A leap into the classic and historical taste of a charming structure in the heart of Arpino, composed of several levels, respectively: first floor and basement with charming cellar floor, inside a stately palace. Simultaneously connect to the ground floor where a romantic garden leads into a rustic-style depandance. The entrance from the door of the building leads into a beautiful corridor with floral space from which you can access the cellars of the property.
Continuing down the stairs instead you enter the main apartment. Ancient materials, from floors to furniture will accompany you from the huge dining room to the kitchen, crossing a skylight that totally makes the area illuminated. The bedrooms on the same level are very comfortable: one closer to the entrance, designed as a guest room; others at the most exposed point of the building near the bathrooms. The very traditional kitchen has beautiful marble and wood elements, such as the central coffee table where the family once met and even more characteristic the connection with the balconies the stone staircase that leads into an introspective and singular garden. This fantastic area is ideal for relaxing, surrounded by greenery and protected by the stone of the surrounding walls, or use it as a recreational spot or simply for a dinner or breakfast outdoors. In addition, this area is also connected with the road through a cobblestone and a discreet and pretty gate.
From the habitable structure from the start, to the possible modernization of the cellars, huge spaces where time merges with the introspective charm of what was once a real wine production laboratory. From the walls to the accessories that make up these rooms carved into the rock, you will have the opportunity to create a completely personal basement, a modern cellar, a tavern or tasting event room, but above all an integral part of your home.
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.
