ROME COUNTRYSIDE VILLA: POOL, WEDDINGS, COOKING SCHOOL, SAUNA, TENNIS

Palombara Sabina Villa Rental Photos and Description

8 bedroom Villa to sleep 16-21 in gorgeous countryside 30 min from ROME

Villa La Tartaruga Sabina offers more than a simple vacation. It offers a unique experience: the best of the countryside, the city and the Italian tradition in one location: convenient railway links and easy auto routes to ROME make it possible to combine the rustic tranquility of a magical landscape with the excitement of the Eternal City.

The family who owns the Villa has always nurtured and shared the pleasure of gathering with friends in the countryside for the family's most important festive occasions. It is in this tradition that the Villa was created.

WEDDING PACKAGES: the Villa organizes wedding receptions and offers wedding packages for those looking for a special wedding overseas.

COOKING SCHOOL / CULINARY VACATIONS: starting in 2015, the Villa will offer cooking school/culinary vacation packages for most of the year, which will include daily meals, professional cooking classes, food-related excursions etc.

CATERED MEALS & PIZZA EVENTS: Catered meals can be arranged upon request. The Villa also organizes pizza events, with a pizza chef cooking pizzas in the Villa's outdoor wood-fired oven.

EXTRA BEDS: 5-6 extra beds can be added in the Villa + 30-40 beds available at next door Agriturismo.

Villa La Tartaruga Sabina is a rare find!

For further details, please visit the Villa’s website: www.latartarugasabina.com or contact the owner.

VILLA GARDEN: Villa La Tartaruga Sabina is situated in a lush 2-hectare garden surrounded by hundred-year-old olive groves, cypresses, cedars, orange, cherry, and lemon trees as well as a wide range of flowers. Outside the fenced garden, there are 24 hectares of open field.

There is a covered terrace with several tables, chairs, and seating arrangements with couches. Within the landscaped garden is a gazebo with a table and chairs as well as a barbecue and wood-burning oven. There is a large swimming pool (20m x 10m) and private pool house with showers and a sauna. The pool is FENCED (photos were taking prior to fencing it).

Access to the villa is via a paved road three kilometers from the main road of Salaria and parking is available within the property grounds.

INTERIORS (800m2): The interior provides an atmosphere of art, culture, and appreciation for the finest that modern design has to offer, both stimulating the intellect and giving pause to reflect and relax in an environment made warm by the richness and elegance of its design details. The spacious living room has couches, a fireplace, satellite TV, and floor-to-ceiling glass windows that look onto the gardens. There is a separate dining room and the kitchen is equipped with a cook-top, oven, microwave, and dishwasher. On the ground floor a beautiful windowed gallery leads to a separate suite of three bedrooms that offers direct access to the garden. Each of these three bedrooms has a 160 cm queen-sized bed and an en-suite bathroom with a sink, toilet, and shower (one bathroom with shower & tub).

A beautiful wooden staircase of 12 steps leads to five comfortable bedrooms. All bedrooms are air conditioned.

In the Winter of 2015, the villa will be upgraded and we'll be offering cooking school/culinary vacation packages for most of the year, which will include daily meals, professional cooking classes, food-related excursions etc. A new big kichen will be built and all the bedrooms and bathrooms will be upgraded. Ech bedroom will have its own en-suite bathroom with shower. The two bedrooms with balcony will be upgraded to a luxury level with en-suite bathroom with shower and jacuzy.

Guestbook comments from the manager
“We had been looking forward to this trip for so long and it really was even better than our highest expectations. Our daughter, Giorgia (6), made a “thankful tree” of all the things she loved about this villa and our time here. They included: chasing lizards, the stars at night, the crazy rooster, the fig and olive trees, swimming, playing tennis and bocce ball, beautiful Italy at night, the hills, the flowers, all our friends and eating and spending time together as a family. She said it feels like our house because we are so happy here…..you can’t get better than that! We would love to come back again and again. Grazie mille.” Karen, Henrik, Giorgia, Mason, Siena, CT, USA.

My name is Giuseppe Micheletta. I'm from Rome, from where I run my olive oil business and the Villa business. I lived 6 years in New York City. My wife, Molly, is American, from Pittsburgh, PA. We live with our two children between Rome and the countryside villa. We like to have international guests at the villa. This is my family's countryside villa. My family has always nurtured and shared the pleasure of gathering with friends in the countryside for the family's most important festive occasions. It is in this tradition that my father built the villa in the early 1980's. An inspiring work of architecture, the three-story villa was designed by Gustavo Polimeni to evoke the lines and vision of the great American architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

Giuseppe Micheletta purchased this villa in 1982

From Rome city center it takes only thirty minutes to reach the Sabina region, where the villa is located, and discover its culture, history, and the flavors of its land. Nestled in a magical landscape, the villa is of rare beauty. For those who love tranquility, art, nature, and design, Villa La Tartaruga Sabina will provide an unforgettable vacation or event experience unlike any other.

Countryside peace & tranquility + only 30 min from Rome (by train or car).

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
Amazing is the only word to describe our time at the villa and the villa owner Giuseppe. We stayed in the villa for a week in May and through out this time we were married in Rome and had our reception at the villa. Giuseppe organised everything and nothing was too much trouble. From the minute we arrived at the villa everyone felt instantly relaxed and enjoyed the luxury of the surroundings both adults and children alike had plenty to do to occupy their time. The train station is only 3mins drive away and the train runs regularly to Rome.
Our wedding day was perfect and everyone loved the day and continually speak about how wonderful the reception was at the villa. The location, food, band, waiter service, villa chefs and especially the wedding cake were some of the many highlights not forgetting the beautiful sunset made our wedding so special. We could not recommend the villa enough and for any one who is looking to have the most romantic and beautiful wedding this is your place and Giuseppe is your man to ensure every detail is perfect.

Outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5
Our first family holiday and so wanted somewhere very special to spend our time together. There were 9 adults, 1 child and a baby, all were well catered for here.
You won't be disappointed!! The pool is the highlight. We spent every day at some point in it and sunbathing on the loungers.
All the bedrooms have their own locks and Giuseppe will arrange beds for you to suit, whether you want singles or doubles. Everyone said they had more than enough space and there are lots of places to go in the villa if you want some privacy.
We also had our own pizza night with a pizza chef. This, we thought, was very expensive but we were celebrating our son's birthday and so was a special occasion.
There are many reasonable restaurants in the local area, where everyone was very helpful and really friendly.
We had a couple of day trips to Rome, which was easily accessible by the local train. Buy travel cards from the local garage, as they are cheaper but you can ask the ticket collector on the train as we did on our first trip.
Thanks Giuseppe and Andrea for your kind hospitality. My son is now desperate for us to get a German Shepherd to join our family after spending time with yours. We felt very safe.

Great villa, excellent base for a family holiday

  • 4 of 5
The villa is well appointed & comfortably accomodated our party of 13 with ages ranging from 1 to 70. Bedrooms are a good size as are the living areas & the extensive grounds & large pool meant plenty of space for all. Great views & choice of internal or external dining areas was really nice (we never ate indoors). Pool & patio area are large & well maintained & we spent a lot of time relaxing there. Tennis court needs some maintenance but was fine for a family knock about.
The train station is 5 minutes drive with plenty of parking & Rome is then only 30 minutes away. We went into Rome on many occasions with this easy access helping us to get in to see the many sites. On the days we didn't sightsee we were able to relax by the pool & work on our tans so we had the best of both worlds. Choice of local supermarkets a 10-15 minute drive away & some local towns less than 30 minutes away by car. Guiseppe & Andrea made us very welcome & helped arrange an anniversary dinner at the villa before we arrived which went very well. The pizza oven was also a big hit with the kids who loved making & eating their own creations! Overall a great location for seeing Rome & the surrounding areas whilst staying in comfort.

Amazing Experience - Dream Come True Wedding!

  • 5 of 5
We cannot say enough to describe the amazing experience that we and our family had in La Tartaruga Sabina this last May.

The villa provided the perfect setting for our families to get together in the days leading up to our wedding ceremony in the Vatican. We could not have dreamt of a better wedding day and location!

Giuseppe, the owner/manager, went out of his way to help us and our families have the best experience possible. Giuseppe not only helped us coordinate our wedding reception at his villa, but he was invaluable as a resource to help us navigate through Rome and the challenging logistics for a wedding in the Vatican.

The villa itself was amazing, very well managed, clean, and spacious, perfect for a large family getaway. We highly recommend staying in La Tartaruga Sabina, you will not regret it.

Beautiful villa, great management

  • 5 of 5
My fiancé, family and friends stayed at La Tartaruga Sabina for our destination wedding. The villa is gorgeous, clean and well maintained; it is located in the peaceful and picturesque countryside near Palombara, yet a quick 3 minute drive to the local commuter train (with easy access to Rome or Fiumicino Airport). Long story short, the property is beautiful, functional, complete with all amenities, and will certainly exceed your expectations based on the limited amount of information that can possibly be conveyed on a website.

Aside from the physical property, what truly sets La Tartaruga apart is its management. Giuseppe is extremely competent, honest and diligent. Planning a holiday/wedding requires much work, and Giuseppe will do everything that is humanely possible to organize your party and reduce your stress. He’s obviously a very busy person, yet somehow manages to respond to any request very quickly; he’s one of the most organized people I’ve ever met, and will think of your needs before you can. I believe that Giuseppe’s motivation transcends that of simple monetary profit, he sincerely wants his guests to have a great time.

So on behalf of my family and friends I’d like to thank Giuseppe again for helping us have one of the best weeks of our lives; it was truly memorable and wouldn’t have been possible without him.

Regards,

Alex

Villa Tartaruga is a lovely place to be

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed the villa with 16 persons in age of 7 to 75.The villa was clean and the garden well maintained. There was enough room for everybody. Especially the pool is very nice for children. It is necessary to rent a car. Supermarkets are more than 10 km from the villa. The trainstation is at 3 km. From there it is easy to make a trip to Rome.
