Casa Quajja is a splendidly spacious, light and well-positioned 299 4 bedroom/2 bathroom home featuring a gated entrance, attractive marble floors throughout and a patio and balconies with lovely rural views across the valley to the mountains. The ground floor has three entrances - one back door into the kitchen, and two main entrances, each with covered porches. This (ground) floor has three large rooms, two looking over the garden and one over the stream and the countryside beyond. There is also a bathroom on this level. One of the rooms, which opens directly into the garden, has a fireplace, and is currently laid out as a kitchen. A wide marble-covered staircase leads to the first floor, where there are another three large rooms, a small second kitchen and another bathroom. Two of these rooms have large balconies, and there is a third balcony accessed directly from the hall. A separate 50 building houses a 'cantina' room for storage and wine-making, a garage and a summer kitchen with fireplace and bread oven. There is a large patio at the front of this house ideal for al fresco dining, with lawn to either side and a large rear garden. Because plumbing has been provided at a number of different places in the building, there are a variety of potential layouts: The kitchen could be in the large room on the ground floor, opening into the garden, or it could be on the upper floor, perhaps with an arch directly through into a first floor sitting room. If the kitchen is on the ground floor, the upstairs kitchen (which is directly above the ground floor bathroom) could become another bathroom, providing two bathrooms on the upper floor. This home is set in a very quiet countryside location that is still within walking distance of the hamlet of Carnello with its shops, restaurants, services, bars and cafés. Less than 10 minutes drive reaches the medieval hilltop town of Arpino or arrives into Isola del Liri, a historic town centred on an island formed by the confluence of two rivers, one of which cascades as a splendid waterfall beside the main town bridge. The centre of Rome is less than 90 minutes away as are Rome's international airports. Energy classification: G


ARPINO AND THE CIOCIARIA Arpino and Isola del Liri are among the major medieval towns in the area of Italy called the Ciociaria, the name given to the fertile land that lies south of Rome but north of Naples, situated inland in the hills in the heart of Italy. The hamlet of Carnello lies between the hilltop town of Arpino and the riverside island town of Isola del Liri. For the inhabitants of the surrounding countryside, Carnello provides an old post-house hotel with an award-winning restaurant, family restaurants, bars and cafés, shops and services, and is a hub for public transport by bus and coach to neighbouring towns and indeed into Rome. The Ciociaria region is within easy reach of both Rome and Naples and their respective airports. A day's shopping in Rome is a common pastime, while an even shorter drive brings you to the charming beaches south of Rome. Alternatively, drive east, and the mountains of the Abruzzo National Park await with horse trekking in the magnificent beech forests, and sparkling mountain lakes and rivers where you can swim in the heat of the summer. And at the other extreme of temperature, although Arpino itself is temperate, less than an hour's drive brings you to the winter ski slopes. Often overlooked, both by tourists and by those foreigners in search of an Italian home, in favour of the more publicized regions of Tuscany and Umbria, the Ciociaria remains largely an unspoilt gem with beautiful scenery and medieval hilltop towns. A home or second home in the Ciociaria, in the hilltop towns of Arpino, Veroli, Alatri or in the rolling countryside including Carnello that surrounds them, will afford you a setting where over two thousand years of history combine with an idyllic rural Italian lifestyle, where you can still discover the 'real' Italy and take time out from the busy crowds of the larger tourist cities, while being less than ninety minutes journey from central Rome or either of Rome's two airports.
