Why Maria Emilia chose Lubriano
It was my granny's house in the countryside. We spent there many weekends, with friends and guests or just working to restore it or....because in the country you always have something to do!
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
We have preferred to keep the typical features of the old farmhouse . There is a large fireplace in the kitchen and a small wood oven in the outer wall of the house, where several times we have tried to make bread.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
A wonderful place for a relaxing break
We were four friends staying in the house and loved every minute of it. There is plenty of outdoor space, an oven where we made pizza, a huge chestnut tree, fig trees. The beds were comfortable and the rooms cosy.
A true Italian Countryside experience.
My family enjoyed our stay in Lubriano, not as close to the village as expected; and we never found the beautiful water scenes depicted on the website. The price was good and the owner a lovely person. The cherry tree produced lots of delicious fruit for us. We would return to this property.
Hi! I'm happy you enjoyed your holiday at Casale della nonna.
I'm sorry you expected it to be closer to the village as I wrote in the description that it is in the country, at 1km and 200 metres from the center of the village...
As for the water scenes, they refer to the Lake Bolsena and to Bagnaia, Villa Lante, as I wrote in the captions of the pictures. They are two places in the area that are really worth to be visited. Maybe in the anerican version of Homeaway they weren't translated and that caused confusion.. I'll check it .
Next time you come, I'll explain you how to reach them :)

"It's a lovely house with...
"It's a lovely house with a garden in with the children could play. The bedrooms are nice, the bathrooms clean and the living comfortable.
When we arrived late in the evening we enjoyed a warm welcome by the owner. The beds were ready and the house had a comfortable temperature, which we appreciated very much. The owner enthousistically informed us about the tings to do and see. We had a very nice stay."
From 19 June till 9 July ...
From 19 June till 9 July 2004 we spent our summer holiday in the country house in Lubriano of Emi(lia) and Sandro Meschini. We have been to Italy several times and it is always a challenge to find a quiet and nice place with a lot of privacy. Well, this property offers it all. Right from the beginning Emi and Sandro gave us the comfortable feeling of having made the right choice. Their generous hospitality, willingness to help and enthusiasm certainly contributed to a wonderful holiday. Although temperatures may rise to high levels , the house itself remains nicely cool which helps to ensure a good night rest (like also the good beds do). Thanks to its completeness, we did not miss anything in the house. As BBQ lovers we found it a bit weird to have the BBQ on the street side at a distance from the house/outside furniture. Perhaps something to change in the future? Although Lubriano itself does not offer a lot, it is a good starting base to visit cities like Orvieto, Todi, Rome, Siena, Pienza and Moltepulciano. There are not many restaurants in the neighbourhood, but we can certainly recommend the very nearby restaurant Jovez. Nice and friendly people, no fix menus, but what you get is very good and tasty.
Une maison très agréable dans un cadre superbe
La maison est proche de Lubriano mais à la campagne donc très calme. Elle est bien équipée avec un grand jardin et la possibilité de manger dehors ou d’y lire tranquillement.
A partir de cette maison il est facile d’accéder aux multiples sites et villes des environs.
L’accueil est chaleureux, les renseignements précieux pour aller dîner ou visiter. Maria Émilia est très prévenante. Une adresse à retenir.
Our house is at the borders between Lazio and Umbria, in the countryside, but not alone, in a very interesting area, from natural, historic and gastronomic point of view.
Lubriano is just in front of Civita di Bagnoregio, the so called “dying town” and its suggestive Calanchi valley: an amazing view from the “Belvedere” in the village!
It is an ideal starting point for daily trips to the typical villages of Umbria: Orvieto, Todi, Narni, Spoleto, Assisi, Perugia, etc.and of Tuscany too, with the old towns of Sovana, Sorano, Pitigliano and the thermal springs in Saturnia.
Bolsena is only 13 km far from the house: the small town is full of story (Roman excavations, Basilica di Santa Cristina with the miracle chapel, Rocca Monaldeschi with its museum..) and full of touristic facilities (beaches, boat trips and restaurants). The lake is the largest volcanic lake in Europe. In summer you can swim in it and sunbath along the beaches, all around.
The house is 34 km far from Viterbo, the old city of the Popes, with its mediaeval quarters, its fountains and its thermal springs of Bagnaccio and Bullicame, mentioned by Dante too in his “Divina Commedia”. Viterbo is the main town in Tuscia, a land rich in art, history and nature, tours, festivals and events.
Worth to be seen:
Archaeological sites: Etruscan necropolis in Tarquinia, rock necropolis in Norchia, Castel d’Asso and several others. Roman theatre in Ferento.
Churches and typical historic centres: Viterbo, San Martino al Cimino, Tuscania, Montefiascone, Vitorchiano, Civita di Bagnoregio, Bassano in Teverina, Calcata.
Late Renaissance villas: Villa Lante in Bagnaia, Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola, Monster Park in Bomarzo.
Naturalistic environments: volcanic lakes (Bolsena, with its islands and Vico), natural reserve of Monte Rufeno, the Calanchi Valley, the thermal springs in Viterbo and Saturnia.
Routes: Via Francigena, a mediaeval route of pilgrims who came from the whole Europe towards Rome, especially around the 11th century.
Gastronomic itineraries, several “festivals” of typical products, according to the season (wine, oil, beans, porcini mushrooms, chestnuts, hazelnuts..)
Rome, no need to speak about it…. is only 120 km. You can reach it by car or by train from Orvieto Scalo. Siena is 120 km far from the house, and Florence 150 km.
You have no time to get bored and , at the end of the day, you can relax on the hammock in the garden and simply enjoy nature…
