|Property type||chateau / country house|
Less than 30 minutes from the centre of Rome, along the ancient Via Salaria, the 'Fonte di Papa” country guest house is located inside the Marcigliana Nature Reserve.
Its origins start at the end of the 1800's and is part of an old property, where main agricultural activities were wine production in the “Fonte di Papa” cellars and horse breeding.
Today, this country guest house is one of the few agricultural properties left in Rome that still maintains its original and natural predisposition for raising horses and experiencing farming life. The property consists of 10 hectares of flat land and 2 old farmhouses.
