Where do you want to go?
What do you get when you cross a classic 19th century Italian residence with spicy, exotic textures and Arabian nights? You get Villa Casbah! Recently refurbished, this large home is awash with vibrant, intense colors and speckled with Indian, Moroccan and Chinese furnishings and punctuated with Italian antiques. The residence is surrounded by a beautiful, large hydrangea garden and stately ancient oak tress. The lovely circular pool is encompassed by a Gaudi-inspired 18th century mosaic border and sits quietly at the edge of the garden. Outside is a rustic pergola of grapevines, providing the generous dining table with shady canopy for al fresco dining by the fountain. Should you ever wish to venture from this fascinating, yet soothing oasis, the village and cafes of Ronciglione are only a five minute walk away.
Entering into Villa Casbah one is immediately struck by its dramatic, yet playful tone. The bright, vivid colors of the living/drawing room suggests a sheik's harem, but is tempered by the grand, 15th century fireplace once belonging to a Farnese palace. Spacious, yet cozy enough to enjoy a good book or lively conversation. The recently remodeled kitchen is large and well equipped; all the necessities for conjuring up a grand meal, or a simple peasant dinner, are available, including a stove, oven, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher. Also on the ground floor are a double bedroom and a bathroom. The first floor boasts a large, master double bedroom with a fireplace and a master bathroom, two twin bedrooms, a double bedroom, a bathroom, a sauna and an ironing room. On the second floor is a connecting double bedroom and a twin bedroom. A bathroom is shared by both.
Villa Casbah is part of a large country estate owned by an Italian family whose pride in ownership is abundant. The well-maintained grounds offer centuries old chestnut groves, historic gardens, pine-scented woods, exotic Mediterranean flora, beautiful and serene waterfall fountains, a grotto, and even a columned Nympheum. Offering miles of trekking paths in its Etruscan ravines and canyons is the nearby Lago di Vico (Lake Vico), a volcanic lake named after the local dominant Vico family of ancient times. Additional activities in the vicinity include sailing, horseback riding, biking, rafting and exploring the nearby Etruscan, Roman and Renaissance archaeological sites.
