Poggio Mirteto is a small town of Sabina, a hilly area located between the province of Rome, the Tuscany and the Umbria, just 40 Km north of the city of Rome. Its old town is a medieval village, located on the top of a hill, beneath the Cathedral and the Episcopal Palace. Pedestrian streets and old houses recreate the charming atmosphere of the ancient times.
The apartment is located on the second floor of a house originally built in the foothills of the walls of the 15th-century, overlooking the hills of the Tiber Valley and the Monte Soratte. It is exposed towards south, so the sun is entering from the windows all the day, from sunrise to sunset, creating a luminous atmosphere.
The house is situated within the pedestrian streets of the old village, but at a distance of a hundred meters from 18th-century square of Poggio Mirteto, where are shops and amenities of a modern town; this position represents the privilege of not being isolated, but adjacent to a pleasant urban area, which can be reached on foot in a few minutes; furthermore the house has an outdoor garden under the walls, with many fruit trees, a terrace overlooking the green valley, and a small garden building, with a fully equipped kitchen, fireplace and bathroom; in the garden you can spend your time to take a sunbath, take an open air shower in the hot hours, cook your food, fire the barbecue, and dine under the trees: the garden is equipped with a full lighting system which can create a charming atmosphere in the evening.
The recent restoration has been done with great care and respect of the ancient structures, with the old beams, and furnished with antique and modern pieces, for a comfortable use of our guests: a very well equipped kitchen with cooking fireplace for grilled plantains, one large double bedroom, one studio single bedroom, and two bathrooms.
The location and the services of the municipality of Poggio Mirteto make it a great base for exploring attractively high Lazio, Southern Tuscany and Umbria, and Rome itself. A train connects Poggio Mirteto with Rome (40 – 50 minutes) and Fiumicino Airport (90 minutes). It is very easy to park the car near the house, or rent one to visit the nearby places. Easily accessible from the house there are walking trails, recreation areas (swimming pool, tennis, villas, etc), and typical local restaurants.
