What you will love about this home

Very comfortable townhouse located right in the historical part of the village of Proceno. With a 30 min drive you can reach great locations such as Montepulciano, Pitigliano and Orvieto.

What you will love in the neighborhood

My guest Pierre's review: We loved the village, the people and the the location is very good. There are many things to do and we had a very good time swimming at Bolsena Lake and at Bagni di San Filippo Spa, but also great visits to Orvieto, Pienza and Montepulciano. My kids really enjoyed the public swimming pool of Proceno, and all the games of the TV console. Great pedestrian walks along the valleys near Sorano and Pitigliano, through the ancient Etruscan Rock Necropolis.

Nancy's review: Besides the comforts of home, I was impressed by the atmosphere of the town and surrounding area. While I was there (from August 1st to the 15th), there were various local initiatives, among which the Garlic Festival where I found out that garlic isn’t just garlic, and a “sagra della bruschetta”, where I learned the true art of making bruschetta, clearly improved by using local olive oil. There was also a week when the local vineyards were open for wine tasting. I soon discovered that most of the towns throughout the area had festivals (religious as well as food and wine tasting). It turned out to be much more than I had expected when booking the townhouse. Each day I was able to explore the towns and places I had heard about (Val D'Orcia and Orvieto) and discover others like Acquapendente, Sorano, Pitigliano, Lake Bolsena to mention just a few. This region of Italy is truly lovely.

Since I run a cycling/hiking tour company, guests can request bike rental and guided tours, starting from Proceno.
