Main Features

Description

Casale La Contessina is a beautiful old restored farmhouse with a swimming pool and habitable dependance for sale in the medieval hilltop town of Vicalvi, nestled just below the ancient castle.. 

Located in the green hills of Ciociaria and set among olive groves, this old farmhouse was built many decades ago, then renovated with a secondary smaller building - a ‘dependance' for holiday home use and a swimming pool.  Renovated in 2000 in a Provencal style, adopting the "Art de la recupere" technique, the farmhouse has three levels totalling 221 square meters and is configured as follows: 

the GROUND FLOOR is used as a living area with a kitchen equipped with a wall fireplace and ancient wood-burning oven with refractory bricks while the hob is covered with ancient terracotta and Vietri ceramics;  it is possible to access directly from the kitchen both the outdoor area of ​​the garden on one side, and on the other side, the beautiful and elegant lounge on the veranda. The veranda is fitted with double shatterproof thermal glass with folding doors, and the flooring is all in antique terracotta; from the veranda it is possible to enter into the study, into the living room, and into a ground floor bathroom with shower. This level also includes a laundry room. 

The UPPER FLOORS are the night zone and consist of a first level with a double bedroom, a single bedroom and a finely finished bathroom with tub / shower. On the second level of the night floor there are two beds in the attic and an additional bathroom. 

The external area of ​​the property benefits from a dependance currently used as "La Contessina holiday home", properly authorized and in active use, configured over two levels for a total of 40 square meters.  It is well finished and is laid out with a ground floor living area with kitchenette and a bathroom, and a mezzanine floor with a double bedroom and bathroom. 

Secluded within the grounds of the casale, the swimming pool is 20 meters long and 4 meters wide, a depth of up to 2.80 meters with a diving board; the edge of the pool has been finished with Trani stone; the pool area features a changing room with outdoor shower.

VICALVI, ALVITO AND THE CIOCIARIA

Vicalvi and its neighbouring town,Alvito, are among the many enchanting medieval towns in the area of Italy called the Ciociaria, the name given to the fertile land that lies south of Rome but north of Naples, situated inland in the hills in the heart of Italy. The Ciociaria region is within easy reach of both Rome and Naples and their respective airports. A day's shopping in Rome is a common pastime, while an even shorter drive brings you to the charming beaches south of Rome. Alternatively, drive east, and the mountains of the Abruzzo National Park await with horse trekking in the magnificent beech forests, and sparkling mountain lakes and rivers where you can swim in the heat of the summer. And at the other extreme of temperature, although Vicalvi itself is temperate, less than an hour's drive brings you to the winter ski slopes.

Often overlooked, both by tourists and by those foreigners in search of an Italian home, in favour of the more publicized regions of Tuscany and Umbria, the Ciociaria remains largely an unspoilt gem with beautiful scenery and medieval hilltop towns. A home or second home in the Ciociaria, in the hilltop towns of Alvito, Arpino, Veroli, Alatri or in the rolling countryside that surrounds them, will afford you a setting where over two thousand years of history combine with an idyllic rural Italian lifestyle, where you can still discover the 'real' Italy and take time out from the busy crowds of the larger tourist cities, while being only 90 to 120 minutes minutes journey from central Rome or either of Rome's two airports.
