Villa Concetta is located 60 kilometres from Rome, on the slopes of the Cimini Hills, next to the Lake Vico Nature Reserve, halfway between Caprarola and Ronciglione, among woods of chestnuts and oaks, surrounded by hazel groves, in a great natural setting, close to historical town centres rich in traditions, culture and art. The villa, of contemporary design, has pink plaster, red terracotta floors and roofs and white window frames that stand out against the dark grey of the paved forecourt, the green of the lawn and the blue of the pool providing energy and propensity to spend time outdoors. The interior is done in pastel colours, with the chestnut-wood furniture dominating on the ground floor, giving a sense of warmth and welcome. A few kilometres from the villa you can visit Etruscan necropolises, Roman ruins, medieval castles, lakes and nature trails, Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola, the regional park of Sutri with its amphitheatre, intriguing Civita di Bagnoregio (UNESCO world heritage site), the castle of Bracciano, Palazzo Orsini in Soriano nel Cimino and many other important historical and cultural sites.
