A lake, mountains and an area steeped in history: Maria – the current owner - has transformed her grandfather Giuseppe’s traditional farming estate and created the Farm holidays "Tenuta La Vita". The location is Tuscia, the lake is Lake Vico, the mountains are the Cimini and the name of the estate comes from a little spring that gurgles in an orchard of fruit trees, hazelnut trees and chestnut trees, in the middle of a Nature Reserve.
The hazelnuts and the chestnuts from these trees have been the key ingredient in the delicious pastries, cakes and desserts created by the pastry maker at the Tenuta La Vita for the past 15 years. They may be tasted in the restaurant "I Sapori della Vita", which has a cosy open fireplace and elegant reception and banquet rooms with a superb, adjoining gazebo.
The "Tenuta La Vita" is the ideal venue for events, whether it is a birthday party, a wedding reception or a business convention. The Tenuta can provide you with the perfect setting, excellent food and drink and professional staff to serve these. We are happy to cater for out-of-the-ordinary requirements, too. No request is too complicated. Success, after all, is synonymous with every detail being perfect.
Ten bedrooms accommodate the guests in the restored "Casale del Nonno" and the old "Casa Padronale", both furnished with antiques. When the farm holidays was restored, much care was taken to provide the rooms with all the comforts guests would need during their stay: every room is equipped with an en-suite bathroom, TV, mini-bar, hairdryer and air-conditioning. Tenuta La Vita can accommodate up to 28 guests and each bedroom, furnished with antique furniture, is welcoming and has its own special character. The views of the large garden with great, old trees contribute to create the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.
Breakfast is based on Umbrian products and is served in the garden or in the large restaurant room, depending on the season. With its warm, welcoming atmosphere, the "Tenuta La Vita" is the ideal place for a relaxing weekend, a holiday in the countryside or simply a break from the stress of daily life. The Lake Vico Nature Reserve provides an atmospheric and revitalizing backdrop.
What was once a barn is now a Spa, complete with a double jacuzzi and a wellness centre where a range of beauty treatments and massages is available and yoga, meditation and Tai Chi may be practised. Promotional offers and wellbeing packages are available on request. We have created an exclusive range of beauty products, made to harness the beneficial characteristics of hazelnuts and other high-quality ingredients indigenous to the Lake Vico area. Long used in cosmetics, hazelnuts have well-known properties that hydrate and invigorate the skin. They have remarkable toning effects and are particularly suited to massage.
