On the border of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio, in a strategic location, halfway between Rome and Siena, you will find a fascinating region that has beautiful natural surroundings, is rich in history and mystery. The Castle of Santa Cristina will offer a natural base for exploring this beautiful land in many ways. "Adventure, history and nature" is our motto. Ways to explore our area include: on horse, renting our mountain bikes electric or manual or by renting a boat to explore the beautiful Lake Bolsena. If sport is not for you, then just hop in your car and drive through this incredible territory. Tuscia as it is called is a land of nature and wonderful art, but it is still unknown and untouched. You can explore the territory in a very relaxing way and definitely without feeling like a typical tourist. A definite destination is a visit to Civita: the dying town. Just like an island connected to the main land by a long bridge Civita is holding on to a hill of volcanic rock that is slowly collapsing through erosion. This incredible town has remained frozen in time since the middle ages with its churches and buildings. Next stop of course Orvieto and its famous Duomo only a few kilometres away.

Within 40 km you will discover archaeological sites of the Etruscan culture (pre-Roman), admire the wonderful palaces of the Italian Renaissance that Farnese family left in each town of the area, visit castles, or decide to relax in nearby thermal baths. The sea is only 45 min away by car with beautiful Capalbio Beach, while Lake Bolsena only 9 km away from our castle offers many lovely spots for a swim and possibilities for holiday memories. The following destinations are within a 30 minute drive; Pitigliano, Sorano, Sovana, Civita di Bagnoreggio, Tuscania, Lake Bolsena, Acquapendente, Orvieto. The following destinations are within an hour’s drive; Viterbo, Bomarzo, Vico Lake, Vulci, Tarquinia, Capalbio, Pienza, Saturnia Spa. Rome is 1hour and 45 min. away Siena is 1 hour and 15min. away Firenze is 2 hours and 30 min. away
