Villa Rossi Danielli - Viterbo - Italy
   
 

Villa Rossi Danielli, also known as Merlano, is an enchanted historical building which lies in the heart of the Viterbo countryside, an hour’s drive from Rome and close to some important Etruscan archaeological sites, the splendid Villa Lante of Bagnaia , the monster park of Bomarzo and the enchanting town of Montefiascone.
Villa Rossi Danielli stands in a seven hectare estate with a private park full of century-old olive trees, gardens abundant with a variety of flowers and a spectacular open-air swimming pool for the guests, the perfect place to immerse oneself in nature, even though the bustling city is not far away.
The farmhouse next to Villa Rossi Danielli (Merlano) dates back to the 1600s and has always belonged to the Catalano Rossi Danielli family. The owners organise cookery courses for groups of at least six people throughout the year, using the produce from the estate including the excellent Merlano D.O.P:extra-virgin olive oil. It is also possible to book naturalistic, archaeological and wine and food itineraries in the nearby local tourist locations. The services of chefs, masseurs and personal trainers are also available.
The old country house “Villa Rossi Danielli ”, is today a refined Relais which has undergone a tasteful and elegant restoration respecting the original structure and materials. This skilful restoration has created 5 bedrooms, 2 of which are suites. The rooms have every comfort and are elegantly designed with antique furniture and have furnishings and ornaments which were personally chosen by the owner, mostly from Paris.
