Palombara Sabina villa description

Villa La Tartaruga Sabina offers more than a simple vacation. It offers a unique experience: the best of the countryside, the city and the Italian tradition in one location: convenient railway links and easy auto routes to ROME make it possible to combine the rustic tranquility of a magical landscape with the excitement of the Eternal City.

The family who owns the Villa has always nurtured and shared the pleasure of gathering with friends in the countryside for the family's most important festive occasions. It is in this tradition that the Villa was created.

WEDDING PACKAGES: the Villa organizes wedding receptions and offers wedding packages for those looking for a special wedding overseas.

COOKING SCHOOL / CULINARY VACATIONS: starting in 2015, the Villa will offer cooking school/culinary vacation packages for most of the year, which will include daily meals, professional cooking classes, food-related excursions etc.

CATERED MEALS & PIZZA EVENTS: Catered meals can be arranged upon request. The Villa also organizes pizza events, with a pizza chef cooking pizzas in the Villa's outdoor wood-fired oven.

EXTRA BEDS: 5-6 extra beds can be added in the Villa + 30-40 beds available at next door Agriturismo.

Villa La Tartaruga Sabina is a rare find!

For further details, please visit the Villa’s website: www.latartarugasabina.com or contact the owner.

VILLA GARDEN: Villa La Tartaruga Sabina is situated in a lush 2-hectare garden surrounded by hundred-year-old olive groves, cypresses, cedars, orange, cherry, and lemon trees as well as a wide range of flowers. Outside the fenced garden, there are 24 hectares of open field.
There is a covered terrace with several tables, chairs, and seating arrangements with couches. Within the landscaped garden is a gazebo with a table and chairs as well as a barbecue and wood-burning oven. There is a large swimming pool (20m x 10m) and private pool house with showers and a sauna. The pool is FENCED (photos were taking prior to fencing it).

Access to the villa is via a paved road three kilometers from the main road of Salaria and parking is available within the property grounds.

INTERIORS (800m2): The interior provides an atmosphere of art, culture, and appreciation for the finest that modern design has to offer, both stimulating the intellect and giving pause to reflect and relax in an environment made warm by the richness and elegance of its design details. The spacious living room has couches, a fireplace, satellite TV, and floor-to-ceiling glass windows that look onto the gardens. There is a separate dining room and the kitchen is equipped with a cook-top, oven, microwave, and dishwasher. On the ground floor a beautiful windowed gallery leads to a separate suite of three bedrooms that offers direct access to the garden. Each of these three bedrooms has a 160 cm queen-sized bed and an en-suite bathroom with a sink, toilet, and shower (one bathroom with shower & tub).
A beautiful wooden staircase of 12 steps leads to five comfortable bedrooms. All bedrooms are air conditioned.

In the Winter of 2015, the villa will be upgraded and we'll be offering cooking school/culinary vacation packages for most of the year, which will include daily meals, professional cooking classes, food-related excursions etc. A new big kichen will be built and all the bedrooms and bathrooms will be upgraded. Ech bedroom will have its own en-suite bathroom with shower. The two bedrooms with balcony will be upgraded to a luxury level with en-suite bathroom with shower and jacuzy.

                                  PALOMBARA SABINA is a charming Medieval town, only 40 min from ROME (by car or train). Built on a hill at the foot of a beautiful mountain and surrounded by centuries-old olive oil threes and cherry trees typical of the region, Palombara has everything tourists may need: stores, restaurants, post office, hospital, etc. Of particular interest is the town's Medieval Castle.

                                  - The Villa is located in a quiet rural area only 30 minutes from ROME, by car or by train. There is a train station 3 min drive from the Villa, from where there are frequent trains to Rome City Center (30 minute ride) and Fiumicino Airport (1 hour and 15 min ride).

                                  - 30 min drive from the Villa is the town of TIVOLI, famous worldwide for two of the most beautiful villas of the ancient Roman era and the Italian renaissance: Hadrian's Villa and Villa D'Este, both part of UNESCO's world heritage sites.

                                  - 25 min drive from the villa is the Abbey of Farfa, an ancient marvellous Benedictine abbey of the VIII century.

                                  Year Purchased: 1982

                                  About: My name is Giuseppe Micheletta. I'm from Rome, from where I run my olive oil business and the Villa business. I lived 6 years in New York City. My wife, Molly, is American, from Pittsburgh, PA. We live with our two children between Rome and the countryside villa. We like to have international guests at the villa. This is my family's countryside villa. My family has always nurtured and shared the pleasure of gathering with friends in the countryside for the family's most important festive occasions. It is in this tradition that my father built the villa in the early 1980's. An inspiring work of architecture, the three-story villa was designed by Gustavo Polimeni to evoke the lines and vision of the great American architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

                                  Why Palombara Sabina:
                                  From Rome city center it takes only thirty minutes to reach the Sabina region, where the villa is located, and discover its culture, history, and the flavors of its land. Nestled in a magical landscape, the villa is of rare beauty. For those who love tranquility, art, nature, and design, Villa La Tartaruga Sabina will provide an unforgettable vacation or event experience unlike any other.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                                  Countryside peace & tranquility + only 30 min from Rome (by train or car).
