The location of this place is beautiful, secluded and quiet with heavenly views over the hills and the ruins of the castle in nearby Celleno. The photos do not do this justice. We were three families, each with one child, and we had an absolute blast.
As is clear from the listing, it is an unusual property, spread over three buildings, with a slightly unorthodox arrangement of beds - and in particular a toilet - and I feel that nine or ten guests is about the maximum I personally would recommend.
The decor is charming and rustic, verging on the shabby side of shabby chic, and could IMO do with a bit of decluttering. We are fairly laid back, and for us the property worked brilliantly: the location, the garden, the small but beautifully situated pool, the covered seating areas outside and best of all: the old wood burning pizza oven attached to the outside of the old house.
The owner Cristina could not have been more helpful, and responded swiftly to all communication, and Vincenzo who keeps an eye on the property is a legend: we asked him how to get the pizza oven going, and he turned up the next day with dough he'd prepared, and all the trays, and taught us how to roll and cook the best pizza we've ever eaten. Unforgettable.
Go to the Bar San Roca in Celleno (a great place to eat also) and ask Andrea for his recommendations for local restaurants. Go late in the afternoon to Civita di Bagnoreggio - stunning. Go to the large supermarket Conad in Viterbo to do a large shop and try not to be too jealous of the amazing variety of local fruit and veg (buy wine glasses while you're at it - the position of the tap and the marble sink in the kitchen resulted in quite a high breakage rate). Go to Bolsena, go to Orvieto (breathtakingly beautiful, try to do the underground city tour which we missed), and take the time to just chill by the pool watching the sun set over the hills.
