Castello di Proceno
Cecilia and Giovanni Cecchini Bisoni graciously
welcome you to their ancestral home. The
Castello is a magnificent 12th century fortress
that now houses 7 well-appointed, taste-fully
furnished, comfortable apartments. Ideally
located to explore the breathtakingly beautiful
countryside of Tuscany and Umbria the Castello
provides a unique opportunity to experience the
charm and magic of Italy.

Castello di Proceno
The magical Castello di Proceno is a 12th century
hilltop fortress complete with tower and
ramparts. The Castello dominates the valley of
the Paglia River and the medieval village of
Proceno. The dramatic location enjoys stunning
views of the surrounding countryside with Mount
Amiata in the background. This unique
accommodation is located in the Lazio region
bordering Tuscany and Umbria (Tuscia) and
combines historical context, authentic ambience,
unspoilt landscapes, regional foods and wine and
congenial hosts. The family home of the Cecchini
family since the 16th century, Senori Cecilia and
Giovanni Cecchini Bisoni have done an outstanding
job restoring parts of the Castello and some of
the farmers quarters that made up part of the
village grouped around the tower. The Castello
now houses 7 taste-fully furnished, well equipped
self catering apartments all of which are in
keeping with the purest tradition featuring wood
beamed ceilings, whitewashed walls, fireplaces
and terracotta floors. Senori Cecilia and
Giovanni are delightful and are willing to extend
their hospitality to a visit of the Castello and
its grounds.

Castello di Proceno
In addition to being an avid historian with a
passion for Tuscia, a knowledgeable gardener and
a talented cook, Senora Cecilia has a flare for
interior décor and has personally chosen the
furnishings and colour schemes that so compliment
the ambience of the Castello. Many family
antiques and items of restored furniture have
been cleverly used to create a sense of warmth
and comfort. The originality of the apartments
offered is that although they all have private
access from the centre of Proceno each one is
completely independent with its own garden or
courtyard area. Each apartment is equipped with
modern amenities, a safe, a hair dryer and
individual heating payable locally on consumption
together with firewood if required. Maid and
laundry service is available, baby cots and linen
are provided on request.
