The villa has three double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large bright open planned living area. It has a private secluded garden and access to more than an acre of olive grove where the swimming pool is located and where you will find of quiet spaces to relax, in sun or shade.
At the front of the villa you have a large sunny terrace with stunning views of the surrounding countryside & hills and often breathtaking sunsets in the evenings.

Walking in Sabina: Sabina is a paradise for walkers of every level.
If you like easy walking, you can explore the quiet country roads and paths in the valley. You can enjoy the splendid views and glimpses of country life as well as the chance to stop off at one of the local villages for a short rest and refreshment at a local bar.
If you prefer something more demanding, you can take to the local hills for longer walks along stony paths with climbs of 500/600 metres where proper equipment and walking experience are a must.
We have spent much time exploring the local countryside and organising monthly walks for our local friends and would be only to happy to provide you with information to help you get the most from your walking.

Michael was born in London and spent the last half of his career as a lecturer and academic manager in the Business School of a Further and Higher Education College. He now finds time to enjoy his interests in photography and walking as well as maintaining his skills on the computer. He has been exploring the local hills and countryside and organises monthly 'Sunday' walks for local friends. Several of his photographs of the local area are visible on Google Earth.
