The house is suitable for guests with reduced mobility.


A special feature of the house is a 10 meter (30 foot) long outside portico with stunning views of Monte Rufeno and the valley of the Paglia River. The custom stone table which seats twelve is a great place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. A wood-burning fireplace allows for outdoor cooking. There is also a comfortable seating area that is the perfect place for reading a book or sipping a glass of wine. The grounds encompass four acres carved out of several hundred acres of sheep pastures and woods. An old existing pond south of the house was restored to become an open air cistern fed by a deep well for the new irrigation system. By taking advantage of the century old oak trees around it and by creating a new gravel terrace overlooking the Paglia Valley below, the pond is now a restful and shady oasis with hammocks   for relaxing on hot summer days. A newly planted olive grove, with over 60 plants right beneath the pond, restores Podere Patrizio’s former agricultural glory and beauty. Cypress and elm, wild pear and apple trees, wild plum and rose bushes define the driveway from the main road. The pool is built with a double infinity edge to allow for the full enjoyment of the surrounding views. It measures a generous 5 x 13 meters [16 x43 feet] and has a comfortable shallow area for children and non-swimmers. It is flanked by a large stone patio with comfortable sun beds for tanning, reading, or napping. The pool is heated by solar panels, which cannot guarantee warm water in Spring and Autumn, as it all depends on sun presence.

Podere Patrizio sits atop a hill with 360 degree views of the complex landscape formed by a unique geological history, Etruscan settlements, and medieval towns with their rich tapestry of cultivated fields. To the east, the lush woods of the Monte Rufeno Regional Park, composed of a mixture of oak, elm and pine trees, descend to the valley of the Tirolle River below. At the southern end of the park are working farms with olive groves and cultivated fields overlooking the valley of the Paglia River. The view to the southeast expands dramatically across the Paglia Valley and the volcanic plateau beyond where the town of Acquapendente and the crater of Bolsena, the largest volcanic lake in Europe, can be seen. The valley is rich with vineyards, olive groves, and sunflower fields, all beautifully framed by the lush vegetation of the plateau. The town of Proceno sits on a tufa rock directly south of Podere Patrizio, surrounded by fields typical of the Alta Tuscia region. To its west is Monte Civetta overlooking the Paglia Valley and the Roman road known as the Cassia, which is still used today as a main thoroughfare. In addition, the Via Francigena, the medieval pilgrimage route connecting Canterbury to Rome and Jerusalem, passes through the valley. Pilgrims still follow this ancient path. Directly west of the house is a nearby hill which offers more cultivated fields and the view of other restored poderi. This strategic hilltop was the site of an Etruscan settlement. The views to the north are unique: a picture book valley with stone farmhouses and a system of cultivated fields, pastures and oak woods, topped by the medieval town of Trevinano with Monte Cetona beyond. The serenity of this valley takes you back in time and is so soothing to the eyes that you might just want to sit down to take it all in. Once you are at Podere Patrizio, you are close to several charming villages and towns like Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino, Citta della Pieve, Arezzo, Siena etc. First shops one a 10 minutes drive from the house.


It is also about one hour drive from the major cities of Siena and Perugia, both with an airport. Rome and Florence are 1.5 hours drive. In addition, Podere Patrizio can be reached by train from Rome or Florence. The closest stop is Fabro, which is about 20 minutes from the house, but if you want to rent a car there is a Hertz office near the station at Chiusi which is about a half hour drive from the house.


Podere Patrizio is less than two hours north of Rome and about one and a half hours south of Florence by car. From both major cities it is an easy drive on the A1, the main north-south highway.
