- Penthouse apartment dating from the 1700s
- Superbly frescoed entrance hall
- Decorated antique glass windows
- Large roof terrace with panoramic views
- Perfectly positioned on Arpino's main piazza
- Possibility of installing lift if desired
- Excellent road access

The apartment is presently configured with an entrance hall, the fresoced sitting room, the dining room, the kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom on the lower floor; and with an internal stairway leading up to three very large rooms (one only partially restored) and a bathroom under the roof. Further internal stairs lead up to the roof terrace with its stunning panoramic view over the town.
The apartment is fully habitable at present. However, remodelling by the purchaser could readily remove various partition walls that have been inserted in more recent years, thus creating fewer but larger rooms. For example, on the lower floor, there could be the frescoed sitting room, an expanded entrance hall with a wider, /more sweeping staircase leading to the upper floor, a large dining room restored to its original size, a larger and more modern kitchen and a master bedroom suite. The attic floor could be configured to include any or all of several further bedrooms and bathrooms, a study, a playroom or hobby room - the possibilities are endless.
The roof terrace only awaits plants and garden furniture to be a haven of relaxation and enjoyment, not only during the day but also for the long warm summer evenings.
The apartment is approached up wide stone flights of stairs; there is ample space in the centre of the stairwell to instal a lift should the purchaser so desire. There is easy road access to nearby free public car parking - and the centre of Rome is only a ninety minute drive away, as is Rome airport and also Naples.

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.
