, and temperatures climb until July, when you get highs of 30 degrees or more. There’s little rain to be had in the summer months, and the wetter weather only arrives in earnest in late-September. Winters are mild, with daily highs in double figures and about 10 rainy days a month. 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. The airport is one of Europe’s largest and busiest, and has a range of connections to the UK with a choice of airlines. 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 quiet villa, with exceptional views over the lake.

5 of 5
The Villa is excellently positioned over the lake to give commanding views and just a short walk to a private beach with lovely clear water, the swimming pool is a good size. The villa is well equipped with everything you might need and the wood burner in the living room perfect for cooler nights early in the season. The accommodation was very authentic and we felt we had a true taste of Italian life. The housekeeper took very good care of us and was always on hand to answer our questions and pop in if needed. We received a very warm welcome and he was very accommodating with regards to our check in and out times arriving punctually for the later. Communication throughout was exceptional, first from the owner then the housekeeper on site. The area around the villa is very quiet, the local town is around 3Km away but is walkable with a special pavement/cycle track set back from the road for the first 2Km until you get to the outskirts of town. There are a couple of super markets (also other supermarkets in the main towns around the lake) Tip; the cheaper supermarket in Trevignano-Romano is actually under the Carrefour. We visited early in the season so there was not much activity in the town but there were some nice market stalls and several bars/restaurants at various price levels were open and glad of the business. It looks as if it could be a very busy town in the high season.

Fantastic house in beautiful surroundings

5 of 5
We had such a lovely time in our home from home. The house itself was just beautiful, set in a lovely olive tree garden with all the comfort you could wish for. Everything was clean and tidy, the beds very comfortable and all the rooms spacious and it's own view of the garden. Calcata, a must see just 14 km away and Rome a mere 40 min drive. We already decided to come again as we felt so much at home there. To the lovely owner, Brigitte, a big thank you for all your help and making this a wonderful holiday experience, which we will treasure for a long time. Best wishes Bianca and family
