Casa Scaffa is in a strategic location just outside the charming and bustling town of Isola del Liri, on the bank of the Liri River. It is a spacious and well-designed house, with a large detached garage, outbuildings and land.
Casa Scaffa can be conveniently divided into two apartments, each with independent access from the street, but so far it has been used as a single house, with living area upstairs and downstairs to entertain and visit family members.
The upper floor has a very large double room, with a seating area on one side and a formal dining area on the other, in front of the large windows. The kitchen has a family dining area, a fireplace and direct access to a terrace overlooking the ground that goes down to the river. There are three large bedrooms, a good sized bathroom, and another room, currently unused, that would work well as a second bathroom.
The lower floor has the same arrangement. Unlike many modern buildings, the hallways are very wide, given the generous and airy atmosphere of the house.
There are large cellars, carefully designed with a proper airflow to store ham, preserves of fruits and vegetables, and homemade wine in the traditional way.
The house was designed to overlook a large paved courtyard created by the enclosed garage, pizza oven and outbuildings, and was equipped with high-quality double windows at the back. The terrain that runs along the road has a tall and dense ripe hedge, and the ground itself is extensive, which goes down to the river. Casa Sonia therefore manages to have both excellent road access and nearby services, while the house itself and the garden remain quiet, quiet and surrounded by greenery.
Large iron gates from a small blind-bottom side street allow access to the paved courtyard and enclosed garages. There is also a pizza oven here. In addition to this, you could once find the chicken coop (currently not in use), the garden sheds and the garden, and what was once probably a pigs. Finally, there is a large field that descends towards the river. This could be used for a very large garden, for a swimming pool, tennis courts etc.....

ARPINO AND CIOCIARIA
Arpino is one of the largest medieval cities in the Italian hilly area called Ciociaria, the name given to the fertile land that is located south of Rome but north of Naples, located inland, on the hills in the heart of Italy.
The Ciociaria 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 drive will take you to the lovely beaches south of Rome. Alternatively, you can drive east, and the mountains of Abruzzo National Park await you with horseback trekking in the magnificent beeps, and sparkling mountain lakes and rivers where you can swim in the heat of summer. And at the other end of the temperature, even if Arpino himself is temperate, less than an hour's drive takes you to the winter ski slopes.
Often overlooked, by both tourists and foreigners looking for an Italian home, in favor of the more publicized regions of Tuscany and Umbria, the Ciociaria remains largely a pristine gem, with beautiful landscapes and medieval cities atop the hills. A house or a second home in Ciociaria, in the hilly villages of Arpino, Veroli, Alatri or in the sweet countryside that surrounds them, will offer you a scenario 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 crowded crowds of large tourist cities , while you are less than a ninety-minute journey from the centre of Rome or one of Rome's two airports.
