not long time ago, This beautiful and rare place was an ancient farm. There were 200 cows for milk, horses, pigs, chickens... And in the 15th century, long time ago, in the more ancient and impressive building, there was a convent.
The restoration of that place was not easy, but is has been done with a group of friends for their families. They have spent there about 10 years of holidays in summer and wintertime! Nowadays, we are trying to maintain this unique place with its simple but comfortable elements, and continuing to learn, by hosting other people, how to respect nature day by day.
Nowadays this magical area maintains its beauties and quiet, surrounded by the same, ancient and intact landscape of wood and hills, water sources, cultivated fields.
A volte non serve allontanarsi troppo da casa per andare in vacanza e nquesta è stata davvero una vacanza fantastica in compagnia di tanti amici. La grandezza della struttura è unica vicino Roma e la possibilità di organizzarsi con tante persone ed avere a disposizione l'ampio parco e la splendida piscina in totale privacy e riservatezza ci hanno fatto godere di una settimana rilassante e rigenerante. Vicinissima a Capranica e ad appena 40 minuti da Roma sembra fatta apposta per festeggiare con amici e parenti eventi e ricorrenze; se avete dei bambini poi Santa Barbara è davvero il luogo perfetto perchè lo spazio a disposizione per giocare è ampio, ben curato e totalmente sicuro.
Ottima la pulizia e la comunicazione con la proprietà che si occupa direttamente della struttura, sempre disponibili per qualsiasi tipo di necessità ma mai invadenti (cosa per me fondamentale). Insomma non mi vengono in mente punti ìdevboli da segnalare se non quello di nonn averlo scoperto prima
It's impressive the variety of beauties in this area: roman and etruscan archeology (from Sutri, to Tarquinia, to Rome) medioeval features (Viterbo) Renaissance palace (Caprarola, Villa Lante in Bagnaia), garden-museums (Bomarzo) natural beauties (Martignano and Bracciano lakes), Natural park of Marturanum-Barbarano.
Tastes are ancients and full of flavor - this area is reach in a popular and tasty italian food tradition, and some restaurants preserve this aspect which is more and more rare and destroyed by wild tourism.
