Set in the Lazio countryside, Castello Santa Cristina is surrounded by a large green garden with swimming pool and tennis court. This property produces its own spelt and lentils, and organises horse riding excursions. In a building right below the 17th-century castle, rustic-style rooms and apartments overlook the garden and come with antique furnishings and a private bathroom with free toiletries. Apartments include a living area with satellite flat-screen TV, fireplace and kitchen. An Italian-style buffet breakfast is served daily in a dedicated room or out in the open during summer. The restaurant is open every day upon reservation, and specialises in typical local cuisine. Bikes can be rented out at the Santa Cristina, which is 2.5 miles from the centre of Grotte di Castro. You can reach Lake Bolsena in 15 minutes by car while Orvieto is 21.1 miles away.
