The property occupies the entire top floor of one wing of the huge palazzo situated behind the fountain. This wing has its own street entrance and has been divided into two apartments, this property and an apartment occupying the lower floor.
The apartment is approached up a flight of beautiful curving stone steps. Entering through the front door, a wide entrance hall leads to a living dining room at one end and a large master bedroom at the other. The living/dining room is effectively a double room, has an open fireplace in the sitting area and opens into a small kitchen from the dining room end. The kitchen has a door which gives direct access to the small private courtyard.
The very large master bedroom opens onto a dressing room, with access to both the bathroom and the same private courtyard. There is a good-sized second bedroom.
At ground level, behind the flight of stone stairs, there is a fine 'cantina' (cellar) for storage, where some of the original pre-Roman stonework can be seen.
Appartamento della Fontana has been fully restored by its architect owner. All utilities are connected and the property is available for immediate occupancy. It enjoys excellent street access and there is nearby public parking. It benefits from a quiet setting while being just a stone's throw from the main piazza with its cafés, bars, shops and services.

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.
