This 170 sq.mt. home is located in a beautiful old building that has now been divided into large apartments.
An entrance hall leads into a very large living room, with a log fireplace. This living room has a small balcony, which has however been predisposed to be extended into a larger area, where it would be possible to have chairs and a small table. There is also a guest toilet.
There is a second good sized sitting room, opening onto a balcony overlooking the piazza. There are two bedrooms, one also with a balcony. At present, only one of the bedrooms has an ensuite bathroom, but there is space to create an ensuite also off the second bedroom.
The large kitchen has plenty of space for modern equipment, but also retains as a feature the old stoves, and a large pizza/bread oven. Opening off the kitchen is a walled internal courtyard area: filled with plants and lanterns, it would be perfect for al fresco dining.
Moments from shops, restaurants, bars and cafés, Casa Latessa combines a central location in the heart of the life of the town (with windows and balconies overlooking the bustling piazza, local concerts and processions, etc,) with more private, internal areas, where you can withdraw into your own calm and tranquil domain.
Casa Latessa has excellent street access and there is nearby free public parking. Arpino has very fast access to the superstrada/autostrada to Rome, which is only a ninety minute drive away.
The property requires some modernisation and re-fitting.

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.
