Rieti Province Castle Rental Photos and Description
sleeps 19 +4 on sofa beds stunning courtyard with views over the Sabina hills
Palazzo Forani is an impressive 16th Century villa with a 13th Century tower, one of only five remaining of the fortifications of the medieval stone village Casperia, perched on a hilltop in the beautiful Sabina hills just 45 minutes from Rome. The property consists in extensive accommodation for 15 people with a communal kitchen in the Granary and 4/5 people with kitchen facilities in the Torrione, a large courtyard, marvellous gardens and breathtaking views. The restoration of both villa and Torrione is to the highest quality and the atmosphere of long past times is preserved in every nook. Originally bought by the Maldura family in Napoleonic times, it was inherited by the Forani barons who have left furnishings & layout almost as they were for centuries. Newly installed bathrooms and central heating being the only exceptions! Casperia is a wonderful stone village, entirely pedestrianised with its narrow, winding stone paved streets & unexpected and amazing views between the houses.
Casperia and the surrounding area boast numerous festivals and village fetes during the year. In August, it's the Stringozzi fete, a marvellous homemade pasta dish that is the centre of this delightful festival. In September, the Festa di S.Maria with dancing and naturally food and wine (no festival is without these necessary staples!) and in October it's the Polenta and Castagne fete. June sees the Irish festival and countless are the celebrations in July just because it's summer! Ask us for information if you'd like your holiday to coincide with one of these charming occasions.
