Alvito, FR, Latium, Italie
A few steps from the center of the village of Alvito, for sale a beautiful detached house. Unique for its breathtaking views of the countryside, hills and snowy mountains that enhances the eyes from the front door to the windows in the attics. Fantastic the unmistakable traditional touch that marries it fully with the taste and warmth of Ciociaria, as well as its main folklore-religious events that make the street where the property is located a unique place wrapped in tradition and folklore.
The house evolves on three levels, each of which presents a wide versatility in the field of ordinary or intensive renovation, which the house needs. The entrance opens into a living room with kitchenette and a second living room immediately to the right. An extension of the living room, restoration or construction of stone arches both internally and externally could be an excellent initial solution. Continuing straight beyond the kitchen, a door allows the passage to the small inner atrium with stone cockpit and staircase leading to the upper floors, all in the wonderful view and privacy of the historic walls that surround this area.

ALVITO AND CIOCIARIA
Laughing and panoramic, at the center of the Valley of Comino, formerly “Albetum”, was a Benedictine possession (sec.X), then county with the lords of Aquino, dukedom with the Gallium. The medieval village, whose walls connect it to the Castle with its cylindrical towers, extends below the fertile valley. In fact, agriculture is still ‘the greatest economic resource of the country. Alvito has preserved a beautiful old town full of buildings and monuments of great value. Among them we mention, especially the Ducal Palace, seat of the town hall and the municipal theater (the court theater at the time of the Gallium XVI sec.). The Ciociaria is easily accessible from Rome and Naples and their airports. A day of shopping in Rome is a common pastime, while an even shorter journey takes you to the beautiful beaches south of Rome.
Alternatively, by car to the east, and the mountains of the Abruzzo National Park await you with horse trekking in the magnificent beech woods, and sparkling lakes and mountain rivers where you can bathe in the heat of summer. And at the other extreme of the temperature, even if Alvito himself is temperate, less than an hour’s drive you get to the winter ski slopes.
Often neglected, both by tourists and foreigners looking for an Italian home, in favor of the most publicized regions of Tuscany and Umbria, the Ciociaria remains largely a pristine pearl with beautiful landscapes and medieval villages on top of the hills. A house or a second home in Ciociaria, in the hilly villages of Alvito, Arpino, Veroli, Alatri or in the gentle hills that surround them, will offer you an environment where over two thousand years of history combine with an idyllic Italian rural lifestyle, where you can still discover the ‘real’ Italy and take some free time from the crowded crowd of large tourist cities, while being less than ninety minutes away from the center of Rome or one of the two airports of Rome.

The Council Room, decorated with friezes and frescoes, and the Duke’s Room are beautiful. Among the churches we remember that of S. Simeone (XVIII century) with its rich wooden ceiling and, preserved in the sacristy, a Crucifixion perhaps by Giuseppe Cesari (II Cavalier d’Arpino). But there are many other beautiful churches in Alvito. Interesting can be the visit to the ghost town “Villaggio Cortignale”, an agglomeration completely uninhabited for over 400 years.
