The agriturismo

The agritourism is a historical dwelling with an ancient farming village that for some years now has been renovated into a charming farmhouse located in one of the municipalities of Lake Bolsena, in the territory of Grotte di Castro. The estate is situated between Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria in the middle of unspoilt countryside in one of the least inhabited areas of Italy, halfway between Rome and Siena, just 9 km from Lake Bolsena, the largest volcanic lake in Europe and 35 km from Orvieto. A region with a still intact nature and an ideal territory for magical excursions among castles, ancient Renaissance palaces, charming villages perched on impervious cliffs and Etruscan necropolis lost in the countryside.

The accommodation

Located in the Southern Tuscany, one hour and half from Rome, half way between Orvieto and Siena, closely bordering with the regions of Umbria and Tuscany, the breathtakingly splendid 17th century castle, (complete with fairytale turret) has been the property of the noble Caterini family for generations. Over the past ten years, the castle’s 18th Century ivy-covered farmhouse and out-buildings have been carefully restored to retain their authenticity. Now they offer fantastic accommodation, B&B or half board, in 8 self-catering cottages and 14 private bedrooms. Rooms furnished with original pieces offer you the chance to enjoy a unique holiday in Italy. A perfect location if you are looking at a true countryside holiday in the south of Tuscany where you can explore the various neighbouring historic towns such as Orvieto, Sorano, Pitigliano and Bolsena. We offer traditional Italian cuisine for fantastic cooking courses and meals in our home style restaurant. The castle is also an ideal place for an horse riding or cycling holiday. During exciting trail excursions, we travel as far as Proceno castle, Lake Bolsena and to the beautiful natural reserve of Selva Del Lamone. Furthermore, at the end of a sporty day, an ayurvedic masseuse will be ready to relax you with an appropriate massage at our new wellness centre. The castle can also provide a beautiful setting for a unique wedding in the castle grounds.

Activities and surrounding

There are many activities to do on site, such as going to the Sorano Spa and Spa (18 km), while it is possible to organize on request nature excursions on foot, rent a boat (Lake Bolsena) and golf at the Golf Club of Acquapendente (14 km). Moreover the castle is a perfect location for weddings, events and meetings out of the box.
