not long time ago, This place was a farm. There were 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 hasn't be easy... Then a large group of friends rent it with their families to enjoy the country from Rome. They have spent there about 10 years of holidays in summer and wintertime! Nowadays, we are enjoying this unique place.
Sometimes is not easy to share an holiday in group (family, friends, collegues) and really enjoy it if you don't have enough space and quiet.
More, nowadays this magical area maintains its beauties and silence, 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
This is not our first time in Santa Barbara and we will come back as soon as possible. We just love this country and appreciate this farmhouse which offers unique features. The rooms are clean and charming but the best is the magical fireplace where we can stay enchanted for hours talking with friends or just resting. The large table let us taste and enjoy the local delicacies all together!
The owners are helpful, friendly and and nice.
We heartily recommend this place!
We had a fantastic stay at Santa Barbara! It is a lovely property that has a big, nice garden and its very calm and quiet. The living area is spacious and the rooms are clean and nicely decorated. I would definitely recommend it!
Abbiamo apprezzato molto la localizzazione della casa, immersa nel verde e nei noccioli; la casa in se stessa é molto graziosa e veramente funzionale per grandi famiglie, la prossimità da un supermercato aggiunge un tocco di praticità. Il costo dell alloggio é adeguato, salvo che in periodo non estivo l 'aggiunta del costo del riscaldamento puo influire in maniera rilevante sul budget finale.
It's impressive the variety of beauties in this area: roman and etruscan archeology (from Sutri, to Tuscania, Tarquinia, Blera, Vulci... to Rome) medioeval features (Viterbo) Renaissance palace (Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola, Villa Lante in Bagnaia), garden-museums (Bomarzo) natural beauties (Martignano, Vico, Trevignano,Bracciano, Bolsena lakes), Natural-archeological park of Marturanum-Barbarano, or Canale Monterano with Bernini's cathedral ruins.
Tastes are ancients and full of flavor - this area is reach in a popular and tasty italian food tradition.
