Appartamento Ciccodicolla is a distinguished apartment in Arpino, located on Via Ciccodicola in the historic centre of Arpino, a beauitful medieval hilltop town only 90 minutes drive from the centre of Rome and from Rome's airports. Shops, cafés, restaurants and services are within a few minutes walk.

As one navigates from the central Piazza Municipio towards the district of Civita Falconara and winding toward the Castle of King Ladislaus, it is impossible to miss the beautiful sight of the Santa Maria di Civita Church. Here, in the heart of this charming ancient neighborhood and on the Piazza di Santa Maria di Civita, we find the property offered for sale - a spacious apartment spanning a total of 240 square meters, arranged over two levels. This wonderful home is situated within a magnificent historical building, erected in the 1700s to house King Ladislaus's soldiers. A truly captivating place, completely renovated in 2020, it boasts two unattached sides and is set at an angle with excellent external views.

The apartment features a communal entrance providing direct access to the FIRST FLOOR, and a second independent entrance with direct access to the GROUND FLOOR. Upon entering the ground floor through a magnificent double door adorned with glass panes, one is welcomed into the main living space-a splendid area, rustic in style yet thoroughly modern in finish and specification. This room, the true centerpiece of the home, is not only functional but also aesthetically captivating and is indeed the very heart of the house. Here, the blend of rustic and modern elements is evident in a space bathed innatural light. The modern meets the traditional as the convivial area merges seamlessly with the open kitchen, the whole decorated with warm and inviting accents in a tasteful style with hints of middle-century industrial. Traditional style intertwines with contemporary sensibility with excellent use of materials, steel and timber set against existing stone and white rendered walls, while the warm porcelain stoneware flooring exudes rustic yet elegant charm. The ceiling adorned with striking exposed dark wooden beams supporting white stucco imparts a sense of order - a modern scheme in an ancient setting, elements both architectural and decorative imbue the space with character and style.

Modernity blends harmoniously with antiquity throughout and natural materials such as treated timber and exposed stone aid in the creation of a captivating fusion of styles. From this wonderful entrance, one is transported to a splendid antiquity-infused space which is the essence of ancient times. An arch crafted from stone, nestled within the living area, leads to a cave-like dining room spanning 32 square meters. A charming relic of a bygone era, entirely constructed from stone, with barrel-vaulted ceilings accentuating the undeniable aesthetic beauty. This unique room combines modern comfort with a strong connection to the past, with exposed brick and natural stone. This is an extraordinary dwelling boasting unique charm within its interiors.

On the ground floor, a bathroom spanning 5 square meters, a 2 square meter storage room, and an area of approximately 20 square meters, host utility spaces including the water, technical, and boiler rooms.

Returning to the living area we can admire the distinctive open staircase linking the Ground Floor to the sleeping quarters of the First Floor. This is a unique corten steel staircase which is of particular architectural interest, with its oxidized chromatic hue and sophisticated design.

The First Floor is a warm and inviting environment featuring an elegant and charming small balcony, continuous porcelain stoneware flooring, pure white walls and ceilings, and exposed brickwork. Together these elements create an intimate and welcoming atmosphere, infused with the ancient and, as with the rest of the residence, decorated with that tasteful blend of rustic and contemporary. An 80 square meter sleeping area bathed in abundant natural light is simply enchanting with a 13 square meter bedroom, followed by a bathroom of 4 square meters with a shower enclosure. Further on we find the beautiful 23 square meter Master Bedroom -a harmonious blend of style and charm. Within this bedroom, the 7 square meter bathroom with a shower offers modern style at its finest, with pale ceramics adorning the floors and walls in natural hues. Additionally in the First Floor corridor, a 4 square meter walk-in closet provides useful storage.

In summary, the property comprises a 120 square meter GROUND FLOOR with a living area and open kitchen, a bathroom, a storage room, a cave/salon, and an area divided into utility rooms including water, technical, and boiler rooms. In addition an 80 square meter FIRST FLOOR featuring a second street entrance, corridor, a bedroom, a bathroom with shower, a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, and finally, a walk-in closet.

The property features a security door, fiber optic connectivity, triple-glazed wooden/aluminum windows, a 3,000-liter water pressure system, a boiler, reserved parking for residents, a satellite dish, methane gas radiator heating, and an energy efficiency rating of "A."

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 publicised 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 Alvito 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.
