About our home

Our newly restored home is perfectly located between Rome and Naples in the Ciociaria area, off the tourist map. The coast, with wonderful beaches and historic towns, is an hour away and the Abruzzo mountains are also just an hour for amazing hikes and skiing. The house sits in two hectares of land with a view towards the Castle of Count 'aAquino and the small town of Roccasecca. Our home is not your usual Tuscan dream house but a 'small' farmer's cottage with underfloor heating, loads of light and modern bathrooms. We love light, colour, wood, steel and stone. The surrounding area offers loads to see and do - cycling, walking, touring, eating, festivals etc. The A1 autostrada is 15 minutes away and the local train station has direct trains to Rome. Having just finished the house we will be starting on the landscaping soon - but this will be a work-in-process for some time!

Where is it?


We are situated on the outskirts of Roccasecca, a medieval town and the birthplace of Thomas of Aquino. Close by are numerous hill top villages, gorges, monasteries and mountains. Great for outdoor excursions. Our area is full of natural beauty and plenty of life and history. It's more edgy than other areas having been substantially impacted during the 2WW and there is now a mix of small industry, artisanal workshops and agriculture.
