History of the Villa: The Santa Cristina Estate belongs, for many generations, to one of the most old aristocratic family in the Sabina, the counts Orsolini Cencelli.
The main Villa, Santa Cristina, was built in the second half of the 18th Century. Its ancient walls have been through periods of ancient and recent history. In fact, in the land adjacent to the villa, there are several archaeological finds dating back to the second century BC., the Etruscan period, and which now form part of the collection of the Museum of Magliano Sabina
During World War II it was used as a hospital by German soldiers.
After the War, Count Valentino Orsolini Cencelli retired to his private life there. He was the father of the present owner, and was a famous Italian politician of the '30s, best known for directing the draining of the Pontine Marshes, and for founding the cities of Sabaudia and Latina.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable dans une villa superbe, ombragée d'arbres centenaires et jouissant d'une vue merveilleuse. L' accueil est très chaleureux, le domaine et la villa sont extrêmement bien tenus, et nous avons pleinement profité de la piscine, du tennis ... Magliano Sabina et Calvi del'Umbria, les deux villages proches sont charmants et leurs habitants d'une grande gentillesse . Connaissant déjà la merveilleuse Orvieto, Nous avons découvert Viterbe, et de nombreux autres villages et lieux et paysages pleins de charme et surprenants, peu connus. Des lieux choisis, peu de touristes (sauf italiens) : grands habitués de la Toscane "doc" et de l'Ombrie très fréquentées, nous avons apprécié notre chance . Nous espérons renouveler l'expérience !. Grazie ancora .
