Description of the Vignanello vacation villa rental
Torre Avellana is an ancient rural tower transformed into an unusual dwelling that is characteristic, cosy and elegant.
A family-like welcoming, the privacy of such an unspoilt place, the pleasant corners where to relax and the stunning view terrace, make it a perfect shelter for those who seek tranquillity and comfort.
Torre Avellana is an old tower without elevator and the three floors are connected with a spiral staircase.
The rooms are equipped with private bathrooms and have a wide panorama of the valley, the ceilings have chestnut beams and a suggestive wall which is partially dug out from the tufa stone. ‘Persiana’ shutters make rooms chillingly cool in summer. The rooms have an internal access from the Tower with a spiral staircase and an independent entrance coming in from a characteristic pedestrian lane.

Area Info
Vignanello, an etruscan village, rises on the slope of hills that, from the Cimini mountains descend towards the Tiber valley, 16 Km from Viterbo and 75 Km from Rome. The location is ideal from which to take pleasurable excursions. Piazza della Repubblica at the sides of which are the most important buildings of the area: the Collegiata, Ruspoli Castle with its splendid Italian garden, Palazzo Pretorio and the numerous churches are worthwhile visiting.
From the surrounding areas, Viterbo and its famous thermal spas can easily be reached together with Bagnaia, Soriano nel Cimino and the “Faggeta”, Orte, Marta, Bomarzo with its “Monster Park”, Vico and Bolsena lakes… and Rome is only a one-hour car drive away! Furthermore, the fact that it is so close to the motorway, the Tuscany and Umbria regions make it a convenient starting point from which to venture out to places which are further away.
‘La Tuscia’ – north of Rome - Northern Lazio, a.k.a. ‘La Tuscia’, was a major Etruscan stomping ground. The roads and tombs of these high-achieving ancient people litter the countryside here, lying alongside innumerable Roman relics. Highly volcanic in prehistoric times, northern Lazio is lushly fertile and green now, with spectacular displays of wildflowers in the spring. The long-dead volcanoes also spawned a trio of lovely lakes, Bracciano, Vico and Bolsena – each crystal-clear and drinkably clean. These lakes, together with the pretty countryside and pleasant little towns typical of the area, have drawn increasing numbers of visitors over the last decade. The whole area is still completely unspoilt, however, and remains much cheaper than neighbouring Umbria or Tuscany. Pleasant little historical towns abound in la Tuscia; consider Tuscania, Tarquinia, Bolsena, and Bagnoregio. The largest settlement in the area is Viterbo, a dour medieval city with a lively young populace.
If you like spas then one of the best in Europe is only 16 kilometres away, the thermal springs are famous for their healthing properties.
