Villa Poggio Sommavilla is a beautifully renovated farmhouse in the lovely Sabina region of Lazio. The property is situated on the crest of a hill near the village of Poggio Sommavilla and has magnificent views over the Tiber valley. It is just a 15-minute drive to the Ponzano-Sorrate exit on the Rome/Florence motorway , and therefore within 45 minutes you can be in the centre of Rome, either by car or (advisable) by train from the station of Stimigliano, a 10-minute drive from the house. Ideally situated for excursions to Umbria, Tuscany and the rest of Lazio.
Villa Poggio Sommavilla consists of the main house, 250 sq.m., almost entirely air-conditioned, and a small guest cottage (27 sq.m.) , air-conditioned, surrounded by a private property of 14 hectares. The beautiful garden slopes down to a large swimming pool, (15m x 6m), and is filled with a harmonic blend of roses, cacti and olive trees.
Access to the property is from the small village of Stimigliano by means of a quiet secondary road
The main farmhouse has direct access to the garden and a panoramic terrace with a pergola equipped for pleasant outdoor dining (with a barbeque and outside pizza oven).
The ground floor has a large living room with fireplace and satellite TV with a large plasma screen.
The main house has air-conditioning or fans in most rooms and is furnished with cosy country-style furniture. the guest cottage is air-conditioned and there is central heating through-out.
The top floor of the farmhouse can also be accessed from an external staircase typical of Italian farm properties.
There is another TV with plasma screen in the master bedroom.
A large SMA supermarket with all kinds of food and basic shopping is near Stimigliano - a 10-minute drive from the house.
LOCATION: 5 km from Collevecchio (food shops and offices of all kinds), 50 km Rome (can easily be reached in 30 minutes also by a train from the Stimigliano station) and the Bolsena and Bracciano lakes, 60 km Viterbo, 65 km Orvieto, 90 km Tarquinia (Etruscan city) and 100 km Assisi.
This property is very flexible for numbers of guests. It can basically sleep 8 in the main house.
However there is also an annexe which will sleep another two guests, in a twin bedroom with a bathroom. The vharge of the use of this annexe is 300 euros per week.
We were 11 people - small and big visiting this villa.
The villa has a big a beautiful garden and the pool area is also very nice.
A nice caretaker met us, unfortunately did not speak a word of English and thus was not able to assist us with problems that arised
The aircondition in the small house did not work so we were not able to use this.
The electric output in the villa was not large enough to service the aircondition. Many times day and night we had to switch the fuses back in position
One evening the water supply broke down and it took hours to get it back.
The villa is remote and there is nothing around. You need a car for shopping, restaurants etc.
The rooms are small, the kitchen is too small for more than one chef.
The WIFI was extremely unstable and not trustworthy for working.
Price much too high.
Poggio Sommavilla is 10Km from the Ponzano-Soratte exit on the Rome to Florence A1 motorway. This exit point on the A1 is the nearest to Roma Nord toll barrier; this means the property is just 45 minutes drive from the centre of Rome. Alternatively, if you wish to avoid Rome traffic, you can take a train to Rome from Stimigliano Station which is just 10 minutes drive from the farmhouse. Being to close to the motorway also means that the house is ideally situated for excursions to Umbria, Tuscany and the rest of the Lazio region:- Perugia, Orvieto, Viterbo, Bomarzo, Lake Bolsena just to mention a few !
There is an excellent small restaurant / pizzeria just 2 Km from house called 'Da Lina' . Just off the secondo exit on the A1, Magliano Sabina, at Frangellini there is the famous restaurant La Pergola (1* Michelin).
