Villa Collebianco is a large and splendid stone farmhouse on two levels located in 34,670 square meters. of land with wide panoramic views. The property is located in the countryside on the outskirts of Arpino, a historic medieval hilltop town, inhabited continuously for over 2,600 years since the pre-Roman era.
This unusually grand house combines the occasion of a countryside with a very convenient location: two excellent restaurants are within walking distance and the property is a couple of minutes drive from the center.
The upper floor of this house has a large and bright sitting room, with a balcony overlooking the magnificent view. Another room, perhaps a second sitting room or study, is on the left, also overlooking the garden and the view. Behind this is a bedroom with a private bathroom. On this floor, there are also two other bedrooms on the right and another bathroom.
The ground floor has a spacious kitchen with a large oven for the tile. There is a large central space, which opens onto the tree-lined outdoor patio. There is a guest bathroom, some storage space and another very large room, which could be a downstairs bedroom camera (with the storage space becoming a private bathroom) or more space. of life. There is the storage area on this level, accessible from the outside.
Next to the house there is an old stone structure, which once wanted to house animals. This property is located on the deeds of the cadastral title and could perhaps be restored in a guest cottage, in a summer kitchen or in changing rooms.
The ground sweeps down the hill from the house into large dramatic terraces. There are vines, olive trees and an old 'threshing floor' or medieval threshing circle, originally shared by local farmers to thresh their grain. Currently much of the land is rented to the nearby award-winning restaurant "agriturismo", then the olives are grown and sheep and horses graze through the olive groves. This agreement can be resolved if you want to grow on your own or continue to enjoy the peaceful environment without having to keep the land (a particularly useful agreement if you want to be a holiday home).

ARPINO AND THE CIOCIARIA
Arpino is one of the main medieval cities on top of the hill area in the area of Italy called Ciociaria, the name given to the fertile land south of Rome but north of Naples, located inland in the hills in the heart of Italy.
The Ciociaria region is easily accessible from both Rome and Naples and their respective airports. A day of shopping in Rome is a common pastime, while an even shorter trip takes you to the beautiful beaches south of Rome. Alternatively, drive east and the mountains of the Abruzzo National Park await you with horseback riding in the magnificent beech forests and sparkling mountain lakes and rivers where you can swim in the summer heat. And at the other end of the temperature, although the Arpino itself is temperate, less than an hour's drive takes you to the winter ski slopes.
Often overlooked, both by tourists and foreigners looking for an Italian home, in favour of the more advertised regions of Tuscany and Umbria, Ciociaria remains for the most part an unspoilt jewel with beautiful scenery and medieval hilltop towns. A house or second home in the Ciociaria, in the hilly towns of Arpino, Veroli, Alatri or the gentle countryside surrounding them, will offer you an environment where over two thousand years of history combine with an idyllic Italian rural lifestyle, where you can still discover the "real" Italy and take time off from the crowds of the larger tourist cities, while being less than ninety minutes away from the centre of Rome or one of Rome's two airports.
