A relaxing rustic location with panoramic views

  • 4 of 5

This is a surprisingly very spacious house that easily accommodated our 11 people. On three floors, the rooms are big, the bedrooms self-contained with their own bathrooms, and an old farmhouse kitchen with large eating/sitting downstairs. Additional adults were housed in the pool-house with its own cooking facilities. The location, with views of surrounding hills and towns, immediately made us feel very relaxed. The property is extensive and we went for walks through its olive grooves. We also spent a lot of time in the pool, large enough to easily accommodate 5 children and 6 adults, and a dream to swim in with its open views to the distant hills. The owner was very helpful and accommodating, doing what she could to make our stay a comfortable one. Having a cleaner was a huge asset for such a large house. The children enjoyed exploring the grounds or playing football on the lawn. The nearest town, Poggio Mirteto, had an excellent supermarket, although it is a small country town, and some delightful gelato. It is in the countryside but with easy access to Rome. Cars are needed for visiting other towns in the area. Except for the mosquitoes (July-Aug.) this was a perfect holiday - no one wanted to leave!

A wonderful holiday experience

  • 5 of 5

We were a family group of 9, 6 adults and 3 children aged between 10 and 12. We chose the villa because of its size, availability of a swimming pool and proximity to Rome. It exceeded all our expectations. The house is large, well equipped, and comfortable. Many rooms contained antique furniture which added an elegant backdrop to our stay, but because there was so much other space we never felt that we had to live in a museum and watch the kids at all times. We ate outside on the patio under awnings, a delightful alfresco affair. Surrounding the villa were gardens and orchards providing space and beauty. The swimming pool was fabulous. Large, deep, and well maintained it provided hours of enjoyment for the children and relief from the heat for everyone. The views from the villa were splendid. Sabina is a beautiful part of Italy, with hill-top villages and olive groves providing a pleasing landscape. We spent several days in Rome, taking the local commuter train that runs every half hour for much of the day for a very modest cost. Orvieto is 45 minutes away by car, and Sienna and Assisi are within a 2 hour drive, with lots of interesting places in between. Paola, the owner, is a charming and welcoming host. All in all our stay was great, and we recommend the villa most highly.

This villa is exceptionally beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The location is beautiful & peaceful, with scenic views of the surrounding countryside. There are many lovely places to visit nearby, as well as Rome, however we found that we enjoyed spending time simply relaxing by the wonderful pool. The children loved it too. The villa is very well equipped with everything you need, beautifully furnished, and there is a wonderful dining room fit for a banquet.

Très belle maison ... et piscine!

  • 5 of 5

Cette maison au milieu des champs d'oliviers est très agréable à vivre. Elle est dotée de pièces spacieuses très bien meublées et décorées et pour la plupart climatisées, pendant notre séjour nettoyées trois fois par semaine. Le jardin est magnifique et la piscine est très belle et immense. La grande cuisine est bien équipée et une table sur la terrasse permet de profiter des repas dehors sous des parasols géants. Située à 50 kilomètres de Rome, elle permet de visiter la capitale tout en profitant du calme de la campagne. Seul petit points négatif: absence de lumière suffisante dehors pour les repas du soir ; nous avons utilisé des bougies.
