Il Podere di Marfisa: a magnificent family structure
Il Podere di Marfisa extends over 20 hectares in a splendid setting on the border of Tuscany and Lazio in the Tuscia Viterbese at 380 metres above sea level. From its gentle hillsides you can see the Tyrrhenian Sea and feel the sea breeze, and be captivated by the lush green of the countryside between Farnese and Ischia di Castro.
Immersed in an oasis of peace and tranquillity, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, guests of Il Podere di Marfisa can experience a sensory experience of wellness and relaxation.
Far from city noise, smog and everyday stress Il Podere di Marfisa is the ideal place to rediscover the perfect balance of body and mind. Here our guests can appreciate the tranquillity of silence, savour the genuineness of zero-kilometre products, relieve stress by relaxing in the wellness centre, stroll through the estate and vineyards and breathe in the pure air, now so rare in large cities.
Il Podere di Marfisa is also the perfect place for wine lovers to learn about, taste and buy the products from the Terre di Marfisa vineyard. All interested guests can be accompanied through the cellars and vineyards on a tour dedicated to the senses of smell, taste and even sight.
In summer Il Podere di Marfisa is able to offer even more to its guests. You can enjoy the outdoor areas of the estate, take trips, and participate in sports and bike tours in the territory of Farnese and surroundings.
Those who want to relax can sunbathe and swim in the outdoor pool for a regenerating day, and can continue to enjoy the outdoor spaces of Il Podere with an aperitif by the pool or a meal on the patio of the Osteria Unicorno
The Terre di Marfisa logo was inspired by the coat of arms of the Farnese family, in particular by the figure of Giulia Farnese (1475-1524). She was the sister of Alessandro Farnese, who became pope Paolo III. Giulia often used the unicorn in her palaces; it is the symbol of wisdom and purity, strength and loyalty. A coat of arms portraying a unicorn can be seen in the Farnese Fortress and, more notably, in the frescoes in the Palazzo Farnese in Carbognano (Viterbo).
