La casa di paglia Horti Amerini

  • Farm house
S.da di Cecanibbio, 44 - 05022 Amelia - Terni - Italy

An ancient stone farmhouse renovated in green building and enlarged with a wooden and straw structure, immersed in the Umbrian countryside. Ideal for resting, working in the natural coolness of the house or starting point for a thousand excursions in the surroundings.

A comfortable, healthy home, naturally cool in summer, ideal for resting or working inside or in the shade of oaks and a starting point for visiting cities and towns such as Rome, Perugia, Todi, Spoleto, Spello, Assisi, Orvieto or to immerse yourself in the nature of the Holy Valley of Rieti, the Marmore Falls, to wander on foot, by bike or on horseback in the mountains or in the gentle hills that surround us.

On the ground floor you will have at your disposal a large kitchen equipped with dishes, stove with four gas burners, fridge with freezer, electric oven, microwave oven, TV and a large table for six people with a marble top. Adjacent to the kitchen, a lounge and a porch with tables and sofas offer space for lunches, dinners, remote work and relaxation.
On the first floor the bedrooms:
a double bedroom with bathroom and a single bed with the possibility of opening a second one; two double bedrooms with a shared bathroom with tub and access to a panoramic terrace; an open room with a double sofa bed.
Lime or raw earth plasters, wooden floors or earth stabilized with natural linseed oil where you can freely walk barefoot ... the result is a comfortable, healthy house, easily warm in winter and naturally cool in summer.
Around you, a three-hectare land full of olive trees, bordered by large oak trees, with small plots of lavender and rosemary and refined by a young garden that begins to thrive. In front of you the gentle cultivated hills of the green Umbrian countryside accompany the gaze to the mountains of Lazio: from Terminillo to the Cimini Mountains, passing through the majestic and solitary Soratte which indicates the location of the Eternal City. After all, Rome is forty minutes away by train, an hour's drive ... so close yet so seemingly far away.

My house is a few tens of meters from the guest house. Spaced and positioned so that you can maintain mutual privacy but close to be available if needed.

The Colli Amerini are Umbria close to Rome. From the farmhouse you can reach most of the typical attractions of Umbria and Tuscia, in the north of Lazio: from the cities of art to the places of local gastronomic excellence, from the natural beauty of the hills, its mountains, the volcanic lakes and thermal springs but, at the same time, you can visit Rome in the day and then rest in the evening enjoying the sunset in the trees with a glass of wine in your hand, again away from traffic and confusion.
A few kilometers from the farmhouse there is the Narni Amelia railway station on the Ancona-Rome line which, a few minutes away, intersects Rome-Florence in Orte.

In Orte, the A1 Rome-Florence motorway exit gives access to the E45, a highway that on the one hand allows you to reach Viterbo in half an hour (from here you can continue to Tarquinia and the sea, crossing the Tuscia with the lakes of Bolsena, Vico and Bracciano and all the Etruscan and medieval towns of Viterbo), on the other leads to Terni, from where to continue or to Rieti and the Holy Valley (with natural beauty such as the Prati di Strocone, the Piediluco lake, the whose waters falling towards Terni form the Marmore Falls, and the Franciscan places such as Greccio, or even higher up to Cascia, Norcia and the Piana di Castelluccio), or towards Foligno (passing through Spoleto, Trevi, the Fonti del Clitunno, Spello, up to Rasiglia), or towards Perugia (passing through Todi, Deruta, and continuing towards Foligno, Assisi, Cannara, Montefalco ...). Too many things to see and too few lines to describe them all ...
