A cozy house in a quiet sun-filled valley with enough shade from mature trees to provide coolness on hot days. The pool allows for refreshing dips on days when you opt to just relax around the house. Within walkable distance to the village, the house is completely private yet not isolated. A charming cafe in the village offers free WiFi (and great coffee, artisinal ice cream, snacks, aperitifs).

A lovely two-storey stone country house an easy 90 minute drive from Rome.
It is also possible to rent only the ground floor -- ideal for a couple -- at Euro 70 per night.
Ideal for a vacation with children, the house is surrounded by undulating land, olive groves, and fruit trees -- a lot of outdoor space to run around and play. Three bedrooms: one large bedroom on the ground floor (with a queen-sized bed) and two on the second floor, including a master bedroom (queen-sized bed) and a smaller bedroom with two single beds. A full bathroom on each floor (both have showers, one also a bathtub), a large kitchen, including a dish washer and a washing machine.
Tastefully furnished and outfitted with bed sheets, towels, etc. There is a large living room with a working fire place. Cozy. A large terrace that looks out on the medieval castle of Celleno has a long stone table that seats up to 12 people. There is an outdoor pizza oven and grill.
Day trips to Rome, Orvietto, Viterbo, Florence, Assissi, Siena, Perugia, Civita di Bagnoregio, Montefiascone, Tuscania, etc. 20 minutes to the largest volcanic lake in Europe with its crystal clear water, lago Bolzena, as well as the Papal Spa -- Terme dei Papi -- in Viterbo.
While Celleno has enough to keep you in food and drink -- a small but well stocked supermarket, a couple of butchers, a bakery, a pizza restaurant with a wood-burning oven, a couple of cafes -- you can also drive to Viterbo, Montefiascone or Bagnoregio for a bigger shop. These towns also have a satisfying number of very good restaurants.
Our house combines country-house privacy and tranquility with a comfortable closeness to town.
Depending on the time of year, our garden offers tomatoes, cherries, nuts, edible chestnuts, kaki, apples, pears, peaches and plums. You are welcome to eat them all!! The region is renown for its olive oil, and, if you wish, you can buy it directly from the locals to take home with you, at a very reasonable price.
The whole house and surrounding garden and olive grove. Fields beyond the house.
As much as the guests want to interact with me.
I love that it is both completely private but not isolated, as the village of Celleno is within walking distance (under a kilometer).
There is a public bus that one can take from the village of Celleno to the larger town of Viterbo (approximately 20 minutes) which has a train station. From there one can take a lovely train ride to Rome, for example (90 min). Trains come regularly and are inexpensive (under Euro 10 one-way ticket to Rome).
Complete house, private pool, garden, fields and olive grove. Fields beyond the house. Depending on the time of year, eat tomatoes from small vegetable; fruit trees; walnut trees, edible chestnuts.

I can be reached by phone, text or email to resolve any issues. We have a great property manager who will come if needed. He doesn't speak much English, but if there's an issue, please text me and I will communicate to him. His name is Rigo and his wife, the housekeeper, is Ludmila. Should you want to hire her to clean the house do laundry, etc. during your stat at the house, please let me know and I will find out her availability (this would be an additional expense, not covered by your per night cost). The cleaning included in the cost of rental is the final one that takes place after you leave to prepare house for next guest.
There is an outdoor market that takes place in Celleno once a week, and in surrounding villages, depending on the day. The schedule is posted in the kitchen. The best place to do a large shop is in the town of Viterbo, because it has a huge and very reasonably prices supermarket in the local shopping center (inside the Centro Commerciale Tuscia). However, you can get all your basics in Celleno Nuovo (new Celleno) with an excellent butcher shop a few doors down from the post office (local meats, amazing steaks); two small but well stocked general food stores -- one is a small general supermarket but with a very good selection of cheeses, prosciutti, etc. The other, next to the butcher near postoffice, is a food store with good selection of basics, including fresh mozzarella, and you can ask the shop owner, Rita, to order fresh pasta (including ready-made lasagna, tortellini, etc) from a nearby town. A pharmacy is located right next to Rita's food shop. A small, delicious smelling bakery is located right next to the sports bar on Via Roma, but it's best to get there early before they sell out. They have amazing pizza bianca! There are about three + hairdressers/barbers in the town, at last count.
All furniture, such as chairs, that may be taken outside during your visit must be put back into the house.
