Perks for the Parents

Retreat to this gorgeous traditional villa with spectacular rural views, set in the lush Lazio countryside just 1 hour from Rome. It sleeps 10. If you’re here to simply relax, you’ll love the shaded outdoor dining area where you can enjoy sunset cocktails and alfresco meals cooked on the barbecue. The tranquil swimming pool will keep the whole family entertained and offers outstanding views all the way across to the hilltop towns of Monteleone and Ginestra: you’ll be well-placed to explore the beautiful villages in this region, which are dotted with wine producers, small galleries and historic churches.

Why Kids Love it

This is a great house for children, with toys and games to enjoy during their stay as well as a cozy living room furnished with a reading nook, flatscreen TV, DVD player and game console. For parents with babies or toddlers, the host can provide a high chair and crib on request. Flexible bedroom options means kids can share with siblings, cousins or friends as they choose. For a fun family day out, visit nearby Turano Lake (20 minutes), a stunning natural reserve located at the base of Mount Navegna which has a beautiful lake and offers plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities including fishing, canoeing and hiking.

Things to Know

A security deposit of €500 is to be paid in cash to the owner upon arrival and refunded upon departure, subject to full inspection. Check in: 3pm. Check out: 10am. When minimum occupancy is booked, certain rooms may not be accessible (subject to owner's discretion). The swimming pool has graduated steps and a depth of 1.2 to 1.8m (8 x 4 m). Extra heating (from November to February) is charged on consumption and payable locally. The house has a private driveway with plenty of parking - car rental is essential. The nearest international airport is Rome (1 hour away).

About the Location

The villa is located near a village called Torricella in Sabina, in the central Italian region of Lazio. Unspoilt, with a varied landscape, Lazio features dramatic gorges and green rolling hills dotted with vineyards, olive groves and medieval castles. Activities close by include hiking, fishing, water sports and horse riding. Farfa Abbey (20 minutes away) is located in a gorgeous walled-village in the Sabine Hills, dating back to the 5th century. Spoleto (50 minutes) is another romantic town with beautiful churches and a picturesque gorge, as well as a 2-week festival every summer with programs ranging from grand opera to conferences on science and economics, classical ballet to experimental theater, chamber music and daily jazz concerts in the town square.

Accommodation Details

The property has 3 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. Stepping through the front door you’ll find a spacious sitting room leading through to the kitchen and dining area which has panoramic views of the garden and olive groves. Laid out across 3 levels, the top floor features an enormous picture window offering views across the entire property with the Sabine Hills in the distance. The main floor also has 2 bedrooms: 1 kingsize/twin with AC and an ensuite with double shower plus 1 kingsize with AC, terrace and ensuite bathroom (with a bathtub and hand-held shower). Upstairs on the first floor, there’s a flexible open space which can be used as a 4th bedroom (sleeping 2-4 with a double sofabed and 2 singles) with its own ensuite shower room and the lovely view of the pomegranate and persimmon trees within the stone-walled garden. Up again to the second floor there’s a kingsize bedroom with a walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom (with bathtub and overhead shower).

Style Notes

Historic charm. This luxurious 19th-century residence is light and airy with high quality, tasteful furnishings. It features traditional handmade terracotta tiles, beautiful stone walls and exposed hardwood beams for a rustic and authentic look, brought up-to-date with modern bathrooms and contemporary glazing to create perfect framed views of the beautiful views. We love the quirky brick-built fireplace in the kitchen, the classic painted wooden window shutters and the eclectic antique furniture.

Lazio, Italy

Rome, relaxation and an ancient monster park

This central Italian region borders Tuscany and includes Rome along with rolling hills and fabulous palazzos. In the countryside you’ll find mountains, lakes and fabulous castles and gardens, including the 16th Century Bormazo Monster Park, a sculpture garden of stone ghouls, while Rome of course is home to some of the most evocative architecture and ancient ruins you'll find anywhere in the world. Lazio also borders the Mediterranean and there are beach resorts along the coast, theme parks and thermal spas for mom’s day off, too.
