The apartment is entered through an elegant foyer. To the right is a spacious living/dining room, furnished with a comfortable sofa and armchairs, a large dining table and chairs, a china cabinet and bookcases. Straight ahead is another room, with an attractively tiled floor and a welcoming brick and stone fireplace, currently used as a casual TV room. The kitchen and bedrooms open off this room.
The attractive, fully fitted kitchen is new. The tall cabinet to the left of the oven and hob hides the built in fridge and freezer. A table in the kitchen facilitates casual family dining. The main bedroom is light and spacious with capacious storage and a fine Italian matrimonial wood-framed bed. There are two further single bedrooms, each with a window looking out onto a charming small 'vicolo', a narrow side street. The bathroom is very large and well-finished, with an unusually big walk-in shower as well as a full-sized bath.
At the top of the stairs to the lower portion of the apartment, there is a convenient and sizeable cleaning cupboard. A stone and wrought-iron staircase leads down into the cellar, the 'cantina', the first room of which was previously used for storing local wine and olive oil. There is another large room, with its own street entrance, which is currently used only as a utility room, but could easily be put to other purposes. Finally there is a large two car garage with a roller-shutter door, a valuable feature in a town centre where private parking is a much sought-after commodity.
Casa Fiorletta is a minute's walk from a little piazza with a cafe, hairdresser, butcher, grocer, dry cleaner, tailor and wine store; even nearer is a well-stocked small supermarket and a very nice delicatessen/cheese shop/enoteca. A couple of minutes in the other direction takes you to the main piazza of Arpino, with its many cafe/bars, two pharmacies, florists, pizzeria, restaurant, opticians, newsagents, clothes shops, several small museums etc.
Sold fully furnished, in immaculate condition, with all utilities including central heating connected and in good working condition, Casa Fiorletta represents an effortless way for you to acquire an Italian home in the heart of the historic centre of an ancient hilltop town.

ARPINO AND THE CIOCIARIA
Arpino is one of the major medieval hilltop towns in the area of Italy called the Ciociaria, the name given to the fertile land that lies south of Rome but north of Naples, situated inland in the hills in the heart of Italy.
The Ciociaria region is within easy reach of both Rome and Naples and their respective airports. A day's shopping in Rome is a common pastime, while an even shorter drive brings you to the charming beaches south of Rome. Alternatively, drive east, and the mountains of the Abruzzo National Park await with horse trekking in the magnificent beech forests, and sparkling mountain lakes and rivers where you can swim in the heat of the summer. And at the other extreme of temperature, although Arpino itself is temperate, less than an hour's drive brings you to the winter ski slopes.
Often overlooked, both by tourists and by those foreigners in search of an Italian home, in favour of the more publicized regions of Tuscany and Umbria, the Ciociaria remains largely an unspoilt gem with beautiful scenery and medieval hilltop towns. A home or second home in the Ciociaria, in the hilltop towns of Arpino, Veroli, Alatri or in the rolling countryside that surrounds them, will afford you a setting where over two thousand years of history combine with an idyllic rural Italian lifestyle, where you can still discover the 'real' Italy and take time out from the busy crowds of the larger tourist cities, while being less than ninety minutes journey from central Rome or either of Rome's two airports.
