PALAZZINA RAFFINATA

In Italian, Palazzina Raffinata means "refined small palace", and this wonderful vacation home definitely lives up to its name. Palazzina Raffinata is a spacious and prestigious two-floor, two-bedroom residence stylishly furnished with an appealing combination of antique and modern Italian furniture. It consists of:

** Two large bedrooms and two modern bathrooms, sleeping up to four guests

** A spacious double living room

** A library/study/media room

** A unique dining room carved centuries ago into the volcanic bedrock stone (called "peperino") that lies under Bassano and much of northern Lazio

** An impressive chef's kitchen with a wood-burning pizza oven

** A dramatic centuries-old cantina/wine cellar carved deep into the peperino bedrock

PALAZZO ANDREUZZI

Palazzina Raffinata is one of five luxury vacation residences in Palazzo Andreuzzi, a 16th-century villa in Bassano’s historic borgo - the Italian word for a small medieval village - that dates from the 11th-century. Palazzo Andreuzzi was once the personal residence of Count Andreuzzi, Bassano's most noble citizen of the period and owner of most of the rich agricultural land located on the Tiber River floodplain below the town.

During the summer season, Palazzo Andreuzzi's owners and guests have exclusive access to a large private swimming pool providing barbecue facilities and stunning panoramic views of central Italy that stretch across the Tiber River valley and the green hills of Umbria all the way to the Gran Sasso peaks of the Apennine Mountains in Abruzzo almost 60 miles away.

In addition to its five luxury vacation residences, Palazzo Andreuzzi hosts Osteria Belvedere, one of the finest gourmet restaurants in central Italy with a 4.9 rating from G (oogle) and a 4.8 rating from TripAdvisor. Osteria Belvedere's creative menu featuring locally-source ingredients is perfectly complemented by the warmth and intimacy of its small but elegant dining room. As a special treat, if you would like to enjoy a quiet professionally-prepared meal at home with your family or when entertaining guests, Simone, Osteria Belvedere's proprietor and chef, will be happy to serve his full menu to you in Palazzina Raffinata's own dining room. Now that's what you call personalized service!

Of particular interest to art lovers, immediately next door to Palazzo Andreuzzi is Bassano's other grand villa, the Palazzo Twombly. During the late 20th century, this villa was the summer residence of the famous American artist, Cy Twombly, where he spent three decades creating some of his most important paintings.

BASSANO IN TEVERINA

Perched high on a forested ridge in the Cimini Mountains, Bassano in Teverina soars above the vast and historic Tiber River Valley. On a clear day, the often snow-capped peaks of the famous Gran Sasso mountains in Abruzzo, more than 60 miles to the east, stand proudly on the horizon. After the sun goes down, brightly-lit medieval hill towns on the Umbrian side of the Tiber seem to float in the night sky like a dozen Italian Brigadoons.

Bassano is part of the Italian region known as Tuscia, an extensive part of central Italy between the Tiber River and the Mediterranean Sea. Here, the legendary Etruscan culture reigned supreme for many centuries before finally being conquered by the Romans. Tuscia includes all of Tuscany and most of Umbria and northern Lazio. Tuscany is called Toscana in Italian, which is derived from the Latin word Tuscanus meaning "of the Tusci (Etruscans)".

Infused with its own 3,000-year history, Bassano is a destination unto itself. There is much to explore in and around Bassano, by foot, bicycle or car, from its famous Double Tower, a 12th-century tower hidden inside a 16th century tower until it was accidentally rediscovered in 1996, to the beautiful and profoundly spiritual Church of Santa Maria dei Lumi, which hosts a series of musical concerts every summer, to the mysterious Etruscan ruins hidden in the woods and hills surrounding the town.

Of particular note is the legendary Lago Vadimone, mentioned 2,000 years ago by Pliny the Younger as a sacred place with floating islands. The Etruscans performed rituals and celebrations on its shores, and the Romans immersed their weapons in its waters to make them invincible. Lago Vadimone is also the site of the last battle between the Etruscans and the Romans where the victorious Romans finally claimed dominion over the Etruscan empire. Lago Vadimone still exists, although it is much smaller now, and it is an enjoyable 3-hour round-trip hike from the front door of Palazzo Andreuzzi.

Bassano also offers more than its share of great Italian food and wine. In addition to Osteria Belvedere, there are two other traditional Italian restaurants within walking distance and several dozen more excellent dining options within a 30-minute drive.

The Viterbo Province, in which Bassano is situated, is one of Italy's most under-appreciated and under-visited tourist regions. Few know, for instance, that Viterbo, the capitol city of the province and just 20 minutes from Bassano, was the birthplace of Dante or that it is called “The City of the Popes” because for several decades it was the official seat of the Catholic Church, hosting seven successive popes after the Church was driven from Rome in 1243.

In northern Lazio you will escape the hordes of tourists and discover real Italy. The Viterbo province contains a vast number of historic, cultural, and natural treasures - including Tarquinia, Bomarzo, Lago Bolsena and Monte Cimino - and some of the finest food and wine in Europe.

HISTORY OF BASSANO IN TEVERINA

The true origins of Bassano in Teverina are lost in the mists of history, but archaeologists have uncovered evidence of human settlements dating back to the Neolithic age, 8,000 years ago.

Bassano appears to be derived from Latin, suggesting that at one time the area was part of a great estate owned by a Roman family named Bassus. The name of Bassano in Teverina appears for the first time in the 11th century.

According to the legend, the wealthy Countess Matilda of Canossa, owner of many grand properties in Viterbo, donated Bassano's castle and the town to Pope Gregory VII in 1070. Thereafter, the town was always under the protection of the Church, safe from attacks by the powerful nearby towns, especially Orte.

More recently, during the Second World War, Bassano in Teverina was severely damaged by a tremendous explosion on November, 1943, when a German munitions train that was parked at the station below the town blew up with such force that it destroyed many of the roofs and walls of the homes on the eastern side of the town's borgo. The stunned residents were forced to abandon their homes, and that part of the town remained uninhabitable for more than 40 years.

In the 1980s, the town began a slow rebirth thanks to a wealthy local businessman, a strong mayor, and an enlightened town council. Since then, more than 30 houses and many public spaces in the borgo have been restored.

HISTORY OF BASSANO IN TEVERINA

The true origins of Bassano in Teverina are lost in the mists of history. It has been inhabited at least since the time of the Etruscans and probably long before that.
