STAY IN A GENUINE MEDIEVAL HOUSE

Viterbo House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Our house is in the heart of the Medieval Quarter of Viterbo, one of the most perfectly preserved, walled, medieval cities of Europe.

Although the walls date to the 12th century, the interior of our house has been renovated by an Italian specialist in historical buildings.

The house is three stories, with the typical 'proferlo' or exterior stairway leading to the small balcony with a great view over the city and nearby gardens of Paradosso. The upper story is a mezzanine which can be arranged into a twin or double bedded room and maintains the original medieval beamed ceiling and peperino (a volcanic rock) walls.

The floors are of Italian tiles throughout. The middle floor is the open plan living/sitting/dining area, and is a very bright, pleasant room with a window overlooking a neighbouring garden. This is quite a treat in the usual narrow medieval streets. The bathroom on this floor also has a window overlooking a garden to the back, and with both windows open, there is a lovely breeze on a hot summer day. On the lower floor is the large bedroom and luxury bathroom, both of which are very spacious. This room can also be converted to a twin or double room.

The walls of the house date to at least the year 1100 The area is famous for its spas with healing qualities and was the favored places for the popes to take the waters as in the luxurious 'Terme Dei Pape,' or Baths of the Popes. This is definitely a treat to be experienced at least once. The prices are very reasonable or one can just spend the day in the pool.

Ten minutes outside the city are the wooded hills of Mount Chimini, and Lake Vico. Lake Bolsena is 35 minutes to the North. The Lake is beautiful and perfect for a day trip. There are many interesting hilltop cities on the way, including Montefiascone, whose famous wine, 'Est Est Est', you can taste along the way. You will have a holiday with a difference!

There is a train to Rome every hour which takes about one hour 45 minutes. It is also possible to get the train to Florence or travel to Sienna for the day. The Mediterranean Sea is 30 minutes by car at Tarquinia where there is also a water park. Cities like Orvieto, Assisi, Bagnoreggio, Tivoli, are all possible in a day trip. There are just too many possible day trips to mention here but we have a folder with information, suggestions and maps for your convenience in the house.

The medieval quarter of Viterbo is famous for the antique shops, and craft shops of local artisans located on the famous 'Via San Pellegrino.' Our house is off this street. The local council will only permit these traders to rent in the area. However, around the corner you will find the local delicatessen and a few meters away, by the Fontana Grande, a delicatessen you will never want to leave. Restaurants abound with great variety in menus and all use fresh local ingredients.

The area abounds in Roman and Etruscan archaeological remains and the architecture is unique to the area and time. Garden lovers can visit the Villa Lante and the Tivoli gardens.

Viterbo is the perfect base for day trips to many parts of Italy, including the Adriatic coast, or Norcia in the mountains. You have the best of both worlds, the Peace and Quiet of the Medieval Quarter, and all the benefits of a thriving, modern, university city.

We are always happy to answer any questions our guests may have and strive to make their holiday in our home one they will always remember with a smile.

We are home now and settling back into our routines. Our cruise and Rome were great but our time in Viterbo was definitely the highlight. What a wonderful place. We wished we could have stayed longer as there was so much more to see in the area. The house was charming and suited us well.



As always, you were a great help.



All the best and thanks again.

I am a retired teacher and mother of four. Recently I fulfilled my life's dream and qualified as an archaeologist, specialising in the funerary architecture of the Etruscans of Etruria, which is the area all around Viterbo. I have written two children's books, 'The Roald Dahl Quiz Books' and sometimes teach English as a second or other language, having students come to my home in a 'full immersion' programme. I have travelled widely and even drove my car from Dublin to an area south of Rome twice with four children. We did of course, use the ferry to France! I enjoy travel, reading, singing and craft work such as sewing, knitting, embroidery and lace-making. Singing with the choir of Trinity College Dublin is my usual activity and recently we performed Mozart's 'Requiem' in the Royal Albert Hall, London, and also 'The Lord of the Rings' conducted by the composer, Howard Shore, in the National Concert Hall of Dublin. !) The highest point of my singing career was to sing (strictly as a chorus girl) with Pavarotti when he performed with the Dublin Grand Opera Society. Ancient history and archaeology are my passion and my favourite activity is visiting ancient archaeological sites. Being a mother of four (my husband sadly died when they were all under seven) kept me very busy for many years but they are all grown now and I am once again free to be an intrepid explorer.

Sylvia Bond purchased this house in 2003

A very good friend lives and works in Viterbo and once she invited me to stay at her house during the Summer as she was going to the mountains for a few weeks.During my many visits to Italy, we always had a house-hunting day, even though financially it was out of the question. But one must have a dream and it is better to be prepared. We stayed in our friend's house in Viterbo and never looked back. Each time we went house-hunting, I was always looking for that 'This is it' feeling, but it never came. I asked my friend to keep an eye out and to ask the neighbours if they knew of a property for sale. As usual in Italy, a friend of a friend had a nephew who knew of someone who was selling a house. I went to look, and the moment even one was over the threshold, I was planning where I would put the sofa. It was mine. It fitted me. I loved it and have loved it every moment since. My children tell me that I always sound extra happy when I am in our house in Viterbo. It is true. The house is quite simple, homely, and peaceful. There is a small balcony where I sit and write or read or sew as I look down on the gardens of the Paradosso with a gentle wind blowing down our street. My neighbours couldn't be nicer, I am part of the community, I really have a sense of belonging. Last month, on a quiet Sunday evening, my neighbours called to say they were going for a short visit to lake Bolsena with their baby and invited me to come. We sat on the grass verge, walked along the waters edge, dipped our toes in the water, went for a gelato and enjoyed a calm, quiet evening in the sunshine. What more could you ask for?

The town of Viterbo is a walled medieval city and is completely intact so that you feel that you have stepped back in time. The character of the town is still the same although modern life exists side by side outside the city walls. It is possible to literally feel what life was like in the medieval times, but more than that-although the golden age of Viterbo was when the popes lived there during the thirteenth century, the papal palace is built on the site of an Etruscan acropolis. In Viterbo, you can FEEL history all around, from the earlies period of the Etruscans dating back to 900 B.C., to the Medieval times. So, although the walls of our house date back to the 12th century, the interior is comfortable and modern with all the necessities of the modern age, including the internet. The little balcony is one of my favourite places to sit and just be. The gentle breeze that passes from the upstairs bathroom through the kitchen is also something I love, especially as it is unusual to have a view of gardens and greenery in a medieval street. The spaciousness of the downstairs bedroom and the amazing downstairs bathroom are something I appreciate, and the mezzanine bedroom which has retained the original beams and exposed peperino (volcanic rock) walls shows the house to be of the original medieval period. The house itself has a lovely atmosphere, quiet, peaceful and easy. You will feel that you have really had a holiday.

We stayed here for two weeks with our two young children. The kids were extremely excited about staying in the loft and we were thrilled with the spacious bedroom and beautilful bathroom in the lower level. The amenities are everything you could ask for. The apartment is definitely in walking distance to shopping and eating and we even happened to stay at a time when a festival was going on in the courtyard down the street. We planned several day trips to Rome, Florence, and Pisa and even found a beautiful beach near Ortebella that took our breathe away and had us returning multiple times. The host of the apartment couldn't have been more helpful in helping us prepare and feel comfortable as we made our first trip abroad. She even tried to point out where the closest grocery stores were located. I could not have had the same experience staying in a hotel! This rates an 11 on a 1 to 10 scale!

Lovely living among the Italian people.

  • 5 of 5
My family spent a month at this delightful property. The owner is a DOLL and fun and sweet. (We met her in person a year after we lived there because we were visiting the area again.) The house is on three floors, which gave the four of my family members privacy and space. We love living amongst the people when we travel, as opposed to hotels or B&Bs where everyone else is a guest, too. There's tons of space here and the location is magical! Air conditioning was nice for my two boys who were in the loft space, and it was cool in the lower level master suite. Nice kitchen with a table and a couch. Sweet neighbors. Wifi. One of our better stays in Viterbo! :) (with our without a car it's fine because there are spots just outside the walls to park for free, and close)

Beautiful house in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in this house on 3 occasions now. What has brought me back is that this is one of the few places that I have been to that is absolutely beautiful but not spoilt by crowds of tourists. I love the house too and it is a great alternative to staying in hotel and experiencing this hidden gem like a local. The house is located in the heart of the Medieval walled part of Viterbo but is modern, clean and fully refurbished on the inside. An endless supply of authentic Italian restaurants and amazing little boutiques are within walking distance. The two train stations in Viterbo are within walking distance and I have been on day trips to Florence and Rome (by train). I was delighted to come back here in the evening to a quiet air conditioned house after the noise and throngs of tourists in the city! I would recommend this house for both couples and groups/families.

Fantastic house, wonderful location

I have stayed in this house several times now between 2008 and 2011 and am planning to visit again! The house is beautifully refurbished in the medieval district of Viterbo.

The house has everything you need and has easy access to public transport to Rome and Florence. The owner is very helpful and accomadating, and was able to help us through any difficulties we had. Would recommend visiting this beautiful house to anyone!

Very Dissapointing

  • 1 of 5
While this Flat is absolutely in a beautiful section of Viterbo, this vacation rental nearly ruined our vacation. After a 3 hour flight & a 3 hour train trip on 2 trains to Viterbo….we arrived on Sunday, April 29th only to find the caretaker of the flat had not been informed of our arrival by the owner – They had no idea we were coming. Consequently ,the flat had not been cleaned (there was garbage in the garbage container and old food in the refrigerator from the previous renter) , the dehumidifier had not been turned on (the moldy smell was very apparent in the whole flat but especially strong and damp in the downstairs bedroom) and worst of all,no GAS ( NO HOT water for bathing & NO way to cook). According to the caretaker – the GAS had been turned off by the utility company. We called the owner of the flat and left voice and text messages informing her of the problem – she did not return our calls or text for some time– but when she finally replied – it was only to say she was sorry and she would refund our money. We were left standing in the streets of Viterbo with no place to spend the night….

The weekend we arrived was the May Day holiday weekend – the caretaker informed us it was a very busy holiday week in Italy, and it was highly unlikely we would find a hotel or B&B with rooms available in Viterbo – however, the caretaker of the flat made a number of calls on our behalf, and was very helpful in finding us 2 small rooms for ONE night only in a local B&B. After spending one night in the B&B we had to pack up and move again. We were then advised by the caretaker, that the GAS would not be turned on, in the flat, until Friday, May 5th - (5 days without Hot Water)this was a disaster! We were forced to stay in the flat for 1 uncomfortable night, May 1st, as we tried to locate other accommodations somewhere in Italy for the balance of our vacation. We were finally able to locate a hotel in another town with 2 rooms available for our group of 4. We left Viterbo at 7am on May 2nd.
2 years ago, we rented a condo in Venice and a flat in Florence through VRBO – both rentals were in great locations/clean and well cared for – but this flat was a huge disappointment. This whole experience cost us an additional 675 Euros for hotel accommodations (over and above the original cost of the Viterbo Flat) & 135 Euros in additional travel expenses (over $ 1,000 USD). After a number of Email’s back and forth, the Owner of the flat did give us a full refund.

Owner's Response: I deeply regret that you had such an experience and take responsibility for not having made your arrival date clear to Signora Pepe. That is something that has never happened in nine years. It was not a major problem in itself as the caretaker lives one minute away and the house is always ready for occupation. Unfortunately it was compounded by an error-which can be verified,- on the part of the Post Office through which my utility bills are paid and which led to the gas supply to the house being cut off. It was a bank-holiday weekend and no matter how much I wanted to solve this problem nothing could be done until business opened on Tuesday. Nevertheless the tone of your criticism does not reflect fully the great effort made by my manager, neighbour, caretaker, and myself to rectify the situation.
There was no gas and your distress at this is understandable. While the hob uses gas, the oven is electric. Anna Maria brought a twin gas hob for your use and my neighbour very generously offered the use of her bathroom for showers. The gas was reconnected two hours after you left on the Tuesday morning.
To say you were left standing in the street with nowhere to go, contrasts with your acknowledgement that Signora Pepe found you a B&B for the night, and if all else failed, you could have stayed in the house as you did the following night.
You say that you were subject to extra expense yet you acknowledge that you got a full refund. I also paid your €160 B&B bill. I sent a refund by Paypal within an hour of being made aware of the situation. This can be verified by documents. The deposit followed shortly after.
The complaint that there was old food in the refrigerator is a misreading by you of our practice of leaving a few basics in the cupboard and refrigerator. Many guests enjoy this, particularly as most arrive at the weekend when the shops are closed. The food was in-date.
The house aired daily and does not have moldy smells.
Your statement that the house had not been cleaned has caused untold grief to the ladies who look after the house. They take great pride in their work. It is always thoroughly cleaned immediately after a guest leaves. In response to this complaint they have written a statement which is available if required.
The unfortunate combination of human errors belies our reputation for excellent customer care. However, the efforts of my manager, caretaker and neighbour to salvage the situation, itself, reflects our ethos of customer care.

Perfect location to feel like a local

4 of us stayed in this great little house for 2 weeks. Was in town to visit my daughter attending the university in viterbo. The house Has everything you need and is located on a picturesque cobble stone street. Easy walk from the train station with lots of great restaurants, cafes and stores near by. Easy to take day trips to Rome, orvieto, Assisi , etc. One tip...don't try to drive within the walled city. Streets are extremely small. Sylvia was a wonderful host. She made sure we had everything we needed. Telephoned us a couple of days after arrival. We enjoyed her house and the ability to walk everywhere and then come back and relax. Great value for the price!

Viterbo is an area of historic architectural & archaeological importance. The word 'Conclave', describing the locking of the doors for the election of the pope was coined in the Papal Palace of Viterbo. (The locals got fed-up feeding the cardinals and their retinue and locked them in until they could agree on a candidate!) The Spa 'Termi Dei Papi,was used by the popes and includes a wonderful pool. One can simply spend the day by the pool which is in a beautiful park or try out the spa. Prices are very reasonable. The area is surrounded by scenic beauty, with Lakes Vico, Bolsena, Trasimeno and Bracciano nearby and the Mediterranean sea half an hour away. It is also possible to drive to the Adriatic sea and back in the same day as Viterbo is perfectly located for day trips. The Cimini mountains are just outside the city walls to the south and produce wonderful hazelnuts. There are picnic tables and walks in the woods. The famous Villa Lante is also less than half an hour away and well worth a visit.

Close to Rome, the train leaves every hour and takes an hour and forty minutes. Half an hour from Tuscany, the scenery from Rome to Viterbo is peaceful,with rural, farmland and views of the lakes. It is a very pleasant journey looking out at the scenery from the upper level of the train. In Rome,the train stops at St. Peter's or close to the tram at Trastevere, which will take you to Largo Argentina, - where Julius Caesar was assassinated as the Forum was being revamped at the time. This is a minute's walk from the Pantheon and close to Piazza Navona.

Immediately surrounding the house you will find Antique shops,and the Arts and Crafts shops of artisans. Summer Festivals include the flower festival when the streets are covered in flowers, the Opera, Literary and Arts Festivals and also the Medieval festival. The most famous festival, which has been deemed a Unesco World Heritage event, is the Festival of Santa Rosa, patron Saint of the town, held in the first week of September. It is well worth looking it up as no words can express the experience of seeing one hundred local men, who are so respected for their role in the festival and treated like heroes, lift a structure of five tons with the statue of Santa Rosa on top of it and all lit up with lamps and candles, and carry this structure, called the Macchina di Santa Rosa, around the medieval town.

Guided tours of local historical places are available and several museums are within walking distance. Interesting Festivals are held both in Viterbo and neighbouring towns throughout the year. Wine tasting can be enjoyed on the road from Viterbo to Montefiascone where the story of the wine called Est Est Est was discovered and is still made. The small towns around Lake Bolsena are a joy, each with its own character. The Saturday Market at Viterbo is a must for all ladies, but every visitor must experience the amazing Cafe Schenardi on Via Roma. This cafe is the place you will return to again and again. The local restaurants are numerous and beautifully located and use fresh local produce.

Bulicame, where the waters and volcanic mud used in the spa, rises in a park just meters from Terme dei Papi and is free to all. It was mentioned by Dante in his 'Inferno' (The only Pope in Dante's 'Paradiso' is buried in the cathedral of Viterbo, a few minutes walk from the house.

The hot water rises up from underground and bubbles over the land, creating shelves of rock-pools. It is like stepping into a warm bath.

Visits to archaeological sites can be arranged and may cause you to add a new interest to your winter evening classes. The whole area is populated with Etruscan tombs. Although the walls of our house are 900 years old, it has been lovingly restored to the height of modern standards internally by a specialist in architectural renovations.

A very important aspect of Viterbo is the hospitality and helpfulness of the neighbours. They go out of their way to help visitors. To stay in this house is to experience a genuine taste of life in Italy, not as a tourist, but as part of the truly wonderful community. Actually, some guests have requested that the secret of Viterbo be kept secret, because it is so unique, it should not be changed. We respect and are part of the local community, a privilege for which we are grateful and for which our guests have expressed great praise and enjoyment. But you have to come for yourself to experience it!

Step back in time to experience a haven of peace in this genuine Medieval house in Viterbo. It is an experience you will treasure always.
