“A Beautiful Retreat”
Reviewed 30 July 2012

Maria and her family have created a lovely retreat overlooking the beauty of the area. It is cozy, comfortable, and clean. You are surrounded by gorgeous fruit trees and lovely sitting areas. Highly recommended for a quiet place to stay while visiting the surrounding hill towns.

podere porcino is a beautiful yard on the hills of latium. when you're dining on the green area of maria's (hostess) wonderfully arranged garden (there's extremely good smelling lavender, huge rosemary and salvia bushes, oregano, thyme and especially tenderly red poppies everywhere!), you look in the valley where castiglione lies - and in the evening, when it's dawning, this small village slowly lightens up. scenically there's so much beauty to discover. podere porcino is circled by so many old, historical villages and small towns (see civita di bagnoregio!), so if you like history you'll find your happiness for sure. if the wanderlust is taking over, just go for it: there are so many paths you can walk and enjoy all the smell of nature. but if you also need peace as i did, you can also stay in podere porcino and have a sit in the garden, take a walk through the silver olive trees (maria and gianni make their own olive oil). you also can enjoy the neighbour's sangiovese or merlot (the latter is highly recommended!). and ask for olives and cheese, you won't regret that piece of italian cuisine culture.
both flats are beautifully arranged and cosy. and for all that maria makes a good price. well, at least i really don't regret it. also if you're a traveler and not a tourist, i recommend you this place very much, because you don't see that much tourists in latium as you see them in toscana - everyone goes to toscana, but if you're someone who fancies discovering stuff on your own, then latium's a better place for you. also you can reach rome in an hour/hour and a half by train.
maria is a great hostess, she speaks both german and italian. i really enjoyed my stay for which i'm very thankful to her (she took great care of me, because as i arrived i was one huge mess).
thank you maria and gianni for the great stay!
