Step into the picturesque charm of Arpino, Frosinone, Lazio, Italy, a setting that is filled with a rich history and surrounded by breathtaking panoramic views. A drive of 90 minutes opens up the spectacle of Rome, while a shorter drive offers the alluring beaches south of Rome. At the same time, the Abruzzo National Park's magnificent beech forests, sparkling mountain lakes, and rivers sit quietly in the east, waiting for your exploration.

Located in this enchanting environment is a beautiful old stone house with sweeping panoramic views. Interestingly, it nestles within a cluster of houses, just a few minutes from the medieval hilltop town of Arpino, adding to the exclusivity and serenity of the location.

The stone house, christened Casa Vallefredda, is indeed a place of beauty, with its vaulted stone ceilings, open log fireplaces, a terrace, a garden courtyard, and a large terraced plot of land. All aspects curated flawlessly to cater to your comfort while also giving you the privilege of indulging in a mesmerising view of your surroundings.

Now, let's step inside. The layout includes:

- A kitchen
- A sitting room
- Three bedrooms, two on each floor
- Two stone rooms on the lowest level (one with a rustic fireplace) opening onto a small courtyard garden.

The property needs some renovation, and with the right thrust and vision, the possibility of reorganisation and modernisation is considerable. Doing so will add both character and considerable value to the property.

Upon successful renovation, the stone-vaulted room can be envisioned as a kitchen, potentially emerging as a pleasant venue for outdoor lunches, sunset drinks, and dinners with an exhilarating view of the valley.

The other vaulted room, equipped with an antique stone fireplace, is ripe for transformation into an elegant dining room. Bonus: a walk-in niche in this room, cut into the rock, can be turned into a romantic feature such as a bar or decorative wine cellar.

The main floor can be repurposed into a sitting room opening onto the large terrace, a guest bathroom, and a study. The level will also feature a utility room for practical purposes.

A large bedroom with an open fireplace, a dressing room and a bathroom can house a full master bedroom suite. Two guest bedrooms can share the top floor bathroom, which also comes with a laundry room off the stairs.

The accompanying large plot of land to Casa Vallefredda slopes from the road down the hillside. Despite it being overgrown currently, the land has been properly terraced and therefore can be transformed into a beautiful garden with olive groves. There is space to install a swimming pool on the terraces, subject to normal planning consents.

In terms of local amenities, you will find yourself well placed with excellent road access. A wide selection of shops, restaurants, cafes, and services are only a few minutes drive away.

Climate in Arpino is generally temperate. Although the winters can be quite cold, it isn't extreme, often making it quite idyllic for refugees from harsher climates. The summers are lovely and delightful, a perfect reminder of why Italy is sought after as a vacation destination.

Living in Arpino is a rare opportunity to immerse yourself in an idyllic rural Italian lifestyle, a place where you can discover the 'real' Italy and take time out from the busy crowds of the larger tourist cities. A home in Arpino is a home in the heart of Italy, an experience both charming and calming in its simplicity and pace of life.

The stone house, pending some upgrades and personal touches, has the potential to be a dream home. A haven where history, scenic beauty, and comfortable living intertwine to present you with a lifestyle you've always envisioned. So make that vision a reality today and step into a life of serenity laced with a touch of Italian charm. The Casa Vallefredda awaits you.
