FRANCISCAN CONVENT FOR SALE ONE HOUR FROM ROME, LAZIO


Located in a panoramic position at the border of a characteristic medieval hamlet in the province of Frosinone14th-century stone monastery. The building (1,000 sqm) is partially restored and is mainly used as a location for events, but with a few works the whole structure could be converted into a boutique hotel with 10+ bedrooms.

The medieval hamlet offers all the necessary services (supermarkets, pharmacies, post office) and allows quickly reaching several cities of Lazio, both towards the hinterland and towards the sea (Frosinone, Cassino, Terracina, Sperlonga, Formia, San Felice Circeo, Rome…). Even Naples is less than two hours away.

The closest airports are Rome Ciampino and Fiumicino (1h 10’), but Naples can easily be reached in roughly 1h 30’.


DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS


The convent (roughly 1,000 sqm in total) is leaned against St. Francis’s Church, no longer consecrated and owned by the municipality. The building is covered in beautiful frescoes from different centuries and is nowadays an art gallery and museum.

The convent itself encloses the beautiful central cloister and offers several halls (ideal for events), 10 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. Restoring the remaining portion of the building would allow converting more rooms into bedrooms to increase the hosting capability of the complex.

 

The convent was built in 1337 by the Franciscan monks on a plot of land donated to the friars by several noblemen of the town. The order kept possession of the monastery until 1927, when the property was ultimately abandoned and passed into private hands. The church was then transferred by the owning family to the municipality in the 1970s.

 

The building has been partially restored and still boasts all the typical features commonly found in medieval monasteries (among which original terracotta floors, wooden beams, coffered ceilings, stone fireplaces…). The finishes have been carefully preserved and, where needed, original material have been used as a replacement. The ample halls are covered with beautiful coffered ceilings, while the floors are tiled with terracotta bricks, original as well.

Those rooms in need of a restoration have been left in their original state: this means the finishes are still present and visible and only need to be cleaned and recovered to bring the building back to its original splendor.

The entryway to the monastery is highlighted by a vaulted archway bearing the emblem of the Friars Minor. Proceeding inside one ends up in the unique portico encircling the cloister and through a series of rooms one can finally reach the panoramic terraced garden located on the other side of the building.

 

The external walls are worth a quick analysis since they are made out of stone and double as ramparts for the medieval town and the convent ended up being built right over one of the doors granting access to the city. A watchtower, nowadays embedded in the monastery, is well-visible to the left of the doorway. 


EXTERIORS

As for all the convents, the building boasts a beautiful internal cloister, nowadays decorated with a peculiar Italian garden (150 sqm) and surrounded by a beautiful covered loggia with vaulted ceilings. Right below the cloister is located a rainwater cistern which has been recently restored.

Outside on both sides, on the other hand, the convent features two more panoramic gardens. The first and amplest of the two (1,300 sqm) is located to the left of the building and comes in the form of an Italian garden, well-maintained and crossed by paved walkways. This garden is the perfect frame for outdoor events, such as weddings and conferences. A small shed (15 sqm) is used as a storage room.

The second one (300 sqm), reached via a peculiar hallway located above the entrance archway to the medieval town, is smaller and is landscaped as a shaded garden, ideal to relax in summer days.


USE AND POTENTIAL USES


The monastery, thanks to its ample halls and the beautiful decorations, is occasionally used as a location for events and ceremonies. The complete restoration of the complex would easily allow converting it into a boutique hotel, while at the same time keeping the door open to host events, conferences and ceremonies.
