Cultivating a new love for the earth.
Nestled in the hills of Tuscia, Pulicaro is a magical place of history and untouched nature between Orvieto and Lake Bolsena, set in the middle of Alfina Plateau, on the border of Umbria and Tuscany.
Pulicaro’s antique stone farmhouse, which has been authentically (and recently) restored, dates back to the time of Barbarossa, when the tower you see today served as a lookout post in this predominantly agricultural area.
The current structure, very closely mirrors how you’d have seen it in the 1800’s, when the farmhouse and property were used as an agricultural estate.
Pulicaro offers B&B style apartments and rooms and, in total, can accommodate up to 25 people. The farmhouse is connected to an organic family farm (30 hectares) which organically raises small livestock and grows organic vegetables.
In fact, many guests enjoy experiencing our Farm to Table program, where you can participate in the agricultural life. Visit our teaching farm, gather seasonal vegetables, learn how to transform ingredients into delicious recipes, and cap it all off by enjoying a full course dinner, served in our cozy dining room with a fireplace.
Pulicaro is an environmentally-conscious farm, dedicated to organic and sustainable practices. We minimize environmental footprint by using renewable energy sources. Solar panels generate electricity for the farm and the farmhouse. Firewood and a small thermo-solar power system provide hot water and heating. The fact that we don’t have a pool is an intentional ecological choice.
Our agritourism is easily reachable from Rome, far from the noise and confusion of the city, but very close to many special and unique points of interest such as: Orvieto, Lake Bolsena, Civita di Bagnoregio, Acquapendente, Viterbo, Assisi, Pienza, Siena, and Val d’Orcia (the central hot springs of San Casciano dei Bagni, Bagni San Filippo, Bagno Vignoni, and Saturnia). Come and discover our “Snow White fairy tale” Sasseto Forest in the nearby Nature Reserve of Mount Rufeno.
Marco and Chiara are ready to welcome you into the cozy home they have created in the hills of Tuscia!
Set in the heart of a 60-acre farm, Pulicaro’s farmhouse has traditional two-person rooms with private baths, as well as mini-apartments with kitchenettes, which sleep from two to seven people. As a bed-and-breakfast, we serve homemade breakfast in your room or in the high-ceiling former stable breakfast room. In total, we can lodge 25 people.
Each room is cozy and thoughtfully furnished, with independent access and a private bathroom.
Guests can also relax in the spacious common rooms (the fireplace room and the old stable) and in the expansive garden. The garden is especially enchanting during the summer months with its remarkable variety of flowers and plants as well as the shade of the majestic, centuries-old mulberry tree.
During the spring and the summer, guests can harvest fresh vegetables right from our garden. And, for the little ones, we hold guided tours to meet the animals.
To ensure you get a good night’s sleep, every bed frame has horizontal wooden slats (for optimum support) and a comfortable ergonomic mattress. Each accommodation has its own heating system. Towels, toiletries, and a hairdryer are provided in each bathroom. Smoking is not allowed inside the rooms.
In an effort to remain faithful to our environmental philosophy, we don’t have a swimming-pool. However, those who would like a refreshing dip outside can make the short trip to Lake Bolsena, or are welcome as our guests to visit the recreation center’s swimming pool, just a few minutes away from the farm.
