Capranica is a beautiful medieval village on Via Cassia : 25 km from Viterbo and 55 from Rome. With the Capital it is connected by a suburban train.
Once upon a time, it was an Etruscan settlement. The Francigena route still passes through Capranica: in ancient times the route brought pilgrims from northern Europe to visit Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome.
Built on a hill, Capranica dominates green and lush valleys, with extensive hazelnut plantations. You can do "photography hunting" because there is a wide variety of wildlife in the area. In the nearby town of Sutri you can stroll through an important Etruscan necropolis and a Roman amphitheater, all extremely well preserved, as well as a mitreous and Romanesque Duomo.
The lakes of Vico and Bracciano, bathing areas, are closeby and easy to reach.
My home is located in the heart of the old town. In a dominant position and with an exceptional view of the surrounding valleys. Very close to a car park accessible by public lift.
I have decorated it personally and with great care. Paying attention to every detail: from the vintage tiles on the fireplace hood, to the furnishings and to minor details. Optimizing spaces. Nothing is banal. The house is perfect and ready to be lived in.
A cherished home, of which I have serene and fantastic memories. I recommend it to quiet people and nature lovers who want to enjoy a private existence. Working serenely at their favourite hobbies.
Capranica is also an ideal place to play golf. The nearest golf course is a 5-minute drive away, “Golf Nazionale”, run by the Italian Golf Federation. A second golf course is located in Monterosi, 19 minutes from Capranica and a third one in Olgiata, Olgiata Golf Club, 30 minutes by car.
Rome is a one hour drive, Val d’Orcia (Tuscany) a two hour drive.
