RURAL VILLA, SPACE, LUXURY & PEACE, 360 VIEWS, 32 ACRES, SLEEPS 8, PRIVATE POOL

Rieti Province Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, terraces, 4 reception rooms, 1 hour north of Rome

A 'Wow!' property, and our second home.

Private, quiet, spacious villa, with own olive grove, vineyard & woodland totalling 13 Hectares (~32 acres), 1km from medieval village. Private: 12 x 6m pool (with remote control child-safe cover), boule court, extensive terraces, outside wood oven.

Rural villa sleeping 8 in peace & comfort. Floor area of approximately 300m2 on 2 ½ floors, together with a roof terrace. The house and gardens are not overlooked.

On all sides, the 360o views are impressive, and overlook the valley of the River Tiber (Tivere) to the west, agricultural land and hill villages all around with a backdrop of unpopulated mountains and the Soratte mountain to the south west. Village shops are 1.2km, a 10-15 minutes undulating walk. Supermarkets are within 10-15 minutes by car.

Rome 1 hour by train or Autostrada.

Sun (and shade available) all day. Great terraces for sundowners.

Responsive owner is delighted to interact with you with information you can share with your family and friends.

The rural Villa and its grounds is completely private and not overlooked, but close to the village. It is well back from its secondary road access, so safe for children. Either by train (station is 5 minutes away by car) or via autostrada central Rome is only an hour away.

Local places to visit:: In no particular order: Vescovio - ~20-25 minutes. Nice little restaurant next to a very old church with underground crypt. Farfa - religious little village. 8th Century I think. One or two restaurants outside village. ~30 minutes distant. Casperia - visible from the east garden. Hillside village with many steps and view and a few bars. ~30 minutes. Poggio Mirterto (good market – mostly clothes - third ? Friday of the month) Viterbo - Medieval small (like a film set!) - maybe ~1 hour. Etruscan restaurant recommended for excellent and cheap local food and grappa (Euro 1 per glass!). Some pleasant shopping streets too. Also antique shops. Gavignano – nothing much about it, but an interesting market on the third Sunday (or is the last Sunday?) of the month. Orvieto. Hill top town with a lot of history and catacombs. One hour north on Autostrada. Bagno Regio - AMAZING (walking uphill) access to medieval hill top village - 15 minutes from Orvieto and virtually unknown to non-locals.

Rome & the best beach: Ostia beach west of Rome - the best. The others are overdeveloped. This is pretty natural, with sand and dunes. Great ' Meditterane' beach restaurant & sun-bed and umbrella hire at Km 8.5 - excellent fish. Arrive early in summer as parking is along the road and limited. Tip the man who appears to look after you car about 3 Euro for the day (but that is the only charge, and if he is still there when you leave, he'll help you into the traffic flow.)

Rome: culture, shopping and people watching - 1 hour.

Some recommendations : Personal favourite restaurants and destinations notes are provided to clients by e mail.

There is a golf course at a 5 star hotel about 15 minutes away by car, but (as non-golfers) we are not sure if it's open to non-residents. Ask if its important to you, and we'll find out.

A car is recommended. Both Rome airports - about one hours drive away if the traffic is kind - have car hire companies, which do not exist locally to Stimigliano. A GPS for your car is highly recommended to navigate the country roads and/or Rome.

Collection from Stmigliano station can be arranged for arrival and departure. If arriving by train, arrival and departure by air at Fumicino Airport is easiest, although Ciampino also works.

If arriving by car, arrival by air at Ciampino makes for an easier car journey,although Fumicino also works.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The pleasure of discovering this place is only comparable to the sadness of leaving it. But for how long? If Paradise existed it should look similar to this place with Adriano as St Peter, the custodian of the keys.



Marvellous Tuscania, Viterbo and Torquinnia add to the treasures of the place: the house of the olives of Stimigliano: the place where you can discover the other treasures of the Etruscans.



If the Romans could have known this place, they wouldn’t have taken the Sabinian with them, they would marry them right here, and Rome would have been born here.



Thank you.

Extraordinary holiday resort in Italy

  • 5 of 5
Villa Elefanti fully met all our expectations to a holiday resort. A very high standard house, fully equipped and with a large swimming pool in the garden.
The location of the house is extraordinary with views in almost all directions.
We would strongly recommend the place to anyone and would very much like to come back another time.

Absolutely stunning!!

  • 4 of 5
We had a fantastic time! The villa wonderful and the views out of this world! We thoroughly enjoyed sitting out by the pool or the pizza oven and looking out over the hills. It is just absolutely gorgeous. You are very fortunate having such a lovely place. We only slept in the villa and used the kitchen for some cooking. The rest of the time we spent outside as it was just truly fantastic enjoying the views and the setting!

The villa itself had everything one could wish for. I cannot think of anything we needed that wasn't available. And the quality and standard of everything was excellent.

Adrian's information about the villa and surrounding area was excellent. Directions fantastic! Customer care 'par excellence'!

Many thanks for letting us share your lovely place. I'm convinced it won't be the last time.

Tom, Sue and family

Fit for an Emperor

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at Villa Elerfanti. The location is even more spectacular than in the photos. While we were there the weather was very hot so we didn't venture too far. The villa stayed cool and it was wonderful to be able to jump in the pool to cool down.

The villa and is very spacious, well equipped and well mainiained. I would thoroughly recommend. The owner and local representatives were very helpful (and discreet). We are a family with two teenagers.

Car: recommended

Lazio is the province of Rome. Although more accessible, less touristy and therefore cheaper than Tuscany to the north, the Lazio agricultural landscape has many similarities and hilltop villages and history. A car is recommended. Rome, culture, shopping and enjoyment in many forms - 1 hour by car or train. A great beach at Ostia. Numerous small villages steeped in history are with 15 - 30 minutes by car. In no particular order: Vescovio- good restaurant next to a very old church with underground crypt. Farfa - 8th Century religious village. Casperia - visible from the east garden, hilltop village with a few bars. Poggio Miterto (good market – mostly clothes - third Friday of the month). Orvieto, hill top town with a lot of history and catacombes. Bagno Regio (75 mins) - AMAZING (walking uphill) access to medieval hill top village - 15 minutes from Orvieto and virtually unknown to non-locals. There is a golf course about 15 minutes away at a hotel. Written info sent to clients
