Our guesthouse is located just outside the center of Castel Giorgio. If you want, you can walk to the village where you can drink your cappuccino or aperitif in the bar, find various restaurants and pizzerias, and make purchases in the small supermarkets or local shops.

Everything is possible by car:

In less than half an hour you can reach:

  • ORVIETO  is one of the most beautiful places in Umbria. The city is built on a volcanic tuff plateau that rises majestically amid the green landscape with vineyards, cypresses and olive trees. Orvieto is not large, but very atmospheric. You will be amazed of the beautiful facade of the Duomo and the colorful frescoes in this church, but Orvieto is much more than that. You can take an underground walk, dug into the tuff and discover Etruscan, medieval and Renaissance remains.  From the top of the Torre del Moro you have a beautiful view of the distant surroundings. And the Saint Patrick's well that Pope Clemente VII had built takes you up to 54m deep. Stroll through the atmospheric streets, enjoy the casual atmosphere and end the day with a glass of typical Orvieto Classico wine.

  • BOLSENA gives his name to the largest volcanic lake in Europe. With its pure water and countless fish species, the small old village area around the castle, the cozy streets full of shops with authentic products, is a small paradise. Thanks to the boulevard with centuries-old plane trees and the numerous restaurants with terraces on the beach, you get an instant holiday feeling here. You can take a trip on the lake with the tourist boat and see the two islands up close. You could visit the island of Bisentina with a guide.  Around the lake with a circumference of 65 km, at the highest point is Montefiascone with its famous wine Est-Est-Est, the cozy fishing village of Marta, Capodimonte where you can rent a boat and be your own captain on the lake, Gradoli with some very good fish restaurants next to the water, and San Lorenzo Nuovo from which you have a perfect view of all the grandeur of the lake. All these villages have their sand, gravel or stone beaches with access to the lake for a wonderful refreshing dip.​

  • TORRE ALFINA takes you back in time. This small village is built around an imposing castle that looks high above the high plateau where we are. Below the castle is the monumental ancient forest Bosco del Sasseto. With a guide you can walk through this fairytale forest and enjoy untouched nature.

  • CIVITA DI BAGNOREGION also known as the dying city. This old part of the city is located on the top of a rock that has been eroding over the centuries and parts of it have broken off. What remains is a smart authentic village. The view of it and the road to it are perhaps the most spectacular. To get there you can only cross a long bridge by foot.

  • SANT'ANGELO, the fairytale village, and you can take this literally. This village was virtually deserted until 2016 when a creative local resident started the initiative to invite artists. In 2017, the first mural "Alice in Wonderland" was inaugurated, and since then the entire village has been decorated with more than 40 murals of fairy tales and fables that makes young and old dreaming.

An hour's drive away:

  • BOMARZO with his Monsterpark. This so-called Sacred Forest extends over almost 3 hectares with deciduous and coniferous trees. In this forest you will be catapulted into an imaginative world, populated with mythological animals and gigantic stone monsters that have evoked fear, surprise and wonder in every visitor who passes through it for more than 500 years, that is, since the architect Pirro Ligorio created it commissioned by Prince Pier Francesco Orsini (also known as Vicino Orsini).

  • VULCI an ancient Etruscan city, is located in the Tuscia area of Viterbo, between the municipalities of Canino and Montalto di Castro and was one of the most important city-states of Etruria. The archaeological nature park with its 120 hectares is of rare beauty, with  trails and hiking trails to discover the beauty of the Maremma Laziale area. The ruins that can be visited today date from both Etruscan and Roman times including ancient city walls; a Mithraeum, a sanctuary dedicated to the goddess Mithra, dating from the 3rd century; a noble residential area, dating from the 2nd century BC with decorations in the building, and beautiful mosaics on the floor; a Necropolis, where, among other things, is the Tomb of the Ceilings, dating from the 7th century BC

  • MONTALTO MARINA is the nearest coastal city. With its sandy beaches, it is ideal for a day of enjoying the Tyrrhenian Sea.

  • VILLA LANTE in Bagnaia, a hamlet of Viterbo, is one of the most famous Renaissance gardens, spread over three large terraces. The garden looks like a waterfall descending from the top of the hills to a valley downstream. The water, channeled into the basins and sculpted paths of the monumental fountains (The Flood, the Dolphins, the Chain, the Table, the Giants – Arno and Tiber – the Lumini, the Square Fountain), still surprises ears and eyes today.

  • PITIGLIANO Situated on a tuff cliff, the town rises imposingly above the valleys and offers beautiful views of the wild and unspoilt nature of this area of the Tuscan Maremma. The city has an ancient history, the area has in fact been inhabited since Neolithic times, but it is with the arrival of the Etruscans that its real history begins, the Etruscans built the famous Vie Cave, very old streets built by hand in the tuff have been dugged, used as a communication and defense route. Today Pitigliano is a true jewel of art, history and culture, every corner of the historic center tells of a past, rich in history, the narrow alleys, the small squares, the panoramic views, in Pitigliano everything is magical.

  • CASCATE DEL MULINO A SATURNIA are the most beautiful free hot springs in Italy, a naturalistic place that can be visited every day and at any time, a place that must be protected and preserved. The waterfalls come from the sulphurous waters of the Terme di Saturnia, where the water flows from a natural spring at a temperature of 37.5°C. It is characterized by the beneficial effects it has on the skin, on digestion and the circulation, but it is especially relaxing to enjoy the warm water in the open air, surrounded by nature.

  • LA SCARZUOLA Guarded by the forests of the most rural areas of Umbria, it is possible to discover one of the most eclectic, mysterious and symbolic architectural works of the Italian cultural heritage . La Scarzuola is the surreal, dreamy and elusive vision of Tomaso Buzzi. In 1956, he purchased and restored the Franciscan monastery complex. Between 1958 and 1978 he designed and built his Ideal City next to the monastery, conceived as a "theatrical machine". His cousin Marco Solari guides you on a symbolic and alchemical path that unfolds before the open soul and reveals metaphors of all lives, overloaded with symbols and secrets, references and quotes.

For those who want to go on a day trip, you can reach in 90 min:

  • ASSISI is the birthplace of San Francesco, who is buried in the Basilica. Perhaps it is due to its dominant position over the valley, or to the light stone with which it is built, but the Basilica is certainly one of those places that, even though you may not be a believer, can still give you a moment of spirituality. Besides these and the Basilica of Santa Chiara, Assisi has much more to offer. You can follow important moments in the life of San Francisco, but the town square also has impressive buildings that are worth seeing. There you can also see important remains that testify a rich Roman past. Don't forget that Assisi, like all of Umbria, is appreciated for its excellent culinary products, such as ciauscolo, a spreadable cured meat that goes well with local bread, and the delicious Umbricelli with black truffle.

  • AREZZO is a pleasant town in Tuscany with a history dating back to the Etruscans. In addition to visiting the various historical and religious monuments, you can also take a special walk here. Many scenes from the film "La vita è bella" were shot here and you can also find them in the city. You can relive a "Buongiorno principessa" or "Maria, le chiave" here.

  • IL GIARDINO DEI TAROCCHI Among the olive trees and ocher fields, Niki de Saint Phalle's ceramic samples are like a psychedelic bomb that exploded in the rural landscape of Tuscany. This is a unique, wondrous, esoteric garden inspired by the game of tarot cards. The Tarot Garden is a unique place, which is definitely worth a visit if you are looking for a bit of magic.

  • ALBINIA is the coastal city where the Maremman forests grow down to the white beach by the sea. Where you can visit the Orbetello Oasis and observe thousands of birds up close, including ducks, herons, geese, cranes, flamingos, lapwings, waders, birds of prey and many songbirds. And from where you can drive through the sea to the mini peninsula of Monte Argentario, on which the luxury port of Porto San Stefano is located.

  • TARQUINIA offers a perfect mix of different historical eras, here you experience a journey through time. The historic center of Tarquinia is a small medieval jewel surrounded by walls and towers. Walking through the streets of the village you will come across Romanesque churches, fifteenth century palaces, ancient wells and historic buildings with breathtaking views. The Etruscan Necropolis is by far the most important in this region and has approximately 6,000 tombs, the oldest of which date from the 7th century BC. Among these there are about 200 that contain a series of frescoes.

  • GIARDINO DI DANIEL SPOERRI it is an art park of 16 hectares with a route that unravels through large meadows and forests with a seemingly random pattern; the contemporary works of art are arranged in random order and integrate and camouflage themselves into the landscape. In addition to the sculptural route, there is also a botanical route in which many plants are marked with a label highlighting their species and curiosities.

  • THE WATERFALLS OF MARMORE The creation of the waterfall dates back to 271 BC. It is a formidable work of Roman engineering that served to facilitate the flow of the waters of the Velino, responsible for frequent and disastrous floods and the transformation of vast areas of land into unhealthy swamps. In the following periods and up to the Renaissance, further improvement works were carried out up to the current structure. With a controlled flow, it is the highest artificial waterfall in Europe and one of the highest in the world, with a total height difference of 165 m over three jumps. Within the tourist walking area it is possible to follow 6 marked trails that allow the visitor to observe the waterfall from different panoramic points of view.
