Mr Grey’s email landed in the office yesterday and rang true with many of our team. He wants to take his family on holiday to one of our villas in Italy and wants it to provide a little of something for everyone. He would like to be near Viterbo and Rome for the art and culture but it is also important that the villa has a pool and is safe for children.
It didn’t take long for the team to agree that L’Antico Casale, one of our most charming Italian villas would suit the Grey family perfectly. Ideally located, nestled in the Lazio countryside, the villa is close to Lubriano, Orvieto and Lake Bolsena. Children will love the wooden grounds and the delightful swimming pool, while the adults will appreciate the extensive gardens, the oasis feel of the property and the private secure setting. Combining a rustic Italian feel with an elegant contemporary style, the villa is light and airy with fabulous characterful features.
Lubriano is a gem of a hilltop town and a real hit with family visitors. There is a wonderful selection of restaurants here and many offer tables with views across the Calanchi valley. In true Italian style, children are made to feel very welcome. The walled town of Viterbo offers another fun day out. Here kids can learn about the history of the area at the Etruscan Museum and could even catch a film being made, as this is a prime choice of location because of its stunning backdrop. Close by are the thermal springs of Bullicame where, at the modern spa complex, adults can enjoy a real luxurious treat. Of course the city of Rome, with its Spanish Steps, Vatican, and incredible cathedral is only an hour away and indeed this city will provide fun for all the family.
L’Antico Casale turned out to be the perfect choice for Mr Grey. If you’d like to know more about this or another of our Italian villas, contact us and we will be more than happy to help choose the right property for you from our extensive portfolio.
