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.

We had a warm welcome from the owner who had thoughtfully made us a meal and was extremely helpful. The garden and pool are amazing - a great space for the children to run around, they particularly enjoyed spotting lizards! We spent a lot of time in the pool and enjoyed our meals (including BBQs!) outside. Being in a rural area meant that it was peaceful and relaxing. We did a few trips out - going on the train to Rome for the day and we also enjoyed nearby Sutri with it's amphitheatre and ice cream. We would definitely recommend this villa for a holiday.

                                                                                        4 of 5
                                                                                        Prior to staying at the villa we had communication with the owner, who I have to say was always very prompt and helpful. The villa was nice and was clean. However there are a few things to mention that would improve it. It is advertised as having a separate apartment to use with bathroom and kitchenette. This is the case, however the only bed in it was a very small futon which was not made up, so effectively the upstairs was a total wasted space for us. There were essentially 4 spacious rooms with king size beds, the 5th bed was actually in the living area, which was fine for our teenage son but would not have been any good if a couple had been planning on using it. Despite the fact that the villa accommodates 10 people, the outside table where you would wish to have a bbq only accommodates 6 people. The pool area is down a hill from the villa with no pathway to get there...you have to walk on the rough grass down a steep hill which may cause problems for those not so mobile and young children. The lack of air con was not an issue at all, as the location of the villa is quite windy...which was good when relaxing by the pool although some of the family felt that it was quite cold at times. I think the extra charges for the villa are unreasonable eg cleaning and bed linen particularly when you are given instructions on arrival to clean the pool at least twice a week, and you have to take all your rubbish away yourself. The towels and bed linen were not of the highest quality to justify extra payment. Another point to bear in mind, is that the road to the villa is very bad in terms of the surface so we would recommend a 4x4 if you are able to hire one. However all in all we had a lovely week at the villa. We would recommend it to others. The location was excellent. We found some lovely restaurants in nearby Sutri and by Trevignano Romano and Bracciano. The drive to Rome and the airport was easy if you have a good sat nav system.
