Location

Situated two kilometers from the Manziana center and approximately halfway between Rome and Viterbo, the country house is in a hilly, wooded agricultural area. It borders the local National Park of Bracciano, which takes its name from the two volcanic lakes, one vast and one small. Both are ideal for swimming and water sports.

The formerly volcanic landscape surrounding is rich in outstanding Etruscan and Roman archeological sites, thermal waters, rivers, ravines, waterfalls, lakes, and forests. Locations that are particularly famous for their natural beauty are Bracciano lake, Bracciano center and its castle, the waterfalls of Parco della Mola near Oriolo, Manziana wood, Santa Severa beach and its medieval castle, the Etruscan tombs in Cerveteri and Tarquinia.
