Square Meters ( m² )


Apartment Roman Eagle (1) is one of only two apartments in a palace created centuries ago by an ancient monastery in the heart of the historic center of Arpino, a medieval city on top of a hill. The palace is located on the Via Aquila Romana (translated as the Via dell'Aquila Romana), the medieval road built on the site of the old Roman road that 2000 years ago led from Arpino through the valley to Rome.

Magnificent huge double entrance doors, hand-carved in centuries-old wood, open from the Via Aquila Romana into a lovely courtyard with common garden, which was originally the central courtyard of the monastery, closed by cloisters.

A large double flight of stone stairs ranges from the courtyard to two apartments, one of which is Via Aquila Romana (1)

The apartment's high double entrance doors open to reveal an elegant entrance with a vaulted ceiling that extends for much of the length of the apartment. At first, a lovely and sunny morning room overlooks the courtyard.

The main lounge is extremely large and well proportioned, with a very high antique wooden coffered ceiling. A beautiful wrought-iron chandelier made for this room about 150 years ago can be purchased under a separate contract.

At the moment, there are four other rooms beyond the lounge (currently configured as bedrooms, gym etc.), which originally included another large lounge, and can be arranged by choice -- the adjacent plumbing allows the creation of two or three bedrooms and bathrooms. Currently, all four rooms have ceilings at normal height, but at the top there is still the original ceiling, as in the main lounge.

The kitchen is located in an attractive separate room with arch and fireplace.

This section of the property connects to what is currently configured as a separate apartment, but originally it was all a large apartment.

Here, a cozy sitting room with high vaulted ceilings and stone lintels opens into a small dining room. To the left, a door topped with antique tiles leads to a breakfast corner, from which a high arch leads into the kitchen. A second living room has a beautiful hand-painted door.

The cream and pink bedroom has a particularly old solid wooden door. The other bedroom is a very large master bedroom, with a central arch and a vaulted ceiling - currently used only for storing, it would be a gorgeous master bedroom.

Vaulted ceilings, original stone lintels and old hand-painted tiles are particularly noteworthy features throughout this area of the property, which has its independent entrance located on a quiet side street leading from the Via Aquila Romana

Two separate rooms, originally part of the monastery's ancient cloisters and which open the common courtyard garden, currently provide additional storage space but could be restored to provide additional recreational space.

Despite needing renovations and renovations, the Roman Eagle Apartment (1) will offer a magnificent, elegant and historic abode located in a medieval street, just a minute's walk from the main square of Arpino, thus combining tranquility and immediate access to cafes, bars, shops and services.

Excellent street access with free public parking nearby.

This magnificent 300 sqm property is the combination of two potentially separate but communicating apartments, listed separately as "Apartment Via Aquila (2)" and "Apartment Via Aquila Romana (3)".

Arpino, of Saturnie origin, was a very important fortified city of the Volsci, The Sannites and the Romans. This is evidenced by the imposing cyclo-pecological walls from which opens a door to acute sixth, unique in Europe. In 188 BC he obtained full Roman citizenship; the city expanded the territory, with Caio Mario the Arpinas ager enriched himself with possessions in Gaul. For centuries, since the early Middle Ages, it was the domain of numerous lords before being permanently part, after long disputes with the papacy, of the Kingdom of Naples.
Until the unity of Italy has been thriving for the wool industry. Among the churches are that of St. Michael Archangel (sec. X), which preserves works by the Cavalier d'Arpino, of the Caravaggio School. In the church of St. Mary of Civita (sec. Xl) is guarded the wooden statue of the Assumption (sec. X-XI), particularly
revered by the arpinates. The Monastery of St. Andrew the Apostle, one of the oldest Benedictine cloistered monasteries in the area, houses an ancient oil crucifix, under which a medieval specimen of a painted cross depicting the triumphant Christ on death has been found.

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 commute takes you to the enchanting beaches south of Rome. Alternatively, drive east, and the mountains of Abruzzo National Park await you with horseback trekking in the magnificent beeps, and sparkling lakes and mountain rivers where you can bathe 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 will get to the winter ski slopes.

Ciociaria remains largely a pristine gem with beautiful landscapes and medieval villages atop the hills. A house or second home in Ciociaria, in the hilly towns of Arpino, Veroli, Alatri or in the gentle countryside that surrounds 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 crowded crowds of big tourist cities, despite being less than ninety minutes' drive from the center of Rome or from one of the two airports.
