Whomever loves Tuscany, will also love the Sabina (Lazio)! Just above Rome, in the 'campagna' of the medieval village Roccantica, lies Borgo Gaia Sabina.

An ideal base for visiting cities such as Rome, Siena, Viterbo, Orvieto, Arezzo, etc., but also for a day at the beach of the Tyrrhenian Sea.

The house is located in the heart of the Sabina Bassa, according to some Italians: Italy's best kept secret. This region has picturesque ancient villages like Roccantica, Casperia, Poggio Catino and Cantalupo, at a distance of less than 10 minutes. The largest town of Poggio Mirteto with a variety of shops and lively Friday market is a 15 minute drive away. And all within 45 minutes by car or train from the center of Rome!

Borgo Gaia Sabina, you will not be bored. Besides the beautiful hiking and biking trails on hills and olive groves, it is possible to go horse riding and tennis. There are about nine golf courses in the immediate vicinity of Rome. Yoga, massages, cooking classes, markets: there really is something for everyone.

Although the olive presses only work from October to January, there are guided tours accompanied by an experienced guide throughout the year.

For beach lovers we recommend the beaches of Fregene and to Tarquinia, these are within an hour's drive from the hamlet. Tarquinia his tour of the Etruscan tombs highly recommended.

For winter sports enthusiasts (cross country and downhill skiing) are the Monte Terminillo near Rieti (one hour) and Campo Felice Abruzzo (half hour).

For shoppers, there are, of course, besides the shops of Rome, Monte Soratte Mall (20 minutes) and the Porta Di Roma Mall (35 minutes). Both are located directly on the A1.

For culture is within 45 minutes drive not only the eternal city of Rome, but also with the famous Duomo Orvieto, Siena, the scary sculpture of Bomarzo and the thermal baths of Viterbo. Pompeii is within 3 hours away.

There are over 25 restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the Borgo to choose from to go for a delicious and affordable meal. Remember pranzo (lunch) on Sunday, the most important meal of the week for the Italians. Reservations are recommended.

Throughout the year there are festivities in the small villages for the most diverse reasons. The celebration of Ferragosto (August 15) in Roccantica is known throughout the area.

Sabina is often called Italy's best kept secret. This region, easily accessible from the motorway A1 is in an area with no industry. As far as the eye can see, there are olive - and vineyards. The hills of the Sabina are the foothills of the Apennines, with altitudes up to 1200 meters. The villages are ancient and each village has its own castle. Borgo Gaia Sabina is located in the outskirts of Roccantica, a village on top of a hill, an exceptionally fine example of medieval architecture. This small village has only 632 inhabitants, but is known for its typical Italian village festivals.

The largest town in this region Poggio Mirteto. The train from Poggio Mirteto takes you within 45 minutes to the center of Rome (Tiburtina Station). Parking at the station is free.

Luxueuze en zeer comfortabele villa op prachtlokat

  • 5 of 5

Een prachtig zeer ruime villa met alle privacy. Het huis heeft een oude stijl maar is redelijk nieuw, en iuit prachtige materialen en met zeer veel smaak opgetrokken. Waar mogelijk zijn de oude materialen gebruikt (traptreden), en waar nodig nieuw modern materiaal (schuifpui). Zeer comfortabele inrichting, een meer dan volledig geoutilleerde keuken waar het een genoegen is om voor grote gezelschappen de maaltijd te bereiden. Ruime sortering serviesgoed, bak- en kookbenodigdheden, schalen. Heldere informatie over de bediening van de keuken apparatuur.

Geschikte uitvalsbasis om Rome te bezoeken. Mede omdat de snelweg gemakkelijk te bereiken is, zijn ook de mooie steden van Umbrie, hoewel wat verder weg, goed bereikbaar voor een dagtrip.

Met behulp van een redelijk goede routebeschrijving vonden wij in het holst van de nacht het huis, De ontvangst was uiterst hartelijk en Simonetta en Irene hadden een fantastisch maal voor ons bereid en de eerste boodschappen klaargezet. Het huis was piccobello in orde.

Verder troffen we een hartelijke ontvangstfax aan van de huiseigenaren met nadere uitleg en verwijzingen in de omgeving. Tot twee maal toe hebben we gebruik gemaakt van de heerlijke keuken van de lokale trattoria. Wat een aanrader!

Tips om het huis nog aangenamer te maken:

- het zwembad was niet goed schoon en is ook niet schoon geworden

- de eettafelstoelen van het terras zijn te laag, plus schuiven ze niet licht over de

stenen vloer; de gasten in de slaapkamer onder de vloer hebben daar last van

- het huis was naar onze smaak iets teveel prive ingericht: fotoboeken alom,

dames hygienebenodigheden op het toilet; advies om wat meer persoonlijke

spullen op te bergen.

Top villa

  • 5 of 5

Prachtig gelegen, van alle gemakken voorziene villa op een heuvel gelegen, met schitterend uitzicht over de vallei vanuit de olijfboomgaard. Het huis is erg comfortabel, heeft verschillende mooie slaapkamers met eigen luxe badkamer en biedt veel privacy.

In de omgeving zijn veel faciliteiten, zoals winkels, cafés en restaurants. Rome is in een klein uur eenvoudig bereikbaar.

Een aanrader!!
