The kitchen in the old stone house, as featured in the photographs, is enhanced by the antique wood beams and an open log-burning fireplace.
Fine views of the rolling countryside can be enjoyed from the large first floor terrace.
The grounds include a large garden shed and a fenced chicken run. A 90 sq.mt. stone rudere (an old ruined house) on the land offers the option for a charming restoration to create, for example, a guest cottage.
Casa Campo del Fico is ideally located a few minutes from the small town of Santopadre, a very pretty little walled medieval hilltop town, just over an hour and a half's drive from Rome. It has shops and services covering most daily needs and also a weekly market. There are many little country restaurants in the area. It is around 10 minutes drive from the larger historic hilltop town of Arpino.

SANTOPADRE, ARPINO AND THE CIOCIARIA
Santopadre is an attractive little town, large enough to have all shops and services, but small enough to be easily walkable and very friendly. It is only a few minutes drive from Arpino, and only about 20 minutes from major regional centres such as Sora and Roccasecca.
Arpino is one of the major medieval hilltop 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 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 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.
