About The Experience
For a small family looking for a working farm experience in Italy, look no further than these two apartments. Located near Torre Alfina, in an interesting part of Italy, a family can explore Tuscany, Umbria, and Lazio. Connected internally, these two, one-bedroom apartments make a well-equipped home away from home, complete with fresh garden produce and miles of walking opportunities.
Location Description

Torre Alfina is built around an impressive medieval castle, which belonged to the Monaldeschi and Bourbon del Monte families in turn, until it was purchased by Edoardo Cahen in 1880. The village has excellent views and two wonderful restaurants that are very traditional in style. There are also two small groceries, two cafes, and a gelateria. Traditional festivals are held throughout the year, and something is always in season: flowers, vegetables, grapes, chestnuts, and pinoli (pine nuts). This is also a great central location, convenient to many of Italy's best known destinations-- and some of its best kept secrets! It sits on the northernmost tip of Lazio (in Viterbo), a point that pushes right between Tuscany and Umbria so that all three regions are right at your doorstep. Close to the Monte Rufeno Nature Reserve, there are a vast expanse of forests and nature trails, great for walking or horseback riding. Fifteen kilometers away you will find Lago di Bolsena, Europe's largest volcanic lake. Here you can participate in freshwater fishing, sailing, swimming, and sunbathing. A drive of a half hour to an hour will bring you to the towns of Civita di Bagnoregio, Orvieto, Pitigliano, Sorano, Sovana, and Viterbo, as well as the thermal springs of San Casciano dei Bagni.

Exterior Description
(20,000 m2/215,278 ft 2)

Located on a working farm, this apartment is one of four small apartments within a house on a country estate where there are other rural houses within a 30 m distance. The landlords live in one near the pool, one houses the estate’s restaurant, and there is a farmhouse, Casale Giardino, which may be rented to accommodate larger groups. The farm is surrounded by a vegetable garden, to which the customers have unlimited access, olive and cherry trees. Just outside the enclosure there are spelt and corn fields and large pastures with cows and sheep. At the foot of the stairs to this apartment is reserved outdoor space with a table. Guests can walk in the park of the country village where there are big centuries-old turkey oaks and willow trees, and old stone fountains. The location offers panoramic views of the medieval castle of Torre Alfina, and looks to Monte Amiata, the fortress of Radicofani, and the Val d’Orcia in Tuscany. There is a children’s play park, a ping pong table and an old orangery with a hot tub with hydro-massage for 7 people. In a hidden spot off of the park there is a shared swimming pool (13 x 8 x 1.50m, open from 7:30 am - 9:00 pm, mid-May to mid-September). There is a traditional wood pizza oven and stone barbecue, with private picnic tables in the shadow of a big willow tree. Only a few meters away there is a car park.
