About the Homestay
Our home is in a quaint hill village in Lazio, Italy, about an hour north of Rome by car or train. The guest side of our apartment is a 2 room suite with private bath and complete kitchen. The apartment was recently renovated to expose the original 18th century stone walls and architectural features. Furnishings are primarily Italian antiques rescued from here and there. There is a lovely terrace above the apartment with a 360 degree view of the historic center and the valleys below. Sunsets are lovely. Use of our garden in the valley is also encouraged. There you will fine cool shade or warm sun as you wish. Help yourself to tomatoes from the vine or fruit from the many trees. In Bomarzo, the wine is good, food is fresh, abundant, delicious and the people are openly friendly. The famous and unique Renaissance garden of Vicino Orsini, Parc dei Mostri, is a 10 minute walk from our door. Come experience the real Italy as our guest!
