FREE WI-FI ALL OVER THE PROPERTY
Our welcome guests staying at HOUSE in GREEN have the chance to enjoy their time BIKING OR HIKING (with or without GUIDE) through the lovely contryside, olive groves and woods around the quiet village of Castel Cellesi. During the excursion it is possible to admire natural beauties but also archaelogical excavations, mysterious etruscan grottoes (later used by local Brigands as hiding places), a Monastery, Churches Castles and even the remains of a prehistorical MAMMUT recently discovered near Castel Cellesi.
For stronger and more energetic guests there are tracks and paths (Bic) leading to Civita di Bagnoregio through the unusual landscape of the "Calanchi Valley" (eroded clay hills). Civita di Bagnoregio is called the "Dying City" because it lies in a vast canyon atop a pinnacle continously eroded by wind and rain. It is connected by a footbridge to the town of Bagnoregio.
A longer excursion (Bic) take people to Lake Bolsena and to the picturesque villages around it.
Bicycle Rentals, Bic and Hiking guided Tours are to be paid on site Cash.

Patrizia's retreat is located at castel cellesi (200 souls). Castel cellesi is a subset of bagnoregio, near viterbo in the tuscia aerea (the etruscan italy) at the crossroad of three different regions: tuscany, umbria and latium. The beauty of lazio is often obscured by the fame of rome (120 km. From castel cellesi) but the region has a lot to offer besides the eternal city: a wealth of art, history, archaeology, culinary traditions and culture. Especially the area north of rome, around the city of viterbo (28 km. From castel cellesi) is full of great destinations, such as:
Viterbo itself with the pope's palace, the cathedral church, medieval quarters and city walls.
Near viterbo the 'hot spa' terme dei papi.
Orvieto (km. 27 from castel cellesi) with its colourful, spectacular cathedral church,
Medieval streets and palaces.
Civita di bagnoregio 'the dying city' atop a pinnacle in a vast canyon ruled by wind and erosion. It is connected by a footbridge to the town of bagnoregio. Civita is an artist's dream, a town in the nude.
Bolsena lake with a lot of small towns and villages around it. One of the best known is bolsena, because of the so called 'miracle of bolsena' which took place in the town itself back in the middle ages.
Montefiascone also giving onto the lake is very famous for its churches but also for its excellent wine called est! Est! Est
Around the lake many very well equipped beaches for sunbathing. Also swimming and sailing are possible.
Tarquinia, tuscania, vetralla - etruscan sites, tombs and museums
Assisi, todi, siena and florence are also easily reachable.
Hiking is possible around castel cellesi : well sign-posted trails and paths
In terms of location patrizia's retreat at castel cellesi is a secluded place, but supermarkets and good restaurants are dotted around the area all within a 15 minutes drive. Private car is highly recommended. Don't be concened with driving around the area as it is very well sign-posted and empty of traffic.
If you are looking for relaxation combined with a bit of genuine italy you can't be wrong with this place !!!!
