Domus Civita, Lazio

Built into the cliffside in Civita di Bagnoregio, an ancient hill town 90 minutes from Rome that can be accessed only by footbridge, Domus Civita is architect and interior designer Patrizio Fradiani’s new three-bedroom vacation villa, which is available for rent. After an almost-yearlong gut rehab, the stylish furniture and modern art installations complement the clay rooftops, climbing ivy and cobblestone streets visible through flung-open windows. Down the stone steps and into a labyrinth of tufa rock and Etruscan caves is the wine cellar, built into a 2,000-year-old water cistern. The 400 bottles, most produced within a 50-mile radius, look like art themselves, horizontally suspended from the wall. The sprawling garden terrace overlooks the immensity of the Tiber River valley; a pool is carved into one of the two ancient caves. In the other is an outdoor kitchen, where bottles of Prosecco and Frascati are kept cool. Sleeps eight; from $2,950 per week;—Meghan McEwen
