"Beautiful property in pretty Medieval village in the heart of the old town, with pedestrian area. Wooden beam roof, fireplace, a stunning view make it ideal for relax.

The house is a short walk from the main square which is the heart of the local community. People meet to enjoy a coffee or an aperitivo at one of the tables in the village bar, relax on a bench in the sun, or simply watch the world go by. It is a pedestrian area, so safe for the many children that come to play here or enjoy a gelato after school. There are several shops and services just outside the entrance to the historic centre including baker, butcher, doctor, pizzeria and restaurant, all within easy walking distance.

The main body of the house dates back to the 1300s. The apartment has been tastefully restored recently and is in a quiet lane.

It has a private entrance from the lane and overlooks the beautiful Valley Siriaca which is part of a vast regional park with rich flora and fauna, natural springs and Etruscan tombs .

The first floor is made up of a spacious living room with a fireplace and kitchen. The wooden staircase takes you to the 2nd floor where there is a bedroom with a large closet built in to the wall. The bathroom has a shower.

As it is an independent apartment, there are no additional costs for heating nor condominium fee.

The railway station is a 10-minute walk up the hill on to the Via Flaminia. Buses and trains leave from the station and take you directly to Piazza del Popolo in Rome's city centre or Saxa Rubra bus station. Castelnuovo di Porto also has a highway exit, on the Austostrada A1, that takes you to Rome's Ring road in 10 minutes.

Castelnuovo di Porto is a charming medieval hill town situated 25 km North East of Rome and is one of the few unspoiled historical centres close to the capital. The village grew up around an imposing medieval castle called Rocca Colonna. During the course of history Rocca Colonna was contested by several noble and even papal families and eventually became the property of the Colonna family, giving the castle its name."
