Situated in the magnificent countryside of Rieti, overlooking the spellbinding panorama offered by the valley of the Velino river, with a backdrop of rugged mountains, the Relais Villa D'Assio is set on a recently renovated, ancient 19th century village. Not far away from Rome, and nearby a number of charming towns and villages, the hotel is surrounded by parks and located in an enviable elevated position, with magnificent extensive views of the grounds an the Piediluco Lake. Soft grey stone walls were rediscovered from the original buildings, to maintain a perfect harmony with the surroundings, and to enhance the romantic and relaxing atmosphere felt throughout. Traditional yet modern, bright guestrooms, equipped with a handful of modern facilities, and elegantly decorated with handmade tiles, dark wood floors and whitewashed walls, ensure guests a comfortable and unforgettable stay. In the evenings, dream the night away in the comfortable lounges or enjoy a mouth watering meal in the Tempe restaurant, based on local specialities made of genuine local ingredients, prepared in a inventive, imaginative way.
The hotel is located within short driving distance from worth visiting places such as Lago Lungo and Lago di Ripasottile, the Cascate delle Marmore, and il Cammino de Francesco (the San Francesco Path). The Cascate delle Marmore is a testament to Roman engineering, forms a landscape of rare and suggesting beauty, that represents an escape from urban scenery. People explore the area in search of unexplored corners or previously unseen views. Lago Lungo and Lago di Ripasottile are natural reserves, havens for sport fishing. Not distant from the natural reserve is situated a complex of religious installations known as the "Holy Valley", including the sanctuaries of Greccio, Forest, San Giacomo, and Source Columbus.
