Casperia apartment description

Located just outside of Rome, in the well-preserved medieval village of Casperia (Casperia prohibits automobiles, so it has retained it's medieval character and is quiet and safe to wander about), il Sogno is within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. It's Sub-Floor Heating system keeps il Sogno warm in Winter and the two-foot thick walls and Casperia's 400 metre elevation keep il Sogno comfortably cool in the warmer months.
A Swimming/Tennis Club is located 2 kilometres from Casperia. Guests at il Sogno may join the club for a nominal fee. Cooking lessons may be arranged at a local agriturismo (ask the owner). Casperia is located near a Commuter Rail line to Rome, so that il Sogno's guests can easily enjoy the wonders of that magnificent city and return to the beauty and peaceful serenity that is Casperia. Northern Lazio and much of Southern Tuscany and Umbria is within easy Day Trip reach.


The Apartment: Il Sogno, a recently-restored apartment in the heart of Casperia's centro storico, offers guests the opportunity to share in the delights of Casperia and its strategic location in a relaxed setting as ancient and elegant as Casperia itself. Although tastefully furnished with antique furniture and wonderful Persian carpets, in keeping with its ancient roots, il Sogno was designed with comfort in mind, including a well-appointed kitchen, separate dining and living areas, a large, modern full bath on the main level and a half bath below, and two double bedrooms, one carved out of the living rock, on which Casperia is built, the other boasting a fireplace and a wonderful view over the Sabina mountains. In clement weather, guests can enjoy a glass of wine and a bit of cheese outside on the adjacent terrazza, shaded by a pergola covered by a 150+ year old grapevine, taking in sights and scents of the newly-restored garden, planted with antique roses, lavender, rosemary and plumbago.

              Resting on a hilltop on the edge of the Sabina Mountains, in the Province of Reiti, in Lazio, the medieval village of Casperia strikes many perfect balances. Less than an hour north of the wonders and bustle of Rome, Casperia combines easy access to the Eternal City with it's own quiet serenity. One of the few towns in Europe prohibiting automobiles from it's centro storico, or historical center, Casperia retains the authentic charm of its ancient heritage in an enchanting setting so close to Rome that many of its residents commute to work there daily. Casperia is well situated for easy day-trips into Rome and northern Lazio as well as much of Umbria and southern Tuscany.

              Other Activities: Day trip to Rome, then return to the historic serenity of Casperia and il Sogno
