What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
It’s hard to define what makes a place feel cozy, though it helps when the property is off-the-beaten path and run by innkeepers with genuine hospitality like Il Borgo. At Il Borgo we are completely reinventing the idea of a bed-and-breakfast or summer house . Not only Il Borgo is at stone’s throw away from the bustling city of Rome but it is hidden in the quite and uncontaminated hill tops of Sabina. Guests feel cared for—not served—and often mistake Il Borgo for a second-home: daily life can seem light-years away while you still, somehow, feel perfectly at home. Of course, that’s not to say that Il Borgo isn’t upscale or updated; we have flat-screen televisions and WiFi. But what makes an evening at Il Borgo so memorable is sipping a glass of welcome Prosecco on your private deck and watching the sunset over the Tiber Valley while the restaurant Le Cucine del Borgo is preparing for your table.

Amazing place to stay
Our family stayed in all three apartments and they were wonderful! Beautiful rooms, beautiful village, beautiful experience. Our hostess was so obliging as we made our arrangements, and she was patient and helpful as we made adjustments. We plan to return and enjoy il Borgo again. One note: there is a door in the main bathroom of La Mola leading to an unfinished space. We opened it looking for the washing machine we thought was in La Mola and the door broke. It wasn't meant to be opened!
We truly enjoyed our stay at the the Borgo! Although it was a little hard to find the first time around, we got used to the winding roads and truly enjoyed the get away from the city. By train, one could easily access all the sites that Rome had to offer. The outstanding views and architecture made this place one of a kind! The little restaurant very close to the property offered excellent food and service. Communication with Marzina was always clear and timely; it was easy to get information and book the property. Thanks for a memorable experience!
dimora signorile e delizioso giardino a gradoni
Un soggiorno piacevolissimo in un posto incantevole nelle colline con il fascino dei secoli passati e le comodità di oggi. I nostri 2 adolescenti sono stati felici quanto noi !
Beautiful apartment and location.
Had a great holiday at il Borgo de Roccantica. Everything you needed at the apartment. Reminded us of a stately home. The views are breathtaking. You get a bit of exercise in the short walk up the hill to the pool but well worth it. A little bit of paradise
A truly amazing and beautiful property.
What a lovely and relaxing place to unwind. It was a little cool when we arrived but Ali had the fire going and we were met with such a warm welcome. The property is very well appointed and we just loved it. The view from the balcony is spectacular. The place was clean and very well laid out. The service was outstanding from the start and although our friends were a little older they found it quite easy to get around the property. I wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back.
We spent a glorious week in this charming location. We rented the tower for my parents and stayed in the main apartment with its beautiful frescos, terrace and large, well equipped kitchen. We also hired the pool where we went every evening for a dip. It was 40 degrees Celsius daily! The apartment stayed cool and was a lovely place for the whole family. Roccantica is a beautiful, medieval village, built on a steep hill. The Borgo is not steep, but once you leave the enclosure if the Borgo, it is steps, steps, steps. This was challenging for my elderly parents in the heat, so we chose our activity time carefully. Highlights were lunch in Casperia ( Johnny 's Vigna at the entrance to the old town) and day trip yo Rome( very easy). Roccantica is a calm, quiet place. For my children, books, games and art were ways to pass the time when it was too hot outside. This apartment was a great place to relax and escape the heat. Special mention of Ali and the Countessa for their help and friendship. Highly recommended!
The “Sabina Tiberina” is the area overlooking the Tevere river valley in the northern Lazio characterized by the rare beauty of its landscape. This region is one of the most enchanting and distinguishing of central Italy.
The local economy revolves around the cultivation of olive trees, which strongly characterized the surrounding nature and results in the traditional and world-renowned production of extra virgin olive oil.
Moreover, the beauty of Sabina goes well beyond its trees and mountains. This region holds an important history and many testimonies of its past. In the southern area lays the picturesque Valle del Farfa, where the famous Farfa Abbey is located. This abbey is a symbol for European monasticism and Christian civilization; also a major outpost of the Church in medieval times. The existence of the estate is already attested in the age of Charlemagne and its origins are legendary. Here, literary and artistic works of inestimable value are conserved.
The historic patrimony of the Sabina Tiberina includes sabino-roman archeological sites, such as Eretum Cures, castles, hermitages, convents, abbeys (besides Farfa, the Santa Maria in Vescovio cathedral), and several smaller old towns.
Roccantica is among these fascinating hidden places. Its existence is documented since the year 792 under the name Fundus Antiguum as a possession of the powerful Abbey of Farfa.
From the year 864, due to the advance of the Saracens, the village was walled and the name changed into Fundo in Rocca (Rocca de Antiquo).
In the 1060, Roccantica was violently attacked by the supporters of Benedict X, the rival of Nicholas II, in the struggle for papacy and was bravely freed by Robert de Hauteville, ally of Nicholas II. The battle was hard and only twelve “Roccolani” survived. The Pope Benedict X rewarded them with the feoffment of the Rock and many privileges were granted to the Rocca de Antiquo.
Today, the lovely climate of Sabina allows tourists to visit all year round: for a long stay or just for weekends. Few areas throughout Italy offer such agreeable landscapes and peaceful sights. It would be a shame to miss the pleasures it has to offer: the intense green of holly oak woods and the round shaped mountains, the tints of the fields, the vineyards, the olive tree groves embellishing the hills, the hidden villages filled with history…
Those who get here would hardly leave. Who would want to leave when sitting on a terrace in front of a nice meal seasoned with the best olive oil, a lovely glass of wine, while enjoying a stunning sunset on the hills?
Roccantica is also the place to be if you want to visit Umbria, Tuscany and Rome. It is conveniently located at 65km north of Rome, 19km from the major A1 motorway, 10km from the train station of Poggio Mirteto (with trains deserving all of the major stations in Rome and Fiumicinoairport every 25mins).
Roccantica is only pedestrian and has a small shop for basics (open only in the morning) and a very good pharmacy. The restau
