Property Description
Le Terrae, with its spaciousness and grand location, provides a quiet and luxurious respite from busy travel, while remaining superbly connected to points of interest. Whether you are interested in the art cities or medieval hilltowns, in Roman or Etruscan archaeological sites, in the art of the Renaissance, or in the dramatic and lush volcanic landscapes, hot springs and lakes of the Tuscia region, you can use Villa Le Terrae as a base for your explorations.

The villa, near the hill town of Orte, is surrounded by vineyards, oak forests, and sunflower fields bordering Umbria and Lazio.
In the territory of the ancient Etruscans: within half an hour to one hour distance from Rome, Spoleto, Orvieto, Assisi, Perugia, Todi, Viterbo, Civita di Bagnoregio, Tarquinia, Bolsena, and Vico lakes, and just two hours from Florence.

Completely private, with no other houses or buildings on its grounds, the villa boasts proud views of the surrounding hillsides and neighboring towns.
Le Terrae is nested high on the side of a declivity, and the view opens down towards system of valleys and creeks. This territory is part of the protected natural environment and watershed of the Tiber Valley, which eventually converges at the Tiber River,about 3 km away. The view is unobstructed, and you can see the lush vegetation and the dramatic tufo walls of the archaeological area of Palazzolo in the foreground.

The sunsets are spectacular, and the vivid reds and oranges sharply contrast with the deep greens of the valley, cutting the profiles of Montefiascone, the Cimino Mountain and Mount Amiata against the bright sky above of the Tyrrhenian Sea, in the distance.
