Overview

About the property

Three bedrooms with two bathrooms sleeps up to 8

Casa Dolce Aria has a large living/dining room, a fully fitted kitchen, a master bedroom with king-size bed and en-suite shower room, a second bedroom with king-size bed, a third bedroom with two single beds and a family bathroom. The mezzanine above the living room has a double bed.

Outside there is a covered barbecue and eating area, a pizza oven, laundry room, terraces with views over the valley, swimming pool and the pool house with its own living room and terrace. The villa is furnished with a mix of the antique and the modern and there is a selection of books, DVDs and games to provide home entertainment. There is a large oven, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer and electric kettle. Bed linen and towels are provided.

The Grounds: The house is on a hillside, and the grounds of the house descend in a series of terraces. The top level has car parking space, a tree shaded lawn and a covered paved area with a barbecue and table and chairs. Close by is the pizza oven, although that is for people who know how to use it. A flight of steps leads down to another terrace and the swimming pool, with sun loungers for relaxing and soaking up the sun. Close by is the pool house, which has its own terrace and a furnished living room that can be used for changing or relaxing. The lowest part of the garden is wooded.

Although the top level of the grounds is fenced, there are some terraced sections that are not. We would therefore advise parents that small children need to be supervised when out of the house.

The Village: Montasola is a small community but it has a pharmacy, post office, restaurant, bar, and kids' playground all within walking distance. The nearest shop which is well equipped for daily needs is 10 minutes drive away. The bar in the upper village of Montasola is in a park and is a good place to enjoy a drink or ice-cream.

For many people part of the enjoyment of a holiday in Italy is eating out and sampling both the local and wider Italian cuisine. The local restaurant is within easy walking distance of Casa Dolce Aria and specialises in dishes from both Sabina and Sardinia. It also does take-away pizzas.

Sabina is famous for its olive oil, and you can buy oil from the co-operative in the village.

The Area: The hills and woods of the area are criss-crossed with paths, so it is a great area for walking. Some of the mountain paths can be traversed on horseback or mountain bike as well as by foot. There are riding centres within a few miles of the casa. Most of the towns and villages in the district are small, but all have interesting buildings and things to see. Hilltop villages are everywhere, usually dominated by a church spire or ancient tower. The valleys are green, traversed by streams and rivers most of which eventually flow into the Tevere. There are a number of lakes across the district and rivers and lakes can be fished for trout and other freshwater fish.

And finally, there is Rome, just over an hour away by car or train, with its world famous buildings and attractions.

Casa Dolce Aria

  • 3 of 5

We had an enjoyable holiday in this pleasant hilltop town with its friendly local restaurant. The night of our arrival was spoiled by the unfortunate coincidence that both WC's were unusable (1 blocked and 1 cistern broken). These were resolved very swiftly the following morning. No apology received.

Owner's Response: It was unfortunate that there was a plumbing problem shortly after this guest arrived but as noted we were able to sort it out quickly.

Well equipped and tranquil stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was well equipped and spacious. A typical rustic Italian house set in stunning and peaceful location.

As frequent Italian villa renters, this villa met all our expectations. The location is remote and a car is certainly essential but the local trains are easily accessible.

The pool is set in a lovely private location away from the house and the nearby terrace offers outstanding views.

The local restaurant, about 150 metres away, provided excellent service, advice and food.

The only issue we had was getting the hang of the new Italian recycling system but that was us!

Great info and guidance from the owners before arrival and no problems while at the house, many thanks!

Great views and value for money

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our holidays. The house is spacious. The nets in front of the window let breezes in but keep insects outside. The kitchen is equiped well and we liked that it was filled with food and drinks. We used the BBQ each evening and the Pool was not very large but large and deel enough to relax and play with the kids. The views are really worth booking this property.

Map

Car: necessary

Holiday villa with pool and spectacular views, situated close to the medieval hilltop village of Montasola in the Sabina hills of central Italy. An ideal location for visiting the towns, villages and lakes of Lazio and Umbria. The eternal city of Rome is only 65 km away. Sabina is famous for its olive oil and is a great area for sightseeing, walking, fishing, eating or just relaxing.
