This is not just a horse riding holiday. Although they clearly do that very well. It's also just simply a beautiful historic castle in Lazio. The location is right where Lazio, Umbria, and Tuscany meet. So, if you travel outside the property, you will certainly...More

I spent the last week in March here. A perfect base for exploring this beautiful part of Italy. Only an hours drive from Rome, the countryside dotted with beautiful old villages. You can bike, swim, play tennis and more, but for me this was a...More

About
Description
Located at the borders of Lazio, Umbria & Tuscany, one and a half hours from Rome, half way between Orvieto and Siena, the breathtakingly splendid 17th century castle, Castello di Santa Cristina, (complete with More fairytale turret) has been the property of the noble Caterini family for generations. Over the past ten years, the castle' s nearby 18th Century ivy-covered farmhouse and out-buildings have been carefully restored to retain their authenticity and separated into 8 self-catering cottages and 14 bedrooms with Bed & Breakfast for guests, furnished with original pieces, can offer you unique country holidays. A perfect location if you are looking at farmhouse holidays where you can explore the various neighboring historic towns including Orvieto, Sorano, Acquapendente and Grotte Di Castro. We offer sensational Tuscan cuisine, fantastic cooking courses and unique weddings in the castle grounds. The Castello di Santa Cristina is also an ideal place for a horse riding holiday. On our exciting trail excursions, we travel as far as Proceno, Lake Bolsena and to the beautiful nature reserve Selva Del Lamone. Riding lessons are something you should not miss when on a holiday with children. Always on the spot you find our swimming pool, the tennis court, a mini football pitch & the possibility to rent bikes. Less
