Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Castel Giorgio - Santa Maria - Roof Garden

Large swimming pool, sauna, fitness room, parkway, 2 bedrooms, accommodates 6

Placed on Santa Maria, an old cloistral area, is the house Roof Garden one of seven other buildings. All in all 3 apartments are rented in totally separate houses. The apartment Roof Garden is situated on the first floor and has a terrace of 50 m², which can be reached directly from the living room. Another good seat would be in the garden with a barbecue grill and ancient maple trees. This apartment includes rustic wooden beam ceilings and Cotto floors. All rooms are already furnished with a sophisticated style, a combination of classics of the Bauhaus art and antiques from Germany and Italy. The view from up here is always compelling and on a clear day you can see Gran Sasso, a town of a distance of 90 km. The largest room, approximately 35 m², is the lounge/ dining room with a fireplace and cooking facility. From here, you have access to the roof terrace which has a large awning and is surrounded with laurel and rose plants. Ancient trees, gravel walks and sculptures shape the park.

pool, sauna, gymnasium: The long, narrow pool has a changing room, shower (hot and cold) and a bathroom. It is on the slope under the cypress trees belonging to the main house. It is bordered by a wood-planked patio and deck chairs (see photos). A knobby, old fig tree, with delicious fruits for our guests, offers shade. The Klafs sauna has 3 different sauna settings and can be used free of charge with prior arrangement (warm up time is about 1 hour). The furnishings include 3 different showers, Kneipp basin, deck chairs, fitness machines and weights.

Mediterranean and Lago di Bolsena: The Ultima Spiaggia beach has earned its name as the southernmost or 'last' beach in Tuscany. We visit it weekly during the summer. This very well-kept beach is open from the mid-May to mid-September: chair rentals, deck chair rentals, sunshade rentals, showers, restaurants with service or self-serve (you can also be served at your lawn chair), attended and covered parking spots etc. It can be reached in about 1 hour by car from Castel Giorgio. The Lago di Bolsena (Latium) is only 23 km away - all water sports are possible here. (Diameter 13 km, depth 150 m) Thanks to the closeness of the sea (80 km), the lake is not often visited; quiet, empty fields and olive groves border the water. Specialty: the Corregone is a type of trout that tastes deliciously and is prepared delectably in many restaurants. The fish is also useful as it eats insect larvae from the water surface, so that there are hardly any insects.

History: The site of the former monastery of Santa Maria della Concezione (SMC) is on a historic peak: to the east, it overlooks the Valle di Lapone (in the direction of Orvieto); to the south it borders the rocky cliff. The Etruscans had been settled here, witnessed by the ancient tuff stone grottoes facing the sun. In Roman times, the old Cassia Trail ran directly through the site. During the Middle Ages a formidable tower had marked the border with the Church State and old church registers witness the life of the monastery during the time of the Council of Trent. Since secularisation, it has been used mainly for agricultural purposes. The summer residence of Bracci Testi Secca family is also nearby.

The former monastery building of Santa Maria is located near Orvietos, on a knoll, 500 over the sea level. This location provides a balanced climate at any time of the year. That is reason why popes and clergies had made this location to their summer residence. The 360° view reaches out to the Apennines. You can enjoy absolute silence on the hills of Umbria, as well as the untouched nature, without industry which are the best prerequisites for pure relaxation. Still, the highway can be reached in only 20 minutes, and the cultural cities of Siena, Florence and Rome in about 1 hour. The next locations (4km) are Castel Giorgio (founded by pope´s nephew Giorgio) and Castle Viscardo. Here, you will find a bakery, a butcher and an Italian grocery store, as well as a bar. The center and the main cultural attraction is the Etruscan city Orvieto, with dome (15 km). One of the cleanest Italian lakes, Lago di Bolsena, is located beyond the next ridges (20 km). You can reach the sea within 1 hour.

Other Activities: sauna and fitness room in the main building

Golf: Several Golf clubs are in the local area (1 – 2 hours drive).
