The Country House Giulia di Gallese sits in the typical rolling Italian countryside north of Rome, along the Tiber valley near Viterbo.
A strategic site once chosen by ancient monks to build a convent.
There are still traces of the old walls plus a deconsecrated 16th Century church surrounded by picturesque arches from the old cloister at the Country House Giulia di Gallese. There are some old pre-Roman caves on the property.
Surrounded by lawns, flowers and trees, the Country House Giulia di Gallese offers its guests a fine view across the valley to the old medieval town of Gallese and across the countryside, with the majestic Monte Soratte, the Cimini mountains and the Appenines on the horizon.
The former church has been restructured to offer the perfect space for seminars, workshops and various meetings. The Country House Giulia di Gallese has seven comfortable bedrooms, all with en-suite bathroom and air-conditioning, plus two apartments with views across the countryside and the hill-top town of Gallese, just a few minutes away by car or on foot. The town is dominated by the Duke’s Palace, designed by Sangallo, and is enclosed within solid high walls, with a myriad of alleys and narrow streets within just waiting to be explored.
The Country House Giulia di Gallese also has a new open-air swimming-pool, framed by lawns, roses and olive-trees (summer months only).
The perfect place for those looking for Nature and Wellbeing. Perfect also as the setting for research and study. The ideal base for trips to Rome, Viterbo, Umbria, Lake Bolsena and the amazingly unspoilt countryside and sweet old towns in the area, known locally as "Tuscia", reflecting its Etruscan roots.
