Frallarenza is only 6 km from Ficulle, a medieval little village known for its traditional terracotta pottery, and 15 km from Orvieto.
The Castle of Sala, built in 1350, now owned by the famous wine company Marchesi Antinori, and its old "borgo", only three km from Frallarenza, certainly deserves a visit. You can visit the reception hall designated for the tasting of their fine wines, which you can buy directly.

For the lovers of Hiking and Mountain Bike
For those who love to hike or ride a mountain bike there are many trails in the countryside, passing trough woodlands, olive grove and vineyards, even starting directly from Frallarenza without the car, of which we are pleased to give you the gps files, and of course many other informations about tracks like times, slopes, ecc.

Frallarenza is 5 km far from the entrance of Natural Riserve of Monte Rufeno and from the bordering Natural Riserve of "Selva di Meana, one of the largest woodland area (6,500 hectares) in the West central Italy, very rich in biodiversity. This area, thanks to the very few humans interventions, have kept during centuries all the beauty of an almost uncontaminated woodland ecosystem.
Along the paths of the Reserve you can meet wild boar, deers, hares, foxes, squirrels and many birds, including some species of hawk.
Nearby the medieval village of Allerona, you can visit (on request) Villa Cahen with its beautiful inside park-garden, built in 1880 in Art Nouveau style, surrounded by the beautiful woods of the "Selva di Meana".
Underneath the Torre Alfina Castle there is the "Bosco Monumentale del Sasseto", a magical and evocative place for the presence of ancient trees grown on a land full of huge lava rock masses covered with moss, transformed at the end of '800 by the Marquis Edoardo Cahen in an evocative maze of paths to serve the castle. In the middle of the dense forest the Marquis Cahen built a beautiful mausoleum in neo-Gothic style, the place of his burial.
Still close to Torre Alfina there is one of the most evocative places of the Riserva del Monte Rufeno, near the Museo del Fiore: a beautiful path through dense woods leads to the Subbissone stream mill and to the nearby brick bridge from the late 1800 that connected Torre Alfina with the nearby Acquapendente.
