The home current structure is from the 14th century and it has been recently restored by the architect and interior designer owner to become a comfortable and unique vacation home that will take you on a journey through the history of Italy and the town of Civita di Bagnoregio. The 14th century core has a living room, dining room, a study and 3 bedroom suites all with private bath: it sleeps 6 people in queen and king size beds and has room for 2 extra people in twin beds. An older part of the house is composed of caves and grottos dating back to Etruscan and Roman times that have been fully incorporated into the home's livable spaces: it boasts a unique wine cellar inside a Roman water cistern, a garden kitchen and a spectacular pool with jacuzzi inside beautiful caves opening onto the garden, a meditation room, an art gallery and more. The garden is a masterpiece of formal Italian design hanging on the edge of a tufa stone cliff, with a gazebo for al fresco dining and a BBQ, outdoor living space, amazing vistas all around.
Everything is designed with beauty and the comfort of our guests in mind. All the finishes and material are superb and the amenities provided are very luxurious.
Patrizio was born and raised in Rome and moved to the United States in 1996 to live with his partner Mark in Chicago. While Patrizio is an architect and Interior designer , Mark is a Psycotherapist. They share a passion for great art, architecture and traveling the world. One of the shared passion has become over the years to purchase and restore beautiful old delapitaed structures and rent them as vacation homes to discerning travellers who appreciate good design and beautiful destinations in Itay and Mexico. This restoration project was challenging and exciting and we are delighted to share the results with you.
We purchased this property because of the beauty of its setting in one of the most beautiful and magical places of central Italy, the town of Civita di Bagnoregio. We were compelled to take the old structure of the house rich with amazing layers of history, and turn it into a modern vacation home for ourselves, our family and friends, as well as the rest of the world. Civita is a treasure to share and we love the idea of surprising our guests with the amazing features of this home, Domus Civita.
The benefits of renting our home, Domus Civita, is that you will get an unmatched architectural, design and cultural experience by staying there. We personally fell in love with the rich history of Civita, the grace and friendliness of the inhabitants of the town, the shear beauty of this magical place and we think that our guests will experience this and more about the house as well as the town and the surrounding areas.
