KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Situated close to the border of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio, Castello di Proceno is a marvellous 12th century fortress with pentagonal base incorporating a main tower and two secondary towers interconnected by walkways and a drawbridge. The structure includes a guard-house complete with original flagstones and where the apartments Estate, Autunno and Primavera are located and a medieval courtyard around which the apartments Chiostrino, Corsetto, Loggia and Bicocca are found.
In total there are seven apartments and three suites with the courtyard apartments and suites being connected to the gardens and swimming pool by an ancient tunnel that runs under the castle. Access to the suites, Collinella, Poggiolo and Caciaia is from the courtyard.
Proceno itself has good facilities including an excellent restaurant, cafe/bar, bank, news agents, wine shop, bakers, butchers and grocers. Nearby is the Lake of Bolsena, providing beaches for lazing or picnics, a wide range of water sports, boat trips and spectacular drives around it. To the south is Viterbo, with its papal palace from the middle ages, and the Tarquinian necropolis. To the west Sorano and Pitigliano, of medieval importance and interest, are picturesquely striking up on their hills. Orvieto, to the east, as well as being the site of one of Italy's most artistically attractive cathedrals, has a train station with a good service to both Florence and Rome.
