Why Christian chose Manzania
I just wanted to challenge myself experimenting to use the skills and the experience I have achieved during my life working for big companies such as Walt Disney World Co., Sheraton etc. to see if they would work on my 'petit' property. I believe I can let my guests having a relaxing chill out among cultural environment and in a famous area full of natural spas (Stigliano spa facility is only 10 mins. drive away), and Etruscan and Roman vestiges (Cerveteri Necropolis). Even though I am a discreet host I might be always present to help my guests when they need suggestions and hints. In case you are afraid to get lost driving around, I may lend you my Garmin and suggest you wonderful places to be seen.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The apartment is at the ground floor of a private property, the parking is inside, the area is very safe, due to the vicinity of the local police station located at the cross road down the street. The presence of sulfuric springs and mines is indicated to people with asthma and Roman spas vestiges. The bus stop to Rome and to Bracciano stops down the street, at 150 yds away from the property. The train to Rome, that takes about 1.20 hr/45 mins, is 1000 yds away with wide free and safe parking lot. Train tickets to Rome cost €3.00 each way and by reaching Rome "Valle Aurelia Station", as gateaway to all Rome amenities trough Metro A inter-connection. Valle Aurelia Station is just two stops away from S.Peter Metro Station an 10 Mis. from Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Steps). The sea side is 25 mins. drive: Santa Severa, with its wonderful fairy castle upon the cliffs, as well as the one in Santa Marinella, near by, where you can surf, kiting, windsurfing, snorkeling. On the way back you can stop by one of the many natural spa facilities (La Ficoncella, Stigliano) and have a energizing hot bath. Also Bracciano lake shore is very close to the property: less than 10 mins. drive (is reachable by bus too). Also on Bracciano Lake is possible to windsurf (only experts), diving and snorkeling, canoeing, kayaking (there are rental facilities). If you like history, you may find interesting visiting Monterano Ruins, in Canale Monterano, a ghost city destroyed by the Napoleonic French Army invading Rome in 1779, with its stunning ruins of the Bernini's Altieri Palace and fountains. At evening, after a meal in the garden, you may stargazing the moon while chilling out in the hot jacuzzi or participating at the many town Patronal Festivals in the vicinity, watching fireworks shows and contests by the lake shore or while dining on the lake cruise boat deck, either in one of the many restaurants and trattorie where you can tasting local wine and the Central Italian typical cuisine.
