Villa Farinella has been in your host's family for a few generations - and out the window you'll see the fields which are part of the estate. Your hosts are the delightful Rita - who was born in the bedroom we occupied, and her charming son Maurizio - both of whom speak English, and Rita also speaks French. We loved everything about this place - easy to find on a suburban street - but once you drive through the gate, you realize you are in a special villa with grounds all around it. The interiors are uniquely decorated and you have 2 large living rooms to use while you are there - furnished with all kinds of interesting books, magazines, photos of Marurizio's grandmother as a young woman. Our 13 yr old daughter loved playing with the alabaster Chinese Checkers set.
We stayed in the biggest room - which has a wide super comfortable bed, and a single bed for our daughter. Big, airy, filled with period furniture (of maybe the 1930s), wonderful tile floor, and breathtaking vaulted ceiling painted elaborately in shades of pink. This came with spacious bathroom, good shower, everything worked well.
Wish we had more than one night here - but had a flight to catch the next day. Nearby attractions were a wonderful renaissance garden at Bagnaia (at the Cardinal's Summer home) and the medieval walled town of Viterbo - we drove into the middle of town in the evening, parked there, had wonderful pizza outddors in a piazza, and walked around admiring the architecture. Maurizio had supplied us with a town map and showed us where the most interesting walk would be.
Would totally recommend this B&B, and the price is right too.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The B&B Farinella, established since 1999, found its aim in bringing new life and preserve to abandon a wonderful country house whose structure kept wearing down rapidly. We made the decision to restore and then open it to guests, up to six, who prefers to stay in a proper and fascinating old country house. Our hospitality is way far different from the classical hotel one: we bring more familiarity as well as intimacy in our service. Inspired from and as for the classic Irish B&B, you can enjoy a different and more characteristic atmosphere: you'll never wake up at the noises of traffic, more likely you could be awaked at birdies singing on the horse-chestnuts by the garden. ... more less
