Agriturismo Casale Le Crete lies 1 km from Acquapendente, a medieval village in the province of Viterbo, in northern Lazio, along the Via Francigena, close to Tuscany and Umbria borders. Tradition has it that the crypt of the cathedral, built around the year 1000, holds a relic bathed in the blood of Christ. Just a short walk away, the Riserva Naturale di Monte Rufeno is a great destination for hiking, horseback riding or biking. The region is renowned for the architectural beauty of its many medieval hamlets such as Torre Alfina, Trevinano, and San Casciano dei Bagni, with their imposing castles, and for its thermal waters. Within minutes you can reach Lake Bolsena, the largest volcanic lake in Europe, with its charming eponymous town and bathing beaches. The lake boasts two beautiful islands, Bisentina and Martana, connected by a boat service. Montefiascone, a popular culinary stop, owes its fame to its history and the production and trade of wine and extra virgin olive oil. The facility’s location is excellent for exploring Orvieto with its magnificent cathedral and maze of caves carved into the tuff over some 2,500 years, and Viterbo, papal seat in the second half of the thirteenth century with its marvelous palace, the medieval quarters of San Pellegrino and Pianoscarano, beautiful fountains and Romanesque churches, not to mention the many spas and free sulfur springs, including the Bullicame spring, mentioned by Dante as the entrance to Inferno. At the border between Lazio and Umbria, you can admire ancient and unique villages built on layers of red volcanic tuff such as Civita di Bagnoregio, Pitigliano, Sorano, Sovana, Suana and a series of sites and necropolis dating back to Etruscan times of great archaeological, historical and naturalistic importance. Saturnia, 50 km from the Casale, is famous for its sulfurous thermal waters, already known to the Etruscans and Romans, which are accessible both in paid and free facilities thanks to the large natural pools and waterfalls. Mountain lovers will find Mount Amiata, in the provinces of Grosseto and Siena, just 35 km away, an ideal place for hiking and trekking that allows you to enjoy the beauty of the landscape.
