KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Situated down a quiet lane in the countryside between the Tiber River and the Sabine Hills, just an hour northeast of Rome, Villa Formichine affords total privacy yet is not so far removed from civilisation as to be completely isolated.
The charm of this relatively unknown area, with its olive groves and vineyards and its proximity to the medieval and renaissance delights of Italy, makes it a wonderful place for a perfectly relaxing and cultural holiday. Packed with touring options including several beautiful abbeys, the city of Viterbo and the many medieval villages dotted among the hills, in this idyllic location you are also within easy reach of the hill towns of Etruria, Umbria and southern Tuscany Orvieto and Assisi are each only 70km away, while Rome and Viterbo with all the Etruscan sites are within 50km.
Also within easy reach for day trips are Perugia, Arezzo and Siena. The train station, with a frequent service to Rome, is in Stimigliano only 8km away and the small town of Poggio Mirteto, with shops, restaurants and good weekly markets is 6km. There are many excellent traditional, and untouristy, restaurants located in this area and a supermarket is within 5km.
