Castel Cellesi is also a food and wine lover's paradise........First of all you must make sure you have a bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (produced in the village...excellent!) on the table which you will use in preparing BRUSCHETTE (toasted bread garnished in a variety of ways) of a thousand different colours and flavours. ACQUACOTTA is the name of the typical local soup prepared with chicory, potatoes, tomatoes, oninons, hot pepper, dry bread and olive oil. Favourite PASTA dishes include Maccheroni, Lombrichelli (made with only flour and water), potato Gnocchi, Fettuccine, Pappardelle or Polenta. These may be served with a classic ragout (meat sauce), or with a variety of other sauces prepared with Wild Boar, Mushrooms, Pork sausages or simple Pomarola (tomato sauce) , or in Summer with fresh garden vegetables such as: zucchini, eggplant, turnip greens, sweet peppers and others.
For the main course, choose from among many delicious meat dishes: rabbit alla cacciatora, stewed chicken with tomatoes, chicken or rabbit Viterbese style, wildboar with tomato sauce (very popular), roasted pork, porchetta etc.....and don't forget to taste the famous wines produced in the area such as the RED Est! Est! Est! , the WHITE Orvieto or the Dessert Wine Aleatico.

Additional notes from the owner
Since in this particular area Gas for heating house is extremely expensive, I need to charge customers for what they actually use. There is a host on the spot to read the number of cubic meters on arrival and on departure. Customers pay exactly for wat they use (E. 4 per c.s.m.). As an alternative I have to charge customers E. 40,00 (flat) per day .
Additional fees may apply:
- Gas Heating 1/10-15/4 | 40 EUR per day
