Civitas di Bagnoregio is a village re-born. Empty a few decades ago it has been rediscovered as a jewel of medieval ingenuity, carved and built out of the tufa outcrop it sits upon. This elegant 15th-century townhouse for 6 to 8 has been carefully re-designed for modern living but shares the delights of the carved tufa caves, which now house an internal pool and Jacuzzi which open out onto a garden overlooking magnificent views from the edge of the village. Living in history but with all creature comforts.
The house is entered from external stairs to the first floor, where you will find a living room with a fireplace, a kitchen diner as well as a double room with an en-suite shower room. Upstairs there is a double bedroom with en-suite shower room, while on the ground floor there is further, large double bedroom with the possibility of 2 extra singles in the large entrance space. A roman cistern now houses a beautiful wine collection with 300 excellent wines available to buy, while the old tufa caves have an internal pool and Jacuzzi in one, and a kitchen to serve the garden space in the other.
The house offers extra services for those who would like them - we can organise a welcome dinner, grocery shopping , or a personal chef, wine tasting tours and other services to make your stay even more of a delight.
Civitas di BagnoRegio is a village alive against the odds, embedded in history and geography and redolent with both - it is a joy to simply relax in this wonderful house and dream of other times, of the lives and hopes that have passed through the same space. Should you wish to explore the area there are delights aplenty.
