Porchiano del Monte is a small medieval hamlet perched atop a hill overlooking the Tiber Valley. On a clear day, you can see for at least 100 kilometers: Monte Amiata in Tuscany, Montefiascone near Lake Bolsena in Lazio as well as Monte Soratte near Rome.
It’s a walled town about 800 meters in diameter which makes it easy to walk around its perimeter. However what makes Porchian del Monte so special is not just the countryside and the spectacular views. It’s the way of life of its inhabitants: life just seems to go by at a much slower, liveable, human pace. It’s no wonder I’ve chosen to live & paint here.
What will strike you first is the silence all around. You can hear the wind blow in the trees, the birds singing at dawn and your neighbor walking slowly in one of the vicolo.
If you’re looking for a place to relax, walk in the countryside, have a picnic in the forest or paint the countryside, then come stay at B&B Barragan.
