Rome & Lazio

It goes without saying that centre stage in Lazio is the Eternal City that is Rome itself, where between the months of April and October the whole of the historic centre becomes one large piazza for strolling, watching and immersing yourself in all the glory that surrounds you. Those lucky enough to be there during this time revel in the city's great sense of theatre, its spectacular sunsets that turn its church towers, stone walls and ancient domes into a lambent gold and its embarrassment of panoramic delights that intoxicate you with a great sense of romance. And yet the city wears its two and a half millennia of history with a remarkable sense of insouciance. Unlike some of Europe's other great romantic cities Rome has no need to primp itself into packages in a way that Paris might. It's this swagger and nonchalance that makes Rome so profoundly atmospheric and so pleasantly intoxicating.

Lazio borders Tuscany and Umbria, but, of course, apart from in Rome itself there are fewer tourists and sometimes considerably lower prices. It is a region that is still waiting to be discovered. Stay at Podere due Pretti, close to the Tuscan border and discover a verdant landscape of chestnut woods and hay fields, with plenty around you to explore and discover such as the village of Castello di Proceno whose ramparts adorn the rugged escarpment that overlooks a devastatingly beautiful landscape. Further south in the quiet village of Oliveto Villa Coemese and Palazzo Parisi overlook a spectacular landscape of mountains and forests, there's tennis in the village, a clutch of delicious local restaurants and easy access to Rome itself, an hour or so to the South.
