About Giuseppe Micheletta
My name is Giuseppe Micheletta. I'm from Rome, from where I run my olive oil business and the Villa business. I lived 6 years in New York City. My wife, Molly, is American, from Pittsburgh, PA. We live with our two children between Rome and the countryside villa. We like to have international guests at the villa. This is my family's countryside villa. My family has always nurtured and shared the pleasure of gathering with friends in the countryside for the family's most important festive occasions. It is in this tradition that my father built the villa in the early 1980's. An inspiring work of architecture, the three-story villa was designed by Gustavo Polimeni to evoke the lines and vision of the great American architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
Giuseppe Micheletta purchased this villa in 1982
Why Giuseppe Micheletta chose Palombara Sabina
From Rome city center it takes only thirty minutes to reach the Sabina region, where the villa is located, and discover its culture, history, and the flavors of its land. Nestled in a magical landscape, the villa is of rare beauty. For those who love tranquility, art, nature, and design, Villa La Tartaruga Sabina will provide an unforgettable vacation or event experience unlike any other.
What makes this villa unique
Countryside peace & tranquility + only 30 min from Rome (by train or car).
Guestbook comments from the manager
“We had been looking forward to this trip for so long and it really was even better than our highest expectations. Our daughter, Giorgia (6), made a “thankful tree” of all the things she loved about this villa and our time here. They included: chasing lizards, the stars at night, the crazy rooster, the fig and olive trees, swimming, playing tennis and bocce ball, beautiful Italy at night, the hills, the flowers, all our friends and eating and spending time together as a family. She said it feels like our house because we are so happy here…..you can’t get better than that! We would love to come back again and again. Grazie mille.” Karen, Henrik, Giorgia, Mason, Siena, CT, USA.
