There are balconies on all sides of the house offering spectacular sunsets and endless views of the fields, with all their colorful changes as the seasons progress.
Kids will love playing in the garden which warmly embraces the house. It is relaxing and peaceful with birdlife and abundant fruit trees. From June through to October, help yourselves to the cherries, apricots, plums, grapes, before Rita gets busy making awesome jams! There is a barbeque and a shady thatched gazebo, shared by all, where one can have a sundowner, tea or a meal and enjoy the cool breeze. You will share the property with Margherita, Preziosa and Bellezza: 3 chickens, who like their privacy and roam around in their private little quarters.
Rita will introduce you to her number one bakery, where you’ll be spoilt for choice, with all sorts of lovely bread and pizzas, while Tony won’t resist telling you about the cheese from the place down the road. Source juicy fruit and fresh vegetables in season from the little farm next door and a selection of cold meats from their handsome butcher. Wine is always in abundance. All available from local producers nearby.
Anguillara is one of the great escapes from the hustle and bustle of Rome, less than 30km away and 43km from Fiumicino airport. Nestled on a small promontory on the shores of lake Bracciano with its medieval historical centre: Anguillara is a little treasure with cobbled alleys full of character.
There is a lovely promenade along the lake where one can enjoy a gentle stroll whilst eating Italian ice cream from the many gelaterie. It’s paradise for kids! with all the water activities: swimming, canoeing, stand up paddling, aqua inflatables. Horse riding is available too.
During the summer months, you shouldn’t miss a “sagra”: a village feast celebrating delicious local specialties, music and entertainment including funfairs and fun stalls. A drive around the lake takes to the town of Bracciano, famous for its Odescalchi Castle. On particular days, kings and princesses of days gone await the children, to play together, tell stories and plunge them into the wonderful world of history and imagination. They can experience a unique and once in a lifetime journey through history and legend, meet legendary characters: The King of the Lake, Princess Artemisia and many more with whom to relive the ancient legends of the Lake and Castle. Along the way, visit the Italian Air Force Museum of Vigna di Valle. Children and adults alike will be in awe of its excellent collection showing the history of aviation. Entrance is free. If you can ever be tired of seeing the many Etruscan and Roman ancient sites in the area, then it’s time to relax in The Valle del Treja natural park. A cool forest with the meandering river that cascades into a small waterfall. “This regional park offers the Treja Park Adventure. A new and exciting way to experience nature. Here kids can have some real fun and an unforgettable experience. The park is full of adventure paths constructed with wooden platforms hanging from trees where you need skills such as equilibrium, coordination, and adventure to pass. Another activity that may be of interest is archery. The park has an archery school where one can increase archery skills and where you can later test them through a fun route. After the kids are happily worn out, take them down the hill for a swim in the river. Relax at the Monte Gelato waterfalls and enjoy a delicious picnic to close the day.
Getting here: Anguillara is well serviced with train connections and a good road network. Train (line "FR3", or Rome-Capranica-Viterbo Railroad) connects it with Rome (stations of Roma Ostiense and of Valle Aurelia) in around 40 minutes. Anguillara station is approximately 7.2km from the apartment so a car/taxi is advisable.
