- Casa Leriénze enjoys a quiet location, but is only minutes walk from the main piazza
- A beautiful old building in the historic centre of Arpino, a medieval hilltop town
- Light, spacious rooms, one with an enchanting little balcony looking across the valley
- Stone walled courtyard garden ideal for al fresco dining
- Large, high-ceilinged cantina with separate street entrances
- Only ninety minutes from Rome and its international airports
There are two large and quiet bedrooms. Currently there is only one bathroom, but there is further unused space next to it (with another window) where it would be very easy to create a second bathroom.
On the lower level, there are extensive ground level cantinas, with two doors opening onto the street, which might be adapted into shops or a little bar or restaurant, or alternatively further living accommodation. There is also the shady courtyard garden, which backs onto a many centuries old stone wall, and would be particularly charming for al fresco dining.
Shops, bars, restaurants, cafés and services are within a few minutes walk. There is nearby free public parking. The town of Arpino has excellent road access to the superstrada and then the autostrada leading to Rome, which is only 90 minutes drive.

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.
