Casa Mazzoleni is an ancient stone house nestled in the heart of the historic centre of Veroli, a beautiful medieval hilltop town only 90 minutes from Rome. The house reaches from the cellars to the attics and has a spectacular roof terrace with a panoramic view over the valley to the distant mountains. Additionally there is a lovely walled courtyard garden.
Measuring 142 sq.mt. Casa Mazzoleni is laid out over three main levels; additionally there are 46 sq.mt. of cellars, the roof terrace and the stone-walled courtyard garden. The main entrance to the property is through antique wood double doors opening off a charming cobbled centuries-old alleyway. A romantic stone-arched gate opposite the entrance doors leads into the private garden courtyard surrounded by high stone walls.
The property is being sold for complete restoration. Project plans for the modernisation exist but alternative layouts would also be possible. Some Government tax grants for the restoration work may be available.
Casa Mazzoleni is only minutes walk from shops, restaurants and cafés. It is near public parking which has excellent road access. Both the centre of Rome and Rome's international Fiumicino airport are less than a 90 minute drive; Rome's second airport, Ciampino, is even nearer.

VEROLI - an overview
Veroli predates the Roman Empire, being founded as an Ernici town with city walls built in Cyclopan style. In the historical centre, it is possible to see the ancient Roman walls supporting the large terrace on which the Cathedral of St. Andrea now stands. The Basilica dedicated to St. Maria Salome, Veroli's patron saint, is famous for its Holy Stairwell similar to the ones in Jerusalem and in the Church of St Giovanniin Laterano in Rome.
Veroli is at the heart of the historical area known as the Ciociaria, a geographical bridge between Rome and Naples, fertile with rolling hills and mountains, settled by the Romans, its civilization growing through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance and reaching great prosperity in the 1800s. The beautifully-restored historical centre of Veroli within its city walls is an architectural gem.
