Additional Location Information

San Francesco sits on top of a hill and is surrounded by several acres of farmland. There we grow organic corn, beans, grain and olives, make pure extra-virgin olive oil and also breed horses, donkeys and Maremmana cattle. Within the boundaries of the property the remains of an Etruscan village – Acquarossa, 5th century B.C. – are interspersed with some Etruscan tumbs and grottoes and can be seen as they were excavated by King Gustav Adolf of Sweden back in the 60’s and 70’s.

The area is rural with quite a few villages that, as well as Viterbo, can be reached in minutes - a car is necessary. The nearest restaurant is about 1 km., whereas stores, shops, supermarkets etc. can be found within 3-4 kms..

A dramatic view over the valley with several streams surrounding the entire property and the Roman city of Ferento with the Cimini mountains in the background complete San Francesco's gorgeous landscape -- most likely the best one you have enjoyed in your life. Obviously this is Tuscia!
